Vanessa Reilly is the C.R.E.O. (Chief Real Estate Officer) of Domo Realty. She’s had a love affair with 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.
After graduating from Virginia Tech with a marketing degree, she packed up her manual, 5-speed, Nissan Stanza and headed to the big city. Alas, she had no luck breaking into the world of advertising so she decided to try out her skills as a cocktail waitress. Needless to say, her father was not pleased that his daughter wasn’t putting her college education to use. After meeting all the wrong people, she got a break selling Porsches to $75k “millionaires.” She learned quickly that she was the smartest girl in the room and selling was easier than a game of chess. Luckily she was fired from the dealership and was freed to pursue her true passion – marketing (through the means of Real Estate).
17 years later, her out-of-the-box approach has gained national recognition, pissed off dozens of English teachers, and gone viral more than she can count!
When she’s not busy helping her clients, you can find her designing some sort of mid-century renovation project with her husband, flinging paint on canvas and calling it “abstract art” or spending time by a river in the North Georgia mountains with her 8-year old daughter. She also enjoys speeding past the old Porsche dealership, in her Tesla, on the way to the bank.
DOMO Realty was created in 2008 after Vanessa moved into a mid-century modern neighborhood called Northcrest. During her mid-century modern home buying journey she realized the need for a specific agency brand that embraced the cool factor of these homes. Thus was born, Domo Realty. Domo Realty isn’t a traditional brokerage. We embrace unique homes and focus on creating an experience for our clients that is tailored to their specific needs. We understand that a home is more than just an investment, it’s a reflection of our personality and a place where we create the things that matter most in life. People often ask, what does “Domo” mean? Domo, is derived from the latin word “Domus” which means “Home.”
At Domo Realty we consistently sell our listings faster and for more money than the competition because we know how to set the stage and create spaces that speak on an emotional level to buyers. We work alongside our sellers long before their homes are listed to make sure they are polished and beautiful which results in RECORD BREAKING sales prices. We’ve never met a house we couldn’t sell and we get super motivated by our clients goals. Our excitement for real estate is contagious, which means if you decide to partner with us, get ready to have fun!
