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.
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 a 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!!
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!!!
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!
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!
Carla Lawson was a great agent. Whenever I had a question, Carla had an answer right away, she was always on top of things. I would definitely refer her to a friend. Thanks again Carla for all your help, it was a pleasure having you as my agent 🙂
Leslie did such an amazing job through each step of the home buying process. Not only was she communicative and informative; she also was proactive and anticipated any questions that I might have or provided information that I might need. She was very knowledgeable about the neighborhoods, properties, market, and had great recommendations for any other contacts that you may need during the home-buying process. Leslie is friendly and is an agent that you can clearly trust. I always felt secure knowing that she had my best interests in mind during the entire process. She helped me find my first home and held my hand every step of the way. Being a first-time home buyer, I had a lot of questions and was not very familiar with the process and she definitely went out of her way to make me feel like I had enough knowledge to make informed decisions. I would recommend her to anyone and would also use her for any future real estate needs.
Leslie is amazing! She was easy to get in touch with and would update us immediately with any new information. I loved that she was able to recommend lenders, inspectors, etc that she has worked with in the past but NEVER pressured us to use one of them. 14/10, would use again.
Leslie helped me purchase a a home recently and i must say she made the experience as easy and smooth as possible. From the day she initially showed me the house until closing she was with me all the way 100% committed to making sure i got what i needed in a timely manner. i would recommend anyone to her. Anyone who needs an agent should give her a call.
I could not have asked for a better experience than the one I had working with Leslie. As a first time home buyer I was more than a little scared and unsure if buying a house was even something I was capable of. Leslie listened to my story, addressed all of my questions and pointed me in the right direction for even the smallest needs. She has the knowledge of New Orleans that only a native could have. Her intuition and integrity are of the highest order. She was completely my advocate at every turn. She paired me with a wonderful lending agent as well. I just bought my perfect home and it would not have happened without Leslie. She is an incredible woman to work with. 5 stars. 10 if it were an option.
I had an excellent experience working with Stephanie. She was very helpful and responsive. I would highly recommend her if you’re looking to buy or rent in NOLA.
Leslie- We can’t thank you enough for your expertise in selling our house. With 8 offers in 24 hours and a closing in 30 days you are the BOMB at what you do. Not to mention pretty hilarious!
Leslie, I will sing your praises to anyone who asks. I absolutely loved working with you. You had an answer for all of our questions, and if you didn’t, you found out in a reasonable amount of time. Thank you. We really appreciate everything you did. Sincerely, Melanie
I recently had the pleasure of working with Carla on selling my home. The entire process was perfect! My house was under contract in 3 days and she kept me updated through the whole process thereafter. She had my best interests in mind throughout the whole process. At the end of the day, we closed on time and I was extremely pleased!!! thank you Carla! I HIGHLY recommend Carla Lawson if you’re thinking about selling your house.
We recently had the pleasure of working with Leslie during the process of buying our first home. We were relocating from Florida to the West Bank under some time constraints and Leslie had great knowledge of the area and quickly learned exactly what we were looking for. She was exceptionally fun to work with and always responded quickly to any questions or requests that came up during the process. She was patient in helping us find the perfect home without any pushy sales attitude. From driving around to view properties to the closing it was clear that Leslie had our best interests in mind. I want to thank Leslie Heindel for guiding us through the process, and would highly recommend her to anyone that is searching for a new home!
Roel Miranda, What can I say? He had a laid back demeanor which suited me just fine but when it came down to crossing the i’s and dotting the t’s he was all business. His communication was excellent and he always answered or returned my calls promptly. He and his team navigated a tricky sale with professionalism and ease and Roel has a deep knowledge and love for New Orleans. I look forward to working with him in the future.
Carla was on top of everything, before I could ask she would answer my questions. She knew what I was looking for and I am happy with this home – she made it possible. I wouldn’t have looked at this house if it wasn’t for her. Thank you.
Lisa Julien defined professional and knowledgeable from our first meeting. Lisa was very understanding regarding my time limitations in my search for a home and safety concerns regarding where I lived. She provided me with listings for review, followed up timely, showed me multiple properties, and was very honest regarding properties that interested me. Her patience and professionalism were excellent. I really enjoyed working with Lisa and will be referring her to others in their search for the perfect home.
I had 30 days to find a new place and it only took Leslie one day to find a great place for me to move into. She took us to a few homes and read our reactions perfectly each time.She took her time at each house and was very honest about meeting our needs. We found a great house that was in our price range and I couldn’t be happier with the results. The whole process was quick and painless.
The unwelcome task of selling my mothers house fell in my lap and I did not have a clue what to do. My son recommended Carla Lawson. She took the time to walk through the house and point out what I needed to do to prepare the house for sale, which stopped me from making some mistakes like turning off the lights and water before an inspection. She helped me choose a reasonable asking price and I prayed the house would sale. The house sold before the advertising released and sold for $38,000 more than the neighbors predicted I would get for the house. Prayer and a good realtor works miracles.
The Leslie was awesome! She kept us up to date at all times and did everything she could to make things go as smoothly as possible me and my fiance are very satisfied with our house.
Thank You Carla for helping us get a home my daughter and her room mate can be proud of. We were looking for something affordable so they could get out of renting while in school. While I was in Shreveport, You were very patient with my daughter and my situation. We appreciate You very much. Not only did You help us with a home, you also help us with an agent for home owner insurance and a handyman if we needed one. Thanks again for ALL your help!
Had never thought about buying a house. Was satisfied with renting until Carla came along. She took me by the hand and helped me find a great house!! She was therefrom the beginning til the very end and I will recommend her every single time I can.
Carla got the job done for me. I told her at the last week of September that I wanted to find a house by the end of October and she was on board with me 100%. She kept my tastes in mind along the way and was finally able to deliver me a listing that fit my wish list and at the right price. She is great at returning text messages and emails on time and never left me hanging about information. I highly recommend her services as a Realator and she’s great at offering solid recommendations on just about anything you can dream up. She is well connected, tactful, timely, and will hustle for you like you’re her only client. What else could a homebuyer ask for?
