What Our Clients Have to Say 

"It was an amazing experience. It all happened quickly which is what I needed to happen. Gary and Nancy are the best in the business and I will use them from now on as well as recommend them. Even after the sell they have stayed involved to make sure I am happy. Clearly they know what the Client  Experience is all about." -- J. Elliott  

 "Gary and Nancy are both very professional and patient. Anytime that we had questions, they responded in a timely manner. If they didn't have the answer, they made sure to quickly find the answer. By being first time homebuyers, there were some things that we didn't understand. Nancy and Gary were  there by our side through the entire journey to make sure that we understood the process. At times, I would get a little frustrated but Nancy always found a way to keep me calm. They are both great people to work with and we look forward to working with them again in the future. -- C. & K. Mitchell

"Gary and Nancy were more than helpful in selling my house. They went overboard in advising and providing advice on what I should do to attract prospects to look at the house. I would recommend the DeLamars to anyone looking for professionalism in home sales. " -- D. Englebert

"Very honest and trustworthy people. They will give you their honest opinion on every house and are not pushy to get you to close. Always quick to respond even when it is after-hours. They are a pleasure to work with." -- D. Maharey

"We've used the DeLamars to buy and sell both of our houses. Selling this last one turned out to be... challenging. But Gary and Nancy helped us navigate every bit of it, and it all (finally) went swimmingly. We highly recommend their services." -- J. Hardin

"Gary and Nancy are a great team to work with! From the evening my husband called Nancy for the very first time, she was attentive, and patient as we made the decision to move to Helena, AL. Having a perfectionist personality during the home buying process made it very easy for me to stress, but  Nancy was always a quick text or call away and immediately alleviated all issues. During our first walk and final inspections, Gary was amazing at pointing out the builder’s flaws and problems we would need to have rectified before closing. Many of these things my husband and I would not have noticed, but Gary arrived before we did and had already started whipping out the blue tape! I would recommend this team a hundred times over and will be forever appreciative of all of their hard work, professionalism, and listening ears that were provided to my family during such an important time in our lives." -- M. & R. Rice

"Nancy and Gary were great to work with in selling my home. They provided very useful recommendations regarding both getting my home ready for sale and responding to input from potential buyers. They were always responsive to my emails and text messages. A very nice couple/team to work with." -- M. Murray

"I cannot say enough good things about the DeLamars. Gary and Nancy were such a huge help in selling our home. Their knowledge of the area and of the market were obvious and reassuring and their advice was always spot on. When unforseen complications came about (as they almost always do when buying  or selling a home), their knowledge and experience helped us to sail through a potentially difficult situation with ease. I'm incredibly satisfied with the work they did did in helping us sell our home and would recommend them to my closest friends and family with zero reservations." -- E. Hardin

"Nancy & Gary were a pleasure to work with. We met them at an open house several years before we were ready to move into the Oak Mtn school district. Nancy kept us informed of properties and market trends during the 1 1/2 years we were in contact before deciding to actively search for a new home.  Once we were ready, they promptly got us in each house we wanted to see. Nancy & Gary were more than our realtors, they were family during the process. They were quick to provide factual information and point out things we might overlook. When it came time to sell our home after going under contract on our new home, they had multiple offers the first day it was on the market. Knowing they were a text, call or email away was reassuring. They made buying and selling during a global pandemic as stress free as possible. We highly recommend them. You won’t regret working with the DeLamar’s." -- A. Thomas

"Working with Gary and Nancy on our first home sale was the best experience ever! They were very kind, selfless, thoughtful and attentive to our needs. They did a thorough assessment prior to our listing and we were under contract on the first day thanks to their excellent groundwork and negotiation  skills. Subsequently, they were great advocates and guided us as we navigated every issue prior to a successful closing. I would highly recommend this wonderful team to anyone looking to sell their home for a competitive price." -- C. & C. Ndibe

"Gary and Nancy are both very knowledgeable and spent a great deal of time with us to help us find a new home. They were always available to answer any question and guide us along the way. Thank y’all so much!" -- R. Brackett

"Gary and Nancy were so patient with us and really listened to what we wanted and helped guide us in making the perfect purchase! They were always available whenever we had questions and helped every step of the way."  - G. & T. Beasley

