• Representing Your Best Interests-legally and ethically
I feel that we at Keaty Real Estate have the best tools
available to sell your home quickly, conveniently, and for
the highest price possible.
I am more than willing to provide any paperwork that you may
need to sell your home (Louisiana specific purchase
agreements and the newest property disclosures). This is a
free service to the public and these documents are available
in the Forms section of the home page.
In most cases I can negotiate reduced commission rates!!
