A native of Chicago IL and a resident of New York City for almost ten years, Roel and his wife Valorie decided to move to New Orleans in the fall of 2009 and quickly fell in love with the city. He has worked with art galleries both as an independent curator and as a member of the Board of Directors for the May Gallery and Residency.
Roel is an avid Chicago Bears fan and you can find him at the Half Moon Bar on Sundays during football season, screaming at the television in both English and Tagalog.
Roel lives Uptown with his wife, cat and a 150 pound St. Bernard named Bella.
Roel is the best! From the moment we walked in the first house we toured with him he made us feel at ease and comfortable. He was patient, and listened to what we were looking for (not to mention fun!). With him we found our dream home- and it didn't take long! We liked him so much we decided to use him to sell our old place. Although the house just went on the market, we have every reason to believe Roel will be fantastic on this side of the process as well. Very satisfied! Roel is the best! ~ Katherine and Joe
