The Rhodes' Brothers

James and Justin were born and raised in the New Orleans area but settled in Natchitoches in 2007 working as construction managers and engineers for a local construction company. It wasn’t long after their relocation to Natchitoches that the two decided to redirect their focus to the real estate industry. In 2010 they began this endeavor with the creation of Rhodes Properties and Development and the purchase of a single family rental property. Since that time the pair has worked diligently to expand the company(s) both in geographical areas and services offered while maintaining their core values of service, quality, and commitment.
