                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2008

                  About the owner: Gary is a Native New Orleanian who has lived in San Francisco and travelled the world, only to return home to NOLA! Having returned to marry the girl next door just a few months before Katrina, he has played his part in rebuilding this wonderful city through various real estate projects and other entrepreneurial ventures. And now he's never leaving!

                  Why the Owner Chose Uptown-Carrollton:
                  This building was falling down after 'The Storm,' as we call it. When the chance came up to buy it from an out of town investor who was unable to recover from storm damages, we jumped at it. The moment the neighbors saw that we were fining the place up and getting good people living there, they were really happy to see the neighborhood improving, one property at a time. We are proud owners and Proud New Orleanians!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                  We decided to make your visit as comfy and soothing with the help of some of our vast collection of Indian and Asian art. Amassed from various world travels, the art is collectively known as Meditation Art. We sell much of the art and decorative items through If you stay here and love something that is on the walls or shelves and want to take it home with you, we offer a Friends & Family special discount.
