About

I am a New Orleans local with a life-long passion for housing and a background rich in construction and remodeling experience.  I am keenly interested in architecture and design and I bring a unique blend of talent, experience, and opportunity to my clients, offering skills honed through the years and a highly sharpened vision for an opportunity.  I look forward to sharing my creativity and a lifetime of both practical and design experience to help you get the best price if you are selling and to recognize and capitalize on opportunities, that may have otherwise been overlooked, on the buying end of the transaction.

I am delighted to be part of the Engel & Völkers team, widely recognized as the “premier” international real estate brokerage.  Affiliation with a company that provides the opportunity to market not only to locals but to a national and international client base offers such an invaluable asset for both buyers and sellers.  I am thrilled to partner with a company that is equally passionate about serving the housing industry.

As your realtor, I deeply value the confidence placed in me and am committed to utilizing my experience to deliver professional representation, competence, integrity and the best price the market will bear. Whether you are relocating for your job, purchasing a second home, an investor interested in expanding your portfolio, a homeowner moving up or downsizing, or a first-time home buyer, I am committed to offering outstanding service and going the extra mile to close the deal.  I understand the value of the trust you place in me and look forward to the opportunity to serve you.  My goal as your Advisor is to deliver exceptional service and develop a life-long friendship and business relationship, based on trust and performance.

Besides architecture and design, my interests include gardening, interior design, and fashion.  I enjoy traveling, nature, entertaining and writing, and I aspire to be published one day.  I love animals and have two pets; a Siamese-hybrid cat I raised from 2 weeks old and a Golden Retriever, who is the proverbial attention hound. I enjoy spending free time with family and friends and soaking up the local culture.
