The 10′ ceilings besiege the interior of the home; accompanied by the vast yet inviting rooms throughout. This home is an idyllic icon within the Brookwood Hills neighborhood. This area of Buckhead divulges some of Atlanta’s leading restaurants, like that of Watershed and Houston’s. The covetable Ansley Golf Club is nothing but a short drive from the home, encouraging community engagement.

Beacham Donates $22,650 to Make-A-Wish®

During the second quarter of 2019, Beacham & Company, REALTORS® agents and staff raised funds for Make-A-Wish® Georgia, donating a total of $22,650 to the non-profit between April 1st and June 30th.

Make-A-Wish® Georgia will use the money raised to ‘grant wishes’ to children facing critical illnesses. Since the chapter’s inception in 1995, it has impacted a staggering 8,000 young lives, granting once-in-a-lifetime opportunities and experiences to “wish kids” and their families. Childhood illnesses can be heartbreaking and daunting for children and their families to endure; the mission of Make-A-Wish® Georgia is to bring light to these situations that seem unbearably dark, and to provide each child with a reason to keep fighting.

For some wish kids, this may look like a “wish to go” (for example, to Disney World). For others, it could be a “wish to have” (a treehouse, a puppy…), a “wish to meet” (perhaps their favorite athlete, actor, or singer), or even a “wish to be” (i.e. an astronaut for a day).

Make-A-Wish® Georgia was chosen as this quarter’s Beacham Gives Back beneficiary in part due to a matching opportunity which was presented by the organization’s national chapter. Because Beacham & Company, REALTORS® agents and staff raised more than $20,000, the Make-A-Wish® national chapter matched Beacham’s contribution 2-1, resulting in an astounding total of $67,950 entering Make-A-Wish® Georgia’s coffers!

This September, Beacham & Company, REALTORS® agents and staff will have the exciting opportunity to actually meet one of the children whose wishes their donations made possible, and to participate in a “wish reveal,” during which the child will learn that their wish is going to be granted. Stay tuned for more at that time – we can’t wait!

If you would like to submit a charity for consideration, you can email us at [email protected]. Please keep in mind, that must be approved by our agents and should give away a vast majority of the money they raise to the causes they support. If you know a Beacham agent, we encourage you to contact them directly about participation in this program.

Your home is where you will close the door at the end of the day- it is your refuge and sanctuary. It is a place where we celebrate the milestones in our lives with friends and family and it is an investment in the future. Tara and the entire team at Beacham believe that homes are bought and sold based not only upon the traditional use of technology, but more importantly, it is about relationships built and kept, upholding the highest integrity, and providing the utmost dedication to professionalism and personal service. Being a long-time resident of Atlanta enables Tara to share her knowledge of neighborhoods, schools, shopping and restaurants. Tara is excited to bring her entrepreneurial spirit and passion for homes to your home buying process – whether it is helping first time homebuyers navigate the process successfully or providing help in the luxury market, Tara can help with it all.

Tara’s husband, Mark, is with JP Morgan and they have two daughters – Sarah and Meredith. Sarah is a teacher at The Lovett School and Meredith, is in Interior Design. During her free time, she enjoys running, reading, playing tennis, and spending time with friends and family.

Beacham Welcomes Mark Sargent as Sales Associate!

Born in Jacksonville, Florida, Mark Sargent moved to Atlanta when he was two months old.  After spending a few years in Cherokee and Cobb Counties, Mark’s family moved to the Chastain area of Buckhead, where Mark attended Tuxedo Elementary School, while his father served as the pastor of Sardis Methodist Church on Powers Ferry Road. Later in his childhood, his family moved to Augusta, where Mark finished high school and attended college.

During his college years at then-Augusta College, where Mark majored in English Literature, he worked in the radio business as an announcer and as the Student Pastor of a small church near Augusta.  Following graduation, Mark attended the Candler School of Theology of Emory University, finishing with a Master of Divinity degree, after which he spent the next three decades as a United Methodist pastor, a credential which he still holds.  During his ministry in Augusta, Rome, and Atlanta, Mark led his congregations to significant growth in mission. Mark also holds a Master of Arts degree in Psychology, earned during his career as a parish pastor.

In 2011, Mark entered the private sector, traveling the country and the world as a consultant and trainer before entering Real Estate with another Atlanta brokerage.  In January of 2019, he joined Beacham & Company, REALTORS®. He is grateful to have joined the esteemed group of REALTORS® assembled by Glennis Beacham.

Since following his father around the Bobby Jones and Chastain Park Golf Courses as a small child, Mark has been in love with the game of golf.  While his handicap is not scratch like it was for a long time, he hopes to get there again! In case you’re wondering, he has played the Augusta National and maintains a National Membership at The Palmetto Golf Club in Aiken, South Carolina, one of the country’s most historic golf clubs.

Golf is not the only thing Mark likes to do from scratch!  He has long loved to play with food and wine, and he loves nothing more than preparing good food for those he is honored to join him at the table.  He loves food of all kinds but has a deep affinity for spice, leading him often to the cuisines of Mexico, The American Southwest, Thailand, and India, among others. Because he loves to eat, he has to run, so Mark also enjoys jaunts along the banks of the ‘Hooch.

Mark is married to Amy Little, one of the most sought-after singers in the Atlanta area.  When she is not teaching voice, she is performing, and Mark loves it when he can proudly watch Amy perform with The Atlanta Opera or any of the other many venues where she shares her gift.

Mark is the parent of three grown children, and he is “Mugs” to his eight grandchildren.

He pledges to bring his insight and experience, his compassion and care, to every client with whom he is privileged to work.
