A REALTOR® is a member of the National Association of REALTORS® and subscribes to its strict Code of Ethics.
The Code establishes time-honored and baseline principles that come from the collective experiences of REALTORS® since the Code of Ethics was first established in 1913. Those principles can be loosely defined as:
Loyalty to clients;
Fiduciary (legal) duty to clients;
Cooperation with competitors;
Truthfulness in statements and advertising; and non-interference in exclusive relationships that other REALTORS® have with their clients.
Born and raised in Houma, LA, Cory's love for Louisiana drove him to pursue higher education at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge. Upon graduating from the E.J. Ourso College of Business in 2013 with summa cum laude honors and a Bachelor of Science in Finance, he accepted a position with ExxonMobil in Houston, TX as a global financial analyst. Three years later, Cory was promoted to global auditor for the company's refining and supply business. After spending four productive years with ExxonMobil, Cory and his new wife, Mary Alfortish Cheramie, decided to switch career paths and move back home to pursue their passion for real estate in New Orleans by joining the Pivach Real Estate family as agents!
Through his prior work experience as a global financial analyst and auditor, Cory was able to support an exceptionally diverse group of clients, both culturally and geographically. The learnings acquired from that exposure allowed him to develop the skills necessary to provide a professional, organized, and personally tailored experience for the clients he now represents in real estate transactions.
An active member of the New Orleans Metropolitan Association of REALTORS® (NOMAR) and New Orleans Real Estate Investors Association (NOREIA), Cory recognizes the complexity of real estate transactions and strives to help his clients in making informed decisions through prompt, clear communication and thorough analysis. He also aims to know his clients on a personal basis, and he sincerely enjoys maintaining the friendships he's formed by doing so!
In addition to his passion for real estate, Cory also enjoys giving back to his community. He is a member of several young professional and volunteer groups in the Greater New Orleans area, including the Young Leadership Council (YLC).
