About Us

Pounders & Associates, Inc. is a full-service commercial real estate brokerage company.

Since 1997, Pounders & Associates, Inc. has been the top full-service commercial real estate firm in Northwest Alabama. Our focus – and the foundation of our success – is exceeding client expectations by accomplishing their real estate objectives in an efficient and professional manner. We sell, lease, manage, and develop all types of commercial real estate and have experience in retail, office, industrial, and multifamily properties. Our team advises a diverse client base that includes property owners, tenants, investors, and organizations and we have established a successful track record of working with local, regional, and national clients of varying sizes and degrees of real estate experience.

Our Legacy

Our company’s philosophy is one of integrity, dependability, and hard work, emulating what our founder, Gregg Pounders, began over 20 years ago. As an independent commercial real estate firm, we are able to be responsive and approachable, but our market presence provides the opportunity to regularly complete transactions with larger, national brokerage companies.

Gregg Pounders is a Muscle Shoals native who returned to the Shoals area after graduating from the University of Tennessee to begin his career in commercial real estate. Pounders partnered with Ronald & Shelby Warren to form Warren-Pounders & Associates, Inc. After a thirteen-year partnership with the Warrens, Pounders set out to establish his own company exclusively focused on commercial real estate. Pounders & Associates, Inc. has since become the recognized authority on commercial and investment real estate in the Shoals and, to this day, remains the only brokerage firm in Northwest Alabama 100% focused on commercial real estate.

In 2011, Justin Bishop joined Pounders & Associates as an Associate Broker, solidifying a series of business relationships that began almost two decades earlier when Gregg Pounders provided site selection services for Wesfam Restaurants, a fast food franchise owned and operated by members of Justin’s extended family.

Interestingly, the first real estate closing Justin ever attended was with his grandfather and aunt, who were purchasing land for a new Burger King restaurant in Athens, Alabama. Later, while pursuing an undergraduate degree at the University of North Alabama, Justin provided marketing and internet consulting services for Pounders & Associates before beginning his own real estate career.

After working alongside Gregg Pounders for seven years, Justin Bishop attained a career milestone in June 2018, acquiring ownership and becoming President of Pounders & Associates.
