Completely agree with everything others have said here about Lacy Zihlman. Lacy helped us sell our home during this crazy housing period. Lacy is not only extremely knowledgeable about her field, but calm, poised and supportive throughout the entire process. Buying/selling can be an emotional roller coaster and Lacy was always there to guide us through, just about the time a question pops into your head, she emails or texts about it. I honestly many times felt like we were her only clients even though I know she was juggling many. She provides great, clear, insightful advice and reminders and honestly just an overall sense of peace to the process. She knows the market and area very well and really helps you watch out for pitfalls. I believe she really cares about the people she works with and it shows. Could not more highly recommend!

Best Real Estate Agent we have ever had!!Lacy Zihlman is friendly and professional. She is very knowledgeable and gives guidance in an assured kind way. She watches out for her customers to make sure they are doing action items in a timely manner for buying or selling of their home. Always available for our texts or calls during the process. Best Realtor we have had!! We’re older and have had only horrible realtor experiences throughout the years. How refreshing to see how it’s supposed to be done!!

There is no satisfaction, no greater gratification, than that you receive when you close on the purchase of your own home in this Market. Thank you !! Lacy Zhilman and Astra Reality, for doing it with sincerity and integrity. Being first-time homebuyers, we were nervous about the entire real estate process, but Lacy stood with us like a family with good intentions and a desire to help. I would highly recommend !! she is truly a Gem.

Lacy was amazing and attentive to my family needs when we were looking for our home during the pandemic. Her exceptional knowledge in the real estate market helped us find the perfect home.
18:20 17 Mar 21
I had the pleasure of working with Lacy to purchase my first home, she made the process so enjoyable! She was very patient with me since I was nervous about such a big purchase and she also made sure I understood the process and what I needed to do at each step. I would highly recommend!
17:54 09 Mar 21
Natalie Imhoff is the absolute best!! She helped us find our perfect house during this crazy seller's market. The experience of having to buy a home when there is very little inventory, having to compete with multiple offers, and paying a higher than normal asking price can be a bit discouraging but Natalie made this as pleasant as possible! She was patient and kind during all of our house viewings (we asked her to meet up almost everyday for a couple weeks lol) and she even shared her insight on things to look for inside the house. This way we could make our best educated decision on the house. She is very personable and great with kids! My daughter loved talking to Miss Natalie. My family would recommend her 100%!
19:50 07 Mar 21
Lacy did an exceptional job! She was extremely professional, thoughtful, easy to work with, and hands on! Lacy communicated almost immediately during this process, she was very present and followed up on any and every issue. Our close was on time without any delays and this was definitely a result of Lacy’s ability to constantly communicate and make sure everything was in order, she made us feel like we were her only clients!!! Lol.. My wife and I love our new Condo and working with Lacy has been an absolute pleasure! We recommend her hands down! She’s the best!!! Thank you, so much! The Farmer Family!!!!

Sherry did an excellent job. Very receptive to our wishes. Executed everything quickly.
15:56 28 Feb 21
We were buying remotely out of state. We asked Sheri Matthews to video at least 10 homes. Sheri not only videotaped the homes, but the quality of video was excellent and we got them in less than 24 hours. These homes were all over the place and Sheri didn’t hesitate! Although we did not purchase one home she videotaped, when we arrived in town and found the right home Sheri was there to help with it all! It was easy! We highly recommend Sheri and Astra Realty!- Brian and Rhonda McKinney- McKinney, TX

Roger Story is very friendly, personable, and easy to work with. He puts all those around him at ease and makes the home buying process far less stressful. He is a great listener with an excellent response time and is very interested in what the buyer wants and needs in a new home. He is straightforward and a good communicator who will be sure your interests are well represented and a fair deal is made for all!
00:39 11 Feb 21
Roger Story is one of the most professional Realtor's in the industry. He is honest, attentive and listened to our goals and needs and has so much enthusiasm. I would highly recommend Roger Story, and I am glad to take the time to provide a well deserved review.Maurine and Danny Smith

I had a great time speaking with Mitch about the local housing market. He was very knowlegeable about the area, and provided lots of great information. I will be happy to use him the next time we are in the market!
