More than Just a Broker…
Uniquely Servicing as Advisors, We are the Servant Leaders in This Niche
Owning these unique properties is more than simply buying land. It’s a lifestyle; it’s a part of one’s legacy, one’s soul and it’s oftentimes the most cherished investment one can make in their lifetime. Whether it’s helping find that perfect place or finding the perfect buyer, when the time is right our firm is unique in that our purpose is to be the servant leaders in this niche. Brokerage and marketing is how we make our living, but making sure these properties are enjoyed, stewarded over, and also great investments is our purpose. This market niche gets better and better every day as more people realize how special, rare, and unique they are. From brokerage, marketing, valuations, and land management, what we do is certainly different but it works and works well.
With a servants heart, Jon Kohler & Associates started with a passion for natural places and to show they should be in a market by themselves. Jon Kohler & Associates is the leading authority on plantations, ranches, and high-quality properties representing the best land stewards in the Southeast. With almost three decades specializing in this niche, our real estate brokerage, marketing, and advisor firm is best known as the preeminent source of knowledge of high-quality land, for our unmatched marketing, and for representing the top properties in this niche. Our unique philosophy about these unique properties is that they are in an asset class by themselves which has led us to selling more than 235,000 acres since 2010 alone. We are more than a traditional broker, our primary focus is to ensure good land stewardship is financially rewarded.
Since 2010 alone, we have closed more than 235,000 acres and $506M in sales. Examples include some of the most prestigious plantation sales in the Thomasville/Tallahassee and Albany markets as well as the Alabama Plantation Belt, such as Disston (twice), the historic Greenwood Plantation, Longpine Plantation, Chemonie Plantation, Chinquapin (twice), Southern Heritage, Nochaway, and also Shell Creek Plantation in AL, as well as holding title to the largest timberland sale (Rock Creek/Molpus) in the Southeast in 8 years.
In 2013, we co-founded LandLeader, the largest land marketing company in America. With over $3.4 billion in sales during its first 3.5 years as a startup. Today Jon sits on the board of directors.
We also specialize in all areas of conservation easements including developing the 950 acre Centerville Conservation Community which is regarded as one of the finest neighborhoods in North Florida and boasts 70% of the land under conservation. In 2006, it was recognized by the Florida Legislature as a role model for development for the State of Florida. We understand all aspects of sales, marketing, and development of the land ownership cycle. We know and love land and are landowners and conservationists ourselves with over 850 acres with examples of almost every North Florida and South Georgia habitat type under our stewardship. Most of our property is under a conservation easement.
We spend 100% of our time representing and advising the high quality land market. We continue to set records throughout the southeast and the plantation belts. We are extremely well-capitalized and have enormous energy to attack today’s market changes and constant challenges.
We pray every day for the wisdom to best advise people on their real estate goals. We take our role in finding new stewards for the special properties in our region very seriously. Before you list or buy a high quality investment property, give us a call.
The properties we represent are in an asset class by themselves. Our firm provides a high level of specialty knowledge beyond what a typical brokerage is able to provide. Our team takes our role in finding new stewards for the special properties very seriously. Our staff hold a Juris Doctorate, a Masters, two Bachelors in Real Estate, and an Accredited Land Consultant. We not only love land and broker land, but live the lifestyle ourselves and manage our own timberland, ranch, and hunting lands.

We Are Servant Leaders to this Niche
Passionately Serving Those that Share the Land Stewardship and Conservation Ethic
The world is increasingly distracted by technology and hobbies we couldn’t dream up a week ago. In order for the lifestyle that we cherish and land that we love to continue, it is imperative that we demonstrate the financial, intrinsic, and lifestyle rewards of owning such land. Eventually, even the most family cherished properties will be sold. Our job is to be the “gatekeepers” and when it’s time to sell, to make sure that the landowner is rewarded financially and we have buyers willing to pay a premium and be good land stewards themselves.
Mark 12:31 (KJV)
31 And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour
as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.
