Meet Our Founder
A second-generation plantation manager, John is also a land owner himself. Heyward Vann, John's grandfather, was a renowned estate attorney and provided an appreciation for the impact of accounting and estate law on a property's asset value. Growing up on the land gave John a deep understanding of classic land management practices, wildlife ecology and modern techniques.
Today, John manages 2,700 acres under his direct advisement with many additional clients served every year through his company.
John's commitment to conservation practices is matched by his belief in giving back. John is a member the Quality Deer Management Association (QDMA) and Tall Timbers.
John and his wife Lauren live on a plantation he manages in Thomasville and are members of Thomasville First United Methodist Church.
A 70-Year Legacy
Red Hills Land Group has its origin in a long tradition of land stewardship. Founder John Vann's grandfather was prominent tax and estate lawyer Heyward Vann, the founder of Alexander & Vann LLP in Thomasville. The law firm served and continues to serve generations of land and plantation owners with estate management. Heyward's legacy was passed down to Andrew Vann, a plantation manager of one of Thomasville's most historic plantations for 40 years. Today, John continues their legacy with the management of 2,700 acres on three properties. Today, Red Hills Land Group provides outstanding service to land owners throughout Georgia and Florida.
