REALTY - Agent

Jodie is a seasoned, full-time real estate consultant at Green Coast Realty specializing in residential sales, green building and historic homes in New Orleans. As a nationally certified green building expert and leader in the sustainable building community, she is committed to helping sellers get more value for homes with energy efficiency improvements and helping buyers find and purchase homes with the kinds of high performance features they want.

Jodie began her real estate career in 1997 in Pensacola, Florida where she lived for fifteen years. Combining her knowledge of real estate and sociology, she went on to manage a Community Redevelopment Agency and Brownfields Program in Escambia County for nearly six years. Jodie then moved back to the New Orleans area in 2007 after Hurricane Katrina to assist family and friends. Soon after, she obtained her real estate license in Louisiana and earned the GREEN designation from the National Association of REALTORS. In the nearly 18 years she has been an actively licensed REALTOR, Jodie has helped hundreds of buyers and sellers along the Gulf Coast realize their dreams of buying a first home, upsizing, downsizing, and investing in rental property.

As the past Chair of the Green Committee of the New Orleans Metropolitan Association of REALTORS (2012-2014), she was instrumental in creating ways to document green features and certifications of residential properties in the New Orleans property database. Jodie also serves as Secretary on the Board of the Alliance for Affordable Energy.

Jodie graduated from St. Mary’s Dominican High School and holds a B.A. and M.A. in Sociology from the University of New Orleans. She has completed most of the work towards a Ph.D. in Sociology from Tulane University. Jodie is a mother and grandmother with a typical New Orleans love of family, friends, and good food.
