Happy Homeowners

  • Katie and her team were my advocates and wise advisors while selling my house. Katie is a leader and I trust her. She knows the New Orleans market, its people, its economy. Katie is a pro. For as long as I live in New Orleans, and for as long as she is willing, she will be my real estate agent.

    Very professional and efficient. Their attention to detail is on point, their communication is polite and direct. No time wasted and all in good time. Purchasing a house with them was a very enjoyable experience.

    We had a great experience working with Josh as we both purchased and sold our first home in New Orleans. Unlike other realtors we've worked with, Josh is solution-oriented and willing to go the extra mile to get the job done. When our sale hit multiple snags, Josh was always a phone call away, ready to counsel us and craft a Plan B together. He's a phenomenal realtor, and a true asset to the Witry Collective team.

  • We loved working with Katie! Incredibly patient, professional, and smart, she guided us through the homebuying process, educating us along the way. She has a depth of knowledge in multiple neighborhoods and can recommend people for any related services that one might need before they buy. Can't recommend highly enough.

    I've bought and sold numerous times and my experience with Sophie at Witry was one of the best. I flew into NOLA on a tight schedule; she understood exactly the areas I wanted to see and was efficient with my time. After selecting a property, Sophie handled essentially all the pre-closing appointments for me with no issues until I could get back to NOLA. It was one of the smoothest transactions I've had, and rather than being stressful because I was out of town for most of it, Sophie made it easy. Highly recommended.

    As first-time home-buyers, we had quite a few questions and Josh was extremely helpful and responsive. His network was invaluable throughout the entire process, and he helped us well beyond closing and moving in. We couldn't recommend him more, and I'm sure we'll use him again in the future.

  • We had an amazing experience working with Katie (Witry). She was very responsive, detail oriented, efficient, and thorough. Not to mention, she was always available to talk to us about any comments/questions/concerns no matter what time or day it was. She also did a great job with negotiations and got us a good price on our offer. We truly enjoyed working with her and wholeheartedly recommend her!!

    Loved working with Witry Collective! They know the market better than anybody and have block-by-block experience that ensures you make a great decision. Closing was smooth and organized and they are bulldogs for making sure the property is up to snuff - fighting for your needs up until the final minute. Also friendly and make the buying process fun! We were unbelievably lucky to work with them!

  • Katie was very helpful in getting my family home on the market and sold within a couple of days. The home had not been maintained for 12 years. She had the perfect eye for staging the home to show it's character and charm, everything from replacing old curtains with white sheers to planting a garden and finally her cleaning crew came in and did their magic, the house looked amazing.


    We had a great experience working with Josh as we both purchased and sold our first home in New Orleans. Unlike other realtors we've worked with, Josh is solution-oriented and willing to go the extra mile to get the job done. When our sale hit multiple snags, Josh was always a phone call away, ready to counsel us and craft a Plan B together. He's a phenomenal realtor, and a true asset to the Witry Collective team.


    Sophie was extremely professional and very attentive to our constant questions we had as first-time home buyers. Being from New Orleans, she is immeasurably knowledgable about the city and neighborhoods, and she quickly picked up on our taste in homes. We were also impressed by how accurate she was in her advice on pricing, she can walk into a house and estimate how much it should go for, if it is over-priced, etc. We would highly recommend using her to find (or sell) a house!

  • Katie Witry was, to put it simply, amazing. She is an extremely astute listener, so she knew exactly what we wanted and needed from a property before we ourselves had articulated a vision. Her local knowledge runs extremely deep, and her commitment to building community shines through her realty work. We were out of state buyers and first time buyers, and Katie's support throughout the process went well beyond what was required. Katie is incisive, detail-oriented, and a truly dedicated advocate for her clients. We would not have our beautiful home if it weren't for Katie.

    I cannot say enough about Josh. He knows the market, learns about your needs quickly and has any and all the resources to make your process easy! Josh maintains a level of professionalism that takes all the stress out of buying or selling a home.

    We had a phenomenal experience with Brett as our agent, and he helped us to find the perfect home for us in New Orleans. We visited dozens of homes with Brett over a year-long period, and Brett was incredibly responsive (sending us homes that were aligned to our search criteria, and arranging visits promptly). He was consistently knowledgable, warm and patient.

  • Adrienne was an absolute pleasure to work with.

    As first time home buyers, Adrienne scheduled a 'Home Buying 101' where she walked us through everything from beginning stages to closing. Her knowledge of not only the marketplace, but also Real Estate in general shined through. It was at that moment that I knew we were in great hands.


    Brett went above and beyond our expectations and was a delight to work with. Having no previous knowledge of New Orleans real estate landscape Brett patiently held our hands and walked us through the process, showing us an abundance of wonderful home possibilities. With his extrordinary historical knowledge of the New Orleans architecture he was able to educate and inform us at just a glance of a property, he's very impressive.


    Brett has been a great addition to team! His knowledge of local markets and products has enabled us to maximize our deals! Brett finds the right clients, (some times before completion!!!) for our properties. The accurate Price recommendations have resulted in low market time while getting a great price! I look forward to working with Brett in the future.

  • Brett Rector exceeded my expectations at every turn when selling my house. He is a true professional-attentive, responsive, provides immediate feedback and communicates regularly. Most importantly, his pricing analysis was spot on so the house went under contract quickly. Since I no longer live in New Orleans, I relied heavily on Brett to manage each step of the process, including negotiations, inspections, and overseeing repairs.


