Due to my career, I have lived in many, many places. Consequently, my wife and I have used numerous realtors. This is the first time in over 30 plus years of moving that we have made a specific effort to provide very positive feedback on our realtor. So if you are reading this, please understand that Lisa Hilton is the VERY best realtor that we have ever known. Lisa went above and beyond to ensure that our home was presented very professionally, worked diligently on all offers, and kept us informed every step of the way. I must point out that during part of the time, we were overseas and she adjusted her day so that we could stay on top of everything with our different time zones. I don’t want to ramble on and on, but I had to let everyone that is looking for a SUPERB, CONCERNED, and PROFESSIONAL realtor, that Lisa Hilton of Opie Balch Realty is definitely the one you should use!

“We are so grateful to you for all that you did to sell our house. As I recall at our first meeting, you said that football season is the hardest time to sell a house but that you would try. So we were prepared for months on the market, and even the prospect of renting instead of selling. Much to our surprise you found a buyer in just nine days – multiple offers even. WOWZA!!! Then you helped us thru the selling process from beginning to end, even thru the busy holiday season. Thank you so much and warmest regards”

“Phil and I just wanted to say thanks to Lisa Hilton and Opie Balch Realty for being there through the process of finding our perfect home and selling our land in Athens. Lisa worked tirelessly to find just the right place for us and to find a buyer for our land. She made sure we didn’t make mistakes that could have been costly. And last but not least she endured our uncertainty with a smile and helpful comments. Also, thanks to Opie for introducing us to Lisa and for answering any questions that we had that required her vast experience. We came away with a new house and new friends.”

We had the pleasure of working with Ashley Blackwell at Opie Balch Realty during my job relocation from Annapolis, MD to Madison, AL. Throughout the search and selection process, Ashley was attentive to our unique family needs and provided value-added assistance, advice, and counsel as we searched for just the right home. Ashley understood the current real estate market and expertly helped us navigate the real estate process. She was knowledgeable of the areas of our search and actively listened as we expressed our needs and desires. She made herself available day or night to patiently answer our many questions and provide direction throughout the process. She was always professional in her manner, courteous in her demeanor, and focused in her efforts on our behalf. Even more importantly, Ashley made us feel valued as clients and as friends. It is rare these days to find dedicated and conscientious individuals like Ashley, who strive to make service excellence, client focus, and customer satisfaction, more than just clichés. We are happy to say not only did we find a great Real Estate Agent in Ashley, but a friend. We highly recommend Ashley Blackwell and the Opie Balch Realty Team to anyone seeking an experienced professional to guide them through the home-buying process.

The Opie Balch Realty team has done a fantastic job in helping me purchase and rent two homes. They are hard working and always willing to go the extra mile to make sure everything runs as smoothly as possible. They make themselves available at all hours of the day if any questions/ issues arise and are quick to reply to emails and missed calls. They are trustworthy, look out for the best interest of their clients, and provide invaluable information to help you make an informed decision about your purchase. I would and already have recommended them to friends and family. If I were to move again, I would not hesitate to call on Opie Balch Realty to handle the buying/selling of my home.

“A Huge Thank You to the best Realtor in Madison, Alabama. Her name is Opie Balch . Opie just closed our house in Madison, Alabama. We were unable to be there but she did everything for us so I would not have to worry about anything. I have known Opie for over 12 years and there is no other realtor that I trust to keep my best interests in mind. She is fair, honest and someone that I kept on speed dial If ever I needed help with selling, buying and renting. (I did all 3 multiple times). I am not a realtor and I have no other ties to Elbert and Opie Balch but they are folks that I would not hesitate at anytime going to if I wanted advice or help with real estate. I only wish that we had Opie and Elbert everywhere we moved to. Thank you again Opie and Elbert, you were truly a blessing that I wish everyone had the opportunity to know.”
