Johnathan's love for real estate was born out of his experiences in historic Augusta, Georgia. There, he launched a development company to transform a vacant 1860s warehouse into a new mixed-use building and defined his future career path from that moment on.

It's no surprise that Johnathan's clients return to him again and again for their ongoing real estate needs.
