I just wanted to let you know what a wonderful experience it was having you handle the nearly ten years with at least three other real estate agents and also for sale by the owners when the estate heirs between real estate agents.
When you first contacted me to let me know that you were signing a listing agreement to sell the property and that you were confident that you could secure a buyer and get the property to a final act of sale, I was somewhat skeptical as a I had been so advised by other agents at least twice before. Added to that history was the reality that at least two of the estate heirs were living out of state and without internet access or e-mail addresses. You did a wonderful job communicating with the estate heirs on all sales negotiations and final sales terms. Your willingness to handle all the communications with the estate heirs saved them quiet a bit of money as they were able to handle all the negotiations directly through you rather than going through me as the attorney for the estate. The whole title examination and act of sale process was efficient and without any delays.
I truly appreciate all that you did for the estate heirs to finally get this property sold and to get it sold in a pleasant, professional, and prompt manner. I consider the job that you did to be an outstanding one and it was truly a pleasure to work with you throughout the sales process.
With kindest personal and professional regards,
Laurie R. Hagan - Attorney at Law
This is to appreciate as well as to certify that Ms. Robyn Schmitt of Harlow Realtors, 609 Metairie Rd. #105, Metairie, LA 70005, as a real-estate agent assisted me in purchasing the house that I have been search for the last four years here in the New Orleans area.
Once we moved to Louisiana in 2012 to join University of New Orleans, We had been looking for a house to buy in the New Orleans area. However, we (I and my wife) are very hard to be satisfied having various parameters in mind. We met various real-estate agents, who tried to help us buying our best house. However, we had to break everyone's patience. Finally, we met Ms. Robyn -- she is very friendly, informative, helpful and hardworking. Most importantly, she never gave up finding us to choosy. Ultimately, we chose a house and Robyn did a wonderful job communicating, arranging necessary paper-works and efficiently coordinating various people on the line and promptly providing us all the information needed for the next steps. Frankly speaking, being so tight with schedule and being choosy, we could not buy any house with any other agents except Robyn.
I would always recommend Robyn and appreciate her assistance very much.
With best Regards,

We just wanted to take the time to thank you for all of the hard work you put into helping us get our uptown home in New Orleans. Being that we are based in New York and the fact that my husband has a very diverse real estate portfolio, made the buying process much more tedious than expected. We appreciate how diligent and fair you were while working with us and the sellers, who were also your clients. This deal took much longer than anyone expected, some agents may have even given up, but you were patient, kept a positive attitude, and contract revisions/extensions were always thorough and sent over extremely quickly. Being that we live out of state, you went beyond your duties in helping us coordinate and communicate with the necessary people to make this sale go through as smooth as possible. You even got us the information needed to get our utilities set up. Thanks to you we are thrilled to have a home that we love in a great neighborhood and can bring our baby boy to learn his New Orleans roots during the summer and holidays. We look forward to working with you in the future I don't believe anyone could do a better job and will recommend your services to anyone looking for a home in the New Orleans area.

"Robyn came to me as a reference from a coworker and I could not be more pleased with her level of knowledge and effort in helping me buy my first home. What started as a search for a new construction home turned into me building a home with contractors who were inexperienced in working directly with clients. Robyn worked relentlessly. She was very responsive answering texts/calls from me, while simultaneously project managing the contractors to make sure every detail I wanted was realized and things happened on time. Her commitment to stick by me from beginning to end constantly amazed me. She is passionate about her career and helping people, shes's professional, compassionate and walked me through every stage of the home-building and -buying process. She is a true gem."

Robyn Schmitt was an absolute dream to work with. I don’t think words will do justice but the whole experience was above and beyond what I could ever expect and I know for a fact that I would not have been able to have gotten through the home buying process without her tenacity, wisdom and guidance. She worked with me despite budget contracts and never made me feel less than. From the beginning when I was dead set on houses that were just not a good fit for me (she showed me a completely different house off of my radar, that I ended up putting an offer in on, and ultimately getting) to the actual process of purchasing, to inspections, and the headaches that arose, she was a beckon of light through the whole thing.
When the house didn’t get approved for FHA despite that being the plan, I thought the whole deal was off and was devastated but I forgot I had Robyn on my side. Robyn did what Robyn does best in those moments and made the necessary calls, dug in deep, and made a miracle happen. Within a day, I had a new loan type in the works, the deal was still on, and I was still getting the home I wanted. I was amazed. She was always on top of everything, always clear and considerate, always easy to communicate with, working late into the night, and early in the morning and I know she had a lot going on but I felt like her number one client the whole time. When unforeseen issues arose she handled them with grace and a stick-to-it-ness that I was amazed to see, and I’m pleased that through it all, friendship and laughter was able to permeate through the inevitable stress that undoubtably came from the home buying process.
From the small moments she was there when I felt discouraged and defeated to the moments she didn’t let me give up on my dream of home ownership, when I thought it might be difficult and I would have to wait another year, after months and months of working together, I was left with a feeling that she genuinely cared both about her clients, and she was genuinely happy to see them succeed. She invested in me and wanted to see me achieve what I set out to do. When faced with a setback, she didn’t stop, she found a way around, and kept on working, on behalf on me, to ensure that I got what I wanted, and never gave up. I’m so fortunate to have met Robyn, on both a personal and professional level. If I ever buy again, there will be only one person I call. And I would recommend her to anyone buying a 100k home to a multimillion dollar home, because she can traverse any territory and she is a miracle worker who is authentic and dedicated first and foremost to her clients.
We want to commend you on doing such a great job of promoting, advertising and pursuing every opportunity to rent our home in a timely manner. Your connections and tenacity sets you apart from other agents. We have tried to sell our home or rent it for a long time and you are the only one that was able to achieve this. We like that you made sure to be available for all showings of our home. By being at the showings you were able to point out the features and benefits of our home, as well as, the view and golf course.
Being the owners and builders of our home makes it sensitive and personal but you were aware of this and considered our feelings.
Knowing you sold two properties already in our neighborhood made us sure you were the right person.
After renting our home you helped us quickly find a home to rent that fit our needs and in a beautiful neighborhood. We are enjoying our new home.
You were always available to us, worked hard to get everything done and kept things confidential.
We think of you as not only our realtor but a friend. When the time comes to rent or sell our home again there is only one person we want to do this and that’s you, Robyn Schmitt. We will recommend you to anyone selling or buying a home.

