Great Southern Real Estate
Kay and Gary Gilpin are residents of Gulf Shores, having moved down from Atlanta in 2004. Actually Kay came first in 2002 and when Gary could not drag her away from Gulf Shores even for weekends, he sold he business and their home in Atlanta and joined her, first at the Beach Club and later in their home on the north shore of Little Lagoon. Along with their two labs, Bubba and Zucca, they enjoy the wonderful joy of living and working in paradise with longs views of the Lagoon and across west beach to the gulf. They both love to fish and Gary is an avid if not proficient golfer and both hope actually to find time sometime to enjoy those pastimes.. For now, at least, the views are good.
Partners in Great Southern Real Estate, Kay is a licensed broker and Gary a licensed sales person. Both are passionate about the business, working to provide professional support and personal insight to every client. Kay's background in design and Gary's in resort and real estate marketing make them a powerful team. They work the market constantly, keeping abreast of the changes locally as well the state and national issues in insurance and financing to provide their clients with as much information and support as they can provide.
They are both very active in the Coastal Alabama Business Chamber, donating their time to give back to the community to help it grow and prosper. Kay was awarded Amabassador of the Year for 2013 by the Chamber and Gary, now a member of the Chamber's Board of Directors, received a special award for his efforts in rebranding the chamber

Gary did a great job of helping us price our home to sell and negotiating with potential buyers. He was always quick to respond to our inquires and represented us well to buyers, tilte company and loan oficers.

To date, I have worked with Kay to purchase 5 independent properties. Kay takes customer service to a new level. She will absolutely do what it takes to service and protect her clients. She clearly understands the Gulf Coast market and the ever changing dynamics in this economy. A knowledgeable realtor is a critical choice to insure success in this environment.

Gary and Kay Gilpin are the most professional and hardworking real estate expert agents that we have ever worked with to buy a home. Gary continued to follow up on everything involved in the settlement process and expedited our bank and underwriting process to ensure we could have settlement when we were promised. He took care of everything and then some! He is an excellent agent and we would highly recommend him for anyone buying or selling a home. Kay and Gary work hand in hand to get the job done. They both work tirelessly together to ensure the family is totally satisfied and the job is done!

We needed a lot of help and Gary and Kay helped us through all the processes of buying a condo. Thanks to them we now own a property that is earning us revenue and will allow us quality time at the beach with family and friends. They were truly hands on and caring.

Couldn't possibly be happier with the excellent service provided both in selling our condo and the purchase of our new home. Being over 5 hours away made it difficult to be on site for various things that we were needed for, Gary and his staff were on the spot taking care of every single one for us without hesitation. I would most definitely recommend Gary and Shelli for all your selling and buying needs.

My husband and I were purchasing a condo during the BP Oilspill time period. Kay was honest and helpful with us during the entire process. We were initially looking for a small 2/2 condo, and were fortunate, only through her diligent efforts, able to find a 3/2 Penthouse that was beyond what we thought was possible. She was in contact with other realtors, and seems to know everyone in the area. She is called upon for advice as well as as knowledge in the area and what is available, coming available or even a possible sale. We enjoyed working with her through the mortgage process, and we were definitely not the easiest to be approved since my husband had just retired and I was self-employed. She directed us to good restaurants, and also to local vendors when the time came to make some repairs and replacements in the condo. We could not be happier. She is unique in a field of realtors who sometimes can get caught up in the commissions, and we never felt that way with Kay. It was about us being happy and having a stress free experience during our purchase. She is reliable, and came most highly recommended from another realtor. We were more than satisfied with the services, and have in fact recommended her to several of our friends looking for rental property. Her efforts and integrity are consistant. She is a gem in the real estate industry!

Gary was with me every step of the house hunt, negotiation, and purchase. I was very satisfied with the entire process and have already recommended Gary to a family member.

Kay Gilpin is every realty client's dream realtor. She worked extremely hard to get our condo property sold. She put herself out, over and above what you would normally expect. She is knowledgable and efficient and a bulli-dog about follow up with mortgage banks and title companies. We could not have been more pleased with our experience in working with her.

Kay is a wonderful person who is, among other excellent traits, a great listener and negotiator. Her connections along the Alabama / Florida Gulf Coast are impeccable. She has helped me close multiple transactions valued at well over 1 million dollars. Without her, my confidence in working real estate transactions would be risky at best.

The Gilpins did an outstanding job helping us purchase our home. From the time we viewed the home to closing they were our advocates. We would highly recommend them to anyone considering buying real estate in lower Alabama.
