Lou came into a difficult situation. Our house was on the market for 70 days with no offers and we were still trying sell in the slowing fall period. He was very easy to work with. He answered our questions quickly, and informed us immediately of any developments as they arose. He ended up selling our home in two days. Thanks Lou!

We worked with Lou at NHE and he was wonderful to work with. We went with the new build process, which we had no experience with. Lou was a great help with everything from looking at floor plans, picking out options to the finance process. Lou made looking at homes fun for us. We always enjoyed his company! We have already recommended him to friends and will continue to recommend our friends and family to NHE. Thanks Lou we are happy we stumbled upon NHE!

Lou was great from the first pop up on the computer when we first started looking, he was there for us every step of the way, putting other realtors in there place!!!! Lou took care of our home that we sold, and he sold our house in 1 day people!!!! amazing photos etc... Top notch would recommend him to anyone trying to sell their home. Highly recommend, he is there every stop of the way, and you walk away from everything with a new friend.
