Marseah DelatteMarseah Delatte, Managing Member of NOLA RP
Marseah “Marcy” Delatte, is a native New Orleanian and dedicated mother to 3 sons, whose family roots run deep and whose beginnings are founded in the Hollygrove neighborhood. As the daughter of a successful 3rd generation real estate developer/contractor, Marcy not only inherited exposure to real estate, but also developed an innate ability stemming from her sincere interest, knowledge, and experience in the industry.

After graduating from Johnson and Wales University, she returned home and quickly began applying the knowledge gained in college to her father’s construction business while running the day to day operations of the office. After 5 years solely dedicated to the business, she began contracting her services to others in the profit and nonprofit sector. This included serving as project manager for Community Volunteers Association “Senior Care Program” which provided funding for elderly home improvements. Marcy managed all aspects of the program by securing funding, planning, directing, and coordinating activities for the program’s construction projects.

As a licensed realtor and developer, Marcy is often sought after for the advantage of being represented by someone who “knows and lives” in the community. Her industry knowledge extends to building construction, design and pre-market renovations.

Marcy is passionate these days about making what others believe can’t be revived, live again. Historic Restoration is her niche and she has a commitment to excellence in all she undertakes

New Orleans Restoration Properties’ Mission is to contribute to the Revitalization of Historic Neighborhoods by providing high quality new and restored properties for consumers and stakeholders to participate in neighborhood redevelopment through purchasing and renting of formerly blighted or underutilized properties and vacant land.

Our team of aggressive professionals take pride in every aspect of our work and are driven by a higher calling to perform every task with excellence. Whether that task is picking up trash in the neighborhood or overseeing a multi-million dollar development.

We are committed to the goal at hand and take extreme ownership in our responsibilities and commitments to all parties involved. Our team is passionate about training and mentoring future leaders of the company within a highly motivated team atmosphere that inspires entrepreneurial thinking and collaboration in efforts, a sense of ownership, and unity among our people. For this reason, our team will continue to spark an urban renewal throughout neighborhoods that encourage residents to invest in their community not only monetarily but also socially, and culturally.

We and our community partners unite our efforts to make New Orleans a better place to live. We will be a part of the solution for the city of New Orleans concerning the issues of blight and crime. Our investment efforts are strategic in location as we aim to improve the quality of life for not only the residents and small business owners in a specific property but for the neighborhood blocks themselves. Therefore, we focus on facilitating the purchasing of multiple properties in the same target neighborhood and are committed to not leaving any blight behind.

Our goal is to work within our niche of sustainable mixed-use development and historic property development for the end-use of hotel, commercial, market, and affordable housing.
