Tracie was highly recommended by a friend, and after meeting her it is easy to see why. She was very professional in all of our dealings and was able to make the experience of buying a hone for the first time a relatively easy experience. She was also able to find incentives and discounts that saved me money in the long run. In addition, she was always available to answer my questions in a timely manner. 10/10
We can’t thank Tracie enough for everything she’s done for our family. My husband and I were nervous about selling our home and buying a new house at the same time but she made the process simple & enjoyable. She sold our house in less than a month! And she was never too busy and made us feel important.
Thank You Tracie!
Taylor & David
Tracie is not only a top-notch realtor, but she is a great person! I am so thankful she was our agent. The knowledge she has when it comes to real estate is unmatched and put us at ease with every decision. Thank you, Tracie, for such a great home buying experience.
You're The Best Ever!
April & Brent Miller
As first-time home buyers, working with Tracie was the best decision we could have made.

We always knew that she had our best interest at the forefront of her mind, which allowed us to rest easy and enjoy the experience of being first-time home buyers. We love our new home, and we are so grateful to have worked with Tracie to make it a reality!

"Tracie was absolutely awesome to work with! She was extremely personable and very timely in communicating with us. We were moving from Ohio, and needed to find a place quickly. She walked us through the process, and intricacies of purchasing a home from out of state. We highly recommend Tracie Sweat to anyone looking to buy or sell on the Eastern Shore!" Jon & Kristy
Tracie made this experience so pleasurable. Having bought a property out of town she was great to keep us all informed and in the loop throughout the closing process. She was a pleasure to work with and has gone above our expectations as an agent.
Tracie went above and beyond in the excellence she demonstrated in helping us purchase our beach home. She worked with such professionalism and tirelessly in finding the right beach home to meet all our needs. . She was a terrific communicator and ALWAYS available to answer any questions and concerns. Her bubbly and friendly attitude made working with her pleasant and enjoyable . She never pressured us about purchasing any particular property . She was encouraging and very committed that she would do her upmost in finding us a place, no matter how much time it required of her . She also provided us with names of persons in the local area that would be beneficial to us as well. I highly recommend her and believe she is an excellent realtor! I felt we not only bought our beach home ... a dream come true ! but that we made a lifelong friend!
Tracie has been very professional and always listened to details my wife and I were looking for in our first home. There were multiple houses we thought we wanted but due to unforeseeable issues had to back out on. Traci stuck with us never complaining or showing signs of irritation and always encouraging us through the entire process. I highly recommend her if you are seeking assistance with buying your first home.
Working with Tracie is wonderful, she is like your best friend taking you to see exactly what you’re looking for to purchase. She listens, learns your style, & knows exactly how to not waste your time. Very professional.

At Your Service,

Tracie helped us find our summer RV property in the area we wanted. She knows the area well and helped us secure the property . I would recommend for anyone looking to purchase or sell a property in the Spanish Cove community to contact Tracie. Thank you Tracie
Tracie was fantastic! She made purchasing a hope fun and exciting. She responded with any questions we had quickly and efficiently. I would highly recommend contacting Tracie for any of your home buying or selling needs.
Tracie was very patient with us even though we changed our minds once a week. She tried her best to take away as much stress from us as possible. She was great!
Working with Tracie has been the best experience I have ever had working with a real estate agent. Without Tracie I am not sure it would have ever happened. First, Tracie took her time with us to make sure we saw every possible Condo before we purchased to ensure that we knew we had the right home for us. Once we found it we unfortunately went with a big bank who drug their feet and lost our paperwork. Tracie not only called the bank but called them everyday to keep them on track once she saw that they had made a couple mistakes. Tracie worked day and night getting everything together that bank needed and on time so that we would not go in breach of contract with the sellers. Tracie worked so hard and truthfully she worked harder than the bank ever did. My family and I could not be more grateful that Tracie came into our lives. Not only is Tracie our real estate agent for life for my entire family but she will be a life long friend who I trust and admire.
Gulf Shores, AL
Tracie was always punctual, professional and very organized! She was so helpful in both the sale of our home and the purchase of our new one! She made the process smooth and kept us updated every step of the way! I would highly recommend her to any of my friends and family !! She was fantastic!
We have worked with Tracie Sweat multiple times to buy and sell homes in the Gulf Shores area. She is professional, responsive, and hard working. Tracie routinely goes the extra mile for her clients!

Tracie is the best agent we have worked with and has helped us buy and sell several properties. She is not only a true professional and keeps everyone on track with attention to details, she is also a super kind and friendly person that makes the whole process easier for everyone. I highly recommend working with her!

Bought and Sold property in Gulf Shores & Orange Beach with Tracie Sweat
I Could Not Have Done this without Tracie. She is incredible and a miracle worker!!! So thankful to have had her as my realtor! Above and beyond since day one.
Gulf Shores, AL
Our whole experience in the home buying and selling process was made so much easier because of Tracie she was on top of everything the entire time and made it such an easy transaction can’t recommend her enough!!
Thank You Tracie!
Bought and Sold a home with Tracie in Loxley and Daphne, AL
I had a great experience working with Tracie! I felt like we were instant friends! She was very down to earth, comfortable to talk to and she was honest and knowledgeable about everything she knew about the area and the particular properties we viewed. She stayed in regular contact with us and worked hard to keep us informed and involved. She was truly an answered prayer!
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.Randy Smith
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 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 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!
"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 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.
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.

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
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.SincerelyThe Grahams
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,Alan and Diana Reed
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.
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!!
Carol & Archie
I want to thank you for making the process of selling our house so easy! Selling a house For Sell by Owner was a much more difficult task that we imagined, especially in such a hot market. Fielding phone calls and showings to people who we ultimately found out were not ready to buy (wasting time) made the process incredibly draining. But fortunately, along came you with some amazing buyers who were qualified and ready to purchase. From our first meeting you were always very warm, professional and accessible. You never made us feel awkward for being FSBO and were very helpful if we had questions. Thank you so much for making the process from showing to closing an easy, pleasant transaction.Lynn Knighton
It has been an absolute pleasure working with Tracie Sweat. She has been our agent on the sale of our primary residence, purchase of new home and sale of land. We've had such a fantastic experience with her. She is extremely professional, works tirelessly for you and truly puts her clients' needs first. We highly recommend her to anyone.
