The professionals at Latter & Blum Inc. Realtors have been serving the New Orleans community since 1916. Our real estate agency began almost a century ago when Harry Latter and Joseph E. Blum founded a commercial real estate company. Latter & Blum has since expanded and branched out to include residential sales, remaining in the Latter family for 70 years. In 1986 the company was purchased by Robert W. Merrick, a nationally respected appraiser and broker who restructured the organization. Since then, we have expanded and merged with C.J. Brown Realtors, Noles-Frye Realty, Van Eaton & Romero, and acquired ERA Moffett Realty and Patterson Real Estate Agency Inc.
Latter & Blum Inc. was founded in 1916 by two young entrepreneurs, Harry Latter and Joseph E. Blum, in the flourishing port city of New Orleans. In its early days, the company specialized in commercial real estate, but later branched out into residential sales.
Latter & Blum remained in the Latter family for 70 years, sustaining a strong foothold in the real estate industry. This family tradition helped lay the groundwork that allowed Latter & Blum to flourish into the largest and most successful real estate company in New Orleans.
Robert W. Merrick purchased Latter & Blum in 1986. A visionary and nationally respected appraiser and broker, Merrick restructured the organization, and in ten short years had lead Latter & Blum in an incredible growth cycle.
In 1993, Latter & Blum expanded into the Mississippi Gulf Coast market and then, in January 1995 merged with the largest residential real estate company in Baton Rouge, LA, C.J. Brown REALTORS and together created Louisiana's first and only $1 billion real estate Company.
In December 2009 Noles-Frye Realty the largest independent real estate company in the Central Louisiana area merged with Latter & Blum Inc.
In December 2012, Van Eaton & Romero, the residential real estate market leader in Lafayette LA merged with Latter & Blum increasing the size of the residential Real Estate companies of Latter & Blum Inc. by approximately 28 percent, ranking it the 34th largest brokerage in the United States by unit sales.
In August 2014 Lake Charles-based ERA Moffett Realty was acquired, giving Latter & Blum Inc a strong presence in the Lake Charles area and increasing the size of LATTER & BLUM’s residential operations to 29 offices with more than 1,400 Agents across the Gulf South region.
In December 2014, our commercial division expanded once again with the addition of NAI Lake Charles.
