About Us

Real Estate Associates began in 1990 under ownership of Hazel Bingham Porter. Her son Jerry Mack Bingham Jr. took over the company in 2006-2007. I purchased a partnership in 2012 and remain the managing partner and qualifying broker with 18 active agents on board.

Since the 1990's, our company has become a multi-faceted business that operates with you, the customer, at the forefront of our day-to-day operations. We are well known and respected in the community and our philosophies are based on both honesty and integrity. As a client centered business, you will receive personal service and be backed by a reputable company.This year our top 3 agents sold over $5 million each in 2014 in real estate respectively. We are well on target again for 2015. I consider that quite a year. We are 3 transactions behind the South's largest Alabama real estate franchise. If the market holds true to our calculations we will more than exceed our company's expectations again this year.

We implement multi-level marketing strategies that benefit our clients with every transaction. We have an on staff IT professional that understands web advertising and how to push our company on the internet.

Our real estate agents have extensive access to information about the communities in which they deal. This includes, but is not limited to: schools, populations, recreation, entertainment, home values, growth potential and surrounding areas. Many agents live in the areas we serve and therefore can more accurately overcome potential obstacles and focus on the unique needs of our clients.

Our commercial division is well-equipped to provide today's growing number of real estate investors with opportunities for both income and commercial properties.

Our property management division is building each quarter. This division is going into it's second year and continues to flourish. We welcome investors to our list of managed properties. Our set of guidelines are here to protect our sellers and tenants alike.

Land in Central Alabama is well sought after. We welcome all land and lot listings. Our land listings and sales are shared on all web sites and includes lake lots, recreational parcels, timber or investment properties, bank-owned and residential lots.

The real estate market is always changing and as a result, our agents regularly attend training sessions and events to further their knowledge and be sure that they are focusing on current conditions that affect today's buyers and sellers. This type of training is imperative if we are to be successful in obtaining top dollar on home sales. Our goal is to make sure that we satisfy the special needs of all of our clients and at the same time make the process and transactions go as smoothly as possible.

Our company is dedicated to maintaining a professional, trustworthy relationship with our clients.
