Realtor and Friend for Life

by Blake Hanna

I've always enjoyed making new friends anywhere, anytime. Whether it was through my musical endeavors, school, or in random places, I've always liked meeting new people and learning about them. Being in the Real Estate business has given me the unique opportunity of meeting new people all the time as well as helping them with one of the most important decisions of their lives. Throughout the process you get to know your clients and learn all about them and they get to learn about you. No client I work with is just another "deal." The look they have when they get the keys to their home is a great reward. Through staying in touch, I've hung out with, attended events, played on sports teams and even been invited to weddings of my past clients. Not only do I strive to be their Realtor for life, but also their friend.

The one place we have had a hard time getting a reservation since it moved to it's new location on Perkins Road is Galatoires Bistro.  Finally had a chance to eat lunch there today.  They have a great lunch special - a 3 course meal for $19!!!!!  it was great.  From their web site, here is some history of the eatery:

Whether preparing your palette for an enjoyable meal or unwinding after a long day, patrons can pair exquisite bar delights with hand-crafted signature cocktails at the Galatoire’s Bistro bar.

Adorned with gold trimmings, patterned tiled flooring and crisp, white table cloths, Galatoire’s Bistro features a 150-seat dining room and two luxurious private dining spaces that can seat up to 64 guests. What 225 magazine named “Best French Dining in Baton Rouge,” Galatoire’s Bistro serves traditional Louisiana classics daily, such as Crabmeat Maison, Chicken Clemenceau and Turtle Soup au Sherry. Galatoire’s Bistro also offers exclusive featured dishes including BBQ Shrimp and Grits, Steak au Poivre and Grilled Gulf Provencal – all meticulously prepared by Executive Chef Kelley McCann.
