Happy Clients: Cason and Tyler Daugherty

2037 Highlands Drive in Hoover.

We were first time sellers who decided to sell during a short and hectic timeframe, and it would have been overwhelming without the Wald Group.
Hayden, Mike, and Stacy are outstanding professionals who provided clear guidance and stability to us throughout the entire process. We can’t thank them enough for everything they did for us!

We recently listed 2064 Cahaba Crest Drive in Altadena Woods. It's a beautiful 3 bedroom, 3.5 bath home with finished den down and a spacious, level backyard. The weekend it hit the market, we had 27 showings. By Monday, we had multiple offers and the listing was under contract for well over asking. We believe this level of interest is a strong indication of the neighborhood's popularity. 

Altadena Woods is a wonderful place to live for several reasons- great schools (zoned for Spain Park), convenient location (just south of Vestavia off Caldwell Mill Road), walkable neighborhood, attractively designed homes with great curb appeal, and a nice balance empty nesters and families with kids.

Altadena Woods by the numbers: There are 211 homes in the…

This beautiful garden home in Caldwell Crossings had showings every 30 minutes all day long on the first Saturday it was listed. The next day the Open House was attended by over 30 groups. By Monday we had received six offers and the winning buyers agreed to pay $20,000 over asking price. Several factors contributed to the popularity of this listing. The home has great curb appeal, a functional and open floor plan, and a spacious level backyard. The location is convenient, too. We also believe that the home's location has the potential to make it a great investment- it's in the path of progress. Empty nesters selling their larger homes in Vestavia and Mountain Brook want their next home to be nearby to the things they've grown accustomed to- their…
