Tracie went above and beyond to search for the perfect condo for my husband and I. The only thing we knew for sure was that we wanted a condo on the beach. With that info Tracie patiently spent 3 days showing us property eventually finding our perfect place at the beach.  We definitely loved working with her!

Tracie,
 
We just wanted to send you a little note to say “Thank-You” for everything you did to make our dream of owning property in Gulf Shores a reality!
 
Having our main home in Wisconsin gave us concerns about trying to buy from so far away but you made it easy and guided through every step. We really appreciate how you shared your insights on the various properties we looked at which made us much more comfortable with our final decision. And, the actual mechanics of the offer to closing process were much easier and smoother than we expected thanks to your know-how.
 
Finally, you were always there via phone or email and returned calls and messages quickly. Communication is something that is very important for us and you were great!
 
Once our friends visit and decide they have to buy here also, you are definitely the realtor we will recommend.
 
Best Regards,
Deb and Al Roth

Hi Tracie,

I just wanted to drop you a note, now that I’m at home in my new house, to thank you for the excellent work you did to get me here.
I certainly was lucky when I stopped in at the Paradise ReMax, told the receptionist I needed an agent who could work with me when I was in California, and you came out to help!
Everything you’ve done, from sending listings based on the preferences we discussed to writing the offer, dealing with questions for the seller and all of the contingencies, setting me up with a mortgage broker, and recommendations for services once I was here have all been done in an extremely professional, competent, and friendly manner.  You have been sincerely interested and concerned that I find the right house, at the right price, and that my experience in a new state is as easy as possible.  I truly appreciate all you’ve done to help.  I certainly wouldn’t be here today without you!
The only glitch, of course, was on the California side, with an agent who didn’t perform.  The contrast with you was amazing.  After waiting too long, I switched to a different selling agent, and with the help of both of you, I’m now happily settling into my new life here in Orange Beach.
Thank you so much!
Best,
Barbara

Subject:  Tracie Sweat

My name is Don Danner and my permanent residence is in the state of Tennessee. I have been a condo owner in Orange Beach since March of 2000, but actually started shopping for my first condo in late 1999. I have owned 3 condos that I have lived in since then due to hurricane Ivan and the development buying in the 2004-2006 time frame and have worked with a number of real estate agents during that time.

I decided in August of 2015 to buy a rental condo and submitted some inquiries on a Sunday afternoon on-line expecting to hear something from some of the agents I had used in the past and others. To my amazement I had some information from Tracie Sweat in a matter of a couple of hours. I had never worked with Tracie before but my impression was if she could respond that quickly, a Sunday afternoon, she must be a hard worker in the real estate business. I made arrangements to meet with her the next day after telling her what I was looking for.

My impression was correct, she was the most professional, hard working agent I had worked with in the area. When we met she had an itinerary lined up for us to start shopping and we did. There were two or three of these shopping trips before I was ready to make an offer but she never hesitated about showing me more if I asked. Some of my previous agents contacted me 2-4 days after my inquiry but by that time I knew Tracie was going to be my agent for any future real estate business in the area and she has been.

I have recommended her to friends of mine wanting to buy condos in the area, some have and they agree with me about her professionalism and work ethic. If you are her client she works extremely hard for you providing all the information requested and informing you if other issues may be going on in the area, she is your agent. I decided to sell my rental unit and listed it with Tracie and it was under contract in less than a month.

I cannot recommend her enough for anyone needing a real estate agent in the area, you want find one any better in my opinion, and I consider her a friend if there isn't real estate business going on.

First things first! I want to apologize to Ms. Tracie for not being able to properly express my gratitude for her help! Through the years we have bought and sold several properties! Each time we ended up with different agents! It seemed like the better sales were, they less concerned the agents were!
  Deciding to set down roots in LA ( lower Alabama) we began our search! I can't exactly remember how I found Ms. Tracie but I called her to work on a FSBO condo we found! She took over handling the leg work, including showing other comparable units. This young lady walked our legs off but left no stone unturned until we were satisfied that we had found "the perfect home".
  Looking at our retirement plans, we decided to invest in condos in the same area! We found several online that she gladly showed us but at the same time she had found ones that we missed and showed them to us also! With her help and complete knowledge of the area, we settled on 3 and bought all 3! Thank you so much! 
  Was Ms. Tracie finished after she wrote and got all 3 contracts accepted??? Heck no!! Through her knowledge of people in the area, she got us connected to a small local bank that worked with us from day one! Anything they needed was promptly provided by Ms. Tracie and soon the deals were complete! Thanks again!!
   Ends there? I think not! This wonderful young lady proceeded to use her knowledge of the area once again to get us connected with I feel is the finest rental agency in the area! Again, thank you!!
    Last word ( I Promise) is that I cannot recommend strongly enough, that if you want the most diligent knowledgeable and compassionate agent in Orange Beach or Gulf Shores or anywhere in Southern Alabama, see Ms Tracie Sweat today!!!
   Ms. Tracie,, thanks again!!!
Best Regards,

