SVN|Graham, Langlois & Legendre, a Baton Rouge commercial real estate firm, has opened an office in the New Orleans area to broaden its services.

SVN|Gulf Partners is open at 139 Enterprise Drive in Gretna. Jeff Wilke, who has worked in the New Orleans commercial real estate market since 2000, is the managing director of the office.

Ben Graham, managing director of SVN|Graham, Langlois & Legendre, said because of the opportunities in New Orleans, it was time to expand into the market.

“New Orleans is a commercial real estate market full of possibilities, and it takes a firm with local knowledge and a platform based on maximum exposure for clients to experience its full potential,” Wilke said.
