Welcome to Brookhaven
A burgeoning young city striking a chord for residents.

Centered around Oglethorpe University, the area draws its character from a varied mix of residents in affluent country club subdivisions and academic enclaves, as well as a vibrant demographic of young professionals.
A fashionable yet family-friendly Dekalb county neighborhood balancing an interesting combination of trendy hotspots with traditional community enhancements. Strong infrastructure, proximity to major highways, and MARTA rail service add to the ease of Brookhaven living.
