About Jeff Dockery

I was born in Kentucky and raised in and around Cullman County. After living in a variety of places and traveling to 41 states so far with work and family, I’ve come to the conclusion that Cullman is the best place in America to live and raise a family—bar none. There is nowhere quite like Cullman!

I worked at GM for many years while also buying and selling, renting and leasing my own investment real estate. In addition, I also owned the local Ace Hardware franchise for 15 years.

These career experiences taught me how to successfully work with people while handling all the moving parts of the typical real estate transaction.

My life away from work is fairly typical of Cullman: Life revolves around faith, family and fun. Between church activities, fun on the water at Smith Lake, antique shopping and—of course, watching football—life is good.

While at work I enjoy helping people through the whole real estate process. From finding the home you want, to getting your financing approved, all the way until you get the keys to your new home, I relish the chance to help make lives better and more fulfilling.

The same is true when you’re selling your home—I’ll work hand in hand with you to list your home at the right price and help you get it sold.

I have the experience, the knowledge and the ambition to help you to buy or sell your home. Call me now at (256) 347-4405.

Thanks again to Jeff Dockery and Happy Homes Real Estate for helping us find our new home in the city! After Jeff sold our house in the county we were ready to buy quickly but had to learn patience.

We are thankful to Jeff Dockery and Happy Homes Real Estate for the great job they did in listing and selling our property beside the church! We tried other Real Estate companies but had no luck. We contacted Jeff and Happy Homes and all kinds of interest. They did a great job in marketing our property. Jeff was always there answering any of our questions. We appreciate everything Jeff and Happy Homes did for us!

I was very happy with the experience I recently had with Jeff Dockery and Happy Homes Real Estate. They helped me find my dream home and I love it! Jeff was great at assisting me as we looked at houses until we found the one. Jeff helped me negotiate the price with the sellers until we had an agreement. I would highly recommend Jeff Dockery and the Happy Homes Real Estate Team to all my family, friends, and neighbors! I will be using Happy Homes again soon to list and sell another property I own.

Norman & Marie Key

We were impressed with the personal relationship we developed with our agent, Jeff Dockery. Happy Homes listed and sold our home in 2 months! Jeff treated us like family. We moved to Louisiana and gave Jeff a limited Power of Attorney to sign our documents at closing for us. We were completely satisfied with our experience with Happy Homes Real Estate! We have an offer for Jeff and his family for some Cajun food if they are ever in our area. Thanks again Happy Homes!


It was a great experience working with Jeff Dockery at Happy Homes Real Estate! I would recommend them to anyone looking for a new home! My daughter liked the backpack, my wife liked the flower pot and plant, and I liked the coffee mugs that Happy Homes gave us! Thanks again Jeff!