19:53 29 Dec 20
Sheri Matthews was our realtor we chose to help sell our ranch. She was very easy going and helped us make lots of big as well as little decisions along the way. She gave great advice during the showing of our home and was a super adviser during the selling process. I can’t say enough about how sweet and concerned she was for our children during this stressful process for our family. I would gladly recommend her to anyone looking to sell their home! She was great!
15:09 18 Dec 20
Lacy Zhilman from Astra Realty was an absolute delight to work with when buying our home and we can't recommend her highly enough! My wife and I were first time homebuyers and we even initially reached out to Lacy about a year before we were even ready to actively look. Starting from that point through closing on the house, all communications were extremely speedy and always met with a cheery demeanor. She helped guide us through a nerve racking experience in an exceptionally nerve racking year of 2020. We're extremely grateful to have had such a wonderful agent on our side throughout!
04:53 14 Dec 20
Lacy Zihlman was incredible to work with. She Is smart, professional, caring, honest and aggressive in the right way. She was looking out for our best interests. Lacy helped my family buy a house we did not think was possible. She took care of absolutely everything and guided us through this multiple offer listing and made it happen. We thank you so much!!
23:49 07 Oct 20
My husband and I cannot stop telling everyone how wonderful and easy Lacy Zihlman made the house buying process! She had great communication from the start, always making sure we understood everything and she genuinely cared that we found our dream home. I am recommending Astra to everyone I know here in Texas! Thank you Lacy for everything you do... you're wonder woman!!!
00:01 07 Oct 20
We moved into Texas from out of state and Steve and Leslie were more than amazing. Any move is stressful, and moving from out of state and not knowing the area well makes things exponentially worse. Steve and Leslie went out of their way to ease our minds on the purchase of our home. They kept us abreast of everything going on and helped put us in touch with other professionals to assist in getting work done for the house. I could not be happier with Astra and we have made friends for life in Steve and Leslie. They treat you like family and make the entire process easy.
22:30 30 Sep 20
Lindsay Harrell was AMAZING during the sale of our home. We had to get our house ready for showings in less than a week, but she made a very stressful busy week easy and problem free. She was insightful and professional, and she really helped us navigate the sale of our home and the purchase of our new home. Lindsay made the whole process easy and stress free! She made us feel like we were her only clients-always available for any questions that we had and went above and beyond every step of the way to help us! She is truly the reason we are in our dream home! Without her I do not think we would have ended up in our amazing home. I would highly recommend Lindsay to anyone looking for a knowledgeable realtor-you will NOT be disappointed!!
02:24 26 Aug 20
We absolutely loved our experience with Lacy at Astra Realty. She made the process easy and seamless. Selling and building a home can be stressful, but Lacy is super reassuring and makes sure her clients feel good along the way. She sold our home in 13 days and guided us through the closing process. Would definitely recommend Lacy if you are looking for a realtor.
14:37 25 Aug 20
Sheri Matthews is amazing to say the least! She is patient and works hard to find you the perfect home for you and your family. Not to mention she is professional and just awesome to work with. I would recommend her to anyone that wants a great buying experience!!!
14:24 25 Aug 20
We can't say enough about our experience with Sheri Matthews! She not only helped us find a temporary home when we were living out of town she was also with us every step of the way while we built our new home! She is not only professional but really cares about making the buying process smooth and ensuring you find exactly what you are looking for.We recommend her to everyone we know and even people we don't know! hahaha She really is that good!
19:38 17 Aug 20
We recently purchased a home in Texas, while living in CA. Lacy was the best! She sold my son and his wife their home in Texas (also while they were in CA). She personally went to the property and FaceTimed them while she did a walk through. Lacy is easy going, very professional and got things done in a very timely manner, we closed in 30 days even though we are 3 states apart, during COVID-19, now that’s unprecedented. If we had a question about the home or process she either told us then or did her research and got back to us that day or the next; we didn’t have to remind her or do a follow-up.
18:37 26 Jul 20
We recently moved from out of state and Steven was very helpful. He was very attentive to detail and looked into everything for us. We were worried since we had to deal with the time difference, but he got back to us right away every single time. He listened to all our needs and wants and got us the house that fit us well. It was a great experience working with him.
