Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $225K in St Simons Island, GA.
Greg Hawthorne is the top agent in the coastal Georgia Region in our opinion. We are relocating from the Atlanta area and Greg spent almost a year helping us find, negotiate and purchase our home. Our demands were tough and we looked over a long time period, and over a number of areas including St Mary's, GA, Brunswick, GA, Saint Simons Island, GA and Darien, GA. During this search Greg was tremendously supportive and encouraging. He was by our side every step of the way and we would not have ended up with the great result we did without Greg's support, guidance, expertise and professionalism. We can give Greg our unqualified recommendation and would encourage anyone to utilize his services. Joe & Leslie Schaitberger Atlanta, GA
From the very first phone call Mr. Hawthorne; I knew immediately he was a southern gentleman. He was curtious, sweet and kind. But also very quick to respond to any questions I had; and handled everything between my loan officer and attorney with ease. He made my first experience in buying my retirement home a real pleasure. We had a few hiccups with our house still going through probate court so it took a little bit longer than usual. But, Mr. Hawthorne made it a walk in the park. If you decide to use him; you won't be disappointed.
Our involvement in this ugly real estate market vastly improved when we listed our house with Greg. We immediately had multiple showings and Greg was instrumental in getting us an offer at least 10% over the comps in our area.
Greg, along with invaluable contacts he has made with the best real estate attorney and others, was made much easier due to his focus and knowledge of a complicated environment to get our house sold and closed on quickly.
He's a great person to have in your corner.
Greg made a dream possible by finding a wonderful second home for me and my family to enjoy for years. He worked diligently for months, understood exactly what I was looking for, and once he found the right property, put the deal together promptly and efficiently. After the sale he made sure we were comfortable with the purchase, and facilitated several introductions with neighbors and service providers to help make the ownership easy and worry free. I would highly recommend Greg to anyone looking to buy property on the Georgia coast.
Greg worked with me to help me find something very specific. Though we didn't find what I needed, Greg continued to show me options and took the time to explain the advantages of each unit. Greg was very friendly and professional. It was obvious that he was respected by the other agents we met. It was a very positive experience and I have decided to have Greg help sell a property in that area, should I decide to move somewhere else.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $150K in St Simons Island, GA.
Recently Greg assisted my wife and I with a short sale of our property on St. Simons Island. We were recomended Greg and was extremely happy with his guidance in this sale. Over this 6 month long ordeal of this short sale Greg remained positive and communicated with us throughout. He always had a back up plan in the event the current plan fell through. Fortunately his initial plan not only worked but ended up much, much better than expected. Communications skills were great. We would recommend Greg in a heartbeat with any real estate sales. Thank you Greg for doing a fantastic job for us.

Greg is great at what he does. He was there every step of the way helping us find the right house for us, and the different options we had. He was very knowledgeable of the SSI area. I felt like he was constantly looking out for our very best interest. I highly recommend Greg Hawthorne.