"Met Gary back in 2006. He helped us buy our home in Alabaster. Twelve years later he and Nancy helped us sell that home and find our “happily ever after” home in Wilsonville. Their knowledge, experience and expertise in real estate make buying/selling an easy transition. Gary & Nancy are great to work with...they’re like family to us"  - S. & R. Toxey

"It was a great pleasure working with them. I enjoy them so much. They were so knowledgeable about a lot of things. If they didn't know, they would find the answer right away. I would recommend them to everyone whose buying a home."   - B. Mahan

"The DeLamar’s are an awesome team! They were so patient helping us find a home to downsize to. Their knowledge of the market in our area made getting our house ready to sell easy. The house sold quickly thanks to them ."   - M. & J. Jarrell

 "Nancy and Gary DeLamar helped me price and stage my home so it sold with multiples offers in days. We looked at many houses for weeks. Gary was helping me look for a home for my family’s particular requirements. He would point out why the house we were viewing was not the right one. He would say, “Keep looking”. Nancy would send me new listings daily and always available. Nancy and Gary found the perfect home for us. They walked me through the contracts and closing process by keeping me informed and calm. They were looking for a home for my family, not just buying and selling houses. I highly recommend them. Nancy and Gary are a dynamic Duo." - J. Purse

 "Gary and Nancy's personal and expert advice guided us to our dream/retirement home. I highly recommend their services if you desire a hands on approach from the start of your journey to closing."  - W. Maben

"Gary and Nancy were wonderful to work with. They listened to our needs in a new home and delivered. Both Gary and Nancy were very responsive to us and worked doggedly to get us answers about the properties we were interested in. They showed the same determination during the negotiation and closing processes on the home we sold and on the home we purchased. We actually used Gary to buy our first home 13 years ago. I have recommended them to several friends and we, too, will use them again if the opportunity arises."  - M. & C. Heatherly

"Gary & Nancy are the best! We had recently moved to the Birmingham area from Texas and were renting when we started our home search. They showed us countless houses/condos/land because we couldn't make up our silly minds and they did it all with a smile on their face. Gary was great about checking  on any listing I threw at him any time. It was a wonderful experience working with this lovely couple and I would do it again (but hopefully won't have to :-P)!!! Thank you Gary & Nancy!!" -- E. & J. Kilpatrick

"Gary is truly a man of character! We worked with Gary for several years!"  - L.A. Walls

"We worked with Gary shortly before Nancy joined him. He listened closely to our needs and wants, answered question after question after question with patience and understanding, pointed out potential issues or problems that we may have overlooked without his practiced eye, and just plain stuck with us from the first house viewing in July to the closing in November. I think we most appreciated that he was never in a hurry or seemingly pressed for time. We know he was working with other clients at the same time, but he did a great job of making us feel like the only ones. We highly recommend Gary, and we can only think that having Nancy included in the deal must be a sweet bonus!"   - J. & S. Smith

 "Gary and Nancy became more like family. They still check on us and offer advice with anything home related. If you're looking for a home, be sure to contact the DeLamars!"  - K. Croyle

 "Gary,  Thank you for everything!  I had the best experience working with Gary as my realtor. I transitioned back to the Birmingham area after 27 years and wasn't sure about what I wanted or what I needed in a home. Gary, sat with me and helped me to compile a list of my wants and needs. Wow, did he deliver!  He was able to find the perfect home for me and my family. If you're looking for a realtor that cares about your wants, but more importantly your needs...Go with the man that cares...Gary DeLamar!!!" - D. Reese 

"We had the pleasure of working with Gary DeLamar for the purchase of our first home! He was so attentive to our needs, very patient and always available when we had a question. He is also personable and wonderful to work with. Gary listened to all of the details that we wanted in a home and not once tried to push a home onto us that did not meet our criteria. He would provide his personal opinion during the process which helped us see more long term when selecting a home.  I would definitely recommend you to anyone looking to buy a home".  - J. & B. Gadilhe 

"I was very impressed with all that Gary did. he covered every thing. he made sure nothing was left undone. when I closed on buying my home, he had made sure that all I had to was sign the papers with a home warranty included. thank you Gary I will use you again"   - J. Garner

