After earning his business degree in college, Billy Durham decided to move to North Carolina, starting his 19-year career in real estate. His successful sales record caught the eye of a new home builder who offered Billy a management position traveling North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia, troubleshooting locations that weren’t achieving high profits. He provided information about the local markets, identified potential sales agents to hire and sold homes while he was in the temporary location. In time, he wanted a break from his constant travel and fast-paced corporate life. He found Landmark 24, where he has spent the last 7 years. “Landmark is a family environment. Working with everyone day in and day out is personal.” Billy has continued his record of strong sales, each year always finishing in the top five sales professionals. He credits his love for getting along with people and respect for the client, “I’m going to treat them like I would want to be treated.” Billy still maintains active real estate licenses in the three states that he served while traveling, able to offer the best in assistance for relocation in the southeast.
As a Green Certified Specialist, Billy praises the energy efficiency of the Landmark 24 homes. From the products used in the house - windows, insulation and doors - to the pressure testing that results in a rating of tightness done on every home, he sees the value in comfort, lower energy bills and an improvement in healthy living conditions. Billy’s clients often come back to him when it is time to move, and reselling an energy-efficient home can result in higher return for that homeowner.
When asked about the Savannah lifestyle, Billy always recommends the coastal activities that surround the area. Growing up in the waterways taught him to value access to the natural beauty of the marshes and wetlands. Life in Pooler makes all of Savannah and the surrounding communities convenient to his location. Now that his two boys are mostly grown - one graduating college and the other stationed in the Army at Fort Benning - he spends a great deal of time outside, hunting and fishing. He especially appreciates that in our Lowcountry area, he can fish year-round, often escaping to a spot in St. Helena Island for his well-deserved downtime or traveling to see fishing friends back in North Carolina.
Billy often collaborates with outside realty firms and has established wonderful working relationships with the Savannah realty community. He makes a priority to safeguard their customers, answering questions and keeping agents in the loop. With Billy’s extensive real estate experience, he is a remarkable source of information about Landmark 24’s homes.
