Jasper Main Street’s members, partnerships and contributors are found other places than just the downtown district. Not only do I lead Mike around downtown, but I lead him all over Jasper.
This week we visited with RE/MAX Elite, who specializes in residential and commercial property sales, located on one of the main arteries leading into downtown Jasper. I didn’t feel like walking from downtown so I had him drive me to their office at 504 Airport Road South, where we met with brokers/owners Brian Alexander and Danielle Goins; other brokers/owners are Carol Alexander and Russ Duggar.
I herded everyone into the conference room, where Danielle and Mike decided that I should try on some costumes. As you can tell by the picture, I was not amused. That aside, did you know that RE/MAX Elite was originally two realty companies? White Pepper, established in 2002 by Carol Alexander and Charlotte Pugh, and RE/MAX Elite, established in 2015 by Danielle Goins and Russ Duggar, merged in December 2016 to become a larger RE/MAX Elite and moved into White Pepper’s offices where we sit today.
As they were bribing me with treats to wear a cap, they told me that at Christmas time human children can drop off letters to Santa, and Santa actually replies to each human child. Now that I’m establishing myself as a columnist capable of producing hard-hitting expose’s, I’ll write that letter to Santa and drop it off at RE/MAX Elite and see if he is more generous than Mike.
These humans must be good at what they do since they were named the 2017 Broker/Owners of the year for the entire state of Alabama! Danielle, Brian and all the agents want to create a relationship so that they can find you the perfect home. And boy, are they committed to the community! Their goal is not only to sell homes for better living, but also to make a better community. You’ll often see them at each other’s human children’s ballgames, whether it’s fellow agents or clients. It’s a real family.
Danielle, the current President of the Walker Area Association of Realtors, is also the treasurer of Friends of Downtown Jasper 501(c)3, a funding arm for Jasper Main Street 501(c)6. She keeps Mike straight regarding individuals who contributed toward Jasper Main Street projects. That’s two females leading him around. Believe me, it takes many, many more. Brian stays busy too sitting on the boards of Synovus Bank, The Chamber of Commerce of Walker County, and Walker Area Association of Realtors.
And we can’t forget the fun-loving Druvan Group starring Josh Drummond and Nelson Vance! Poor Charlotte, they really have it out for her! Watch their videos on Facebook at Druvan Group of RE/MAX Elite, and you’ll get a laugh and a real feel for this family of agents. I’m sure they’ll be interviewing me soon. That’s me, of course, Dahling, in front of their backdrop.

PS – I took them a Jasper Main Street water bowl, and I hope to see it full of fresh water on my next visit.
