The top-producing Acadiana team brings 40 agents, bolstering Real’s presence in Louisiana
The Real Brokerage Inc. (NASDAQ: REAX), the fastest-growing publicly traded real estate brokerage, announced today that District South Real Estate Co., the Lafayette-based team serving Louisiana's Acadiana region, is the latest top-producing team to join the company. Led by Carrie Théard and Sean Hettich, District South brings 40 agents to Real. With the addition of District South, The Real Brokerage total agent count now exceeds 12,000.
“We are excited to welcome Carrie, Sean and the entire District South team to Real,” said Real President Sharran Srivatsaa. “Carrie and Sean share Real’s ‘Work Hard. Be Kind.’ mindset attracting top producers to their team who distinguish themselves through their professionalism and commitment to giving back to their community.”
After successful careers independently – Théard at a local boutique and Hettich as a top producer at a global brokerage – the pair joined forces in 2017 to form District South as a way to combine the best of what both business models have to offer. Since that time both have continued to rank among the state’s top-producing agents. District South has ranked among the top-producing teams in Louisiana, recording the highest per agent sales of any firm for the past five years. In 2022, District South completed 960 transactions, totaling nearly $252 million in sales.
“By joining Real, we are once again blending the best of both worlds,” Théard said. “Real offers us the opportunity to continue to offer what our agents value most, while also providing opportunities for building wealth long-term.”
Hettich said, “Real’s forward-thinking revenue model and culture of professionalism are what drew us in. CEO Tamir Poleg’s vision of agent quality and high professionalism mirrored what we have already achieved at the local level with District South. We love that our agents are now co-owners with us and we can grow our careers together.”
