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!
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.
Thank you so much for all of your help with our purchase of Tidewater 1201 in Orange Beach. We love it!
If you are looking for a realtor, Tracie is the BEST! My husband and I called her at 1:30 on Sunday afternoon to ask about some condos we saw online. We live in Austin, TX and only had that day and the next to shop. Tracie said to photo text her the condos we liked and she would work on getting the showings ready. We met her at 4:00 with 6-7 condos to look at. Without asking she even filtered through the ones that wouldn’t be a good purchase because of upcoming large HOA assessment fees (among other things) thus maximizing our time, value, and purchase. We were originally looking to buy in Florida and had never even been to Orange Beach. We were in a contract within 18 hours and ended up buying the one we met in. We closed in 30 days and we love it!!
Why would we recommend Tracie? Why would we NOT recommend Tracie!! She is efficient, organized, straight shooter, knowledgeable, expedient, helpful, and truly works for you. She helped us with connections to property management, bankers, mortgage companies, maintenance, decorators, furniture stores, consignment furniture stores (for that furniture you don’t want to keep), insurance, property inspector, and even mounting TVs. I’m sure there are some things we have forgotten! Tracie made purchasing real estate out of state a very pleasant experience. She is very quick with responses, stays on top of everything, is ahead of the game, and will be your best advocate ever. Even though we closed last week, Tracie continues to reach out and see what is needed and how she can be helpful. We would highly recommend Tracie as a realtor!! We would (and will if the opportunity arises) definitely use her again!!

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.
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.
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 purchased a beach condo at Phoenix West II in Orange Beach, AL with the help of our real estate agent Tracie Sweat, RE/MAX Paradise.
Looking back, the entire experience was so much fun! Everything went smoothly from the time we first saw Tracie’s name on a promotional map of condos in the beach area in the spring of 2015 even through today. As we look back closer at all that has transpired: all the properties we were shown, all the details involved in the negotiations, the purchase agreement, the referrals to insurance agencies, property inspectors, appraisers, utility transfers, title company to the actual closing and taking possession of the condo, it becomes vividly evident that there was someone working very hard in our behalf. That someone was Tracie Sweat! It was Tracie that made everything go so smoothly.She took care of everything. She was available to us day and night. She was extremely thorough communicating with us throughout the whole process.
Tracie Sweat is a true professional. You are most fortunate that she represents The Bob Shallow Team, RE/MAX Paradise. Tracie should be proud about the way she represents herself and the Real Estate Profession.
Have a great day!
A Happy Customer
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!!
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.
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.
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!
