BHAM’s best

Cold Treats BIG SPOON CREAMERY 4000 3rd Ave South, Birmingham bigspooncreamery.com The ice cream shop’s primary goal is to create a menu focusing on seasonal flavors using local ingredients, as well as bringing a new, innovative approach to the classics. LUCKY CAT ROLLED CREAMS 2908 18th Street South, Birmingham luckycatrolledcreams.com Lucky Cat Rolled Creams is a fresh spin on a classic treat. Rolls of ice cream are packed into a cup and topped with a variety of yummy toppings. DOODLE’S HOMEMADE SORBETS & ICES 3238 Cahaba Heights Road, Cahaba Heights doodlesbham.com Doodle’s makes more than 150 flavors of homemade sorbets, Italian water ices and sugar-free ices. The shop keeps 60 to 70 flavors available at its Cahaba Heights location.

MOUNTAIN BROOK CREAMERY 2715 Cahaba Road, Mountain Brook (205) 870-0092

The shop has 300 flavors to choose from and 44 on hand on any given day. The ice cream cakes are also very popular. STEEL CITY POPS 2821 Central Avenue, Homewood steelcitypops.com They use only natural ingredients, no refined sugars or HFCS and local produce when possible – creating a healthy, delicious treat. There is everything from traditional flavors to the more exotic.

how’s the market? The market is currently healthy in all areas. Buyers and sellers are hustling to make a move, realizing that school is approaching shortly. Trussville, Hoover and Oak Mountain school systems are very popular and fastgrowing zones. New construction is still a popular option for homebuyers, even with the ability to pick out the finishes and even if the house is already completely built. Homes that need a little more work can still be sold within days if they are in a good location such as Crestwood, Avondale and Homewood. If you are thinking about listing your home, or you are a first-time homebuyer, let me use my strategic marketing plan and my expertise to assist you.

Check out what my happy customers have to say about their experience! Working with the Gusty Gulas Group was the best decision we made once we decided to sell our home. I was amazed at how organized and easy they made the selling process. We have 3 small children and the thought of selling a home was overwhelming; however, all of my doubts were eased as The Gusty Gulas Group made it so EASY!

John Michael has gone above and beyond in helping me look for a home. He is very knowledgeable with Birmingham and the surrounding areas. He’s made my experience wonderful and has been nothing short of amazing throughout the entire process. He’s prompt, professional and accommodating. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a new home.

Gusty Gulas was recommended to us by family, and by the end of our home building and buying experience, Gusty felt like family too! This past summer, my husband and I were planning our move home to Birmingham after living in Lafayette, Louisiana, for four years. After our first call with Gusty, we knew we had the perfect REALTOR® to make our transition seamless. We weren’t sure what area of Birmingham we wanted to call home, but Gusty laid out options for us, and we discussed pros and cons of each. We ended up deciding to build a new Signature Home in Hoover. Gusty knew from the look on my face when we entered the neighborhood we now call home that we had made our decision. I would definitely recommend Gusty to a friend, and I know I will call him next time we are ready to make a move.

excitingendorsements G3 is getting noticed! Our clients are not the only ones raving about the Gusty Gulas Group. Check out these endorsements from both local and national celebrities.

BARBARA CORCORAN

After making the 2016 Real Trends Top 250 Teams list, as published in the Wall Street Journal, Barbara Corcoran’s Team reached out to Gusty Gulas about a partnership. Barbara, a featured member of ABC’s Shark Tank, has endorsed Gusty and his #1 Team as the only agents in Birmingham that she recommends. Barbara built and grew the #1 Real Estate Brokerage in New York City, so she knows top talent when she sees it.

Reg & Will

If you have listened to Birmingham Radio for any amount of time you have probably heard Scott Register, also known as “Reg.” The G3 Team is excited to partner with The Morning Blend show with Reg and Will Lochamy on Birmingham Mountain Radio. Many of our clients are loyal listeners to BMR, and we love what Reg and Will do for the music scene in Birmingham.

Dollar BilL & Madison

If you love Country music, then you probably listen to 102.5 The Bull, and in the morning time you are entertained by Dollar Bill and Madison. Radio personalities and trusted Birmingham residents, Dollar Bill and Madison endorse Gusty and his #1 Team as the only agents in the Birmingham area that they would use when buying or selling a home.

Julianna R. I was grateful for the opportunity to work with Julianna to negotiate a sales price she was looking for and to ensure any major repairs of concern were taken care of prior to a smooth closing on her first home purchase. Congratulations Julianna!
