Jere Mills

Sales Executive

Jere is the uncle of R.E.M. guitarist Mike Mills.

Jere Mills loves to linger longer.


Lured to Lake Oconee through the persuasion of an old friend, famed Southern humorist and writer Lewis Grizzard, Jere Mills and his wife, Bebe, visited Reynolds Lake Oconee on a fall weekend and promptly fell in love. They became Reynolds residents in 1995 and Jere began working for Reynolds Lake Oconee Properties that same year. He’s since sold over $100 million in property as a Sales Executive.

Outside of work, Jere stays busy through a variety of activities. He goes to the gym five mornings a week and enjoys relaxing on his pontoon boat in the evenings. A formidable scratch golfer when he was younger, Jere still plays golf when he can — though when asked about the current state of his golf game, he says it’s a good thing he has a day job.

Jere and Bebe are supporters and frequent attendees of the Linger Longer Living Series lectures and OPAS (Oconee Performing Arts Society) performances. They enjoy good cuisine and count local establishments Silver Moon, The Creek Club and The Tavern as some of their favorite places to dine.

Most important, Jere and Bebe are known for throwing the best Halloween party in the Lake Oconee area — complete with a live band and The Varsity food truck! The party itself has been featured in a few local magazines, providing a bit of lore to an event that just started as a fun way to get together with friends.
