5 STAR REALTOR BY JACKSONVILLE MAGAZINE
LEADING FL REAL ESTATE AGENTS BY REAL TRENDS MAGAZINE
SPECIALIZING IN THE NOCATEE COMMUNITIES & SURROUNDING AREAS
CERTIFIED NOCATEE SPECIALIST

I was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio where I attended Cincinnati Country Day School and the University of Cincinnati while majoring in accounting. I later raised my family on a farm near Batesville, Indiana for over ten years along with our horses, goats and Mastiff dogs...a great life.

I was once SVP of the Commercial Lending Division of a major Midwest bank and I have owned various businesses involved in travel, publishing and real estate development. My wife of 45 years and I have five children including our two biological daughters and three adopted foster sons. We have three granddaughters who also live in FL. My real estate experience includes the past ownership of one of the largest independent real estate companies in the country with nearly 900 agents located in Ohio. I have also sold real estate on the small island of Deer Isle, Maine in a two man real estate office. Thank you Dutch from Deer Isle Properties. I have sold real estate in Vermont with Lang McLaughry Spera the largest and best brokerage firm in VT and Northern New England.

The relocation of a family member brought us to the St. Augustine/Ponte Vedra area where we currently reside in Nocatee in Del Webb Ponte Vedra. History has taught me when I move to seek out the best full service firm in the marketplace so naturally I affiliated with the nationally recognized real estate firm of Watson Realty Corp. servicing Northeast Florida and Southern Georgia. Over the last 30 years in real estate I have sold farms, million dollar mansions, condominiums, large tracts of land, one mobile home and everything in between. I have been relocated, helped those who were being relocated, worked with many first time home buyers and several wishing to retire.

My skills start with being a good listener and finish with being a tireless advocate of my customers and clients desired real estate goals thru the closing and beyond. I hold the respected CDPE (Certified Distressed Property Expert) designation and the LMC (Loss Mitigation Certification) to assist my customers facing the challenges of short sales and foreclosures.

I have bought & sold a lot of Real Estate in my 71 years on earth. George Ballou II is by far "THE BEST REALTOR I HAVE EVER DEALT WITH." Honest, Professional, Can Do, Excellent Follow-Up, takes all the stress out of a transaction, from first contract, to closing! Watson is very fortunate to have George as an Agent! All this is saying a lot since I also have an active Florida Real Estate License, but choose to have George work my personal deals. "THANK YOU, George." Bill & Joanne

Bill & Joanne

George is a true Professional Salesman that follows up on all contacts to complete that sale. He advised us on preparing our property each time before a visit of interested prospects and let us know of the results of the visit. Our sale was quick and easy thanks to the Menton and Ballou Group.

George is the consummate professional. It was a pleasure working with him. From the first day we met, right through the day we closed the deal, he always delivered on what he said he would do, and more. Never an issue in any of my dealings with George. I look forward to working with him again. Sincerely, Thom E. Linek

George is the most professional, knowledgeable and friendliest agent my wife and I have ever experienced. Always updating the progress of the purchase and extremely reassuring.  If you have to contact George he immediately gets back to you. A fantastic experience. Five stars isn't enough.


 

John & Sally K.

We have worked with many real estate representatives over a period of 40+ years. George is without a doubt the most professional agent we have ever dealt with. He is fearless, strategically wise and honorable in his work with buyers and sellers. He gets the job done regardless of the current market conditions.

Karen and Charles Graham

Most of my experience with George has been long distance. I have been residing in Oracle, Az. since December 2014. He took excellent care of my property for the past year. He kept me well informed and was prompt in answering any questions I had. It was a pleasure dealing with George, and I would recommend him to anyone who wants to list their home with Watson Realty.

George ballou has provided the epitome of service in the real estate field. He has helped me with a rental. He has negotiated the purchase of a single family home in the 400k catagory for me.

Currently, he has helped me sell my single family home in only 16 days. He will hold your hand. He will take you through every step. His expertise in the real estate field is unsurpassed. George will take care of you. He makes sure every t is crossed and i is dotted. George knows his business inside and out. He is the most knowledgable and comprehensive real estate associate I have met in 40 years of renting, buying and selling.

I have been fortunate to have had George Ballou, II at my side in the sale of a home and the purchase of a new home both in January 2014. In my view he is THE BEST relator I have  worked with in the past 60 years of buying and selling homes. I consider George my security blanket on real estate transactions.

Working with George Ballou was uncomplicated.  He was both professional and personable; answered all my questions and explained the process in an easy to understand way.  In addition, his pricing evaluation of my home was spot on.  I highly recommend George Ballou to anyone looking for a place to live or a place to sell.

We absolutely love George and how he handled the sale of our property.  He was a gentlemen, a professional and a friend.   We would recommend him to anyone and if we should need a realtor in the future, we would certainly call him.
