Combining technical prowess with a servant’s heart, Paula Henao is an architect as well as a REALTORS®. Naturally nurturing, empathetic and insightful, her brand of care organically blends architectural knowledge and real estate expertise with personal attention and international sensitivity. Gifted at helping clients unfold their vision for the future into a three-dimensional reality, she enjoys taking them by the hand, letting go only when they are safely on the other side of what is often a complex, emotional process.
Born and raised in Bogota, Colombia, Paula pursued her education in architecture and came to the United States after being offered a position with a builder in Georgia. After working on residential communities in Augusta and Aiken, she chose to settle in Atlanta, a city she loves for its growth, opportunities for families and diverse community. Real estate, for her, is not just a business—it is a passion rooted in childhood experiences of witnessing its impact on wealth-building. A resident of Johns Creek, she has been in the business for over 12 years and has loved growing together with her clients as they move forward with their families and careers. Proud to offer the highest level of service through her partnership with Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International Realty, she works with clients throughout the North Atlanta area.
An experienced agent, architect and builder, Paula is fluent in the language of homes, the nuances of contracts and the subtleties of human interaction. Fully bilingual in English and Spanish, her unrivaled ability to be fully present and communicate the right information to the right person at the right time makes her a sought-after negotiator and confidante. From staging to listing to negotiating and everything in between, she excels at tailoring the experience to fit the needs of each person, listening closely to understand expectations and creating a collaborative environment where everyone’s goals are met.
Active in her community, Paula has accepted various roles with the Georgia Hispanic Construction Association as their first executive director and former member of their board of directors. She is a member of the Rotary Club of Johns Creek North Fulton and Global Atlanta. She is also an engaged PTA member at State Bridge Crossing Elementary, where her daughter attends. Paula’s world is wrapped up in her two children (Sofia and Lucas), her husband, Luis, and her dog, Giorgio. As a family, they enjoy playing golf at The Country Club of the South and exploring everything Atlanta offers, from parks and festivals to the diverse food scene.
