Our agent was very responsive to our needs during the process and went beyond the call of duty on several occasions to help us sell our home. He was very good at keeping us up to date during the entire process and made our experience painless keeping our best interests in mind.
I would definitely use the Ginny Stoppa team again if needed.

John Madden responded quickly and showed the house we were interested in, in a timely manner. He was friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and respectful. I also liked the dotloop software (i.e., this allows signing of legal documents with your e-mail account).
Without a doubt, the most professional and knowledgeable realtor I have done business with in the area. John takes the time to do his research and thoroughly takes any guess work out of the process of buying or selling and I have utilized his services for both side of real estate I highly recommend him to anyone!!
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $100K in Daphne, AL.
I am originally from Foley, Alabama and was in town for Christmas with my wife to visit family when we found the house. We are both living in Los Angeles and had been largely put-off by the unpredictable and illogical market of the city, so we decided to drive by some houses around my home town one morning to see how they compared.
By chance John was the Realtor for all of the homes with which we had enough interest in to call for more information, and he promptly met us on location to show us around. I was impressed with his honesty and knowledge, he quickly realized exactly what we were looking for and steered us in the right direction. We found a house we loved, we made an offer, and it was accepted. John helped us through it all and did an outstanding job. The following are a few examples of work that he did that was especially helpful to me:
1. We had no Realtor working for us, and this was our first house. John was an extremely helpful resource to use even though he was working for the "other side". Had he not been as knowledgeable we might not have had the confidence to close without our own Realtor.
2. We wanted a termite bond from a larger, more reputable company than that which was currently covering the house. Since it wasn't a sticking item, John could have told us to arrange it ourselves, but he did the whole thing without a complaint. We are now covered by the company we wanted.
3. The AC in the house was old, and I was worried about it failing soon after purchasing the house. John had an inspector come to the house and conduct a thorough inspection on the AC unit. He wrote up a report, had the inspector sign it, and it became a part of the closing documents. This documentation eased my mind because it showed that the AC unit was working properly, and if it did fail it would help ensure it was covered under the home warranty.
4. We did not take the conventional financing route, and John was very knowledgeable about how our payment method would work and what needed to happen to make it go smoothly.
We closed on the house two weeks ago and already have it on the market to be rented. The entire process was so smooth it was scary. Thanks John for your help and I will be sending anyone looking for a home in Daphne your way!
Bought a home in 2014 in Malbis, Daphne, AL 36526.
From the day we first met to the day we close John was always helpful and responsive.
All our concerns and questions were answered in timely manner.
Though, we were divided by a few hundred miles his use of technology simplified the whole process of buying.
We are grateful to John for his efforts to find the right people to make the purchased property ready to move in.
HIGHLY reccomend to any home buyer.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $175K in Daphne, AL.
John was incredibly helpful in the whole home buying process. He found my perfect house and I got it for an amazing price. He is very knowledgeable with the detailed process of buying short sale and foreclosure homes. I would recommend him to everyone!
They were very helpful in locating - preview - and assisting us with the analysis of the return on investment dollars on many different investment properties before settling on the two properties we purchased. The best realtors we have ever worked with.
Ginny worked with us for 2 years on a very difficult sale of our home. She never gave in on the obstacles that were thrown her way. She and the Re/Max team are an amazing asset to have. I would enlist her help again in the future.
