Service Area

Chastain & Associates, a Gilmer County Georgia surveyor offers a wide service area in North Atlanta, North Georgia, Southeast Tennessee, the southwest region of North Carolina, and Alabama. This was not easy in years past. However, technology has made a wider area much more efficiently served. Previously someone had to go to the courthouse each time a survey was conducted, review the property assessors maps, and go to the Clerk's Office to copy deeds and plats as necessary to properly conduct the survey. Today much, if not all, of this information is available online. This allows us to research a property 50 miles away as efficiently as one right up the street from our office. It also allows us to research properties after hours and on weekends. Many transactions require that the survey be reviewed by many parties before closing. This often results in minor changes being requested, ranging from the way names are stated on the plat to how division lines are described on the plat. Until a few years ago this required sending out many overnight packages at least twice during the course of a survey. Today, PDF files can be created and emailed almost instantly to as many recipients as necessary anywhere on the globe. We also have the ability to incorporate various information and images into detailed maps and renderings.
