This is our second move with Steve and Leslie, and we could not be happier. We sold our home during a downtime and went through some struggles with contracts falling through. Leslie and her team never stopped working and going above and beyond to find the right buyer for our home. Her and Steve walked us through the buying process with a new construction and worked hand in hand with the builder to ensure the house was how it should be and fought to get us everything we wanted.We truly cannot thank them enough for all they did and we would not have the home we always dreamed of without their help and hard work. I don’t think there is another agent out there that works harder for her clients than Leslie. We cannot recommend them enough!

Dyan Thomas gets very high marks on all aspects of representation. She is knowledgeable, diligent, responsive, supportive, honest, and efficient. I have been through the process of buying or selling property at least 15 times in three states so I have some basis for comparison to other realtors. Many realtors are quite good, while some only talk a good game. Dyan knows real estate. She routinely and promptly responded to texts or emails at night or on weekends. I have practiced law for 45 years in Alaska and been involved in many real estate transactions so I understand the process, documentation, strategies, etc., yet there were times when Dyan provided input I deemed wise and reconsidered my initial thoughts. We made it from listing date to closing date in 21 days on a house we sold. That is not normal, and Dyan (or any realtor) cannot be expected to deliver that swiftly on most transactions, but you can expect a capable realtor who has your best interests in mind. I give an unqualified recommendation to retain Dyan and Astra Realty.

Selling a home you lived in for 20 years is not easy on multiple levels, but Dyan was steady, supportive and understanding throughout the process. She helped make our transition easier than I thought possible. I can not thank her and her team enough for the countless hours of work and attention to detail. I truly believe this attention to detail helped bring top dollar for a home we treasured. Thank you, Dyan!

Joan is the best real estate agent we’ve ever had. And she facilitated are buying experience with Grace. She provided practical counsel for us to consider in our buying experience. We began working with her in mid September and closed on our home by the end of October, Astra Realty has a real asset in Joan.

Dyan is very sincere and always has your best interest in mind.What sets her apart is that her focus is on getting you the house you want, not on selling you one. Because she takes the time to understand what you're looking for, she doesn't waste your time marketing useless information to you like other agents.She worked with me for over half a year to find the house I wanted. Then went out of her way to ensure my success in acquiring it. Thank you!

Leslie with Astra Realty was our realtor on a new home build in 2021-2022. She was with us every step of the way. She recommended our finance/ mortgage consultant, our appraiser and anything else we needed along the way. We highly recommend Leslie, she works hard for her clients and truly cares. She even helped us by pulling comps when we needed to dispute our property taxes, and this was way after we had closed and was done with the buying part- in other words, she has worked beyond the "final" sale for us!

We loved working with Leslie! She was accessible with answering our questions in an appropriate amount of time, treated us like family, and advocated for us when something happened negatively with out builder while our house was being built. She has continued to keep up with our family even after we have lived in our house the past 4 years. We feel like truly valued clients and I know that we will be taken care of in the future for our real estate needs with her!

My wife and I have had the privilege of working with Leslie Remy for multiple years. Leslie has guided us in many decisions regarding taxes, locations to purchase new construction, re-sales, and data about school districts; as well as expected future retail in areas. I like Leslie because she is not a “quick sale” real estate agent, and she knows her stuff (and is very HUMBLE about it). I like that she vets her mortgage loan officers and only chooses to work with mortgage professional that are interested in RELATIONSHIPS and not how much money they can make on a loan. Leslie thank you for your continued support and for answering every single one of our emails!

My realtor Mitch was great! I couldn’t have asked for a better realtor. He is very knowledgeable, patient and professional. He listens to his clients and finds the right house for you. His customer service skills are hard to come by these days!
We were out of state buyers. Steve was excellent! Could not have done it without him. He helped us find our dream house 100% from outside TX, not easy but Steve was fantastic! He gave us so much guidance and advice and we're so happy to be settled!

