Lena and the Keaty are true professionals in the world of real estate.
Nicole provided help with contracts on what to do & what not to do, it was a great overall experience.
Mariana was always willing to help you to find the house of our dreams, she is so smart and a good person. She was always explaining to us every stop of the process.
Lindsey took the time to know us as individuals instead of just clients.
I will remember how this transaction brought two families so close and Alison never felt like an agent she was more like family.
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!
Lindsey was very professional, friendly, and quick to respond when I contacted her.
Lacey was down to earth and there was no pressure when I spoke to her about just looking.
Al and Lacey with Keaty helped us through every step of the process both purchasing our new home and selling our old. When things got stressful for us they remained positive and professional and helped to alleviate all of our concerns. Their expertise guided us to a closing that we couldn’t have been happier with! I cannot recommend them more!
We were referred by a friend to use Rachel Hebert with Keaty Real Estate. She was wonderful and made our first experience buying a home an enjoyable and stress free one! We could not have done this without her.
