Be New Orleans is a New Orleans neighborhood guide that provides you with the opportunity to get a real feel for each area. Many people looking for their New Orleans home want to know what the neighborhood has to offer – like grocery stores, restaurants, shops, and everyday essentials. Once realizing no other site was offering this pertinent information, top New Orleans real estate agent Leslie Heindel, decided it was it up to her to make this happen.


If you’re looking to buy or sell your next New Orleans home – no need to look any further.


As a New Orleans Realtor® (and 5th generation local), Leslie, knows this city well & is familiar with its changes over the years. She loves that each NOLA neighborhood truly has it’s own distinct personality and life flowing through it.  She also recognizes that choosing a neighborhood is as important as selecting the right home. 

In November of 2018, Be New Orleans grew its tribe. Now teamed up with fellow Realtor® Heather Shields, she can give a unique perspective as someone who has fully renovated an old New Orleans home in a historic district. Hailing from Virginia, Heather took to New Orleans like a kid to Monkey Hill.
