Kevin Pelkey

Kevin Pelkey, for twenty years, worked in the fast-paced world of hospitality and tourism management while still maintaining an active role in his community through volunteer activities.  This passion that grew from hospitality and his enjoyment for helping others seemed to be a natural segway into another passion he held, real estate.  Realizing that, in real estate, he could continue to help others by helping them realize their dream of homeownership or to achieve financial freedom.  After a lot of research, Kevin found a group that carried the same core values of hard work, integrity, and outstanding client service that he had, The Providence Group brokered by eXp Realty, who he has been aligned with for over six years.

When Kevin isn’t making homeownership dreams come true for his clients (most of whom become friends), he continues to enjoy investing in his personal real estate portfolio and traveling with friends.  Some of his favorite recent travel destinations have been London, Cuba, and Puerto Rico.  However, wherever Kevin’s travels seem to lead him, he always finds time to learn about the area culture and take time for his outdoor adventures such as ziplining, snorkeling and rafting.

So, if you are looking for a REALTOR® with experience, integrity and someone who puts clients and service first, look no further for your homebuying, selling and investing needs than Kevin.  You can reach him at 706.761.2578 or send an email to to start your home journey.

Agnes Lartey

Agnes Lartey was born in the United Kingdom to Nigerian immigrant parents. With her love for both science and design, she wanted to pursue a career in Architecture.  After discovering that there were numerous jobless Architects in the early 1990’s, thanks to a global recession, Agnes decided to go in a different direction.  She studied Biology and Biochemistry at the University of Greenwich, London instead and began a career in the pharmaceutical industry.  There she worked in a number of specialty therapy areas including Cardiovascular Medicine, Gastroenterology and Oncology.

Agnes transferred her pharmaceutical career to the U.S. in 2002 and has lived in Georgia with her husband and two children for over 20 years.

Agnes left Big Pharma and Corporate America in 2005 to focus on raising her children. She was a Stay-at-Home Mother for 11 years, briefly homeschooling and then volunteering in her local community.  She served on the Local School Councils and PTAs of her children’s schools, in both Henry County and the North Atlanta Cluster of Atlanta Public Schools.

After a brief return to Corporate America, Agnes decided to revisit her passion for Home Design and combine it with her love for helping others.  She obtained her Real Estate License and joined The Providence Group, drawn by their exceptional mentorship and track record of premier Real Estate services in Atlanta.

Considering her background, it comes as no surprise that Agnes is a health and wellness enthusiast.  She enjoys keeping fit with regular workouts at the gym, taking Yoga classes and taking long brisk walks in nature. She also enjoys singing Soprano in her church choir.

Agnes is here to help with national and international relocations, as well as the needs of our local customers and clients.
