Louise is the consummate professional. She has a ton of experience in the field and is extremely knowledgeable about the Monmouth County real estate market. In addition to her real estate skills, Louise has a keen eye for interior design and runs her own business, focusing on staging and property enhancement for rental or sale purposes. She helped me redecorate my shore home with minimal expenditures, which allowed me to rent my home quickly, and for approximately 40% more money than I was able to command last summer. Interpersonally, Louise is a pleasure to deal with. She is prompt, thorough, efficient, open-minded and has a great sense of humor. A real "go getter", I would recommend Louise without hesitation if you are looking rent, buy or sell in the Monmouth County area.
We were very impressed with Louise's knowledge of the area and the housing market. In addition, Louise always... went the extra mile to help us with any facet of the home purchase, mortgage, builder, lawyers, etc. We continue to be impressed by how much Louise continues to help us with small and large details even after we purchased the home. Louise is the best!
Louise was phenomenal in every aspect of what is a very stressful process. She has no scheduled hours, as she truly is your agent 24 hours a day, every day, including holidays. I was making offers and signing contracts that she was preparing well into the night and on weekends! I truly felt that I was searching for homes with a friend, and not someone I hired. Louise truly does go above and beyond - anyone would be lucky to have her as their agent.
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.
I have only positive things to say about Louise, who recently helped us in the purchase of a home in Wall, NJ. Buying a home can be a stressful process, but it was made easier knowing that we could rely on Louise's knowledge, expertise and genuine consideration of my family's best interests. She demonstrated the utmost in professionalism and responsiveness and she managed to be direct and honest while maintain a pleasant, kind and enthusiastic manner. She went above and beyond to make herself available to us, even at short notice, and her service exceeded my expectations. I have already recommended Louise to a close friend and I would recommend her again wholeheartedly and without reservation.

Louise was great! She handled difficult issues with calm expertise. She successfully pulled together a difficult set of circumstances in such a way that everyone was satisfied. I have and will recommend her without hesitation!!
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, knowledge of where and how to advertise, combined with a generous advertising budget undoubtedly contributed to her success. What also helped to see the home for top dollar were her staging abilities. She created such a warm environment that the buyer bought the entire contents of the home in a separate agreement, at a premium price. Want to see your home? Call Louise Kelly-Decker!

Louise has been a tremendous asset in the selling of our two properties and her invaluable assistance was critical in finding our new home. Her calming influence and thoughtful advice through the ups and downs of the selling/buying process was much appreciated. We like her so much; we invited her to our wedding last month! Highest recommendation!
Louise Kelly-Decker is a truly excellent broker in the Spring Lake Area. She is extremely knowledgeable 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 has 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.
Louise Kelly-Decker is a credit to her profession. From start to finish, she was thorough, candid, prompt, helpful and accommodating. In addition, she has a pleasant manner and personality. I would strongly recommend her to others seeking realtor services.
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 closing, which she went over, and beyond helped us, which saved us money. We would definitely use her again.
Louise thoroughly understood our needs and requirements and persevered over many, man showings until she found the house that met our needs. She did a great job and we would not hesitate to recommend her as a sellers or buyers representative.
Louise, led us through the purchase process in a professional manner, helping us resolve issues, making recommendations of service providers and providing excellent advice. If I need one, Louise would be the first realtor I'd call and I would not hesitate to recommend her to all. A true professional!
Louise did a great job of finding me a house in Farmingdale. Always stays on top of things. If you need a great realtor who works hard - give Louise a call. Would her again either to buy or sell. Thanks Louise!
Louise Decker is by far the best real estate agent I have ever worked with. I have worked with Louise as both a buyer (twice) and a seller. To say Louise is the consummate professional, while certainly accurate, does not quite do her justice. Louise went above and beyond my expectations - over and over again. A recent home sale unfortunately occurred during a family crisis. It is not overstating the situation to say that I could not have gotten through the move without Louise's help. Additionally, I would like to say that Louise never wasted my time, although I know I wasted hers many times. I would gladly recommend Louise to anyone.
