Recently our firm completed two of the largest transactions in New Orleans: one was a complex 600 acre land development taken over by a bank and fraught with problems, but we successfully found a buyer. When that buyer was not able to obtain financing, we found another buyer who closed within a few months. Another complex transaction was a 131,000sf building on Canal Street which we successfully marketed and delivered a buyer within just a few months, even though the building was vacant and only a shell and had no access to the top 3 floors.
