"My husbands job transferred him to New Orleans from from Charlotte, NC. We researched New Orleans and the cities around, but still needed someone to help us instead of looking at pictures and renting from that. I reached out to Romula because she had so many Great Yelp reviews. She was very helpful and knowledgeable about the areas and the schools which was a HUGE PLUS for us with 2 elementary kids. She sent me properties and I told her the ones of interest and she drove about 45 minutes to an hour away so that she could FaceTime us and let us see the properties for ourselves. We picked a house, signed a lease and sent her the money through CashApp to secure the place. When we arrived to our new home we were very satisfied with the house and the area that we're in. She is a great agent to do business with because she had so much patience with us when we were undecided and couldn't make up our minds. If I could give her 10 stars "
"Romula is fantastic. On top of everything and got my place rented extremely fast.
Best experience Ive ever had with any Realtor.
Romula is the best, period."
"Romula has been my agent since 2007 and since then has guided me through the process of two properties. She's very knowledgeable about what she is doing, dedicated and a hard worker. I'm glad she's on my side and I look forward to many more years as my agent"
"Romula is a Godsend! If I could give her more than 5 stars,, I would. My situation,, being out of state(in CA,, about as far as you can be from New Orleans),, made it practically impossible for me to deal with all that needed doing in order to sell this property that was left to me due to my father passing away.
Romula stepped in and handled everything. She couldn't have done a more outstanding job given the circumstances.
She managed all estate affairs,, cleanings,, major repairs,, upgrades,, property movement,, and of course along with all buyer/buyer agent negotiations in record time.
She guided me gracefully through the entire process without skipping a beat.
Thank you Romula - you sincerely are the BEST!"
"Just closed on a home in New Orleans. We reached out to Romula because of her prior Yelp reviews and she did not disappoint. She with us long distance from out of state and went above and beyond offering to meet our moving truck,, meeting vendors who were working on our house before our official move in date,, and always checking in,, even weeks after the the sale closed. She knows the city well. We recommend her wholeheartedly!"
"I love Romula! Last month I had never been to New Orleans,, so I ran a web search for real estate agents. The first two didn't do a thing for me,, so I called Romula. Now I'm sitting in my nice little house,, owned free and clear,, and Romula was there for me every step of the way. Researching,, house hunting,, negotiating,, inspections,, insurance,, closing,, and even afterwards,, she didn't let anything slide. When some repairs turned out to be not up to standard after the closing was over,, she had the sellers over here right away making it right. I was happy with the whole process and I'm going to call her again when it's time to sell. When you want real estate in New Orleans,, just call Romula.
"Romula was a fantastic agent. She worked persistently on my behalf while I was buying my house. She knew the neighborhood that I wanted to live in, and helped me identify a number of potential houses. Ultimately, she was able to help me find a great place. It was real New Orleans treasure of a house, a two story house with a balcony and a shaded backyard. Even better, she was able to get me a great price for this place- almost 20% of the original asking price. Romula Rhodes is smart, professional and gets great results for her clients. I wholeheartedly recommend her. "
"I know it has been years but after noticing her account- I am compelled to write....
After Hurricane Katrina,, I returned to NOLA with a suitcase,, a dresser and a broken heart. I knew I was coming back but didn't have a clue what living options were available. I had briefly met Romula through friends and simply reached out to her on a whim. Immediately,, I was "flooded" with leads on living spaces that in all areas of Uptown New Orleans and Metairie. I hadn't even thought of the options "in the 'burbs". As it turned out there was more "bang for my buck" out there. I credit Romula for addressing my needs and finding areas that I would never have reviewed.
Still,, Romula's service did not stop there. So I have "leads",, but what does that mean? I recall Romula setting aside time to go over the options and breakdown each with an eye of an insider. We even visited a couple places together and on those visits I got to see what it was like to work face to face with this Realty Goddess. I felt she was genuine and honest - very honest. She didn't allow me to settle for what looked good. She asked me a lot of questions that made me assess what it was I really wanted in my new living space. Looking back I appreciated that the most as it was kind of a ..... growing process for me.
Well,, in the end a place was found. I lived there for years. And,, simply put,, I am a Romula fan. THE END"
