Welcome to Johns Creek
The up-and-coming business hub where modern innovation meets lush natural landscapes and deep-rooted history.
On the surface, the city of Johns Creek resembles a young, master-planned community. Thoughtfully designed residential neighborhoods and vast stretches of unspoiled, protected landscapes contribute to an arcadian atmosphere, while the city’s reputation as a growing hub for business and its relatively recent incorporation in 2006 gives Johns Creek a modern edge.
And yet for all of its refreshing newness, Johns Creek is an area steeped in a rich history that dates back centuries to its earliest Native residents, the Cherokee Nation. From the gold rush in the North Georgia foothills to the recent boom in commercial business development, Johns Creek has continued to evolve in surprising ways.
Johns Creek's present-day rise in population has created a residential real estate market that’s full of relatively new homes, built in the 1980s or later. Among the most coveted homes of Johns Creek, potential buyers will find stately, detached single-family and executive houses tucked behind the gates of private communities. Architecture can vary greatly in Johns Creek, and these contemporary abodes pull inspiration from various styles of the past to create a timeless aesthetic.
What to Love
- Home to some of the best schools in the state, public and private
