We have been in business since 2001 and have many happy clients. Don’t just believe us – Read what they have to say about us:
Sheila was excellent in every way. We had a very complex property and she was very proactive in helping us get to a closing. I can not express my appreciation for her work ethic and professional manner enough. I highly recommend her and her team for anyone looking to sell or buy on Lake Lanier.
Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value

Sheila Davis was great. She helped us sell our home in a short time. She went out of her way to make us comfortable with the process and help to make the sale go through. We highly recommend her, especially for lake property.
Susan B. June 2, 2020
Shelia was amazing to work our from start to finish. She is very knowledgeable about Lake Lanier and was always quickly available to answer any questions. We also had to delay closing two times because of our lender, and she made sure the seller understood why and always made it a smooth transition. We will use Shelia in the future to sell or buy a home and highly recommend her and her very qualified staff. Buyer of a luxury home on Lake Lanier.

Sheila and her team were great to work with, and it very easy to list and sell my home. She was very prepared with comps, and brought a great deal of professionalism to the process. Best yet, my home sold in a few days for a price we were very happy with! I'd recommend Sheila's services without hesitation! Seller of a Lake Lanier home in Dawsonville
Tim H. December 17, 2019
Sheila is truly the best in the business. You won’t find anyone else that has the experience and hard work that Sheila brings to the table. Sheila represented the seller when I was buying a large home on Lake Lanier, in the future I will be using Sheila. She is always available, she can take a stressful situation and make it calm, and she is very transparent. A class act through and though! Purchased a Luxury Lake Lanier home in Flowery Branch

Michelle and Sheila were very thorough and kept us informed from list to closing! I would highly recommend them! Sold a Lake Lanier home.

Are you looking for someone honest? Someone who will bend over backwards to find you the house of your dreams? Someone who will never judge your crazy because, let's be honest...house buying is quite possibly the most crazy thing any of us will ever do and it will bring out a side of you even YOU won't recognize? Then look no further than Michelle Sparks w/the Sheila Davis Group! My husband and I happened to be out for a Saturday scouting trip, thinking in the next few years we'd like to move "towards the lake". Fast forward 3 short months...a random phone call on a Saturday morning linking us to Michelle...and we found ourselves signing our names on the dotted line of an absolutely fabulous home! We had a LOT of issues after the settlement process. Lots of drama with the sellers...but the silver lining and the bright part of ALL of it...was Michelle. She went and even STILL goes above and beyond to make sure life in our new home is amazing, and we couldn't be more thankful for her. A LOT of realtors (sorry!) can be "wolves in sheep's clothing" in my mind. We've met a lot of them. But Michelle...she is someone you can trust, someone who will become a part of your family, and someone who will give everything she has to make your dreams come true. If I haven't convinced you yet, I almost want to post my personal information to talk to you about her in person. She is the best of the best...hands. Down. Purchased a Lake Lanier home.
R Po December 12, 2019
Thank you! You guys were an absolute pleasure to work with! Purchased a Flowery Branch, GA home
Vincent & Markie December 12, 2019
Michelle Sparks was a joy to work with! She gave us information about each house we visited and began to get a sense of our style after the first two houses. What makes Michelle stand out is that she offered her opinion when we asked for it but never tried to sell us on a house we did not like. We will be calling Michelle for all of our home buying needs in the future. Thanks Michelle, you are awesome! Purchased a home in Cumming, GA
Nick H December 12, 2019
Sheila Davis and the Sheila Davis Group just sold our lake Lanier home! We have never experienced a more professional, hands-on, attention to detail, Group of Realtors! From the initial listing meeting, all the way through to our close, Sheila was there to make suggestions, incorporate our ideas, ensure our home was show-ready, and field our numerous questions about the whole process. We could not be happier with the results! There’s a reason they are the number one sales group for Lake Lanier homes! Look no further, you will be in good hands! Sold a Lake Lanier home
Chuck and Mary Gammon November 20, 2019
Sheila provided excellent customer service and guided me through all the details to help me sell my home. I really appreciate that she didn't try to under price my home just to make a quick sale! Even so, it sold in two days! I am a happy customer! Thank you Sheila! Sold a home in a Lake Lanier neighborhood
Jane D. October 17, 2019
Michelle Sparks enthusiasm was evident from the first time we met. Her patience and willingness to answer so many questions helped us throughout the selling process. She took care of so many details and stayed actively engaged until the sale was finalized. Several times she met inspectors or contractors at the property when we were not able to be present. Thank you Michelle! Sold a Lake Lanier home in Dawsonville
Gene B. October 12, 2019
Nicole Columbo was awesome in listing and selling our Lake Lanier home. Her photographers were wonderful. We were under contract in 48 hours! Highly recommend Nicole and the Sheila Davis Group team. Looking forward to working with Nicole again! Sold a South Lake Lanier Waterfront home

