Brett A. Rector

“Your reputation is everything,” says Brett Rector, and he means this for every aspect of life. Over the course of his career, Rector has grown to understand the value of both personal and professional relationships and in holding himself to the highest standard. Under the guidance of his mentor, Martha Ann Samuel, Rector relocated from a successful career in Ft. Lauderdale to set up home base in New Orleans, mere weeks before Hurricane Katrina. After the storm, Rector came to understand a new definition of “hard work” and worked diligently to bring a fresh perspective to his clients and his industry. His efforts have paid off tenfold with the founding of Witry Collective, which he established with three of his colleagues and which Rector calls his “crowning achievement.”

In addition to his day-to-day work and serving as a Historic House Specialist, Rector and the Witry team are actively involved with the Preservation Resource Center, sponsoring several of their events and hosting a residence during their Shotgun House Tour.
