AMG Heroes Division focuses on providing the best real estate services to military members (current/retired) , first-responders, medical professionals and their families throughout the Emerald Coast of Florida.


We can help you find the right house that you can call home

As Veterans or military spouses ourselves, we understand the stress and pressure of relocating a military family and will always have your family’s best interests at heart whether you need to buy or sell a house.


As a veteran-owned company, we’re committed to excellence, integrity, and service that’s unmatched elsewhere. Our team are more than just realtors, we are locals, investors, and many of us, as retired military and first responders understand the most complex family situations and are dedicated to helping you achieve your real estate goals-large or small.

As a part of the Abbott Martin Group | eXp Realty family here on the coast, we have access to a broad network of resources, including lenders, inspectors, and other industry professionals who can help facilitate a smoother transaction to save you time and money.

Not only do we serve our clients on a daily basis, but we seek to give back to our community, by donating to local charities that support veterans, active-duty military members, first responders, medical professionals and their families.







In fact, Heroes Division Founder Mike Sakalauski, still serves our country with the U.S. Army. With more than 19 years of military experience, Mike has been an active part of Abbott Martin Group since being stationed here in 2018.

Today, AMGHD’s growing team is comprised of veterans, military spouses, and retired first-responders who understand you and your unique needs and can help make your dreams of home ownership and investing here on the Emerald Coast a reality.

Not a veteran, first responder or medical professional … No worries, we’ve got you covered too!



“Mike has been wonderful to work with on purchasing and selling properties. We have worked with other realtors in other cities in the past, but can’t imagine going through the process with anyone else now that we’ve
met him.”

— Joel & Victoria
