Every deal has a tale / tail:


RDK Properties, LLC Richard Kyle  (1423 Lee St., Alex, LA 71303) to PMT Properties, LLC Brent Pearson (2804 North Bolton Ave., Alex., LA 71303) - Lot 2, Northport Commercial & Industrial Park (2804 North Bolton Ave., Alex., LA 71303), $373,750.00 This is 2.688 acres at Northport the seller paid $325,000 in March 3, 2007 from Mobile Air of Louisiana. Appears Brent was leasing this property next door to Petrus and decided to buy it. This is a good sign for Pearson Medical Tech and a fair price landlord selling to their tenant.

Unusual conditions in market place last two weeks five subdivisions lots in our office last few days. Two sold in Tennyson Oaks and three in Lake District. Two families walked in our property management looking for executive rentals both had sold very nice homes in new section of Charles Park and Lake District where complete stranger knocks on the door and says will you sell your home.


Daughter and her husband purchase home in old Metairie this week. Our son in law made comparison on their loan 3.5% at 40 years compared to 5.5% future rate and wait for home prices to decline. Price would need to decline 20% for their payments to remain the same. They bought now which I think is a good move.


Have client who is selling large farm and wants to invest in 1031 deferred tax exchange and looking to buy 20 to 25 nice homes in $160,000 to $200,000 range if you know of someone who owns a portfolio for homes in $150,000 to $200,000 range and wants to sell the entire package please have them call me.


Near Paradise Baptist Church of Highway 28 East on Hooper Road we have a land owner who is willing to give mobile home away, call my assistant Pricilla.  


Eddie’s barbeque at Lee and McArthur is opening back up.


Pelican Café at Esler airport was sooo!!! Good I am taking my entire staff last week of this month. Try the Perry burger.  


People not properties:


Buried good friend Darrell Guillory this past Monday, Darrell was college classmate, fraternity brother, and was in our wedding. Judy allowed me to visit with him at hospital on Thursday evening and we had great conversation. I told Darrell to send me a signal if he did not make it to heaven I would drastically change my game plan. The State troopers and Parish Sherriff officials standing at attention in the rain at the grave site was a beautiful tribute. If you have a good Darrell Guillory story give us a call.
