Tell us about your experience with Kara Breithaupt

    • As first time homebuyers, Kara was everything we needed and wanted in a realtor. She was prompt and thorough in all of her responses throughout the entire process. She was patient and fully explained each step as we got to it. Kara was also incredibly flexible when it came to showing us houses and meeting in person to put an offer on a house (even meeting us later into the evening and on holidays so we'd have a good chance at getting the home we wanted!) Finally, Kara is extremely knowledgeable about properties and the homebuying process in New Orleans and the surrounding areas so I really felt like we were getting the best deal possible in our home. Having Kara as our realtor meant that we could enjoy the journey of buying our first home rather than worry constantly because we knew we were in good hands.

    • My daughter wanted to move to New Orleans from California !!!I promised to help...we tried three agents that wanted us "to buy".Then we met Kara Breithaupt, and our troubles were over, No pushing to buy, it took 7 months of looking, starting and stopping to get exactly what my daughter wanted. Through all of this Kara was the guiding star the ultimate professional. The patients of a saint, solid advice on all issues. You can't find a better agent than Kara Breithaupt at Snap Realty.

    • Buying a house long distance was a daunting prospect but Kara made it all manageable. She listened to my needs and was able to work with my restraints. Kara is incredibly professional, knowledgeable and efficient. I highly recommend anyone looking for a real estate agent in NO to seek her out as I am sure you will never be disappointed

      - Lisa S.
    • couldn't have asked for a better realtor as a first time home buyer! Kara really puts in 200% for her clients and knows her stuff. She walked me through the home buying process every step of the way with a helping hand and superb attention to detail. I look forward to seeing her work her magic when I'm in the seller's seat next time!

      - Frances G.
    • My experience with Snap Realty has been remarkable. I can't explain how wonderful Kara and her team are. Thanks Snap Realty for helping me and my family find our dream home. Kara and her team are very knowledgable, outstanding and patient with their clients. I highly recommend Snap Realty and Kara.

      - Courtney W.
    • Originally I signed up with a different agent I never heard from them, very little contact unless I initiated it. Kara bought the company and contacted me immediately much to my surprise as I wasn't informed of a new owner. I instantly felt a connection and I could hear a genuine interest in helping me, I just knew at that point I was in the good hands. Kara posted my land sale on every site imaginable. From that point I received an offer and the rest is history. I highly recommend Kara and her company for your real estate needs. She adds a personal touch which you don't often see anymore

      - Deborah K.
    • Kara and her team are awesome. They helped me found the perfect home. Kara was extremely patient with me and my husband. She is very friendly, knowledgeable and professional. We felt very comfortable with her and her team. I would highly recommend her because she is amazing!!!!!

      - Penthana
    • Kara did a great job selling our house. She explained the process thoroughly and was always available to answer questions. We had an offer within a few days of listing - can't ask for more than that!

      - Patricia S.
    • Kara and her team are fantastic. They sold my home despite an extremely difficult tenant situation and complicated legal issues pertaining to probate and succession. Adding to these challenges was the fact that l lived in California, and was selling the home remotely. I was extremely happy to have this team leading me through this daunting task. Karas bubbly optimism was invaluable in getting me through when hiccups (through no fault of their own) would present themselves. I also greatly appreciated Kara's warmth and the time she took to lend a ear during some of the tough times. The whole team is very capable, proactive, and hard working; I felt like I barely lifted a finger when dealing with the logistics and paperwork. They took care of everything; things just got done. I highly recommend Kara and her team. They are a team you want by your side, working for you. Ill be forever grateful to them for getting me through this difficult time.

      - Kimberly B.
    • Kara represented me in the purchase of a double. When I first contacted her, she immediately sent and continued to send prospective listings to me by e-mail. When I decided on the property I wanted to buy, she was able to negotiate a purchase price much lower than I had discussed with her. Throughout the process, Kara had referrals for escrow, title, insurance and inspectors, which made things easy for me. The inspection report was acceptable to me, but she used items in it to negotiate a further reduction in the purchase price. She had many recommendations throughout escrow which proved effective and correct. I have given Kara the highest recommendations in local knowledge, etc. because she deserves them. Also, her assistant, Marystasia, was incredibly helpful and efficient as well. I just have to say they made my purchase experience pleasurable, if that is even possible!

