Realtors are Real Estate guru's, they know where all the most popular laces to live are, and what prices they can be purchased at. Real Estate Agency's must adhere to strict regulation.
The city that gave us Mardi Gras tries to be easy and accessible for businesses. New Orleans keeps local licensing to a minimum and leaves the majority of regulation to the state. Louisiana, on the other hand, requires many licenses in a diverse array of industries. New businesses must make sure they comply. While New Orleans often conjures up images of Mardi Gras and the culturally significant French Quarter and Bourbon Street, tourism isn't its only significant industry. New Orleans is in fact, one of the United States' energy industry centers housing oil refining and petrochemical production, a corporate base for onshore and offshore petroleum and natural gas production. Additionally, New Orleans remains a major port city and hub of trade and transportation.
