Guitar Playing, Drumming, Realtor – Meet John Chism
Everyone – please give a warm welcome to the newest member of the Global Homes Group team – John Chism!
John joins the team with a ton of local knowledge and experience. You see, he grew up on Bone Camp Road and lived there his entire life until college. So if you’re considering Tuscaloosa as a home, or a home in Tuscaloosa – talk to John because this area is truly his home.
He had an amazing childhood, has a best friend brother, 2 amazing parents, and a ton of talents in things like playing the guitar and the drums. In fact he was on the drum line in high school. Plenty of real estate agents struggle with multiple projects, contracts, and elements to the business. That isn’t a problem for John seeing as how he can plan an instrument while moving with a band going on around him. Managing inspections, counter-offers, and closings is quite literally a walk in the park.

Speaking of – she’s been at a ballpark most of her life since her dad is the Thompson HS baseball coach. Imagine being the coach’s daughter at a 7A high school like Thompson! It was interesting to say the least.
But she’s g1 ...

The 3 most important words in Real Estate are:
But there is 1 word that matters with Your Real Estate Agent:
And that's exactly what you get with Nicole Free.
Nicole is a graduate of Hillcrest High School and has lived in the Taylorville / 69 South area of Tuscaloosa her entire life.
Not only is she a Hillcrest Patriot, but so is her daughter Colby who is a Crimsonette.
And her son who plays baseball for the Hillcrest Patriots.
Remember what we said about Local?
Find you a Realtor who not only knows the area or the business but find a Realtor who is part of the community, who is from the community - someone like Nicole Free. Someone from the area will simply know more and it will matter to them more.

Nicole Free just joined Global Homes Group in January 2022 after being an independent agent with Keller Williams, Tuscaloosa for about 2 years. (Full introductory post coming soon but this story where she helped a Tuscaloosa client has to be told right now)
This client came to Global Homes Group and Nicole after using a family member who is a real estate agent in Birmingham to list a home. Their thinking was - it didn’t matter where the listing realtor lived because this market is selling homes so fast.
Because of their thinking - and thinking to list with a Birmingham-based family member agent - their 3BR/2BA home sat empty and unsold for 90 days in a market where that type of home should sell quickly and for top dollar.
(they were losing money with it not selling)
