What do you enjoy most about working for RE/MAX?
It is a privilege to work among smart, kind, hardworking people.
What are your selling specialties?
When working with a seller, I love transforming a property by staging it with furniture and art. A “lived-in” property helps a buyer assess spaces. When a buyer is in a staged property, it slows that buyer down long enough to picture their own lives unfolding in their new home.
What do you appreciate most about being a realtor in New Orleans?
I love meeting people who are new to the city. My first real estate agent helped me to sift through the New Orleans neighborhoods, the inventory and options in the real estate market. I try to pay those valuable lessons forward with every client with whom I work.
What are you looking forward to in the coming year?
I learn something new with each transaction that I complete. The real estate agents in New Orleans are my teachers and my friends. We collaborate, we compete and we celebrate when we’re able to bring clients together. It isn’t always easy, but it’s always rewarding. No home is perfect, but finding a home that’s perfect for a client’s wants and needs is what I get to do day after day. The combination of a worldwide pandemic and low interest rates has created an unprecedented real estate environment. I’m excited about every new listing; from Downtown condos to Uptown cottages to Garden District luxury estate properties and suburban homes on the Westbank and in Metairie.
Is there anything else you’d like us to know about yourself or your business?
The real estate business requires constant attention and flexibility. My family and friends are very tolerant of unanticipated deadlines and the changes in plans required to accommodate clients. My family is also very tolerant when I ask them to move furniture out of our home to a listing, which happens at least once a week!
