    My Client Testimonials

    Koni was always very quick to respond to our inquiries or concerns. She was professional, very knowledgeable, confident, and attentive. I would have no hesitation to use or recommend her again! She far exceeded all my expectations. ~ Tom Bruce, Sulphur, LA
    Koni is the most thoughtful and caring agent there is. She takes time and consideration to the buyer like non other. She isn't going to push you into a sale as she genuinely cares about the buyer making the right decisions for themselves. ~ Stephen Vidrine, Lake Charles
    KONI BRIDGES WAS NOTHING SHORT OF AMAZING AND EASY TO WORK WITH. With Koni it was not just about selling the home but what was best for our family as well. ~ Mickey Smith Jr. West Palm Beach, FL
    We highly recommend Koni Bridges for your real estate needs. She truly treats you like family and goes above and beyond in every detail of the experience. We had to clear my deceased grandmother¿s name from title on a property transaction and we live out of town. She found answers for us and put us in connection with just the right people who could help us sort the legalities out. She handled the entire process in such a loving and caring way for my family. She really was a comfort to my grandpa in some sensitive moments and made the process smooth for him. She was even able to connect us with a title company that worked out of Lake Charles and Lafayette where we live. We were able to close in Lafayette. Mrs. Koni actually surprised us and drove all the way to Lafayette to be here in person for our closing. That meant so much to us. With Mrs. Koni, you are in the best of hands! ~ Frank and Sarah Courmier, Westlake and Lafayette, LA
    Koni is the best. I've used her before and will continue to do so. Give her a raise! Koni knows the area and does electronic documents so I can do it from home in my underware and not have to drive anywhere. She's a true asset you century 21. Give this girl a raise already! ~ Cory Cochran - Westlake LA
    I wanted someone who has a reputation of honest, caring, and knowledgeable with the area. I found that in Koni Bridges. It was such a pleasure to have Koni Bridges guide me through the selling of my sister's house. After the inspection was done and there were a few things that needed to be repaired, Koni worked with me to find someone that could do the work. She also worked with the contractor and KJon so everything would be completed in a timely manner. It was a hard thing to sell a home I was raised in and had a life time of memories. Koni with her compassion and willingness to go the extra mile made this a good experience. ~ Mary Turner Westlake, La
    Koni is the best! She guided us throughout the process with thoughtful presentation of each of the issues before us. She communicated with us just the right amount and always at the perfect time. ~ Ollie Johnson, Lake Charles
    I would highly recommend Koni Bridges and Century 21 Bessette Realty for your home buying or selling needs.

    I would definitely recommend Koni Bridges to help you with all your real estate needs. She will listen to what you want &/or need and will help you achieve your goals in the process.

She made our purchase less stressful on us because she was our voice in negotiating the purchase of our first home. ~ Susan & David Busby

