Happy Buyers

I recently worked with Carole in purchasing my first home. She had excellent advice and presented a strategy to get my very first offer accepted! She was incredibly helpful in addressing all of my questions as a first time homebuyer. Overall, the process was much easier than expected, and Carole certainly was one of the main reasons.

Carole Harrison was the realtor for my young daughter's first home purchase. Carole took personal interest in helping my daughter beyond what would be typical for a client. Carole took the time to basically counsel my daughter on the home buying process, assess her interests, match her interests with what she was able to afford, and patiently stand by my daughter the whole time. As a parent, I appreciate Carole's professionalism and sincere interest in my daughter journey. This is the third real estate transaction that Carole has brokered for our family. Carole is a true professional that knows the Auburn-Opelika community and, more importantly, a good person that can be trusted.

Yvette Lowe is wonderful to work with. She is very attentive to the needs of her clients and works to bring about a flawless closing. I highly recommend Yvette and am very thankful she was by our side as we made the move to Opelika!

Yvette Lowe was great. Wonderful personality. My experience was great. Yvette Lowe was my agent and she was very caring and met our needs. I don't think anyone could have made us as happy as she did. She really cared about our needs.

We became associated with Gloria actually by accident. My husband and I were semi - seriously house hunting and wanted to look at a particular property. The listing agent was unavailable, and Gloria came instead. She showed us the property, answered our questions and even answered general questions about selling our own house. We finally found a property to purchase and used her as our buyer’s agent. While preparing our current house to put on the market, as we still had several remodel projects to complete before listing, she endured countless questions about our projects and provided us with invaluable information. When it came time to list, we listed on a Friday, had a verbal offer on Sunday and signed a contract that week for more money than we ever imagined. We highly recommend Gloria for any and all real estate services, and will certainly engage her services in the future if needed."

My husband and I moved to Opelika in 2014 after accepting a new job. We looked around on our own for a while but soon realized we needed help finding a home. While riding through an Auburn neighborhood, we spotted a sign in front of a house with Gloria's name and number on it. So, we called, and she immediately responded. After talking with her on the phone, we knew that we wanted her as our agent. Gloria has been our agent through the process of building our home and when we decided to sell it seven years later. We put our trust in Gloria's professionalism and excellent advice to help us. Her wisdom and experience allowed us to not only avoid pitfalls but also enjoy many amenities we otherwise would not have thought to add. During the purchase and sale, she went over and above preparing us, and advising us during the process, all while taking care of everything she agreed to do. As a result, the value we received for our home we purchased exceeded the cost we paid and once our home was placed on the market, within three days, we got an offer above the asking price. We would trust her with another purchase and sale without reservation. She is not only an exceptional RealtorⓇ, but we are proud to call her our friend.


I struggle to put into words the phenomenal job Yvette Lowe did for me while purchasing my home. Don't let that cool-under-fire, Southern beauty fool you in to thinking she does not know her stuff. That girl had my back at every turn. She protected me, the buyer, in every way. She asked questions - many questions, put feet to the fire, demanded and got results, repairs and receipts. She noticed many things, big and small that I overlooked. She is punctual, hardworking, loyal, friendly, and knowledgeable and has the tenacity of a tiger on the prowl. She will work from sun up to way after sun down to make sure your needs and inquiries are met. Truly a Super Woman! I was comfortable with her from the moment I met her. She is easy to converse with, an intent listener and will not hold back sharing concerns that might affect your successful outcome as a buyer or seller. She offers sound, honest and caring advice. She takes her commitment to her clients seriously. Porter Properties is so lucky to have her on staff, she is now my BFL....Broker for Life! I'm so grateful she found for me my little, country, forever home where the grand kids can come and play and get filthy dirty and we can have fun family, pool, birthday, kickball, BBQ, tailgate, play in the rain parties!! #thankfulforyvette #bestbrokerinbama
