About Me

Upon graduating from Tulane University Barbara Bedestani began working for five years in Mortgage Bond Trading and Financial Advising in New Orleans and New York City. In 2006, Barbara decided to move back to New Orleans and joined Coldwell Banker TEC Realtors as a licensed realtor. A consistent award winner with her local real estate board and company, Barbara was awarded the International President’s Circle award for her 2013 production, ranking her among the top 6% of Coldwell Banker’s 85,000 agents worldwide. Barbara was then recruited to Keller Williams in 2017 after numerous recognitions for her production and professionalism.

Barbara specializes in working with new construction, historic homes, relocation, condos and investment properties including 1031 Tax Exchange. She holds the CRS (Certified Residential Specialist) designation which is held by less than 1% of Realtors nationwide.

When Barbara isn’t assisting her clients in their decisions around buying or selling their home or investment property, she enjoys singing with the Truffle Honeys and volunteering with her children’s school.
