Real Estate Broker/Notary Public
Delisha Boyd, LLC

A top producing agent for more than 15 years, Delisha Boyd opened her own firm in 2014. In five years, the team has grown from two (Boyd and her daughter) to nearly 50 agents, including several platinum-selling, multimillion-dollar producing agents. Boyd has been recognized by the New Orleans Metropolitan Association of Realtors (NOMAR) as a candidate for Manager of the Year for three consecutive years and received Excellence in Real Estate awards in both 2018 and 2019. Both Boyd and the brokerage are licensed in Louisiana, Georgia and Mississippi.

What are you most excited for in the coming year? I am excited about the available resources for buyers. The unexpected lowering of the mortgage interest rates has been a welcomed surprise. In addition, the multiple programs available to buyers to assist in homeownership will shift the supply and demand and encourage, even inspire, existing homeowners to sell their homes. The lower interest rates, availability of bond and grant funds, and more homes available for sale will counteract rising home prices. In the coming year, and for the remainder of 2019, we can expect the housing market to continue to improve in both sales and pricing. We are also excited about becoming the listing brokerage for a new, 20-unit condo development on Freret Street.

What would you say is the biggest challenge you’re seeing? The biggest challenge is finding qualified lenders and mortgage brokers to work with the wide array of buyers, especially those who are self-employed. Surprisingly, even with the lowest rates in history, some people have not been able to qualify for mortgage financing. Many lenders have tightened guidelines, and some lenders aren’t qualified to or have refused to participate in some of the bond and grant funding programs. This is slowly creating a marketplace with excess inventory, attractive interest rates and very few qualified buyers.
