I contacted Jon to view several cabins in the Clayton area. His knowledge of the area was very helpful. He knew of several that I was not aware of. He listened and took me to view homes that fit my budget and needs. I highly recommend him as an agent!

Listed and sold a home
Jon was a pleasure to work with. He was dependable and efficient. After listing my house with another realtor and it not ever showing, I listed my house with Jon. His first step was an open house which led to the house being shown several times.... And it sold!

Jon was great to work with. He is knowledgeable about the area and every phase of the process including recommending contractors to help me with the renovations I needed to make. I highly recommend him. He even followed up after the sale to see if he could assist.

Jon put together a very complicated closing. We needed a VA loan and we truly believe it would never have happened without the expertise of Jon Barnwell. He was quick to respond to EVERY phone call as issues kept piling up from the bank. Jon solved them all in a much better than timely fashion, all in a professional manner. We felt so blessed that Jon was our agent! He is extremely knowledgable and professional and a true pleasure to do business with. When choosing an agent, choose Jon! Moving from south FL to Tiger, GA was so worth it. Love it here. Thanks, Jon. Less ... More

Jon worked with me for almost 2 years while I was attempting to close a real estate transaction that was continually bogged down with legal issues. We ultimately got the transaction closed earlier this year, and we could not by happier with the house we purchased or the service that we got from Jon. He went well beyond what is typically expected out of a realtor to help me close my transaction. I would highly recommend him if you are considering a purchase in the area.

I chose Jon Barnwell to show us property in Rabun County on Zillow. I felt like his expertise of the area would be beneficial in our property search. I came with a list of properties we wanted to view. He knew firsthand information on each property on our list. We found the property that suited our budget and wants of the area in a quick manor. He communicated with me any time I needed information provided. I always felt he was a phone call away. If for any reason we decided to sell this property, which we do not intend to do, we would use him as our agent. Less ... More

Jon was a pleasure to work with. He was very knowledgeable of the area and very responsive to questions. He went above and beyond showing us homes, and actually took us around to restaurants and activities in the area to help us explore our new surroundings. I would not hesitate to use Jon again and I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone looking for a home in the area.

Jon did a great job for us finding the proper house for us in NE Georgia. He is extremely knowledgeable about the demographics of the area and the available properties. Jon was able to find the right house for us within a pretty specific set of parameters, including price, size of lot, and location. He helped us step over the hurdles and stumbling blocks associated with purchasing a house. He knows all the closing attorneys and bank loan agents, and he networks with other realtors to find the right property. Less ... More

Jon is very thorough. He showed us many homes in Clayton, and surrounding areas. He is very responsive, and a pleasure to work with. Jon was very helpful during negotiations and the closing process. After the purchase of our home, he was able to recommend people in the area that we have needed for general maintenance. We were very pleased with the level of service that Jon provided, and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.

I have bought and sold over 20 homes across the country while moving around in my corporate life. Subsequently I've have delt with many many R.E. agents. I was fortunate to have met Jon who is simply the best. He listens!! I knew what I wanted and Jon delivered. Can't stress enough how helpful he was in all aspects of the buying process, both before and after the sale. I got what I wanted and Jon made it happen. I am sure you want a quality and successful realestate experience--Call Jon. Less ... More

We called Jon about one of his listings which turned out to be under contract. He suggested a similiar property nearby that we ended up buying. We had no agent in mind, but after meeting Jon we felt comfortable about using him as our buyers' agent. He has been excellent to work with and has made our transaction go very smoothly. His knowledge of the area (Rabun County) is impressive and his local contacts we used for inspections, repairs, insurance, etc. were top notch. Jon exceeded our expectations at every step of the process and was always available with advice or to answer questions. He is a true real estate professional and we really feel this made a difference in buying our vacation home. Less ... More

Jon Barnwell was my realtor for the purchase of a 5 acre view lot in Tallulah Falls. His vast knowledge of Rabun County is very impressive. His assistance with the necessary details of purchasing an undeveloped lot (septic permit, soil studies, etc) was invaluable. I would recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a home or land.

Recently, Jon Barnwell helped my wife and I to find and purchase a foreclosed property. Although negotiating with the bank was somewhat tedious, Jon helped to make the process go smoothly with few complications. We would definitely work with Jon again if we were to purchase additional property.

Jon was aware of our desires and understood our needs in order to find the property of interest to us. He communicated information well and worked hard to ensure all our questions were answered. He took personal interest like a friend, went the extra mile for us, yet he was profeessional in all his dealings. While this was an unusual transaction, Jon was always available to keep us informed of the process. Since we were not from the area, he took time to explain specifics to us and put us in touch with those that could help. We would recommend Jon as a top-notch realator. Less ... More

Jon did a wonderful job of helping us negotiate the multiple steps involved with purchasing a foreclosure. He was very knowledgeable about the foreclosure market and made negotiating with a bank much easier.

Jon Barnwell served not only as our buyer's agent for the purchase of our Lake Burton cabin, he was my first Rabun County friend. Using Jon as a realtor was simply a pleasure. He not only knows his facts and figures but is easy to talk with, good natured and semi-humorous. Kidding folks. He actually has a great sense of humor, which keeps one happily entertained as you bump around Rabun County looking at properties. Jon is a true salt-of-the-earth kind of guy. He rattles off info on local swimming holes and casting suggestions as easily as real estate figures. This guy and his world-of-Rabun-County knowledge are true gems. He could write a book on the ins and outs of Rabun County - including all there is to know about the local real estate market. A fact I also appreciated, is that Jon is not simply a county-bumpkin (not that there's anything wrong with that) local realtor. This guy is a worldly guy. The man has been around. In the same breath as speaking about an exciting Lake Burton listing, he'll recommend a new hot-spot in Buckhead to try. It's like he's here, there and everywhere at once. If it weren't so darn impressive, it'd be a little freaky. Jon seems to know the exact status of every Lake Burton and Lake Rabun property. Who owns the place, how old the septic system, and which surrounding roads are named for who's grandfather. His knowledge and stories are both charming and interesting. They help you get a vision and feeling for what Rabun County is all about. Jon's introduction to the North Georgia lakes and mountain region is a wonderful welcome. Making the purchase of a home there even more exciting. After the swift and painless closing of our Lake Burton cabin in 2009, Jon was beyond helpful in suggesting what builder was right for the job of additions and improvements. I would trust Jon heading up a multi-million dollar sale, with the same amount of confidence that he'd come to the rescue if one's car was broken down on some old Forrest Service road. Jon is professional, personable and a trustworthy businessman all rolled into one. To know him, is to be impressed by him. It's just that simple. Two enthusiastic thumbs up! Less ... More

I have used Jon to purchase a home and a separate 5 acre tract. He is an absolute joy to work with and I would recommend him to anyone searching for property.
