OUR BUYER Comments

What our Buyers have to say:

Sharon Prewitt

We have just closed on our Home (6/16/16) after 6 months of looking! Allison was the most patient Realtor® we have ever met!! Along with her husband Chad they stuck with us through all of our issues that we incured during the process of purchasing a home! Although This was our third home purchase, we were not ready for the situations that popped within our finances and other areas. Allison and Chad were there every step of the way! She even let me vent from time to time when I was a bit anxious! They both took the time to explain every little detail. I honestly don't think that we would be in our home had it not been for the expert services that people like Allison and Chad provided! I would recommend them to anyone( as a matter of fact we have)!

Top notch realtor! We loved working with Allison and Chad, and they hung in there with us until we found "the one". They even helped us do the impossible...closing in one week's time! Definitely your realtors for this area!

Bought a home in 2016 in Peterson, Cottondale, AL 35453.

I found Allison through an online listing. Although that particular listing wasn't for us, she continued to help us find the perfect one. She was so helpful and kind through the whole process. (Side note- She even lended me her jacket when I didn't have one with me!) Allison found us the perfect More

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $200K in Northport, AL.

After a mutual friend gave me Allison's information, we set off on a the house buying journey. She was by far accommodating in my search for the perfect house for me. She did a magnificent job learning what I was really looking for in a house and I think we looked at almost every house in  Tuscaloosa until I found the perfect one for me! Did I mention she was patient!

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $175K in Brookwood, AL.

Allison was the ONLY agent that contacted me back out of 6. She was super flexible and accommodated every want or need. She sent me info on every house I inquired without getting pre-approved, while all other agents would not even speak with us until doing so. We fell in love with the very first  house we viewed. Everything fell into place and we got everything we wanted. To make things even easier, her husband,Chad Adams just happens to be the finance bank guy so you get two for the price of one! She sold us the house and he financed it. He was extremely down to earth and made things very easy for us. I absolutely recommend Allison and Chad if you are looking to buy a house!! Thanks so much! Hope we remain in touch you guys are great people!!!

Allison is amazing!! She helped us find our dream home and was unbelievable in the negotiation of the same with the builder. It was like house shopping with a knowledgeable friend. Allison kept in contact with us throughout the entire process, giving us many updates along the way. She even went out  of her to make sure we settled in okay and received all that we expected. Would recommend her to anyone!

For Buyers

It takes more than a trained real estate agent to understand the needs and concerns of buyer clients. 

My goal is to make you feel comfortable,keep you informed, help prepare your credit so that you can get the best rates if borrowing, help you negotiate a price that works for your goals, and make the transition to home owner a smooth one.

I don’t want to minimize the technical aspects of the home buying process. Every year it becomes more complex. Between government legislation, environmental laws, mortgage documentation requirements and the legal aspects of a home purchase, the home buyer must be on top of all aspects of the process, or be helped by a professional.

I'm here to assist buyers in the Tuscaloosa area and live and work on Lake Tuscaloosa.

Search Assistance   Automated Search Reports
MLS®-Search-Assistance2.jpg   Automated-Search-Reports3.jpg
I help my buyers understand the many fields of information in an listing search. I guide them in making the most of searches with thousands of listings. There are many homes that come up in searches that may be outdated information or incorrect. We have a professional database through MLS® that provides current data.   Once I have an idea of your criteria for a home selection, I can set up automated search alert emails to keep you informed of new listings and price reductions of qualified properties.
     
Financing Assistance   Price Negotiations
Financing-Assistance.jpg   Price-Negotiations.jpg
As tough as it is these days to get a mortgage, I know the best sources in the Tuscaloosa, Aliceville, Eutaw, Gordo, and Northport real estate markets and will help you to contact mortgage professionals who have been very helpful to my past clients. As the wife of a CPA I know the importance of credit ratings in qualifying and can help direct you in cleaning up your credit prior to making an application.   Buyers shouldn’t walk into a deal unarmed. I arm you with market data to help you to understand the buyer and seller sides and formulate an offer price negotiation strategy.
     
Inspections & Repair Negotiations   Contract to Closing
Inspections-Repair-Negotiations.jpg   Contract-to-Closing2.jpg
Price isn’t the only negotiation, as there will be property inspections and you may need to enter into more negotiating around property condition and repairs. As an interior design graduate from the Univesity of Alabama with ten years experience prior to Real Estate and a number of personal renovations I can help you envision the possibilites and work around the "warts" of a diamond in the rough.   The myriad of tasks, documents and delivery deadlines involved in a real estate transaction are all coordinated by me and the Lake Homes Realty staff. We have relationships with a number of highly qualified companies who can assure that your closing goes smoothly and can provide a list so you can make the best decision when choosing representation.
     

Buyers in the Tuscaloosa and Northport real estate markets are frequently referred to me by previous highly satisfied clients.

Call me at 205-914-2400, or email me to get started in working for you.

I pride myself in responding quickly. Text me an address and I will send you information usually within the hour (10am-8 pm) and sometimes later.

I realize your home search is important to YOU, so I make it a priority.
