Sophia Rasile - REALTOR®
Born & raised in Las Vegas, Nevada, I moved to Louisiana in 2004, just in time for Hurricanes Katrina and Rita! Having experienced first-hand the way that Louisianans come together during difficult times, witnessing the "I've got your back" attitude among neighbors, friends and even complete strangers...well, who wouldn't fall in love with this place? I consider myself extremely lucky to be a part of this community, to have been accepted and embraced by so many natives, and I absolutely love Southwest Louisiana. I also love selling real estate. I've met hundreds and hundreds of wonderful and interesting people during my real estate career here in Louisiana, and dozens of them are people that, today, I consider to be among my closest friends. It's the real relationships that are built during a real estate transaction...that mutual trust that must exist between agent and client...that I love the most. I also enjoy The Art of the Deal, also known as a well-done real estate transaction. My strong suit is that I always do my homework, and always make sure that my clients are as educated about a property and the market as they can possibly be before proceeding with a transaction. I always want to know the "back story" (what is motivating the seller and/or buyer? why is the property being sold? what is the ownership history of this property? how is the market in this area trending?, etc...) of any given property so that my clients can use that information to make the best decisions. I sell both residential and commercial real estate, as well as unimproved land. Each type of deal presents different challenges that I enjoy and I am skilled at brokering deals in all of these arenas. But I started in residential real estate and it is still my first love. And my earliest clients...the first time buyers and those folks who were displaced by the Hurricanes of 2004...they are still coming back to me today, some for the 3rd and 4th time, referring their friends and family, passing along my business card...and here we are in 2016, and I'm among the top producing agents in our area! Thank you, SW Louisiana, for your trust and loyalty. I am honored to serve you!
