Here?s some valuable information about the transition to GARDNER, REALTORS? and our new affiliate network, Leading Real Estate Companies of the World?.

Leading Real Estate Companies of the World? is a premier network of leading locally-branded companies in the US and the world. These independent real estate companies together do more real estate business than any national franchise competitor.

  • The company ownership is not changing, nor is the participation of our local owners changing for the foreseeable future.

  • The name transition occurred August 29, 2011.


  • GARDNER, REALTORS? was formerly one of eleven Prudential real estate companies with #1 market share.
  • With this new affiliation, we join many of our Leading Real Estate Companies of the World? affiliates who are #1 market leaders in 40% of the top 96 markets nationwide.

  • And as you may know, none of our local real estate competitors in the greater New Orleans area are nationally owned, although many are franchisees of national companies, as we were previously with Prudential.
  • GARDNER, REALTORS? exposes its listings to more websites than a typical franchisee of Prudential, and we will continue to do so. For several decades we have been ranked in the top 1% of all real estate companies nationwide for exposure.
  • Clients of the network?s 550 affiliated brokers in 30 countries will be able to search local GARDNER, REALTORS? listings from their websites.
  • We will now be able to offer sellers with listings over $500,000 a unique luxury homes program called GARDNER EXQUISITE HOMES. These listings will receive maximum exposure through exclusive market alliances with Board of Regents? / Who?s Who in Luxury Real Estate? (www.LuxuryRealEstate.com) and Luxury Portfolio International ? (www.LuxuryPortfolio.com).


  • Our personal website: www.TheBabstTeam.com has not changed, nor have any of our personal or office contact numbers.
