About Jon Barnwell Team

Jon Barnwell Team was founded as a duo of agent-broker brothers.

Both established star realtors with professionally acclaimed experience throughout the state of Georgia, Jon Barnwell and sales team lead Jeff Barnwell are Top 100 Producers with RE/MAX.

With RE/MAX Town & Country ranked the company’s top brokerage in the southeast (ranked in 2023 the Outstanding Brokerage of the Year for the U.S.), the Jon Barnwell Team has positioned itself as the brokerage’s leading team of luxury specialists in the mountain living market.

The reason is client success and satisfaction. This team is focused directly towards servicing the needs of the client. “As a listing broker, I’m doing nothing but selling your home,” says Jon Barnwell.

The perfect place to find or build your dream home, Rabun County is surrounded by National Forest hiking trails, expansive and quaint lakes, and pristine fishing rivers like the Chattooga, Tallulah, and Soque.

“It’s truly a collection of people from different backgrounds who have come here to experience what mountain life really is,” said buyer’s agent Adele Henderson.

The friendly and welcoming communities in Rabun County are rooted in mountain traditions of arts, farming, pottery, music, summer camps, and an outstanding culinary tradition that took the title of Georgia’s “farm-to-table capital.”

In less than an hour, you can cruise up to Highlands, N.C., and experience a Conde Nast-acclaimed spa and world-class shopping. Or take an equally short drive to the Bavarian-styled village of Helen, where Oktoberfest seems to happen year-round. 

With a home in Rabun County, you can get away from the world, and in a moment’s notice, get right back into it. It’s strategically located between several airports, including those in Greenville and Asheville, and especially the Atlanta International Airport.

Leading the Rabun County luxury market, the office combines top-level customer service and world-class professionalism for buyers, sellers, and the communities it serves. As one buyer client noted, the experience was “simply a pleasure.”

To deliver in a market report that is constantly ahead of the curve, the group combines RE/MAX International connections as the #1 real estate company in the world with an authentic local background. 

Team lead Jon Barnwell has 19+ years of experience as a broker, particularly around Rabun County, Lake Burton and Lake Rabun. 

Jon is the ideal local guide — known as much for his warm energy as his knowledge and professionalism. He’s a 1992 grad of Rabun Gap Nacoochee School, nonprofit board member, a search-and-rescue volunteer, and an avid outdoorsman.

Rabun County is second-nature for Jon — he takes highways, trails, and backroads effortlessly and gets you there whether it’s in a truck, an ATV, a chartered plane, or all three. Jon also managed a farm himself for a few years in Pennsylvania.

As one testimonial notes, “In the same breath as speaking about a Lake Burton listing, Jon will recommend a new hot spot in Buckhead to try for dinner. He seems to know the status of every property, who owns the place, and which surrounding roads are named for whose grandfather.”

His brother, Jeff Barnwell, joined the firm in 2022, after 30+ years of broker experience focused on the luxury markets of north Atlanta. Every one of the team’s agents is influenced by their professional experiences in the southern hospitality of the Georgia countryside and its luxury enclaves.

If you’re looking for a team that knows the market and will be committed to your interests, it’s the Jon Barnwell Team at RE/MAX Town & Country.