Cindy H. July 27, 2018
Thank you Sheila Davis and Cindy Ballard! We have been looking at lake properties for over a year and half and finally found the perfect little "diamond in the rough". It was a crazy busy time scheduling-wise with other things going on in our lives and Sheila and Cindy were solid as a rock for us with the real estate deal - meeting inspectors and contractors, answering questions, negotiating, and helping us keep the whole deal on track. And the entire time, they both kept smiling. We would absolutely use the Sheila Davis group again and we would recommend them to anyone. Purchased a Lake Lanier home in Dawsonville
Joanna C. July 2, 2018
We were fortunate enough to work with Stephanie to try to find our dream home on the lake. She listened to what we were looking for, found it, guided us through the process and walked us through the close. The experience went so well that we asked her to help us sell the existing home we were in and she did so 24hrs after it was listed. Highly knowledgeable and professional and a great person. I would recommend her to any and all. Purchased a Lake Lanier home and sold a home in Hamilton Mill
Dave Schwefler June 28, 2018
Professional, polite, knowledgeable - Shelia Davis!! From our first meeting until closing (55 days!), Shelia handled our listing flawlessly. It was a pleasure working with her!

Cindy Ballard was so wonderful to work with... She communicated very well and was always available to answer any question we had. She was so professional and kept us up to date with everything regarding the purchase of our new lake house. She is very knowledgeable when it comes to lake properties! Thank you for everything you did with the house! We appreciate your professionalism and your understanding of our situation.

Thank you so much, Cindy, for your guidance, professionalism and most of all, your patience working with Bob and I. I’m very excited about my new house and know there will be many, many happy memories shared within its walls, both inside and outside. This could be a record, see the house, decide it’s the one, put in a contract, original offer accepted all within a little over 4 hours! Thank you so much for staying on top of houses for me, and more so, for taking the time to make sure that I got what was “right” for me! Things happen for reasons, this was truly one that the Lord blessed me with! Stay in touch, and thanks for everything! So appreciated. Susie ❤
Susie April 26, 2018
Polite and professional, Sheila and I became acquainted when she successfully sold a neighboring lake home several times. She was always very willing to discuss market value of my home even knowing I wasn’t necessarily planning to list. When the time came to sell my Lake Lanier home she didn’t disappoint even when we experienced some craziness from a potential buyer. She also has a strong team behind her.
Will M. April 14, 2018
We've known Sheila for a long time. She has advised us and our clients throughout the years and I have sent her several referrals in past years. More recently, Sheila provided our family with an exceptional experience. She possesses remarkable local market knowledge. She advised us on the trade-off between improvements on our house versus the value of purchasing in another neighborhood. Her advice led us to explore the local market which led to the purchase of an exceptional property. She negotiated on our behalf, helped making sure appraisal values reflected the local market, helped with property inspection and negotiating the price thereafter, once again, leading to a great purchase value. She did a great job in understanding the emotional estate of seller and buyer and worked to make the transaction take place in an amenable and graceful manner - nicely done! We would not hesitate to recommend Sheila.
Carlos D. April 10, 2018
Sheila Davis? Superstar in every regard! Just 58 days from listing to closing. Sheila provided a level of service and professional attention to detail we’ve never experienced before in a real estate transaction. Simple, smooth, start to finish. If you want it done right on Lake Lanier Sheila Davis Group is the only way to go!

