Amelia B. Teston
Welcome! We are so glad you have an interest in our community. I started my career in Real Estate in 1998. I come from a family of REALTORS® and though I held other positions after I graduated from Georgia Southern University in 1994, it was Real Estate that has become my passion. I grew up in Blackshear and have lived in this area the majority of my life. I enjoy the convenience of our community and all it has to offer. We have wonderful, caring people who take pride in where we live.
I have obtained several Real Estate Designations including; ABR (Accredited Buyers Representative) and GRI (Graduate REALTOR® Institute) and attend yearly education courses to stay abreast of new rules and regulations as well as new trends in technology. I obtained my Brokers license in 2004 and purchased the company that same year from my mother, Alta Bruce.
In 2011, I completed the requirements for Property and Casualty Insurance Course and opened a new department within the company and now offer Insurances Services with Nationwide Insurance. We are excited to offer clients the opportunity to purchase insurance through our office and are working hard to make it very convenient for our customers.
I have many interest and hobbies including running in various 5K races. In 2011, I completed the Gate River Run and participated in the Donna Deagan-Race for a Cure in Jacksonville, FL. I also enjoy Gardening, Antiquing and Going to the Beach.

Hi! I'm Jessica Shields. I am the Sales Assistant here at Gateway Realty Services, Inc. I am currently a sophomore at South Georgia State College and have plans to transfer to the Universtiy of Georgia in the Fall of 2020 to pursue a degree in Child Development. My parents are my best friends so going to college without them will be an adjustment. I attend Remnant Church where my cup for Christ is constantly overflowing. I enjoy spending time with friends, working, but most of all, just being a homebody!
Hello! My name is Adriana Noya, and I am the Administrative Assistant here at Gateway Realty. I am 18 years old and a senior at Ware County High School (Woohoo Class of 2020!). I was born and raised here in Waycross, GA. I speak both English and Spanish, which is very helpful for any Spanish -speaking customer who may need any sort of translation. Currently, I am an active member in the Ware County Beta Club and the Ware County NHS Club, where we participate in helping our community in various ways.
When I am not in school or at work, I enjoy listening to music, watching tv, and traveling to different places. I also am a Jehovah’s Witness, and I actively participate in the voluntary worldwide campaign of teaching all who are interested about the bible. I attend the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses in Douglas, GA every Wednesday and Sunday.
Once I graduate from high school, I will major in healthcare and become (hopefully) an RN!
