About Us

Whether you’re thinking about buying or selling a Cullman-area home, you need to know the kind of folks you’ll be trusting to help you through the buying or selling process.

Happy Homes: Not Just Another Real Estate Agency

Happy Homes exists for just one purpose: to meet the buying and selling needs of Cullman-area families and those interested in moving into the area.

Real estate firms are often notorious for keeping their focus on the wrong thing… profits and commissions. We believe this self-serving focus is universally bad for clients. This is why Happy Homes is built from the bottom up with a laser focus on meeting the needs of our clients. It has been this way since the day of our founding in 2012, and will be the way we conduct ourselves decades from now. This is our promise to you.

Happy Homes Values… Cullman County Values

Because many members of the Happy Homes team were born and raised in Cullman County, we have shared backgrounds, experiences, and passions. Living in Cullman means something—neighbors supporting neighbors at sporting events, chance encounters on Main Street, or serving the greater good through volunteer and service activities.

Our Cullman roots run deep, which is why we run our company the way you live your life, with Cullman County values like honesty, integrity and an unyielding dedication to doing what’s right… even when nobody is watching. When we say we’ll do something, you can bet your bottom dollar we’ll do it.

We’ve Built Something Special for You in Cullman Real Estate

As experts in residential and commercial Cullman County real estate, we know the ins and outs of what’s going on in the local market. We’ve built this base of knowledge so we can help you with all of your real estate needs.

The best part of building something is sharing it, which is why we love sharing our knowledge with our clients. Every member of the Happy Homes Team… from our professional real estate agents… to our helpful office staff… all the way up to the owner… is excited about helping you with your next real estate transaction.

In the end, Happy Homes isn’t about us…

Happy Homes is All About You

Rather than focusing on ourselves, Happy Homes is all about you. You have needs, dreams, and aspirations. And we’ll do our part to make sure you’re just as happy after the transaction as you were before you trusted Happy Homes to help you to buy or sell your home.

It would be easy for us to tell you that in the last 12 months Happy Homes has sold 31% more Cullman area homes than our closest competitor, or that we have earned a number of prestigious awards. We don’t mention this just because it makes us look good.

The only reason this is worth mentioning is because these results show that we’ve kept our focus on the hopes, dreams, and aspirations of real people… folks just like you who have trusted us to get a job done for them.

We have a plan for helping you secure your future. Whether this includes a Cullman area home purchase or the potential sale of your home in one of the local communities served by Happy Homes, the best time to secure that future is now.  We specialize in residential and commercial real estate in Cullman, Good Hope, Vinemont, Baileyton, Hanceville, Fairview, Holly Pond, West Point, Cold Springs, Dodge City, Smith Lake and all of Cullman County and surrounding areas.

What’s your dream? Let’s talk about how Happy Homes can help you secure your future… now.

“We worked with Jeff as a long distance relocation from Florida to Alabama. We started with a realtor from another agency, but felt that our needs were not being met. We received a recommendation for Jeff and it turned out to be the recommendation we could have received. Jeff was professional, relatable, and took the time to listen and understand what we were looking for. After many trips back and forth from Florida, and looking at many houses, we finally found \"the one\". It turned out to be the house we didn\'t know we wanted. Jeff was with us every step of the way throughout the entire process. We received many compliments from our lender regarding Jeff\'s knowledge, professionalism, and timely response to questions. We closed on our house on March 16, 2020, and have since spent time making it ours. We can\'t recommend Jeff enough for your real estate needs, whether you\'re buying or selling.”