01:25 15 Jul 20
Kristi was an amazing Realtor. She made the entire experience a joy and easy as can be. Her knowledge and creativity even during a pandemic were the driving factors for our home selling so quickly. Her negotiating skills and relationships with other agents and companies led to us getting the right price in todays market. We were thrilled with the entire experience!
23:39 06 Jul 20
Our experience with Sheri Matthews and Astra Realty was absolutely the best we could hope for when we selected this company to represent us for the sale of our home as well as the purchase of our new home. We interviewed three different realtors and we had an instant connection with Sheri. She was friendly, outgoing and very knowledgeable about the real estate selling and buying process. She showed us the way that Astra represents the seller by using social media (more than just Zillow or MLS) to get exposure of our home to people who were in the market to buy. Their process goes beyond what most real estate companies do. We were very impressed by the way they work together and support each other. From the time we agreed to enlist her services, she walked us through each step of the way, from preparing the house to sell, getting ready for pictures and a video walk through as well as the open house we did and the showings we had. She guided us through one of the most stressful events a person can go through and she did it all with encouragement balanced with wisdom and an occasional, but well spoken dose of reality when we needed it. During the time of the Covid shut down she encouraged us and guided us through it and was always available to answer our many questions. From the first day we met her to interview her to the end of the process at the closing table, we felt like she went from someone who was helping us sell our house to becoing a friend! If for some reason we should need to sell again, Sheri will be the first person we call. Thank you Sheri for all you did. We could not have done this without you!
03:47 05 Jun 20
Lindsay Harrell is such a pleasure to work with. She listened to our specific needs and wants. She was spot on in selecting appropriate homes for us to review. She never pushed us out of our budget. She was always available.We appreciate her patience and knowledge of the market. She fought for us during the negotiations and never had a negative word. She always supported our decisions. We learned a lot working with Lindsay!
14:13 04 Jun 20
We could not be happier that we went with Astra to find our home. Sheri, our agent, became more of a friend throughout the whole house hunting process. Her professionalism, preparedness, and knowledge was what we liked the most. She was always available to answer all our questions and went above and beyond to help us out wherever we needed it. So I'm so happy that she became part of this process with us. Buying a home is a huge personal and financial decision and choosing Astra Realty definitely made it all worthwhile. Keep up the great work you guys!!
21:32 29 May 20
Leslie was great and a true professional, she helped us with entire process during a very tough time for our family. Thank you!
16:32 20 Apr 20
I had the pleasure of working with Sheri Matthews while I was in new home sales. She was an absolute rock star and was very knowledgeable. Her clients were thrilled and so was I. I cannot recommend Astra and Sheri enough!
16:56 13 Apr 20
Lacy was a joy to work with! She educated us on home buying before, during and after our purchase. Lacy was always available for us by phone, text and email. I would definitely recommend Astra Realty.
00:07 08 Apr 20
Lacy was a great realtor for my family. She let us take our time, both in fixing our search criteria just so and then going out looking at houses. She never rushed us to make a decision, and she never pressured us to raise our budget. Hopefully it will be a while before we need her services again, but I would absolutely work with her again.
23:33 25 Mar 20
Lacy is the best agent I've had the pleasure of working with. I’m so grateful to her for her hard work selling our house quickly, her very quick response to every question, her meticulous attention to detail, and all her advice with the sale. Honestly don't think the sale would of gone through without her.

Astra Realty is by far the best group of ladies that I've worked with in realty. I believe my agent Lacy was an angel sent to help me with a very difficult process. I recently had a very disappointing experience and was not always the best client to work with. Well she was not bothered by that. She was very patient and honored every request that I made. She was always available to answer questions and provided daily reports on progress or lack there of. I know she had other clients, but you wouldn't know it because I was made to feel that my sell was her top priority.Oh , and she knows her stuff!
20:10 18 Mar 20
Lacy is my agent and she is absolutely phenomenal! She is very knowledgeable about the market as well as potential buyers. She keeps me informed about every aspect of the buying and selling process. Not only did she help me sell my house, she also worked with me on finding a new location with a very short timeline. She also continues to provide opportunities on investment property. And if all of that is not enough, she and her broker Leslie took time out of their busy schedule to support the less fortunate members in our community by participating in local fundraising efforts. Great realtors...Great people.Astra Realty is top notch. If you are in the market, give them a call. You will be happy you did.
