Olivia K Byers
Olivia K. Byers specializes in residential real estate, specializing in successions, and is based out of the Title Stream Metairie Office. Olivia’s primary focus is residential and commercial real estate closings for properties throughout southeast Louisiana, but she also handles all matters ancillary to the title process, such as reviewing successions, community property settlements, drafting restrictions, boundary disputes, etc.
Before a potential new file is even opened, Olivia is already skimming the land records for general title conflicts so that she can brief clients ahead of time on what to expect through out the process. No two transactions are ever the same in real estate, and Olivia enjoys identifying and suggesting solutions on issues before clients even realize there is a problem.
A native of Baton Rouge, Olivia received her B.S. and Juris Doctorate from Louisiana State University. She has two Fantasy Football championships, but has lost count on how many times she has been to Disney World; and yes, she will return your calls to ensure the happiest place on Earth is at her closing table.
