Eleanor Hohnstein is a licensed REALTOR® in the state of Louisiana and joined McEnery Residential in the summer of 2019. Residential renovation and interior design have always been a big part of Eleanor’s life – her parents, Ann & David Williams, renovated several homes throughout her childhood, two of which are now on the National Register of Historic Places in Orleans Parish.
After moving back to New Orleans from New York in 2014, Eleanor and her mother launched a boutique residential renovation and design firm, WilliamsWorks New Orleans, LLC, with a commitment to provide clients with the best possible design solutions and positive renovation experiences. In 2017, they purchased and completely renovated a classic creole cottage on Camp Street which was published in the Spring 2018 issue of the Cottage Journal.
In addition to her work in real estate and renovation, Eleanor has over 13 years of marketing experience. Currently, she is the Brand Manager of French Market® Coffee and Specialty Foods at Reily Foods Company here in New Orleans. Some of her notable accomplishments in this role include leading the product development and launch of the French Market® Coffee Cold Brew Concentrate product line, along with re-positioning the French Market® Coffee brand to drive growth with a younger consumer base.
She earned a B.A. from Washington and Lee University and a M.B.A. from Vanderbilt University – Owen Graduate School of Management with a concentration in Marketing, Strategy, and Brand Management. Eleanor’s background in marketing combined with her passion and experience in residential renovation are tremendous assets to clients in the real estate market. This unique skill set enables her to see what others don’t – potential.
