Ann Allen

Born and raised in the Birmingham area, Ann can't imagine a better place for her family to live, and she loves helping others make their home here too. She and her husband, Mike, have 4 children and 4 grandchildren and are pleased they live nearby so they get to spend lots of time with them. Ann began her real estate career in 2006 after 30 years in the accounting industry. Her love and knowledge of the area and financial background allow her to offer keen insight into the market and valuable investment advice to those thinking of buying or selling a home here. She truly understands that a real estate purchase or sale is the biggest investment many of her clients will ever make, and she is passionate about helping them establish a strong and secure financial future.

When she's not buying and selling homes, Ann enjoys traveling, gardening, sewing and all kinds of craft projects, but what she loves most of all is spending time with family. Ann and Mike are active members of First United Methodist Church in Downtown Birmingham where they enjoy singing in the Chancel Choir. They both love to see the revitalization of the downtown area.......Birmingham is getting national attention as a great place to live!

Ann currently lives in Pelham, but she was raised in Mountain Brook and spent many years living in Trussville so she knows these areas and those surrounding them very well. Most of the time Ann works in Jefferson and Shelby Counties, but she also serves buyers and sellers in parts of St. Clair, Blount and Tuscaloosa Counties.

    Bought a home in 2013.
    As a first time homebuyer I was nervous about the process on many levels. Ann was flawless in her approach. She is very humble and down to earth and yet so passionate about finding her clients their dream home.
    She listens well and your questions will be answered based upon experience and actual knowledge, rather than a personal opinion or bias.
    I never experienced any type of pressure or hard sell during our sale.
    As a matter of fact long after our sale in January of 2014, I have developed such a trust in Ann and in the integrity with which she conducts herself, that to this day I can contact her for a service referral and get a response within an hour or two.
    She excels in communication and in keeping everyone on the same page at all times. She also excels in explaining each step of the process and keeping you on task throughout. Her guidance was invaluable.
    Her spirit and exuberance made this potentially daunting experience so much fun. I could not contain my excitement upon finding my condo. I still can't believe this place is mine.
    I would recommend Ann in a heartbeat and have.

    Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $150K in Chelsea, AL.
    Ann was extremely helpful with helping me purchase my very first house. I had a strict budget and a very small area I wanted to live. Ann was able to find wonderful homes for me to look at and get next day walk thru. For a first time home buyer it was a very nerve racking experience but Ann walked me thru it all 100% of the way. Ann Even set me up with a great mortgage company. I can not thank you enough Ann for making my dream of being a home buyer come true.

    Bought a Single Family home in 2009 in Alabaster, AL.
    Ann was the most patient and helpful realtor I could have hoped to link up with. I was very picky during my home search, and I spent about 8 months looking at houses. She never tried to push anything on me, but did help provide suggestions of houses to view. She was easy to get in contact with both via phone and email (very important to me). She was so helpful and caring, and I still keep in touch with her today. I highly recommend her to anyone who needs the services of a realtor in this area.
