About Us

Collins Real Estate

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 40 years.

"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 possib

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!"

Leon Collins, Broker


Leon's parents, Clarence and Lorraine Collins, both ran the original Collins Real Estate office for 30 years in Fort Valley, where Leon grew up.  When he turned 18, he became the youngest salesperson in Georgia at the time and at 21, he became the youngest Broker in Georgia.  So as you can see, real estate is in his blood!
 Leon worked for the Real Estate Department at the University of Georgia as a computer programmer during college.  He wrote the 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. He later earned his Doctor of Laws degree from Emory University School of Law, followed by his Masters of Tax Law (LL.M) degree in Taxation from University of Miami School of Law.  After practicing tax and business law for four years in Americus, GA, he and Connie moved back to Byron in 1982 to continue the family business at Collins Real Estate.  And naturally, he uses his legal knowledge every day in his real estate business!

Connie Carter Collins


A native of Plains, Georgia,  Connie Carter Collins earned a Master's degree in Elementary Education from the University  of Georgia, graduating summa cum laude.  She later taught 3rd grade in Dekalb County for a few years.  After they moved to Byron, she received her real estate  salesperson's license and has been working with Leon ever since.  Yes, she is that sweet voice on the other end of the line when you call the office!  

Connie and Leon both enjoy pontooning on the lake, sailing, swimming, getting with friends and fellow church members, and visiting their two grandchildren as often as they can.

 Samantha Joyner

As a Byron native Samantha has strong ties to the community.  She recognizes and values the trust her clients place in her and strives every day to exceed their expectations.  Her sales of over 2 million in the first 1.5 years of her real estate career proves her dedication to her clients.  She understands that selling and buying a home can be exciting, stressful, and complex.  You can count on the fact that she will be there every step of the way to make sure everything goes smoothly.  

Prior to getting into real estate, Samantha worked in EMS as a Shift Supervisor Paramedic for over 29 years and developed great leadership skills and relationships within the community. These experiences obviously instilled in her the discipline it takes to build her real estate career and be the best for her clients.  More than anything else, she wants to make sure her clients feel supported.  With her, you can relax in the confidence that you have a trusted advisor by your side. 

Adam Hudson

Adam is a native to the Middle Georgia area. He grew up in Zebulon and graduated from Pike County High School in 2008.  After serving in the U.S. Navy for four years after high school, Adam attended Middle Georgia State University where he completed a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and Management.

Adam now lives here in Byron with his wife, Katlyn, and their two dogs. They enjoy spending their free time at the lake and adventuring outdoors with their friends and family.

We are very excited about having Adam as part of the Collins Real Estate family. His energetic approach to real estate allows him to provide the highest level of customer service to each and every client.  His knowledge of Peach and surrounding counties will allow him to find your perfect dream home or to sell your home for top dollar!
