COVINGTON, La. – Gulf States Real Estate Companies has announced its expansion into Alabama. The company, founded by Mike Saucier, primarily operates in Louisiana and Mississippi and additionally provides project management and associated services nationally. Gulf States has teamed up with the Mobile, Ala.-based Holyfield Companies, which currently operate commercial and residential real estate offices as well as an established appraisal division. Donald and Ronnie Holyfield will continue to maintain their appraisal business under the Holyfield Company name as Gulf States absorbs the real estate operations.
In addition to commercial and residential real estate brokerage, Gulf States will also offer project and construction management, property management and development services. Of note, Gulf States led as project manager the post-Katrina redevelopment of the Louisiana Superdome in New Orleans. Gulf States handled the financial and physical oversight of what Saucier classified as “putting Humpty Dumpty back together again,” to ready the facility for the Saints comeback on ESPN Monday Night Football. Gulf States was involved in an associated major real estate transaction which resulted in a long-term agreement with the Saints to stay in New Orleans well beyond its initial five-year commitment required by the NFL.
“Now more than ever, the Gulf South is becoming a highly sought-after area to live, work, and play,” said Saucier, who cites outdoor recreational activities along with good schools and affordable real estate as features of the area.
“We are excited to expand and create an outstanding team in association with Mike and the Gulf States Real Estate professionals,” said Donald Holyfield. “Merging our businesses was the next logical step to offer our clients more extensive services while continuing to provide the personalized attention and local market knowledge that we are known for in Alabama and the Florida panhandle.”
