About Your Host

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 $200 million in residential real estate deals from 2010 to 2017. 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 22 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 being the Host for The Faces Of:

I love my community and hometown.  My group has recently sold houses here to families from 16 different states.  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.

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


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!!!