"Gary is the best!! His goal is for you to find the house that is right for you. I lost count of the houses he showed my family and he never got frustrated...just continued to say, "we WILL find the house for you." All the crazy paperwork with the sale and buying a house was made super easy by Gary. He is a great and honest person and realtor. "  - E. Underwood 

"We can not say enough about how easy and stress-free our home buying experience was with Gary. His dedication, responsiveness, knowledge and caring attitude put us at ease and helped us find the exact home we wanted. Gary is a truly one of the best."  - C. O'Rear

"I can’t say enough about how helpful Gary was when I was looking to purchase a home. From day one he worked untold hours to research properties of interest, quickly schedule showings and answered every question I threw in his direction. As a first time home owner, I had a lot of questions! His knowledge of real estate and the home ownership process is phenomenal. He stayed engaged through every step to closing and beyond. He’s been there for me after the contracts were signed and commission checks cut. Now what really, really sets him apart is a level of transparency you won’t find anywhere else. Gary is honest, professional and ethical first and foremost. Homeownership is a life changing experience and I wanted it to be exciting, fun and enjoyable. We worked together to make it so and were ready for closing 3 weeks ahead of schedule. I got the home that is perfect for me and have Gary to thank for bringing such joy to our lives."  L. Gordon

"Words can't express our gratitude of your professionalism and dedication to us during this process. I know I wasn't the easiest guy to work with and appreciate your flexibility. We finally got around to getting a bite to eat and read your card tonight. Thank you so much for the kind words and gift card, it means a lot and certainly wasn't necessary. You know where we live, you are welcome anytime."  - R. & J. Deaton

"My wife and I want to thank you for all your help with finding us the perfect home for us. You were with us every step of the way during this very important process. Your patience, consistency and endurance were greatly appreciated and I would recommend you to my mother and that's saying a lot. Wishing you the best"  - W. & T. Buxton

"About 3 1/2 years ago, we were looking to buy a house and Gary was recommended to us. As first time homebuyers we had no idea what we were to doing, but Gary guided us through every step of the way, showing that our best interest was at heart. He was so friendly and efficient in finding us a perfect home for our little growing family. The process was so smooth and easy thanks to Gary. After living there for 3 years, we had the pleasure of working with Gary again. Due to a job transfer out of state and a second baby on the way, we needed to sell our home and sell it quickly. Again he walked us through the process and gave us pointers on making our house sellable. Thanks to Gary our house was listed, under contract, and sold within a month. I would absolutely recommend anyone moving in the Birmingham area to work with Gary. He is genuine, honest, hard-working, and absolutely who I would chose and recommend to buy and sell homes!"  - A. & B. Shanahan

"As a first-time home buyer, I was nervous about stepping into the real estate market but Gary guided me through the process with ease. Willing to answer numerous questions and arrange showings, Gary was always there to help me and made me feel that my search for the perfect home was just as important to him as it was to me. He also gave me valuable insight and advice for the home buying process based on his years of experience, which greatly helped with my search. Thanks to Gary and his diligent efforts, I now have the perfect home for me. I cannot recommend Gary enough!" 

- B. Bassham

"I was a first time home buyer primarily looking at foreclosures. Gary was very patient with me and always answered all my questions thoroughly. He was always prompt to get back to me whether I texted, called or e-mailed him. He took great care of me throughout the entire home buying process. He treated me like I was his only client, adjusting his schedule to fit my needs!  Gary really stayed on top of things.  I will be referring him to friends and family in the future!"  - H. Austin

"After looking for homes myself in newspapers, magazines, and online, I felt like most of the type of properties I was looking for were difficult to find.  Thanks to Gary's spending the extra time with me to narrow down the price range, area, and type of property I wanted, the rest was easy.  Gary sent me online listings of houses that fit my criteria, so I could pick and choose with the click of a mouse".  - M. Dickerson

 "I moved to the Birmingham area a little over three years ago with my wife and daughter, who is now nine. After transferring with a large retail corporation, we moved into an apartment upon our arrival from west Mississippi and lived there for three years without learning much about the surrounding area. Once we decided to buy a house, we contacted a "lender recommended" agent to house search. After three weeks and not having even met "our agent”, we ventured off on our own to find a house. We found a house having an open house that we were interested in and stopped to look. Gary was the onsite agent who gladly showed us the house, inside and out. Gary spent about three hours with us that day and covered everything from the house to our finances and desires. He provided us with listings that were not even his to try and find the "right fit" as he called it. Gary said, "I deal with a house from several weeks to a couple of months, you have to be happy for a lifetime". This was prior to us having any kind of commitment with Gary and I was very moved. We told Gary that we were interested in his listed house and asked that he represent us in a dual role, acting on our behalf as well as the sellers. We could not have been happier with the results. It is a true pleasure to "hire" an agent for a couple of months, yet gain a friend for life".  - J. & D. Harris

