Our Agency

Downtown Clarkesville Square

Headwaters Realty is an independent full-service real estate agency located in Clarkesville Georgia. We pride ourselves on offering the public “world class” customer service when it comes to buying and selling real estate in northeast Georgia, including integrating the most modern technologies and tools to make the buying and selling process as simple and as easy as possible for the consumer.

In 2005, Dale Holmes left an established local family-owned independent brokerage known as H.M. Thompson Realty in Clarkesville, and opened his own small boutique brokerage office in northern Habersham County near the Batesville community under the name “Headwaters Realty”. The brokerage name came from the fact that the geographical area of northern Habersham, White, and western Rabun counties make up much of the headwaters of the Soque River, the Chattachoochee River, and the upper Savannah River basins.

For five years, Dale as broker/owner ran the single-agent office in the Batesville community, while his wife Jean, a licensed real estate appraiser, later opened a real estate appraisal company known as Land and More Appraisals. In 2011, Alan Baker, a veteran sales manager for Century 21 Community Realty and his wife Angelia, joined Headwaters Realty to expand the growth and presence of the brand in the area.

In 2012, Dale & Jean Holmes and Alan & Angelia Baker organized Headwaters, LLC, purchased and renovated a 1940 Craftsman Bungalow along the historic Washington Street corridor in Clarkesville, and opened their new office in January 2013 at 112 Spring Street under the agency name Headwaters Realty.

Our goal with every client or customer is to create a positive and rewarding buying or selling experience so that you will think of us first when you need a real estate professional in our service area of northeast Georgia.

We look forward to serving you in the future!
