My husband and I live in Texas and were trying to sell our condo at LSU. Being in another state was only one of the many problems we were facing in trying to sell. My husband found Helene on-line, spoke with her and decided that she was the person that could help us and he was right. We had tenants living in the condo and that offered a logistical problem plus they had not taken care of the place in the two years that they were there. Since we were so far away, we really had no idea the state that the condo was in at the time we were prepared to sell. Helene went to our place with the tenants present. She also visited every other condo that was comparable to ours as well.
After doing her homework, she told us that our condo probably would not sell in the condition it was in; comparing it to similar condos on the market. She made suggestions as to what it would take to fix it up, to make it stand out from the others. We agreed to follow her suggestions, which of course, involved spending money, but we put our trust in her and did what she recommended. She also told us that we had a certain time frame to sell in and if we missed that mark then the chances of selling would diminish greatly. She met repair people, painters, locksmiths, etc. for us since we could not be there and got the place cleaned up. In the end, our condo did stand out and it stood above the rest. We were able to sell it within the time frame that we needed to.  She is very knowledgeable, well-informed about the area and know what buyers are looking for when buying condos for their children while attending school. She definitely went the extra mile for us and we sincerely appreciate her and the job she did for us.

“We have bought and sold many homes throughout the years, and have had the opportunity to work with some wonderful realtors. Helene Kurtz is our favorite. She represented us as a buyer’s agent as we searched for a townhouse in Baton Rouge. Helene listened to us every step of the way, she focused on understanding our needs and on meeting them. Throughout the entire process Helene was there providing support, guidance and candid feedback. She is extremely knowledgable about the area real estate market, and all facets of the buying process. Helene maintains frequent communication, she is accessible, and responsive in a kind, positive, professional manner. It was our pleasure to work with Helene.”

“I live in California and was trying to buy a home for my brother, a graduate student in LSU. I picked Helene as real estate agent as I was searching online for homes near LSU. Her website was very organized and to the point. Helene went above and beyond what a person would normally expect from a Realtor. She was on top of everything all the way through the purchasing process and extremely generous with her time to go through each step of process. She did PHENOMENAL with honesty, integrity, guidance, professionalism and kindness and made this real estate experience so smooth and peaceful. I am so grateful and appreciate her efforts. She is a true gem in her profession.”

“Just a short note to indicate how much we appreciate your very professional assistance during our recent search for a home in Baton Rouge. Your efforts went well beyond our expectations. Over the years Sharon and I have purchased over 15 homes. We have never experienced a realtor that displayed so much professionalism and sought to meet our needs at the level we enjoyed with you.”

“We would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home in Baton Rouge. Thank you again for your hard work and professional approach to a very difficult process.”

Hal and Sharon

“The process of selling my house was made much easier once Helene listed it. I originally tried to sell my house as a “for sale by owner” but in hindsight I could have saved money if I had listed it with Helene first because of the exposure she offered as well as her expertise in my neighborhood. Helene was a joy to work with. I especially appreciated her honesty and integrity. Instead of just telling me what a home seller may want to hear she was honest and candid about a marketing approach customized for my house. I believe that honesty came through in our relationship with the buyers and consequently I had 2 offers simultaneously. It was a good position to be in and I appreciate having Helene working with me through the process. I would highly recommend her as a listing agent to anyone who is thinking of listing their home.”

Tim

“Thank you for such a great experience finding a new home for our family. While there were bound to be ups and downs, not to mention our needless worrying, you handled it all amazingly – not to mention you protecting us from buying the wrong house and saving us $20,000 on the house we did choose. As the Business School recruits more and more faculty, I will be certain to strongly recommend that the incoming faculty call you.”

“Helene did a fantastic job for us. She was knowledgeable, well-informed, and always willing to go the extra mile … a true professional and a great person to work with!”

Don and J.T.

“Helene Kurtz was brought to my attention by a realtor from San Antonio, TX. He had never met her but was impressed with her Bio and wanted to ensure that I was well taken care of in my house search. I have received magnificent service from Helene and recommend her services to anyone who is looking for a home and wants to work with a very knowledgeable realtor but first and foremost a realtor who cares. I am in a home that I absolutely love and if it had not been for the services of this wonderful lady I would still be looking. As a veteran (retired) of the U.S. Army I feel that one of my countrymen/women has taken very good care of me. Helene, I salute you. God bless you and never lose that caring spirit. Thanks a million times over.”
