Though relatively new to the real estate industry, Top Agent Missey DeGroff of Alabama Real Estate Solutions in Madison, Alabama is already solidifying her reputation as an agent who can be counted on to provide top-notch customer service to all her buyers and sellers. Possessing a winning combination of a charming, outgoing personality and a fierce determination, there is little doubt she is quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with.
Missey began her journey in real estate in October of 2016. A former Controller / Accountant / Financial Analyst working in the government contracting sector for major companies like Boeing, she found herself growing dissatisfied with the frequent tedium of a nine-to-five desk job. “My friends would always tell me that I was such a people person,” Missey recalls. “They suggested I get out and do something that I’d enjoy. When they suggested real estate, I told them that I wasn’t a salesperson. But then I started to get really burned out and decided to give it a try. Since I’ve become a Realtor, I absolutely love it. I love being able to help people.”
Selling the entirety of Northern Alabama, Missy quickly distinguished herself as a go-getter, and in spite of warnings that it would take a while to establish herself she closed on seven deals her first year in the business, and is well on track to exceed that in the current year. A large portion of her business is referrals, and those who have worked with her are quick to sing her praises. Among the many glowing reviews on her business Facebook page is this one, which clearly illustrates the gratitude her clients feel for her: “Missey is amazing…she was in contact with us every single day and made the process so easy and less stressful than it could have been. It was our first home purchase and she explained everything to us and answered all of our questions…thankful she was our Realtor. She took care of us, and we love our home.”
“I’m a very customer-driven Realtor,” Missey says. “I take care of my clients. I just love helping them through the whole process, explaining it every step of the way.” Missey has a reputation as a Realtor who frequently goes above and beyond for her customers. “I had a client once who was about to move into his house, but the lawn needed mowing, so I called the guy who does my yard and asked him to please mow their lawn. I just do those little things, because they mean a lot to people.”
Missey’s former career absolutely informs her approach to real estate. “I’m also a numbers person,” she explains, “so when it comes to closings I’ll walk them through every line item. I’ll provide my sellers with every possible scenario. I like to make sure there are no surprises at the closing table.” Missey’s detail-oriented approach, along with her exceptional work ethic, informs everything she does as a Realtor.
Missey believes that giving back to her community is of vital importance, and to that end she is involved with multiple philanthropic endeavors. Most recently, she served as Team Leader for The American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life. She is also actively involved with the Vegetable Garden program of CASA (Care Assurance System for the Aging and Homebound), a non-profit agency that provides multiple services to in-need community elders. Missey also gives back to the real estate industry, through her mentoring of new agents.
When she’s not working, Missey enjoys beach time with her family. She is also an avid reader, and passionate about gardening. “When I’m stressed out,” she says, “I’ll just go read a book or go work in my flowerbed.”
Looking to the future, Missey’s goals include obtaining her Broker’s License, something she plans to accomplish this year. Other than that, her primary objective is to continue to grow her business and maintain the excellent level of client service that is quickly becoming synonymous with her name. “I want to keep doing this for another twenty years,” she says with a laugh.
