Moving to Mobile, Alabama?

Did you know that around 26% of the population in our area is not from Mobile? Think about your neighbors, especially if you live in a subdivision. We've got folks from California, Wisconsin, Mississippi, and Puerto Rico on our street! After moving from Louisiana, it dawned on me that so many people needed to help them make hometown connections with local people. This week I am going to focus on some of the services you might be searching for if you are moving here!

One of the first services you'll need is the help of a real estate professional. I've got a dynamic team that is ready to help! Karen Singleton & Marcile Sims own Synergy Realty Group. These ladies know the Gulf Coast and are ready to help you find the perfect home.

One of the first things they do is spend time listening to what is important to you. They'll find out if you have children so they can guide you to great school districts. Do you need a garage, a pool or a fenced in yard?

It is so important to them to find the right place for you to call home. I encourage you to give them a call and chat. They are more than agents, they will become your friend and a valuable resource.
