We worked with Jamie Taylor from Southern Family Realty and cant be more pleased. She was always available even at odd hours and walked us through the entire process. This was our first home purchase and she was able to answer and explain all of the questions we had. I can't recommend her enough! Even a month after the closing we had a minor issue with the house and she was able to point me in the right direction in getting it resolved. Thanks again Jamie!!
Bought a Townhouse home in 2013 in Starkville, MS.
Southern Family & Associates Realty was outstandingly helpful and very knowledgeable. Being a first-time Homebuyer I had no idea of most of the steps involved in the process of obtaining a mortgage loan. Jamie Taylor, an associate at Southern Family & Associates Realty, helped me through. She has wonderful negotiation skills and communicated very well with the lender to make sure every step was taken care of. She also offered me with wonderful advice on what to do next. I would highly recommend.
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 in Columbus, MS.
Southern Family Realty was very professional and we were very pleased and thankful to do business with them. We have used other real estate agencies in the past, but none of them gave the customer service like we wanted until our agent at Southern Family Realty. Highly Recommend doing business with them.
Barbara was very helpful in helping us prepare our house to show and did a great job of listing the house. She used the online listings and promoted the house through the local market. The housing market was slow but she continued to have open house to show the property. We were out of town for an extended time and Barbara and her associates at South Family made sure the property was shown and kept secure. When there was an offer on the house Barbara was very helpful in helping us get a contract that was acceptable to both parties.
All the way through Barbara was there to help us and gave us advice when we needed it. She encouraged us and helped to have a great experience.
Barbara was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. This was the first time I bought a house on my own so I was nervous about it. Barbara took me through the process step by step and made it seem easy. She took time to answer all my questions. She suggested that I start with a low bid which, as it turned out, the owner accepted. She recommended that I have a home inspection done. I was glad I did this. My home passed the inspection and I had peace of mind about going forward with the sale. Barbara also helped me find a lender who turned out to be a great fit. I love my new home and want to thank Barbara for all her help in making this possible.