Louise has helped me and my wife rent our house in Spring Lake on multiple occasions. I can't speak highly enough of the fantastic job she has done. She really is the best. Her knowledge of the Spring Lake market is priceless. Her responsiveness is constant and immediate. She calls or texts back almost instantly to any request. And she is amazingly proactive, always thinking ahead to add value to the situation. Her advice throughout has been spot on and she has a wonderful calm manner to all her advice. She is terrifically well organized and is on top of everything that needs to be done. Overall, I give her the highest possible recommendation.
Louise worked very closely with my wife and me to purchase and 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 negotiation skills were valued, but even more important was her constantly 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 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.

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 also 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 by the real assistance she provided for the closing process on my current home. It was amazing how she provided contacts, organized inspections, handled them when I couldn't be there for some reason or another and walked everything directly to closing. I could not have been happier with anyone else. Rest assured you will be in very good hands with Louise.
Louise Decker is simply the gold standard in real estate! Louise's market knowledge of the Spring Lake area ultimately led to my purchase of our current home. se is experienced and was incredibly responsive to our needs. I found her eye for value in the market place to be exceptional. Anyone who has ever searched for a home understands what a tedious and daunting process it can be. Louise did a masterful job in defusing this anxiety and smoothing out the transaction process. She worked tirelessly with my wife and I to get us into a residence we needed. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking a home to purchase. Even after the purchase was completed she remains an important resource for us years later. IF you have business to do please take my word that you cannot possibly do better than Louise Kelly Decker!
We worked w/ Louise for a very long time looking for just the right house in Spring Lake. She was very patient with us. We looked at many houses. She was most knowledgeable about Spring Lake and brought houses that were new to the market to us immediately. She helped us during the negotiating process and was very quick to get answers to our many questions. I would highly recommend her.
Louise Decker did an excellent job of advertising, marketing and presenting our home to prospective buyers. She not only did numerous open houses, but also rearranged and decorated to create appeal. She also was able to educate us in terms of a realistic pricing to assure a sale. Our home sold in a few months. I would hight recommend Louise Decker and would use her services when I am in the market again.
Louise was extremely helpful and knowledgeable when I was buying my first home. We worked together for a few months and she really took the time to help me understand the whole process. She was always available to talk and is very easy to contact. I know I can rely on Louise to help me with any questions and I trust her completely. Louise went above and beyond for me and I highly recommend her!
Louise Decker is the ultimate professional. She is highly motivated and was extremely focused on working with us in purchasing a waterfront condominium at the Essex and Sussex facility in Spring Lake, NJ. She demonstrated a high degree of knowledge associate with all the areas that she services and answered all of our questions thoroughly regarding those areas, and in particular the area of Spring Lake and the property that we ultimately purchased. She also demonstrated a high level of experience and professionalism in negotiation and finalizing our offer. She went out of her way to hand-carry our final offer to the buyer's broker (over an hours drive at an early hour of the morning) to insure meeting a deadline when the process got into the final stages of competition. Louise never once pressured us. She was always accessible and always a pleasure to work with. Without question or doubt we would recommend her to anyone.
We have been working with Louise Kelly Decker for about 6 months looking for a property in the Spring Lake area. We must have looked at 20-25 properties with her as our agent. Louise always kept us informed on the status of our dealings and represented us well in negotiations. I am happy to say we are near closing on a property that fits our family great. She is a true professional, and goes above and beyond her job description to help her customers, whether they are buyers or sellers she has their best interest at heart.
I began my search for a summer rental using a variety of apps and websites. It wasn't until I met Louise that my search really began. Her professionalism, expertise and knowledge of the area and market helped me find the ideal property. My ultimate goal was to purchase a beach house and with her assistance I ended up purchasing a home, instead of renting and we were in our new home in time to enjoy the summer. Working with Louise was an absolute pleasure and I feel fortunate to have found her!
Louise Kelly Decker is a total professional and I would trust her with any real estate needs, whether buying/selling or looking to build. I purchased a home in Spring Lake Heights with her help, and she searched hard and negotiated well for me. Louise scoped out properties for me first, so I did not have to travel down the shore from North Jersey for properties that were not right for me. She even sent video of houses and neighborhoods to give me a good feel for the property. She also recommended a local lawyer and services such as painters and decorators, a real help when you buy a summer home and need to get it ready for your family's enjoyment when you live in the area.
