Her current portfolio includes more than $250 million dollars in the project pipeline and to date she has closed more luxury condo sales than any other Realtor in Atlanta. She is consistently recruited by the nation’s top developers to exclusively sell their entire buildings. When she is not walking through construction sites, she is providing direction and feedback to architects and designers on future floor plans and modern design finishes.
When not working, Rodriguez enjoys international travel and spending time with her family and their two big yellow Labs, Brody and Saban.
