Here’s why people love working with Leslie:
” #myrealtorisbetterthanyours I’m always telling people how u walked me through the process (and made it fun!) even months before I was ready to buy (especially since a portion of my money was made bartending and we all know that’s cash). I know a lot of service industry are afraid to take the leap because of being in a majority cash business but you held my hand through it and when u did find my place u told me to drop everything I was doing and get my ass over here at 5:30/6pm. I saw my place in the dark but if I had not it would’ve been sold before I saw it! Thank you Leslie Heindel!” – Constance D.
“Working with Leslie was a great experience. She’s a go-getter, a great listener, and lots of fun to see houses with! She also knows her stuff and will keep you up to speed with the entire process. We highly recommend her!” – Daniele G.
“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!” – Michael C.
“Leslie is an incredible realtor and helped us navigate a unique and challenging home buying experience. She has wide breadth of knowledge in her field and is always there for you. She will have your back 100% and your best interest in her heart. Choosing Leslie as your realtor will be one of the best decisions you ever make.” – Matt B.
“When I needed to find a tenant quickly for a vacant rental property, and was having no luck finding one on my own, a coworker recommended Leslie Heindel to me. She immediately took over all responsibilities of getting the unit rented including running ads, showing the place, performing credit & background checks, getting the lease signed, and securing deposits. I’m happy with the tenant I ended up with, and she did it in record time. After we worked together, she put me on a mailing list to update me every three months on real-estate sales in my neighborhood so that I can continue to be Informed about nearby property values. I will be renting another property in the next few months and absolutely plan to involve Leslie from the get-go.” – Eileen L.
“Leslie is a true professional when it comes to real estate. She’s extremely knowledgable, motivated, patient, honest and fun, and goes above and beyond for her clients. Leslie helped me navigate the quirky market that is New Orleans, and took all the first-time-buyer guesswork out of the equation. With her help, I was able to get under contract within 72 hours during Mardi Gras weekend, and close on my property in just over a month. Leslie held my hand throughout the process, and stayed two steps ahead of me the entire time so nothing was missed. Explaining the buying process, fighting to get me the best deal, keeping me organized and recommending competant / competitively-priced companies to work with – Leslie did it all, and usually before I asked! When we ran into some seller / seller’s agent issues on closing day, Leslie jumped in and solved them without skipping a beat. She’ll be the first person I call when I’m ready to upgrade in the future, and the first person you should call if you’re thinking about selling or buying today! I truly can’t say enough good things or thank her enough!” – Jessica H.
“If I could help you in any way- choose Leslie. Stuck between two realtors, just scared of realtors completely, whatever your situation is- choose Leslie. Their are plenty of agents out there, you have a wide selection to choose from- but I can literally promise- a complete stranger from ANY walk of life- you will NOT regret your choice in her. Never once did I have to ask her to do anything, she was always a step ahead of me. This agent is extremely organized, focused, hardworking, honest and truly a clients biggest supporter. You can tell in your first day working with her, this agent knows and is on top of her stuff. When your mind is focused on the next step- she’s got the next 3 steps planned and in action. Which I cant tell you enough- was extremely helpful and relieving. As a buyer, it was invaluable to have someone who knew what I wanted, knew what I wanted to spend, got a quick feel for my personality and shifted her approach with me around that. From start to finish- we never missed a deadline- never got pushed back- her and her team are extremely diligent on looking for roadblocks before they have a chance to happen. She is extremely timely, great respect of clients time wether it’s always being early to showings and having the house set up for you, or being efficient with what’s needed to be communicated. I work a crazy schedule- I wasn’t available to be around for my inspections- she was there, with no hesitation. Worked around my schedule for showings, made time for me to discuss things when she knew I would be available, answered every call/text/email promptly, made me laugh when things were terrible, and quickly got moving when things were great! After speaking with and watching colleagues with other agents- I will say Leslie’s work ethic is unquestionable. All around best Home buying experience working with Leslie. If you care anything about service- choose Leslie.” – Hillary B.
“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.
“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!” – Dan P.
“Leslie was a life saver! As a first time homebuyer I was particularly nervous, but she walked me through the entire process and made it FUN. Additionally, she is highly responsive, incredibly detail oriented and very proactive. I would highly highly recommend Leslie.” – Sarah M.
“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.” – Ashlee M.
“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!” – Chris C.
