Office Asst & Real Estate Advisor
Born in New York and transplanted in Mississippi gave Colleen the opportunity to experience the bustle of big city life as well as the slower pace of small-town living.
After college at the University of Southern Mississippi, Colleen relocated again in the mid-1970s, this time to New Orleans, where she was employed as a flight attendant for a national airline. She met her husband, Louis, and a few years later they married and had two daughters.
Since 1990, Colleen has been helping sellers and buyers successfully transition from one phase of home ownership to the next. Whether putting a house on the market or helping a buyer find the right home, she’s guided them through the search process, the showing process, the inspection process, the loan process and the closing process. She’s experienced and resolved “worst-case” scenarios, including fire, flooding and divorce of the owners while properties were on the market.
Colleen has worked with national relocation companies in transferring clients both in and out of the Greater New Orleans area, the Northshore of Lake Pontchartrain, and Baton Rouge.
In her free time, she enjoys traveling and spending time with her three grandchildren.
