It Takes a Village: Find Out How One Agent Helps Generations Find Their Perfect Home

Madalyn and Scott Jordan enjoying their first home together.


Home is where we make memories with our family and friends. It’s where you jot down how tall your child grows with each passing day. It is where a lemonade stand once stood and brought in more money than you could count on two hands.

A home symbolizes many things for so many people. Home is where a family gathers around a table laughing and celebrating with each new season.  Madalyn Jordan shared similar memories. After marrying Scott, they began to make their own memories and were in need of that very special place to live. They knew that they would need to call in reinforcements, Merry Leach, Realtor at RealtySouth.


“Merry has always been a crowd favorite in my family. She first worked with my uncle, who recommended Merry to my parents. She helped my parents buy and sell their first two homes, as well as, build a third. I have known Merry my whole life,” explained  Madalyn.

“Working with generations of families is just the best!  You get to know the whole family! I have met both sets of Madalyn’s grandparents and truly feel like a special friend of this family,” said Merry.

 Merry has been with RealtySouth since the start of her career as a real estate agent.  "I started my real estate career in 1986, with Johnson Rast and Hayes, which later became RealtySouth," said Merry. 


Merry sells mostly in the  Over the Mountain market, but has sold in the North and East markets too. She is the on-site sales agent in The Preserve since 2002. 

 “It was such a cool experience to be able to use the same realtor to buy our first home together that my parents used to purchase their first home. Merry’s knowledge, experience, and understanding of the entire process made everything very easy for us. She took the time to go through each step with us, explaining the process as we went,” said Madalyn.

 “When Madalyn’s dad and I first started looking at homes, he came in with a large binder on  How to Buy and Sell Real Estate. He was very serious about the process! We had a great time getting that first home! They were such a sweet and beautiful young couple! I have many other great memories of this family.  I consider them to be very dear friends,” exclaimed Merry.


 Madalyn and Scott found their perfect first home in Pelham, Alabama, and made it their own. After some time, an opportunity knocked for these two to move to Cullman, Alabama. Who did these two decide to call to list their first home? Of course, Merry Leach. Once you find someone who understands your needs and is able to guide you through the home buying or selling process, they are a life-long friend.


“Merry’s guidance and hard work paid off when our house sold at asking price," said Madalyn.



Since moving to Cullman,  Madalyn is excited about taking on a home renovation and enjoying the new city they now call home. “It’s time to channel my inner Joanna Gaines, haha!  We are excited to embark on this new adventure-keeping the charm of an older home, while updating and making it our own," said Madalyn.


“Selling real estate is a dream job for me! Helping clients achieve their real estate wants and needs is very gratifying. Some transactions are more challenging than others but working through these challenges is also very gratifying. My goal is for every transaction to be a win-win! I honestly feel like I have the best clients! I am thankful for their trust in me and their loyalty!  My hope after working with my clients is, they feel that I have treated them like family,” said Merry Leach.