      - Jeff B.
    • Kara was great. I described what I was looking for and she brought me directly to a house that matched my needs. I looked at other places but ended up buying the first house she showed me. As much of the paperwork as possible was handled electronically and we closed early (despite some minor delays from the seller's side). She also helped me find a lower mortgage rate and recommended great people to work with on the inspection, insurance, etc. etc.

      - Cody B.
    • Kara and her associate, Mary, did a great job selling my house. Kara was knowledgeable about what I should and shouldn't fix in the house before selling. She prompted the house really well and generated a lot of interest quickly. She had a great photographer that took beautiful photos. When the house went under contract, Kara kept me updated immediately on all developments and facilitated all communication that needed to happen between me, the buyer's agent, and the title company used for closing. She was able to answer any questions I had and did so extremely quickly. I would recommend her to anyone buying or selling.

      - Shea S.
    • As a first-time home-buyer, I was unsure of what to expect. Kara was extremely organized and extremely patient with my many questions. She listened to all of my needs and wants and helped me find an amazing home to meet all of them. Her guidance throughout made the entire home-buying process as easy and stress-free as possible. Kara is a fabulous realtor and I would recommend her without hesitation to anyone looking to buy!

      - Jess M.
    • Kara Breithaupt and her team made my first home buying experience enjoyable and easy. She offers electronic document signing which is very simple and convenient. I didn't need to free up time for meetings with my realtor every time my signature was needed. I believe this and Kara's skills as a negotiator made all the difference in successfully purchasing this property. I work in the service industry and I especially appreciate the level of service and dedication I experienced as Kara's client. I highly recommend Kara and her team to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate in New Orleans.

      - John R.
    • I would definitely recommend Kara. Kara is highly knowledgeable and professional. I was a fist time home owner and she found me the perfect home with an income unit that fit my needs. She was very patient with me and my many questions. She walked with me every step of the way educating me and being emotional support during the process. Upon closing on my first home, we stayed in touch and I am looking forward to working with her on my next property!

      - Katharina
    • Great experience working with Kara. She is extremely professional and efficient. She is somebody I definitely recommend. Kara is knowledgeable about her field and willing to go above and beyond. One great agent!!

      - Theodore G.
    • Kara was absolutely fantastic and was a pleasure to work with! She went out of her way each and every step of the process and couldn't have made buying a house easier! Kara has a great knowledge of the business and I definitely recommend her to anyone looking to buy a home! Will definitely work with again in the future. Thanks again!

      - Alexei L.
    • Kara and her team are a pleasure to work with. Exceedingly professional and knowledgeable. We needed to rush to close in 14 days and they went out of their way to make the process seamless.

      - Lisa B.
    • I honestly couldn't have anything better to say about Kara! She really helped me as a first time homebuyer and found properties that I liked that exactly met my specifications! Great negotiator, incredibly accommodating as far as scheduling viewing, and has a great knowledge of the area!

      - Phil M.
    • First of all, before reading this recommendation of Kara Breithaupt; I had never met her prior to the purchase of this condo. It was strictly by chance that I clicked her email address among other real estate agents available to inquire about the selected property. That arbitrary click turned out to be my best decision by far. In all my decades of buying and selling properties with many different real estate agents involved; I have never interacted with a more conscientious, precise, diligent, thorough, dutiful, comprehensive agent as Kara. She is very well organized and always attentive to my many requests and questions concerning the property. Her due diligence and guidance throughout the entire buying process was superb and impressive. I would highly recommend her on any property you're interested in buying. I wish I had met her years ago. She is best of the best.

