Mike Francis – CEO, Selling and Buying Agent
Mike Francis has worn many hats over the years! From a father of 3 kids, to a Gulf War veteran, Mike's most interesting job was being a TV Meteorologist. He did the "TV Thing", as he likes to call it, for around 18 years in markets ranging from Little Rock, AR to right here in Atlanta at 11Alive. Somewhere in the mix he became a homebuilder and was successful at that until the crash of 2009 where he decided to stay put in TV. Now out of "The TV Gig" he gets to focus on helping people find or sell their beautiful home.
Tabitha Banners - Lead Selling and Buying Agent
As is true of many other Realtors®, real estate was not her first career. Tab has a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Florida State University and her professional background is in Mental Health.
During the beginning of her career, she worked in Community Mental Health providing assistive counseling and resource services to Medicaid based recipients. Most recently, she served as a Mental Health Case Manager aboard a Military Installation. Working with Marines and Sailors was an amazing opportunity. As the Case Manager for the team, she was able to give back to the families of those that are fighting for the health and well being of people's family everyday.
Now, I know you are asking yourself, “How did she end up in real estate?”
Well, her husband’s company relocated them to Orlando, FL.... Thus, she had to give up her position at the Naval Hospital. Although, she was sad to leave, she was very excited to move back home to Florida to be closer to her family. This relocation opened a new door of opportunity for Tab. Through the search for her own personal home she began to see that Real estate, much like mental health, provided the opportunity to work with new individuals on a daily basis helping them to achieve some of their life long dreams. After careful thought and consideration, she decided to do the 180-degree career change and slide right into the Realtor market. Thus, the journey began!
