Dede Puryear MarkleAssoc. Broker, ePro, CRS, ABR, REALTOR

I am a wife, mother and Realtor/Broker. I love my job! I have lived in this area all my life. I know this community very well. I was on the PTA for years and 2 years Vice-President of Paine's PTA. I have said many times this job is ideal for my personality. I love meeting new wonderful people!

One of my favorite parts of my career is being able to negotiate on the behalf of my clients to get the best deal! I am a true believer in the Golden Rule. I will work to guide buyers through the entire process and help them find just the right home within their financial comfort zone. I do not believe in going above what you can afford and eating PB&J sandwiches every night. I have found a love in foreclosures/REO properties and new construction. I have received the Club of Excellence awards, Multi-Million Dollar Producer, RE/MAX Executive Club and RE/MAX 100% Club. Recently named One of Five "Trussville Tribune's Readers Top 5 Best Realtors in Trussville". I have achieved my Brokers license, e-Pro, (CRS) Certified Residential Specialist (only 4% of Realtors have this designation, highest designation an agent can achieve) and (ABR) Accredited Buyer Representative Designations from the National Association of Realtors.

I serve on the Birmingham Association of Realtors® MLS Technology Committee and Professional Development Committee (Committee Chair 2012), Alabama CRS Education Chair 2013, Alabama CRS Communications Chair 2014 and a member of the Womens Council of Realtors®.

With all of that said the most wonderful achievements I have are my two beautiful daughters! They are both such blessings and I could not be any more proud to be their mom!

    Sold a home in 2017 for approximately $250K.
    Our experience with David and Dede Markle was absolutely amazing. Their attention to detail and ability to get their client exactly what they are looking for is unmatched by anyone. David and Dede went above and beyond the call of duty as agents for our family and we truly appreciate them. No question was too silly and no request was too big for them and we could not imagine using anyone else. We honestly thought our house would never sell due to the location of the house, but they sold our home in a month and got our complete asking price. We were shocked! When purchasing our new home, David and Dede knew the right questions to ask and the things to ask for. I honestly feel they knew what we wanted out of our new home more than we did. Everything was perfectly handled and I am quite sure they handled all the little kinks without us even having to lift a finger. They are a true match when it comes to their qualities in agents which in turn makes the complete package. We highly recommend anyone and everyone to use David and Dede and know they will not be disappointed.

    Bought a Single Family home in 2017 for approximately $200K in Trussville, AL.
    We felt like David and Dede were very knowledgeable and on top of it! From the first phone call to the closing, we felt comfortable throughout the entire process! We found our forever home thanks to them and couldn't be happier. We strongly recommend them!

    Sold a Single Family home in 2017 for approximately $425K in Trussville, AL.
    I would like to Thank Dede and David Markle for their professionalism and their perseverance to help sell our home for us. When we listed it we expected it would take around 120 days to sell and Dede and David found a buyer, and helped to get the deal closed in 41 days. Wow that is great customer service and they are really go getters. If you need to sell your home quickly and get what or near what you wanted to sell it for, this is your team,

    They were also very helpful in helping us get our home staged properly so it would show well. If they tell you that you need to move some furniture or reduce some things in a room, you should listen as everyone who came to our home commented on how well staged and clean it was.

    Lastly, they had a lot of contacts that we were able to use to get any fixes, inspections and anything else that needed to be done before and during the closing process.

    They are the best real estate team in the area and if you live in Trussville, Odenville or the surrounding areas, you should use them. They get the job done and help you the best experience possible for something that is normally very stressful.

    Thanks again Dede and David! You guys are great!

    David & DeDe went above and beyond to help us sell our home. They helped advise us through the whole process and we leaned entirely on them. It was a pleasure working with them both and we would give them the highest recommendation. If you're looking for realtors with honesty and integrity look no further than DeDe and David!

    Sold a Single Family home in 2017 for approximately $550K in Trussville, AL.
    Dede was great throughout our selling process. She knew the importance of selling our home and getting the best price for it. Honesty and integrity are some of her attributes that were displayed while listing and selling our home. The listing was professionally done on the website.

    Bought a home in 2016 for approximately $225K.
    I used DeDe and David for the sale of my house several years ago. It was such a great experience I didn't hesitate to call them again when I decided to purchase another house in Trussville. They are both extremely professional, knowledgeable and are always available to answer any question or concern. As a client, you can absolutely trust that they are working very hard for you. I have no doubt that the next time I need an agent, I will be calling them again.

    Listed, but didn't sell my Single Family home in 2015 in Trussville, AL.
    Dede Puryear Markle did everything right with the sale of my property. I never met David, but know he was in the background doing comps and everything else that was expected. I would use their services again and again. Most pleasant experience!

    Sold a home in 2016 in Oxmoor, Bessemer, AL 35022.
    Dede and David had an offer on my house the first day it was listed with them. They worked around mine and my husband's schedule to meet with us, and explained the details of what they were doing each step of the process. During the process of closing this sale, they communicated with us as to what to expect. Dede even made sure that our closing was scheduled at a time that didn't interfere with a deadline I have at work each month. Dede and David are now helping us find a new home. My husband and I really enjoy working with them and cannot express in words the appreciation we have for them. I can recommend this team without any reservations!

    Bought and sold a home in 2014 in Roper, Trussville, AL 35173.
    David and Dede went above and beyond to sell our home and assist us with the purchase of our new home. We enjoyed the buying process even more knowing they were both available to answer any questions we had. The enjoyment they have helping others is very evident from the first time you speak with them.
