Team reviews

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.

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!

Listed, but didn't sell my home in 2014 in Saint Simons, Saint Simons Island, GA 31522.

We had our home listed with Mike & Jenn and although we choose to take it off the market due to personal reasons, It was not because of Mike and his team. Randy, Jenn and Mike are wonderful to work with, they had a full price offer within a week of listing, but we were unreachable and it timed out. It is said that everything happens for a reason and we are grateful to them and sorry that we had to pull it. If things ever change for us again the only ones we will work with is Mike & Jenn Banker, and ofcourse Randy too!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $300K in St Simons Island, GA.

Our experience with Mike Banker was great. Mike knows the area like none other. He helped us navigate the island and keep us on track in the limited time frames we had when searching for homes on the weekends we were able to travel from Macon. His real estate knowledge and responsiveness to our needs made this home buying process simple and enjoyable. Mike was also instrumental in our negotiation of the purchase as he was able to save us a substantial amount of money.

It was a pleasant experience to use Mike and his team. He started off as our realtor and now he is our friend.

Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $125K in St Simons Island, GA.

Mike is the best realtor I have ever worked with to date. He is an exceptional negotiator, thinks outside the box, and is available to his clients day or night. 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.

It was a pleasure to work with you. I'm glad that we found you a good deal that was below market short sale, which will be a great investment property for you and your family. Thanks for trusting us.

Mike Banker will find the deal that others only dream of. He is a real estate genius. He found us a six figure home on Sea Island that has doubled in price in two years. He is a real pleasure to be around and makes things happen. His knowledge and incite are so keen it takes buying and selling real estate to a whole new level. Thank you Mike & Jennifer for finding us the perfect home.

Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $350K in St Simons Island, GA.

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. Thanks Mike you guys are great. I "HAVE and DO" recommend you every time the opportunity arises.

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!"

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $425K in St Simons Island, GA.

As a "home town boy", Mike is extremely knowledgeable about the real estate markets on Saint Simons and Sea Islands. He is also a consummate negotiator. After I found the "perfect" house, Mike skillfully negotiated a price that I was willing to pay.
