Sandy is the reason I found my dream home! I was coming in from out of town with a short window to find a house that met my long list of criteria. Sandy was unbelievably generous with her time and when we weren’t having luck with the properties I requested to see, she helped change the search criteria to find exactly what I was looking for. Sandy was incredibly supportive every step of the process, from the search all the way to closing day, ensuring that the seller delivered on everything they promised. Sandy is extremely hard working, truly caring and an expert on all aspects of the job! Buying a home can be a grueling process, and I can’t imagine having gone through it with anyone else! Sandy is a rare find – everything I needed in a realtor and more, and I will recommend her to home buyers every chance I get!! J Beram


Sandy was great at handling the sale of my cabin. I’m an agent myself in Atlanta, but I wanted to use a local Blue Ridge agent that was able to negotiate on my behalf. She got me exactly what I wanted and was very easy to work with. S Bowes


Sandy assisted us with the purchase of our new construction dream mountain home! She consistently went above and beyond to keep us informed throughout the process and represented our interests as buyers skillfully. Sandy is professional, efficient, knowledgeable, and very personable. We cannot speak highly enough of her class and integrity. If you’re looking for a realtor, look no further! Thank you Sandy!!


Sandy was an amazing realtor. We live 10 hours away from Blue Ridge and often didn’t have much lead time as to when we could drive up. Sandy always created time to show us multiple homes. As we looked at each cabin , we modified what we wanted to buy, and Sandy never blinked an eye at our new requirements. She went back to the drawing board with each request and showed us properties each time that met those new desires. Sandy is friendly, funny, knows someone who does everything (blinds, propane, house watching, etc.) as well as is on great terms with other realtors and builders. The happy ending is that we found the PERFECT cabin! We are more than satisfied with Sandy as our realtor and our friend, and unconditionally recommend her. K Denlea


We call Sandy from a mailing she had sent us when we decided to sell our vacation home. We were impressed with the detailed market analysis she provided us the first time we met with her. Once we listed the property we received a full price offer in just 2 days on the market. She did a great job throughout the whole process. We knew no one in the area and were lucky to pick Sandy Wilbanks as our realtor. She is very knowledgeable of the area and helped us to ultimately buy our home here in the GA mountains. Don’t hesitate to give her a call. G Benner


I have never had a more knowledgeable and well-liked realtor in all of my real estate dealings. Everyone I spoke with knew and loved Sandy! She had so many connections in the community and she knew the housing market. My husband and I were in great hands – all through a contract that fell through and another opportunity a few months later that became our dream cabin in the mountains. L Lynch


Sandy did a great job selling our cabin. We will certainly get her help again.

B. Hawk

They say, the fewer the words the better. Sandy is the best of the best.

B & S Travers

Sandy did an excellent job marketing our property. She showed the added value and assets the property had and followed up with information to buyers quickly. She was available almost 24/7. We can highly recommend her.

P. Irvan

Sandy did an outstanding job marketing our house. As a second home, we expected it to take quite a while to sell. But with Sandy’s expertise and guidance, we sold in just over 4 months for above asking price. I highly recommend Sandy!

P. Sapitowicz

Sandy was a real pleasure to work with as she is friendly, knowledgeable, hard-working, and always called me back in a short period of time. She knows the real estate market in the Blue Ridge, GA area extremely well. I highly recommend her if you are looking for a real estate agent.

J. Magu

From the moment Sandy arrived with a full marketing analysis and area comps for our home, to the detailed marketing plan she employs for keeping your home in front of buyers, we knew she would do a good job for us. A professional photographer took wonderfully complete pictures of our home, and the listing she created showcased the uniqueness of our property – which was designed to appeal to our specific target market. Sandy is also very knowledgeable about negotiating a strong deal for the property owner. She knew exactly what we should and should not agree to – invaluable! Of course, she was so easy to work with, and entirely genuine. We could not have made a better choice!

B. Cotter

Sandy and her assistant Richard assisted me in my purchase in Cherry Log, GA. I must say – they were right on it!! Living in another state, Richard immediately viewed the property for me. Sandy went out of her way to get our offer in. I was amazed how quickly they worked, I might add – I did not have the same experience with other realtors in the area. They answered any and all of my concerns immediately. Sandy made sure the closely went smoothly. She went above and beyond! I would highly recommend their services!

N. Vandgrifft

Sandy will successfully guide you through the entire real estate process, whether buying or selling. Her knowledge and expertise of local pricing trends, will guarantee the best market results for both parties! We’ve purchased and sold a cabin listed by Sandy–she’s the best!

