As the No. 1 Team in Baton Rouge, we bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. Our Team is eager to serve you. Here are some of the things we can do for you:

Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! Our buyer specialist, Stephanie Pierce, will work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home

Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. We take care of everything you need, from start to close.  Our 3P's to Selling Philosophy works - let us show you how to get you sold and onto where you are going!

Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. We can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.

"I too am thankful - for the help and expertise you provided in marketing the house at Fleet Dr. After spending over a year to restore the house and empty it of the VAST supply of personal effects, I was ready to have the sale behind me. Thanks to all of you for getting the job done - and done quickly!"

  -Mike, Client

"Brandon handled a property my mother owned in Baton Rouge for several years. After he became an agent, he handle the sale of her home in March of 2018. This note to you is long overdue! But, it was important to me to let you know what an outstanding job he did! He was so helpful and did a great job of communicating to me (I’m in Colorado). He was very professional and so personable at the same time. As an agent myself in Colorado Springs for 30 years, I certainly know what it takes to do an outstanding job….and that is exactly what Brandon did! You are fortunate to have him in your office! He’s the best! "

  -Kathy , Client

"Buying a new home is exciting, but also nerve-wracking...especially if the property needs a bit of work to make it perfect. Lucky for us we were assisted all the way by Brandon Baird of Keyfinders. New in the city, we would have been overwhelmed, but he went over and beyond: always available, sharing his expertise and contacts, and being so much more than "just" a realtor. Thank you Brandon! "

  -Tina & Ed, Client

I was given so much support in every detail. When I could not do a issue they were there to help. I also give God credit who gave the ability to all involved to accomplish this selling and buying process. You can rely, trust and have assurance with Jeffrey Welsh & Carol Poche' The Keyfinders Team."

Our home buying experience was great!"

Thank you for taking care of me and my family. I will always recommend you to anyone in search of a new home. Thank you Thank you Thank you."

  -Brady, Client

"We sold our house with Carol's help, living 3 hours away. While the process felt slower than what we would have liked, Carol's care, help with lining up repairs and yard work, as well as her coaching through the negotiation process got our house ready to sell and sold without multiple trips back and forth. She even sat at the house to wait for the gas to be turned on! All in all a smooth experience and would totally recommend her or use her again."

  -Christine, Client

"My wife and I could not have asked for a better experience from Jeff and Carol in this home buying journey. They took the time to help us make sure everything in our house up to par before putting it on the market and helped us find a new house that met what we’re looking for in a home. Jeff and Carol made every step smooth, from listing our home in Denham Springs to moving into our new home in Baton Rouge! They helped us coordinate a contractor to make repairs and updates to both homes, a home inspector, HVAC assessment team to make sure the AC was up to par,and made sure all of the little fixes that needed to be made in our new home were dealt with before closing. Jeff and Carol strive for excellence in every aspect of their job and stayed in constant contact with us to make sure we were up to date on any new changes. Thanks Jeff and Carol for helping the Potts family find our new home."

  -Potts, Client

"Many, many thanks! You took care of everything and held my hand the entire time. I would definitely recommend Keller Williams to anyone interested in selling a house easily and swiftly. "

  -Pat, Client

"We’ve had our Baton Rouge house since Hurricane Katrina in The Shires subdivision. The house is well built but needs updates. Carol and Jeffrey assisted us in every way. They were always available when we’d drive in from Metairie. Initially they advised us where attention to house was needed. Within a week we received an offer at listing price. Upon inspection Carol and Jeffrey coordinated the contractor to make repairs and at a very reasonable price. The Closing went smoothly as scheduled. We are very appreciative to the Carol and Jeffrey team and highly recommend to anyone planning to sell their property."

  -Joan, Client

"Couldn't have been a better experience. Thanks for all you and your team have done. Neal thanks for all your help. It definitely was a 10+++ experience."

  -Duane & Susan, Client

"This is the second time I have used The Keyfinders Team and I have not been disappointed. Carol and Jeffrey have put together a wonderful group of people who truly are a team. They all work together for the good of the client. When things don't go as anticipated, they are very encouraging and calming. They "stick with it" until its conclusion. I appreciate all their hard work. Thank you all!!!"

  -Debra, Client

  -Eric, Client

"Neal Francois is the best realtor in Baton Rouge and there are just no words to sufficiently describe how great of a job he did in helping my wife and I find our home. He is the best there is and is definitely a good fit if you are a younger homebuyer."

