About Brett


Brett A. Rector

Brett is a versatile, seasoned Real Estate professional with over 14 years of experience helping buyers, sellers and investors realize their Real Estate dreams & goals.

Brett left behind a very successful RE career in the Miami-Ft Lauderdale, FL markets to move to New Orleans in July of 2005 for the opportunity to work with his mentor, the legendary Martha Ann Samuel. Approximately eight weeks later, Hurricane Katrina ravaged the Gulf Coast region and flooded the City of New Orleans. Determined to realize his dream of living in this magical city, Brett returned in October of 2005. After his mentor passed away in November of 2005, Brett focused his energies and efforts on building his RE business & helping rebuild his new home city. Brett has consistently been listed amongst the Top Real Estate Producers by City Business Magazine as well as a NOMAR Gold & Platinum multi-million dollar producer & Gardner Realtors Platinum Award winner. Receiving his Historic Home Specialist designation from the Preservation Resource Center in 2009, Brett has focused much of his efforts listing & selling homes in New Orleans’ distinctive, historic neighborhoods such as the Garden District, Irish Channel, Treme, Bywater and Marigny.

“After Katrina, I saw an opportunity to be a part of something incredibly important & special.” Brett says. “No American city has faced the challenges in recent times that New Orleans did after Katrina. I made the decision and choice to remain here and build a life, home and career for myself. In many ways I am exactly like dozens of clients I have helped with their Real Estate transactions over the year. I came here by choice and I stayed because of my love for the city’s charm and culture & for the people that make New Orleans uniquely New Orleans.”

A native of the Midwest, Brett has lived in Chicago, Los Angeles & Ft Lauderdale. With an educational background in Journalism, a keen eye for detail and a relentless passion for his profession, Brett has earned the respect of his peers & the devotion of his clients.

Brett calls the historic Bywater home with his two rescue English Springer Spaniels, Opal and Louie St. Louis, an incorrigible Wheaten Terrier, Rudy. A staunch supporter of animal charities, Brett contributes to English Springer Spaniel Rescue of America, ARNO, and other New Orleans based animal rescue groups. Additionally, Brett volunteers for the Preservation Resource Center’s events such as the Holiday Home Tour & Great Neighborhood Sellabration.
