What People are Saying

Renee Johnson was amazing!! I was purchasing a home in Georgia while living in Mississippi. She worked diligently to find me the perfect home Always quick to respond to my questions! It took some time but she was able to find the home I was looking for!! I could not be happier!!! Thru the closing and beyond. Absolutely will use her again and recommend her highly Patrice Schultz
This was actually my second experience. Four years ago she sold me the home and now she sells it for me. Both experiences were incredible. Julie's knowledge of the market was spot on. Her experience and professionalism was evident throughout the process. Thanks to Julie Martin I got the price I was looking for and in a minimal amount of time. I cannot recommend Julie enough. If anyone in the Brunswick area is looking to buy or sell. Contact Julie Martin 1217 Union St Thurman Jarrell
"Amy was superb! She was professional and on top of things while providing a personal, warm, and friendly experience. She was never too busy for us. And she was committed for the long haul until we finished the deal with the right fixer upper for our family home. CHOOSE AMY! " 323 Brookman
"It was a very good experience with Julie Martin. We have been looking for a house for 2years, We have lived in two states. It is difficult finding homes when you are in another state, However with Julie's help it was simple and made very easy for us. She went over and beyond expectations. We have had several other realtors that did not do half of what Julie did for us. None of this would have been possible for us to purchase this house without her commitment to helping us get this accomplished. We may have one more house to purchase and if it is in her territory we will be certain to be calling Julie. If you're unsure of where you're buying look up Julie Martin in Brunswick Georgia." kimbo320 151 Stately Oaks Cir Brunswick, GA 31523 Kimbo

She knows everyone and everything about the island (and SE Georgia in general) and is also thoughtful, honest, and sharp! We hope to not use a realtor for many years, but if we do it will be Dana and David!" Carter Brown Carter Brown

This time we were out of town and Dana went into our home, stagged it, fixed it up, put it on the market sold it and arranged for the home inspection repairs for us! All we had to do was come home pack and leave. It was the easiest sale for us and Dana did way more than any agent needed to do! She was AMAZING!

Even though Dana has several clients she made us feel as though we were her only ones and was always available to us! Thank you Dana!" Matt & Debbie Nasser

Whether your looking to buy or sale property in Glynn County I would recommend Wendi. She works very hard to meet your needs. She's always available and responds very quickly should you need her. She's a Glynn County native and knows this area well. She's very knowledgeable and very ready to work with! Geraldine Sapp