Kathy & John Brooks

Sandy was wonderful to work with. She was very patient through a tough financing process. She helped us with a lot of valuable information and advice about the area. Being introduced to local contractors, support is very important when buying a vacation home in an area you are not very familiar with.

Clyde Tillman

Sandy did a great job selling our house, after she took over the listing we had a great contract within a week. She was honest and gave us good advise on pricing and negotiated well on our behave. Sandy responded to our questions in a timely matter. I really liked that she would call you back instead of just sending a text or email. Our property was unique for Blue Ridge because of restrictions on no weekend renters. Her marketing was targeted to groups that were looking for that kind of property.

John Schickinger

Sandy & Richard are the perfect team for all of your real estate needs! Buying or selling, they’ll get the job done! They are always prompt and courteous, and will accommodate any schedule to bring folks closer toward a sale! They’re the best

Kathy & John Brooks

Sandy is very experienced and professional. She navigated our rather complex deal smoothly through to closing, despite a couple road blocks that could have killed the deal. I recommend her strongly to anyone in this market.


Sandy was great to work with. She showed us numerous homes over several weekends and was always available for us. She also helped with inspections and scheduling utility changeovers and was always willing to meet them at the house since we were 5 hours away. I would not hesitate to use her again in the future.

Buck Chambers

Extremely easy to work with, knowledgeable, provides appropriate and valuable advice in a timely manner. Outstanding responsiveness, highly professional. Highly recommended.

Imad El Kebbi

Sandy and Richard have a solid network to refer you to for any of your real estate buying needs. We found that invaluable. Richard answered our inquires and got us in the homes we were interested in as well as one that he felt had possibilities. He was always available throughout the buying process and answered all our questions. He sent us reminders to keep us on track during the final steps. He negotiated a few extras for us that we really appreciated. It was a good experience and we’re happy we called them.

Cate Dollar

Sandy has extensive knowledge of the local market and was quick to follow up on any questions I had. I was an out-of-State owner but could totally rely on Sandy to keep a close eye on my property. If repair issues occurred she brought in experienced help at a reasonable price. I couldn’t have asked for better service during a very stressful time of my life.


Sandy is a straight up no nonsense, honest and the most willing to go above and beyond for her clients. Sandy is awesome, we told her what we wanted and she never showed us anything less. Sandy above all is very understanding and very patient. I had begun to lower my standards on a cabin and she said “No, that’s not what you want we will keep looking.” We spent almost a year and we finally closed on a cabin in November 2017. We always kept in contact on a weekly basis, she is very knowledgeable about cabin living and Georgia. She answered our questions, took the time to spend with us, we always had her undivided attention and would always be respectful. Sandy is wonderful and I can’t wait to move to Georgia.

Nellie Freman

Sandy was awesome to deal with and a true professional. She knows the market extremely well, helped me navigate the entire selling process and kept me informed from beginning to end. I would highly recommend Sandy to anyone looking to hire a real estate agent.

Patrick Farrell

I thoroughly enjoyed working with Sandy. She is very friendly and knowledgeable and always replied within hours of any request I made. I especially like her no-nonsense style – too many real estate agents want to be your best friend and bury you in idle chit chat. Sandy gets right to the issue and is quick to provide a simple response.

Barb Halaburt

We were seeking a single family fulltime home in Blue Ridge. Sandy’s understanding of what requirements we had together with her thorough knowledge of the area made it much easier than we had ever dreamed. She was always available to answer any questions and help with the entire purchasing process. She is highly professional and very honest in every aspect. I would not hesitate to recommend Sandy to anyone seeking to make a home/cabin purchase in the Blue Ridge Area.

Karen Moore

Sandy is one of the best realtors we’ve ever worked with! We moved from out of state and Sandy made what could have been a VERY stressful experience a lot easier for us. She was friendly, honest, knowledgable and professional and she stayed that way throughout the entire process. I don’t know what we would have done without her!

Chrisitna and Devin Sielschott

This was an investment purchase, therefore a want and not a need. From the beginning Sandy understood this would be a very precise and well researched purchase on our part; yet always kept us reassured that when we would find “the one”, we would know.

She was right; over the course of 3 months we reviewed several listings and visited in person some 45 properties finally finding “the one”. Sandy knew our wants and needs, sometimes better than us, often suggesting “NO, let’s keep looking”, even when we thought we had found it.

What impressed us most about working with Sandy was her always prompt availability and concern for our interests during the shopping, negotiating and due-diligence process ahead of closing; always making us feel as if we were her only clients, while knowing fully well that we weren’t. So to anyone looking for properties in the Blue Ridge, Georgia area, you would do yourself a great service by reaching out to Sandy Wilbanks for your real estate needs.

