Young Professionals

Downtown is THE spot for young professionals. It’s the heart of the social scene with more concerts, festivals and great restaurants than anywhere in northern Louisiana. It also has the densest concentration of affordable apartments and condos to walk to all that socializing.

Ellerbe Woods


Ellerbe Woods is one of the schmanciest neighborhoods for families in Shreveport. Filled with big beautiful homes, towering pines lining the streets and wonderful yards for those kiddos to run around. A slightly less pretentious choice is the Broadmoor neighborhood. Also filled with tall pines, and magnolias but they surround quaint and comfortable homes from the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s that are more affordable options for younger families. It’s the largest neighborhood in Shreveport and has its own shopping and dining and great schools to choose from.

The Crossing at Wemple


Shreveport is ideal for retirees due to the low cost of living and warm climate. There are a couple great 55+ communities just a couple miles outside city limits. The Crossing at Wemple, and Cypress Bend are perfect spots for those looking for nice new homes, amenities like pools, walking trails and community centers and good neighborhood vibes. Big traditional neighborhoods like Broadmoor are also favored due to reasonable costs and close proximity to shopping and restaurants.