      - Mark B.
    • Kara's persistence, professionalism, and patience deserve my highest commendation. I had a somewhat difficult house to sell (updated, but not a brand new, total renovation in an underappreciated location) and Kara stuck with it until she found the right buyer. She and her team worked tirelessly, through dozens of showings, respectfully coordinating with my tenants. She invested serious time and funds in marketing the property. She held my hand through the entire negotiation process and closing. Kara and her team are hard-working, patient, smart and savvy. I highly recommend working with Kara and her team.

      - Caroline L.
    • After being disappointed from a KW realtor, I searched better and I found Kara's info here on Zillow. Kara is very personable and professional. She was very thorough during my buying process. She made sure we looked at houses that met my wants and needs in safe and desirable neighborhoods. She showed me ways to look for costly damage that was not very noticeable at first glance and what would cause issues in a home overtime. She was with me every step of the way. I feel that I have learned a lot about home-ownership from her and was very informed during the process. Her assist Mary was very friendly and helpful! Even when Kara was out of town, she was still reachable. They were very attentive and diligent as team and were very available by phone and email. I feel like I have gained 2 new friends. Their hard work, reliability and persistence with me helped me buy my first home! The experience was very positive and I am very happy and satisfied. We are still in contact and I would RECOMMEND them to anyone buying a home. Anyone buying a home please contact Kara Breithaupt!!!

    • If you are looking to buy a house, Kara is one of the best around. I've worked with other agents on purchases before but never had the same kind of interaction or quality of work. She always answers or returns calls/text within a timely manner. She was always willing to show us properties even if I called the day of to make it happen. My wife and I were very picky about where we wanted to live and our budget. Kara gave us multiple options but not just with showing homes. She put us in touch with contractors building and a great mortgage company. When it was crunch time she was always there willing to help in any manner she could. I'll never recommend anyone but Kara. I'll only purchase or sell with Kara. Also, her assistant Marystasia is great as well.

      - Ryan D.
    • Kara is awesome! She helped walk me through every step of the home buying process, as I was a first time homeowner. She was able to negotiate a great deal for me. She was always available to answer questions and provide helpful information or guide me to great contacts for other services. I highly recommend her!

      - Jennifer R.
    • Kara is hands down the best realtor I've ever worked with. I'm definitely not a major real estate investor but I have bought and sold a few houses. Kara will be the only realtor I will ever work with again!! I had first contacted her from out of state to sell one of my properties that another realtor refused to list at my asking price. She had no problem listing at my price and had a full purchase price offer on the property within three days. When I was ready to make another purchase, I called her and although the property was listed "as is" in bad shape, she still managed to negotiate the price down. Remarkable realtor, I just can't say enough.

      - Janell
    • Kara really knows her stuff. From our first sit down to the final signing of the docs, she was professional, courteous and devoted to finding the perfect buyer for my condo in Uptown New Orleans. She answered all of my questions promptly and held my hand when I got nervous. I was confident that she would handle my interests at all times. If you are looking for a top notch realtor, book Kara now!

      - Nikki B.
    • Kara was available to show me houses right after first calling her. She put me in touch with my lender and was very helpful and responsive throughout the entire process, making my first home purchase a breeze. Great experience!

      - Jacob K.
    • Kara Breithaupt's time, attention, and expertise made an arduous, 5-month home buying process one of the best experiences I've ever had. Kara was always available to answer my questions, she often anticipated concerns, and she guided me with professional, knowledgeable instructions via email, text, and phone calls. During a particularly difficult period with our lenders, Kara called on my behalf repeatedly, and I always felt she was as vested in my home as I was. I have and will recommend Kara to all friends and family; her experience and market knowledge is invaluable, but her hands-on attention made me feel much more like family than just a client.

      - Jamie A.
    • Kara Breithaupt did the most amazing job for us, far exceeding anything we could have hoped for. My wife and I were first-time homebuyers, but both have graduate degrees from Ivy League schools so definitely did our homework. Kara was the perfect realtor for us. She's a relentlessly hard worker, a straight-talker, and quite frankly an all-round superstar! She combines expert knowledge of the city and the market with genuine patience and understanding. She was totally committed to getting us into the ideal house, given our price point, and to only making a deal that would be best for us no matter how much hard work it took. She's a keen negotiator and does enough volume not to be afraid to walk away from a bad deal or a slightly higher commission because she ultimately wants what's best for her client. We appreciate that so much and will certainly use her, and only her, when we buy or sell next time. For now, we are happily settling into our dream home!

