Brad Abernathy

Brad Abernathy, Vice President & Partner with The Norton Agency, 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 $154 million in residential real estate deals from 2010 to 2016. The group sets themselves apart from their peers by marketing their expertise and their clients 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.”

Brad has been married to Jill Venable Abernathy for 20 years. Brad and Jill 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.
