This is the third real estate transaction that we have with Gene. He has consistently worked diligently on our behalf each time. Since we are not local to the Panama City Beach area we have to rely on his expertise and knowledge of the area to ensure a smooth and seamless transaction. We had 9 offers on the latest transaction and Gene gave us great advice in choosing the best offer for us. It resulted in a strong sale that closed within minimal days after listing. Gene is amazing to work with and we highly recommend him and his team.

Gene is the best of the best! Gene is honest, dependable and trustworthy...a genuinely great person. We have done several deals with him both buying and selling over the past 9 years. He always EXCEEDS our expectation of the terms we did or get! Gene is the best agent we have ever worked with. We recently sold a condo with him and he got us the highest sales price in the complex with excellent terms and just days on market. He is very skilled at negotiating and goes above and beyond for his clients. His knowledge of the market and Real Estate is top notch! He keeps you well informed throughout the entire process making it so easy. We highly recommend him to help you buy or sell.


I can't speak highly enough of Gene! Gene was the best realtor we could have hoped for! He is an absolute pleasure to work with. Gene is knowledgeable and knows the market very well. He helped us set the right price where we got multiple offers within few hours, while still leaving no money on the table. We needed a cash offer and Gene used his connections and contacts to get us the cash offer which was well above listing price! Gene did it all with so much professionalism, grace, and care. We feel blessed that Gene was our realtor - he made the entire process from listing to closing so easy for us. I would highly recommend Gene to all sellers and buyers in the Panama City Beach area.

It is even hard for us to describe how good Gene is, we bought our condo with him, we sold our condo with him, and what is amazing about Gene is he told us that he would get it sold. He sold our Condo in literally 2 hours for a very high price and it never went on the market either. There are just no words to describe his real estate abilities, so highly recommended!!


Gene and Jennifer went above and beyond helping us find a home. He was amazing locating properties, and video walk throughs. They had some referrals for a management company for our unit. I don't have a negative thing to say about the experience.


Gene has gone aboard beyond expectations. He has been on top of all our requests even before they become a request. His professionalism, timeliness and dedication to his customer is beyond approach. Gene has made our buying experience both pleasurable and rewarding. Always available and accommodating. A 6 Star realtor!!!!!

I have made 8 real estate purchases in my life. There is ONE REALTOR who was head and shoulders above them all...MIKE RYLEE. Usually once the transaction is done and the agent has their commission in hand, you part ways and never communicate to one another again until the next time. Since I closed, Mike has loaned me tools, hand delivered letters to my renters for me, taken me and my family to dinner and even stopped by on a day when my wife and I were painting so he could bring my Kids his favorite donuts. I’ve never known anyone quite like Mike. I wouldn’t use anyone else. Period!

Mike Rylee made buying my first condo a fun and exciting experience! Mike handled everything from start to finish and even offered a helping hand after closing. I couldn't be happier!!! Mike knows the business and the area inside and out, and he will guide you through every stage of the process. He knows how to get the deal done! When I'm ready to buy again Mike Rylee will be the only agent I will use!

When my husband and I decided on Panama City for our vacation home, we contacted Mike Rylee. From the beginning, we knew we’d found a realtor who was interested in our likes and preferable location. We didn’t have to look far, and found the perfect home. Mike is very professional and a very friendly guy! Highly recommended by us!!

My husband and I were interested in viewing some listings at The Summit. We went to the office to ask who we needed to get in touch with and Mike Rylee was in the office. He showed us multiple listings. He never pressured us to buy. He gave us good advice. We’ve bought two condos through him. He’s been very helpful ever since.

—Cindy Smith Geiger

We met Mike Rylee in February to look at a few condos in St. Andrews and immediately liked how low pressure and fun he is. He knows a lot about the Panama City Beach area and I like the way he communicates with both buyers and sellers. Mike helped us find and buy a condo in less than a month! I would definitely use Mike again and recommend him to anyone looking to buy in the Panama City Beach area.

I have completed well over 100 transactions with Bill Thomas over the past 8 years. He has handled each and everyone one professionally and provided me accurate information when needed to make a business decision. He is my boots on the ground for Panama City Beach and I look forward to a continued long-term relationship.

Pam and I went to Panama City to look at other condo which we did not purchase and you know we walked into your office to ask if you could guide us in right direction to purchase a condo, not only were you knowledgeable about the area, you showed us several units which fit our needs. We purchase the unit on the spot and that's when the service started. Your team took great care of us and make the experience stress free. I have no need to contact anyone else for our future sales or purchases. Thanks again for all you have done to help us. I would also like to thank you for after the sale service, I have had dealings in past where after sales the service stops, this is not the case with your firm.

Erica West & Virginia Thomas exceeded all of our expectations. They helped us to find exactly what we were looking for. In addition, they patiently toured several units with us and answered every question we had. Erica & Virginia went above and beyond to help us make our vacation home perfect. What began as a business relationship blossomed into a friendship. I highly recommend Erica & Virginia to anyone looking for a home at the beach.

—Nathan & Michelle Allen

My wife and I began looking at possible condos along the Florida Gulf beaches in the fall of 2015. We connected with Virginia and Erica at Laketown Wharf. Their professionalism and attention to detail won us over. We never felt pressured in the process and were always treated with respect. They made the process of purchasing the condo extremely easy, and we are very thankful to them.
