As a long time investor, I've had the opportunity to work with various Brokers/Realtors. While they are professional, our experience with Shirlee Poulos, at Carney Realty, Inc. was an above average experience. Shirlee communicates with every showing and gives quality feedback. When she had a prospect for many of my commercial properties, she didn't let up until we knew the prospect just wasn't qualified or the level of interest wasn't worth pursuing. As an experienced and successful investor, we would highly recommend working with Shirlee @ Carney Realty, Inc., She is honest and is very tenacious when she represents you. Don't let a small agency fool you. Professionalism is at the top of her list.
Shirlee @ Carney Realty, Inc. listed/sold our condo in Orange Beach. She not only had it listed, she made sure we had every advantage. Tiffany her daughter/assistant did an amazing Virtual Tour. Made me want to keep my condo when it was completed. She was on top of her game to communicate via email, due to the fact, I'm a trail attorney. She requires detail in her paperwork and her communication. She was so good...We gave two more condos to her in Gulf Shores. They didn't move as quickly, however, it sure wasn't because she didn't try. She finally brought us a great offer and up'd the mark on the second. Shirlee will "really have your back". That's how she works. You will never be disappointed. We weren't. And, she stays in touch after the sale. Tiffany (her daughter/assistant) is like her mother. She's a Chiropractor/Fl./Al Licensed. What more could you ask for? Thanks Shirlee
Thanks for all your help in making our "dream home" a reality. We really appreciated that you went the extra mile to get us the best price for our home. You are truly a professional.
In all our dealings with Realtors over the past ten years, we have never met anyone as helpful and energetic as you have been. Without hesitation, we would highly recommend your service to anyone who is looking for an experienced Realtor who cares about getting things done and doing them right! Thanks for taking such good care of us, we couldn't have done it without you!
Thank you so much for taking the extra effort to make our first home purchase successful. You were there guiding us through all the crucial and important steps! You really listened to what we wanted in our home and you found exactly what we were looking for - at an amazing price! If we ever outgrow this home, we'll definitely be calling you!
You made buying a home so easy for my wife and I. We were grateful for how much patience you used in answering all of our questions and taking us to look at so many houses. You never pushed us into looking at something we were not interested in. We strongly recommend you to anyone looking at buying a new home.
note: we send out "report cards" to our clients/customers/ and they essentially grade us from the beginning of the meeting to the end. we don't ask for their names and it's self addressed.
Those report cards are below.
We wanted to take a moment to thank you for the exceptional job you did in selling our home this year. "Exceptional" does not really do justice to the service you and Tiffany (your assistant) provided. From market analysis, to presentation (awesome videos, Tiffany) to skillful negotiations and a clean, fast close you performed like the true professional you are, Shirlee. In an industry over-stuffed with "wanna-be" Realtors, it is a pleasure to find someone with your level of competence. We can recommend you, and Carney Realty to anyone seeking a professional Realtor who will get the job done.

For all the world to hear! I personally am a real estate broker/owner in Jackson, Ms. Which is the oldest firm in my area. I have both purchased/sold and referred business to Shirlee Poulos,owner of Carney Realty and I am happy to sing her praises. Shirlee was my realtor and I couldn't have asked for a more professional Realtor to help me with my properties on the Gulf Coast. As a Broker/Owner myself of a successful real estate company, I would never refer business if I didn't have the upmost respect for Shirlee. The referrals have been extremely pleased with her performance in selling their properties. I would not consider doing business with any other agency or realtor in that area.

During our search for a potential retirement home in Baldwin County, Shirlee and Tiffany (her assistant) worked tirelessly to show us as many great properties as possible. We made four trips over a period of seven months., looking at properties in no less than six different communities. Ultimately, with Shirlee's hard work, constant attention and great flexibility working with our schedule, we purchased a home we hope to retire to in the next few years. She and Tiffany continued with the service after the sale to make our long distant purchase as painless and efficient as possible. We would recommend Carney Realty, Shirlee and Tiffany personally to anyone considering a search for a home in your area.

Dear Shirlee, "this is just a note to tell you how pleased we were with the services you and Tiffany provided in selling our home in Orange Beach, Al. You both worked so hard to stage the home for sale. It looked so beautiful after you decorated it we knew that it would sell fast. As it turned out, we received our full listing price on the offer that we accepted. There were many homes for sale in our neighborhood by other real estate firms that are still on the market after one year or so later. Our home was purchased through Shirlee's mother, Jean in 1996. We enjoyed her company and went to dinner with her. We became friends. We would gladly recommend Carney Realty and Shirlee to anyone seeking professional and congenial respresentation. All our best to you.
