Before she was a top-producing agent and business owner, the graduate of Saint Mary's College, Notre Dame, IN, gained experience in operations in the early 1990s by assisting with the relaunch of a real estate franchise company’s first location on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina.
Shortly after and following a lifetime of encouragement by her parents to work for herself, Jean embarked on an entrepreneurial undertaking of her own. She further utilized her degree in finance and created an auditing firm for real estate offices. Once Jean decided to stay planted in Atlanta, Georgia, versus taking her growing business nationwide, she activated her real estate license. Less than 10 years later, in October 1999, she started The Rawls Group and opened the first Keller Williams franchise in the state and the Southeast.
Jean’s leadership by example, passion for people, and commitment to the principles of Keller Williams have been integral to the firm’s ability to expand its family of market centers and agents. She continues to honor and be motivated by Keller Williams’ belief in supplying industry-leading knowledge and wealth-building opportunities.
Throughout its more than two decades in business, The Rawls Group has received widespread praise. The Atlanta Business Chronicle has named the firm Atlanta’s No. 1 Best Place to Work multiple times in the large company category. The Rawls Group has also ranked high on RISMedia’s Power Broker Report.
When not focused on work, you’ll often find Jean with her sons, Noble and Steel, unwinding at Lake Hartwell or traveling.
