Biography and Background
After graduating from Auburn, I returned home to my family?s dairy farm to work. During that time, I met my husband Brycen, who is a builder in Auburn/Opelika. He encouraged me to get my real estate license, not realizing what he thought would be my hobby would turn into my favorite career! I currently serve the area as The Dave Ramsey Real Estate ELP (endorsed local provider) and am a Board Member for the Lee County Association of Realtors. Education is important to me, and I have earned the Associate Broker, Graduate Realtor Institute, and Accredited Buyer Representative designations.
Currently I am working on my Certified Residential Specialist, one of the most elite designations in the industry. Since I have been in the business, I have consistently been one of the top agents in my company.
We have a son & daughter. We enjoy living in Auburn/Opelika so much! Brycen enjoys woodworking, cycling, mountain biking, and kayaking. I enjoying reading, running, and gardening. We both love to cook, as well as go out to eat to fine dining! Listening to live music is also a favorite hobby. Lee County provides all of this and more.
Ryan Edwards, another agent in the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices firm, and I decided to become a real estate team in 2009 to combine our talents to better serve our clients and grow our business. We promise to serve our clients and treat them how WE would want to be treated!
“Annie was incredibly helpful and patient with this tricky transaction. I fell like she handled several things for us that were not her responsibility but that helped us out in many ways. I thought she always had our best interest in mind and did a great job communicating. I think the service was excellent. Annie always provided feedback from potential buyers, is well connected in the community, was helpful with some challenges at the end. I would recommend her to anyone buying or selling in the Auburn area.”
“Our agent, Annie Rankin Williams represented our needs with energy and enthusiasm. She had to deal with ever changing needs, problems and requests and did so with a great attitude. After a grueling six months of negotiations on several houses we walked away with just the right house in a perfect location. Thank you to Annie for all of her professional assistance.
Our agent, Annie Williams, is tops.”
“We have used several agents before and thought we knew what to expect, but you really did go out of your way to separate yourself from the other agents we have worked with in the past. We appreciate it and hope we can keep in contact. It truly was great working with you. Thank you!
“Annie was extremely professional and Helpful. She treated me more as a longtime friend than just a customer. A Plus agent. Annie Williams was our agent and went above and beyond any expectation we had of an agent representing us as we moved into a new town. She was helpful, available, knowledgeable and we are very appreciative of her efforts.”
“Annie was awesome. She is a great asset for your company. Thanks so much.”
“Annie was a terrific agent! I recommend her to all of my friends.”
I have had the experience and pleasure of both buying and selling a house in Auburn using team, Annie Williams—Ryan Edwards and their wonderful support staff composed of Moriah and Jordan. I don’t use the word “team” lightly. Having experienced working with so called “teams” before, I often found that one member of the “team” had no idea what another member of the “team” was doing. The real estate team of Williams—Edwards worked liked a well-maintained piece of machinery. Each of the 4 members was so helpful to me in both the real estate buying and selling process.
When I purchased the home, Annie supported me in my purchase by not only providing comp information on neighboring homes, but helping me align crafts people to make needed renovations. Not only were her design ideas helpful, but she brought out a designer to give me a second opinion on both modifications to the home but colors as well. I thought that was particularly nice of Annie. Importantly, Ryan and Annie helped me to negotiate a fair price for both the seller and myself (buyer). I couldn’t have asked for more.
Some time later, I decided to sell the home I had purchased. Given my previous experience with the Williams—Edwards’ team, there was no doubt in my mind who I was going to use as an agent. From the perspective of a seller, I really experienced additional dimensions of their team approach. Both Ryan and Annie came to the house, examined it thoroughly, suggested additional updates I should consider, and directed me to quality workers who could implement those updates on time and at a fair price. They also counseled regarding some of my ideas, which were likely unnecessary. In the end, they were very helpful in suggesting a fair offering price for the home.
Once the home was advertised, Jordan kept me updated regarding Web views of the home, comments from other realtors following realtor showing, and comments from potential buyers about the home. The advertising of the home including Web-based videos and photos was exceptional.
As interest in my home developed, Annie kept me updated regarding various offers that were made. Both Ryan and Annie were always available by telephone, text, and email. Like buying a home, selling one is also stressful. Team Williams—Edwards were with me every step of the way.
Moriah helped coordinate the staging of the home and the closing process. Ryan and Annie kept in touch with the buyer’s agent regarding questions I had and answering for me, questions the buyer had about the home. Moriah had all dates and paperwork ready for the closing and made the actual sale of the house a very smooth and reasonably stress-free process.
I highly recommend working with Annie and Ryan. In my opinion, you are getting the best I have experienced and that includes buying and selling single homes in Knoxville, New Orleans, Berkeley California, and Australia. If I purchase another home in Auburn, I will be returning to team Williams—Edwards with Berkshire-Hathaway.
Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices's agents are some of the most knowledgeable in the area. Contact Annie Williams today using the information above. Annie would be happy to serve you and answer your questions about Auburn real estate.
