Jackson Realty was founded in 1978 by Rex and Marilyn Jackson. The downtown building on the Lafayette Square was an old service station that was remodeled by Rex and served as the Jackson Realty office for the next 30 years. In 1995, Oliver and Lisa Heyer, the son in-law and daughter of Rex and Marilyn, returned to La Fayette to take over the business after working in Atlanta selling real estate since 1986. The original downtown location was located at 102 N Main Street and since 2007 Jackson Realty has been located at the main intersection of Highway 27 North and Highway 27 N Bypass.

In 2015, Jackson Realty opened an office in Chattooga County on Highway 27 in Summerville Georgia. This allows Jackson Realty and it’s agents to serve all of Northwest Georgia and especially the Walker and Chattooga County Markets. Originally, Jackson Realty operated with Rex Jackson as broker, a few agents and a secretary. Almost 40 years later, we have the Broker, Lisa Heyer, an Agent Support and Office Manager, and 10 professional and trained sales associates covering all of Northwest Georgia and Chattanooga, TN markets. In 1978, on average, Jackson Realty sold approximately 25 homes a year. Currently, Jackson Realty averages selling 20-25 homes a month and approximately 200-300 a year.

From the beginning, Jackson Realty mission was to provide full service real estate brokerage to the community with a personal dedication to everyone served. Both Rex and Marilyn still practice real estate today and have taught many agents since 1978 that service is the key to success. In 1995, Lisa Heyer, the broker added increased market technology in the area. Lisa’s focus has been growing the business through making sure every customer or client is professionally serviced and personally cared for, plus offering the most up to date website and marketing structure available. Jackson Realty has been known for its most user friendly website in our market. Not only do our customers use it, but other company’s agents have referred their customers to our site. And once again, family was involved. Rex and Marilyn’s son and Lisa’s brother, Lamar Jackson created the website in 1995 and has continued its success and updates throughout the years to keep it the “best” out there! Now once again, Lamar has created an even more updated and user friendly website that you are on now. In the last few years there have been many MLS updates and changes and Lamar keeps us up to date at all times. The family of Jackson Realty has built relationships through selling houses.

Over the years, we continue to serve second and third generation of families. We have an incredible amount of repeat customers and we are thankful and proud of the relationships we have built. In addition, in 2014, the third generation joined our company. Tanner Heyer, Oliver and Lisa Heyer’s son and his wife, Devan Heyer joined the family business. Both are working hard and following the same mission of service. It is exciting to see another generation strive to serve our community with the same ethics and company mission as has been for the company since 1978. We look forward to see what this generation brings to the table with all the technology and marketing skills and tools. We continue to offer the best professional service and provide services for Residential, Commercial, Land and Lot Sales. We guarantee we will do everything in our power to make your transaction as easy as possible. We will continue to work with the tools we take pride in…knowledge of the market, integrity, honesty and personal and professional service.
