Bremen, AL- Real estate is on the rise again this year, and many people are taking the plunge into buying a new home. For one couple, the zest of buying a new home just wasn’t enough. Jim and Alex Cox have been running a quiet Bed and Breakfast on the shores of Lewis Smith Lake for more than 12 years, and have now announced their jump into real estate. The couple have been assisting their valued guests with investigating and purchasing property in in the lake area for years, and claim that the entry into the real estate business was a natural fit.
Watermark Properties, the newly formed real estate company in Bremen, AL, brings a lot to the table for those looking for a lakefront property of their own. Jim Cox, retired from the US Army Corps of Engineers, is a registered Professional Engineer with more than 40 years of construction experience. He aims to put these skills to good use in helping buyers find a sound lakefront property that best suits them. And although the couple lived and worked in Germany, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Korea and Japan before settling in Alabama, the two grew up fishing and skiing the nearby lakes in both Mississippi and Alabama, so homebuyers can rest easy knowing that their realtors know the area extensively.
Centered around properties on the shores of Smith Lake, the couple claims access to numerous Multiple Listing Services, which cover the entirety of the lake. They are also known for frequently checking for new listings on the market, in order to make the list of viewable properties for buyers that much heartier. Clients are even given the choice to view their potential new property from the lake, as well as on land. It’s this commitment to detail and finding each client the perfect new lakefront property that sets Watermark Properties apart.
“So many of the people who stayed at our Bed and Breakfast fell in love with the area that we just sort of became part time realtors without knowing it,” shrugs Alex Cox, half of Watermark Properties’ founding duo. “One day we sort of looked at each other and said, ‘well why not’. We enjoyed making our patrons happy for more than 12 years, and we loved the area we were in, but we felt like there was something more that we could add to the mix. Helping people find a beautiful home in this gorgeous, friendly area is more rewarding even than we imagined. There’s just something about putting all of our skills together to help someone become truly happy with where they live, and that’s why we do what we do.”
One of the cleanest lakes in the nation, Smith Lake in Bremen has over 500 miles of shoreline, and deep, crystalline waters. The site is yet uncrowded and enjoys vistas of rocky shorelines and surrounding forests, in addition to the clear water of the lake. Conveniently located an hour north of Birmingham and an hour south of Huntsville, Smith Lake makes for a desirable place to live or vacation. Watermark Properties provides a growing list of lakefront properties and nearby properties in order to help their clients into the home, villa, or condominium that best suits their needs and lifestyle. Thanks to their experience abroad, in construction and engineering, and running their own Bed and Breakfast right on the lake, Jim and Alex Cox not only bring knowledge and sense to the table, but a downhome charm and friendliness that is unmatched by other local real estate companies.
