Bought a Single Family home in 2016 for approximately $600K in St Simons Island, GA.

          

If you are looking for a RE agent on St. Simons then you really don't need to talk to anyone other than Mike and Jenny Banker.  I had never been to St. Simons and after trading a few emails with Mike I flew down and he took me around the island for an entire day showing me listings and I found my  perfect retirement home that very day.  Mike negotiated a great price for me and Jenny helpfully walked me thru every detail of the paperwork.  I really cant say enough about them and how glad I am that I worked with them to buy my home and how seamless they made it for me.  They both know the area so well and they can connect you with the best vendors to help you with your diligence/close on your home (mortgage broker, insurance, home inspection).  You really cant do better than this professional and dynamic couple.

My husband and I are not islanders . It has been a 6 year dream to own a home that could be shared with family. Mike and Jennifer helped us achieve that dream. Professional, warm and friendly, they were patient  with us  and through the process of buying a foreclosure. They gave wise advice which  we were happy to follow. I always felt they were acting in our best interest. We love the house, the location and the life. Thanks Mike and Jennifer. You are the best

The Bankers were great realtors!  They were knowledgeable and fun to work with.


We were moving from out of state, and they found an off-market property and negotiated a below market price / good value for the current market.  The property we purchased has a great potential for increased value one  we make updates.  We can't wait to settle into our new home.  


The Bankers also continued to be helpful after the sale for local advise and direction. Not only good realtors, but great restaurant advice!Less

As newcomers to the Golden Isles we talked with several Real Estate agents. We were not satisfied with any until we meet the Bankers. They are true Real Estate professionals not just agents. Anyone can drive you around an area showing you what is listed. It is that rare breed that has their finger  on the pulse of the area, has the creativity to find interesting properties, and the vision to see what a property could be not just what it is. They have the local connections to put together a team to turn a house into your home. You can’t go wrong with them as they’ll devote their entire attention and energy to your needs. At least that’s what they did with us.

We were so impressed with their work we’ve already bought a 2nd house with their assistance. As an added bonus they’re just fun, interesting people to be around so there’s never a dull moment when you’re out with them on viewings. We highly recommend Mike and Jennifer Banker for your RE needs in the Golden Isles. Whether for the home you plan on living in or an investment property, they are your best resource on the islands.Less

I have visited St Simons my whole life, but when we decided to purchase a house there, I wanted a buyer's agent to give me guidance.  I could not have asked for a better agent than Mike Banker. He returned my emails and phone calls promptly, he is very familiar with the local market, and went above  and beyond what you would expect in an agent.  Mike and Jennifer are the kind of folks you instantly feel like you've been friends with for years. They made handling the transaction smooth for me... from a distance of over 5 hours away!  I would, and already have, recommend Mike and Jennifer to anyone looking at St Simons.Less

Mike Banker was our buyers’ agents in our search for a home on St. Simons. I have worked with a number of agents over the years, and I rank Mike at the top.

Since Mike is a native of St. Simons, he knows the real estate market and also is well connected. Once we decided on the property we wanted, he immediately put us in contact with a contractor and an architect, while also giving us names of several others from whom to choose. Of course, Mike is doubly effective given the expertise of his wife, Jennifer, who works closely with him and is a valuable resource herself. I recommend Mike and Jennifer without reservation. Less

            They access their network of local architects, builders, attorneys, and surveyors to provide you with all the information so you can make an  informed decision. In addition they act not only as your agent but as your consultant giving you advice; not salesmanship, through every step of the process.

Mike and his wife Jennifer are an excellent team. It is comforting to know that Mike is representing me due to my being out of town. Mike knew how much I was willing to pay for the property and he took it from there. I never felt out of the loop during the process. Mike sent Emails and made phone calls on a regular basis. When we made the offer I think Mike was as excited as my wife and I were when it was approved. But the support did not stop there. Being from the SSI area mike developed a contractor's list to bid pre-closing inspections and remodeling work. We feel like we have made two new friends and intend to use them on our next purchase.

For those of you who are about to choose a local real estate agent on SSI, look no further. You have found the man for the job! And for those of us who have already worked with Mike, we know how special an agent he is for his clients. It goes without saying that you can expect exceptional service and understanding, but what you will discover, is you have a new friend and local knowledge source.


While its true Mike loves the more complex sales - short sales, multiple bids, foreclosures, etc., he does the simple sale just as well and with the same fervor as any other deal. So no matter what your looking for, call Mike. When it is all said and done, I promise you that you will call him a friend and when you drive around the island, you will find others who sing his praises.


Seriously, look no further. You have the guy. Stop. Just contact him!


He even works on holidays, just ask my wife who picked Labor Day to call him....We knew we were in good hands, when....."In walked Mike!"

He has a knack for tracking down deals and/or finding things that others don't know are available. He is so good that he has lots of demands on his time, but it you will be patient and wait for him, you will have his undivided attention. He also has a great team of people working around him. I have never seen anyone work harder or better for his clients. If you want to be aggressive and find a deal, Mike is your guy! I did not know whether to choose a large company with many agents or a smaller company like Banker Real Estate. After talking with Mike, I was convinced that his personalized service, attention to the internet, and excellent location would be advantageous, so I chose him. He could not have been more helpful. His advice was always correct. He did an exhaustive study of comparable properties, and we felt well-prepared. He gave us much more of his time and attention than I would expect from most of his competitors. Mike was solid and dependable during an arduous, contentious negotiation. He was available 24/7, and made excellent use of all forms of communication. I trust Mike completely, and I would recommend him to anyone.

I wish there was a higher rating to grant Mike, he's just that good! My husband I decided to purchase a piece of investment property on St Simons Island. I immediately started researching on Zillow and Mike popped up in the sidebar. He had some great reviews, so I gave him a call. Mile was quick to take note of what we were looking for, our future plans, and our budget. He immediately went to work on finding our investment. We traveled to the island in Sept, for an anniversary trip, and to look @ what he hand picked for us. He was spot on, and when we decided on our property he fought hard to get us an amazing deal. DO NOT HESITATE to work with Mike. I could go on and on about how amazing he is, so find out for yourself!

Mike and his wife Jennifer combined great knowledge of the local market with first rate service. My wife and I have bought a number of houses over the years in at least 6 different markets, and we thought that Mike was the best broker that we have used. The house that we bought was 3000 miles away from where we currently live, but Mike's level of responsiveness and service made us feel like we were "on site" during the entire process. Even more impressive is Mike's continuing help well after the closing. He and Jennifer are providing very helpful recommendations for utilities, contractors and other services to relieve much of the strain of managing the process from afar.

From the age of 12, Mike Banker grew up on Sea Island, Georgia.  After pursuing school, travel and various business endeavors in Boston, New York and abroad, Mike moved back to Sea island, Georgia, and started flipping homes and developing land.  

Mike had a few good years but when the crash hit in 2008, he lost most money and properties.  Through that experience, he became well versed in REOs and bank foreclosures.  He saw a niche market for someone who really understood the foreclosure industry and had a passion for negotiating deals, which is what he had been doing and enjoying in all of his businesses and real estate endeavors.  

At a time when few were able to sell real estate, Mike started a company to capitalize on the depressed market and has been one of the most successful agents in St Simons and Sea Island, Georgia, for the past several years.  

Mike also had the added benefit of having a mother who had been one of the top real estate professionals on Saint Simons and Sea Island, Georgia, for over 34 years.


Mike and Jennifer's focus is on finding below market deals and foreclosures on St. Simons and Sea Island, Georgia, they work together as The Banker Group.
