Ratings & Reviews

My wife and I worked with Louise to purchase a vacation home in the Spring Lake area. It was immediately apparent that Louise was very familiar with the area. After carefully listening to what we were looking for, she brought us to multiple properties that fit our needs within our price range. Louise was always quickly responsive to our calls and helped us win a competitive bidding situation. In addition, she is a wonderful person. We would highly recommend Louise to anyone looking for a home in the area. We are very happy we decided to work with her.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $350K in Wall Township, NJ.

I am a first time homebuyer and was very pleased to have Louise as my agent. She explained the entire home buying process and was able to answer all of my questions and concerns. She was available whenever I needed her and communicated constantly even during a busy holiday schedule.

I had a lot of questions regarding the property and Louise was able to get me detailed information that I was not able to discover on my own. I was very impressed by her knowledge of the area and current real estate market.

Louise was very helpful during the negotiating phase and everything worked out just as planned. The whole process was so smooth and easy.

I am glad to have worked with Louise. I would highly recommend her.

Found a tenant for a Single Family home in Spring Lake, NJ.

Louise is a consummate professional. She is extremely responsive to clients' needs and requests, and very timely with her responses. The shore home I own and rent out in the summer was only rented for 4 weeks last summer, and this year it was rented out for almost the entire summer just 4 weeks after hitting the rental market. More importantly, with the décor and style recommendations made by Louise through her staging business (www.decortoscore.com), my house commanded rates approximately 35% more than last summer's. Personally, I find Louise a pleasure to deal with, with an excellent sense of humor, and a down-to-earth sensibility. I recommend her in the highest sense of the word.

Sold a home in 2013 in Villa Park, Spring Lake, NJ 07762.

Louise is a magician. Somehow she managed to materialize a terrific buyer and sell our Ocean Front home in less than 60 days; this only months after Sandy. Her hard work, knowlege of where and how to advertise, combined with a generous advertising budget undoubtedly contributed to her success. What also helped sell the home for top dollar was her staging abilities. She created such a warm environment that the buyer bought the entire contents of the home in a seperate agreement, at a premium price. Want to sell your home? Call Louise Decker.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $1.0M in Spring Lake, NJ.

Louise Decker-Kelly is a truly excellent broker in the Spring Lake Area. She is extremely knowledgable about the area and all of the local regulations which was very helpful to us when we were evaluating various options. I can't say enough for her knowledge of the area - she had been in most of the houses in the area and definitely was able to spot a bargain. Once we found a place that we liked, she worked like a dog to get it done for us. She is aggressive without being pushy and a pleasure to work with; continues to go above and beyond the call of duty even after we have closed.. We would recommend her without hesitation to anyone looking for a value added broker in the Spring Lake area.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $425K in Manasquan, NJ.

Louise sold our house for us in Manasquan and we would highly recommend her. She is very knowledgeable about the market and has a keen eye for detail. We had a few issues before the closing which she went over and beyond to help us which saved us money. We would definitely use her again.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $700K in Rumson, NJ.

Having only used a broker once in my life and handling most of the transactions myself for a NYC apartment, I was truly and more than pleasantly surprised by the assistance and knowledge I received from Louise. Not only was she able to assist me in understanding the market and its current position, but she assisted me in past and projected valuations, how and where the information comes from and how to better use it. This was only complimented but the real assistance she provided for the closing process on my current home. It was amazing how she provided contacts, organized the inspections, handled them when I couldn’t be there for some reason or another and walked everything directly to the closing. I could not have been happier with anyone else. Rest assured you will be in very good hands with Louise.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $1.075M in Spring Lake, NJ.

Louise worked very closely with my wife and me to purchase an investment property in Spring Lake, NJ. This is the 6th property I've purchased, so I've worked with a lot of real estate agents. Louise wins the "best of" award -- hands down. She has gone out of her way every step of the process, and ours was not simple. She helped identify a property that hit our sweet spot as far as our investment objectives and plans went. Her negotiating skills were valued, but even more important was her constant keeping a pulse on the situation, which avoided a competitive bidding situation. Her persistent advice on oil tank testing saved us from a potential disaster. The deal she brokered was complicated by Hurricane Sandy and flooding, during which we were under contract. The valuation of the property became a question, and Louise provided all the information we needed to monitor the market and our significant investment, Finally, we were purchasing the property from an estate that was divided internally, and Louise navigated the complexities. We got through it all successfully.

Louise is extremely responsive, and thinks nothing of doing the legwork to help her clients. She answered countless questions, contacted local contractors and service providers, coordinated and attended meetings with the town building office, etc. I never needed to prod, or ask twice (this is a first for me). She also continues to look out for us proactively, even after the closing. We really appreciate all of her help.

Bought a home in 2012.

Louise helped me to buy a house in Spring Lake and buying isn't always so easy. Many issues seems to come up when buying a house these days and Louise was always on top, making phone calls or getting in her car to get something resolved. Whether it is an issue with the mortgage, the seller, lawyer, insurance, Louise will take care of it for you without you even asking her to. In today's environment you can't afford not to have someone like Louise watching your back!

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $650K in Spring Lake, NJ.

My wife and I interacted with Louise Decker to purchase a home in Spring Lake Heights. Louise is a professional. She has a thorough knowledge of the areas that she is showing and is willing to go the extra mile. Louise responded extremely quickly with all manners of communication (e.g phone, e-mail). She has provided thoughtful insight to the purchasing process and brought a certain calm to what can sometimes be a very stressful and emotional decision. I would contact Louise again for myself and recommend her very highly to anyone who asks me to refer a Realtor.
