Dotty Lou Farias of “The Pro Team” at Re/Max of Gulf Shores really went all out to help us find the right buyer for our Orange Beach Condo. She is extremely knowledgeable about the properties in the area and the current market trends. We used her to buy our condo years ago and to sell it in January. She’s the best!

Our experience working with Dotty Lou and her team was wonderful!!! You took care of all of the details involved in the sale of my tiny house and you found a buyer very quickly. I highly recommend you and your team. Thank you very much!

My husband and I had a wonderful experience with Kandy of purchasing our second Orange Beach condo.
We originally met Kandy in 2008. She had infinite patience working with us as we had specific factors in deciding which condo we were going to purchase. Fast forward 14
years. When we were in the market looking recently, she was tireless in finding condos for us to view. I had a specific range and amenities in mind that made it challenging to find the perfect one. But we did find it. Once we agreed on a price, the whole transaction
proceeded flawlessly with Kandy handling all the details.
Kandy made a challenging situation fun and we had a great time with her in finding the perfect places. She is extremely knowledgeable in her field and it was a joy to work with
her knowing that all the details would be completed.
Thank you, Kandy!

I first met Kandy Hines in 2010 upon purchasing my first investment property at Gulf Shores. Having been in real estate myself previously, I was a little nervous being the buyer in an unknown area. Kandy could not have been more receptive or knowledgeable. She handled everything perfectly, from being on time, extremely knowledgeable of her area and the ins and outs of condo investment property, to the tiniest detail of representation of my husband and myself from contract to close.
Twelve years and three more properties later, my relationship has grown with Kandy, and I have been pleased to watch her grow her business and be so successful. Which I know, from experience, comes from hard work, strong ethics, loyalty and a great attitude. I have recommended Kandy to several of my family members and friends who have also had wonderful experiences with her as well. My only regret is that she cannot represent me in other areas of the country where we have real estate holdings. I highly recommend Kandy Hines for your real estate needs.
We have purchased two properties through Kandy Hines and are in the process of selling a property through her so we obviously think she is an excellent realtor. Kandy is very knowledgeable about real estate and provided us with good information and options. She kept us updated throughout the purchase and sale process. Kandy always has a smile and a kind word!
I wanted to thank Dotty and The Pro Team for all the good work and the high level of service that they have provided me over a 17 year period. Dotty did an excellent job marketing our beachfront duplex home, the Sand Crab West which closed in December 2021.
I look at Dotty as a trusted advisor on market trends, market pricing, and listing strategies. The property had several quality offers within the first week and closing was a breeze – fast and simple. She did an excellent job negotiating the terms and working through the different stages of the sales process.
This is the 3rd transaction with Dotty and The ProTeam and I always refer to them as a first choice to all my friends.
I closed on November 19th on our dream property. Kandy was wonderful to work with always answering all our questions. She also asked and got answers to several of her own questions related to the Condo. We would recommend Kandy and her team to anyone looking to buy or sell.
Kandy Hines was a referral to us by a friend and we were so fortunate to have such a knowledgeable advocate working for us. She put our needs and goals into perspective while educating us on the area and all the permutations associated with ongoing assessments for repairing Hurricane Sally’s damage, helping us protect our investment long after closing. Kandy was honest and forthright, and it was apparent to us from the start of this process all the way to the closing how well-respected she is in this community. We feel so blessed to have had Kandy as our agent and new friend.

