Cassandra Sharpe moved to New Orleans in 1962 with her family from Ft Worth, Texas, where she was born. Her family moved away in 1966, but she would have none of that, falling deeply in love with New Orleans culture, the mighty Mississippi and New Orleans architecture, whether the smallest shotgun-style house or a spacious 19th century townhouse.
Cassandra attended Loyola University in New Orleans and went to work in the fields of banking and hotels, transitioning into commercial real estate in the 1980's. After being a commercial agent with Waguespack Pratt & Coldwell Banker Commercial, she opened her own firm in 1987. Following Katrina in 2005, she moved into residential brokerage.
In October of 1993, after living in the French Quarter for 20 years she purchased one of the Thirteen Sisters on Julia Street in the Lafayette Square District. It is an 1832 Georgian townhouse that was in total disrepair and had not been lived in for some 50 years. This purchase and renovation started an adventure that changed her whole life. She and her husband of 28 years live in this renovated single-family home on Julia Row and travel to East Hampton, New York in the summers.
She happens to live in the same block of Julia Street as Dorian Bennett Sotheby's International Realty, where she is now an Associate Broker. She looks forward to introducing you to New Orleans real estate .... and a new adventure!
