Discover Homes for Sale Throughout the Fairhope, AL Area
Fairhope is a charming small town, nesting on the eastern bluffs of Mobile Bay. The Bay is a part of Fairhope life like none of the other cities along the shores. A quarter mile long pier reaches out into the Bay, allowing fishermen, exercisers and strollers a peaceful place to spend a little time.
Wise planning over 100 years ago, set aside a great expanse of parkland alongside the Bay for residents and visitors to enjoy. People gather around the waters edge near the rose garden fountain and big pier to witness some of the most spectacular sunsets you’ll ever see. And clap to show God their appreciation!
Fairhope has a number of distinct neighborhoods offering a variety of homes for sale. The Bluff has large homes, both old and new, in the higher ranges. The Fruit and Nut district has a mix of smaller, older cottages and new craftsman style cottages. These large cottages have even been labeled a style all their own; Fairhope Cottages.
Beyond the downtown area you will find older neighborhoods built in the 1970’s that are situated on larger lots. Many of these homes have been renovated and updated with more modern amenities. On the eastern side of US 98 you will find newer developments. Some are made up of small, villa styled homes, while others are full of your conventional styled homes of the 21st Century.
Your Local, Homegrown Realtor
My name is Connie Fidler Glassford; Connie. I was born in Mobile and brought home to be raised in Silverhill, just 7 miles from the big, Municipal Pier. I can remember as a little girl, coming into Fairhope on Wednesday afternoon and Saturday morning for market days. I watched dirt roads in Fairhope became paved, entire neighborhoods spring up from pecan orchards and schools move to newer buildings.
I’ve always been interested in property. My father is a farmer, and from the time I was little I’ve worked alongside him, while he gave me words of wisdom about God’s beautiful earth. I ran my own businesses where I worked hard to meet the needs of my clients. And five years ago I put both worlds together and became a real estate agent.
I worked hard, I studied hard, I learned from more experienced agents. I hit the ground running and became a top agent quickly. I recently earned my brokers license and opened my own office.
I would be happy to help you to sell your Fairhope home or to find the right home for you among the many homes for sale.
