Why New Orleans for a second home? Sandy says its the French Quarter for them.

    In the business of real estate we get to meet a lot of people from all over the country looking for a second home or getaway.  Sandy and Scott are such a couple from Maryland.  They were in New Orleans several weeks ago looking for something under 200k that had the New Orleans feel.  I picked the best 6-7 condos that had that feel all over town so they could see the difference in what each section had to offer.  At the end of the day, they wanted to stay in the New Orleans French Quarter.  I asked them to give me some of the reasons they liked coming to New Orleans…………………. 
      “Our first trip to New Orleans was in August 1999 for our honeymoon. Everyone we knew advised against the trip – the HEAT AND HUMIDITY will be unbearable they said. We went anyway and had the time of our lives. The city exudes a sense of romance and mystery like no other place we have been. From the moment we arrived, New Orleans felt like home.

     “Hard to put a finger on just one thing we love about visiting the city. Naturally the food – who can top the food? Our favorite is Commander’s Palace and we always go there the last night we are in New Orleans.  Don’t get me wrong, there is never a problem finding great places to eat on our daily travels through the French Quarter.”


     “The people always amaze us.  Every time we have visited we have been fortunate to meet locals who have gone out of their way to point us in the right direction for the best of everything. Honestly, we have done alot of traveling and have never felt so welcomed.  Next up would be the never ending life of the city – entertainment, architecture, gardens, street performers and artists, tourists that have been to one bar too many and are still carrying my all time favorite the “to go” cup.”

     “Whenever life gets a little too rough, we head to New Orleans and the French Quarter – good for the soul.  Like the culture of the city, our feelings for New Orleans hasn’t changed so we have decided to look for a place to call our own.”
