Who is Domo?
Vanessa Reilly is the C.R.E.O. (Chief Real Estate Officer) of Domo Realty. She has had a love affair with decorating and playing “house” since she was 4 years old. Born in Texas and raised in Virginia, southern living is naturally a part of who she is. When she’s not busy helping her clients, you can find her designing some sort of Mid-Century Modern renovation project or flinging paint on canvas and calling it “Art.”
Vanessa graduated from Virginia Tech in a record breaking four years where she studied Marketing and Graphic Design. After moving to Atlanta she met all the wrong people and got into the business of selling exotic cars.
Her favorite color is chartreuse green, her favorite wine is red and she will eat just about anything dipped in chocolate. She has an affinity for cow-hide rugs, Japanese kimonos and turquoise painted doors. She has sold Millions and Millions of dollars in Real Estate while exceeding all client expectations. (Insert lots of Real Estate accolades you’ve never heard of here, lots of framed awards on office walls and boring elevator music).
All aboard! Our resident wake surfer, Michelle Raymer, is Domo’s superstar Marketing Administrator and Buyer’s Specialist. She was raised at the lake but is always traveling to the sea. She takes her inspiration from nature and loves bringing outdoor elements into her exterior design aesthetic. After nine years helping a boatload of home buyers secure mortgages Michelle gathered her industry experience and dove into her true passion – real estate. She is known for cultivating creativity and inspiring fresh design.
Captain Michelle studied international affairs and has navigated her ship from Germany to Hawaii, and everywhere in between. She found her sweet spot here in Georgia, where she and her family love to adventure and explore. When she’s not showing her mates the most awesome domains in Atlanta, Michelle is planning her next trip to the islands, or surfing with her family at the lake.
From sunny southern California, Anika Stephen is a die-hard Beatles fan and self-professed Anglophile. When she isn’t in the Domo office or searching for the cheapest flights to Ol’ Blighty, you can find her nerding out over sign language linguistics, one of her other passions in life. Anika has a marching band past, having hauled a baritone saxophone across many a field and down numerous city streets, for more miles than she’d care to count.
Speaking of miles, Anika has driven solo from LA to DC and back again twice, during her grad school years at Gallaudet University, so she knows I-40 like the back of her hand. And it was I-40 that brought her back out to Atlanta. Once she got settled in this fair city, Anika took to Google to find a bit of So Cal in the ATL by way of mid-century modern design. Her search led her to domoREALTY, and she knew she had to join the team! What’s Anika’s favorite mid-century modern moment? It would have to be the summer of 2008, when she sublet her boss’s apartment. The building was designed by architect Ray Kappe and built in 1954. Talk about mid-century modern heaven!
Sage Reilly in truth, is the BOSS of this whole Domo Realty enterprise. She reminds the team on a daily by inserting her favorite quote “I’m the boss applesauce!” while demanding a popsicle, lollipop or some sort of sugary reward that is given for using the big girl potty. Sage got a very early start in the real estate business and is by far one of the toughest negotiators in the game. When she’s not helping decorate the office walls with abstract crayon murals, or joining one of our investors in a design selection for their latest renovation project, you can find her hosting a princess tea-party while playing dress up or singing along to the ever popular “FROZEN” soundtrack. She loves testing authority, riding her scooter around the neighborhood and dancing to the Hokie-Pokie on the living room sofa. But be forewarned, missing 2:00 p.m. nap time is not an option for this Real Estate Mogul.
Chloe Reilly holds the position of C.O.D. (Chief Office Dog) she is a 13 year veteran who carefully oversees all office transactions (and shenanigans). She rules the office with an “iron-paw” and her stubborn negotiating tactics have won her several awards and numerous treats. She loves to hunt for the best deal and will challenge any competitor to a tug-of-war contest, especially if you mess with her red rubber ball. In her free time (which is all the time) she enjoys sleeping, eating, chasing squirrels and taking short walks at dusk. She hates getting her paws wet, and you can usually find her under the desk when it’s thundering and lightening outside. Mornings aren’t really her thing. In fact, she typically shows up for work just in time for her lunch break…Hey, it’s a tough job, but somebody’s gotta do it
Clay Miller is the master behind the photographic lens at Domo Realty. Growing up in Louisiana was not easy for a man with such soft features and beautiful skin. His work ethic is unparalleled and he has never taken a sick day in his life. He is known for his work in local and international publications, but you’ll never find him bragging because he’s not into all the fame and hoopla associated with being a celebrity photographer. For fun, Clay enjoys watching and playing Wii soccer, wearing mesh tank tops, and going dancing on the weekends. But step back ladies, this stallion is a married man. The picture below is just his alias as he has requested we not display an actual photo of him. Clay prefers to infiltrate the world quietly, through the exciting mediums of interpretive dance and Japanese hand fans.
