Dedra Hughes Realtor in Valdosta
Dedra Hughes

Associate Broker/CEO

In 1998 I was named rookie of the year and have been a top producer year after year after year but not because it was “about me”— I received that reward because since my first day it has always been “all about you” .

After being licensed I added the Georgia Realtor Institute (GRI) designation as well as my broker’s license to increase the knowledge I could bring to the table for marketing and negotiation for my clients. With over 90% of my business generated by past clients or referrals, it is important to me that every client experience excellent service.

I have a unique certification as a premier listing agent who is also certified in home staging.  Staging may help to get your home sold faster and with less hassle.  I remember several deals where very little staging added a significant number to the seller’s bottom line but it also provided a move in ready home for the buyer.

In 2016 after enjoying a record year helping folks, it became imperative to add a new member to my team to maintain the level of service I provide.  Since that time, my focus has turned strictly to helping sellers while Sarah Maxwell works hard for the buyers.  Several buyers, who have worked with Sarah, have experienced finding their perfect home before it hit the market. Listening to your needs and providing an educated fun experience is her goal!  Our team brings a new concept to the South Georgia market in that we believe to offer the highest level of service we must each represent only buyers or sellers enabling us to think constantly like the client we serve.

My newest passion has turned to helping the agents at Mercer Hughes Real Estate Group become more knowledgeable, successful, and generous thereby building a group of agents who are also focused on the needs of the  clients we serve.

Outside of real estate I enjoy giving back to the community I love.  I served on the board of the Children’s Advocacy Center, Bloom Women’s Conference, Valdosta Board of Realtors past president and the Stone Creek social chair.  I am presently beginning a term on the board of Girls On The Run.  I love my vegetable garden and CrossFit Valdosta, but not as much as I love my 3 children and 2 grandchildren!

I invite you to become a part of our group of satisfied clients and enjoy the process along the way!
