I love helping first time home buyers, foreclosures and getting the best deal for my buyers and my sellers. I have worked alot with banks and investors with short sales and foreclosures. I love the challenge!
"I had purchased two and sold two houses before I met Dede. I was honestly dreading purchasing another house. I was surprised when I found myself enjoying the whole buying experience. Talking to Dede one day during the process I figured out what was happening. The last thing on Dede’s mind was to sell me a house. I soon realized her entire emphasis was helping me find a home for me and my children. She gave me direct simple advice that made the process make sense. If you are looking for an agent that will go the extra mile and find you an affordable home for you and your family, Dede is the “bomb”!"
"Dede went above and beyond to get our house sold. She's a true professional and has such a dynamic personality, we received three offers on our house in one weekend. We were amazed. Dede has incredible energy coupled with comprehensive knowledge of the real estate market. Her passion for real estate and commitment to our needs as her clients were extraordinary."
Raul & Linda Emnace
I am a novice real estate investor that has had the opportunity to work with DeDe in the past. Although the home was a small investment property, DeDe provided a level of quality of serveice that I would expect from someone marketing a half million dollar home. She provided great insight, was easily accessible, and sold the home in less in a week. I will certainly call upon DeDe in the future.
"Hi Dede, Miss you so much. Yes we are still loving the house. When we make all the changes I will call you so you can come see the changes hopefully it will be by next summer. thanks for helping my family and I accomplish the all American Dream and I will recommend you until the end of time or until you retire.. ha, ha HAPPY HOLIDAYS... to you and yours........... Kbmarcia" Marcia Knighton
"Our experience buying our first home with Dede as our realtor was awesome. Not only was she our realtor, she quickly became our friend as well. I went to her, knowing exactly what I wanted..she immediately went to work for us. We actually looked at 16 different houses in one day..lol..boy was that exhausting. My husband and I had went to her not having any knowledge on buying a home...Dede looked out for our best interest and was so patient in explaining the processes of everything. She wasn't just out to make her commission and be done with us. She even went as far as getting us a better interest rate through another lender. Dede is a great person, friend, and realtor. As long as she is in the real estate business, I will always go to her for my home buying needs. As everyone knows, you're very first home will always be dear and special...I am so thankful we found Dede to share the experience with. Sincerely, Jason and Ivy Franks" Jason & Ivy Franks
"As our agent, Dede gave us wonderful ideas on how to stage our house and make it "picture perfect" for selling. Her enthusiasm always provided motivation in such a challenging market. She did a great job communicating to potential buyers how perfect our house would be for them. We were thrilled to put the SOLD sign up by her name!" Brian & Rebecca
""Dede was the absolute BEST! She was always available and accomodating to our busy schedules. As first time home buyers, she totally put us at ease and taught us a lot too. I would highly recommend her to anyone and plan on asking her to assist us in the future!"" Jennifer Belyeu
Thank you so much for your tireless hard work in getting our garden home sold! In spite of a real estate market that is so depressed that you can hardly give a house away, you saw this one through to completion...not to mention that it was a Dryvit home on top of it all! Dryvit is a fantastic product when it is applied correctly, which our home WAS done correctly. Sadly, Dryvit has received a bad reputation due to a few careless contractors in the past who did not know what they were doing, or did not care, which resulted in rotted wood and damaged windows. Nevertheless, you overcame all of the obstacles and helped us obtain the sale! You represented us extremely well Dede. I would recommend your expertise in real estate sales to anyone who is in need of selling a home! Sincerely, Johnny Whitten Birmingham, Alabama" Johnny Whitten
