Buying a home is often the single largest financial obligation that you will engage in. In Georgia, AGENTS handle every aspect of the transaction; including negotiating, writing and managing the contract. The only attorney involved is at the closing – and they represent the lender. Despite this, most people spend about as much time researching their agent as they do a restaurant to visit or movie to see. 85% of agents cannot live off their earnings; half leave the business before their second year. Do you want one of these hacks representing you? Of course not.

It starts with a definition of success
What constitutes success? We make you think; describe the home that you would buy right now. Where is it…what does it look like…how much does it cost…can you clearly describe it? The more we know about what you want the better the chance that we can find it before someone else does. Success also means understanding loan options; we have a group of loan reps that our past buyers have love. They answer questions, offer suggestions and take the anxiety out of the mortgage process.How to confidently purchase a home
The internet and technology save time
We leverage technology for you. You get highly specific emails targeting your desired area, the same ones agents get. You see homes when they hit the market, a huge edge in a highly competitive market. We desk top review EVERY home before going out; we look for problems to avoid. We review prices, value trends, listing history and even the other agent and use this to evaluate the home. Our appraisal resources are key here; we don’t waste time looking at homes that don’t pass the desk review. You’ll see everything we see and have it explained.Work smarter, not harder to find that home
It comes down to numbers
To us every home purchase is a math problem; does the data support it and does this home make sense for you to buy? Every opportunity balances “indicated value” with “value in use”; how does this home work for you? While at the home we look for issues; condition, quality, known material deficiencies, external issues, the lot, drainage, the floor plan, location in the community…and many more things 30+ years of walking homes with a critical eye develops. We’ll keep things in context but we have no problem telling you not to buy a home.See how data for your next home is analyzed
Contract writing and management expertise
In GA, agents represent home buyers from hello to closing. Do you want one of those 85% of hacks writing and managing your contract? We write hundreds of contracts a year, counsel and review hundreds of others. Words matter; ensuring the proper clauses and stipulations are present is critical. Managing the contract through negotiation, inspection, appraisal, financing…everything is easy and boring until something is missed due to inexperience, inattentiveness and mismanagement. When things go wrong in real estate, they tend to be very big, very expensive and very unsettling.Make certain to ask these 7 questions

Here's What Hank's Clients Have to Say...View Hank’s Zillow Reviews
Hank Miller is hands down, the best agent we have ever worked with (and we’ve worked with many over the years). Not only were we looking for our next house, but we were moving from NY to Georgia with school aged kids. Therefore, we needed an agent who could quickly help educate us on neighborhoods that fit our needs/wants, be flexible and responsive to visiting GA on a moment’s notice to house hunt, and be our eyes and ears on the ground while we were still in NY. We are so thankful and appreciative of his efforts, honesty and knowledge of everything real estate. You won’t find a harder working, more knowledgeable agent that you’ll actually enjoy working with.
Hank did an excellent job for us in buying our new home in Milton, GA. Having been in the real estate industry for over 35 years, I can honestly say that Hank is the best residential real estate professional I have ever worked with. I would recommend him to others without reservation. He has excellent communication skills and market knowledge. Being new to the area, I came to rely heavily on his advice and guidance thoughout the purchase process. His post closing followup was superb.
I worked with Hank on buying a house in a small targeted area. Hank was very patient and professional. His appraisal “lense” and background was critical when we focused our search on several specific properties. I was so impressed with his skills we also used him for the sale of our current house. He and his team did a fantastic job marketing and supporting the negotiations of the sale. He is one of the best agents I have worked with and would definitely work with him in the future.
We thought hank was the best real estate agent that we’ve worked with. His approach of “full disclosure” was unlike anything we’ve seen, at no point did he push to just complete a sale. We were very pleased with his methodical approach to isolating the homes that worked for us. He is very conservative – almost negative – when he walks a home. As he said, he is looking for potential issues that we might miss. We knew that when Hank said “this is a good one” that is was both in terms of price and appeal. We have no reservations about the home that we sold or the new one that we’ve purchased. Hank is a fantastic and conscientious agent.
