It was a pleasure working with Heather and Julie at Paramount Properties. They listed our house and had it sold in what seems like record time for the subdivision we were located in. While our house was up for sale they showed us numerous other houses until we finally settled on one in the Lake View community.  They took great care to work around our schedules and family time to make sure we got everything we needed and in the time we had to have it by. Heather and Julie were there at the closings of both houses to make sure everything went great and it did.  We enjoyed getting to work with and know both Heather and Julie. We are sure they would be a great help to anyone looking to sell or buy house.

Warmest Regards,

Dear Heather,

Thank you so much for helping us find our first home together! As young newlyweds, it is easy to get taken advantage of and be rushed into making a bad purchase. We knew you were the right person for us immediately. During that initial phone call, you asked us all the appropriate questions, and within a few hours, you had already emailed us a list of homes to review. You always considered our needs and desires. You took time away from your own wedding plans to work around our crazy schedule of night shifts and the demands of an infant! You made our first home buying experience comfortable and stress-free. I cannot thank you enough for going above and beyond what most realtors would do! We LOVE our new home, but we will definitely come to you for any real estate needs in the future. Everyone should have YOU as a REALTOR!

Thank you again,

Lori and Jason Stephens
First Time Home Buyers


Selling a house can be one of the most stressful situations you have to deal with in today’s economy fortunately we were lucky to have Julie Cook there with us the entire time. She made it as easy and painless as possible.  Her knowledge of the market and her determination are things to admire. She kept us well informed of leads and possible buyers.  She also placed our home in current circulations to have it viewed by as many people as possible.  Her detection to her clients is one of the most professional and kind I have ever had the pleasure of meeting.  She is a great asset to any reality agency, and I would recommend her to anyone who is in the market to buy or sell a home.

Thank you,

Greg Click and Ken Andrews



As first time homebuyers, the process of finding a home for our little family of three seemed overwhelming at first. We are so glad that we chose Chloe to walk us through the process! Chloe was very professional, and we were confident that she had our best interest in mind. She diligently sought out prospective homes, stayed in contact with us regularly, and worked around our schedule, (which is tough to do, as we both are hospital employees.) When we decided on which house to make our home, Chloe was there to negotiate on our behalf to get us the best deal. We are simply ecstatic with our new home, and we have Chloe to thank for helping us make our homeowner dreams come true!

As a first time home buyer, I was clueless about what questions I needed to ask and nervous about the process of buying a home. I personally want to thank My REALTOR, Heather McDaniel Speed, with Paramount Properties for making buying a first home so easy. All of my questions were answered and even those I did not know to ask. She guided me through the process with care and ease. Thank you for making this transition for my family simple!!!

My husband and I had a wonderful experience using Julie as our REALTOR. We were first time homebuyers and Julie was able to be patient with us and work around our schedules as we were in search of our first home. We couldn’t be happier with the home that she found for us! Julie has the knowledge and integrity we appreciate. We'll never use anyone else!

I would like to take a moment to thank Heather McDaniel Speed for her help in the purchase of our home. This was our first home purchase and she guided us through every step of the way. She was highly dedicated and persistent. She handled every challenge quickly and smoothly. She never accepted NO, always assuring us this was just part of the process to keep our anxiety down. She is honest, kind and easy to work with. She works hard for her clients, I would strongly recommend Heather to anyone who is in the market for a REALTOR.

Chloe helped us buy our first house in Tuscaloosa and she was amazingly helpful. She was diligent, responsive and understanding. She responded to my text messages or e-mail quickly, and worked hard to show us all the houses that we wanted to see as early as possible. She has excellent communication skills and was very patient. In addition, she was always pleasant and delightful to work with. I can confidently recommend Chloe to my friends who are looking for a realtor.

Not long after my husband and I decided to list our starter home, we found the perfect "forever home." We were worried this dream house would get snatched up, but Julie was able to sell our house quickly and even coordinated both closings on the same day. That dream home is now ours! She made the process stress-free and we could not have done it without her.

As a first time home buyer, I had no clue where to even begin.  Julie immediately set me in the right direction of getting a financial adviser and finding out exactly what my needs/wants were for my future home.  She was always only a phone call away whenever I had questions, and was even willing to do a last minute viewing that eventually became my personal home!  I would without a doubt and without hesitation recommend Julie for your home buying/selling needs.  She is great at what she does!