22:39 18 Feb 20
From my first contact with this agency, I was greeted with enthusiasm and ensured that I would be provided the best service to get my mom's property sold. As out-of-state home owners, my mom and I shared concerns on understanding the comparable market values, making sure we had proper supervision for vendors and house remodeling, and finally trusting that the property would be in the right hands. Leslie connected us to SHERI MATTHEWS, and Sheri handled the job from start to finish with tenacity, patience and grit. Sheri dealt with various issues requiring immediate house repair and remediation of house value from a prior tenant/agent agreement. While we were on different time zones and some challenges came up over the listing, Sheri worked through the issues and she made herself available and communicated openly via WhatsApp, email and text. In the end, despite my own doubts about the property and the market signals, Sheri got the house sold at a very reasonable price and within the timeframe we desired -- she's a reliable and trustworthy agent and you'll be thankful for her help each step of the way!
23:38 31 Jan 20
Lacy helped my husband and I find a home here in TX and facilitate a move from a different state. She was there at a moments notice with any questions we had and never hesitated to help us in any way she could. We bought our home sight unseen and we were able to trust her opinion of the home 100%. We managed to beat out eight other offers the first day it came on the market, all thanks to Lacy’s diligence and hard work. I couldn’t recommend her more 🙂
15:43 27 Jan 20
Leslie and her team are consummate pros. They have incredible knowledge, work hard and truly care for their clients. Buying a home is typically the largest transactions one can have. You need trusted and reliable partners to guide you through the process and get you to the finish line. Look now further than this group. Call them today if you have a home to sell or if you need someone to help you find that perfect house!
19:12 08 Jan 20
Leslie Remy was referred to me several years ago through a friend. In all the referrals I have received, this was the best. Leslie is maticulosu in everything that she does. She got us top dollar, not once, but twice on a home that we sold. While building a home, she was there whenever we needed her. She will advocate for you on anything, and is not afraid! She has build Astra Realty from the ground up and it is totally attributed to her work ethic and mentality. I wish there was a 5+ rating!
02:14 20 Dec 19
Working with Astra realty was the best experience ever. As a first time home buyer, Lacey our realtor made buying a home so easy. We love the personalized experience provided by Lacey of Astra realty definitely appreciated the guidance given to us. We were able to get the house we truly wanted to buy for a great deal. We’d recommend Astra Realty to anyone who is interested in working with a realty company that is trust worthy and ensures their clients have an exceptional experience in buying a house to call a home. We thank you Astra and thank you Lacey! Even now, months after we purchased our house Astra keeps in contact with us to check in. Highly recommended to those seeking realtors that out your interests in the biggest investment one can have- buying a house.
02:53 14 Oct 19
Lacy was very helpful in making this as smooth as possible for our family. So grateful and pleased with the outcome. Thank you!

We closed on our new home recently, and I wanted to share some of the details of our selling and building process, and the AMAZING job that Leslie and her team at Astra Realty did for us.First, Leslie worked with us as we shopped for a builder, and was instrumental in us getting additional discounts, design center dollars, and competitive financing. Leslie knew all of the right questions to ask, and wasn't hesitant to stand up for us, her clients.Second, we put our existing home on the market in March of this year, which turned out to be a terrible time to sell--existing home sales in our area were down by as much as 40% from 2018. Leslie arranged for us to work with a staging and organization expert (think "Kondo method" on steroids--if it doesn't bring you joy, get rid of it!). She hooked us up with a fantastic paint crew, cleaners, flooring people, and staging experts.Leslie and team worked tirelessly and with incredible patience and empathy to hold open house sessions, to keep our info current in Zillow and other listings, and pushed out our info to local realtor and social media sites constantly.More important, Leslie handled two VERY nervous clients, made herself available to seemingly hundreds of questions, and always knew the right thing to say when we needed a little confidence boost.Leslie and team worked with us all the way through closing on our existing home. Her work helped identify the perfect buyers, and she did everything from coordinating inspections and work on the home, to doing everything to make the sale of our existing home as painless and perfect as it could be. Last minute hiccups, changes, re-scheduling issues, unusual questions from the buyer and from us, Leslie NEVER lost stride. The level of confidence we had in her and in Astra can't be understated, Leslie maintained calm in the middle of any storm, treated everyone professionally and with a personal touch, and somehow managed to keep seemingly hundreds of details straight and never missed a beat.We finally closed on our new home, using movers and cleaners that Leslie and team lined up. The closing was perfect, Astra's extra efforts before closing made it quick and easy, and we had a level of comfort that we'd never have expected because every "i" had been dotted, and every "t" had been crossed by their team.At our closing, Leslie gave us a very personalized housewarming gift and said that she was truly grateful for having had the opportunity to "go on this journey with you." And that's really what it was for us. Without her guidance, expertise, strong negotiation skills, and true empathy and caring for her "client family," there's no way we would have survived the process. We are so very grateful that Leslie and team were in our corner!If you're a first-time buyer, or buying your fifth home, PLEASE do yourself a huge favor and talk to Leslie and Astra. In return, you'll get an amazing team who is more concerned with you finding your dream home and having a wonderful experience than with collecting a commission check. Thank you Leslie for everything!
