Success Breeds Success ~ Greg Hill Purchases Century 21 Wilson Minger

Niceville FL

During his junior year at the University of Georgia a laid back roommate suggested Greg Hill had the makings of a very good salesman. The furthest thing from his mind. Hill told his friend, well … that was the furthest thing from his mind. He had no interest whatsoever in selling anything. Ever. That was not what political science majors do.

Political science majors are supposed to graduate and scientifically politic for a living. Or politically do science. No one really knows what political science majors do.

While in Athens, his fraternity brothers assigned Hill the nickname Ajax, because he had boundless energy and was "stronger than dirt".  Those qualities would serve him well in life.

Like so many, following graduation Hill did not wish to leave campus. Thus, he began his professional career as a UGA admissions counselor. He spent two glorious years recruiting students to the school he loved. He did not admit that was, uh, a sales job.

Next came a move to Tallahassee to embark on an award winning six years as lobbyist and National Director for the Justice Fellowship. Anyone who ever tried to ethically persuade a legislator to do anything knows that is the toughest sales job on earth.

Still refusing to confess he was a salesman, Hill founded a rather ironically named company, Greg Hill Sales. OK, somewhere along the line he concluded he could and did sell. In fact, he sold very successfully. That college roommate was onto something after all.

Departing momentarily from Hill’s non-sales-but-actually-was-sales career path, he makes a claim no other human can. Hill was Mark Richt’s Tallahassee Sunday school teacher. When Richt was hired away from FSU to UGA’s head coach position, he frequently cited where he learned just how enthusiastic Georgia Bulldogs were. He said a friend at church was “the biggest nutbag football fan” he had ever seen. Some things come full circle in life, and Richt is again a famous and popular Floridian. No word as to whether he has yet encountered a bigger nutbag than Greg Hill. But not to digress further.

After 20 years of gradually realizing he was dang good at sales, in 2016 Hill launched a real estate career at Niceville’s renowned Century 21 Wilson Minger agency. Is it coincidence that same year Niceville was named the Best Place to Live in Florida?

Founded in 1959, Century 21 Wilson Minger is one of the oldest and most respected real estate companies on the Emerald Coast. They rate a remarkable 97% in customer service satisfaction year after year and are Niceville’s #1 real estate office since 2004.

Only 14 months into the profession, in April Greg Hill purchased Wilson Minger. That is an exceptionally fast path to leadership in real estate. He credits his rapid success to the agents and managers around him. Their unwavering dedication to customers first is a quality Hill has embraced for decades. Leadership and agents plan to change little about what has grown to be a revered institution. They simply intend to expand on the enduring legacy of outstanding service for which Wilson Minger is so well known.

To experience buying or selling a home the Century 21 Wilson Minger way call nutbag Greg Hill on his direct line at 850-339-7856.  Ask for Ajax, and tell him Mark Richt sent you.
