About Me

Introducing the Kirby & Reese Team

Real Estate has been a passion for me!  I have years of experience with sales, property management and renovation consulting and oversight!  

                  For a little of my history, read below!

  • Interested in land and property as far back as the ninth grade.                                                                                                            
  • After graduating from LSU & moving to New Orleans, I became licensed in Real Estate.
  • Renting properties & sales was the way I started.
  • Networking through my community involvement built my business.

When you choose the Kirby & Reese Team of Gardner Realtors as your agents, you can be sure that we have the experience, skills and technical ability to help you with your real estate pursuits.  For years, I worked with 8 owners and managed over one hundred properties all across Orleans and Jefferson Parish.  I handled the showings, leasing, collections of rent and the repairs.  As a consultant, I oversaw renovations and worked with vendors and tradesmen to complete the work.  With these same owners, I facilitated sales and purchases of land.  Today, I am still overseeing a property for one of the original owners!

As agents with Gardner Realtors we have the most up-to date training and sales processes as well as partnerships with financial resources and international outreach for customers in this real estate market.  My new partner, Lynn Kirby has technical skills, corporate experience and has owned many homes! Both of us are Louisiana natives!

I grew up in Louisiana and fell in love with New Orleans and its music, food and history. My involvements in the community has been with such organizations as the American Council for Career Women, Orleans Women Tennis Club, the New Orleans Garden Society, Fine Arts Club, Cottey College and PEO, the Chamber, the Greater New Orleans Sorority Alumni Association, Spirit of 76, and a volunteer including as a Court Appointed Advocate with CASA.  Besides real estate, I have worked in retail, taught in high school and college and worked for the State of Louisiana.

My partner and I love the business and are enthusiastic about helping you find your new home, sell your property or help you rent a property.  If you have property to manage, we have the experience to do that as well.  GIVE US A CALL!