    We began working with Brett Rector on the sale of my Father’s home in March of 2017. To say this was a complicated transaction would be a small understatement. My husband and I live in Dallas, Texas while my Father’s home was in the French Quarter. The homes in the French Quarter are old homes and this property was no exception. Unfortunately, there was probably 10 years of deferred maintenance on top of its age. Lastly, there were sizable liens against the property which would need to be satisfied to complete a sale.


    I could not imagine a better realtor than Katie Witry. She is highly detail-oriented, incredibly hard-working, an excellent negotiator, has a great sense of the market and can get along with anyone! I urge anyone buying or selling a house to work with her and her team--they are the best!

  • When selling our home in the Irish Channel we KNEW there was one agent for us and that was Brett. He is so smart and devoted to not only making sure you have an effortless and comfortable sale but also being the kind and helping hand in easing your worried minds in those moments that you just need a little extra support. He knows the New Orleans market like the back of his hand and always manages to bring his work ethic and wonderful sense of humor and style to every sale we done with him.


    Brett has been my Realtor now for over five years for two purchases and subsequent sale of both of those properties.

    Brett is a very professional person with extensive knowledge of real estate transactions, the New Orleans market, financing options, and referrals for anything I have needed to manage and update my homes.


    Cannot recommend Katie more highly. We have worked with Katie on two occasions, once as buyers and once as sellers. Most recently, she skillfully negotiated our sale in uptown NO, which included counter offers, many emotions and several repairs to our home. Her network of tradesmen (with which she has impressive scheduling power) was highly valuable to us as well as being reasonably priced. Katie has not only a keen knowledge of the New Orleans market, but also an ability to negotiate tough transactions and all personalities involved with grace and professionalism.

  • Adrienne was such a pleasure to work with. Adrienne was just ready to go on all fronts. She worked with the challenges that came up for us with positivity and perspective. She was reachable early, late, weekends, all the time. She really listened to what I wanted, to my values and ethics, she gave me honest feedback about what felt right for me and what didn't in our searches and we found the right house together.


    We've worked with Josh on purchasing two homes and selling one - love working with him and appreciate how incredibly responsive he is to his clients. He has great local connections and always can make things work out! Definitely recommend him highly.


    Josh helped me at a time in my life when I needed guidance. He made the process of selling my old house and buying my new house go smoothly. He was always ready to answer any questions that I had. He even helped me organize an estate sale. I would highly recommend Josh.

  • Katie Witry - who represented us as the seller of our historic home in New Orleans' Central City neighborhood - is amazingly competent and able about the real estate business, while being extraordinarily understanding about the personal and human implications of her work on her clients and their families, homes, and communities.


    Adrienne went above and beyond the listing and selling of our home in New Orleans. She was available at all times, 24/7, and was extremely prompt in responding to any inquiries we had regarding the sale and process of selling our property. She listed and closed on the sale of our home in less than two months! We would use her again in a heartbeat and highly recommend her as a listing or buying agent.

    We had such an excellent experience with our first home purchase with Katie Witry and the Witry Collective. Katie is incredibly knowledgeable about local historical preservation and has a deep understanding of the architectural details that make the homes in New Orleans so unique. Because of this, she was able to offer us informative guidance on both the features of the homes and neighborhoods (the building materials, styles, and history), as well as the home-buying process.

  • Katie is a true professional in Real Estate. Having been involved in Commercial Real Estate for many years, I know and understand when an agent brings true value to the table. Ms. Witry does not set the "Bar", she is the "Bar". Ms. Witry begins the process by getting to know you, what you believe your vision of your needs are, and then begins what she calls the process. Over time, you often learn to refine your vision based on reality and honest discussion.


    Katie exudes professionalism, hard work, and a genuine care for her clients. At our first meeting she was already prepared with an entire binder of information on our house and competing properties in the market. I felt secure in her knowledge from the first moment. She went above and beyond the call of duty to sell our home going so far as to manage the procurement and execution of over 5 separate contractors on our home.


    Josh is AWESOME. He patiently walked with us from beginning to end in the process of purchasing a home in New Orleans. He made the whole experience smooth with his thoroughness, attention to detail, and taking extraordinary care of us far beyond what one can expect. I would absolutely recommend Josh as an expert in his field, and just a great, funny, honest, person. Thanks Josh!

  • Katie was the key to our success in purchasing a condo in New Orleans. We gave her exact requirements as to what we were seeking and by the time we met her she had identified the small number of properties that met our requirements. She showed them to us in one day. Her incredible knowledge of the city, its properties, and her fellow professionals gave us the opportunity to buy the property.


    We worked with Josh when we purchased our home and again when we sold it. We believe Josh is a true gem in the world of New Orleans realtors! Not only is he extremely knowledgeable, we feel he goes above and beyond to make the process as painless as possible. He also has a great sense of humor which, in our opinion, is very valuable in helping make house buying/selling enjoyable.


    Adrienne was truly impressive in my first experience as a home buyer. The Witry Collective broadly and Adrienne specifically were referred to me by several friends, and I can't imagine that anyone could have done a better job through what was a very challenging process. Adrienne was able to help me secure an incredible price for my new fixer-upper in the prime neighborhood, and helped me to find and vet several contractors to do the construction.

  • Adrienne was a wonderful guide for us as first time homebuyers. She is very accessible and also very knowledgeable. Adrienne looked at a LOT of properties with us (for our very specific home search) and helped us retain our optimism in finding the right fit.


    Katie facilitated the sale of our commercial/residential property

    and was truly great to work with. From start to finish she was incredibly responsive with a vast knowledge of the market as well as the whole process. I would highly recommend her for any real estate needs.
