Welcome, I’m so glad you’re here! My name is Emily Waguespack and I am a licensed Louisiana REALTOR®.  I love my job and gain so much joy from helping people find their dream home! 

It's so important to LOVE your house and really make it a home.

I’m here to help with the fun stuff like home decor and the not so fun stuff like home maintenance! It is essential for your comfort and for future resale value to take care of your home. Purchasing a home is the biggest investment you will make and I want you to succeed!  

I am a 30-something wife to Ryan, mom to Kellen and have been a homeowner for 5 years.

I love my family and my friends and I don’t know where I would be without them!

Take a look around and find the answers to loving your home.

Cheers, Em
