The Schiff Team
Real Estate Professionals
An Atlanta native, Leigh Schiff has established herself as one of the area’s top-producing agents, achieving close to $500 million in sales during her 20+ years in real estate.
Known for delivering a high level of service for all her clients, whether they are selling a Midtown condo, bungalow in Decatur or a multimillion-dollar estate, Leigh takes great pride in getting to know each of her clients on a personal level. Her relationship-based philosophy, deep understanding of the local market and passion for helping people achieve their goals have created a strong and loyal network of clients.
Leigh’s successful career began on the other side of the closing table, working with a real estate attorney, the experience she and her clients find invaluable. In addition, Leigh was one of the charter members of her previous brokerage, where she was also involved in establishing the company’s luxury homes division.
Leigh formed The Schiff Team in 2006 with her husband Michael to provide a more personalized real estate experience. The team’s commitment to exceeding expectations is evident in the successful long-term relationships they’ve established and in the fact that much of their growing business comes from the referrals of their happy clients.
Passionate about giving back to the Atlanta community, Leigh takes an active role in working with a variety of local charities, including Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, Habitat for Humanity and Giveback Homes.
A graduate of Towson University and resident of Sandy Springs, Leigh is an avid hunter/jumper equestrian and enjoys traveling, spending time with her family and supporting her two daughters in their NYO sports activities.
Michael Schiff ran his family's textile business and did a stint in minor league sports management before deciding he needed to find a career he was truly passionate about. When he discovered real estate, it was a natural fit, both regarding his personality and the foundational skills he had already built in sales, business and negotiation. Working only part time, he immediately stood out as an agent, earning the Southeast Region Rookie of the Year award from his brokerage at the time.
What sets Michael apart as an agent are also the things he enjoys most about this business - teamwork, communication and a high level of service. He enjoys helping people find great homes and make sound financial decisions about such an important investment, and his goal is to create a partnership with each client so that they become a part of the process and truly feel respected and valued. He prefers collaborative relationships, and when you work with him, he gives you his full attention, treating you as if you are his only client.
Real estate is truly a family-centered business for Michael. He and his wife, Leigh, met while working at their previous brokerage and formed The Schiff Real Estate Team in 2006 in order to provide their clients with a greater quality of service than they could furnish separately. Together, they have built a thriving business, establishing successful long-term relationships that result in delighted clients and extensive referrals. Michael focuses on the buyer side of the business and enjoys thinking outside the box to help each buyer find the home that meets their needs.
While he works mostly in Buckhead, Sandy Springs, Virginia-Highland and Morningside, extending into East Cobb, Dunwoody and the surrounding metro Atlanta neighborhoods, he is well versed in all aspects of Georgia real estate. As with his business, Michael naturally cares for his community as family and makes it a priority to be involved in organizations that give back. Currently, he serves on the Board of Directors for Most Valuable Kids of Greater Atlanta and supports the Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta, Children's Healthcare of Atlanta and Save A Child's Heart.
