Meet Chris Gerarve

Agent, Community Crusader


Nice to Meet You

For Chris, real estate is all about community. He attributes his strong family, tradition, and community values to growing up in Harahan amongst a large Italian family and a tight-knit group of friends and neighbors he calls 'framily.' Chris and his "framily" enjoyed spending Mardi Gras together at the same uptown corner each year (St Charles and Peniston) and tailgating at LSU Football games in Baton Rouge. 


"I am who I am today because of my community. I strongly feel that real estate is rooted in a strong sense of community, whether professional or personal." 


Thus, acareer helping people find their own version of home and community comes naturally to Chris. 


"Growing up in New Orleans, there aren't any two neighborhoods that are exactly the same. As a real estate agent, I help people explore everything inside and out! "


Family is the cornerstone of Chris's world, providing support, laughter, and motivation. Chris is driven to provide for them and to show his son Luca that anything is possible with determination and hard work. His dream of "arriving" includes not only professional recognition but also giving back to his community, particularly in rebuilding St. Bernard Parish, a place Chris feels is often underestimated and overlooked by the Greater Metro Area Population.


Chris's adventurous spirit extends beyond his career aspirations. A self-proclaimed movie, music, and video game nerd, he can't help but enjoy integrating pop culture into his daily interactions and his content, too. He also enjoys sharing his love for LSU, the Saints, the Las Vegas Golden Knights, and - what he describes as - a bittersweet relationship with professional baseball. Above all, Chris dreams of traveling the world with his wife and Luca, sharing with him the boundless wonders beyond their New Orleans home.