Tracie Sweat;

In early August 2015 I made a decision to purchase a rental condo in the Orange Beach/Gulf Shores area. I found Tracie's website, findgulfrealestate.com , signed on and think it was one of the best when searching for properties. I was able to list the criteria I was looking for in a rental condo and immediately found what was on the market.

 

I recall this was on a Sunday afternoon and expected to hear something early the next week but was surprised to get an email response in a matter of a hour or so, thinking at the time this agent must be a worker. This would be the fourth condo I would have purchased since 2000 and never received a response from other agents that quickly. I provided her an extensive list of condos I would like to see in both areas, asked her for normal COA documentation and rental histories for two years, or more if available. She immediately went to work and contacted me the next day with a schedule and documentation for seeing the units over the next few days, I think a total of 12-15 in all. She was well organized, prepared and we wasted no time. I was able to narrow the list to about 4-5 prospects on this trip.

 

I came back home, went through my documentation, requested more information which she immediately provided. I returned the last of August for the purpose of making offers on some of the properties. She was very successful working my offers with listing agents and we had a property under contract before the end of August, with a closing date of mid September.

 

It was a pleasure working with her during this entire process. She is a professional and extremely good at her job. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for real estate in the area and have to friend that's working with her now on a condo. She has to be one of the best in the area in my book.

Last Summer we visited Gulf Shores and fell in love with the area.  We explored the option of buying a condo on the beach.  At this point we contacted Tracie Sweat.  She was so helpful in helping not only view the different condo options but she helps provide you with information that helps you make an informed decision.  Tracie tries to help you purchase what is best for you and not the realtor.
 
At this time we have slowed down on our search for a condo.  Tracie fully understood and didn’t pressure us to keep looking.  I fully expect that we will make a purchase in the future and I fully expect that Tracie Sweat will be the realtor that helps us accomplish our goals.

Tracie Sweat is an outstanding real estate agent. She was knowledgeable, professional, and readily available to answer our questions. She was very patient and customized the search to our needs. We would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a condo on the Gulf coast.

 

Sid & Jennifer Brevard

Tracie, we want to thank you for your time and professionalism in helping us to find a condo.  You and the folks at Remax took the time to listen to us and paid attention to what we were seeking. Not only did you  present us with a list of places based on our interest and needs; you showed us places we never would have thought of. The best part of working with you was the ease of the transactions that took place in the purchase of our new condo especially seeing how we were living in another state.  We not only found a great agent but also a great friend.

 Keep up the good work!

We just recently bought a home in Gulf Shores using Tracie Sweat as our agent.  It was a delight to work with her. She was quick to research and answer questions, always trying to get us the most accurate information possible to make a good decision. Tracie is well connected in the area, which was a great help when we needed to find contractors or general information about what was happening in the community. It was always easy to reach her and get prompt responses which made the process go very smoothly. With her help, we purchased a wonderful home out near Fort Morgan and look forward to making many wonderful memories at the beach.

Chuck and Laura King

Approximately 14 months ago I purchased a condo in Gulf Shores from Tracie & Ballard. They lined up several options which met the requirements I requested. Once the decision was made, we elected a short sale & spent many months of back & forth with the selling parties. They worked closely with me through the process & after many delays from the seller, we decided to go another route. I found another unit that I was interested in & they found an even better option, which we ended up purchasing.

I wish I could detail all of the extra effort that Tracie & Ballard put into not only the “deal”, but the efforts they made after we closed, which had absolutely nothing to do with buying or selling real estate. Even 13 months after the sale, I got help with Tracie on some furniture.

