Kandy is the best realtor I have ever dealt with. Always does a phenomenal job and she is extremely knowledgeable about the market. She understands customer service and seeing things through. A lost art in this day and time.
Blake & Amanda H., Orange Beach, AL
James Calvert is a wonderful agent to work with. He knows all about the Orange Beach/Gulf Shores area. He listened to our list of needs and found us a perfect match for our family. He was super patient as he worked with us over several months to find just the right home. He is very knowledgeable when it comes to negotiating, even on home inspection items. We highly recommend James and will use him again, if needed.
Sylvia W., Foley, AL
We had a great experience working with Kandy Hines. Kandy went above and beyond in helping us find the perfect property for our need.
Kandy’s professionalism, knowledge, as well as her attention to detail are remarkable!
We are out of town buyers, and she lead us through the entire process from start to finish. She has kept in contact after closing as well.
We look forward to working with Kandy and the RE/MAX team again in the future.
Rick and Gayle Hall
“We used Kandy Hines as our realtor and could not be happier. As 1st time home buyers we were nervous and had no idea about the process, but she walked us through each step with amazing advice. We couldn’t have done it without her, and now we are in our 1st home and couldn’t be happier. Kandy showed us over 20 homes yet we kept going back to the 1st house that we saw and that is the home we ended up buying and love it completely.”
– Marc & Stacey T., Daphne, AL
“Kandy and her team showed us many condos and homes 5 years ago in Orange Beach and Gulf Shores. We were very pleased with her representing us as a Buyer. We were equally impressed when she represented us a seller 5 years later. These folks are knowledgeable, patient, friendly and professional. We could not ask for a better experience, either as a Buyer or as a Seller… We will be back.”
-CW & Sharon K., Dallas Texas
“Dotty and her team are very knowledgeable from having years of experience in the local real estate market. We do not live in Alabama, so Dotty’s advice and suggestions in staging, listing and selling our property was extremely helpful. Our property was listed on a Tuesday and sold on the following Friday. Dotty was also very helpful in negotiating the multiple offers we received. It was a pleasure working with Dotty and her staff. She is a “go getter” with good business ethics. We highly recommend Dotty and will definitely work with her on any future real estate transactions.”
“Dotty Lou and her team were a pleasure to work with! I found her somewhere on Zillow along with a stat that showed she was among the top selling agents in Gulf Shores. In other words, she closes more deals than just about anyone in the area. At our house we’ve nicknamed her “The Closer” : ) She proved her skills to us fast. We listed around the end of the year and we closed early February – for over our asking price! Dotty is super friendly, knowledgeable and responsive. Sam, her assistant, handled the details and communication with excellence!! Thank you Dotty and Team!!”
“Our experience was a very pleasant experience. Kandy was very professional from the beginning to the end. If anyone is looking for a real estate agent, contact Kandy Hines with RE/MAX of Gulf Shores. Kandy’s expertise was such an added bonus in searching for a home. My husband and I highly recommend her for all your real estate needs!”
“This is the second time Kandy sold my beach front condo because she did a superb job on the first one. Kandy knows the market, she is willing to make extra steps to improve the appearance of the unit, she does very well protecting her clients interest and in the meantime she makes sure the pricing is right for the market. I have no doubt I will ask her to be my agent again when I get back to the market.”
“The Pro Team at RE/MAX of Gulf Shores is the best agency that I have ever used. Dotty sold all three of my condominiums at the right price within two months after receiving my request. I highly recommend Dotty and her team to anyone wanting to buy or sell in the Gulf Shores and Orange Beach areas.”
“Kandy Hines is an excellent agent to work with. She earned our loyalty when she sold us a unit previously and we will always come back to her. She works hard for the seller and keeps you informed but never pushes too hard once she has made her point. We appreciate knowing we can count on her when we want to buy or sell in the Gulf Shores area.”
“The Pro Team, led by Dotty Farias, was incredibly efficient and helpful throughout my recent condo sale. They handled and anticipated just about everything with ease, and I was able to do the entire selling and closing process remotely. Highly recommend as the first option for real estate proceedings in the Gulf Shores/Orange Beach area. Great folks.”

“Dotty Lou is the only choice if you want the best agent in the Gulf Shores area! Dotty Lou has exceptional knowledge of all aspects of local real estate, market trends, pricing, and all the legalities associated with waterfront property ownership. Her work ethic, communication skills, and attention to detail is impeccable, and very reassuring for out of town sellers. Once again, Dotty Lou has successfully listed an oceanfront property for me and exceeded my expectations with two offers and a contract within the first week and a closing a few days later with the Thanksgiving holidays thrown in the middle! Dotty Lou is the consummate professional real estate agent that delivers!”
—John & Mitzi R., Birmingham, AL
“James Calvert is GREAT. Timely communication, honest assessment and recommendations, and awesome negotiation skills. He even helped ensure our closing would take place before the Thanksgiving holiday.”
“I had the pleasure of working with Kandy Hines on my recent condominium purchase in Orange Beach AL. I have been buying and selling real estate for the last 15 years and Kandy is the best I have ever worked with. She sets the standard when it comes to dedication and professionalism. This was my first purchase of a condo and Kandy took time to help me learn the challenges and differences between a condo purchase and a single family dwelling. I would high recommend her to anyone looking for property in the Gulf Shores, Orange Beach area. You will not be disappointed. Thanks so much!”