  -Samuel, Client

"I could not have asked for a more compassionate, hardworking, and responsive real estate professional than Jeffrey Welsh and his KeyFinders team. Be careful what you ask for...we met Jeffrey on January 19th and expressed our need to sell our home as soon as possible. The first offer was made within the first 2 weeks and the sale was closed on March 31st - above our asking price!"

  -Connie, Client

"Stephanie Pierce, First impression: Professional, very knowledgeable, and all of the above. She made the purchase of our home a wonderful experience, which normally is very stressful. She was there to answer every email, and text message and went above and beyond our expectations. In addition to her professionalism and all of the above, she treated us as a special friend and that is an important factor in choosing an agent. Stephanie answered every question we had, no matter how insignificant it was, and her patience was admirable. To sum up our experience I would say it was easy and fun from the beginning to the end. Hopefully this is our last move, but if we ever have to move again, there is not doubt that Stephanie would be our agent. "

  -Patricia and Pedro, Client

"Wonderful team. My house was flooded before we could get to act of sale and the buyers pulled out. Carol suggested we clean up and get house back on market. Had 2 offers same week, we closed 3 weeks later as an "as is" sale. Really needed everyone's support and guidance in the heat of the crisis."

  -JoAnn, Client

"As an investor who needs to move fast and for whom incremental margins are crucial, working with Carol and Jeffrey was a great match. They not only pushed to make a good deal great for me, they were great ushers on the process and quickly responded to issues and questions to meet my needs. One of the MOST valuable things to me as an investor is getting to discuss rent-ability, rent markets, desirability and enjoying great reconfiguration recommendations from both parts of this duo. Their combined EXPERIENCE IN PROPERTY MANAGEMENT and caring for their CLIENTS' PERSONAL GOALS' makes this a hard-to-beat value for buyers."

  -David, Client

"Carol and Jeffrey did a great job selling our house. Because of their experience and strategy, we had a lot of showings in short period of time. We had an offer on the house after a short 5 day period. They were very helpful during the negotiation process. I would recommend them anyone interested in selling their house."

  -Lisa, Client

"32 years my properties in Baker LA were managed by Keyfinders Realty. This team is superb. They managed my properties expertly. And when we flooded, the Keller Williams Realty group came in and sold my properties quickly and efficiently. I highly recommend them Carol Poche and Jeffery Welsh have been wonderful to us!"

  -Dr. Hirsch, Client

"Hands down the BEST realty team in Baton Rouge. I've used them twice both with buying and selling. The transactions were seamless, professional and they catered completely to my needs eliminating all hurdles along the way. I've worked with other realtors in the area and no one even comes close to providing the level of service that Jeffrey, Claire and Carol bring to the table. I will always goto them for my real estate needs whether I need them directly or as a reference. They have set the bar so high that I can't imagine having to work with anyone else."

  -Laura, Client

"I wanted to again say thanks again and say how much we appreciate ALL of your help with us selling our home. You've been such a blessing to both Emily and I and we just love you! You're such a strong woman who I can imagine has good days and bad days but know that you're still a rockstar in our eyes! I'm sure you will miss my phone calls, references to crown throughout and my own medication/therapy needs :) but I know our paths will cross again so you won't miss us that much! We also surely do appreciate your willingness to offer us the "brownine" rate in regards to selling our home, it's means a lot. Our new house is wonderful and we are just so excited about it has to offer once we put our touches on it. Thanks again to you and your incredible staff. You're the best!"

  -Logan, Client

"Mrs. Claire was the best agent I ever could expect. I think that God put me at the house that date. I was looking for a home for my brother to buy and I called Mrs. Claire and she came right over. She answered all my questions and always very quick in returning my calls and emails. I would recommend her to everyone. Thanks again Mrs. Claire!"

"It only took Carol 1 month to sell my condo!! Her photographer is fabulous!! I'm so thankful and highly recommend her and her fabulous team!!!"

  -Frederic, Client

"Very professional, first class operation from top to bottom. My home was posted and two weeks later I closed. They are very friendly and courteous. You leave feeling that your business was appreciated. Everyone I have ever met was professionally dressed and conducted themselves in a manner as such."

