When you meet Bev, you'll agree that she is a business woman to the core. Her goal was to create a group that deals exclusively in Lake Lanier property but with a businesslike, market-oriented approach. With the motto "…when you're ready for the good life!" the logical name for her team was The Good Life Group. It is part of the group's mission statement for each team member to be professional in every way, accessible (yes, they do answer their phones), up-to-date on any issues regarding Lake Lanier, and an exceptional resource to buyers and sellers of lake property.
A rare native Atlantan, Bev grew up visiting Lake Lanier. She graduated from the University of Georgia with a business degree in Information Systems and minors in both marketing and management. She spent many years in the software industry performing a variety of tasks; and, in time, went into consulting. She helped software and communications companies set up training, documentation, product marketing, usability studies, testing, product design and much more. Eventually, she opened her own firm, BGK Design Services, where she assisted small businesses with web design and marketing. Once her children went off to college, she and her husband moved up to their dream home on Lake Lanier (in the hopes of giving the kids a reason to come home more often…which worked!) She fell in love with the area and started investing in lake property. She discovered a deep love for real estate, and decided to get her license. Now, she is a specialist in lake property, loves it, and she uses her marketing and Internet background as a tool to get the word out about her properties. She does not consider herself a salesperson at all. Instead, she is a problem-solver, and her clients appreciate the distinction between those two approaches.
Bev is married to Tim Knight who owns Knight Commercial Real Estate, a commercial real estate company that specializes in retail developments. The Knights have two wonderful sons, Matt and Chris. Matt is a consultant specializing in building technology, and Chris is a builder/renovator in some of the hottest areas of Atlanta. The whole family loves spending time on the lake.
In her spare time, Bev Knight likes to dance, especially line dancing and salsa. She is also active in her church where she sometimes teaches Sunday School. An avid reader, she loves people, enjoys real estate, and works very hard to make sure that her clients' needs are served.
