Get to Know Auburn Realtor Jeff Clary Video

I’m Jeff Clary and I’ve been in real estate for about 13 years.

Why do you love selling real estate in the Auburn/Opelika area?

                It’s all about the people. I love working with people. I worked with people for over 30 years in the Auburn extension and I’m helping folks that why I like it.

 What question do you get asked most about real estate?

                Everyone wants to know about the Auburn, Lee County and Opelika area. It is the most wonderful place to live and the most wonderful place to retire and there are a lot of reasons for that like our healthcare, our educational system our recreational but it goes back to great people who live in the this area.

 What is the one interesting fact you have learned as a real estate agent?

                As a real estate agent we have to be very aware that we are dealing with a product that usually cost more to a family than any other purchase they are ever going to make. We have got to be aware of that and we have to put ourselves into their position of can they afford it, is it going to work for them especially financially.

 What are your favorite things about the Auburn area? 

                Auburn, Opelika, Lee County and East Central Alabama, as I said is a wonderful place to live. There are lots of things to do here. I personally like to garden, I like to play tennis, I love watersports (water skiing and wake boarding). I love to snow ski when we go out of town. I have a lot of hobbies. Work to be me is really a hobby. I just love being a real estate agent.

 What do you want to say to the Auburn community?

                The Auburn community is a great place to live, to work and to raise a family. We have a lot of associations and organizations across the nations that are saying this about our area.

 What has been your most memorable transaction & why?

                I have been fortunate to do 40 to 50 transactions per year for 13 years but recently I worked with a young couple who had very little money, who had only been renting and their heart was set on a home to actually call theirs. We worked for several months and finally found the perfect house. I worked with them on getting a mortgage that they could handle and live with and the closing was very teary-eyed with happiness. There is just nothing like getting a hug from both husband and wife that you have done a job that they wanted done and a place they are so excited about living in.