Nicole did an amazing job helping me to both sell and buy a home! She works very hard and does a great job! She made the whole process very easy, I was never worried about missing a step because she helped me along the whole way and made sure I knew what to expect the whole time for both the selling and buying process. I would highly recommend using her!

Nicole Columbo was a pleasure to work with in the sale of our lake house. She was always willing to go the extra mile to make showings a breeze for all involved. She was available for questions and concerns that came up, and always looked out for our best interests as her clients. I would highly recommend her to anyone in the market for a great real estate agent.
M. Moorehead March 21, 2018
Sheila was very patient with us. She knew exactly what we were looking for and kept her eyes and ears open and helped us find the perfect home. We did pay a fair price because of her negotiations. This is our third deal with Sheila and she continues to go above and beyond our expectations. We highly recommend her to all of our friends.
Belle Brooke March 16, 2018
Stephanie Gillespie helped me out a great deal. She was aggressive and helped me locate a property and contact a seller who was very busy and hard to reach. She kept in touch, kept me tuned in to all important aspects of the transaction, and took care of all the details and made the buying experience much easier than it otherwise would have been.
mfarmer November 28, 2017
After an unsuccessful attempt to sell our home through another agency, we listed our home with Sheila Davis. She is very knowledgeable about Lake Lanier and its residential neighborhoods. She is an active member of the Lake Lanier Association which shows her dedication to lake living. Sheila, honestly and knowledgeably, answered our questions about selling price and other issues, not just giving answers she thought we wanted to hear. She was aggressive in helping us stage our house (we had already moved and taken most of the furnishings with us) and advertised extensively. She and her team were very comfortable with the special features of our house (pool, waterfall, etc) and one of them was always on site to turn features on/off and to answer questions, but not to interfere with a potential buyer’s visit. Sheila was very patient and helpful as we nervously went through to contract and closing processes. We enjoyed working with the Sheila Davis Group and recommend them to others hoping to sell a home on/near Lake Lanier.

Shelia was a pleasure to work with. She was always in contact with us and the status of the sale and closing. She helped take some of the stress out of selling our home. Thank you

Sheila and her team were great. They provided an honest opinion regarding the value of the home with well researched support. Throughout the process they provided sound advice and were very responsive to any request.

Our experience with Shelia Davis Group was wonderful. We had looked online and selected 8 homes that we wanted to look at. We contacted Shelia and she immediately got a date and times to for us to look at the homes. We found the lake home we wanted. Sheila was very helpful in making the purchasing process simple and enjoyable. davnandan

Sheila and her team are awesome. She sold both of my Lake Lanier properties very quickly. And the process was very easy. I would recommend Sheila to all my friends. Top notch marketing and listing services and just a really really nice person to work with. We could not have been happier! James A. Robbins

We contacted Sheila Davis because of her knowledge and experience of lake homes. She did not disappoint! Without starting any renovations or even having any idea of what new home we wanted, we were able to find a new house, negotiate a crazy long contingency period, do major renovations on our house, list it and close on both in the time frame that we were shooting for. With the renovations, long contract length, and then quick closing, there were some bumps in the road that Sheila and her team handled and navigated us through even right up to closing. We are in our new home in time for school and couldn't be happier! Matt & Kelly D.

We had a great experience working with Shelia Davis when we purchased a lake cottage on Lake Lanier! She was very professional and responsive to all our questions. She did a lot of due diligence on the property so it made it much easier for us to make a quick decision to make an offer on the property. There was another offer right behind ours and I have to credit Shelia for advising us to make a quick decision. Shelia did a great job on listing and marketing the property. We really liked the video with the aerial view that we could share with our friends. I would highly recommend Shelia to sell any property! We could not be happier with our purchase or the process of making the purchase! David & Dixie D.

Sheila was a joy to work with and was right on top of everything in our new home purchase. A real professional and very hard worker. She is NOT a part timer. Great job Sheila!

