Expert resources in real estate and all things New Orleans!
New Orleans born and bred, I have an insider’s perspective on the rich mix of New Orleans’ various and unique neighborhoods - quaint doubles in the historic faubourgs of Marigny and Treme , Creole cottages and townhouses in the French Quarter, grand mansions in the Garden District, condominiums in old warehouses Downtown - plus Irish Channel, Algiers Point, Old Metairie, Lakeview and beyond.
Fifteen years in real estate with Gardner, Realtors, I have in-depth knowledge of the local real estate market and am consistently a multi million dollar producer for Gardner, earning production awards and lifetime membership in President’s Club. Named yearly among the top one hundred New Orleans area producers by CityBusiness magazine.
My buyers are offered expert supporting resources in lending, insurance, title considerations as well as extensive resources for renovation needs and home maintenance after closing a sale.
Sellers’ listings are serviced with comparable sales analyses, professional photography , floor plans, staging - plus print and email ads— and aggressive social media marketing to achieve top dollar sales.
Community and civic involvement includes past member of the Jr League of New Orleans, active member of Trinity Church, trustee on the Milne Boys Home board, Garden District Security District commissioner, member of Preservation Resource Center. Pre-realtor years: Co-authored “The Historic Garden District - An Illustrated Guide and Walking Tour”, owned and managed a four hundred member children’s consignment sale for ten years in Alabama, owned a business creating and painting chests and cabinets to depict historic New Orleans houses, still works part time as a broker rep for fine art portrait artists. True confession: once owned a business brokering sales of Mardi Gras queens gowns to private clients - only in New Orleans!
I live in the Garden District - and I love my city!
"Isabel is wonderful! I sort of dreaded the home buying experience. I was a first-time home buyer and during previous searches, I encountered realtors who pressured me to spend more than I wanted or to visit properties that did not interest me. Isabel was nothing like that. She was supportive throughout the entire process and offered her honest opinion when I asked. She was extremely patient and never rushed me to hurry up and buy a home. She guided me through each step of the way from initial offer to inspections to closing. I always felt that she was my advocate and had my best interest in mind. Isabel helped my husband and I find a home that we absolutely love. She has even checked in on us after the sale. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone in need of a realtor."