Karen Cleveland was such a blessing to work with. We had a limited budget but also knew where we wanted to live. Karen worked tirelessly with us and the mortgage lender to make sure we had all the information we needed to make this happen. She was informative, encouraging and a true professional while also being a great listener and friend!! You would be well cared for working with Karen!!

Buying a new construction home can be quite intimidating and I'm happy that Joan went above and beyond to ensure this experience is as seamless as possible. She was very responsive, knowledgeable and resourceful during the entire process and that helped take a lot of pressure off my shoulder while I was dealing with other commitments at the time. I'm grateful to have an opportunity to work with her.
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!

Steve came through - AGAIN! Third house we have used Steve for in the last two years! He is always there whenever I have a question or crazy idea - quick to find listings and offer sound advice - even when I change directions twenty times. Never imagined I would own a home, much less be on the third one already! I think we'll keep this one for a while! Thanks Steve!

I had the pleasure of working with Karen and my family and I could not be more happy. I’m a newly single mom and was really nervous navigating the housing market on my own but Karen helped me every step of the way. Once it became clear renting was the best option for us she hit the ground running. We saw about 7 homes and put in an application on the first one we loved. Karen took the time to get to know my girls and I and was able to convey to the homeowners that we were the perfect fit! I know without a doubt her professionalism and trust in her gut of knowing the right combination found a perfect match in a renter and homeowner experience. I’ve been “home” for a month now and could not be more happy! Thanks Karen & Team!
We worked with the WONDERFUL Karen Cleveland. I have never in my life worked with an agent with the passion, energy and love she has for helping families find their home. She was available whenever I needed her and answered my questions in a timely matter. She made the buying and selling process a joy. If you are looking to buy or sell a home she is your person, she eased my anxiety through the entire process of selling and then turning around and buying a home days later. In case I forgot to mention. She is AMAZING!

Lacy Zihlman is by far the best agent. Being new to Texas, she was knowledgeable and helpful on items and tasks which are necessary when buying a home. She listened to me and my husband and was able to guide us through the buying process with skill and an ease which does not come easily to most. Her desire to not only find the right home, but to ensure her clients are 100% happy with the right purchase goes beyond just "making the sell". I feel Lacy really cares about her customers.

I highly recommend Astra Realty! Leslie has helped me with both the buying and selling process. She was there every step of the way! She is very knowledgeable, friendly, and organized! I will always trust Leslie when it comes to buying or selling a future home. Astra Realty is the best around!
We were making a move to Texas from out of state so I heavily relied on Sheri's guidance as to where the best areas were, schools, commute time etc. When I made a trip down to view homes, she cleared her entire weekend to show me the area and all the homes I was interested in. She had them lined up back to back and was super accommodating and willing to work with my schedule. When we communicated from remotely, she was always quick to respond, super knowledgeable and honest (which I very much appreciated!) Moving from Idaho, there were a lot of things we didn't know, but Sheri made sure to address all our concerns and she went to bat for us when needed. She gets high praise for a reason and we are super grateful we found her. Working with her remotely was a breeze. She made our out of state move so much easier because we knew if something came up she was on top of it! I can't thank her enough for helping us find the perfect home here in Texas. If we ever plan to move again, she will be my 1st call.

Everyone knows that moving is one of the most stressful things for a family to go through. Lacey literally made this a seamless and enjoyable process for us!!! Her professionalism and knowledge of the business was definitely worth her weight in gold!!! In this crazy market we had a lot of homes to choose from, and it all had to be done quickly and efficiently. Her advise helped us to finally end up in the home of our dreams!!

I had the opportunity to work with Mitch Hickey this past summer. I contracted with him for the sale of my house. Mitch is very knowledgeable of the housing market and the entire selling and closing process. He was with me every step of the way and negotiated an amazing offer. Mitch is responsive, communicative, and professional. I will definitely work with him in the future if I decide to buy or sell another property.

