My home selling experience

My experience was fantastic. Ms. Carla was great, she priced my house perfectly and sold it within the time frame I needed. I would recommend her any day, any time, to anyone needing assistance with buying or selling a home. Can't say enough about the person she is and how she was willing to make a difficult sale between two divorced people who were not on good terms. Love this woman. She is absolutely the best and I'm glad to call her a friend.

Hesitant first time home buyer

I was a hesitant first-time home buyer. I hated the idea of working with a realtor, but a friend recommended Leslie and the experience could not have gone better. First of all, Leslie has a stellar sense of humor and great communication skills--she is completely transparent with the process and offers multiple plans in moving forward with a purchase. She did all of the work, pretty much. She narrowed down a list of possible houses that fit my interests and we found the perfect home in just a few weeks. I wouldn't have been able to do this without Leslie's help. She has inside connections to a team of greatly competent personnel that helped moved the process along, too: loan officers, home inspectors, reliable and honest contractors, actual pest control experts, etc. You get Leslie's help and you're covered with every person that you could possibly need in home buying. She even got me a great deal on home and flood insurance. 🙂 This is all to say that Leslie is in complete control of the home buying experience. The buyer just needs to know what he or she wants and Leslie can even help with that, too. Honestly, I cannot give her enough praise. Thank you, Leslie!

Carla Lawson

This is our 7th home we have bought. Carla was clearly the best realtor that we had. She listened to us and was very patient. She helped find and get us into a home that my family truly loves. She set everything up for us. The easiest buying experience that I have had. Thanks Carla!

Thank you, Carl! She's one of our favorites.

Leslie Heindel

Leslie was extremely knowledgeable about the various areas in this unique city and was adept at matching our particular needs to the right areas. Her responsiveness was instantaneous and she provided super recommendations in securing inspectors and estimators in order to meet contract deadlines! She went above the call of duty and even helped us out during our move after closing! Leslie is honest, professional, sharp and works in her clients’ best interest. I would highly recommend her to anyone!!!

Leslie will bend over backwards

Leslie is someone that will bend over backwards (and even drive to the Northshore of New Orleans) to make your vision a reality. I admire the hustle and care she put toward getting my family and I exactly what we always wanted. She helped us obtain a dream life, not just a dream home.She answered every text, call, email promptly and kept everything as real as it gets. As someone who cannot stand to be not in control of every detail, I was surprisingly relaxed and relatively stress-free throughout the entire process - the timeline of which was completely sped up. We started the process in late January 2018 with an email that said "Hey, I know we can't possibly get this house because we aren't ready yet, but this is the exact house I would want..." and her reply was something along the lines of "Are you sure you can't get it?" We closed March 1st.It's not easy to manage the (sometimes unrealistic) expectations of clients, but Leslie sure makes it seem that way. It's almost a shame we found the last home we'll ever live in, because it would be a pleasure to work with Ms. Heindel again.Mallory C.

Thank you, Mallory! Leslie had a great time working with you too!!

Bad to the bone

Her and the wife just bumped into each other. We weren't selling our house at that time. A few months later it just happened we decided to sell. We called steph and told her we wanted to give her the first try to sell our house. Next thing you know we have an open house with catering and felt like this house, that we own, was the best one to own in river ridge. STeph has an college degree in marketing and she knows how to use it. She is awesome and talks great with people. But we had the person selling this house that we wanted so badly. We wanted the house but we didn't want to deal with the realtor selling the house. That when we put the katson on them. Steph was a dream, she did everything but the open house on the house we wanted to buy. She made it to where as long as we wanted this house, we were getting this house. If there was a road block, steph would as first if we wanted to go over this road block. And sure enough we were on to the next one. Steph is the way to go! Don't think about it, be about it. I vote for steph and so should you!!

Can't recommend Leslie highly enough

I can't recommend Leslie highly enough. She made the whole process as clear and easy as it could be, and helped us find and buy a house we LOVE. She also didn't stop after we bought the house - she's continued helping us and keeping us informed even after. She's the best!!!

First time home buyer

We went into our first time buying a home with very little knowledge of the actual process. I usually do a ton of research even before committing to a $10 purchase on Amazon so I was expecting a head full of grey hair by the time we closed.Leslie made every part of the home-buying process as stress-free as it could be. She was very responsive in answering our many questions answer and made us feel like there was no such thing as a stupid question (even though we had plenty of those). When inspection brought up items that were concerns, Leslie made sure those were quickly corrected before we closed.In the end we are moved in to our first home and I still have all of my hair thanks to Leslie making what could have been a very stressful process run as smoothly as possible. We do not plan on going through the home-buying process again any time soon but when we ever do we will not hesitate to contact Leslie as our agent. Thanks Leslie!

Leslie Heindel

Our most recent buying experience was a unique one with quite a few twists, turns and unexpected decisions to make along the way. I cannot imagine going on this wild ride with any realtor other than Leslie. She is responsive, knowledgeable, straightforward and a consummate professional. Without hesitation, I will recommend her to anyone I know looking to buy or sell a home. She'll make you feel like you're her top priority and stand true to her word every step of the way.

Third times a charm!

Third times a charm! Stephanie was the third realtor I've used in New Orleans and she will definitely be the last. Working with her was completely unlike my past experiences. She was professional, caring, hardworking and willing to go the extra mile to make sure my home sold in the manner I needed. I can't say enough about her positive attitude, work ethic and desire to help her clients. If I ever buy or sell another house in New Orleans it will surely be through her. Thank you for helping me sell my house Stephanie!

Thanks for allowing Stephanie to be of service - she's one of our favorites!
