We are excited to announce Katie Witry has been selected by New Orleans Magazine as a 2018 Steel Magnolia. New Orleans Magazine’s Steel Magnolias are selected based upon their accomplishments as businesswomen and their philanthropy throughout the community.
The Southern woman has earned her fitting nickname: Steel Magnolia.
A Southern woman has infamous mystique. She is feminine, but not afraid to speak her mind; gracious, but in no way a pushover; and with the strength and force of hurricane winds whipping across the Gulf Coast.
The New Orleans Steel Magnolia special section is a celebration of life, love, strength and beauty within. Generous, durable and unflinching in character, our Steel Magnolias give even more to others than to themselves, and for this we gladly celebrate them in the October issue of New Orleans Magazine.
Realtor® and Co-Owner of The Witry Collective
Katie Witry believes the customer’s experience should be the core value of a company. In the Witry household, work and family life were blended. Both of Katie’s parents were small business owners and worked hard to form relationships with their clients, so Katie saw firsthand how the customer’s experience shapes a business.
She was part of a local firm for 14 years, and in January 2018, she opened a brokerage called the Witry Collective with three partners she has collaborated with for over a decade. When asked to sum up the Witry Collective difference she states, “We are a mission-driven company that is client-centric, focused on creating community within our vibrant historic neighborhoods.”
Witry’s work has also earned her several accolades: She was name a 2018 CityBusiness Excellence in Construction & Real Estate Honoree and was the 2016 Women’s Council of Realtors® New Orleans Metropolitan Chapter Member of the Year.
