Flavin Realty Lake Charles

3221 Ryan St. Suite A
Lake Charles, LA 70601

As a native of New Orleans and Lafayette, I am now proud to call Lake Charles home.  My husband and I moved to the area in 1991 when he opened a local petrochemical service company.  While my primary job was being a mom to our two daughters, I worked from home as a legal transcriptionist and actually transcribed an FBI wiretap as part of a case against a drug cartel.  In 1997, I was chosen by the The Times of Lake Charles as “40 Under 40” for my work with the Calcasieu Parish School Board in their effort to fund a middle and high school magnate program.  I became a licensed Louisiana Notary Public and had the opportunity to work with various lenders in closing refinance mortgages.  I fell in love with real estate and began work to become a certified home stager. It didn’t take me long to realize what I really wanted was to be a Realtor.


I have worked with Flavin Realty, Inc. since becoming a licensed Realtor and have never looked back. With honesty and integrity at the core of all Flavin does, it’s easy to understand my loyalty. I love working with people and offer buyers and sellers of residential and commercial real estate a strategic yet personable approach to meet their goals. My background as a Notary Public provides me the ability to understand and explain the contractual information that can be intimidating to many. Having a background in home staging, I offer sellers the insight necessary to increase marketability of their home with little or no out-of-pocket expense.  I pride myself in being a full-service realtor who will stop at nothing to see my client’s vision realized.


I am thrilled to have the opportunity to volunteer my time to our community and real estate industry. I currently serve on the MLS Committee for the Greater Southern MLS.  I sit on the Board of Directors for the Alliance for Positive Growth and serve on various committees. I was selected to serve as a Realtor representative on the Sasol Community Advisory Panel (CAP). 


I am dedicated to continuing my education to better serve my clients.  I am a Certified Target Marketing Specialist, Relocation Specialist Designation, as well as completion of numerous real estate courses. 


Whenever I’m not working, I love reading, playing the piano, watching sports (Go Saints! Go Tigers!) and spending as much time as possible with my family.


Whatever you do -- Don’t make a move without me!
