Baton Rouge Real Estate

Baton Rouge.  We’re Louisiana’s capital city, home to oil and gas, engineering, healthcare, state government, and Louisiana’s flagship university, LSU.  Our history, industries, and universities create a unique cultural environment that is steeped in tradition and poised for the future.

Our homes are as distinctive as our culture.  In Baton Rouge builders include in their everyday designs the things you don’t find in other places.  Here we have triple crown moldings, high ceilings, wood beams, reclaimed brick, gas lights, covered porches, and lush landscapes.  It’s distinctive.  You know it when you see it, and we’re proud of it.

Our real estate market is robust.  In Baton Rouge, homes priced right sell quickly.  Our community is growing, our local economy and businesses are strong, and there’s a limited supply of land for new homes.  Old homes in disrepair are being torn down and new homes built in their place.  Downtown is likely to become “uptown” in the years to come and the neighborhoods near LSU, Towne Center, and Shenandoah are among the most sought after in the area.

This is an exciting time to be in the real estate business in Baton Rouge.  Whether you’re a home buyer or seller, I welcome the opportunity to help you.  I am passionate about technology and working with my clients to help them find the home of their dreams and achieve their goals.  I also enjoy art, photography, and design and created this site so I could share those interests with you.
