Special thanks to our presenting sponsor: Lauren Chiu, a local mom, friend of New Orleans Mom and licensed REALTOR® with McEnery Residential.

Local Realtor Ne Orleans

Lauren is a licensed REALTOR® with McEnery Residential. Lauren has always had a passion for helping others, which you’ll find obvious in her approach toward real estate. Her ability to find real value and potential in a property is a trait in which she takes great pride. Prior to joining McEnery Residential, Lauren gained valuable and extensive experience in real estate through re-development and investment initiatives within her family’s real estate portfolio. Lauren’s passion for real estate can be traced back to her mother, who was a very successful real estate agent in Mississippi most of her life. While servicing her clients’ needs in real estate is her primary obsession, Lauren also enjoys all things related to New Orleans’ historic homes and fun renovation projects. In her free time, you can find her attending a sporting event for one of her three sons, playing tennis, or working on a DIY project.
