“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.”

"Kim is super personable and embodies the Southern grace, charm, and hospitality! I love the fact that she's undeniably personable and takes the time to listen even if it seems like babble. She's completely understanding of how overwhelming real estate purchasing can be and has the patience of a saint to walk you through the arduous but satisfying task of home ownership.
What's really great is that she will make suggestions to help you think outside of the checklist or box and you would be better off to try straying from the worn out beaten path!
Dependable, professional, and personable!"
