Dawson County will soon be seeing more of that familiar yellow sign popping up.
The Norton Agency, a real estate service that also specializes in mortgage, insurance, commercial brokerage, relocation, management, rentals, home repair, home warranty and closing services officially opened a new branch in Dawson County last week.
"I just wanted to say how excited we all are to have the Norton Agency here," said Christie Haynes, president of the Dawson County Chamber of Commerce, during the April 10 ribbon cutting. "They've been a tremendous part of Dawson County already."
Kristie Myers, a partner with the Norton Agency and an associate broker, said that Dawson County was the ideal place for a new location.
"We felt like most of our business was already centered around Dawson County and it gives us a more central area to work out of," she said. "In areas where we do have a lot of business and are dedicated to the community, we like to have an office located there, too."
Myers said that the Norton Agency had a commitment to Dawson County already.
"Norton has always had a big commitment to Dawson County. We like areas where we can really focus on the community," she said. "This is the type of area we love."
While the Norton Agency is moving a major branch to Dawson County, the head office will remain in Gainesville.
"Green Street will still be our hub. It's our ‘mother ship,' as we like to call it," she said.
The Dawson County Norton Agency branch is located in the Chestatee Building on Hwy. 53 East.
