The Managing Broker and principal owner of Korman Gerrity Real Estate, Joe entered the real estate field after Hurricane Katrina, when he bought, fixed, and sold flood-damaged properties while attending Tulane University. The experience taught him a lot — namely, the value of experience and hard work when trying to make money in the real estate market.
Joe specializes in representing buyers and sellers throughout the New Orleans Uptown and Garden District areas and brings a wealth of renovation experience to the table. He knows that being a Realtor isn’t just about closing a deal, it’s also about providing recommendations for flooring companies, insurers, painters, lawn care specialists, and title companies.
Joe lives with his wife in the Irish Channel in a home that he has renovated using his trusted contractors and design specialists. A former regular on local TV and radio, Joe has always had a passion for sports. He occasionally still contributes to ESPN and the ESPN TrueHoop Network as a member of their expert NBA panel.
