About Us

Real Estate Associates began in 1990 under the ownership of Hazel Bingham. Her son, Jerry Mack Bingham Jr. took over the company in 2006. Diane Knight, qualifying broker, became a partner in 2012 and later purchased the company. The company now has 24 active agents.

Since the 1990's Real Estate Associates has grown into a multi-faceted business that operates with you, the customer, at the forefront. Real Estate Associates has become well known and respected in Central Alabama in residential, commercial, property management and land sales. Our company prides itself on character, being truthful and honest and holding ourselves to a higher standard of integrity.

As a client-centered business, you will receive personal service and be backed by a reputable company.

This year the Birmingham Association of Realtors named three of our agents in the Top 100 of all 5000 active members/agents in the Birmingham Association. If the current market trends hold true, we will exceed last year's goals by far.

We continue to expand online marketing and are currently implementing several multi-level marketing strategies to benefit our clients, both buyers and sellers, on each and every transaction.

Our real estate agents have extensive access to information about all surrounding counties and their respective communities. This includes, but is not limited to: schools, populations, recreation, entertainment, home values, growth potential and surrounding areas. Many agents live within 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.

We also have land and lots and our rural areas are well sought after as investment properties. 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 are encouraged to regularly attend training sessions and events. 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 needs of all of our clients and at the same time make the process and transaction go as smoothly as possible.

Our company is dedicated to maintaining a professional and trustworthy relationship with all of our clients and customers.
