Honoring A Family’s Beautiful Old Home

Posted by Julie Koppman on Wednesday, March 18th, 2020 at 3:30pm.

Ninh Tran, Rêve Realtors Agent, first met his client Rebecca when she was selling a piece of mid-century modern art online. To see it in person, he met her at the family home she’d grown up in Uptown on Cadiz St. and was instantly intrigued by its history. After a tour, Rebecca said she was thinking about selling the house, and Ninh said he’d be happy to help. Months later, Ninh listed the home – selling it in just six weeks, right before Mardi Gras 2020.

The beautiful old home had been in Rebecca’s family since 1965. (See the old photo below of her mother soon after they purchased it.) And though Rebecca had recently inherited it, she wanted a family with children to love it the way her family had. As it turns out, an interested young family created a video to persuade her that they were the family she was looking for, and Rebecca knew it was meant to be. Though selling was bittersweet, Rebecca chose to honor her family and the wonderful life they’d lived there by recreating the photo of her mother – looking ahead to what the future holds.

On working with Ninh, Rebecca says appreciatively, “He gave my listing personal attention and went above and beyond, handling every aspect of the sale.” Here’s to the next generation growing up in this amazing old home!