21:24 06 Sep 19
Buying a house can be stressful, but Lacy worked extremely hard to make things as simple as possible. She kept me up to date and truly had my best interests in mind throughout the process. Would definitely recommend her and Astra Realty.

Lindsay Harrell was recommended to me by a friend of mine and we couldn’t be happier with the results. We needed to sell our house for an out of state move and the timing to hit the market was tricky but she was on top of it the entire way. Lindsay really paid attention to the the smallest of details, arranged our showing to look its best possible, and even coordinated with us on sales leads when we were out of the country. And she is a caring and quality person and takes an interest in you as people, not just as clients. That is a rare combination in the business world and we enjoyed working with her (as much as you can when selling a house and moving and all....)! Greg and Sandy Hays
19:52 02 May 19
Astra Realty has an amazing team! Leslie is so helpful and communicates throughout the process. You couldn't ask for a better team to work with!
23:40 15 Apr 19
Sheri was AWESOME! Sheri is extremely responsive and we felt very informed throughout the entire selling process. She is very knowledgeable and professional. She made us a personalized video and website to sell our property fast. If you’re looking for a realtor in Texas I HIGHLY recommend Sheri Matthews.
13:42 10 Apr 19
Sheri Matthews of Astra is the best. She is very professional and has the best interest of us in mind. After crisscrossing many north Dallas areas, from Park cities, to Farmer Branches and Addison, she helped us the townhome that we love. Thanks Sheri. 🙂
04:11 10 Apr 19
Lindsay helped us through the process of selling our home, and through it all she was detailed, knowledgeable, responsive, and professional. As a bonus, Lindsay has vetted some excellent contacts for home inspections and repairs. Selling a home can be an ordeal, but Lindsay helped to make the entire experience smooth for our family. Thank you, Lindsay!!
18:58 26 Mar 19
We absolutely loved working with Lindsay Harrell! She was so professional, sweet, and helpful! We moved from out of state and she was so knowledgeable about all of the different North DFW areas we were interested in. She took so much time to explain the pros and cons of different areas and even different housing developments to help us make a wonderful informed decision. She did video walk throughs for us so we could get some ideas on houses we were interested in before coming out to Texas. She took time with us, was so personable, and a wonderful realtor. We recommended her to both of our families as well and they had great experiences. If you ever need a realtor definitely use Lindsay.
