Big Steve and the Southland Team

The founder of Southland Properties, Steve Hayden is an LSU alumnus and is the broker for Southland Properties. After working with a large real estate firm for a few years, Steve realized the need for a more personal, property management company. He broke off on his own and began developing a professional, Property Management and Real Estate Sales company, that provided a more personal experience with its clients than what could be achieved in a large real estate firm. Steve grew the business from managing just a few residential properties, to what is now over 1500 residential and commercial properties with professional property managers in place, always holding true to his value of giving Southland’s Clients a more Personal experience in all their real estate needs.

Sheila Hayden

After being an Elementary School Teacher for 10 years in Ascension Parish, Sheila decided to acquire her real estate license and join her husband’s real estate firm, which eventually turned the company into the family business it is today! Having been selling real estate since 1993, she holds the most sales experience on the Southland team, and as a former teacher, she enjoys training our new agents who come on board. Sheila takes pride in her niche of selling high dollar, luxury homes, and has a knack for knowing all the new trends and fashions for home decorating and design.

Steven and the Future

Steve is now joined by his son, Steven who is a graduate of LSU with a bachelor’s degree in Industrial Engineering. Always having had a passion for real estate, he decided his true calling fell around building Southland to become a large scale, professional real estate company, that stays devoted to that core, original value, of giving its clients a more personal, real estate and property management experience. Since Steven has joined full time, he has expanded to new regions and excelled in analyzing new deals on the market and provided a professional service to help close those transactions and achieve the highest return on investment for his clients.
