Barbara Ducote

Business Broker

About Me

Barbara Ducote is a Business Broker with Sunbelt Business Brokers of New Orleans. She has resided on the Northshore in Slidell, Louisiana for more than 35 years. Barbara studied Business and Marketing at Southeastern Louisiana University. Sudden family events thrust her into the role of owner/operator of a convenience store and gas station. The store had a Crispy Crunchy Fried Chicken franchise deli and a staff of 11 employees. She ran the business successfully for about two years, until Hurricane Katrina, when she decided to sell. Barbara then began her 12 year career in the real estate Industry as a licensed mortgage loan originator. During this period, Barbara quickly grew to become a top producing loan originator. She has spent many hours teaching continuing education courses to realtors on the Northshore. Barbara has also been a guest speaker at realtor events regarding changes in the mortgage industry. She has also coordinated and hosted 300+ open houses for referral partners as well. After 10 years of originating mortgages, Barbara moved toward investing in real estate, rather than helping others to do so. Becoming a business broker was the logical next step. In the past, she has been a member of the Chamber of Commerce, BNI, NABOR, and WCR. On a personal level, Barbara is an extremely proud mother of two amazing boys. Her free time is spent with her family at the boys year-round sporting events, and hanging out at their cabin in the woods in Natchez, Mississippi. She enjoys fishing, riding four-wheelers, camping, hunting, cooking, and making memories.
