About LIST Birmingham
Brent Griffis and Melvin Upchurch Co-Founded LIST Birmingham in 2014. Both had been in the real estate business for years as agents, brokers and investors. It was their opinion that homeowners should have an option other than hiring a broker at a traditional commission or trying For Sale By Owner (FSBO). In their experience most homeowners who wanted to hire a listing agent understood the benefit of paying a competitive commission to the buyers broker but wanted to pay the listing broker less. Brent and Melvin may have been the only brokers in history to agree with this thought, so - LIST Birmingham was born. They wanted to be the 3rd option. A reasonable listing fee while still compensating the buyers broker.
It’s really that simple, so simple it can be confusing - but the truth is LIST Birmingham has great agents, with substantial experience who charge less commission than anyone else in the market. - Great Service, Save Money.
What Our Clients are Saying
Take it from our clients, who have saved time, money, and sanity.
“Brent is an excellent agent. He helped us buy our first house and then 13 years later he helped us sell it. Great deals both times. From painters to mortgage brokers, he leverages a network of the top local professionals. He works extremely hard. He is as honest as they come. His advice is reliable. All that, and yet he is the most affordable listing agent in town.”

“Our family recently bought and sold homes through LIST Birmingham with Melvin Upchurch. We could not have had a better guide or mentor through this challenging process. Melvin desires that his clients be informed, not pushed. He was as quick to point out the negatives as well as the positives in the properties we were shown. Melvin studies his client’s desires and needs, as well as studying the properties shown.”
