From the age of 12, Mike Banker grew up on Sea Island and attended Frederica Academy.  After school, travel and various business endeavors in Boston, New York and abroad, Mike moved back to Sea island and started flipping homes and developing land.  
In 2008, Mike became well versed in REOs and bank foreclosures.   He saw a niche market for someone who really understood the foreclousre 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 no one was 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 for years.  
Mike also had the added benefit of having a mother who had been one of the top real estate professional on Saint Simons and Sea Island for over 34 years.  
As an aside, Mike comes from a golfing family -- my step-father was the secretary of the USGA and my mom a 2 handicap in her day.  My passion is more for racing sailboats or windsurfing when its white-capping although Mike does like to play golf.  
Today, Mike makes his home on St Simons Island with my wife and business partner, Jennifer and has one son, Nicholas.   Jennifer and Mike have a major focus on working with buyers and have a focus on finding deals and foreclosures and work together as the Banker Group.  If you would like to sign up for our weekly email newsletter focusing on weekly deals and pending foreclosures, please sign up at our website, www.SSIDeals.com.  They also started and run Banker Real Estate and have a few other like minded agents on their team who are also top producers in the area.
For Sellers, we have programs in place, including the Banker Guarantee.  Ask us about our plan to have your house under contract in 60 days or less.

Team reviews

What seperates Mike and Jennifer from others is their willingness to provide value added services before during and after the sale that other agents don't. 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. They are professional, detail oriented, and they follow up. In short they are great to work with.

Bought a home in 2015.

I’ve worked with a lot of real estate agents over the years, and I have to say Mike is one of the best. Not only does Mike know the island like the insider he is, he’s equally knowledgable about design, investment potential, and financing. And since Mike’s wife, Jennifer, works with him, clients get two for one. (And Jennifer is a former real estate attorney.) Mike and Jennifer are a pleasure to work with.  More Less

Showed home in 2015 in Saint Simons, Saint Simons Island, GA 31522.

Mike and Jennifer were extremely helpful to me in sharing information about auctions and values. He certainly went beyond what most realtors would share and do. I am from out of town and needed information and contacts which he provided. He was quick with his responses and professional in every way. Having been in the real estate business for over 16 years, I appreciated the team work of Mike and Jennifer. Thank you both!  More Less