      - Ben W.
    • Kara made it happen. Persistence, patience, great knowledge of programs, lenders, and all the options available. She worked as hard to find me a modest little home as I could expect any realtor would to find something on millionaire's row. A genuine person with an impeccable work ethic. I truly doubt I would have got my house if it weren't for her drive and support amongst all my indecisiveness and the competition in this fast market. Not to mention her very prompt and helpful assistant, Mary was a big plus as well.

      - Noah H.
    • If your in the market for a new home, Kara Breithaupt is the person to call. She is genuinely sincere and very compassionate about who she's working for. Buying our first home was a wonderful experience thanks to her. She made us feel like we were friends, not just clients. Two thumbs up!!

      - Rusty A.
    • Kara was phenomenal. I had tried to start this process with two other realtors, but Kara was the first one who made the initial steps so easy that before I knew it, I was out looking at houses. Miraculously, I found a house on the first day of searching, and from there, Kara took over. Throughout the process, she went above and beyond to make sure I knew all that was required of me, connected me with a lender, negotiated with the seller, and even took the time to inquire about insurance policies for my house.I give Kara my highest recommendation - I wouldn't ever go with anyone else! Kara is awesome!

      - Stefan L.
    • I would highly recommend Kara Breithaupt; she is an agent who never stopped working on my behalf. She loves her work and don't mind getting all the real estate information available to meet my needs. She is honest in every way. She works hard to get me the best deals possible while building great business relationships. It's great to have someone so friendly and dedicated.

      - Keith
    • Kara is amazing! She took time to learn my wants, needs, and was able to make recommendations according to this info. She was patient and worked around my hectic schedule!

      - Kimberlin
    • Kara was very helpful. We purchased a condo in New Orleans and Kara was very patient, taking us to a number of properties. We are overseas buyers and nothing was too much trouble for her - she made the whole process very easy. We can't recommend her highly enough.

      - Anne U.
    • Kara ( pronounced like "care a") is wonderful! Kara helped us to find our dream house in less than two weeks. She dedicated herself to meeting our needs expeditiously. She walked us through all the twists and turns of our search, inspections, negotiations and closing all with a smile and all the while answering all our many questions along the way. A true dedicated professional who knows what she is doing and who works hard for you.

      - Jackie & Dave
    • In the space of 5 days Kara found a house I adore, in just the right neighbourhood and at the right price. What impressed me most, though, was her responsiveness and patient, thorough explanation of the entire process. Much of our communication was conducted by email as I live overseas (13-hour time difference) and yet she still managed immediate responses. As new-comers to the area she provided excellent information regarding the idiosyncrasies of LA/NOLA laws and hazards (e.g. termites). Throughout the entire process she never pressured decision-making. She was also very responsive to my needs and priorities. Not once did I have to repeat what is important to me as I looked at homes and entered the negotiation process. Kara's demeanor is friendly and comfortable; she instantly put me at ease. She's a consummate professional and I have no reservations at all in recommending her. When the time comes to buy again, or sell, I will definitely be contacting her.

      - Shirine
    • This was my first home purchase AND it was a foreclosure. There were many times when I almost lost my mind, but Kara was cool and collected. She would break everything down in small tasks for me so I didn't get overwhelmed by the process. Her communication was perfect - she used a combination of phone calls, texts and emails. She and her team were always available at the last minute to meet with inspectors and contractors since I was at work most of the day. She listened to my wishes and asked good questions so I always felt she understood me. I would HIGHLY recommend Kara!

