We gave Makayla our specifications for the property we wanted. She found the perfect property for us! The negotiations went smoothly and we closed on time. She was diligent in obtaining the entry easement and insisted that it was recorded so that we would not have problems in the future. We would definitely use her again for a purchase or a sell of property.

Makayla was immensely helpful throughout my first time home buying experience. She has an incredible amount of local market knowledge and is highly organized. Any questions or concerns were fielded immediately, and I always felt like my purchase was her priority. Her schedule revolved around mine, and she was never hesitant to work on the weekends to get the house that I wanted. I would recommend Makayla Elders to anyone as my preferred real estate agent!

We're first time home buyers and she did such a great job helping us and she fought hard for us from start to finish. She's definitely perfect to have on your side!

I've moved around a lot throughout my life, so I have plenty of experience with realtors, good and bad. I can say Niki has been the greatest realtor for me bar none! She was patient, considerate, and personal. I was hesitant at first, given the realtor I used before her was such a disaster, but she quickly became like family to me. When the previous owner of what is now my home was being a pain about the repairs, Niki took charge and ensured the work was done so I could have the house of my choice. There is no better realtor out there, and few people as sweet as her.

We purchased our first home with Watercress and Makayla, and she made sure our first time buying experience was the best it could be. She took us to every home we wanted to see, guided us through the contract process, let us know what was and wasn’t fair, and stood by our side when the buying process got tough. We’re so glad we had Makayla on our team!

Warren Ward was my agent when buying my first house as a single woman. It was overwhelming but he explained everything as we went along the process, read all documents prior to my signing them, gave me sound advice when choices were required, heard things I didn't when going through the final walk-through, and was right there when I signed the final documents to become a homeowner! Truly felt he was fully in my corner the whole time. I would recommend Warren to anyone looking for a home in this area. He's the best!

Niki was fantastic during our first home buying process. She showed us the first and only house that we looked at, and we closed within 30 days of our first showing. She covered everything for us and treated us like we were family. She is a real estate veteran with great connectivity to the area and she is very honest about all aspects of the business. We will continue to recommend her to everyone we know!

I relocated from the West Coast to AL. Stephanie was very responsive and helpful in being able to do most of the work via email and phone. Stephanie went out of her way to accommodate what I was looking for and on my 5 day house hunting trip.

Stephanie was very good at working with the seller of the house and the mortgage lender and always made sure I was comfortable with the process, to answer my questions, and was an awesome advocate for me during the purchase.

At all times Stephanie maintained a high level of professionalism and treated me well and with high respect and regard. the worked very hard for me and I am very appreciative of all their efforts, time, and diligence.

I highly recommend Stephanie and this team. I will defiantly call upon this team in the future if/when I sell my home and need to purchase a new one in the area.

Niki and her team could not possibly be more professional and hardworking to sell your home. She got our home sold in record time. We'd tried other realtors in the past, but nobody came close to the level of service and enthusiasm.

If we ever move back to the Huntsville area, Niki is going to be our first call when it comes to real estate!

I've bought and sold many homes over the past 40 years, but never experienced the level of service and thoughtfulness as I've received from Watercress Realty. Their familiarity with the area, professionalism, and their diligent pursuit of the perfect house for me was truly remarkable. I ended up with the home that was that was exactly what I was looking for. In addition, their support throughout the entire buying process, as well as after purchase questions / issues was not only reassuring, but resulted in a savings 1000's of dollars. I wholeheartedly recommend Watercress Realty to anyone looking for a home in the Huntsville, AL area.

When we were looking our house, we used Watercress. They were very knowledgeable and provided great comparables in the area we were looking. Any time we had questions, they would give us print answers. When we decided on a home they handled all the negotiating and we were able to close and be moved in less that 45 days from the initial visit to the home! Watercress is great to work with and I would definitely recommend them to any looking to buy or sell a home!

I recently contacted Niki Ward for a market appraisal of my mother's home. She had done her homework and arrived at the appointment with comprehensive information about the townhome project - sales history, current market conditions, etc. We were also interested in looking at other properties and she was quick to respond with appointments to view these other properties. While my mother has not yet decided what she's going to do, when she does we will not hesitate to list with Watercress Realty. Niki is an "out-of-the-box" marketer and will do what it takes to get the job done.

Niki with Watercress Realty was phenomenal from start to finish. She put us in contact with a great mortgage lender, found our forever home, and helped explain every step of the process so we weren't in the dark. She will be listing our former home. This whole experience was wonderful because of Niki and the company she works for!!! I wish there were more stars to give!
