Real Estate

Mark Mahaffey and Associates Real Estate’s client reviews speak for themselves. Whether selling or buying, Mark's clients have submitted verified reviews that rate him multiple times over with 5 out of 5 stars. He has been involved with real estate transactions that range from $20,000 lots to multi-million dollar lake homes, which means Mark and his associates have the broad experience to feel comfortable guiding the majority of home buyers and sellers.

Mark, his wife, and associates do not simply "talk the talk." His real estate business is not a "hobby" or part-time occupation for them. They are actively involved with real estate on a FULL TIME daily basis and bring their experience to their clients whether they are a first-time or experienced homebuyer or investor.

Property Management

Mark Mahaffey and Associates Real Estate is also a thriving property management business. His hard-working property managers ensure their owners' properties receive the best care by providing his owners with excellent tenants so the only thing they ever do is see the monthly income deposited in their account.


Early in his career, Mark worked for a major corporation on the west coast as a as a I.T. liaison between the finance & accounting departments and technical support. He has always had a talent for entertainment, and started his own company providing services for special events, and he and his wife along with his staff of entertainers, provided happy memories for an almost countless number of customers for over 20 years. The combination of these two experiences (corporate & entertainment business owner) make him uniquely qualified on both a technical and personal level as he brings knowledge and reliability to the realty home buying and property management table. Mark's clients say that he is enjoyable to work with when looking to purchase or sell real estate.

In addition to ongoing current real estate continuing education, Mark graduated from The University of Georgia Terry College of Business with his MBA in 2006 where he focused in real estate and finance. Although there was some time in between the two degrees, he also has his BBA from Terry which makes him a "Double Dawg!"  Throughout his career, Mark has been a big proponent of saving for the future and understands the great value and stability that investing can bring to everyone whether an individual or a family, and one of the biggest single investments in most people's lives is their home.


When he and his wife are not working (which is not often!), they enjoy traveling to a variety of destinations that encompass some type of activity…skiing, hiking, etc. And, one of their favorite activities is eating! That’s probably why they have to stay active! When not traveling, Mark enjoys fitting in the occasional round of golf or improving his tennis game when he can attend a community tennis program.

Beth:  A Georgia Native and a University of Georgia graduate I have a heart for Athens. After graduating from UGA I built my first house in Athens and stayed in the Classic City for years as a pharmaceutical rep. Upon meeting my husband, whose hobby was real estate, we have since bought and sold numerous times. Upon all the moving I began to enjoy all the details that went on behind the scenes with a purchase and sale.  Fast forward a decade and I am still enjoying the details and assisting agents and buyer/sellers to get to the closing table. My area expands from Athens, Georgia to Auburn, Alabama and each agent and team I work with is a pleasure to serve.

When I am not coordinating contracts, I am busy with two kids that have all their various sports and activities. We enjoy great food and travel and time together. Although we reside in Auburn, Alabama and we are a house divided, on Saturdays you can hear me yell, Go Dawgs!
