Chad Ortte

Born and raised along the bayous and sugarcane fields of South Louisiana, Chad grew up designing and building things, and was taught at an early age the value of hard work and persistence. He graduated from Cathedral Carmel School, Saint Thomas More Catholic High School and then from Louisiana State University.


Chad began working in commercial real estate while in college and after graduation became a licensed agent and soon a top producer and development partner.  In 2010 he became an independent broker, leading strategic investments, complex acquisitions and creative developments while representing some of the most active and capable real estate investors and developers in Louisiana.


Known as a trusted source of knowledge and opportunity, with an uncanny ability to connect with anyone at any level, Chad maintains close and effective relationships with diverse groups of people.  He leads with an honest work ethic and a creative value-add approach to every transaction, project or partnership, with the ultimate goal of building long-term, successful projects and relationships.

He is Louisiana proud and passionate about connecting people, economic development and creating places that inspire happy living.  He lives in Lafayette and has a German Shepherd named Jolie.
