RealtySouth agent helps couple find dream home.


Are you in the market to buy a house or wish to sell your home? We have three major reasons to consider when working with real estate agents and REALTOR®. We have more than 800 amazing agents ready to play matchmaker between you and your dream home. Our agents are trained with relocation knowledge to assist with your big move. 


1.) Real Estate Agents Are Knowledgeable: This Saves You Time and Energy

As a home buyer, seller or renter you know what you like, but maybe you are unsure of the process? At first, it can be overwhelming. This is what our experienced and educated real estate agents do best! RealtySouth agents are aware of market trends and attend regular company-wide trainings. Our agents receive support from our in-house technology team and our award-winning team of marketing professionals.

Attention to detail is crucial and our innovative team continues to be trailblazers in the industry. There is extensive documentation when buying or selling your home. Documents such as written offers, counteroffers, contracts, appraisals or inspections are needed. Buying or selling a home in Alabama is time consuming and RealtySouth agents value your time. 

Our agents have the tools needed to find or sell your home in Alabama. They know the local market and are able to spot your desired city or neighborhood. They can negotiate on your behalf and provide a one of a kind experience. 


2.) Invaluable Relationships Come With Real Estate Agents: A Mutually Beneficial Partnership

RealtySouth agents advocate for you! They are pillars in the community and represent your interests when communicating with all parties involved. Our agents provide a transparent approach and have access to properties listed by other agents. RealtySouth has a vast network of professional contacts and friends throughout the state of Alabama. 

Real estate agents and REALTORS® (members of the National Association of REALTOR®) are in the business of people. Let our agents work for you!

RealtySouth agents are industry experts that provide unparalleled service because we care! As the industry leader, it is our responsibility to ensure that your experience is enjoyable.


3.) REALTORS® Work by a Code of Honor: You’ll Get Honesty from Real Estate Professionals

It doesn’t cost you to hire or work with a real estate agent. Agents are licensed professionals and those who are a part of the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) are REALTORS®. All REALTOR® are real estate agents. REALTORS® pledge to follow the code of ethics, a comprehensive list containing 17 articles and underlying standards of practice, which establish levels of conduct that are higher than ordinary business practices or those required by law. Working with a licensed real estate agent under an agency agreement — a conventional, full-service commission agreement in which the agent agrees to represent you — means your agent will be bound by common law (in most states) to a fiduciary relationship. The agent is bound by license law to act in their clients' best interest and not his or her own.

Consider a real estate agent when you're in the market to buy or sell your home. We have top producing agents and REALTORS® who are dedicated to their profession and passionate about guiding their clients throughout the process. Our professionals come with the specific knowledge, tools, training and network you need to find a place to call home.
