THE BENNETT GROUP
The Bennett Group is family business, and every decision which lead to its formation was rooted in the importance of family. Craig Bennett, the team leader, got into real estate after taking an early retirement from IBM and moving his family from Atlanta, GA to Amelia Island. Amelia has long been a place of retreat for Craig and he could imagine no better place to raise a family and spend time. The move was motivated by a desire to spend more time with his children, since he and his wife, Mary, felt they would have more time outside of the hustle and bustle that is Atlanta. When deciding what profession in which to launch his second career, Craig decided on real estate. The flexibility in his schedule that it allowed meant he never missed a game or regatta for either of his children. From the beginning, real estate has been a family business, and Craig operates this business with the belief that customers are family too.
Once Craig and Mary’s children were off to college, Mary began helping Craig full-time, and together they grew the business to new heights. Mary’s licensing in 2010 was the real start of The Bennett Group, even though the name would not come about for a few more years. Both of the children, Cody and Megan, went to college pursuing degrees in different fields.Ultimately, they both returned home to join the family business of making memories on Amelia. Now it is a truly whole family affair, and all four of the Bennett’s work together to ensure that their customers receive a level of service second to none - a level of dedication only found in family.
Our slogan, Helping You Create Lasting Memories, came about when Craig was trying to define why he enjoys real estate so much. It afforded him the freedom to spend time with his children creating wonderful memories. Many former customers are good friends, and the Bennett’s continue to make lasting memories through the business. This endeavor became a passion the whole family shares because it gives them the opportunity to introduce people to the bright and vibrant place which they call home. We get to make memories helping others experience and share our hometown, so that they can make memories of their own in this truly unique coastal community.
