My name is Sofia Dheming-Crews. I am a native of Honduras where I born in La Lima. I attended grade school until the age of 15 where I became fluent in both my native language Spanish and my second language English.I have a big family still to this day in Honduras. My parents decided to relocate to be closer to my older brothers in which they have moved here due to school scholarships. As soon as I landed I was treated like I had been here my whole life. The local people made my transition so easy and this is when I decided on being a realtor because it was an opportunity to give back to this wonderful city that has giving so much to me.
I attended Bonnabel high school in Kenner. I know going to the same school that some of my clients send there kids puts me in touch with the same values of my community. After I graduated of High school, I attended college, due to financial struggles I had a full time job as well. I worked as an Administrative Assistant and Payroll Clerk, where I developed my people skills and hard work ethic. I have always had jobs were I had the opportunity to work with number, until one of the jobs I had I worked for a corporate housing company in 2013 were we hosted the filming crew for the Superbowl XLVII. I saw my true passion as I enjoy servicing and showing the filming crew our beautiful city. In 2020 I serve as a program director for the WCR-Nola Chapter Also in the same year I was was nominated 2020 Max J. DERBES MERITORIOUS SERVICE AWARD. In 2022 served as a Community service chair with the Louisiana Hispanic Chamber of Commerce Young Proffesionals. Currently I am the Co-Chair Woman for the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce Young Professionals, I am also the Treasurer for WCR-NOLA CHAPTER. I have my CID, ABR, SRS, MRP, AHWD Designations. In 2023 I decided to open my own Brokerage name MAISON DE NOLA Realty, when I was looking at the name I though of my past, my present and future Maison is (Mansion en French) Nola in known for the French roots, (DE) Spanish, as a latina I didn’t wanted to lose my roots and (Nola) of course my hometown, I married here, I have my children here , here is were my “future” roots are. I am a die hard saints fan, I believe I bleed black and gold, and take any opportunity I can to cheer on and attend my favorite sports teams games our dog name is Drew Brees Crews. Over the years I have transformed into a true local and enjoy eating crawfish, shrimp and of course charbroiled oysters you can’t forget about the fabulous restaurants we have around here.
When I have free time I enjoy spending time with my family where we might decide to take a bike ride and see the beautiful lake or river.There are so many things to do in this area the options are endless.
When it was time for my husband and I to buy a house we had every opportunity to move where ever we wanted but ultimately we chose kenner because I love my roots and being able to help my community and surrounding areas. But our purchase and experience wasn’t the best, we went through so many struggles on buying our first home. That I saw the signs for me to become a realtor just because I saw the needs and how can I prevent other going through the same struggles we did.
There is a big misconception about realtors that all we do is help buy and sell houses. This couldn’t be any further from the truth. For me, personally I take every sale from start to finish as serious as if it was my own house. I like to help people out and my profession allows me that opportunity. I believe in do onto others as would want done to yourself. So if there was something that my clients should know before they make one of the biggest transactions in they're life Im going to tell them.
One of the things that I enjoy as a Realtor is to help our community to achieve the ultimate dream that is the "American Dream" to own a home. I also like to help our Military Families as a wife of a Marine Veteran I know first hand how overwhelming it can be to buy or sell a home due to relocation. My commitment to help is to go above and beyond to make the home buying or home selling experience as painless and smooth as possible. But at the end of the day the biggest reward I get is to see the smile from ear to ear on my clients faces. Remember the next time you are in need of a Realtor for your Real Estate needs to give me a call
