Tuscaloosa Over Covid

    Well, we did it! 

    We have made it through something not many have experienced or will experience again in their lifetime. The unknown was somewhat scary but watching our community of Tuscaloosa come together in positivity and kindness has been a truly beautiful thing to watch. As we anxiously await the return of our regular routines, we wanted to take a few minutes to reflect on how blessed we truly are! 

    The quarantine has taught us a couple of things here at The Alice Maxwell Team.

    First, it taught us to enjoy the moment. Distractions are a given, but with the extra time we got our daily dose of MLS and Social Media, while still having time to unplug with our families. As some normalcy returns, we hope you will join us in continuing to find time to unplug and enjoy our lives in the present. 

     Second, it taught us to enjoy the gift of time. It is not often that we get this much quality time with the ones we love. From family dinners to family karaoke, filling each day with activities has been a test of creativity. Sure, somedays have been easier than others, but we are choosing to remember this season with a grateful heart because we were given a gift of the extra uninterrupted time with our people. 

     

    End your quarantine with a bang.

    In the spirit of quarantine, the opportunity of unplugging, and the gift of time; WE HAVE A CHALLENGE FOR YOU! 

    Take advantage of the last days of the quarantine! Think of something fun you’ve always wanted to do with your loved ones and do it! Whether it be a backyard movie night or pitching a tent and sleeping under the stars, DO IT! 

    Time is fleeting. This season of additional quality time at home will end. Your teenagers will soon roll their eyes again about having to stay home. So take advantage of this gift while you can! 

     

     

    New normal vs. Old Normal
    With the “stay-at-home” order coming to an end, many people are wondering how life will look on the other side. There are a few important things to remember. 

    Continue to keep your distance.

    Just because business will soon be opening again, this doesn’t mean you should go on long shopping sprees. If you need to grab something at a store, do just that. Grab it, and be on your way. If you see a friend, stick with the “elbow-bump” or better yet, a wave and a quick hello!

    The Coronavirus is not gone. The pandemic is not over. #COVID-19 is still affecting our community. We can see the light at the end of the tunnel, but remember there is still a real threat of exposure. If you and your family are healthy, you are in a good place. But there are many people in our community who are elderly or have pre-existing conditions that are vulnerable. So for them, keep your distance!

     

     

    Tuscaloosa, we are proud of you! We are stronger than the Coronavirus. We have proven ourselves to be kind, generous, supportive and loving even in the midst of Covid-19

    Alice Maxwell

    To know Alice Maxwell, Top Agent in Tuscaloosa AL, is quite frankly to love her. Vibrant and charming, she’s one of the region’s most successful REALTORS®. When asked about her sales, she sheepishly says, “Honestly, I’m not sure. I just take care of people. That’s what I love doing.” – Top Agent Magazine A Tuscaloosa Native, it’s this passion for people and knowledge of her hometown that has made Alice Maxwell a top REALTOR® in the Tuscaloosa area since 1993. She is quick to say, “I eat, sleep and breathe real estate. I love taking care of people!” It’s no surprise that clients quickly become lifelong friends, making her business one that is built on personal relationships, personal referrals and corporate relocations. By employing the latest technologies and marketing strategies, Alice does everything possible to ensure her clients’ properties are positioned and marketed for success. She and her team are committed to aggressively marketing their client’s listings, as well as finding the perfect home or condo for their buyers. To further assist her buyer’s need, she has a trusted network of professionals from inspectors, contractors, handymen to loan officers. Devoted to giving back to her community, Alice can often be found hammering at a new Habitat for Humanity house or feeding a group of students from Collegiate Recovery Community. She has served on the United Way Board, the Chamber of Commerce Board, and the Board of Directors for Capstone Bank, and as an Elder at First Presbyterian Church. She also serves her alma mater, The University of Alabama, as a member of the President’s Cabinet, Women of the Capstone, and Human Environmental Sciences Leadership Board. After earning her REALTOR® license, Alice earned her CRS, ABR and GRI designations. Since becoming a principal in Keller Williams Realty Tuscaloosa, she has participated in extensive training--recently completing Keller Williams’ signature training program, BOLD. Her knowledge of the industry paired with her knowledge of the Tuscaloosa market allows her to offer the highest level of service to each client. Because of her training and hard work, she has been named REALTOR® of the Year, and won the Arthur B. Pope award from the Tuscaloosa Association of Realtors. Alice is married to her high school sweetheart, John, and together they are parents of Anne, Davis and Stuart. In the spirit of the Maxwell tradition, all three children have pursued individual careers in different spheres of real estate. When not busy with real estate, Alice and Johnny are often found spending quality time with their five grandchildren, their dogs, close friends or Alice’s 89-year-old mother, Dee. It’s a full and busy life! Alice probably sums it up best saying, “If you had told me years ago that I would be where I am today, I wouldn’t have believed it. I just know that I work hard and I believe that people don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.”