    Ive known Koni Bridges for many years. I spoke to her on the phone before we moved back to Lake Charles. Her knowledge of the real estate market was evident from the start. She assisted in coordinating the closing of our home here in Graywood with the closing of our home in the Dallas area. Koni was always very professional, attentive & helpful. She made purchasing a home, while living in another state, stress free. Koni had to stand in for us, since we were moving from Texas on the day of our closing in Lake Charles. She did the walk thru for us via FaceTime. Weve moved 4 times in our 17 yrs of marriage, I would rate Koni as our best realtor experience in buying a home. ~ Lisa Hebert Woods, Graywood Lake Charles
    I've used her before and will continue to do so. She always goes out if her way to get things done quickly. She needs a raise! Everything went great. Give this girl a raise already! ~ Cory Cochran, westlake, LA
    We loved working with Koni! She helped us understand everything about our perchases and wanted us to find the perfect home for us. She never pushed anything on us and the choices we made were always ours! She was great at communicating (even late at night when we shouldnt have been asking her questions.) She was very organized and on top of every aspect. We would recommend working with Koni! ~ Jenny Torres, Sulphur
    Ms. Koni was recommended by one of my wife's coworkers. we didn't know where to begin in the home-buying process. We are absolutely thankful that Ms. Koni was introduced to us. We were comfortable and confident because Ms. Koni was with us every step of the way. My wife is extremely picky!!! Ms. Koni never hesitated to show us a property, even if she knew deep down inside that my wife would not like it. She showed us a multitude of properties so that we could take a little from all of these properties, see what we liked, and ultimately find our dream home!! Ms. Koni had an emergency and couldn't make it to our closing, but the lady who sat in Ms. Koni's place was extremely helpful in explaining anything that we had questions about during the closing. It was a long and tedious process, but Ms. Koni was there reassuring us every step of the way. When we buy again in the future, I hope Ms. Koni is still working because we would definitely use her again!! Ms. Koni, you were amazing to us, and it is my absolute privilege to be able to fill out this survey and let everyone know what a wonderful job you do! You are amazing and we are glad to be able to say we know you! ~ Nicholas Marks, Lake Charles
    Koni Bridges was so helpful in our search for property and represented us very well with negotiations. She is very conscientious of the needs and does her very best to insure a perfect and smooth experience. We would definitely ask her to handle our future needs with no hesitation because of her honesty and attention to details. ~ Greg and Kim Hasenbein Lake Charles La
    Have known Koni Bridges as a person for many decades and know her to be a compassionate intelligent person whom I trust, and has good work ethic. I knew she would keep me focused on the tangible factors associated with the business of selling my home. That was very important to me. Koni Bridges was very respectful for my limited available time regarding the sell of my home. She also was helpful to the buyers to make sure they knew they were investing in a quality piece of real estate. I was never pressured into greed or hurried to make a sale. I was treated with utmost respect and patience throughout the entire sales process. Koni Bridges kept me up to date daily on all aspects of promoting the sell of my home. She was a great asset in assisting me in cleaning, repairs, and presentation to prospective buyers. I could not have asked more from her. Koni's supervisors and co-workers were very helpful in decision making and direction throughout the entire process of selling my home. ~ Dr. Mike Branch, Lake Charles, LA
    Mrs. Koni was amazing in all aspects. She was very involved in every part of the process and made everything a smooth transition from start to finish. I would definitely recommend anyone to Mrs. Koni and was happy that she was able to help us with our sale. ~ Jessica - Westlake, LA
    Having used Koni with a previous selling of two homes, as well as my daughter and her husband using her, there wasn't any another choice for me. Koni doesn't push, she guides and informs you and more importantly was there for me every step of the way. She knew my current situation and why moving back to Sulphur was a priority for me. She always sent me short text messages, reassuring me all would be OK and trusting her explicitly, it all did! I would recommend her, and have, to others who I know are searching for a new home or relocating for various reasons. I rated her performance with all excellent scores because she's truly the best of the best in my book! I was dealing with much more than buying a home.....my 90 year old Mother being very demanding at times, Koni made time and worked around my schedule when we could meet. She explained everything, more than once, because with everything else on my plate...there were times I just didn't quite understand the process. I always knew she was looking after/taking care of me during the entire process. ~ Dianne Dronet, Sulphur, La.
    I am so thankful for your help in the sale of both homes without a short period of time. Thanks so much for taking care of me, step by step, and assuring me everything would be ok. I was going through an awful lot in my personal life....you took that worry and stress away. Love you Koni Bridges! PS. IF I ever move again.....you're the first one I'm calling. ~ Dianne Dronet, Sulphur, La

    Koni Bridges is the bomb!!! Our home search and purchase was a bit of a challenge- from broken legs to squawking birds to unexpected, frustratingdelays-but Koni was patient and determined from day one until closing, and she still checks on us after the fact! Love this lady and can't recommend her highly enough! ~ Chris and Bud, Lake Charles
    Mrs. Koni was great. She had a world of patience with me even when I didnt have it for myself! Absolutely amazing realtor and would use her again. She got my kids and I in the perfect home and I cant thank her enough! ~ Sarah, Carlyss, LA
    I've known Koni for a while and when I saw she became a realtor, I knew I would use her. She couldn't have done anything better. She was quick to answer any questions and knew what she was talking about. Very professional. One of the nicest people you will meet. I will be using her for all my real estate needs. Keep up the good work! ~ Cory Cochran - Westlake, LA
    My fiancé and I met Koni at an open house that we looked at in Westlake. We had been to many open houses previously and dealt with many other realtors (some Century 21, some other companies). She was extremely kind and had an answer for every question we asked her. She was very professional and knowledgeable to complement her positive and outgoing attitude. We knew that she was going to be our realtor a few minutes after meeting her. I am a first time home buyer who knew almost nothing about all of the ins and outs of buying a house. Koni walked me through every step of the way and it was a breeze. She pays great attention to detail, helped me with negotiating and contracts, and connected me with an inspector. ~ Ryan in Westlake
    We used 2 other agents prior to Koni and had bad experiences with them. Koni renewed my perception in agents. She was a blessing to us. Koni is really helpful and understanding to the needs of her client. Never dealt with any others from her office because she had the resources and support needed to assist us. ~ Chad S., Westlake
    Koni B Bridges was a great realtor and I would highly recommend her. She was very attentive and responsive to my needs in a timely manner through the whole process. Communication between the seller and I, through Koni, was very quick and efficient. I work nights and she was available for me to contact very early and late during the process. I never had any problems with her as my realtor. ~ Alexis Naquin, Sulphur
    I didn't know where to begin in finding a broker until my sister called Century 21 and we spoke with Koni that is when our journey begin and I was grateful to find such a wonderful person that helped me and my wife in purchasing our first home. We will never forget her. Rise high Koni Bridges and touch the sky you are one in a million ~ Christopher & Shelia Mayo Lake Charles La
    Mrs. Koni was very friendly, patient and helpful. She made sure we were comfortable with every decision we had to make. She was with us every step of the way and we are so grateful for that. She is the best!!!! ~ Marvette and Lavenya Williams, Iowa, La.