Mitch helped me find a rent house and did a fantastic job. He set up an automatic search that would send me updates as houses hit the market and I would send him the ones I wanted to check out. He was quick to reply and got me times to check out the houses whenever I was free. He also handled correspondence with the rent house realtors/landlords and got my questions answered. I’ve got a busy schedule and he took a lot of the stress out of the situation. All in all, would recommend for anyone looking for a place to live.

Lacy was our first contact with Astra Realty. I called her number after seeing it on a For Sale sign. She was caring and professional. She listened carefully to our story and needs, then shared our contact with Joan Meko. Joan is a member of the Astra team working rentals and purchases. We couldn't decide! She was by our sides from the first showing to closing. Joan was diligent in answering my daughter's first time home buyer questions and excited about her eventual purchase. Thanks Joan!
We are so glad that we met Lacy! Three years back she had helped us finding a rental house which we absolutely enjoyed living in.We had moved to another State and as we started our home search remotely, we couldn’t think of anyone else than Lacy. Being first-time home buyers, we were very stressed and overwhelmed due to the present market situation. Lacy guided us through this process as a mentor giving us valuable advice, patiently answering all our questions, and finding homes that met our needs.She took time to personally visit the surroundings of the City. She constantly communicated to make sure everything was going smoothly and on time. We love our new home!Lacy has been an absolute pleasure to work with. She is extremely professional, thoughtful,caring, and so easy to work with. Thank you so much Lacy! YOU ARE THE BEST!! We highly recommend Lacy and guarantee that you will not be disappointed.Venkata & Sunita

I would highly recommend Astra Realty if you are ever looking to buy or sell any property. They have been very responsive and have always made themselves available if we needed anything. We recently purchased our first home and couldn’t thank our realtor Steven enough. He made the whole process a breeze and gave us amazing tips along the way. Will be recommending Astra Realty to all my friends and family!

Leslie and her team at Astra Realty are truly the BEST! My family worked with her when we bought our first home in 2018 and when we sold it in 2021. I’m confident that we were able to buy and sell our home at the best possible prices because of the efficiency and expertise of the team. Leslie is a master negotiator and really knows all of the ins and outs of real estate. She explains all of the legal jargon in simple terms so you know exactly what you’re getting into. We were treated like family at Astra and I’m sure you will be too. Can’t recommend them enough!

Our realtor for buying a home was Roger Story. I cannot sing his praises loud enough. He was professional and knowledgeable, but the best part was his patience, kindness, positivity, and compassion. He made us feel like we were his only clients! I would recommend him very, very highly!

Let me first say this was no small undertaking for my wife and I in choosing a realtor or realty company to market our home. We live in a very unique neighborhood where home prices are likely the one of the highest per square foot of any place in McKinney. A little back story, our process actually began almost 18 months ago when we interviewed Leslie along with many other top realtors in the DFW area. We needed someone who not only brought expertise about the market and our area but also knowledge on what we could do to get top dollar for our house. Our situation was somewhat different then most due to the fact that our home was paid for and we were in no hurry to sell but both felt it was time for us to downsize as we are now empty nesters. Let me say that Leslie never came across as pushy or insistent on listing our home, nor did she ever leverage herself by talking down any other realtors we were considering. Leslie just listened and commented and offered a treasure trove of ideas to improve our position along with look and feel of our home. In the end, we decided to bring in her team to freshen up our home with paint, some newer fixtures, carpet and a staging professional by the name of Jeanette Campbell. It was a huge leap of faith for us to say the least. I’ll be the first to admit I often wondered what in the world I had gotten myself into but Leslie continued to assure me the changes would pay off and they did. We ended up getting about a 500% ROI on the money we invested. Furthermore, because we had no plans to immediately buy a new home she even brought in her furniture liquidator who sold most all of our furniture with out us having to hire movers or spend money on a storage facility. Lisa and I would highly recommend Leslie Remy and the Astra realty team if you are considering selling your home or if you are in the market to buy a new home.Denny & Lisa Denton

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.
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!

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%!
