Johns Creek

From its early beginnings as a series of rural crossroad communities along the Chattahoochee River, the thriving city now known as Johns Creek has come to represent the finest of north Atlanta suburban living. With plenty of recreational opportunities, cultural attractions and convenience to lots of shopping and dining, it’s little wonder that this upscale community of 76,000 is at the heart of one of the fastest-growing areas of the country.

Real Estate

Johns Creek is an affluent suburb with decent appreciation rates, yet its location outside the Atlanta Perimeter offers good value for the money where real estate is concerned.  The median home value is approximately $340,000, but actual home prices vary widely between the low $200s and around $1.2 Million, accommodating a wide range of incomes.  Nearly all the homes in this city have been built since 1970. As a rule of thumb, the most expensive real estate can be found in the southern part of town near the Chattahoochee River.

Attractions and Amenities

Golf is perhaps the most notable attraction in Johns Creek, home to no less than seven championship 18-hole golf courses. The Chattahoochee River offers opportunities for fishing and boating, as well.  The Autrey Mill Nature Preserve and Heritage Center provides the perfect blend of this area’s history and natural beauty, with historic structures, walking trails, and numerous events and activities year-round. Johns Creek is also one of the few suburban communities to have its own symphony orchestra, performing several concerts a year around the area. Numerous fine shops and restaurants can be found in various shopping centers around town, with the popular North Point Mall only 15 minutes away in nearby Alpharetta.
