Meet The Team


The Butler/Swayne Team has grown to be one of the top real estate teams in North Atlanta through a combination of hard work and a sincere dedication to providing the highest level of service to their clients. This service comes with extensive knowledge of the markets they serve and a willingness to go the extra mile to help clients reach a successful outcome in a very challenging market. The Butler/Swayne Team has established itself as a leader for marketing homes and providing first class service to buyers and sellers. Their growth and recognition as the top team since 2014 at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Georgia Properties speaks to their success.

Stephanie Butler

Stephanie is a founding partner of The Butler/Swayne Team, along with her sister, Lisa Swayne. With a background in hospitality, Stephanie is the guru of customer service. She encourages everyone on the team to take their commitment to client service to the next level with every interaction. She believes it really is a privilege to be invited into the intimate (and sometimes stressful) process of buying and selling a home.

Stephanie’s background prior to launching her real estate career provides a wealth of experience that has allowed her to blend her sales skills into a million dollar business. After working for The Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Atlanta, then AT&T during the 1996 Olympics, she created specialized corporate events for clients such as The Coca-Cola Company, MetLife, Georgia-Pacific, Southern Company, and Pfizer at Production Group International.

Stephanie resides in Milton with her husband and three children, where she is extensively involved in the Milton community and her children’s school. She is a graduate of Georgia State University's College of Business Administration.

Lisa Swayne

Lisa is a founding partner of The Butler/Swayne Team along with her sister, Stephanie Butler. A force of energy, Lisa is smart, savvy and a tough negotiator. She does not hesitate to leverage the wealth of knowledge she has gleaned through years of business experience. With an eye for design, as well as knowing what sells in the market, she helps clients present their property in the most appealing way.

Prior to beginning her real estate career in 2003, Lisa was a successful product manager for the Atlanta-based company, ADAM. ADAM is a leading provider of internet-based health products, where she managed some of ADAM’s most successful products.

Gianna Whisler-Amneteg

With a flair for the creative, Gianna leverages an innovative approach to both sales/marketing and design, providing what she likes to call a “distinctive approach to home” for each of her clients. Her keen eye lets her uncover opportunities that others often miss.

Gianna’s more than 11 years of success as a real estate agent have been garnered through an ability to maintain a comprehensive knowledge of the housing market and emerging trends during the highs, the lows and everything in between. Additionally, her experience working in the wholesale lending industry contributes to her nimble approach.

Like many others, Gianna is a transplant to the Milton area and considers herself a southern belle in training. When not sourcing just the right home for her clients, you can find her preparing gourmet meals and pairing the perfect wine with her epicurean delights. She lives with her husband, son, their two dogs and enjoys donating time at the local Hospice organization and her son’s school.

After 8 years in National Account Healthcare Sales for JohnsonDiversey, a SC Johnson and Son Company, Gay became an invaluable consultant to her competitive healthcare client's business through product development and program implementation on a national level.

Coupled with her own personal relocation experience through her husband's career, Gay found real estate to be the perfect blend of her sales experience and passion for the industry.