17:39 25 Mar 19
Lindsay,Thank you so much for such a great job with the sale of our home and finding us another! This was our first experience selling or buying a home and you made it so easy. You were so knowledgeable and really helped us to understand the whole process easily. You were professional and very attentive. We had to close on both houses on the same day, which normally would have stressed us out, but we knew we could rely on you to make it as smooth as possible. It could have been very overwhelming for us but you really helped us feel at ease. We would HIGHLY recommend you to any friends or family who are even thinking about starting the process! Thank you for being such a blessing to us during this important time in our lives. We really appreciate all of your dedication!Thanks again!~The Schwertner Family
22:54 14 Mar 19
I can’t say enough good things about working with Lindsay! I was selling and buying a home at the same time and had the pleasure of working with Lindsay on both. Lindsay knew I was looking for my forever home and found it right away based on the few things I told her I was looking for. And by right away, I mean the first house she showed me! Not only is Lindsay extremely knowledgeable, she was always available to answer all of my questions and there were a lot. She also knows the community very well and was able to make recommendations based on my needs. It was a stressful time and Lindsay made it easy because she is so patient and kind. On the selling side, Lindsay staged my home beautifully without breaking the bank and made easily doable recommendations to enhance the curb appeal of my home. I felt that Lindsay was fighting for my best interest at all times and got the best price for me on both transactions. I was lucky to have had the pleasure of working with a savvy realtor who has empathy, who is friendly, and puts her clients first.
17:44 07 Feb 19
Sheri was recommended to us for our home search. It was the best decision yet! She went above and beyond to assist us as we had just a week to find a home. We were moving here from New York and time was short and she made the best of it. We were able to find a home and sign a contract before we left for our return flight back to NY. Sheri stayed in constant contact with us even after we flew back home. She kept us apprised of the entire process step by step.Sheri is very knowledgeable and organized and very intent on making sure we were taken of. We can't say enough. A most professional person. Thank you so much Sheri! You made our transition easier!
22:16 09 Oct 18
Lacy was amazing to work with!! This group does everything top notch, even their for sale signs are a step above the rest. Lacy is very knowledgeable, creative, focused and became a good friend in the process.
16:11 16 Jul 18
Best house buying experience I have had! Sherri was amazing! I love her energy and the knowledge she provided! If I ever buy another house I will definitely go through her! She even works when she is not suppose to be working!! I also loved the teamwork they have at this place. When Sherri had some personal things come up Leslie stepped in and made the closing process smooth! Thank you Astra Reality for helping me get my first home!
21:05 26 Jan 18
Leslie is amazing. She guided us during the whole staging process. She directed a professional photographer to take stunning pictures of the home. She created a dream listing that made the house just sparkle. Her knowledge and experience helped us come up with a price point that maximized our home’s potential. And all of that expertise resulted in a contract, which ultimately closed, that arrived within 24 hours of our listing going live. During the next several weeks Leslie kept an eye on the whole process and helped us avoid a potentially deal crushing mistake made by the buyer’s lender. Leslie will always be my “go to” agent for now and ever more.
21:57 16 Dec 17
Leslie Remy and her team at Astra Realty are a first class group of real estate professionals. They work tirelessly to provide exceptional customer service and expert market analysis for all of their clients. As a General Contractor who has worked closely with Leslie, I’ve witnessed first hand the level of trust her clients have with her and that makes her an asset to anyone in the market to buy or sell a home.
12:45 06 Nov 17
I know that 5 stars across the board may seem like I rushed through this review without thinking. However, the opposite is actually true. I really considered the details of our deal in this evaluation.Leslie was amazing. She made appropriate recommendations on staging my home. She negotiated the best deal (WELL over our asking price!)Leslie responds to questions well above my expectations -Even while on her personal family time. (I would never have expected that! )Leslie is amazing. I fully recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!
20:52 14 Oct 17
Leslie, and the entire Astra Realty team is top notch!! Not one detail or aspect of the process was overlooked. Each and every question was answered promptly. Even with our tight deadlines, Leslie helped us buy and sell, with so much grace and ease! Leslie is the perfect realtor to help you find exactly what you are looking for in a home!!!
22:17 11 May 17
Leslie has the midas touch! Detailed listings, personalized attention, and fantastic photos/video tour...what more could you possibly need? We were estatically pleased with how she handled everything and would encourage anyone who is looking to buy/sell a home have Leslie be your guide!
18:49 04 May 17
Amazing. You can not get a better Realtor in the North Texas area. She is knowledgeable, caring and kind.
18:51 26 Jan 17
We had a wonderful experience working with Leslie at Astra Realty. As first time home buyers all our questions were answered and our minds put at ease. Leslie is friendly, knowledgeable and we would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
21:42 09 Jan 17
Hands down the best in the business for all of your real estate needs. If your thinking of buying or selling a home please do yourself a favor and let Leslie and her team at Astra reality take care of all your needs.
