What do Clients Say?

We have had the privilege of working with Shannon Holmes for the past year. The listing of our home was interrupted many times due to the Covid difficulties in building our new residence. Shannon was extremely patient with us and co-operated in every way. She was very professional and arranged for a beautiful video, color photo and numerous exposure of our property. The result was, when we were finally ready, the home sold in 4 days. We highly recommend her expertise in the sale of your residence. Chuck and Geri Frusterio

I have known Shannon and Gerry Holmes for many years and knew that I could trust Shannon to be my agent. She spent many hours advising and touring homes with me and I could not have been more pleased with her knowledge and expertise of the market. I also asked her be my listing agent for a lot in the Greystone community that I have for sale and she went over and above in marketing it for me. Shannon answered any questions or concerns that I had and made me feel totally at ease throughout the entire process. Even closing was a breeze as she handled all the details ahead of time. I would HIGHLY recommend the "Holmes" team for all your real estate needs! - Kelli Beard

We had an amazing home buying experience with Shannon Holmes and Realty South! Leaving active duty and expecting twins we were in a whirlwind of life change when looking for a home to buy in Birmingham. Shannon worked tirelessly to find us the perfect house, at a great price, in the exact area we wanted… in one weekend!! Her years of experience in the field and her in depth knowledge of the home buying process was evident from our first conversation and was crucial throughout the process. She was always available for any questions we had and was extremely prompt in her response to emails and texts. She has my strongest recommendation to those looking to buy a home in the Birmingham area. Cason and Shelley Roberson

My family relocated to Birmingham from Seattle. Having never visited the city before, given a four day weekend to find a home by my husband’s company and uprooting four kids in three different schools (elementary, middle and high school), I was overwhelmed and anxious. Finding Shannon online was a Godsend. Her website provided me with detailed neighborhood overviews, school reviews, and let me know she was a Birmingham expert (raised here!). Shannon planned a busy weekend of house hunting, streamlined my online finds to make certain we weren’t viewing houses that didn’t meet my “must haves” based on her deep knowledge of the housing market. She helped us narrow down school districts based on my kids athletic and academic needs. Shannon even took us to view the different schools so I could put my mind at ease. If all of that wasn’t enough, Shannon seeing our hesitation on the homes we narrowed our choices to, found us a house that wasn’t quite listed yet but knew was coming in market. It was perfect! We had to go to contract by 2 pm on Sunday to catch our flight back to Seattle. I got on the plane knowing the home my children would move into, the schools they would be attending and fell in love with Birmingham because of Shannon. I cannot recommend Shannon more highly. She will find you the perfect home and negotiate an amazing deal. I have no doubt if you need a listing agent that Shannon would aggressively sell your home. Her marketing is so complete I found her from 3,000 miles away! Carol and Chris Bevil, Greystone Subdivision, Hoover, Alabama
