As a lifetime Texarkana resident, Heather is very familiar with the area and its growth trends.

We had previously tried to sale our home by owner and were not successful. Our situation was not ideal and there were other personal issues at stake. Teresa was very understanding and worked very hard to locate a buyer for our home taking all the other circumstances in consideration. I was very impressed with not only how quickly she was able to accomplish this, but also with the deal that was negotiated. It was such a positive experience that I used her to purchase my next home, and there will be no question who I will contact when it's time to sell again. I HIGHLY recommend Teresa Liepman for either a purchase or if you are selling. She handled both transactions for me above and beyond my expectations.

Teresa was great in selling our home in the country. Our first realtor stuck a sign in the yard, did a listing and left it to chance. Not Teresa, using every means available she got the listing out there and we immediately got results. My daughter and son-in- law referred Her to us and were we glad. We got what we wanted for the house in a timely and professional manner. Thank you again Teresa and Team!

by BD Austin

I highly recommend working with Porcha. She was very professional and responsive to our needs and concerns. If you are looking to buy or sell contact her!!!

by Julie H

Laura just helped us close on our home. It was truly a seamless and painless experience with her. We, at all times, felt like she was on our team. She is friendly, professional and will have your back. She also recommended State Bank and Tracey Wardlaw for our mortgage and that too was a terrific experience. We have a lot listed with her and she has been informative and is marketing it well. I would recommend her to anyone who wants support, professionalism and no pressure. My fiance and I both think she is awesome.

So, we're gonna move. Now what? Decided we were going to need a Realtor. Now I'm not a smart man, as Forrest Gump said, but I know smart people. We contacted Heather, and she said she'd help us. She guided us through, helping us make decisions, using her expertise as a real estate professional. Told us our strong points and the weak ones as well, so we could work on those areas. She has been a friend and guide! We have no doubt that she, as well as we, have been praying for the next owner. God led us to this house and to Heather as our Realtor. Like i said, I'm not a smart man, but we were smart enough to contact Heather and we would highly recommend her to anyone that needs her help!!! Thanks, Heather!

by James and Donna

Christy went above and beyond to get our closing on the date we negotiated. She is very knowledgable of current real estate values and homes available on the market. Christy will be my go to agent!
