About Us

Leon & Connie Collins have been selling homes, land, and commercial real estate together since they moved to Byron in 1982.  From their prime corner office location in Byron, they have been successfully selling real estate in Byron, Warner Robins, Fort Valley, Macon, and Perry, including Peach, Houston, Bibb, and Crawford Counties for the last 32 years.

As second generation Realtors, they love their business!  Leon & Connie know middle Georgia real estate and enjoy using their knowledge and experience to assist buyers and sellers in their area.  

Their primary priorities are to honor and reflect Christ in their church, home, and business.  With their faith supporting them, they are able to confidently tell buyers and sellers to "Get Collins & Get Moving!"


C. Leon Collins, Jr.

Leon's parents, Clarence and Lorraine Collins, were both REALTORS for 30 years in Fort Valley, where Leon grew up.  When he turned 18, he earned his real estate salesperson's license, and became the youngest salesperson in Georgia at the time. At 21, he earned his real estate Broker's license, becoming the youngest Broker in Georgia then!  So as you can see, real estate is in his blood!

While in college, Leon worked for the Real Estate Department at the University of Georgia as a computer programmer.  In fact, he wrote the very first program to produce a HUD-1 Settlement Statement on a computer. So he naturally uses the latest technological innovations in his business to help him give the most professional and personal service possible. He graduated cum laude from the University of Georgia with a BBA in Real Estate and Urban Development .

Leon & Connie

Leon & Connie are both faithful University of Georgia Bulldog fans, since they met each other there and married a few years later.

In their free time Leon and Connie enjoy boat riding, water & snow skiing, traveling, sailing, and church ministry activities.  More recently, any spare time is spent with their new grandson and their only daughter and son-in-law, Carolyn and Keith Donnelly, who live in Atlanta. 

Yes, they appreciate pets, as they have a sprited Papillon dog named Trudie Kate, and several outdoor cats!


"Connie and I both truly LOVE the real estate business! We love people and especially like to help them find just the home they are looking for. We look at our business as a ministry and are constantly looking for ways to go the extra mile to make our customers' transactions be as smooth and trouble free as possible."
