I first met Shelli through our mutual interest and passion in helping save the sea turtles and a friendship began. I chose Shelli to become my realtor because of her knowledge of the area and her drive and energy level. She is like the energizer bunny! She really listens to your wants and concerns and will go above and beyond to ease the house hunting process. Shelli Chambley helped me find my new home and I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting to buy or sell a home.

Couldn't possibly be happier with the excellent service provided both in selling our condo and the purchase of our new home. Being over 5 hours away made it difficult to be on site for various things that we were needed for, Gary and his staff were on the spot taking care of every single one for us without hesitation. I would most definitely recommend Gary and Shelli for all your selling and buying needs.

Shelli was simply the best agent we could have asked for! She was more than accommodating and willing to meet us around our schedule, which was a huge help. Shelli also went above and beyond getting us the best deal possible while staying under our budget. I highly recommend Shelli and am certain we will use her again in the future.

From our first meeting, Shelli was absolutely incredible. She responded to an inquiry I'd made on a property and opened her schedule to show the property on a Saturday morning. We spent several weekends and even week nights after work running around town (in the dark, at times!) to look at houses in hopes that I could find a home that I loved and move in prior to my apartment's lease expiring. She was sensitive to my need and understood the timeline that I was working on. Shelli was always available to answer any questions that I had, and I really felt that she went to bat for me when it came time to negotiate my contract. She asked me what I wanted and ensured that my seller delivered! She was my BEST resource during the entire home buying process, and when I had a question, I knew Shelli could find the answer for me. I could not have imagined working with a more compassionate, GENUINE, knowledgable and personable realtor to purchase my first home. Shelli is awesome!

The Gilpins did an outstanding job helping us purchase our home. From the time we viewed the home to closing they were our advocates. We would highly recommend them to anyone considering buying real estate in lower Alabama.

Gary and Kay Gilpin are the most professional and hardworking real estate expert agents that we have ever worked with to buy a home. Gary continued to follow up on everything involved in the settlement process and expedited our bank and underwriting process to ensure we could have settlement when we were promised. He took care of everything and then some! He is an excellent agent and we would highly recommend him for anyone buying or selling a home. Kay and Gary work hand in hand to get the job done. They both work tirelessly together to ensure the family is totally satisfied and the job is done!

My husband and I were purchasing a condo during the BP Oilspill time period. Kay was honest and helpful with us during the entire process. We were initially looking for a small 2/2 condo, and were fortunate, only through her diligent efforts, able to find a 3/2 Penthouse that was beyond what we thought was possible. She was in contact with other realtors, and seems to know everyone in the area. She is called upon for advice as well as as knowledge in the area and what is available, coming available or even a possible sale. We enjoyed working with her through the mortgage process, and we were definitely not the easiest to be approved since my husband had just retired and I was self-employed. She directed us to good restaurants, and also to local vendors when the time came to make some repairs and replacements in the condo. We could not be happier. She is unique in a field of realtors who sometimes can get caught up in the commissions, and we never felt that way with Kay. It was about us being happy and having a stress free experience during our purchase. She is reliable, and came most highly recommended from another realtor. We were more than satisfied with the services, and have in fact recommended her to several of our friends looking for rental property. Her efforts and integrity are consistant. She is a gem in the real estate industry!

To date, I have worked with Kay to purchase 5 independent properties. Kay takes customer service to a new level. She will absolutely do what it takes to service and protect her clients. She clearly understands the Gulf Coast market and the ever changing dynamics in this economy. A knowledgeable realtor is a critical choice to insure success in this environment.

Kay is a wonderful person who is, among other excellent traits, a great listener and negotiator. Her connections along the Alabama / Florida Gulf Coast are impeccable. She has helped me close multiple transactions valued at well over 1 million dollars. Without her, my confidence in working real estate transactions would be risky at best.

Kay Gilpin is every realty client's dream realtor. She worked extremely hard to get our condo property sold. She put herself out, over and above what you would normally expect. She is knowledgable and efficient and a bulli-dog about follow up with mortgage banks and title companies. We could not have been more pleased with our experience in working with her.
