Does anyone think that it is odd that me. Higgins has his hand in so many local pots? He buys trucks and sells them to the city. He leases buildings to the city. His family bids local construction contracts and gets them. Why? Because of a clause giving partial treatment to the local contractors. Just wondering?

Don Higgins does not pay his bills. I just wonder how many business have outstanding bills of his. If you have not been paid for services rendered, please comment. How can someone like him operate in a small county like Habersham?

You need to ask more...
why does he own buildings and then lease them to the city
why does he get preferential treatment in business dealings
why does he buy cars and then sell them to the city for a profit.

Now he's running for school board 2012. He won't hire people who are worthy unless they are thin. He has his hands into too much locally, and there are tons of people in Cornelia who think he is a "snake in the grass". Nice reputation!

Actually, it was Don's son who ran for school board. I'm sure he lost due to the reputation of the family name. Don is the biggest hypocrite and crook I've ever met. He's all about the money. After sitting in church on Sundays, you'd think he'd learn that he can't take it with him.

Don Higgins has been such a disservice to Habersham County residents. Those that own homes here are at the mercy of a man who does not care how his tenants keep the area. When I report an issue to him he states "its a civil matter". As a landlord he is ultimately responsible to ensure that his gain is not causing the home values to decrease for the surrounding home owners. HE SHOULD BE ASHAMED!

He feels he is 'untouchable' and controls Habersham County. Such a shame.

Higgins Realty located in Cornelia Georgia, to rent a storage unit from their company. I was quickly dismissed and given a credit application to rent a storage building. I was told I had to fill it out to be able to even look at their storage unit.I found it to be quite awkward as I didn't want to store in a chemicals or anything that I shouldn't just near equipment that I use for my business.I only needed the storage building for a couple of months due to transitioning between buildings.undertaking the application home I let my girlfriend review it. As it seems weird they need a credit check for me to rent a storage unit. She went back the next day to rent a storage unit Unbeknownst as who she was and was asked if she was with that guy that came in yesterday. to cut things short we were both cut off Cobra even at our attempt at being polite and nice. I figured that my money must not be good to him or he has bad business ethics I refuse to be ignored I work hard for my money just as anyone else and I refuse to be treated horribly just because I'm younger. I really think this guy should learn how to practice business I've seen this place is Betty rent and generally speaking there in horrible shape if he's doing credit checks you should also be doing maintenance

I really hope that Mr Higgins is not like all of these comments that I am reading. Although I am getting kind of nervous. I have moldy ceiling tiles in my bedroom and my bathroom closet. There are moldy tiles in my utility closet. Ants crawl up and down my bedroom wall and onto my bed at all hours of the day and night. The lead paint on my bedroom walls peels off and falls onto the floor all day long. I would hope that he is a better human being than what I am reading. But even through the complaint that I have made at the office, none of my problems have been addressed. I am looking into moving soon, & I will get my deposit back or I will sue.

I will. Anybody that has a valid complaint should stand up to him. You do not have to live in Legally poor conditions. Lead paint is illegal. Mold is illegal. Unsafe living environment is illegal. Health hazards are illegal. If he is not addressing these situations, you have legal grounds to move, so, get your deposit back.
