Michael did an excellent job for us as a buyer's agent. He was easy to get in touch with, kept us informed every step of the way, and seemed almost as excited as we were when the contract was signed. He also appears to have a great working relationship with other realtors. I would definitely recommend Michael to anyone in the market for real estate in the area.

Michael is a real pleasure to work with. He is both knowledgeable and professional. He listens, reacts, and responds quickly to our questions and needs. We cannot imagine finding someone easier ... or more qualified to work with. We look forward to continuing our relationship as we search for our dream vacation home.

Michael Billings is extremely professional and the most knowledgeable realtor I have ever worked with! My home in Apalachicola was listed on 12/1/16 and was under contract on 1/11/17---just 41 days after listing. We closed on 2/23--just 84 days start to finish. Remarkable--thank you Michael Billings!!!
Carol Anne Simmons ~ Charlottesville, VA (March 2017)
Michael is one of the most patient, professional and competent real estate agents I have worked with. His no pressure style and non-biased advice ensured that we ended up with the right beach property for us. We couldn't be more thrilled and are confident we will work with him in the future.
Lisa Speakman ~ St. George Island (July 2016)
We live out of town and wanted to sell our vacation home in The Plantation. I'd been receiving e-mails and mailings from several realtors. I liked Michael's "Straight Answers and Sound Advice" approach so I gave him a call. He was showing a property and said he'd call me in an hour. True to his word, he called within an hour. He put together a three part market analysis and valuation which proved to be spot on. Michael worked with me on making a punch list and provided me with the names of several contractors. He inspected the work to ensure it was done to my specifications. Michael made the entire process from analysis, to repairs, to closing straightforward and easy. We closed in 33 days at 97% of our asking price.
Lori McDonald ~ Roswell, GA (July 2016)
I hired Michael as my exclusive buyer's agent. He helped guide me through a selection of potential property acquisitions and the evaluation process for each. We did have some differences in approach on evaluating the properties, but in the end our two approaches melded into a successful plan for the acquisition of a property. As I hadn't acquired a property in over 25 years his guidance in the closing process was also invaluable. I would highly recommend him for assistance in acquiring a property as a buyer's agent.
Mike Blake ~ Tallahassee, FL (June 2016)
I recently purchased a lot on St. George Island. Michael met with me and discussed the pros and cons of various properties according to my needs and specifications. It was a complicated transaction due to some title issues. Michael spent a great deal of time working through the problems with the seller and their realtor. He was knowledgeable and professional throughout the process and took care of all the details. I highly recommend Michael to anyone looking for a realtor. He gives 100% to his clients regardless of the price of the property. A rare quality.
Cincy Stock ~ Tallahassee, FL / St. George Island, FL (May 2016)
Michael is the consummate professional, It took nearly two years to find a property that fit our needs / wants and Michael was there the whole time. Not only did he lead us through a successful sales cycle, but he also took the time to educate us with respect to the island's nuances and quirks one doesn't readily consider when buying a property not on the mainland. Lastly his attentiveness to our feedback helped two individual with their hearts set on owning a piece of St. George Island find the perfect venue. Without hesitation I would use Michael again and fully recommend his services to any potential buyer or seller.
Mr. & Mrs. Troy Fisher ~ St. George Island (November 2015)
I recently bought a house in charming Apalachicola. Michael, an Accredited Buyer's Representative, was the perfect Realtor for me. I was moving from another state and he handled all the details of the purchase for me. Knowing the area and who to contact for reputable assistance proved invaluable. He continues to provide assistance as the need arises, whether it be recommending a vet or a handiman. I feel blessed to have found such a professional and wonderful person to help me.
Judy MacFarland ~ Apalachicola, FL (April 2015)
Michael represented me when I bought a house in Apalachicola. He was very helpful when answering my questions about the purchase contract and closing documents. He returned my calls and text messages promptly. He was available whenever I had questions. If I need a Realtor again in Apalachicola I will call him. I know he was always truthful and working to get me the best deal possible.
Paula Martina ~ The Mane Salon and Day Spa, Apalachicola, FL (January 2015)
Michael contacted me after my listing with another agent expired. He helped me understand the market and what to expect from buyers. He surpassed my expectations of a Realtor. I knew he was always looking out for my best interest. He is down-to-earth and easy to work with. I also made a friend for life.
Peggy Brooks ~ Crawfordville, FL (October 2014)
Michael brought us a cash buyer for our lot in Cara Bay Estates on St. George Island. We closed eleven days after it went under contract. During the listing period Michael kept us regularly updated on the market, comparable sales, and our competition.
Terri and Harvey Heimann ~ New Port Richey, FL (May 2014)
Michael listed and sold my historic cottage in Apalachicola. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a professional Realtor that gets the job done.
Claudia McCann ~ St. Petersburg, FL (April 2014)
I was sufficiently fortunate to find Michael when I looked at listings in Apalachicola from afar. I sent out a flurry of inquiries and had an almost immediate response from him. He was knowledgeable, quick-witted and thorough in his preparations for my visit. He was also remarkably successful with his negotiation skills and got the house of my dreams for the price I wanted to pay.
I will continue to have an ongoing relationship with Michael as I value his perspective on many aspects. He is a genuine and reliable resource.