We had been through several realtors. They promised us the moon, but once we signed with them they disappeared. When we were lucky enough to contact them it was the old "you have to drop your price" routine. Then we found Louise through a friend at work. The lady is a dynamo! She was constantly in contact with us (and still is), not only during working hours, but evenings, weekends and Holidays also! Whenever we reach out to her (text, phone, e-mail, or fax) we can count on a response in minutes, not days! She came to our home and not only recommended stylish improvements, but also fully staged the entire house! Understand this = she didn't suggest what furniture she thought would look good, she actually brought her own furnishings and carried them into our house! Then there was a luncheon for local realtors! We were speechless! And then came the pictures (with professional equipment) virtual tours, gorgeous ads, printed literature, mailings, flyers and marketing programs! The difference is passion. Louise loves real estate, and it shows "Exceeding Customer Expectations" really is what she does, over and over again! Wow! So much energy!

Louise is a top-notch agent. She successfully helped me sell two of my father's properties.
We were extremely pleased having Louise as our real estate agent. She is the ultimate professional and her marketing skills are outstanding. The virtual tour and pamphlets she produced for advertising our condo almost made us rethink selling! We would highly recommend her to anyone interested in buying or selling real estate.
We first met Louise several years ago when we were renting a home in Spring Lake. My wife and I were impressed with her professionalism and warm personal manner. When we decided this year it was time to purchase, our first (and only call) was to Louise. She was terrific in finding out what type of houses we were interested in and she put together a list of qualified properties. Her attention to detail wand desire to not waste our time was greatly appreciated. When we found the right home, she worked through many issues, which were truly above and beyond the scope of what a realtor normally handles. Always honest and trustworthy, Louise was a pleasure and we would highly recommend her.
My husband and I recently purchased our first home together; we are both from different parts of NJ and have always wanted to buy our first house at the beach, but had no idea where to begin our search. After looking online for both houses and an agent we found Louise through a listing. After getting to know both of our personalities and us she helped us to narrow our search to the Spring Lake area. We are now in the perfect neighborhood and a beautiful town that we may have never discovered if it wasn't for her help. She was always accessible to answer any questions we had and spent countless weekends showing us properties until we found the perfect home!
Louise was both the agent for our sale and purchase of our homes. She listed and sold our house in 46 days for full asking price, unbelievable! Her marketing was outstanding; she did some staging and had a professional photographer do the photos for the listing and advertising. Always returned calls and texts quickly and was available for all inspection, etc. Would highly recommend her!
My wife and I first met Louise as a highly recommended real estate broker in the Spring Lake area of the Jersey Shore. Louise ultimately found us our house, but has been more than "just" a real estate broker, offering advice and assistance "above and beyond" - and not only up until the closing of the sale, but thereafter provided advice, recommendations and on-site assistance in connection with engaging and dealing with contractors and service providers. "Exceeding Customer Expectations is What I Do" is an overly modest understatement on her part. We recommend Louise as highly as is possible!!
We worked with Louise for a couple of months in search of a second home in the Spring Lake, Nj area. Louise was very helpful in educating us about the area and the current real estate market in Spring Lake, Sea Girt, Avon by the Sea, and Bradley Beach. All communications were prompt, professional, and on point. Louise was honest in her evaluations of the properties we visited, as opposed to trying to sell us anything & everything. We felt Louise was truly "OUR" agent in the negotiating processes.
Louise was a tremendous asset to my family and I in the purchase of our second home. She worked with us for over 6 months to find the right property to fit our needs. Louise was patient, understanding and always available to meet with us to show us the latest properties on the market. She provided us with data points to help us in the bidding process and gave us access to tools that allowed us to come to decisions on our own. We felt well educated on the market in its current state as well as two to three years prior. During the closing process Louise was invaluable - helping us work through many challenges. She lives in the area and went above and beyond to check on the progress of action items. Even after closing we know we can count on Louise to assist with any questions or concerns
Louise is an absolute Professional. In what ended up being a very tough situation she was relentless in helping us sell the house in a limited amount of time. Her advice through the process was essential, she cuts through all the noise and gives solid advice. I highly recommend Louise, she is an outstanding realtor and very classy.