"Lesley is personable, professional and an extreme pleasure to work with. I have had the pleasure to list and sell two homes with her and could not be happier with both of the opportunities to team up with her." Kim Strickland
Donna Livingston went above and beyond what I expected from a realtor. She answered phone calls promptly, she provided names of responsible workmen or companies who helped me get the villa ready for a smooth move-in ready day, and she negotiated the final settlement issues professionally and reasonably. I am very grateful for her services. Mary DeLorenzo
Ms. Julie helped me to understand the process of selling my home such as closing cost and pricing my home correctly as well as answering my questions without hesitation. Brenda Gibson
"Kathleen is very personable, was always accessible, new the market and area well. She has been a very good resource in a variety of ways as well, which has been helpful in transitioning to SSI." Theresa Brower
When I first contacted Kathleen to view a property she had listed, I assumed it would be just the same old process I have already done. The property in question was unique in the sense that it was older, had great potential, but had some deal breakers for most buyers. I was very pleased that Kathleen was the agent in charge as she was easy to reach either by phone or email. Always gave prompt replies. And acted as a great go-between us and the sellers in order to reach a contract for the property that was a win-win. I know that the sellers got a great market value for the house in this sellers’ market; however, I feel as though us as buyers were also able to secure a house that was perfect for us as our family grows. I feel as though this says a lot about the caliber of a professional Kathleen is in order to have all parties walk away happy. Kathleen’s prompt communication allowed us to close on the property even sooner expected. I highly recommend Kathleen Haller! David C. Lewis, PhD
"Julie did not give up. She helped us understand the process and pointed out the pros and cons of all of our offers on our homes. She was knowledgeable of experts who helped with the inspection process leading to the sale. Awesome job!" The Snyders
My home buying experience with Amy Houston was one of absolute satisfaction! She was reliable and very patient from beginning to end. She worked extra hard to help me select a home to meet my needs and specifications. I appreciate her very much and recommend her highly as an excellent real estate agent. Laura Ann
We have been so impressed with Amy. She is very professional. Amy provides more services than any realtor we have ever known and Job related moves have required us to relocate often. She is responsive at all times and does whatever she can to help. She even swept off our porch with our permission! Kathy K
Lesley was on top of everything from the word go! Very flexible and had answers for any questions in minutes. Can’t speak highly enough of her, thanks again! #agent4life Cindy
Lesley, there are not enough words to express my appreciation and gratitude towards you with helping me find the perfect home. You held my hand the entire time and made it so stress free, and you are still here with me after the closing. When I tell you you rock I mean that 110%... Thank you so much for being here for me and it feels good to know that I can contact you any time with any questions. Jerria McWilliams
Dana, you and your team really came through for us on both of our properties. We really appreciate how well you all work together to get the job done! Please relay our gratitude to David and Lesley. Donna W
Amy helped us find our home on St. Simons Island. She made the process so easy as we were shopping from Atlanta. Her knowledge of the area and experience were a tremendous benefit. We highly recommend her. Zillow
Kathleen, thank you so much for your help, assistance and guidance. Above all, we thank you as a friend! Siri Ann & Ed
Amy was recommended to us by our son when we decided to relocate to Glynn County. Amy helped us find and buy a home on St. Simons and then 6 months later sell that home a purchase a larger one in Brunswick. Five stars in every area. I felt like she was on our side and represented us extremely well. Please give Amy a call! Kathy Thompson
Used Amy to buy two residential properties and to sell one within the past year and a half. Found her to be knowledgeable, friendly and professional. She was especially helpful staying neutral but pointing out characteristics of homes when my wife and I had differing opinions on the same properties. John Thompson
I first found Amy Houston when searching for a realtor to help me sell a lot in a resort community in McIntosh County, GA. Amy was great. So professional and helpful at every turn. We sold the lot and she made the closing very easy and complete. When my husband and I were ready to move to Saint Simons Island from the North Georgia Mountains, Amy was the first person we called to help us find a new home to meet our needs. She quickly understood our interests and desires for a new home. Her research was very thorough and she worked patiently with us to see every available home that met our parameters. When we found a house, she worked very hard to make the deal work for us. She arranged for professionals to help us with estimates for all the repairs that concerned us so we could go into the purchase with full knowledge. Because of issues with the seller's situation, the closing became complicated. Amy kept us informed at every turn. McIntosh County Buyer
My wife and I had the pleasure of working with Amy this summer. And it was a pleasure. Six stars in every category, as she always went the extra mile. Simply the best. Thanks Amy! Greg
This is my second time in using Dana Gardner and her team. She is a wonderful real estate broker and worked very hard to sell my house and both times exceeded my expectations. She is very responsive and a joy to work with. I would highly recommend her to anyone. Lisa
During our military, civilian and retired years we have bought and sold a number of homes. We retired on St Simons Island, GA. Carol Warner is right at the top of the real estate agents we have dealt with. We have used her as our seller and our buyer and have been very pleased. She always kept us informed on our transactions, promptly returned our calls and kept within the price range we selected. She is one of the most sincere and honest people we know. The highest compliment we can give is to recommend her to others, which we have done. Candl Riddell
Without Wendi, I never would have been able to get my house sold. There were many complications due to the buyer and her agent’s mishandling almost every step in this sale. Wendy stepped up and made it happen. She is awesome!! Kelly
Wendi was very helpful and knowledgeable. She knew the answers to all my questions and was able to offer advice and recommend people and services. She made buying my house so easy! Kelli
Love Dana!! I've bought 2 homes & sold 1 with her & her thoughtfulness and attention to detail is beyond compare!! Everyone has been asking me who I worked with on this last home & I text them her contact info! Wouldn't be where I am without her! Carrie
Dana is a true professional, with great attention to detail and a commitment to her clients. We felt that she went above and beyond throughout the home buying process, and continues to stay in touch as we get to know our new neighborhood. We grew to have a large amount of confidence in her suggestions and opinions. We are grateful to have been able to work with her! Highly recommended. Callie
Ms. Gardner was easy to do business with and displayed all the qualities of an experienced, trained, knowledgeable pro: quickly responded to phone calls, provided timely updates, and prevented and solved problems between buyer/seller to prevent delays. She always responded to my requests with quick resolution. I would recommend her services. Maggie
Kathleen is a very capable and professional agent that represented me in purchasing a home. She is a can do person that goes out of her way to represent your best interests. She is very well connected within the community which offers great insight and results. Her opinions and recommendations were very valuable and appreciated. She's the best!
Kat was able to guide us expertly, even when we weren't sure what we needed. She showed us several great prospects. The house we chose has become our home and we can't imagine living anywhere else.
Dana did an outstanding job helping Peggy and I find a home. She is very caring and understanding. Dana is very good in her field and is always willing to help in any way she can. I highly suggest her as a realtor as she always goes the extra mile in every way! Joey
I've had the opportunity to work with Dana twice in the last year and a half. Let me just say that the sale of both properties were extremely fast! Two days for the first and less than a month for the second! Dana's rolodex is extensive and she goes above and beyond the call of duty. You will feel like her one and only client! If you're looking to buy or sell, then you need to look no further! I'm a loyal customer for life! Brett
Dana was delightful to work with! She was professional and knowledgeable, making our real estate transaction very smooth and stress-free! She was thorough and clearly explained each task to be completed throughout the process. We would happily work with her again! Lisa
Dana is the best agent I have worked with as a buyer. She continues to assist us with anything we need and questions we've had even after we had already purchased and moved in. Jeremy
Wendi is a wonderful real estate agent. My husband and I worked with a couple other real estate agents prior to meeting Wendi, and she was hands down the best. Wendi is honest, professional, and always available to meet your needs. My husband and I without a doubt will use Wendi again when we decide to buy or sell a home in the future.
If you need a professional realtor, Dana should be your first choice. Connected to the community, experienced, successful, and a joy to work with. Dana has a proven track record and she uses the highest quality of technology, i.e. photography,on-line listings,websites, and local networking, to give you a complete sense of being "all-in" for you. Her results are remarkable! We had an offer on our recent home within hours of it being listed, sight unseen by the ultimate buyer, and a signed contract to buy before the end of the day. Who wants that kind of success?? Probably you! Kirby
Julie helped us maximize the bottom line when selling our property. In addition she was very helpful from staging to closing. She is an expert in her field. Tim Wilson
We have worked with Wendi through the last year in looking to sell our house and upgrade into the same area. She has been very professional and responsive to our every call and concern, despite our hesitation and indecision in the current market. She has always been a call away to answer any questions. We ultimately decided to not move at this time, but whenever we do(whether a year or 5 years) we will use her Walt
