Featured Agents

Betsy Birdsong

Associate Broker/Team Leader


I founded The Birdsong Group to be a dynamic Real Estate Team based on expert information, integrity and innovation. We offer comprehensive real estate solutions for home buyers, investors and house sellers in the Greater New Orleans area. I have been active in the real estate arena for 19 years starting as an investor buying and renovating houses. In 2010 I decided to become a Realtor full time and to build a unique company based on the team concept with the purpose of bringing a greater degree of professionalism to the Real Estate industry in our area.

Amy Troxel



Amy first started working in the housing industry as a Social Worker in 2013, where she matched clients with landlords and secured apartments for at risk clients. This is when she first learned how finding the right place to live can inspire and change lives. In 2017, after witnessing the power in obtaining a stable place to live, Amy transitioned into real estate by investing in property and becoming a landlord, focusing on giving options to those less fortunate. By 2019 Amy obtained her license as a Realtor to continue providing the best housing options possible for her clients and joined The Birdsong Group shortly thereafter. During off-hours, you can find Amy indulging in the finest New Orleans made ice cream or swing dancing to the best jazz in town.

Michael Kaplan

Buyer's Specialist


Michael obtained his real estate license in 2015 and joined the Birdsong Group shortly thereafter in 2016 as a buyer’s specialist. His experience in real estate far predates his license. He has been active in the New Orleans real estate market since 2002 as an investor and landlord. His background as an electrical contractor, renovator, and builder makes him ideally suited for first-time and experienced homebuyers looking for their perfect house or investors looking for their next deal. Originally from Brooklyn, NY, Michael moved to New Orleans in 2000 and is intimately familiar with neighborhoods throughout New Orleans. He loves “kicking the tires” on a property and is not afraid to climb into attics and crawl under houses to make sure his customers are getting the right deal. His passion for real estate, commitment to the best interest of his clients, and love of making a deal come together make him an excellent advocate for homebuyers; so let him help you find your next home!

Brianna Nowlin

Buyer's Specialist

License Number: 0995689239

Brianna has been with The Birdsong Group (formerly Value Plus Realty) since 2013. After enjoying two years of real estate marketing, Brianna decided to take her love of real estate to the next level and became a Buyer's Specialist. Originally from Dallas, she moved to New Orleans in 2007 to receive a BA and BS from Tulane University. Her favorite thing to do in New Orleans is to play tourist, which includes going on swamp tours, strolling through the Quarter, trying new restaurants, and taking part in festivals and parades. "My number one priority is to help you find the home of your dreams. I am committed to providing you with the best possible service and will work hard to ensure you have a well-informed, rewarding, and enjoyable home buying experience."
