(New Orleans, LA) Latter & Blum Inc., founded in New Orleans in 1916, was recently named to the esteemed New Orleans City Business list of the region’s fastest growing companies.
Latter & Blum Inc. captured the #4 spot on the list, an achievement based on a number of factors, according to Latter & Blum President, Rick Haase. “Not only has the company reported a 53.7 percent revenue growth over the past three years, but the first three months of 2013 accounted for the second-best first quarter in the company’s nearly 100-year history”, said Haase.
The U.S. Census Bureau's most recent figures showed New Orleans as the Fastest Growing City in America. As a result, Latter & Blum agents have increased productivity thanks to a continuous repopulation of the New Orleans region following the devastation of Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Haase said a significant growth in newly established industry and technology (and the coordinated expansion in the housing market) has also added to the impressive figures of growth for the Latter & Blum Family of Companies in 2013.
Haase also pointed to recent acquisitions and mergers with several healthy Louisiana Real Estate companies and an invigorated coordination with Latter & Blum's Essential Mortgage Company as additional reasons for the positive and encouraging figures on all accounts.
