What do Clients Say?
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!Kathleen Whaley