Manny Mignatti

Sandy’s presentation and marketing of our property was exceptional and resulted in a relatively quick sale. Her advice on asking price was right on the money. What we respected most was her no-pressure attitude towards us to accept offers with which we were not totally happy. I’d recommend her as I have recommended her, to anyone seeking to sell their property in the area.

Ed Tecza

Sandy never gave up on what proved to be a very complex deal.  We were so happy to have her there to helpful get to the finish line.  She was super responsive and always there when we needed her.  Would love to work with her again some day. Thanks Sandy!

Barbara Blue

Sandy was the biggest help to us during this whole process! Not only did she show us houses but she provided us with information for the area and guided us with her expertise so we were able to find exactly what we wanted. She always returned our calls and was patient and caring! I consider her our first friend in the Blue Ridge area!

Jim & Hope Cox

Sandy was VERY helpful and knowledgeable about proper pricing and marketing of my cabin home in the Aska Adventure Area of Blue Ridge – WOW – had a contract in 1 day – with multiple backup offers! She made the selling process stress free and smooth. I would highly recommend Sandy and would definitely use her again.

Tom Watson

Sandy is very professional. She sold our property quickly and was very easy to work with. I would definitely recommend her to a friend. Give her a call if you are selling in the Blue Ridge area.

Alan & GiGi Conner

I recently used Sandy to sell our cabin in Morganton, Ga. She is a highly experienced Realtor who demonstrated in-depth knowledge of the area and what it takes to quickly sell a property. She is very much the professional who uses an aggressive approach to marketing. Throughout the process I was keep informed on status and next steps. We had a contract and closed within weeks after placing the cabin on the market. If you are looking for a Realtor in the Blue Ridge/Blairsville area of North Georgia, I highly recommend Sandy. She is a pleasure to work with.

Gary Jones

Yes. We’re ‘Sold on Sandy.’ We interviewed several local agents and when we met Sandy, we just knew she was the one we’d hire. Sandy makes the selling process so comfortable. She knows the Blue Ridge area, what’s selling and for how much, and knows how to price a home to sell. Our cabin had a contract in about a week.

If you’re looking for an agent that is not only friendly and knowledgeable, but truly honest and professional, then Sandy is your lady. But fair warning … you will probably gain a new friend for life. She’s #1 in our book!

Alana & Bob Folsom

Sandy did a terrific job of marketing our cabin! It sold in less than 90 days. She gave us excellent advice regarding a time frame for listing it and on price. She is quite pleasant, and we felt we were working with a friend the entire time. We would highly recommend Sandy.

As we were living in Texas during the time of the listing, she was most willing to help with those things
we might have handled ourselves had we been closer by. We were especially grateful. She gets an A++ from us!

Ken and Ann Patla

Sandy is the best realtor we’ve ever met. She found the perfect cabin for my husband and I. Very friendly, super sweet, and knows her way around:) We have been in our cabin for 3 years and she is still available when I have questions. Thank You Sandy!!

Joele Carr Davis

Dear Sandy, I would like to thank you so much for all the hard work and effort you put into the sale of my cabin in Blue Ridge this year. I would certainly recommend your services for anyone looking to list or buy a home. Although some very difficult problems arose before the closing, your follow through on every detail kept the sale on track. Thank you for all your support and help during a difficult period for me. It was a pleasure to work with you.

Barbara Bottone

Sandy is a true professional who will get the job done quickly and correctly! The first contact we had with her was very straight forward and we knew she had our best interests at heart. From the moment we met with her, she was professional, hard working and demonstrated close attention to detail. Sandy got our property ready to look THE BEST, as soon as it was listed. She had all the contacts necessary for success – landscapers, cleaning crew and hot tub specialist. Sandy knows the area, knows the market and is very trustworthy. If you want to sell or buy, Sandy is the best!

Shannon Kanner Jackson

Sandy, Thank you so much for all your help and hard work. This was, without a doubt, the most enjoyable home buying experience we have ever had.

Tom and Bren Burkett

Buying a home can be an overwhelming thing to do.  From finding the right location to affording it, from negotiating the deal to navigating the perfect fit.  It’s personal. It’s stressful.  And Sandy couldn’t have made it easier.  From the very start, I felt like I was her only client and that my needs always topped her list.  She has an incredible instinct for location, layout and view.  And, she has the commitment and experience to back it all up.  I was in great hands.   The result?  The perfect house for me. Couldn’t be happier…and couldn’t recommend Sandy strongly enough.

Kathryn Harris

Couldn’t have done any of this without your help with step one. “The Cabin.”

