Jonathan Milford - Agency Owner
Jonathan graduated from Oglethorpe University in 2000 with a degree in Business Administration and Marketing. He has held a Real Estate license since 2003 and joined the Insurance Industry in 2007. He opened his first agency in Commerce, GA in 2008 for a major "captive" insurance carrier. During that time, he earned several top honors with the company and expanded to 2 locations. In 2016, Jonathan decided to sell both agencies and go out on his own as an "Independent Agent". This move has since given him the ability to meet the needs of more customers as well as offer the best possible pricing in an ever-changing marketplace. The foundation of Jonathan's business model is teamwork, consistent processes within the agency and top notch service and education for customers (being nice and helpful to everyone that calls or comes in usually helps too!). These factors have helped build several successful agencies, including Harmony Insurance.
Jonathan is very involved in the Jackson County and surrounding communities. He and his staff enjoy being involved in many organizations over the years and strive to help each one grow and prosper...

Jonathan has been married to his wife, Lauren, for over 10 years and they have a daughter (Connor, 5) and son (Hix, 2). He has played both golf and guitar most of his life and still enjoys both when time permits (which isn't often with 2 young children!).
Tonia received her Associate of Arts Degree from Gainesville College in 2001 and Bachelor of Business Administration from Brenau University in 2009. She has held her Property & Casualty and Life Insurance licenses since 2004 and became an office manager for Jonathan's agency in 2008. Since that time, she has expanded her knowledge in Commercial Insurance, Workplace Benefits and Worker's Compensation Insurance. Tonia enjoys getting to know her customers on a more personal level and strives to help them make the best possible choices regarding their coverage. Tonia has one daughter and enjoys spending time with her family and friends.
Megan developed a passion for helping people as a young girl and began her career in retail in 2013. She crossed paths with Jonathan in 2015 and he offered her a position in his insurance agency. Megan quickly passed the licensing exams for both Life and Property & Casualty Insurance. She now enjoys helping people learn more about their insurance and why it is important. Megan also holds several certificates for her knowledge in Microsoft's Office Suite; and is pursuing a degree in Business Administrative Technology at Athens Technical College. She enjoys spending her free time curled up with a good book or hanging out with friends.
