There are very few who I would recommend higher than the Carnes-Hyatt Group. It is rare in the modern world to find a company that believes in customer service, dedication to the task at hand, and a forward thinking business plan using both the most modern technology and the best of the tried and true traditional methods. The Carnes-Hyatt Group is one of those entities. If you are in the market to buy or sell a home, and you want to get it right the first time, this is the first call you need to make. More importantly, if you have been trying to sell your home and it hasn't happened, call Jason or Jonathan and LISTEN to what they say.” - Ralph Harbison

In 2011, my family had just had a new baby and were trying to sell and buy house in the month of December. Chaotic describes my life at this time. Jason was always available when I had a question and Jonathan was unavailable. There were several times when I would second guess or have questions and Jason was always available to calm my nerves.

Jason stayed in contact with us throughout the process. At time when houses were staying on the market for months to years our house sold in just 6 weeks. That actually put us in a crunch to get a new house! Luckily Jason helped with that too. Even a while after the process was complete he still answered questions and gave us advice as needed. Jason was recommended to us and we continue to recommend him to our friends and family." - Andy & Stephanie Spinks

"After my house was on the market for a year we made the decision to change agents. We met with Jason and after thorough research he listed our housed. Within a month we had a contract on the house. We had several issues with the buyers financing and Jason did a great job of guiding the other agent and mortgage company through the steps to get us to a closing. Jason spent countless hours insuring we not only sold our home, but also did all it took to insure we found a new home. I have and will continue to give Jason my highest recommendation. If you are in the market to sell your home, there is no one better than The Carnes-Hyatt Group. They know the business inside and out." - John Sims

"Thanks to Jonathan Hyatt & Jason Carnes, the selling of our home was a good experience. They came highly recommended to us by a Realtor friend that works exclusively for a builder. In an over saturated in our area, they generated interest in our house using their innovative skills, and we received a sales contract within 5 days of signing our contract with them. They were aggressive in getting things rolling and kept us informed with each step. We are so pleased with how fast our house was sold. If you want a competent, honest Realtor, and are eager to sell your home, The Carnes-Hyatt Group are the Realtors to call." - Norman & Peggy Lee

"Considering the condition of Birmingham’s real estate market, I thought I would never get my home sold. After using an agent I found in a magazine for six months, I decided to call Jason & Jonathan. I’ll keep this short and sweet: They sold my home in only 35 days and only $800 off of full asking price. These two will be selling my next home and every one thereafter. Do yourself a favor now and call them!" - Danny Wheeler

"My wife and I had been trying to sell a house for over six months without any success. We contacted Jonathan and Jason and they moved quickly to gather the vital information on the house. They told us that it should sell quickly. Due to our experience with another real estate agency, we were reluctant to believe them. We were WRONG. We had a buyer in less than a month. My wife and I were very pleased with the professionalism and kindness which was extended to us. We highly recommend Jason Carnes and Jonathan Hyatt to others." - Raymond & Irene Hembree

"As investors dealing with numerous real estate agents, we felt Jason & Jonathan were the most professional and experienced team we have ever dealt with. We highly recommend them." - Jerry & Jean Holmes

"It was a pleasure working with you and Jason. I have used several real estate agents in the past and found that you guys are very creative with your marketing skills. This is what impressed me and David the most - creative, innovative marketing skills. Also, you guys were very responsive which is hard to find in the real estate industry as well. Thanks again for doing such a fine job of selling our home." - Tracy Nelms

"Having been for sale about 6 to 8 months, my Homewood house needed a new Realtor. Jonathan and Jason contacted me. I was impressed with their professionalism and their work ethic showed trust. Trust was important as I was planning to move 700 miles away and would not be around to look after the house. After I moved, they "kept an eye" on my property. Jonathan went the extra mile handling getting the fall maintenance/inspection for my heating system taken care of. Before long, they had a buyer with a fair offer. That price let me move on to my next purchase. The sale was handled smoothly with "fax" and "mail" due to the distance. Jonathan's and Jason's work, at a time when the real estate market has been bad, make them THE BEST REALTORS with me." - Judy Carmichael

"Jason Carnes & Jonathan Hyatt were wonderful to me during my home buying experience. I was nervous because I was buying my first home and was doing it alone. They were extremely helpful and knowledgeable during every aspect of the process. They made sure I saw every house I wanted to see quickly and always kept in mind what was on my "wish list." Ultimately, we found the right house for me. I would highly recommend them to anyone interested in buying or selling a home. They will work tirelessly to make your move as smooth and painless as possible. Jonathan and Jason are both true professionals, but offer the added bonus of being comfortable to work with because both have a good sense of humor and are genuinely good people. They make a great team and complement each other well." - Jenny Gardner

"Choosing Jonathan and Jason as our Realtors was the best decision we have ever made. We couldn't have had a better home buying experience. We love our new home and thanks to them we got in it quickly and without any guess work. Thanks guys for doing more than your part and making this so easy for us. If we ever buy and sell again we're calling you guys!" - Jon & Amanda Houser

