About Justin

I am a FULL TIME ASSOCIATE BROKER affiliated with Lake Homes Realty, selling homes, condos, and property in all three counties of Smith Lake. I have lived on Smith Lake for more than 15 years and have been coming to Smith Lake since 1986. I have intricate knowledge of the entire lake and have expert knowledge about every cove and channel on any part of the lake… either by road or water!

Top-Producing Smith Lake Realtor

I was the top producing agent in Year 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017 for our local Board of Realtors.

For 2017, my sales were in excess of $90,000,000. 2018 is pointing toward another record breaking year! I remain a leader in listing and sales volume for the South East US, the state of Alabama, and the entire Smith Lake area. I work hard, do what I say, and keep in close contact with all of my customers. I stay on top of the ever changing Alabama real estate market from day to day by monitoring the various MLS systems that cover our area and use the latest technologies to get information to my customers quickly.

On average, I manage 300-400 Smith Lake properties, so I definitely have something in my inventory for everyone. If I do not have it, I will find it! In 2017, I closed 160 properties with prices ranging from $10,000 to $1,900,000. This is why everyone calls me “Mr. Smith Lake”!

Real Estate with Integrity

Honesty and integrity are also very important to me in this business. A major part of my Smith Lake business is referrals and repeat customers. I work hard to keep the customers I have and I look forward to gaining new prospects every day.

Any type of real estate transaction is a major investment and must be treated with respect. I give people the attention they deserve when making such a large investment in not only money, but time.

When you call or email me, you can be guaranteed your call or email will be returned at the very instant I get the message. I check email and phone messages all throughout each day and I strive to respond as quickly as possible!

A Smith Lake Realtor That Gets Results

As the top producing agent on Smith Lake, I have a proven work ethic that gets results. If I don’t know the answer to a question, I have the resources to find out! I am a dedicated person who will work hard for you whether I am selling your property or helping you buy a brand new home. You make your own decisions when the time is right. I don’t pressure my clients in any way.

Buy Your Dream Home

Real estate has always been of interest to me. I have always enjoyed watching different types of homes, condos and property sell over the years. Finding someone their dream home or a great investment property is a satisfying feeling that I look forward to. I also take pride in “after the sale” service. I have a lengthy list of satisfied and repeat customers who choose to do business with me over and over again.

What My Clients Are Saying…


Thanks for changing our lives!!!

God Bless!Deborah

We really appreciate the time you have spent with us over the last 3 yrs. You are a credit to the real estate profession.
Laura & Sam Cooper
When we went and looked at properties, you had done your homework and showed me several places that were exactly what I was looking for. With other realtors, I have looked at properties for days without seeing anything I liked. When we looked, I was ready to make an offer before lunch. The whole process seemed streamlined and worked as smoothly as possible.

I hope you’re doing well, and is it summer time yet??

Justin Dyar helped us find our dream home on Smith Lake! He was very knowledgeable about the area and worked hard to find us what we were looking for. He was friendly and very easy to work with. We will use him again in the future if we need to sell or buy. l We highly recommend him!
Nancy and Stephen Burge
When I first started looking for property on Smith Lake, I barely knew how to get there – much less find a piece of property at the right price. Justin’s name seemed to turn up every where I looked and when asking friends that knew the area. Although my budget wasn’t going to qualify me as a “big client” for Justin, he gave me the attention that I believe he would give to any one. We drove much of the area together and he was willing to meet me anywhere, just about any time. Even after throwing him a few curve balls and changing my mind about what I wanted and where, Justin remained patient and figured out a way to make it happen for me. I recently spent a few nights in the now-finished home that now sits on the property Justin helped me acquire. I couldn’t have gone through this process without his help. Moreover, the referrals he provided after the closing for local excavation, engineering, surveying were outstanding. Great job all the way around by Justin Dyar.

Probably the best agent I’ve had the privilege of working with! very laid back and as far from pushy as you will find! Justin has had to endure us over the last several years in our search for that unicorn lake house that we all want!!!! you know the 2000 sq ft completely updated main channel deep year round water with the brand new double slip boathouse with upper deck for under $300,000.00 oh yeah without having to drive by any run down properties on the way!!!! lol thank you Justin for your services and your friendship!! I hope 2013 is even better for you than 2012 I’m sure with your unmatched knowledge of SMITH LAKE real-estate you will continue to stay worthy of your title……MR. SMITH LAKE !!!!!!!!

Justin is a true professional, has an outstanding web presence and did a great job selling our lakehouse, even in the very slow market last year.
Frank & Darla Sargeant
We really enjoyed meeting you and working with you. It was always a pleasure to talk or correspond with you. You made the tedious process of buying a house and going through the loan process easier, plus you always returned our calls and emails. For that, I thank you. I have recommended you to everybody that’s asked about our experience. Toot when you go by!
Joan Burns
Beth and I feel so lucky to have met you. I can’t tell you how many times we have said “what if we had never met him.” Although we certainly aren’t one of the “big fish” in the pond, that has never seemed to influence your attentiveness and enthusiasm working with us.
Beth and her Husband
Justin, I have been so busy, I haven’t taken the time to thank you properly for doing such a great job selling the lake house. You were a dream to work with. After working with you, I see that selling a house doesn’t have to be a hugely stressful ordeal. You are SO professional, SO easy going, SO effective. Many thanks for everything you did
We can never thank you enough for all the hours you spent with us in our search for a home on the lake. You were so very patient with us. I know I was hard to please (had to have a bath tub and all) but you never gave up! We love our new lake home.
Just wanted to tell you thank you for all your help and patience. It was a pleasure to meet and work with you and hope you stop by and be sure to toot your horn when you pass on the way to your friends and family houses.

We are so excited about the house and plan to spend lots of time there. Cannot wait to garden on the terraces and just hang out on the lake.

I would rather say this in person, however, I am 7,500 miles away and looking forward to my flight home this Tuesday.

I wanted to thank you for all your efforts in assisting Jean and I with the house. You have been one of the most open and honest realtors that we have ever selected across multiple states. You have done everything to make sure that things went as best as they could with the complicity of the situations thrown at you. We really appreciate your professionalism and will always refer you to anyone that needs a realtor on Smith Lake.

I just wanted to take a minute to tell you how much we have appreciated working with you. We respect your knowledge of the lake; its quirks, restrictions and features. We feel fortunate to have you as our Buyer’s Agent. We had read an article telling us to never sign a buyer agent agreement for more than 30 days duration, but we actually feel protected having you represent us. We are grateful for your accessibility and your prompt follow up to our questions, as well as, your ability to point out the positives and negatives to each piece of property we viewed.
You made our purchase extremely pleasant, you aren’t pushy and you don’t act as if you know everything either. If you didn’t know something, you found out for us. You went the extra mile a few times for us and it didn’t go unnoticed. Everything ran smoothly through you and we would recommend you to anybody and will use you again.
Justin, you were professional and very helpful during all phases of the sale. Thanks Justin you were great!
If more people had the drive and determination of you, many problems of this world would be settled. I was amazed at the efficiency you portrayed from beginning to end.

Thinking back, I can’t think of any complaints or regrets I have. I’m glad I called you to help me sell my house. Your a cool guy! Thanks Justin!
