Get to know John Dotson

Having lived full time in Highlands since 1986, I am intimately familiar with Highlands and the surrounding area.

"Living in Highlands is a dream of so many people, I feel blessed to make that dream my reality and the reality of so many others!".

Twenty seven years of real estate sales in the Highlands and Cashiers area give me a perspective enjoyed by few others.  I devote 110% of my experience in getting the best deal for my clients!


I am very familiar with Highlands, Cashiers and the surrounding areas. Preferred Properties and myself specialize in second home, land and commercial sales.

Being one of, if the not the leading seller of undeveloped tracts in the Highlands area, I can guide you through all the potential potholes of buying or selling raw land in the mountains.

Located strategically on Main Street, and in the same location for over 20 years, Preferred Properties of Highlands is very accessible to buyers and sellers alike.  Our hours are from 9:00 to 5:00 M-F and from 10:00 am until on Saturdays.  To reach us after normal business hours, simply call our office for the after hours number.

Contact me any time.


My best advice for potential buyers:  Make sure you are dealing with a full time LOCAL real estate agent.  There are plenty of agents available that represent themselves as being knowledgeable of our specialized area that are simply... not.


From competitive to collaborative, my negeotating skills are some of the best around - just ask the competition!

    He is a hard worker and very knowledgeable.