Kim and I want to thank you again for your help and your friendship and to let you know that after dealing with other realtors … You are the best. Thanks Sandy

Larry and Kim Sharkey

Sandy did an outstanding job listing and marketing our log cabin in Cherry Log. Sandy’s attention to detail and customer focus was top notch. She is the consummate professional, readily available to answer all our questions – maintaining a positive presence from start through closing. She was thorough and did a great job of keeping us updated. We are extremely pleased and would not hesitate to recommend Sandy Wilbanks to anyone looking to buy or sell their “retreat” in the mountains.

Robert and Sheryl Yancheson

We began looking for a north Georgia property with Sandy about two years ago. Wanting to do a 1031B exchange, we had to sell our property in California first. This required a great deal of patience on Sandy’s part.

All the while, she was pleasant, helpful, and kept us up-to-date on the current market. She proved to be extremely knowledgeable of the market in the Blue Ridge, Ellijay, and Blairsville areas. She sent us property listings she thought would interest us and was always available to answer questions. When we finally sold, she was quick to help us locate our replacement property, an attorney, title company and inspector. She was knowledgeable of the paperwork requirements for the exchange and the closing went flawlessly. Since we were unavailable, she even did the walk-through for us.

Anyone needing a pleasant, expert who will work tirelessly for the them could not find a better agent than Sandy Wilbanks.

Ken Krause

I’m a real estate agent in Atlanta. From time to time, I will run into someone in Atlanta looking to purchase a second home in the Blue Ridge area. While in Blue Ridge one summer, I met Sandy through a mutual friend. I knew at once that I was speaking with someone trustworthy and dependable. I also knew at once that I would refer any business I had to her. She is professional, smart, follows through on what she says she will, and is someone I completely trust to take care of my clients looking in the North Georgia area.

Carlson Collier, Realtor with Keller-Wilson Realty

I have had the priveledge of performing a few inspections for Sandy and it has been a pleasure working with her. From a home inspector’s perspective she is very easy to work with. She understands the process and knows what it takes to satisfy her customer’s needs and expectations.

Keith Jensen, President, Southern Premier Home Inspections, Inc & Home Energy Shield

I have known Sandy since High School (and that’s a long time). We also worked together at Delta – she a Flight Attendant, I, a Flight Attendant Scheduler. One thing a person needs to be a great F/A is a great personality… and Sandy oozes great personality.

My wife and I worked with Sandy to find a permanent home in Blue Ridge, GA. Sandy worked tirelessly with us for over 4 months to find the perfect home. She’s a great gal, a great person, a great real estate agent, and a great friend. If you choose to work with Sandy for your real estate needs, I believe you will be totally satisfied and will probably make a friend for life at the same time.

Richard Arnold

During our quest for the perfect mountain house in Blue Ridge Ga my wife and I hired Sandy and she didn’t dissapoint. For over a month we looked at 70+ houses until we found what we were looking for. Sandy stuck by us and took a genuine interest in helping us find the right house. She was very organized in putting our viewing schedule together as well as coordinating with the seller and sellers agent. She never once put her personal time ahead or our schedule even though we could only look at property on the weekends. Also, her personality is a perfect fit for the real estate industry because she get’s along with everyone. We immediately liked Sandy from a professional as well as personal stand point. If the need arises we will use Sandy’s expertise again. I would highly recommend Sandy for any of your Real Estate needs.

Todd Plunkett

We have been incredibly happy with Sandy’s work representing us at Coldwell Banker. She has worked diligently and tirelessly to help us sell our second home and done a great job. Additionally, Sandy is very responsive to any and all request we have made of her plus she is very considerate and thoughtful of our time. I would highly recommend her if you are trying to sell or buy real estate. She is a true professional!!

Terry Tomasello

When my wife and I began our property search in the Blue Ridge Ellijay area, we had only visited there once and really didn’t know anything about the area. You not only took the time to guide us through the area as well as worked daily in locating the perfect property for us. You never showed any signs of being tired of endless questions.

I am a real estate broker in another state with 30+ years of experience and have dealt with many sales folks during my years. I have purchased many properties over those years for my own account but I have never dealt with anyone that I found to be as professional and caring as I found you to be. We set up a difficult set of needs in our search and you found us a number of properties that could have worked for us. You kept looking until you hit the jackpot with the one we wanted.

Your attention to the details of home inspections and property repairs was outstanding as we live 7 hours away. You are the best; a true professional, one that is dedicated to providing only the best real estate services to your clients. You are MY realtor and now my friend. Thanks for a great job on our behalf.

Gregg and Mary Smith
