Michael Jones


Oil-Field Service, Tournament Fisherman, Developer, Realtor – with eclectic interests in music, T.V. series, books and dining.

Georgia Tech grad—  MS in Industrial Systems Engineering…. I.E. Honorary Society, Treasurer

Alpha Tau Omega – social fraternity.

From New Orleans base [1980 – 1990] — Founded several offshore service industry companies…largest was Golden Gulf Offshore…with nearly two dozen vessels ranging from 110-foot crew boats to 180-foot supply boats…. sold a collection of offshore vessels to ENSCO [NYSE] in 1988 – these became the heart of that company’s oil field supply business -now ranking among the top three USA operators.

With significant proceeds from boat sale, semi-retired for a few years, purchasing a slightly used but totally marvelous  Hatteras Sport Fisherman and proceeded to learn the art of  Marlin fishing – both in the Gulf as well as the Bahamas and the Caribbean…as an aside, this was perfect preparation for high end condo sales, i.e. 100’s of hours awaiting the “big one” and then the joy hooking up, or perhaps more often the agony of losing the beauty to any number of negatives that can and will crop up to deprive you of a successful catch/sale. The way of life.

Moved to beach home in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida in 1990… Founded JMJ Realty Services in 1992 to sell condos we developed with invaluable assist from son, Justin – also a Tech man…We completed three high  end condos: The Ultimate in Destin -1996, and The Princess in PCB – 2001, then back to Destin for Harbor Lights- 2007. Regardless of the roller-coaster nature of this industry, these three remain today as “best of class” in their respective areas – this gleaned from the write-ups of Realtors handling resales therein, along with a confessed personal bias. W.C.Fields says:  “if’n it’s true, it ain’t bragging.”  I’ll stick with that.

Testimonials

Knowing RE agents as I do, I started out with a fictitious name but soon realized that I was dealing with a professional and I could divulge my true identity without fear of being bombarded with useless information.  Michael J listened to my desires and showed me only what I was interested in without the hard sell.  After numerous showings I settled on a condo. His perseverance was needed through the long and arduous negotiations to finally arrive at a closing. His knowledge of the market is remarkable and his willingness to go the extra mile was appreciated.       Michael Z., esq. GA


I think Michael Jones did a fine job with my real estate needs of buying and selling condos in PCB.  He is very knowledge, approachable and empathetic with my questions and concerns.  I would recommend him highly for anyone’s real estate needs in PCB.       Vinit P., M.D.    Signal Mountain, TN


It was a pleasure to meet Michael almost five years ago when we first purchased our first condo at Sterling Breeze. We have enjoyed our condo along with family and friends. Since our purchase we have continued to stay in touch and purchased and sold another condo in Sterling Breeze and we are currently looking at the possibility of buying another condo! You certainly have represented us professionally and effectively. We would not consider using another real estate agent. You are a good friend!   Larry and Glenda W., Tennessee


I have been involved in many real estate transactions in my lifetime.  The purchasing experience I had with Michael Jones is like no other.  His openness, honesty, knowledge, and proficiency was nothing short of refreshing.  I am confident you will get this same impression quickly the first time you interact with Michael.  Don’t worry – he will be consistent during each interaction thereafter.  I would go further to say that if not for Michael’s demeanor I probably would have not made the purchase.  He gave me the confidence I needed to know the deal was right.  Mike F., Indianapolis


Consider using Michael Jones for your realtor needs!  Michael helped us find our dream condo at Sterling BREEZE and manage a deal while we were vacationing out of town so we wouldn’t miss out.  He understood our needs and financial ability and worked hard to stay in this framework.  He is very knowledgeable of the area and all the building and construction crews who worked on the units but most importantly he is responsive and caring.  I will be sending referrals!!!  Tracie W., Columbus, Georgia


Focused, detail oriented and very knowledgeable – Michael got the job done and sold our condo!  Very pleasant transaction.  Gene and Nancy M., Ann Arbor, Michigan


The unit I purchased – sight unseen – based on Michael’s recommendation alone, was far superior to any other that I saw.  Further, the closing occurred quickly and smoothly. …he provided a great favor and professional service for us. He is far superior to any of the Realtors with whom I’ve dealt over the past fifty-one years. Without reservation, I’d recommend Michael to anyone and everyone – including family.  Kelly S., Tulsa, Oklahoma.


We were most impressed with Michael’s commitment and attitude throughout. You went out and beyond in helping us deal with our locker contents {post-closing}.  This was extremely helpful as we were from out of country and it would have meant an extra trip down for us.  Working with you and the process was an enjoyable and positive experience.  We would not hesitate to recommend you to any of your potential clients. Warren and Del H., Toronto, Canada