      - Danielle H.
    • Kara got us a great deal on a beautiful house well below the asking price. She walked us through our first home buying process all the way, helped us with scheduling inspections, and hooked us up with a great mortgage company. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

      - Sean M.
    • Kara worked with me for 4 months and over 60 houses to find just the right place for my boyfriend and me. We were very inexperienced and indecisive first time homebuyers and she walked us through the entire process. I never felt lost or helpless and I always knew she was only a phone call away to answer any question we might have. She was always responsive, patient, and helpful and talked me through more than a few crises. I loved working with her and would recommend her to anyone looking for a home. I almost miss getting to go see houses with her!

      - Christy C.
    • Kara is totally terrific! She is understanding and compassionate, willing to go the extra mile in making sure her clients are happy and completely satisfied. She hates to hear house hunters say "We could make this work" because she wants her buyers to say "This is our dream house!!"

      - Melanie E.
    • We were very satisfied with Kara. By far an outstanding realtor. She was with us step by step ,considering we had no clue what to expect but she walked us through and made sure this process was done as easy as it could possibly be. Very encouraging and kept an optimistic and pleasant attitude the entire time. Also went above and beyond to help us stay ahead. Hope she goes very far her and her entire team!

      - Jonathan B.
    • My experience with Kara when buying my first property was extremely enjoyable. She was professional and explained everything in great detail, every question was answered and nothing was left under the table. Her local knowledge of the New Orleans area was fantastic. I'm looking forward to working with her again! HIGHLY recommended.

      - Ben R.
    • Kara is the best. She kept everything running perfectly for us. She always returned calls promptly, provided all the paperwork in a timely manner and made excellent recommendations regarding our new location. We feel very lucky to have worked with her. By all means, call her.

      - Lynn M.
    • Kara Breithaupt is the most heartwarming professional we never meet. I had not brought a house in 30 years. Kara assisted me and my husband through all the steps. She advised us well. When we called or text, we always received a response in a timely manner. She is very approachable and easy to work with. Kara made us feel like family. We truly tested her patients and she passed the test by giving us that big beautiful smile. I would recommend Kara Breithaupt to my family and friends; she was a blessing to us.

      - Sarah & Henry H.
    • Oh my Gosh! It would be easier to list what I wouldn't rave about Kara! She has a great desire to connect a buyer to a home that truly makes them happy, and she'll scrape her oil pan on the streets of NOLA to make it happen! I always felt I could say what I felt about a property and if it wasn't good, she used that to ensure our next viewings were to my expectations. There is no doubt I'd ask Kara for help with another property or recommend her to my friends (in fact, I already did, and darnit, if he isn't pleased as punch with her)! I don't always buy houses, but when I do, I use Kara Breithaupt!

      - Nelle
    • Kara was definitely amazing in all aspects of my family finding a place to call Home! I'm very impressed by how responsive she is to any request and/or questions, always willing to work hard to get things done on time and properly. She walked me through the whole process of buying a house, always discussing pros/cons of any ideas my wife and I had. Even though it took us several months to find the best house, she stood by us and never let us down. I have been talking about her to friends and feel very comfortable referring them to her.

      - Leo B.
    • I have to say Kara and her assistant are very knowledgeable and persistent and their field. I've met some real estate agents in my time but none of them come close to the professionalism I had with her and her team. She was very helpful and patient with the bankers also. And she also helped me drop down my homeowners and flood insurance. I would highly recommend her to friends and family that are looking for their next home.

      - Kevin P.
    • As a first time homebuyer, I couldn't have asked for a more knowledgeable, experienced, or patient Realtor to guide me through the home buying process. Kara was committed to finding a home that met my needs and expectations. Not only was she always optimistic and upbeat, she was prompt in responding to all of my questions and concerns. She took the time to explain everything from applying for a loan, flood zones, insurance, and submitting a bid to inspections and the closing process. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a home in New Orleans. She is awesome!

      - Robert R.
    • Kara was an amazing agent to work with..we bought a house in new orleans but had to fly in from texas and she spent the whole weekend driving us to look at houses and providind stats on the neighborhood and schools .we found our house in one weekend and her negotiation skills and continious efforts got us into the house before summer was over.she is a agent you can trust to be on your side and such a pleasure to work with..thank you kara you made this all possible.
