Brad Abernathy

Brad Abernathy is a full time Realtor, Vice President & Partner with The Norton Agency, and Partner of the Abernathy Cochran Real Estate Group.  He grew up with real estate as his family’s business.  So, after completing his degree at Georgia Tech, Abernathy went to work in the business he knew all of his life.

In 2009, he and Regina Cochran formed the Abernathy Cochran Group to serve their clients together.  Together, their group has been the leader in home sales in northeast Georgia’s Hall County, closing more than $230 million in residential real estate deals since 2010. The group sets themselves apart from their peers by marketing their expertise and their client’s properties across a wide span of platforms.

“We don’t paint ourselves into a corner with a niche specialty—our specialty is real estate,” Abernathy says. “We have dozens of different spokes that include many streams of business as well as many different marketing avenues which is a great benefit to our clients. I’ve been amazed at how fast our business partnership has grown, but I don’t think we’ve seen anything yet.”

Our mission is to surround and support our clients with a collaboration of talents, strengths, influence, and expertise to market and sell real estate for the best price in a successful timeframe.  We believe in a quote from Wade Boggs, “A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events and outcomes.  It is a catalyst and it sparks extraordinary results.”

Brad and Jill have been married for 23 years.  They have two daughters, Sadie and Kate.   They live in Longstreet Hills in Gainesville.  Brad spends time with his family and friends, in the outdoors, golfing, walking, and reading.  They attend First Baptist Church of Gainesville.


About creating The Faces Of:

I love my community and hometown.  My company has recently sold houses here to families from 32 different states and 10 different countries.  People are finding us and loving our community.  We are ambassadors for our community and we thought we should introduce our community, one person at a time, to each other and to the world.  We are telling the story of our community through the terrific people that live and work here, one voice and one face at a time.

If you know of someone that you would like to nominate for this project, please let us know!


About sharing The Faces Of with other professionals in other communities through partnerships:

At first we thought there is no way we would share our secrets.  Then we thought, why not?  This platform has been the very best thing that has ever happened to us and the very best thing I have ever seen to expand one’s leadership, influence, visibility, relevance, and community reach.  It is a marketing platform that ties everything we have wanted to do into one thing.  Creating and fostering relationships is great, but making a true difference in the lives of the people we spotlight is incredibly rewarding.

Sharing this project with one member of each community in this country and beyond will create an amazing network for our partners.  Can you imagine what it will be like to be a part of a vast network where you will know or become connected with the most influential and locally connected business person in every community?

Becoming our partner is easy.  We create the individual community website for you to use and provide you with everything you will need to run your new  The Faces Of your community project.  We will also provide you ideas and coaching encouragement every month, introduce you to other partners around the country, and help you become the most connected, visible, and relevant business person in your community.


A recent client testimonial about Brad:

We love the Abernathy Cochran Group.  We found that Brad had all the answers for every question from contract to the closing on our lake home.  The expertise of himself and his whole group was amazing and their marketing was outstanding.  They never once let us down and always kept us ahead of everything  we needed.  Brad has a very soothing laid back demeanor that will keep you informed as well as  relaxed during the whole listing process.

You will not go wrong by choosing the Abernathy Cochran Group to sell your home!!!