—Todd & Teresa H., Greenville, IN
“James Calvert is one of the best REALTORS® we had the pleasure of meeting. He helped us totally to assist us in finding our dream vacation home in Gulf Shores, AL. We love the purchase and he was always honest during the negotiations. At no point did he lead us into a quick purchase. He is the one that we will choose for our real estate needs the next time round. Thank You James!”
—Monaz and Yezad
“I recently made a new home purchase in April of 2016 with Kandy Hines of “The Pro Team” at the Gulf Shores RE/MAX office, and wanted to say what a great experience I had with her. She was always looking out for my best interest, and kept me informed with everything during our new home purchase. Kandy was always accessible and quick to respond to questions we had. Since I was an out of town buyer I thought it would be a stressful process, but she made everything easy and smooth. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Kandy or any of “The Pro Team” to family and friends…. give them a call and you will be surprised how easy home buying can be when working with a great partner!”
—Craig & Betsy R.
“I purchased a Seacrest condo in Gulf Shores through your agency over three years ago…August 2012 if memory serves. After looking for a beach property for over two years and consulting with four different realtors in the Gulf Shores and Orange Beach area, I decided to go with Kandy Hines and RE/MAX of Gulf Shores due to the level of professionalism, amount of information provided, and also the great customer service that was provided during my search for and purchase of my beach condo. After I bought my condo, the continued support from Kandy was extraordinary. This fall I sold my condo, with the help of Kandy and “The Pro Team” and I couldn’t have asked for better support, especially given my current location and job which presented a slight challenge with selling from a distance. I look forward to working with your team again down the road when I look for another beach property.
Thanks again for the wonderful team support!!!
I sold my home in July only because of Kandy Hines’s hard work and perseverance. Kandy was recommended to my spouse and me by our friend. Kandy met with us and answered all of our questions and addressed all our concerns. She gave us tips about what we could do to update the house and make it “show” successfully, and helped us determine a selling price. For each showing she provided feedback and stayed in contact with us regularly, and when we got an offer she helped us with a counteroffer. Kandy Hines is the kindest, most knowledgeable, most professional and the hardest working real estate agent I have ever seen and had the pleasure of working with.
My thanks to Kandy and The Pro Team.”

“My name is Thomas B. and I am writing this correspondence as the result of another outstanding experience my wife and I recently had with “The Pro Team” in Gulf Shores Alabama.
Our association with “The Pro Team” and Dotty Farias began over fifteen (15) years ago in 1999 when my wife and I were searching for an additional gulf front condo in Orange Beach Alabama. That purchase was to be consummated as a 1031 exchange. Dotty worked relentlessly and eventually located two (2) condos at Phoenix V. We later purchased those two condo’s, which perfectly met our needs at that time.
We kept in contact over the years and in July of this year decided to put our first Orange Beach condo up for sale and due to our past experience, again contacted “The Pro Team.”
Dotty and her staff again worked with us to find a buyer and to sell this unit. As soon as that sale was consummated, Dotty began assisting us with alternative properties for another 1031 exchange situation.
Dotty and her assistant Sam Goodson provided us with various sale properties that possibly could meet our needs. This year our family is growing to five (5) grand boys and our goal was to house the family close to one another.
“The Pro Team” researched various properties for sale at Phoenix V where we currently have a one, three bedroom and a one, one bedroom condo on the sixth floor. As it turned out, Dotty researched condos on the sixth floor as well as the floors above and below our condos. Through her efforts we were able to secure a very attractive three-bedroom unit within two doors from our others.
Once again Dotty provided us with the assistance to find an outstanding property meeting our current needs, consummate a 1031 exchange within the required timeframe at a reasonable price.
We can’t thank Dotty and her staff enough for all the hard work they did on our behalf. Fifteen years ago we had an outstanding experience with “The Pro Team” and the same holds true today.
Thanks again for all your work on our behalf!”
—Tom and Nancy B.
“Dotty is the most amazing agent! In 4 days she had 3 full price offers and above on my home. We closed with absolutely no problems. She handles every detail smoothly and efficiently. Very knowledgeable, professional, and her team is wonderful. I was never out of contact with them. Someone was always there to answer any question. The photographer was extremely good and took her time to capture just the right view. Be nice to yourself and use Dotty Lou – The Pro Team!”
—Richard & Shelby G.
“Words cannot express our gratitude to Dotty for the way she handled all aspects of our home sale. She was forthright and honest, extremely responsive to our needs throughout the process and remained consistent to the close. Dotty brings the perfect balance of industry experience and savvy leadership, negotiation skills, common sense, and customer support.
We hired the Pro Team to take over the sale of our home from another real estate company who failed us with much talk and little action. We were looking for a company that was reliable and creative “who walked the talk” and the Pro Team delivered well beyond expectations.
We also lived away from the home during a portion of the sales process and required a long distance closing. Dotty, Sam and team rose to the occasion and handled a host of incidentals on our behalf during our absence. Their actions greatly helped to ease our fears of not being there. The trust factor was immeasurable.
Many thanks got out to Dotty and team for shepherding us through this challenging process. If you want results look no further!!!”
—Tony and Patty O.
"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!"
—Craig & Bestsy R., Foley, AL
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."