We met with Stephanie Gillespie to show us some homes and I was so impressed with her. She was right on time with which started us off on the right foot. She made it a point to get the most out of our day. I'm sure it took many phone calls and careful planning to get us from point A to B to C, etc. Not one glitch in her logistics which was nice because we were unfamiliar with the area. She also had a packet with just enough information to give me a rundown of each property which was quite informative without being overwhelming. I felt that Stephanie listened to our wants and needs and truly had our best interest in mind. I would recommend her and will absolutely refer her to my friends. Thank you, Stephanie! Wendy F.

When we first met with Sheila Davis, she conveyed to us an important message of confidence in selling our home on Lake Lanier. Sheila’s professionalism, coupled with her knowledge and experience in the lake area real estate market let us know that we had selected the right person to help us through this process. From our perspective, listing our home for sale was more than simply marketing our home. It served as a launching pad for our next step in our life journey. Sheila made a commitment to market our home to a targeted group of prospective home buyers. For us, this meant that each showing was to pre-qualified clients who were interested in finding a home on Lake Lanier. It was, in fact, a pleasure to partner with Sheila and her team. Throughout the process, she and the members of her team provided professional counsel, were caring, and remained committed to working tirelessly to ensure the success of all aspects of the process from listing to closing. We highly recommend Sheila, not because of our success, but because we see her providing the same professional guidance to others. Bruce & Deb Longshore

We just wanted to pass on some words of appreciation for our Realtor, Sheila Davis, and her real estate team at the Norton Agency in Gainesville, GA. We were completely satisfied throughout our entire selling process. Sheila and her team were professional, conscientious, and motivated. Her professionalism, hard work, motivation and frequent communication with us really made the selling process go smoothly. We do and will continue to recommend Sheila Davis as a great real estate agent. She is extremely knowledgeable regarding Lake Lanier properties. She sold our lake home very quickly. We recommended her to a friend and their Lake Lanier property was sold very quickly, as well. Thanks again, Sheila and continued success! Fred and Marty G.

Sheila is a real pro. She's among the small group of realtors from the area who lead sales on Lake Lanier and have done so year after year over a long period of time. She has a great demeanor for dealing with potential conflict situations between buyer and seller. Also, a member of her team, Cindy, was especially helpful throughout the process of buying our new home. She was very responsive when we needed her to let us in the unoccupied house to do measurements and other planning for our move. The Norton Agency's Home Works program is great and was very helpful in getting due diligence items (from the seller's cash settlement) completed soon after closing.

It was my good fortune to have Sheila Davis list and sell my home on Lake Lanier. Like most sellers of high-end homes, I was occasionally frustrated with the time it took to sell; however throughout the process Sheila was always patient and confident in her approach and recommendations. She knows the market, does her homework, and was always professional and thorough. She is also respectful that you are the client. She will stand her ground and make the case for her approach....but, it's not " my way or the highway "....we had productive and open discussions on strategy. Sheila was really a star in navigating us through the sales agreement negotiation and a complex set of hurdles placed before us by our buyer to reach closure and ultimately closing. She was " hands on " and collaborative with us as well as the buyer's agent, came up with creative solutions, and kept us optimistic, calm, and focused on the final result. Pat and Janie Glissin

Thanks, Cindy, for all of your effort in helping us find our new home. Thanks to you and Sheila also for coming to the closing and for our housewarming gifts! I'm sure we will enjoy them very much.

Having been a real estate closing attorney for many years, I was extremely impressed with Sheila's professionalism. From listing to closing, she was always there for me.

I hired Sheila to sell my home on Lake Lanier prior to moving to Alpharetta. She sold the property in two weeks to a cash buyer. She helped me work through the negotiations on the house so I was able to close at a price I was comfortable with. She did such a wonderful job for me I hired Sheila to represent me on my home purchase in Alpharetta. She is professional, extremely knowledgeable of the lake and the players in the area, (which is very important when selling lake property). Realtors know her and she has a good reputation with them. If you want to sell your house, you need to interview Sheila for the job. I have bought and sold eight houses in my lifetime and Sheila is a standout when it comes to realtors. Lana Evans
