Gulf Shores Realty is your local real estate agency with the depth of resources needed to ensure your purchase or sale will be successful.  With years of experience helping local buyers and sellers just like yourself, we know how to locate the finest properties and negotiate the best deals that the market will bear. It's our job to know about the latest market conditions, government regulations, and upcoming developments — so that you don't have to.  

Gulf Shores Realty had our humble beginnings in December of 2011 with Wayne Welsh as the Broker/Owner and one additional Realtor, operating from a single office.  Within a year, we were recognized as the Best Independent Real Estate Company in Venice, Florida.  We continued to win that prestigious recognition annually for 12 consecutive years.  In addition, we won the Business of the Year award from the Venice Area Chamber of Commerce three separate times.  Over the years, we have expanded to three offices and well over 50 Realtors.  We are hyper-local on the west coast of Florida.  We know this market because we live and work here.  In November 2021, Tomlin St Cyr purchased Gulf Shores Realty.  Wayne Welsh, turned over the reins and now devotes his expertise and experience to listing and selling homes, completely devoted to his clients.

Sellers' Representation

Selling a home on your own can be a risky, costly and frustrating venture.  The myriad of contracts and addenda required to comply with Florida law can create a situation where a unknowledgeable home owner's error can result in a lawsuit after the closing.  Checking the wrong box an cost thousands of dollars.  Studies have shown that For Sale By Owner homes generally sell for less than those sold by a Realtor.  In fact, the owner of the huge national company"For Sale By Owner" which advocates owners to sell their own home (but charges them a fee) actually hired a Realtor to sell his multi-million dollar personal residence.  Photography, preparation of professional marketing materials, signage, open houses and pre-qualifying buyers are but a few of the tasks your Realtor will handle on your behalf.  

We will begin with a Comparative Market Analysis and thoroughly explain the process.  We can provide counsel on home staging, repairs, and clean-up to help your home present in the best possible light.  Professional photography including Matterport 3D Tours and aerial photography will be scheduled.  Professional marketing materials will be created including color flyers, ads website and social media exposure.  Your home will appear on the Multiple Listing Service and be viewed by tens of thousands of potential buyers. Our marketing experience will ensure your home is shown to it's best potential and to the widest possible audience.

Potential buyers will be screened, scheduled and feedback will be shared with you.  Once offers are received, they will be promptly shared with you and fully explained.  We will provide counter offers if the original terms are not satisfactory.  We handle all the paperwork and will be here during the buyer's inspections and walk through.  You have a trusted advisor every step of the way to ensure the sale of your home is both profitable and handled professionally.
