Everyone has a story, so I thought I would share ours! My name is Chassidy Hodgins, and I write the blogs for the Adkins Team. We are a mother and daughter team and enjoy helping people with their real estate needs. Phyllis Adkins is my mom, and let me tell you, she is one hard worker. She got married very early, in high school as a matter of fact, to my dad, Ted Adkins. Phyllis wanted children more than anything in this world, and she wanted to provide us with the things in life she never had the opportunity to afford growing up. My mother was a waitress, a bus driver, and later started cleaning houses as it provided her with more flexibility and income to support her three young children. Before we entered college, my mom also started breeding Shih Tzu’s. My siblings and I are roughly a year apart, so she knew to get us through college she would need extra income. I watched my mom work and work to provide for us. After we were out of college, she was getting older, and realized that she needed to do something different. A customer that she cleaned houses for was a real estate agent, and she helped my mother get started. My mom got into real estate in 2005, when the market was horrible. Everyone told her she would never make it…however, they obviously underestimated my mom. Every business endeavor she has gone after has been successful because of one thing….she puts in more effort than most people. She genuinely enjoys helping others.
I (Chassidy Hodgins), joined my mother roughly over a year ago! I graduated from the University of Georgia in 2003, with a Bachelors in Science. I coached young swimmers and worked in the Aquatics industry for a couple of years before having children of my own in 2009. I then became a stay at home mother, just as my mom was getting really busy. After my first child got older, my mother wanted me to join her in real estate, but I was still focused on my family, and had my second child in 2012. However, as all of us know, life can have ups and downs. In 2016, I got divorced, and it was time for me to go back to work. So I joined my mom in real estate, in hopes of having more flexibility for my children.
So far, I am really enjoying it, and my mother and I are a great team. We are full time real estate agents, that strive to be there when our clients need us. Please let us know if we can be of any assistance to you! Reach out to us anytime! We work several different counties around Atlanta.
