Clementine T

I was ready to sell my rental property and had been contacted by several investors. After speaking with Dan I knew that Gulf Shores Homebuyers was the right choice for me. Dan made me feel comfortable, there was no pressure, he was honest and most importantly he followed through on exactly what he had promised.

I’ve now worked with Dan to sell two properties and he will be my first call in the future because of his professionalism.

I had an investment property that I no longer wanted to deal with. Dan and I coordinated all of the details over the phone, we actually still haven’t met in person because of my travel schedule but the process was so simple we never needed to.

Dan bought the property within a couple of weeks, he coordinated all of the closing details and I received my check in the mail; it really was THAT simple!

Bruce B

I bought a home from Gulf Shores Homebuyers and had a great experience. Dan and I sat in the kitchen and had a straightforward discussion about what would work for us both. I found Dan to be very honest and easy to work with. We love our home and we loved the cordial process of working with Gulf Shores Homebuyers.
