Buckheadbased Dorsey Alston Realtors plans to open its first intown office in Virginia- Highland later this year. The firm recently closed on the purchase of a 1919 building on North Highland Avenue that formerly housed Harvest Restaurant and La Raine’s Bridal Boutique. The company, which already has offices in Buckhead and East Cobb, is responding to the national trend of homeowners moving back to the urban core. dorseyalston.com
