David's Reviews David really gets to know his clients and their needs. He got to know our taste right away and was able to show us only properties that we would seriously consider. We found our perfect house in the first week of meeting David and we were moved in three weeks later. I would say that he is very prompt and dedicated to serving his clients. He is very personable and easy to work with. I will definitely call on David for any of my real estate needs and refer him to my friends and family....Brooke- Slidell, LA 6/30/2011 As a former real estate sales agent who is now inactive, I am very impressed by David Stewart. He is smart, hard working, knowledgable, and he has great integrity. That is a rare mix in the world of realtors! I would heartily recommend him for any real estate ...

Slidell is only a hop skip and a jump away from New Orleans, however if you don't feel like making the drive across the lake there is plenty to do here.  We have great restaurants and bistros all over the town as well as some pretty good night life too.  Here are just a few links of different restaurants and night clubs you may want to check out.  If you have any questions please let me know.  Thanks!

This part of Louisiana is known for its rich decadent food and no one around here is afraid to eat as much as they want!  I know one of my favorite things to do is eat...  To help off set some of the food I work out at Slidell Athletic Club.  I attached a link to the clubs website as well as a few other clubs you may be interested in, in the area.  For any questions please let me know.  Thanks!

Slidell is a very family oriented town.  Close enough to New Orleans to make the commute everyday but far enough away to have that small town feel.  Families love the area because of the great school, low cost of living and the plethora of activities for children.  I've included just a few links of extracurricular act ivies for children.  If you have any questions or would like more information about Slidell please feel free to contact me.  Thanks!  SportsDanceworksRick Weems' Martial ArtsSlidell Bantam Baseball Association (SBBA)Slidell KicksSlidell Rocks (Rock Climbing)Slidell Youth Basketball Association (SYBA)Slidell Youth Football Association (SYFA)Slidell Youth Soccer ClubParks- Slidell, LA

I have been in the business for some time now but I still get flustered when I look over the property disclosure papers and they aren't filled out correctly.  A lot of the questions are left blank and some answered yes don't have any explanation to the yes answer.  Why not? I wonder if the listing agents realize this is to protect them and their clients?  Get these papers filled out correctly the first time.  It will save you time from answering extra phone calls that I or another agent may have about the answers.  It also will keep you from having to meet with your client a second time to answer the questions correctly.  I also recommend that your client fill out the paperwork with you present to answer any questions as best as possible.  What if your client has moved out of town?  Thi...

Eden Isles Subdivision in Slidell, LA is one of Slidell's original watefront communities.  It provides deep water access that lead to Lake Ponchartrain.  Most of the subdivision is a quick commute to the lake and great for larger boats since there are no low bridges to go under.  The architecture is a mix of Acadian, Ranch and Traditional and the houses are approximately 1500- 6000 square feet. Its just 30 minutes to the city and very close to shopping, Cross Gates Athletic Club & Salmen High School "Home of the Spartans"   School Districts: Abney Elementary/St. Tammany Jr. High/Salmen High School   For more information about Eden Isles or any other subdivision visit www.realestatepub.com

I don't get the occasion to take my family out to eat very often.  But when I do I prefer the locally owned establishments.  One of my favorites is The Times Grill located in the old train station in Slidell.  They have some of the best burgers I have ever tasted.  Don't care for a burger than try their grilled fish or the specialty of the day.  I think you will find something you like.  The prices are very reasonable as well.  This is another requirement of mine when we eat out.  I like good food for a not so expensive price.

Unless the buyer who makes an offer on your home has the resources to qualify for a mortgage, you may not really have a sale. If possible, try to determine a buyer's financial status before signing the contract. Ask the following:1. Has the buyer been prequalified or preapproved (even better) for a mortgage? Such buyers will be in a much better position to obtain a mortgage promptly.2. Does the buyer have enough money to make a downpayment and cover closing costs? Ideally, a buyer should have 20 percent of the home's price as a downpayment and between 2 and 7 percent of the price to cover closing costs.3. Is the buyer's income sufficient to afford your home? Ideally, buyers should spend no more than 28 percent of total income to cover PITI (principal, interest, taxes, and insurance).4. ...
