The Pat Wattam Team Sells a House Every 3 Days!!
Pat Wattam and her Team joined forces with RE/MAX First in 2003 and quickly became the number one RE/MAX Team in Baton Rouge in 2009, 2008, 2007, 2006 and 2004. The Pat Wattam Team was just named the Number 1 RE/MAX Team for the whole state of Louisiana for 2011!!With her background in music and her passion for real estate sales, Pat Wattam is known for her flair in marketing and her persistence in getting the job done. "Making Things Happen" isn't just a motto for her, it's what she does! A native of Arkansas, a graduate in Music Education from Arkansas Tech University and holding a Master of Music in Clarinet Performance from Michigan State University, Pat and her husband Roger moved to Baton Rouge in 1979 when Roger joined the Music Department at LSU. They are both avid tennis players, obviously enjoy music, and love to travel - and when they travel, horseback riding always comes into the picture!! Pat's new hobby (or obsession, if you will!), is oil painting!!!
Pat truly believes in the ''customer for life'' concept and it shows in the attention she pays to her clients, both during and after the process. Pat has built a team with agents who have different strengths but who all believe in taking care of the client and making the home buying and selling process as hassle free as possible! That is why the majority of their business comes from referrals from past clients, friends, Realtors, and neighbors! A lot of her clients and neighbors attend the Team's Annual Christmas Party where they collect food for the Baton Rouge Food Bank.

Bill Arey4750 Sherwood CommonBaton RougeLA 70816 US
Bill Arey, REALTOR, has lived in south Baton Rouge his entire life. He had a successful 25 years in sales and management, but had thought about selling real estate for some time. Once the opportunity came to join his good friend, Pat Wattam, in her business, Bill jumped at the chance!! "With Bill's background, I knew he would be a natural at real estate. Given his knowledge of the Old Baton Rouge area, he will be a real asset to the team!" says Pat Wattam.
Bill is not only a native son, he is also a graduate of LSU with Bachelor of Music and Master of Music degrees. He is married to Emily DiStefano and they have two lovely young daughters. Bill still has a strong interest in music - classical guitar especially - and photography, as well as traveling with his family.
"Having lived in south Baton Rouge my entire life, I look forward to sharing my knowledge of what this wonderful city has to offer. Please call me so I can help you choose the right house for your life style." Bill Arey
Blaise Roy4750 Sherwood CommonBaton RougeLA 70816 US
Working with buyers and sellers the past seven years in real estate has been very rewarding because I love the real estate business. It is a thrill for me to help clients find their dream home – from finding the right home to handing the keys to the new homeowner!! Since I personally own investment property, I feel very strongly that we should help people create wealth through the ownership of rental property. It is so rewarding to see the end result when I can secure a home for an investor that cash flows!!
I am a lifelong resident of Louisiana and a longtime resident of the Central area. I am a member of the board of directors for Central Private School and the Central Chamber of Commerce. My 12 year old son and I enjoy the outdoors together, especially the fall since he is an avid football fan!
Karen Cody4750 Sherwood CommonBaton RougeLA 70816 US
Karen and her daughter return to Baton Rouge from Dallas, TX. Karen has been involved in the mortgage industry for a number of years and brings her organizational skills to the Pat Wattam Team! As a Realtor, Karen is able to help you with any aspect of your transaction and is in the office daily to make sure that the process runs smoothly. Karen is an avid tennis player and also enjoys listening to her daughter perform with the Louisiana Youth Orchestra!
Roger WattamRealtor4750 Sherwood CommonBaton RougeLA 70816 US
Roger, Pat's husband, retired from LSU and joined the team to help with many facets of the operation. His extensive background in managing and maintenance of the rental property they own has been a real benefit to their clients who seek his advice on owning and managing of their own rental property. If you have any interest in vacation properties to rent on the Gulf Coast in Orange Beach, AL, let him know. We own several vacation properties, including a corner unit with wrap around balcony at Windward Pointe.

Roger is also an avid tennis player and plays on several teams. We were so excited that 3 of his 4 teams won their league in Baton Rouge to go on to the State Competition. Two of them won at State and one has already played at Regionals in Hilton Head, SC (alas, they lost - but it was close!). If you have any questions about playing tennis or hiking in our area, just check with Roger!
