The service we received from Keaty was wonderful & made moving from Tennessee to Louisiana so much easier!
The listing process was quick and everyone worked with our schedule.
Leslie Guillory is our realtor and she is the best! Like really, she is so calm and patient and smart. Buying a home can be a really scary experience and I have realized how important it is to have a smart realtor who you trust to be on your side. She really made the whole process very pleasant and non-stressful. I highly recommend her if you are looking for a realtor!
Nicole provided help with contracts on what to do & what not to do, it was a great overall experience.
I did not know anything about the process and was guided and informed by Lori. She made the process easy.
I will remember most how hard Lindsey Reed fought for me. I felt like she wanted me to find a home as badly as I did.
Lindsey was great! She was with us at every part of our buying journey.
Carrie was outstanding, feel like she is a family member, positive energy, and returns all calls quickly.
Lulu was so sweet and on the ball, she has style and grace when dealing with other realtors.
