My career in real estate began simply, with a love for Athens, an attraction to various architectural styles and an interest in preservation as well as historic homes. I’ve now been an Athenian for over two decades, which is hard to believe. I have spent nearly fifteen years as a full time, licensed Realtor in the residential and commercial real estate markets of Athens and its surrounding counties. Being actively involved in an ever changing real estate market for such a long time enables me to share invaluable insight with my clients. Make no mistake, experience and local knowledge matters! My goal for my client relationships is to apply this invaluable local knowledge with honesty, integrity and professionalism and in doing so find my clients the perfect property to serve their needs. Whether you need assistance marketing your property for sale, finding the home of your dreams, placing your business or investing in real estate, let me apply my passion and experience to help you meet your goals!

Commercial Real Estate became a focus in 2003 when my partners and I purchased over 60,000 sq’ of an old cotton mill for an adaptive reuse project we are very proud of, converting the existing space, and reusing much of the existing structure to serve commercial office needs at the Chase Park Warehouses. Investment properties are a focus as well and my ability to recognize the right opportunity in the right neighborhood has ensured that my investment clients have had success and continue to work with me to build their portfolios.

As a homeowner in the Boulevard Historic District, I’ve served on the Boulevard Neighborhood Association Steering Committee, actively participating in the preservation of one of Athens most attractive in town neighborhoods. Whether you need assistance marketing your property for sale, finding the home of your dreams, placing your business or investing in real estate, let me apply my passion and experience to help you meet your goals.

What Briggs' Clients Say

“We rented from Full Circle for several years, which was a positive experience. When we decided to purchase a home, Full Circle, was an obvious choice for us for our realtor. Briggs Carney was great to work with and really worked hard to help us find a home we love. We purchased an older home that required a bit of negotiation and Briggs worked very hard to move the  process move along quite successfully and ensure we got a situation we wanted.  We were very happy with the services that Full Circle and Briggs provided us and I would recommend to anyone looking to purchase a home in Athens.”

- Phillip and Adrienne Bumpers

Briggs Carney came highly recommended by clients who were pleased with his services. His understanding of our needs both location and price point were exceptional. He found us the two properties we purchased that met our expectations. We appreciated his constant availability to address any questions or issues regarding the sale.

     It is very rare to encounter such a dedicated, knowledgeable professional who also has a personal touch.

The outcome was fantastic . We recommend Briggs Carney without reservation to others who are looking to purchase property in Athens.”

- Mimi & Joe Clancy

  I was fortunate to have worked with Briggs on 2 purchases in the Athens market.  He  has lived in Athens for over 25 years and his local knowledge was instrumental in helping to identify investment opportunity ($900,000 duplexes ) as well as a residential home ($190,000) purchases.  He is extremely knowledgeable and has a keen eye for evaluating properties. I have recommended Briggs to many people who have all appreciated his personal style and professionalism.


- David Feroleto

As a first time home buyer (with a small budget) working through some toilsome restraints in financing and timing, Briggs made himself flexibly available for advice and assistance in all facets of my buying experience. Briggs’ nuanced understanding of in-town neighborhoods on a block-to-block level was impressive, even for a long time resident of Athens, and, in retrospect, has proven to be invaluable – I couldn’t be happier with my purchase. For that, I would happily recommend Briggs’ help to anyone in the Athens market!

- Oscar Clark

As a first time home buyer I couldn’t be happier with Briggs’ work on my behalf. His knowledge of the local area and understanding of my needs and wishes helped us find the right house quickly. He explained the process and all the paperwork clearly and thoroughly. His experience and steady professionalism brought us successfully through some very difficult negotiations, and he has even given me helpful advice after the sale during my inevitable new homeowner crises. I can say without reservation that, as long as we’re both in Athens, I will trust Briggs with all my future real estate business.


- Steve Harris

“I have been working with Briggs for the past 3 years. After consulting with a several Realtors in Athens I decided to use Briggs as my agent in purchasing 3 residential properties. Over the years I have benefited from his in-depth knowledge of the local neighborhoods, schools and the local hotspots.  He was also able to offer important recommendations on financing, legal contacts and contractors, advising me throughout the process. I felt confident having Briggs as my agent knowing that he was always looking after my best interest.

If you are looking to purchase or sell a home in Athens, I would recommend without hesitation using Briggs as your agent, he is trustworthy, knowledgeable, prompt and always accessible.”

- Hashim Ali

“Briggs Carney is the best. We’re first time home owners and from out of state, so we were a little nervous about buying a home in Athens. But Briggs went out of his way to guide us through the process. No question or detail went unattended. We totally trust him and highly recommend him.”

- Jay & Maria Strom

“I couldn’t have been more pleased with my recent experience with Briggs Carney at Full Circle Realty. Selling the historic Millhouse that I owned and lived in for 20 plus years meant more to me than just a dollar figure. I wanted my home to go to someone that appreciated the sense of community in the neighborhood, the desirability of the Chase St. School district and the responsible growth of locally owned businesses in and around the historic Boulevard neighborhood. Briggs Carney understood the desirability of homes in the Historic Boulevard neighborhood and was very knowledgeable of the unique and special attributes of these houses and the Boulevard community. Briggs listened to all my concerns, informed me on the current market and worked with me on arriving at a fair price that met my needs while still being very marketable. Briggs worked with me at my pace clearly and patiently explaining everything involved and listening to my concerns as we moved along. I never felt rushed or pressured in any way. Once on the market the house sold in a very timely manner meeting or beating our desired timeframe. In all, the entire process surpassed all my expectations and couldn’t have been easier or more satisfying. Thank you Briggs!”
