Spend the Day in Brookhaven, GA - JYB Realty

A historic hamlet known for its classic architecture, outstanding local businesses, and welcoming vibe, Brookhaven is located just minutes from downtown Atlanta. Whether you're looking for a new place to settle down or just a fun place to spend a day close to Atlanta, Brookhaven has so much to offer. Our real estate agents have all of the delightful details on how Brookhaven came to be and the experiences you can enjoy when you spend the day there.

  • The History of Brookhaven
    Before it became its own fast-growing city, Brookhaven was actually part of Atlanta's Buckhead neighborhood until 2012. Despite its location a few miles from Atlanta homes for sale, Brookhaven was once a popular place for affluent Atlanta residents to purchase a second home in the early 1900s. Many of those homes and other historic buildings have been preserved, which is why so many people love to experience the architecture of Brookhaven.

Gated Communities - JY&B Realty

Gated communities often convey a feeling of safety and luxury, but they aren't necessarily the best choice for every homebuyer. Our real estate agents at Josey Young & Brady Realty can help you find Atlanta homes for sale in a variety of gated communities and understand whether living in a gated neighborhood is the right choice for you.

The following are some of the most important things you should consider if you're thinking about moving into a gated community:


  • Increased safety and security
    While there's no guarantee against crime, gated communities tend to be safer because access is limited.

  • More amenities and social opportunities 
    Gated communities often have pools, green spaces, clubhouses and/or recreation centers that serve as community hubs. Some also have additional perks such as golf courses or tennis courts. They're likely to host community events that help you form bonds with your neighbors and build a strong sense of community.

Atlanta Holiday Home Safety Tips
The holiday season brings with it an air of excitement and warmth. Amid all of the hustle and bustle of shopping, making preparations for your family gathering, or even finalizing plans for your holiday trip, would-be thieves are also getting ready for the season too. Our real estate agents know the last thing you want this holiday season is for a break-in to happen and ruin your family's holiday and peace of mind. Fortunately, there are some simple steps you can take to safeguard your home during the holidays so you can enjoy this time with your friends and family.

  1. Discourage Package Thieves
    With the rise of online shopping, packages delivered to your home are a target for thieves. Consider having your goods delivered to your office, a neighbor or other point of delivery if you won't be home to receive them. If you do have packages delivered to your home, be sure the front door and walkway are visible to your neighbors, and that home security cameras provide a view of the front door.
