David Mackle
RE/MAX Southern Homes - 280
About David

I was born in 1973 at Birmingham's St. Vincent's Hospital and have been in the Magic City ever since. In 2006, I started a new career in real estate hoping to combine my knowledge of Birmingham with a love for the city, its individual communities, and the pleasure of its beautiful homes. I run my business by referral, which means I have built-in accountability to serve the needs of my clients. This business model has been one of the key elements of my success, helping me to reach various sales achievements including RE/MAX International’s Platinum Club (2013 through 2020). I am consistently ranked in the top 20 RE/MAX agents in Alabama and finished 2015 ranked #10 among Birmingham-area Re/Max agents. In 2020, two national ranking services included me in their annual rankings: • NEWSWEEK’s “America’s Top Agents” (Sales Volume in Alabama) • Real Trends “America’s Top Real Estate Professionals (Number of Transactions in Alabama) I live in Inverness with my wife, Holly and daughters, Ellie and Georgia. Holly is a writer and has penned three books including Little Hearts, Prepare Him Room, an advent devotional that grows with your family. We are active members of Oak Mountain Presbyterian Church and greatly enjoy time with friends and family. In my free time, I enjoy watching sports, playing fantasy football, eating Chick-Fil-A sandwiches, and listening to the music of Andrew Peterson, Switchfoot, Colony House, Guster, and Foo Fighters, among many others.

Susan Lehman
Keller Williams Metro South
About Susan

Susan Lehman is not just another Realtor. After retiring as a Special Education Teacher, she decided to pursue a career in residential real estate. In 2012, she joined Keller Williams Metro South in Alabaster and quickly became of her agency’s top producers. Shortly thereafter, she built a team of industry professionals, Team Lehman, to better assist her customers in the selling and buying processes. In Susan’s first year as a Realtor, she was awarded Rookie of the Year and, in 2017, was invited to serve on Keller Williams’ Agent Leadership Council, where only the top 5% are invited to serve.  Selling your home is a business which requires in-depth marketing expertise and communication skills. Susan’s undergraduate and graduate degrees from the University of Alabama in both Education and Administration have played a key role in her success in that regard. Over the last four-and-a-half years that Susan has been in real estate, she sold 120 homes, totaling approximately 20,000,000.00 dollars in sales. During the first half of 2017 alone, she sold 31 homes for a total of 5,007,000.00 dollars in sales. As an expert in marketing homes in our local area, Susan provides her clients with a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate which outside agents simply cannot offer. No market is identical. Therefore, buyers and sellers need a local, professional agent they can trust for up-to-date and relevant information. Here are some of the things Susan and Team Lehman can do for you: Find Your Next Home – When you are looking for a new home, you need someone who knows the area inside and out! Susan and Team Lehman will work with you to find the right home at the right price, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home. Sell a Home - When it's time to sell, Susan and Team Lehman will advertise your home, show it to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, help guide you through the financing process, oversee inspections, handle all necessary paperwork, and facilitate the closing. They will take care of everything you need, from list to close. Consult on Home Selling Tactics – Oftentimes, buyers don't visualize living in your home the same way you do. Susan and Team Lehman will help you make your home attractive to prospective buyers - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home languishing on the market or selling quickly and for the best price.

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Jefferson County?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload. Selling a home takes an enormous amount of work, so you need an agent who’s got a plan for prep, pricing, and marketing and who is ready to roll up their sleeves to get the job done.

A great agent makes a difference when you buy a house, too: We’ve found that the top 5% of buyer's agents on average save their clients 2.5% more on their home purchase.

When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Jefferson County?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date. When you start the search for an agent several months before hitting the market, there’s plenty of time to find the best agent, make key renovations, and market your home effectively, all of which are essential steps in selling your home for a great price. You can also hire an agent based on the best time to sell to take advantage of seasonal and cyclical trends in the market. The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