Andi and I are still floored away at how quickly you were able to sell our lot! And
you got us the price we wanted!
I never wanted to list with a realtor, thinking I would have no problem selling the lot
myself. After 6 months for sale by owner and probably close to 100+ calls, we only
received a few offers, all of which were well below what we felt the lot was worth. I
was still determined to not use a realtor. Hard-headed I know!
The day you contacted us out of the blue, I was very skeptical. The second time you
followed up, I was still pretty skeptical. After a few more weeks and hearing from
you a third time, I reluctantly agreed to let you list the lot for us. Five days later, you
certainly changed my mind. You brought us an offer well above our bottom line. I
I have no doubt your hard work, tenacity, and professionalism in listing,
photographing, and marketing the lot made all the difference in the world. We
would gladly let you represent us in any future listings, hands down. Thank you for
reaching out! You definitely made believers of us, and we feel we have made a new
friend along the way.

What to say - Robyn is a great Realtor! She goes above and beyond to help us succeed in our business. She is proactive and is always on the lookout for new renovation projects for us that make good sense, and when we complete them she gets them sold. For one recent project she was there walking the property in the final stages of construction making note of the finish selections and was on top of the sales process from the moment it was ready to show. We are looking forward to working with her again!

"Robyn is always available. She's the hardest worker I know. Treats you like you are her only client. She gets it done ASAP no matter what the job. I would not hesitate one second to recommend her to anyone. She will inevitably win awards for her work in this field. She's always smiling and upbeat. Treats everyone with respect. Her technical knowledge of today’s modes of communication is second to none. She knows how to get your property in front of the maximum number of people possible. If she's willing to list your property hire her now."

" I first met Robyn Schmitt from Harlow Realtors for the first time when I called about a property she had listed. I was looking for something very specific for my husband and I found this home advertised on the internet for sale. I have bought and sold many properties and have worked with many realtors but I have never worked with someone like Robyn. She is very efficient and easy to work with during the entire process. EVERY TIME I called she answered! EVERY TIME I had questions she answered them all immediately and in detail. She was always pleasant and made the process of buying a home less stressful. I highly recommend Robyn Schmitt as I will work with her again!"

As a military member I have had the opportunity to work with realtors across this country and never met someone like Robyn. You can tell that Robyn truly cares about her clients. She listens to what they are looking for, asks follow up questions to help fine tune the search and does hours of research to find your dream home. She recommended a neighborhood, based on our desires, we never thought to look in and now are a home owner there. She will be there every step of the way ensuring everything is perfect before you move in. The only way to sum Robyn up is by saying she is a persist (just ask the person who built and sold our house), extremely knowledgeable, caring agent who will find your dream home!

We wanted to take a moment to thank you for the great experience we had in purchasing our first home.
As you remember, when we first met you, we were referred to you from some friends of ours whom you also helped purchase their first home. The process of buying a home can be very tedious and scary, especially for first-timers like us. Despite our very demanding schedules and tight deadline, we told you we only had weeks to find a home that fit our budget, move out of our current home, and still fit in a 2-week international vacation.
As expected, you delivered. You not only helped us find our dream home in the first day, but also facilitated the final construction changes and negotiations while we were away. Even with so many things in the way, you were able to help us get our dream home.
We really appreciate everything you have done to help us through this process. We are reminded every day of all the things you have done for us. Thank you again for all of your help!

Hi Robyn! Below is my testimony for your wonderful and heart felt services. I keep reading it thinking that it just doesn't express how GREAT you are at what you do and how you have literally taken me under your wing and bent over backwards for me. Words just cannot express it enough! Thank you SO much for EVERYTHING you have done for me!
“Robyn Schmitt is by far the most helpful, reliant, trustworthy, and caring realtor that I have ever met. As a young woman moving from Virginia to Louisiana, without any prior knowledge of the New Orleans area, I had many concerns. That, of course, was until I spoke with Robyn. Not only did she find me my dream home that was in a safe and affordable area, but she also went far beyond her obligations as a realtor to ensure that my move went smoothly. I highly recommend Robyn’s services and I look forward to working with her again in the future.”
"Agent goes above and beyond her job duties as a realtor to make sure buying a property is a seamless process from beginning to end. In addition Robyn keeps in touch well after I closed on this property and is managing my rental of the condo. She is a wonderful business person and has been a joy to work with."

Robyn was so good, I mean GREAT to work with. She answered every question that I could ask with the confidence that I was looking for. She gave me advice on things that I never would have thought of. And most of all, after the sale , whenever I called her for a question, she always answered me right away. I have the utmost respect for her and would recommend her to everyone I know.

“Myself ,Steven Dauenhauer, and my roommate John Pitre recently contacted Robyn Schmitt in search of a place to rent. Within a couple hours she had several listings in our budget and location. She showed us the listings that we liked soon after. Once we decided on a place she handled all of the headaches and lease negotiations for us and had us living in the house we wanted within days. Robyn was amazing through the entire process and we strongly recommend her.”