"I thoroughly enjoyed working with Gary on my house sale and also the purchase of my new house.  Both transactions went so smoothly, due to Gary's attention to details, knowledge and dedication to me as a client.  I would highly recommend Gary to anyone that is looking to sell or purchase real estate".  - B. Evans

 "Gary will work with tireless enthusiasm to find you the perfect home.  We not only built a great business relationship, we also found a wonderful friend". - T. & W. Vining

"House buying can be a little stressful, especially when it is your first.  Working with Gary definitely made this process a lot easier for us.  He went above and beyond the call of duty for us, often working beyond business hours to make sure we found the perfect home.   All of our questions and concerns we promptly addressed, relieving much of our anxiety.  We love our new home, and will not work with anyone else when it is time to buy again". - S. & J. Langston

"We were lucky to have Gary as our agent.  His attention to the detail is exceptional, always willing to go the extra mile to help us. With his friendly and easygoing attitude (no pressure) and good sense of humor made the stressful process of buying a house much easier, but above all Gary is dependable, honest, straight forward and professional.  Gary spoiled us, so when time comes to buy/sell again we won't work with anybody else."

Gary helped tremendously within a short period of time. He helped us refine and focus our search. He looked out for our best interests by directing us away from properties that could pose a danger or risk to our family. Better yet - he insisted we stay within our budget!! Gary was a healthy asset to our search and we are very appreciative of his attitude, insight and work ethic."  - B. & C. Lenoir

"My wife and I were searching for our first house and accidentally came across Gary’s number.  We called not knowing what to expect since we had never bought a house before or used an agent. Gary was so helpful and made our first house buying experience an awesome one. He met with us whenever we needed to talk and explained to us every step of the process so we would not be confused or lost. He looked out for our best interest and got us a great deal on our 1st house. He made the deal complete by sitting with us through the closing and then even gave us a gift card to buy some furnishings for our new home. I also loved the fact that Gary is an Auburn man and I was comfortable knowing that I was buying a house with the help of someone I knew I could trust. It was a great experience! War Eagle!” - H. & M. Craig

"Gary DeLamar, an uncommon name for an uncommon person.  The service that I received during my home buying experience was refreshing.  My agent, Mr. DeLamar, was available to answer questions and meet with me on short notice.  He gave me honest feedback, great recommendations and did not pressure me into buying the most expensive house but a house that would make the best home for me.  I would highly recommend Gary to my friends and family that are in need of a Realtor."   - C. Maddox

- E & A Carter

"Gary DeLamar was so impressive in our home buying experience. He didn't try to sell us things that were over our head just to make a sale. He was honest, straightforward and very educated in the home buying process. Throughout the long and sometimes exhausting home buying process he kept us updated, excited and was always on call to answer our questions. We became good friends with this man and recommend him to any family looking for their dream home. We finally got ours and owe it all to our GREAT realtor! Thank you Gary!"  - S. & J. Johnson

"We had the pleasure of working with Gary DeLamar as our agent in our relocation process from Atlanta to Birmingham and were very pleased with his willingness to work with us to find a home that was right for our family."  - W. & L. Pearce

We have learned so much from him and would recommend him to anyone looking for a home."  - C. & S. Bailey

"My daughter and I were buying a house together which would be her home.  Gary showed us several homes.  He had all the pertinent information on each home and pointed out the good things as well as the possible drawbacks.  He was very attuned to our needs and wants and we both appreciated his total honesty.  When we found the home we wanted, he worked very hard to make the closing as easy as possible for both of us.  He even went so far as to tell us both that he felt this was the right house for my daughter.  I found him to be a genuinely nice person, very dedicated to his position as our agent and more than willing to go the extra mile for us.  I would highly recommend him to anyone I knew who is house shopping.  I think he is great!"   - B. LaRiviere