We can’t say enough about Kandy Hines, she was absolutely awesome to work with! She is always available and very much on top of her game. We would definitely recommend her to anyone buying or selling!!! Her attention to detail was superb!!!
Dotty was extremely knowledgeable, communicated very effectively, and was professional in her selling of our condo. I highly recommend her as a real estate agent.
Gary & Oliva
Kandy went above and beyond what we ever expected from an agent. She felt more like family and genuinely wanted us to get what was best for us. She was super knowledgeable about the ins and outs of the area, always flexible with our schedules, and patiently and competently answered all of our millions of questions from search through closing and beyond. We 100% recommend her and we look forward to working with her again in the future.
Sean & Taylor
Dotty was very professional and went above and beyond for us!! Her team was amazing and streamlined the entire process! It was nice to have such personalized service since we were conducting business remotely.
Kaz & Jennifer
I can’t say enough good things about working with Kandy. We have worked with many realtors and many of them do very little, but Kandy was extremely impressive. She is competent, timely, and accurate in her communication, and helped so much with our long-distance closing in May 2021. She continues to follow up and be of help after the transaction. I have high standards, and it was a completely positive experience!
THIS TEAM HAS IT GOING ON! Everything Dotty Lou Farias and her team did for us was perfect, professional, and prompt. If you are searching for property in the Gulf Shores/Orange Beach area – LOOK NO FURTHER! Dotty is experienced and knowledgeable – she thinks of the fine details, knows how to negotiate on your behalf, and gets things done!
Chris & Sara
Dotty Lou did a great job selling my condo. She helped me buy it 15 years ago and continued with great service on the sale. Good price and aggressive representation.
Dotty Lou Farias is the best. She is very knowledgeable of the market and what it takes to make a deal. She will look out for your best interest. She’s fabulous. Not only is she a great real estate agent but she’s also a great friend now.

Over many years my wife, Teresa, and I have been fortunate to have Kandy as our agent on several condos purchases and sales. Kandy and the Pro Team have always been extremely professional. Kandy’s knowledge of the market in good time and bad is exceptional.
This combined with her tireless energy and desire to help beyond the normal has allowed Teresa and I to be very successful with our condo investments in Orange Beach and along the way become friends with Kandy and her wonderful husband, Derek.
Throughout my long career, I have been involved in numerous real estate deals, both personal and professional. Without a doubt, the deals with Kandy have always gone the best.
Teresa and I highly recommend Kandy and "The Pro Team" to handle any real estate transactions you are considering in the Gulf Shores/Orange Beach Market!

From the listing to the closing, selling our condo through “The Pro Team” of Gulf Shores was the best experience we have ever had selling any of our properties. “The Pro Team” is exactly as advertised, with exceptional professionalism with all staff members and services. Dotty Lou’s experience, knowledge, and empathy for her clients are calming and heartwarming. Samantha Goodson helped us with documentation, process, and getting the information needed for the buyer. They both made the entire sale a “piece of cake”! A real “Pro Team” indeed!
We have dealt with many realtors in our 30 years of buying and selling city residential houses, condos, lake houses, and beachfront property. Kandy is the best. Thorough, knowledgeable, patient, and always prepared she makes buying and selling a stressless, enjoyable experience.
“My wife and I have been dealing with ‘The Pro Team’ and Dotty Lou Farias since 2001. We have bought and sold numerous properties in Gulf Shores, Orange Beach, and Bon Secour with their professional guidance.
Dotty’s local knowledge of the market is unparalleled, and she has proven to be a shrewd and fierce negotiator who has consistently secured top dollar margins on property sales and saved us tens of thousands on purchases. She has become a trusted friend, and there is no one else whom we would even consider for our real estate transactions.”
– Dan and Sara M.
“We closed on the sale of our condo on 06/15/2020. My wife and I can surely attest to the professional dedication of ‘The Pro Team’. Our sale was a 1031 Tax Free Exchange, so it was really a sale and a purchase. Dotty Lou and her team navigated the complexities of our deal with experienced skill. On top of that, Dotty Lou was working in an environment that was adversely impacted by both the Covid-19 and a wildly fluctuating financial market place. Stated realistically, we would not have SOLD our condo without her dedicated competence!”
– Charlie and Dana S
“How do you sell a home during a global pandemic? By having a REALTOR® with 37 years experience! A REALTOR® who knows her market, a REALTOR® who’s team keeps everything coordinated, a REALTOR® who knows how to close a deal. Dotty Lou Farias is that REALTOR® on the Gulf Coast. Dotty listens, she researches, she gets your house sold by pricing it right! Whether buying or selling (we’ve done both) Dotty Lou is the only REALTOR® you need on your team if you want results.”
– Chris & Terry – 6/9/2020
What a great experience. Kandy is very knowledgeable and good at what she does. We were eased by her pleasant demeanor and great communication during the process.
Listed & sold this condo in two weeks! Always great to work with Dotty Lou & “The Pro Team”. Sam, Dotty’s assistant is quick & efficient getting paperwork done. Dotty Lou is really great at developing a reasonable sale price that will sell quickly. “The ProTeam” has helped us find our dream lot & home & assisted with many condo sales through the years.