In closing I would highly recommend using Tracie & Ballard if you plan on purchasing a condo in their area. If I make another purchase, I will be using them.

Darren Bogan

I’m happy to share my thoughts about working with Tracie and Ballard. All real estate transactions have surprises, and managing buyer / seller expectations requires skill, knowledge, and experience. They exhibited all of these qualities and I can highly recommend them. Should I have any future needs in the area, they will be my first call.

William Thomas

What a pleasure it was working with Tracie Sweat to find my beach condo.  Finding that one special property is daunting enough and searching from another state is even worse. Tracie's professionalism and determination made the experience a true joy.  You are an invaluable asset for Re/Max Paradise.  I cannot begin to thank you enough and look forward to working with you in the future.

 

Heather Morris

Tracie Sweat helped us find the home of our dreams.  We had been looking for a place on the water for years without a realtor.  The first day of working with Tracie she was able to find us a great home on the water in our price range.  Tracie worked with us while John and I were both out of town in different states and got the contract accepted and signed by all before another offer was made.  She helped us with everything from the beginning of the process to the closing and we are forever grateful to her for her persistence and professionalism.  If you are looking for a realtor that is going to work for you to get the best deal and help you make the right choice then Tracie Sweat is the realtor for you! Forever grateful!!

 

Marci and John Watters

I would be very happy to give Ballard and Tracie Sweat my highest recommendation for anyone desiring to sell or buy property.  We were in the market for a condo on the coast of Alabama/Florida. We worked with them for approximately two months.  They were very friendly and pleasant to work with which meant a lot to us. Being that we are “Cajuns” from South Louisiana and are very outgoing and friendly people ourselves, it was really nice to work with “like minded” people .   They went above and beyond any expectations that we had.  We had a slight bump in the road at no fault to them and they were immediately on it and fixed the problem.

 

Missy Guidry & Jack Lane

We would like to let others know what a wonderful experience we had selling our home with the help of Tracie Sweat.  Getting the price right is the hardest part of listing your home for sale.  Tracie is very knowledgeable of the markets in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach.  She discussed everything with us and showed us her reasoning at setting the price.  She even helped us with a few tips that would show our home better. Her sales material is first class.  They have a professional photographer and webmaster and it shows.  Finally, she went the-extra-mile to get our home closed and sold.  We appreciate everything she has done and will definitely use her again.

Tracie did an excellent job selling our Condo! She is responsive, is knowledgeable of the market, and operates with integrity. She worked to make the process fast and easy for us. Thank you Tracie!

My name is Elaine Micire and I am writing a review about Tracie Sweat who was my agent
in purchasing my home. I was an out of state purchaser so I cannot tell you how helpful she was in this process. All the questions and back and forth communications were always up to date and promptly answered. This being a new experience she was great! I also had to rely on family here in Alabama to help and she was wonderful in accommodating them and their schedules in looking at homes for me and helping us all make this decision. It is obvious she is well educated in her field and her personality fits the job perfectly. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to work with her through your firm. You have a very valued employee.

Eliane Micire

Tracie is top notch. She listened to our needs and desires and then spent time researching a variety of properties to satisfy our needs. As we were coming from out of town, she provided detailed information in advance allowing us to refine our search plan before ever arriving in Orange Beach. She was there for us from showing properties, through closing, and even following up for months after. Tracie is my realtor for life.

"It was such a pleasure working with Tracie.  I immediately felt I could trust her and she made the whole condo shopping experience a blast!  She was patient and fun as she drove me up and down the beach on multiple trips searching for just the right unit, and her knowledge of the area and market was invaluable."

Thanks again Tracie!

Tracie,
We just wanted to recognize you for your amazing service you provided during the purchase of our condo at the Enclave. We generally find most real estate agents pushy and condescending. Your care free demeanor and bright personality made this one of the most pleasant real estate purchases we made. We were impressed by your knowledge of the area and with the various condo associations. Your recommendations regarding brokers, rental agents, local merchants, etc made this decision less complicated and each has provided stellar service.
To top it off, you have been available AFTER the sale to help with any questions or concerns. That makes you unique. Very few sales people will even return your call after the deal is signed and the transaction complete. Your willingness to be there for us both during and after this whole process should be applauded.
Tracie, thanks again for all you've done for us. Look forward to working with you in the future. You're awesome.
Sincerely
The Grahams
Mr. & Mrs. Graham
