Katie Witry, was named one of Gambit Weekly’s TOP 3 BEST REAL ESTATE AGENTS IN NEW ORLEANS in 2011, 2012 & 2013 because of you!
Over the last 9 years Katie has helped 420 New Orleanians make educated decisions about their purchases and sales.
In response to the current market place Katie developed a start up with 2 of her colleagues called the Witry Collective that works under the Brokerage Gardner Realtors. Katie Witry, Adrienne LaBauve and Josh Walther are all experienced realtors that are locally minded, community involved and are working together to guide you through the buying or selling of your property. All three realtors are LEED conscious, experienced in new construction, historic preservation and restoration.
Inventory is low and prices have risen as a response to the high consumer confidence in New Orleans. At times Katie, Josh and Adrienne have to react on a moments notice- hence the reason Katie has developed the Witry Collective offering clients a team of skilled professionals with solid relationships within the industry.
Some highlights from 2014 for the Witry Collective
This year in March, Katie Witry was honored with 3 awards:
1) Highest award for community service in promoting smart homeownership through homebuyer workshops.
2) Top sales award in all of Gardner Realtors for working without an assistant.
3) Reaching 3 transactions a month for consecutive 12 months.
Adrienne was also honored with an award in March for her hard work & productivity in her first year of real estate with Gardner Realtors.
In the first 6 months of 2014 Josh has averaged 3 home sales per month.
In June Katie spoke for the 2nd year in a row at The Women’s Council of Realtors Luncheon where she was honored as a Top Producer.
Katie is expecting her 2nd child in September and the Witry Collective will be supporting her in this new chapter of life.
Let’s show new home buyers and seller’s that the Witry Collective should be their first choice by getting this new start up named Gambit Weekly’s BEST REAL ESTATE AGENT IN NEW ORLEANS in 2014!

“School House Rock” marqueed the merriment for City Year New Orleans at Rosy’s Jazz Hall; “Victory Begins at Home: New Orleans 1944” amassed hordes to the National WWII Museum for the 2014 Victory Ball; and, with a nod to the elegant televised soap opera, “Downton Abbey,” the Daughters of the British Empire laid out “British Afternoon Tea.” The Pavilion of Longue Vue House and Gardens was the site for the sipping.
Everything’s Coming Up Rosy’s
Mayor Mitch and Cheryl Landrieu served as the honorary chaircouple for “School House Rock,” which hailed James Carville and Mary Matalin as the 2014 School House Rock Stars. More top names were those of Norma Jane Sabiston, Ronald Carrere and Kevin Wilkins, who co-chaired the SHR host committee, and Diana M. Lewis, advisory board chairwoman. Bain Capital was the sponsor.
Noted, too, were state Rep. Walt Leger, City Councilwoman Susan Guidry, Ernesto Anguilla, Michael Connolly, Sakari Morrison, Jennifer Eplett Reilly, Jay Altman, Eli Feinstein, D’Juan Hernandez, and Sarah Usdin. For starters.
A program titled “City Year Chronicles & Ceremony” punctuated the 6-9 p.m. event, which was a celebration of service. City Year, an education-focused nonprofit organization, was founded in 1988. It partners with public schools to help keep students in school and graduate. To further this goal, teams of young AmeriCorps members commit to a year of full-time service in the schools, providing tutoring, mentoring and after-school programs.
The party’s invitation stated “Join City Year New Orleans to celebrate the service of our corps members… and learn about their work.”
Meanwhile, guests meandered about Rosy’s Jazz Hall, enjoying the food catered by the venue, casting an eye on the flowers by NOLA Tilth, and turning an ear to the NOCCA Jazz Ensemble. Those who give, often get. The gifts to the host committee were City Year Journals, as well as candied apples (remember this is a school-oriented event!) from Mister Apple. To learn about the corps members, each guest received a “homework” card, which served as an event “icebreaker,” containing images of City Year corps members.
At Picnic Media, we love helping clients become more successful because our success comes directly from helping clients create their own success. Just last week two of our Real Estate clients won big and we couldn’t be more proud!
