Athena is delighted to welcome veteran agent Lauren Serio to our team!
For Lauren, there’s something special that makes a house a home. Sometimes, it’s a simple fireplace or circle driveway, other times it’s the hidden potential and excitement of what could be created. Lauren is eager and determined to help her clients with buying or listing their homes.
Lauren grew up in Metairie and graduated from Ridgewood High School. She then went to culinary school and worked at Emeril’s, Muriel’s, and John Besh’s Luke. For success in these high-caliber restaurants, she had to show up with a game plan, communicate effectively, and stay calm under pressure — all skills that have helped her greatly in her real estate career. She started as a realtor in Georgia, working under a high-volume broker that averaged eight listings per day. She recently returned home to New Orleans, after seven years in the Georgia mountains.
Lauren co-owns Mountain Media, a digital media marketing company, with her husband. She’s a skilled marketer with access to the best software and tools, and the marketing she provides for her listing clients is second-to-none.
Lauren lives in Metairie with her husband, Scott, their two children, Hudson and Penelope, and two dogs, Abita and Dooley. She is a proud supporter of the Ronald McDonald House Charity, whose mission and service has directly impacted her own family.
As a mom of two little ones, Lauren knows that home is where life happens and is honored to play a small role in helping her clients on their journey to finding a home. In her free time, she loves to play licks on her saxophone and coordinate kitchen dance parties.