"Now I wanted to sell my house so we could build "our" house. Mine had been on the market with another Realtor for many months, and I was discouraged about selling. After turning it over to Jason and Jonathan, within a month I had a contract at a very good price. We were delighted with the professional way they approached the marketing, the negotiating, the closing, all the people involved, and the many details in between. We recommend them to anyone who needs a young, enthusiastic, yet experienced team to work with during this very important transitional time." - Elizabeth Simmons

"In 2006 I had a home to sell in Jefferson County. It was a small, ranch style home, roughly 1400-1500 square feet, built in the early sixties. I had a figure in mind as a selling price and hoped to sell within three to four months. Jason Carnes managed to sell the home for $12,000 more and did so in just over one month. I was very appreciative of his professionalism and the manner in which every detail of the sale was handled. I was so satisfied with his performance that when my new bride wanted to sell her home I suggested she list with Jason. She did, and I'll let her present the "other side of the story." See above from Elizabeth - Ray Simmons

"We interviewed several agents before contacting The Carnes-Hyatt Group but no one really clicked with us. Jonathan and Jason sat us down and explained the whole home-selling process to us clearly and they were very friendly and comfortable to talk to. Our home sold much quicker than we expected and they were so knowledgeable throughout the whole process. We won't ever use anyone else to buy or sell!" - David & Janet Woodard

"We had our home listed with another agent for 6 months and nothing happened. I noticed that a home listed with Jonathan & Jason sold in a few weeks. I was impressed. They sold our home quickly too. They were very professional and honest. Thanks again Jason & Jonathan." - Deborah Early

"We were very pleased with the whole experience and sale of our home. The Carnes-Hyatt Group had great suggestions for preparing (staging) our home to make it show well, and had new and up to date ideas for marketing to reach as many buyers as possible. Jason and Jonathan were very helpful and were completely available to us for any questions we had. We sold in a very short time and for FULL ASKING PRICE! What more could we ask for?" - Michael & Beth Fritts

"We had our home on the market with three different agents for a period of two years before we called Jason Carnes & Jonathan Hyatt. After such a long time on the market, we were about ready to give up. When Jason and Jonathan explained their approach to home-selling and stepped us through their detailed marketing program for our home, we knew that it would sell this time around. And it did! Jonathan and Jason put the right tools to use and they got our home sold. Their approach resulted in more showings and multiple offers and our transaction was a smooth one. I would recommend their team to any homeowner that is thinking about selling a home. The right agent really can make a difference." - Ray & Glenda Acton

"When I first decided to sell my home I called several agents to shop rates. I chose Jason and Jonathan first because of their rate and then they turned out to be the best real estate agents I had ever worked with. I have sold five homes with five different agents and my last sale was by far my best. They did all the work for me and kept me informed all the way through closing. I will be calling them again to sell my next home." - Pamela McCabe

"The Carnes-Hyatt Group did an excellent job marketing my house in a very over-saturated market. My house was shown three times on the first day it was on the market, and within one week we had a contract. Their experience made the listing, negotiation, and closing processes go very smoothly. I would not hesitate to use them again on my next home." - Nick & Volree Wade

"Our selling experience was going badly until we called Jason Carnes and Jonathan Hyatt. Our home had been on the market for 8 months with another agent and we were seeing very little activity. After meeting with their team we felt confident that things would change and boy did they! Within the first three weeks we had more showings than we had seen over the past 8 months and by the fifth week we had a very good offer! Thanks to Jason and Jonathan our home sold quickly and for the price we wanted. I was truly amazed at the way they marketed my home. I had not seen many of their marketing methods used by any other agent. It made a big difference. Thanks guys!" - David & Stephanie Williams

"My wife and I had our home for sale for over 6 months. We were getting frustrated due to the lack of activity when I remembered having spoken to Jason Carnes before we even started looking for a new home, and we had the need to sell our old one. We met with Jason, and my wife and I listened to what he had to say. We realized how serious and dedicated to their work the “Carnes-Hyatt Group” was. We signed up with them, and immediately started getting activity. In one month our home was sold, and sold for a price better than we thought it would, which is outstanding in a depressed market. I then recommended their team to a co-worker who was selling her home, which had been on the market for at least six months with little activity. She had a contract on her home within 6 days. Folks, these guys don’t play at real estate. They know what they’re doing. They are not part time. Trust me, they are true professionals and will take good care of you. You will be glad you called them!" - Gary & Pam McClaran

"We used Jason Carnes as our agent to sell our home. Jason was terrific. His knowledge and expertise made us feel like we were in good hands. Jason was very professional and kept us informed on everything. We were very impressed when we got to the closing table. Jason had all the paperwork ready and our closing went smoothly. We also used Jason to buy our new home. Again he handled everything. Jason knows the area and guided us in making the right decisions. We highly recommend Jason Carnes and his team." - Robert & Nancy Nunnally
