Katie Witry believes the customer’s experience should be the core value of a company. In the Witry household, work and family life were blended. Both of Katie’s parents were small business owners and worked hard to form relationships with their clients, so Katie saw firsthand how the customer’s experience shapes a business. She was part of a local firm for 14 years, and in January 2018, she opened a brokerage called the Witry Collective with three partners she has collaborated with for over a decade. When asked to sum up the Witry Collective difference she states, “We are a mission-driven company that is client-centric, focused on creating community within our vibrant historic neighborhoods.” Witry’s work has also earned her several accolades: She was named a 2018 CityBusiness Excellence in Construction & Real Estate Honoree and was the 2016 Women’s Council of Realtors® New Orleans Metropolitan Chapter Member of the Year.
