My name is Gwen Reid, and I know Birmingham! In fact, I have lived in the Birmingham area for the majority of my life, except for 3 years when I lived in Huntsville working for IBM in Accounting. When IBM moved its Accounting department to Owego, New York, I returned to Birmingham and started working for BellSouth in the IT department.
A couple of years before my retirement, I started thinking about life after BellSouth because I knew that I could not come home and just sit around. I have to be active! So I started taking real estate classes with LAH, and I really enjoyed the training and became a licensed agent. At first I was working part-time in real estate while still working full-time in the corporate arena. I actually closed my first real estate transaction on the day that I retired from my full-time job. That was the beginning of my next chapter.
I am married with two adult children and a grand-dog named Dakota. My husband and I live with Dakota in Hoover. My husband, son, and daughter have all served or are still serving in the military. We love Tricare! Dakota was originally my son’s dog, and we had to bring home from North Carolina eight years ago for one of his many deployments. We have had him ever since, so I guess he is ours now. I graduated from Stillman College with a BA in Business Administration (minor in Accounting) and from UAB with a MA in Business Administration. I am the Chairman of the Supervisory Committee and Member of the Board of Directors for the Sixth Avenue Baptist Federal Credit Union. My education and work experience have given me a wide range of skills that help me manage every stage of a real estate transaction.
I enjoy meeting people and getting to know them. My goal is to provide quality service and help my clients fulfill their real estate needs and dreams to the best of my ability. I understand that buying or selling a home can sometimes be a daunting or intimidating experience, so my goal is for the process to be stress-free, smooth, and a “win” for my clients.
Call me for your real estate needs. I can help you and your family “win with Gwen!”
