ABOUT OUR COMMUNITY
The Baton Rouge Metropolitan real estate market consists of the eight parishes surrounding Baton Rouge, and includes the cities of Gonzales, Prairieville, Geismar, Zachary, Jackson , St. Francisville, Denham Springs, Walker, Port Allen, Addis, Brusly, and New Roads. Real estate in this area has recovered nicely from the last recession and is thriving at this time. There is much growth in the residential sector, massive expansions in the industrial field, as well as new developments in the medical, film, research, technology and business community.
While you are here for those job interviews, home search trips, or just visiting, we hope you will enjoy all of the things that will help you make that decision to call this “home”. Be sure to experience the delicious food for which we are so well known, the festivities, fun, recreational activities, and the Southern hospitality of your new neighbors. That is why the first French you will learn is “laissez le bon temps roulez”, let the good times roll.
And don’t forget our state slogan is “Sportsman’s Paradise” and it truly is just that, with our bayous, swamps, and rivers for the fishermen and water enthusiasts, prime hunting land for those outdoorsmen, and one of the best areas in the country for golf courses, because of our great weather.
Take a step back in time and tour one of the grandiose plantations, or if you prefer something more cultural visit our state capitol which is the tallest of any in the United States, the historical old state capitol, various museums, the planetarium, performing art center, USS Kidd, a World War II ship stationed here in the capital city, and many other interesting sites.
Because so many different flags have flown over this area, you will find much cultural diversity, a friendly atmosphere and entrepreneurial spirit. And, no, you will not see alligators roaming around at night! Visit today and call this “Your” home tomorrow. You will certainly find “ joie de vivre”, the joy of living, here in Baton Rouge, which means “red stick”, so named by the explorers who first arrived here.
