If your current office is meeting your needs, I look forward to working with you in the future.  If it is not it may be time to move to a company that shows that our agents are our greatest asset.  If you are looking to take it to the next level, grow your business and receive support, not competition, come and work with us!

 Although the CENTURY 21® System is the world's largest brand in real estate brokerage today, we are aware that “brand recognition” does not retain our sales agents.  We rely on a cracker jack staff and highly skilled trained agents working together to create synergy in our office. My office has made a total commitment to sustain agents like you. We have all of the support staff and systems in place to assist agents who are progressive and goal oriented. Our full time staff handles the processing and data entry for all transactions which allows our agents to focus on building their business.

As a non-competing broker, I remain committed to treating my agents like I want my agents to treat our clients.  I am able to spend my time training and coaching my staff and salespeople and marketing our company. We supply our agents with powerful marketing through television, magazines, digital boards and an award winning website. The CENTURY 21® System is also a leader in technology. Our innovative technology tools have transformed the industry and have helped to propel us ahead of the competition and successfully into the future of real estate. We provide the latest technology to our agents allowing them to give their clients the best service possible.

Customer Testimonial

Deborah Anderson

Seller Rating:

Deborah is very easy to work with. She is very knowledgeable and really takes into consideration our needs and wants. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a broker. She is a wonderful person and I value the friendship we have made!

Thank you Deborah for all of your time and patience! I truly do appreciate you! - Jackie Rathjen Lake Char July 2017

Jackie Myers

Buyer Rating:

I came across the property and negotiated a price with the sellers. I wasn't sure what to do next. Jackie had showed me several properties on the past month or so. I asked her to manage the sale for me. At closing, the sellers commented several times how helpful and kind Jackie had been. - Dave Kirby. lake Char July 2017

Kimberlee Granger

Buyer Rating:

We didnt choose Kim since this was a VA loan. She was assigned to us by Veteran's United. They chose the right person. Kim was absolutely wonderful and my wife and I could not have been happier with her. We would happily recommend Kim to anyone who is either in the market to purchase or to sell. She is professional, polite, patient and very efficient. This was our first time buying a home and she made it a wonderful experience. - Bradley Moreland, Westla July 2017

Karen Thibodeaux Barker

Buyer Rating:

My wife and I were new to the area and we were walking at the park one day and it started to rain. Ms Karen saw us walking in the rain with our 6 month old and our dog and offered us a ride. Though conversation we learned that Ms. Karen was a realtor. At that point we decided that when we were ready to buy a house we would use her as our realator because she was so kind to us. Therefore, we knew she would have our best interest in mind. - Shannon Maheia Lake Char July 2017

Suzanne McCoy

Seller Rating:

I have dealt with Suzanne McCoy in the past. All I can say is she sells everything she lists. - John Davis, Lake Charles July 2017

Linda Moffett

Buyer Rating:

Linda Moffett was extremely knowledgeable on the different options in the area, especially including schools which is important to us as we have small children. She patiently walked us through the process of buying our first home, as we were pretty clueless. She was very thorough, and absolutely bent over backwards to make every sure everything was perfect.

It was a great experience to work with Linda. She was very reachable, even on weekends. If she didn't know the answer on a specific property, she would hunt it down immediately. She knows lots of great references, such as contractors, gave us all the information for energy, water, and other utility companies. She was all-around fantastic and made the homebuying experience wonderful.

Linda really went to bat for us when it came to negotiating the price and asking for repairs after the inspection. She knew intuitively what is important to ask for, and was able to guide us to get the best deal and the safest house. She also was able to explain all about the inspection and appraisal process, and was able to reassure us through our 1st-timer nerves!

We highly recommend Linda Moffett to anyone interested in buying or selling a home. - Benjamin Azevedo, Md, La June 2017

John Koetter

Seller Rating:

Mr. John Koetter handled the sell of our home very professionally and made the whole process for us as easy and comforting as possible. We never had to leave our home to sign documents except for the closing. He always answered our texts and phone calls and all questions we had. He has a humble mannerism about him with professional qualities. We would definitely recommend Mr. John Koetter to family and friends. - Cassie And Travis Brouss June 2017

Sharel Hebert

Seller Rating:

How can I say enough good things about my experience with Sharel Hebert?!! She first helped my youngest son purchase his first home. As I watched her personal care and concern for him, I was convinced when it came time to sell my home, she was the one! She treated him as if he were her very own child.

Next came the sale of my family home. As a widow this was no regular sale. It was heart wrenching. Sharel say there with me as I would just break down and cry. She walked with me literally pulling me along when I could not think one more thought. She literally came to my house, rolled up her sleeves and spent the day helping me clean and get ready to show the house. I know that I know without that hello I could not have done it. Every step of the way she lovingly prayerfully walked with me. Sometimes you may think, my goodness real estate fees are expensive. I literally did not think that concerning this sale. She earned every dollar and more! She is truly gifted and the best at what she does. It doesn't end there. Sharel has found me a home in the area I've always loved. It's none other than Happy Lane! After years of grief and sorrows, I'll now reside on Happy Lane with a new beginning.

If your looking for an agent who truly cares for everyone involved and will work tirelessly for you, it's Sharel Hebert. These words don't even begin to describe what she's meant to me personally and my family! - Denise Laporte June 2017

She took what is normally an extremely complex process and simplified it. What more could you want? - Amanda Clavier, Sulphur January 2017
