Real Big

Editor’s Note

Two years old. Just like a toddler, we’ve learned to walk and now we’re really starting to get into things.

This issue marks the start of our third year publishing Biz New Orleans and to celebrate, we’re all about real estate.

Partnering with the 6th Annual Economic & Real Estate Forecast Symposium, to be held Oct. 11 at Loyola University’s Roussel Hall, Biz New Orleans has chosen October as the perfect month to delve into the current state and future of both the commercial and residential markets in New Orleans.

While every issue has always included two main features, after speaking and brainstorming with a few of the incredible professionals in this industry, we decided that for the first time we had to go big. The result is one giant, 11-page feature packed with insight from some of the biggest names in urban development, residential, affordable housing, the CBD, the mortgage industry and office and retail.

In addition to our Top 10 Influencers, you’ll also find a Q&A with commercial sales and leasing dynamos Rhonda Sharkawy and Kirsten Early — who together represented more than $50 million in volume last year.

Playing off the symposium’s theme this year, “Moving Forward…Engines for Growth” we were able to have some fun with both these ladies and Alton McRee, president and CEO of Fidelity Bank — the presenting sponsor of this year’s event — at the NOLA Motorsports Park for the cover shot. A big thank you to Henry Shane, who let us borrow one of the prized automobiles included in his personal collection.
