Helped me buy home
Alan was very professional and responsive in the whole process of helping us to find and buy a home. He knows Dahlonega and surrounding areas very well, as a local--this is a very important trait to find in a good realtor. He answered questions promptly via email and telephone, and over the course of a month or so, showed us all of the properties we were interested in looking at--both land and homes. When we found the house we wanted to buy, Alan gave good advice on a starting offer and guided us through the "unusual" process of buying a foreclosed property at a fair price. Closing went very smoothly. You couldn't ask for a better realtor, and I would highly recommend Alan Grizzle to anyone looking to buy in the Dahlonega area. Less ... More

I actually found Alan through the internet so I am glad I can give him this review. When looking for an agent to sell my property, I had contacted several but was still not sure that they could perform in 2011's harsh real estate market. I contacted Alan because I saw how many places his posted his listings and I figured he would at least be aggressive on getting my home viewed. Happily, after I signed with him some one I really had never met, volunteered that there was only one agent I should use, etc.etc. I told them that I had already selected a guy, and they still kept pushing. Eventually, he said that his agent was Alan Grizzle so we laughed that I must have made a good decision! And I did. Alan was candid and honest in all dealings, and always returned calls, and took time to be thorough with me and my wife. It took a little time but he finally put a deal together for us. Everything went smooth at closing. And while I doubt everyone these days wishes they could have sold for more, in hindsight, I really don't think I could have ever negotiated a better deal. But that is not really why I take the time to give him this testimonial. 7 months after the deal, I had a question about the closing, kind of a tax question. I really did not want to burden him with the question, as it was more for an accountant. But I finally said maybe he will be able to answer it quick. Well, despite my apologies, he took at least 30 minutes out of his evening to look online, and check some info and gave me a thorough answer. He did not have to do that as there was definitely nothing in it for him. While he does work hard for his money, I think a greater testimonial is that he has that special character to help me out when there was no money or deal involved. Really just because he is that good. Not really a short endorsement, but sometimes things need to be stressed. And in times when we all seem to have to rush and so many professionals seem to focus only how fast they can get you out of the door, I am especially pleased to say: I would most highly recommend Alan Grizzle to anyone that needs a real estate agent.

I brought several properties to Alan to view from Zillow. He was very helpful showing me the properties I requested and once he knew what I was looking for, he had some sugestions that were even better than what I had researched. His knowledge of the area and willingness to work with other agents to help you find what you want is exceptional. Thank You Alan, and looking forward to doing business with you!

I'm not sure if Alan had his family write all the reviews above but my experience with him was quite average. Matter of fact, we lost some good homes due to his lack of attention to the market or his unwillingness to show us homes that he would not make the maximum commission on. His responsiveness was average. If you call, prepare to wait for a call back. His lack of of enthusiasm and care show in his poor negotiation skills. I practically coached him the entire way. Alan is a nice guy but when I buy a home, I want someone that is a fighter and go getter so I dont lose out on the top properties when they come on the market. My advice is to find a young hungry realtor and put them to work. Alan simply has past his prime or just doesn't care. Less ... More
Response fromAlan Grizzle
Please note this comment came one day after I refused to show someone properties outside my service area. The person was very upset I was unwilling to schedule two days to drive them all over 5 counties in North Georgia to look at foreclosures priced from $17,500 to $30,000. There were no listings available in the area I service in that price range at that time. I am happy to show properties in any price range in Dahlonega and Dawsonville Georgia. I do not show properties in any price range all over the state. I chose to be an expert in my market rather than driving around lost looking at homes in areas I know nothing about. You would think if someone was getting such horrible service described in this review they would have found another Realtor. I have never sold a property to a Dr. White Less ... More

Wow, what a great real estate agent. I am an experienced real estate investor and I have literally dealt with dozens if not hundreds of real estate agents over my 15 years career and can tell you that Alan is in the top 5 of all those agents. If you are looking to buy or sell, go no further, use him.

Patient, honest, approachable, frank, knowledgeable: just a few words that describe this realtor as he walked us through our first home-buying experience. Alan worked with us for more than a year trying to find the perfect foreclosure property. He was helpful and polite, and he knows every bit of the area (and apparently nearly everyone who lives here too). Alan gave great advice when we were making offers, but always left the final number in our hands--there was zero pressure to go higher (or lower). There was a sudden paperwork error that would have prevented us from closing if Alan (and our lender, Leland Cox) had not had the expertise and tenacity to get it resolved that day. As my wife says, we would never have survived if we hadn't been working with Alan. I would recommend him without reservation to anyone who asked. Less ... More

Alans knowledge of the real estate market was very impressive.he sold our home very fast and was very helpful throughout the process.He got our listing information out quickly and our home was only up for sale about a month before someone was interested.And with the economy the way it is we were very suprised it sold that quickly.I highly recommend alan if you want to sell quick.
