Not only is Kim Carnegie experienced and very knowledgeable in the New Orleans marketplace but what really sets Kim apart from other realtors is the fact that she TRULY CARES. It is abundantly clear that real estate is her passion and she cares for each and every one of her clients as if they are a part of her own family. She is uber-dedicated and is never too busy to talk or answer questions and always makes you feel like you are her #1 priority- period. For me, as a first time home buyer this type of treatment made all the difference in the world. I have recommended Kim’s services to numerous friends and family members and they are all delighted and thank me for the doing so. When the time comes for me to get back in the market and make future real estate investments, I will absolutely be using Kim Carnegie again as my agent.
I interviewed at least 3 agents to list my Irish Channel home before I met Karon Reese via a recommendation from a family member in the real estate business in another state. I pretty much knew, from the moment Karon walked through my door, she was it. She “gets it” – and as stressful as selling and buying a home can be….I could deal with her all day long! 10 offers in less than 4 days. And she successfully sold my house in the Channel for a MASSIVE record amount per square foot. Well above ask. By double digit percentages. Yes, my house was fabulous, and in a fabulous location….but Karon made it happen. Beyond my wildest dreams. With enough leftover for me and my dogs to give back to the neighborhood. I am forever grateful.
Smart, caring, knowledgeable, gracious, passionate, and professional. Those are just a few of the words that I would use to describe Karon and Allie Reese. Throughout the home buying process, we knew that Karon and Allie had our best interests in mind and we felt like we were their top priority. Karon and Allie have a masterful knowledge of the New Orleans real estate landscape, they provided excellent recommendations for vendors and contractors, and they regularly acted as a therapist as we went through the roller-coaster process of buying a home in the French Quarter. Without Karon and Allie, we would not be in our home today and we will always be grateful for all that they did to get us there.
Karon and Allie are my favorite realtors in any city! When I asked them to look at my small condo in New Orleans, I thought it might not be a big enough property for them to take on. But they listed the property and, throughout the whole process, treated it like it was their most important job of all. They took beautiful photos, put a lot of marketing into it and held several open houses. When I received multiple offers, they gave good advice on choosing a buyer with the best terms. But their help didn’t end there: When I needed to buy a new home in another city, Karon introduced me to another great realtor to help. I only wish I had another place to sell in New Orleans so I could work with Karon and Allie again! Highly recommended for buying / selling / advice. They are great realtors and even better people.
Karon and Allie helped my siblings and me sell our long time, historic family home in NOLA. It was anything but a straight-forward type of property in a desired area with spotty comps at best. She was a joy to collaborate with in best presenting the property to the market. Its nice to generate a lot of interest but its critical to identify the most qualified and best suited buyers which I feel we did! And on our side of the transaction were 4 decision makers – we get along great but it complicated things. Karon never allowed the house to be seen without herself or Allie present and that kind of first-touch interaction I feel was critical in this (and most any) real estate transaction. There’s always unforeseeable twists when buying or selling and Karon remained composed, professional and always presented the options clearly before stating her own recommendation, which were always smart and fair-minded. As a seller you can know that the property will be presented and photographed pro…
Barbara left no stone unturned searching for the dream house we described to her. She knew exactly what we wanted – and found it for us. We appreciated her prompt responses and ability to think outside the box. She really knows the nuances of the business and was a joy to work with!
We so enjoyed working with Allie Reese to find and purchase our new home! She represented a house we were interested in looking at and while we didn’t find our home that day, we immediately knew we had found our realtor! Being first time home buyers, Allie walked us through every step of the process from actual house hunting, extending an offer, inspection and closing. We felt confident in her recommendations and knew she had our best interest at heart. We both work full time and Allie was always willing to meet us on nights and weekends when it was convenient for us. She kept us organized with our meetings and scheduled house visits and promptly answered any questions we had for her and/or the seller of the home. Pleasant, personable, and always professional, I would gladly recommend Allie to anyone looking to buy a new home!
Karon and Allie are exceptional real estate agents. When we first met with them, we quickly saw that they loved our home as much as we did, and that passion and care remained evident throughout the course of our sale. They really took the time to understand the complexities of our situation and became true partners. Thanks to all their help and attention, we were able to stage and list our home at an aggressive price and got multiple offers within days. Karon and Allie are now trusted friends, and made the sale of our home a pleasure. I would wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone — they have terrific real estate instincts, great attention to detail, and are incredibly responsive and communicative.
Kim is the absolute best choice as a Realtor in New Orleans. She takes the time to really know you, and what you are looking for, so that you end up in the house that best suits you! She is with you every step of the way; helping you get the house of your dreams! I know, because I live in mine. I will never use anyone else. We feel so lucky to have her!!!
Barbara helped our family find a beautiful home in Lakeview after several months of evaluating different options, from buying to building in the area. We had many moving parts, but she was patient, responsive, and insightful every step of the way. When it came time to put an offer in on the house, Barbara helped us negotiate a contingent offer that was accepted by all parties and coordinate a seamless closing process. We are thrilled to be in our new home and can’t thank Barbara enough for making it happen!
We are very fortunate to be the ONLY New Orleans real estate firm that is a member of Luxe Places, an international realty group, with a global network, meaning that our listings receive national and international exposure. More info here.