  -John, Client

"I want to personally thank you for referring Stephanie to us. She was beyond awesome! Also, I want to thank you for stepping in when needed. Having you be apart of the home buying process made me feel like we had a family member always on our side. You mean so much to my family and me. Thank you again for all your help!"

  -Joanna, Client

"I trust the KeyFinders Team. How much so? In the last year, my wife and I used KeyFinders to sell a home and buy a home and recommended them to a friend who in turn used them to purchase her home. Through it all, the KeyFinders were the consummate professionals, whether in setting the selling price or negotiating the purchase price. Over the years we've used real estate agents to buy and sell seven homes in five states. The KeyFinders sets the standard for professionalism and in ensuring we got the most for our money."

"Carol and Jeffrey were great to work with! Very responsive and knowledgeable about the market. Their communication and assistance with getting everything done through the close was extremely beneficial. Though I am not looking to buy or sell again in the near future, I would certainly go back to their team."

  -Jared, Client

"Stephanie and the rest of the team were always willing to go with me to see houses. We looked at a LOT of homes until we found the one that was beyond perfect."

  -Joanna, Client

"I had the pleasure of working with The Keyfinders Team in Baton Rouge, specifically Carol Poche, Jeffery Welsh, Gerry Poche and Neal Francois. They were thorough with their research, professional in all ways AND they sold our house in 10 days. We also got the price we wanted. After I was recruited from LSU to join the new president's staff at The University of Alabama, Carol's team helped us get relocated right away. They were a blessing to us!"

  -Linda, Client

"Thanks Neal…we put our trust in The Keyfinders Team because you earned it, starting with the professionalism and tenacity exhibited by Stephanie and you when we were buyers, not sellers. I suspect those are traits Jeffrey and Carol demand from all their team members. Myra and I couldn’t be happier."

  -Steve, Client

"Thank you for getting our home sold so quickly. It is a relief to no longer own it."

  -Sean, Client

"Stephanie was so wonderful and patient with us. Very knowledgeable about the neighborhoods and activities in the area. Stephanie found us the perfect home. They made everything so easy! Explained anything we didn't understand and always got answers to any questions we had. Thanks to everyone who helped us thru this! Even though I was hundreds of miles away during the whole process everyone was so helpful and made it so easy. Thank you thank you! You guys are great!"

"Wonderful team to work with. They are efficient and attentive, regardless of the size of the property. Will definitely use them again!"

"We are so glad we chose your team to sell our home. In spite of all of our meltdowns and after hours phone calls and emails, you remained very kind and professional! Once we understood and accepted the offer, it was a stress free and pleasant experience. And what a surprise the lava cakes were (seriously, have you tried these?) Thanks so much for your expertise and kindness. We really appreciate it. "

  -Hope and Ken, Client

"I will unhesitatingly recommend the team of Carol Poche and Jeffrey Welsh at Keller Williams/Keyfinders. I had a great experience with them during the recent sale of my home in Baton Rouge (the Fairhill/Spring lake area). I considered a lot of alternative realtors but went with them based on online sales stats that I gathered. I had sold a house previously around 5 years ago with another realtor and knew the process but my experience with Carol and Jeffrey exceeded my expectations.They bring several exceptional qualities to the table that you need to sell your home in a competitive market. 1) Pricing - They have a good knowledge of the local supply-demand scenario and so helped me price my house appropriately to keep it competitive. 2) Marketing - Did a great job advertising my home. They seem to have good contacts with other realtors and rental agencies and so identify prospective buyers. We had a constant stream of buyers looking at the house. 3) Feedback/Communication - They were pr"

"Thank you for selling my house as quickly as you did, I was not expecting that to happen so soon. I am very happy. It was a pleasure working with you all."

  -Elton, Client

"Claire David not only was really helpful and knowledgeable, she was always upbeat and energetic. She made the process a breeze and actually enjoyable."

  -Fred, Client

"We are so happy to have worked with the Keyfinders Team! They told us exactly what to do to sell our house quickly for the price we wanted. We sold our house in 3 days for more than we asked. Stephanie got us the house we wanted for a great price the same day. Thanks so much Carol, Jeffrey, Stephanie and the rest of the group! A wonderful experience from start to finish."

  -Shelly, Client

"Neal Francois with the KeyFinders Team did an exceptional job for us when searching for a condo for our daughter. He was professional, knowledgable and a pleasure to do business with! Don't hesitate to call Neal when looking for a realtor. You WILL NOT be disappointed!"
