Stephanie Leathers is a real estate broker who lives and works in Athens, Georgia, USA, and Providenciales, Turks and Caicos, BWI. She graduated from the University of Georgia and received a law degree from the Cumberland School of Law, Birmingham, Alabama. Stephanie completed the International Environmental Law program, at the University of Victoria, British Columbia, before accepting an appointment in Juneau, Alaska, with The Office of the Public Defender.
Upon her return to Athens, Stephanie practiced law and shifted to development and sales. Soon, as the number-one residential sales agent in Georgia, her one year sales volume exceeded 30 million dollars. Afterwards, Stephanie formed Chastain, Jenkins & Leathers, a real estate firm whose sales volumes have finished top in their group five years in a row. In 2004, Stephanie played a major role in developing the GAMEDAY Center, a mixed-use luxury sports hotel-condominium property, in partnership with the University of Georgia Athletic Association. Stephanie single handedly sold the complete inventory of 133 residential condominiums and four commercial spaces prior to completion of the building, 98 units before groundbreaking, a record for the Sate of Georgia.
A pre-sales expert, Stephanie continues to break the GAMEDAY concept in other markets including: Auburn, Alabama, at Auburn University; Tuscaloosa, Alabama, at The University of Alabama; Tallahassee, Florida, at Florida State and West Lafayette, Indiana, at Perdue University. Stephanie’s next career milestone came in the development and expansion of her family’s historic manufacturing facility, The Leathers Building. An exemplarily mixed-use adaption of a historic property, the iconic building features 27,000 square feet including 27 commercial condominium spaces, each sold before completion. Business owners love the retail and restaurant conveniences, which attract local visitors and tourist alike. Today Stephanie is widely recognized as a residential and commercial condominium pre-sales and development authority. Among her growing accolades in real estate sales and development, Stephanie has sold the most expensive piece of property, per acre, to date, in Downtown Athens. Beckoning to interest in environmental law, Stephanie’s outdoor spirit is, as friends know, a part of her.
