That’s about all Justin “JZ” Ziegler had after 2007’s economic recession brought layoffs to Atlanta’s non-profit sector. Once a development officer for the Southeast’s largest AIDS service organization, he found himself counting coins and new contacts after early morning shifts at a busy Midtown coffee shop.

A longtime student of Atlanta’s property market, JZ had at many times considered a career in real estate. In 2011, the newly formed Common Ground Real Estate team of Keller Williams Realty Metro Atlanta gave him the opportunity he’d been looking for: work your way up and thank us when you’re at the top.

After several months of catching deals dropped by other agents and turning those coffeehouse contacts into clients, JZ became a productive full-time REALTOR®. 

Within a year, as a principal at Common Ground, he moved the team from rented desks in cube land to a permanent storefront in the heart of downtown Decatur.

Common Ground now boasts 25+ REALTORS® supported by Ziegler as president, a full-time director of operations and marketing team. We’re confident that our balance of sales history, client service and community involvement brings a winning scenario to the closing table.

We’re proud of the recognitions from our broker, the Atlanta Association of REALTORS® and several local publications, but our greatest accomplishments are the lifelong partnerships forged with clients who’ve become friends, one transaction at the time.
