Johns Creek Real Estate
Historic elegance along the sparkling waters of the Chattahoochee.
Johns Creek is a scenic and charming enclave a stone’s throw from the rolling foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains and Atlanta’s city center.
Though younger than many other Atlanta suburbs, this burgeoning community exudes an innovative spirit and is deeply rooted in rich history. In 1981, a group of Georgia Tech grads bought 1,700 acres of rural land to transform into a high-tech office park, which soon attracted Fortune 500 firms, nationally recognized corporations, upscale businesses, and discerning homebuyers to the area. A grassroots movement to incorporate Johns Creek slowly began taking shape, and the city was officially established in 2006.
Johns Creek is known for its blend of innovation, culture, highly acclaimed schools, trendy shopping districts, recreational offerings, and a deep sense of community.
What to Love
- Family-friendly with a safe reputation and highly rated schools

Johns Creek attracts active families, outdoor enthusiasts, and young professionals alike with its diverse array of amenities and attractions, excellent school system, a wealth of Fortune 500 companies, and year-round community festivals.

Recognized by both the U.S. Golf Association and the Professional Golfers’ Association (PGA), the five prominent golf courses
in Johns Creek offer up some of the most diverse golf experiences in metro Atlanta. These well-known courses have hosted the U.S.Open Championship, PGA Championship, and the U.S. Amateur Championship over the years, and they remain popular among golfers of all skill levels.
