John Newell, AL REALTOR®

A native of Anniston, AL, I moved to Birmingham 10 years ago from Fort Worth, Texas where I worked for the Caterpiller Corporation. I was the manager of the Inspector Network for Iron Planet, an online auction company for heavy equipment. I headed up a team of internal people as well as over 300 Independent contractors who produced reports that provided detailed inspections on each machine that was up for auction.

I love this area. I know the neighborhoods well and can help you select the best one for your family’s needs. I use the latest internet marketing tools to market your property to the widest possible range of qualified buyers.  I LISTEN to my clients and work tirelessly on their behalf. Let me assist you with your real estate needs.

What my clients say about me:

“When I was first referred to John, he contacted me right away and kept the lines of communication open to understand my goals, thoughts and concerns as someone moving from out-of-state. He knew the process would take a few months and he was patient and diligent in finding homes to suit my family’s needs. Throughout the process, I was confident that John was working with utmost integrity and was concerned with my best interest.

As home purchases go, a number of points had to be negotiated, which John did on my behalf with excellence, resulting in less stress for me (yay!) and an extremely smooth closing.

I highly recommend John as a realtor to anyone buying or selling a home. He will do a good job for you!”

“John was an absolute champion during my whole home buying experience. As a first time homebuyer, I didn’t anticipate just how difficult it would be to find the right home in a competitive market. John was with me every step of the way and went above and beyond until we were finally able to close on a house my fiancé and I absolutely love.”
