Keller Williams Worldwide (“KW”) is the #1 real estate franchise in the USA, the world’s largest real estate franchise, and the #1 training organization (of any business type) in the world. Each office is independently owned and operated. My office is the #1 office in a variety of categories in the entire Southern Region of the United States. I am registered as a Commercial Real Estate Agent with the office doing business as KW Commercial 889-9898 & Keller Williams Realty 4550100.
I am an award-winning "business broker". I help people value, buy, and sell businesses that include the lease or sale of real estate. I am an Economic Development Ambassador for the New Orleans Business Alliance, and I won the 2018 Rising Star Award from the Commercial Investment Division of the New Orleans Association of REALTORS in 2018. I am also a member of the International Business Broker's Association, Commercial Investment Division of the New Orleans Association of Realtors, and the Turnaround Management Association. I have the Certified Business Intermediary (CBI) designation from the IBBA, and I am one of 500 people in the USA with a CBI, the only one within 50 miles of New Orleans with a CBI, only 1 of 2 within 100 miles with a CBI, and only 1 of 3 in Keller Williams globally with a CBI. I am also a Certified International Property Specialist (CIPS), and likely the only on in the world who is also a CBI. I also have a MBA.
In terms of leadership and training experience, I have coached and every level from age-group sports to the National team level, and I have this coaching experience on 3 different continents and with players who speak zero English. I also started 8 non-profit organizations at the local, regional, national, and global level, one with 1500 members nationwide in a foreign country. Also in a foreign country I was once a Head Teacher for a flagship branch of a national franchise.