Kandy is by far the best real estate agent I have worked with! From start to finish, she was on top of everything.! She has in-depth market knowledge. Kandy is professional, attentive to details and spot-on with her follow-ups. I happily recommend Kandy to anyone, not only for her real estate expertise but because she is a delight to work with!

"I have bought several houses in my life, and I have to say that I don't think I have ever been represented any better than I was with Kandy Hines. She made the whole process a less stressful experience since I was an out of town buyer, and I always knew that she had my best interest at heart. I would recommend Kandy to family and friends anytime...give her a call and you will to!"

Dotty Knows The Market!!!
"Dotty Lou sold my house on 3/4/2016 to the first person who looked at it. She had two others wanting it within the first week listed. I also used Dotty Lou to assist in the purchase of our new home that closed on 3/7/2016. I bought the house I just sold through Dotty also. A hard working team . Dotty knows the market and is top Sales person in the Gulf Shores, AL area markets."
—Gary & Lynn B., Gulf Shores, AL
"James Calvert and "The Pro Team" did a great job! He sold our house and helped us buy a new one. James went over and above our expectations, his service was excellent."

Lighthouse Condo in Gulf Shores
"We worked with Kandy Hines to purchase our first condo in Gulf Shores. The entire process was seamless and I would recommend her to anyone interested in purchasing in the Gulf Shores area. She was knowledgable and accessible. She guided us from negotiations through closing. We will be using her again soon!"
—Tara S., Slidell, LA
"Dotty Lou Farias found the condo/duplex that I ultimately purchased on our first "shopping" day. I had been looking for 2 years. She answered every question and anticipated every hesitation simply by listening and knowing her territory, as well as the real estate market. Dotty Lou has an excellent team that made our purchasing process seamless. I met Dotty Lou through a friend that has made several purchases and sales with this excellent team. I promise, you will be very glad you chose Dotty Lou and her team!"
—Debbie C., Gulf Shores, AL
"I casually asked Dotty Lou through an email about a house I saw for sale that she did not have listed. Thirty minutes later she called me with all the details and suggested we set up an appointment to see the house. I told her anytime that was convenient with her but it would have to be a great deal or something I had to have. I was serious about a house in Orange Beach but I also did not want to waste her time.
We went to view the house and shortly after getting inside she said lets go they want too much $$$. She stated that she would select several houses now that she knew more what I wanted. A couple of weeks later she sent five houses for us to review and we went to take a look.
First one was perfect and we looked at the other four and she said lets go back and look at the first one again. She knew that was the one for us.
We went to her office and made and offer which was accepted. This was a short sale and these take some time. She kept us informed and without her persistence and staying after the house and on top of every document we would not have ended up with the property. The house is perfect and without her help we would not have ended up with a great house for us.
We turned around and listed our condo with her and this was during a time when it was not a good time to sell a condo. A month later she brought us a good offer and we sold it. I would not hesitate and I have recommended her to several people. Thanks Dotty."

My Experience Working With "The Pro Team"
"I needed to sell my Property in Elberta & Relocate. I asked around for a Real Estate Agent to help and was told The Best in South Alabama was Dotty Lou Farias, "The Pro Team" at RE/MAX of Gulf Shores. Dotty Lou came to see & talk about the property and I told her what I needed & I had to close the deal in 60 days no more than 90. I needed to have an agent to handle the sale, as I would be tied up with arranging the move. She said that's what we’d do; she would work very hard, stay in contact & keep me up to date on the situation. On Dec.17 we closed for more than I asked, in only 56 days. She stayed on top of all the details and the Team did more than anyone could ask. Now I know why Dotty Lou is the leader of “THE PRO TEAM” & MY HERO!"
—Lee C., Empire, AL
I Would Highly Recommend "The Pro Team"
"Dotty and her team were very easy to work with and very helpful. Dotty's knowledge of the market and pricing were remarkable. The bonus was her personality! I look forward to working with her in the future."
