When Holly isn’t out selling (and ‘outselling’) real estate, family keeps her plenty busy. She’s got three kids (Ali,15, Landen, 12, and Mila, 8) and a fiancé, Ryan. Spare time is spent vacationing, hanging on the patio with friends, and taking in all the kid’s sports and other activities.
What makes Holly tick? Her love for real estate. Holly says, “my job doesn’t feel like a job, which is the best feeling ever! Meeting new people, exploring new properties and getting to be a part of such a big experience in someone’s life is a few of my motivations and loves of the job.”

Hailing from Crowley, Louisiana, Mechelle is a go-getter who puts family first. Mechelle was a homemaker and wife for many years. Then, through life’s ups and downs, found herself in a position to put her skills to work and provide for herself and her children. She got her start in the hotel business and before long she was supervising Choice Hotels. After about 4 years in the hotel business, Mechelle decided to venture out and try her hand at property management. Huff Management quickly hired her on and the rest, as they say, is history.
Always looking to enrich and improve her skill set, Mechelle is excited to work with the team at BG Realty. Mechelle has a 28-year old son, a 23-year old daughter, and three grandchildren. Cajun cooking is at the center of her hobbies, as nothing makes her happier than the smiles from friends and family during one of her tasty (but spicy!) Sunday dinners.
Meeting different people and learning about different heritages is what keeps the job interesting for Mechelle. However, the real prize is when she helps people find a comfortable place to call home.

Favorite scripture: Isaiah 40:31
but those who hope in the Lord

they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
