Donald Julien & Associates, Inc. was founded by Donald & Elaine Julien in their dining room in 1979 and has grown to include offices in New Orleans and Baton Rouge.
Donald & Elaine Julien are the proud parents of 5, grandparents of 17 and Maw-Maw and Paw-Paw to 8 great-grandchildren. They are originally from Donaldsonville, LA where they met and married over 50 years ago. They re-located to New Orleans where Donald graduated from Xavier University and began a 20 year teaching career at L.B. Landry High School. Elaine at first a housewife and manager of their grocery store, later became a real estate agent. Noticing that minority homeownership in New Orleans was lacking, they started the company to educate and open opportunities for the many families who would become the 1st generation of homeowners. We are still making homeowners of those original clients' children and grandchildren.
In 2010, after a long illness, Donald retired from the company and turned the reins over to his youngest son Chip. Chip has enjoyed managing the office with many of the agents who watched him grow up. His background in computer technology has allowed him to continue his parents quest for creating real estate opportunities and maintaining a reputation of sales excellence and growth. We also operate a successful Investment Property Management division.
Donald Julien & Associates, Inc. maintains long standing relationships with banks, Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae, HUD, U.S. Marshals and VA to bring affordable real estate to our clientele and give options to homeowners facing foreclosure. With our vast audience of ready Buyers, we have been an excellent resource for our Listing clients to sell their homes quickly and for top dollar. We maintain great professional rapport with agents throughout the region who help sell our properties because of the knowledgeable Agents at Donald Julien & Assoc., Inc. and positive sales experience for which we are known.
