Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $225K in Eatonton, GA.
My wife and I just purchased a lake home on Sinclair with Tammy Lankford as our agent. We were extremely pleased with her. She was relaxed, patient and not pushy at all. She led us to the type homes we were looking for until we found the right one. Her knowledge of the area and advice on issues to look out for was a huge asset in our search. In addition, she was a big help in dealing with the mortgage company with whom we had issues with so we could get our home closed in a somewhat timely fashion.
We feel that on top of having a great real estate agent, we've also gained a new friend.

Tammy is very knowledgeable about the local real estate market and great to work with. Being a local, she can provide a wealth of information, including recommended contractors to assist with the home buying process. We would definitely recommend Tammy as your realtor.
I purchased two lots from a client Tammy represented in July 2012. I was extremely happy with her professionalism and responsiveness. I had purchased a lake house from another client of Tammy's in 2004 and was equally impressed. I would and have recommended Lane Realty/Tammy Lankford.
My husband and I had been looking at lake homes online for two months before deciding that we needed to actually see some properties. Because there were so many things I liked about Tammy Lankford after reading her blog, I sent her an email asking her to be our buyer's agent. She said she'd be happy to, and we made our first trip to Eatonton, GA to look at homes. Six months later in May of 2011, we closed on our Lake Sinclair vacation home.
Working with Tammy was always so comfortable. After our first meeting we felt like we'd known her for years. She was readily available to us by email, phone, and in person. She took us to see properties that she chose according to our wish list and that we chose from looking online. She answered our numerous questions, and if something came up she didn't know, she'd find someone with the answer. She gave us good advice about the many homes we saw and recommendations about people to use during the closing process. Tammy was the right fit for us and made our home-buying experience a pleasure. We wouldn't hesitate to use Tammy again or recommend her to anyone else needing an agent for that area. We still call Tammy if we need information, and she always takes the time to help us. Bobby and Angela

Thanks so much for your super kind words Angela & Bobby. You know I will always be happy to help you find the answers. I feel like you guys are family too. Looking forward to seeing you this summer.

I contacted Tammy as a buyer's agent when looking to purchase my first home. She is always very responsive, trustworthy and knowledgeable, and she has always kept me informed about things before I even had a chance to ask her about them. I highly recommend her. She has made the process of buying a home much easier than I ever imagined it could be. I am now under a contract to buy my first home with the closing date quickly approaching! Her 5 star review is well deserved and very accurate; if I ever need another realtor again I will be calling her. Thanks, Tammy!

It's been my pleasure to work with you. I can't wait to come visit when you get all settled in your home and always feel free to give me a call if you need anything.
I first bought my lake home from Tammy in 1999. I had looked at many properties before and Tammy convinced me that this property in Possum Point on Lake Sinclair was a great deal. She provided me with many comparables in the area and I quickly agreed that I should purchase the property which I did. Throughout the years of owning my lakehome Tammy always stayed in contact with me and helped me on numerous occasions. Once she came to my property since I live 2 hours away in Atlanta and turned off my water pump in the dead of winter so my pipes would not freeze. Another time she helped out my family, in my absence , by coming to the rescue with some jumper cables due to a dead car battery.
I could have easily listed my house when I was ready to sell without any assistance since I am a licensed real estate agent, but I chose to list with Tammy instead. Her many connections and contacts come from living in the Putnam county area all of her life. I highly recommend using Tammy for all of your real estate needs. You will be very glad you did.

I got you a check. LOL I miss you not being my neighbor, but I know one of these days you'll be buying on the lake again.
Bought a Single Family home in 2009 in Milledgeville, GA.
Looked for the perfect lake home for many months. Tammy took us to some over and over again by our request. She was always avaliable, on the phone and in person and she guided us quite successfully to our near perfect lake home.
My wife and I are both real estate agents in Atlanta but wanted someone local who knew the market inside and out to sell our lake home. I interviewed several agents over the phone after searching different websites. After a brief but informative conversation with Tammy Lankford on the phone, I made the decision to hire her. She made several helpful suggestions on improvements that would help make the home show better. She has a great sense of humor and didn't hesitate to tell us that our blue kitchen was straight out of the 80's. I knew she was right and reluctantly painted it the updated color that she suggested and, of course, my wife loved it too. She did make some other suggestions that I just "didn't get too" but I appreciated her honesty. During the time our home was on the market, she was went out of her way and even met a locksmith at the house when the lock was jammed. Ultimately, we decided to take our home off the market and wait for a more favorable time to sell. When we do decide to sell again, we will DEFINITELY relist with Tammy. Garry and Nancy
I was looking for a retirement home at Lake Sinclair. After not finding a home to offer on with another agent in her company, Tammy recommended a few more homes to look at and one of them turned out to be the perfect place for me and my 4-legged children right on the lake. It is just perfect for us with the solitude of living on the lake, neighbors just close enough and and close to my family and Milledgeville, so all the conveniences are nearby for this city girl. Tammy was also instrumental in connecting me with a dynamite lender from whom I was able to get a fantastic fixed rate. As if that weren't enough, she continued to be supportive by recommending exceptional home inspector, surveyor and other professionals whose work she knew and could recommend. It is vital to have a knowledgeable and skilled realtor when you are buying in an area unfamiliar to you. Thanks Tammy for helping me find my affordable perfect retirement home!

I'm so excited that you'll soon be a neighbor. I can't wait.
We had been looking at lake property all around the State of Georgia for about a year. After telling Ms. Lankford what we wanted she found us the perfect home for a great price. We have enjoyed our retirement home for the past 12 years. She has done the same for several of our friends. Tammy has an amazing knowledge of Lake Sinclair. In todays market there are a lot of great deals in this area. If you want one you should give Tammy Langford a call.
