Born in Baltimore, MD, DeSales’s family moved around to Pennsylvania then Texas, before finally settling in 1974 and making Peachtree City their home town. This is truly where DeSales’s passion for all things real estate related bloomed as she began working and gaining valuable experience within the family’s building business, Ravin Homes. Throughout her years at High School, DeSales worked closely with the family learning the ins and outs of building quality homes from the ground up.
DeSales embarked on her journey through college, starting out in Colorado, before finishing up at UGA, earning her Bachelor’s Degree in Business. Taking this degree, DeSales was able to apply it and become a key player in continuing the successes of Ravin Homes for the following 26 years. Needless to say, within this timespan DeSales’s skill set continued to grow astronomically as her eye for custom construction, renovation and design became vastly apparent. With her Contractor’s License in her back pocket, DeSales discovered her knack for understanding a client’s vision and her ability to transform a house into their dream home, becoming one Ravin Homes’ top Inside Sales Representative.
With her eye for design, mind of a contractor and heart for family, DeSales had found her niche in the Real Estate world and took the 90’s by storm. In the late 90’s DeSales bumped into Roch, a friend from her school days, and the rest (As they say!) is history. Tying the knot in ‘98, they spent a few years living and loving the Atlanta scene in the up and coming Buckhead neighborhood. It wasn’t long before DeSales and Roch made the easy decision to move to the suburbs - and what better place to start their family than Peachtree City!
Blessed with the birth of their daughter, Blaise, DeSales spent the early 2000’s working for Ravin homes whilst juggling the new-found joys of motherhood. Roch hung up his corporate slacks to join the family business and together, they continued to build and provide hundreds of homes for families moving to the area. For DeSales it was the lifelong relationships that were forged throughout these years, that she cherishes the most, and continues to be a valuable resource whenever called upon. Having passed her GA Real Estate exam two decades prior, DeSales re-activated her license in 2010 enabling her the option to assist with a resale. In 2016, the resales market was booming with many past clients reaching back out after 20+ years. Realizing the needs of her clients had shifted, DeSales began focusing on this element full-time and became Associate Broker by 2018.
Broker and co-founder of deGolian Realty, DeSales continues to provide valuable support and guidance to not only her much loved clients, but now her newly found DeGolian family of agents and colleagues. Having DeSales as a resource both in and out of the office is like having your very own “Google”, or better yet - “Ask DeSales”! This is truly DeSales’s superpower - knowledge beyond the sale, as her decades in the business have helped her build trusted relationships with vendors, subcontractors, designers and more.
“My biggest joy is helping clients in any way I can. I truly love to go above and beyond to make my clients happy and am truly blessed to have the best clients ever!”
When she isn’t running around with clients picking out tile, or rummaging for her color palettes, you will often find DeSales walking the golf course with her fur baby, Fergie. A lover of music, DeSales rarely misses the opportunity to glam it up with her girlfriends at music midtown or join Roch for an evening of Jam Bands and Blues. A true lover of life, DeSales relishes her time with family, from visiting their daughter, Blaise, at GSU to enjoying movie marathons on a rainy Sunday afternoon.
One conversation with DeSales and you’ll know where her heart is.
