Hard-working, honest, knowledgeable. All of these describe my experience with Michael. Michael is not on island time! He has the relationships with those "Who Are" and manages those connections to get the deal done. It was an all-around smooth transaction and he provided updates without request. Notice to all buyers and sellers...you need eyes and ears on the ground. Michael fits the bill and is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Michael, my sincere thank you!

We have been traveling to SGI for 20 years and have long dreamed of having a home on the island. Michael worked hard to make our dream come true! He listened to our needs and found the perfect house for us, and then held our hands through the entire process. From our initial discussions with him prior to beginning our home search, to the post-closing communications, he has been a blessing. We live 700 miles away and relied heavily on Michael to handle the leg work for us and to get us in touch with qualified, reliable, professional individuals during the buying process. He was always available and proactive in keeping everything on track and putting our best interests first. His honesty, integrity, and high standard of personal service made the experience simply AMAZING! He exceeds all expectations and we highly recommend him.

I’m not certain how impressive it would be for me to say that my dealings with Michael Billings were fun ----- but they were fun! I’m sure it was partly because I was getting what I wanted, easier than I could have imagined, but the man was super, and made the entire transaction a pleasure! He definitely knew what he was doing, what I wanted, and what I needed done. His advice was consistently on the nose, and there was never a question or doubt about how this deal was progressing. He made this transaction easy for us, and I cannot recommend him enough! This man knows what he’s doing, and he knows how to do it! Thank you, Michael

Michael displayed admirable professionalism, diligence, patience and persistence in selling my home. Though it took over 2 years to find the right buyer, my desire to maximize the selling price seemed to be the main obstacle. After numerous price drops as well as Michael investing his own money in marketing strategies, we finally got to a point the market would bear. He was also able to recommend a reputable A/C contractor from Crawfordville when local companies failed to respond to my needs. I would highly recommend Michael to anyone buying or selling a property and would certainly use his services myself should the need arise.

Michael went above and beyond and far exceeded my expectations. Michael took care of the transaction with professionalism and demonstrated superior customer service. I recommend Mr. Billings to anyone needing to sell their property.
John Pizzelli ~ Stoughton, Massachusetts (March 2019)
Can we give stars to realtors? If we could, Michael would get the max! He showed us several homes in Apalachicola. As a knowledgeable professional, he guided us through the buying process and helped ensure our rights were protected. Michael provided us with updates from the time our properties (a home and a vacant lot) were under contract until the sales closed. He put us in touch with qualified contractors who performed various tasks during the inspection period. As we live out of town Michael has continued after the sales closed to assist us with our property. We really appreciate Michael's cheerful and helpful attitude.

I could not have found a better realtor than Michael Billings to sell my St. George Island lot. He knew what my goals were, is technologically savvy, and knows how to get things done quickly. He offered excellent advice, always responded promptly to my questions, helped me make informed decisions, and is a lot of fun to work with. Hands down, he is the best realtor I've ever had.
Heidi Baird ~ Roanoke, Virginia (December 2018)
Michael found a qualified cash buyer for my property within 12 hours. He had my property under contract less than 24 hours later. He supervised the closing process, kept me updated, and got the deal closed 8 days after putting it under contract. He did exactly what he told me he would do.
Neil Murray ~ Rockmart, GA (August 2018)
We lived in Apalachicola for 27 years. We know every Realtor in town and they know us. We hired Michael because he stands out from the rest. He listed and sold our house in 83 days. He got our price and we couldn’t be happier.
He guided us through the sale and closing process without a hitch. We recommend him to anyone looking for a hard working Realtor.
Billy and Elizabeth Cook ~ Apalachicola, FL (May 2018)
My husband and I have bought and sold real estate, both residential, business and commercial since 1969, and have moved our primary residences 15 times.
We have worked with many real estate agents over these 48 years. Michael Billings is one of the most professional and personable realtors we have met. His in-depth understanding and research of his market, coupled with his keen sense of listening and hearing his customer's needs, led to showings which were targeted specifically to our preferences. This made 3 days of seeing over 20 homes and lots a pleasant and productive use of time. Michael is a pleasure to spend time with; pleasant, easy going, patient and no pressure.
Tony & Judy Savastano ~ Tampa, FL (December 2017)
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.
Melody Ellis ~ Leesburg, GA (June 2017)
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.
Mr. & Mrs. Abraham ~ Atlanta, GA (March 2017)
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!!!
