Mike’s Story

Mike is the only residential agent in the 101-year history of Latter & Blum to reach TOP 10 highest producing agents status within the company during their first year in real estate. Accordingly, he was awarded Latter & Blums’ Rookie of the Year award for 2016, as well as a place among the Top of the Latter (top 30 within the company) and was an Elite Award winner, the top sales award recognized by Latter & Blum.

Verderosa is an active resident of Algiers Point, where he served as the vice president of operations for the Algiers Point Association for both 2015 and 2016, and in 2015, sat on the advisory board for the Old Algiers Main Street Corporation, as well as the board of Confetti Kids, an Algiers Point neighborhood group focused on developing parks and playgrounds. He also represented Algiers Point on the Algiers Neighborhood Presidents’ Council (ANPC). Verderosa volunteered for four years as a one of the original administrators of the Facebook-based neighborhood group, Pointe Algerines Unite, and has volunteered with both Friends of the Ferry and Friends of the Hubbell Library.

Prior to becoming a licensed realtor, Mike managed a team of environmental and historic preservation consultants for FEMA/Department of Homeland Security in New Orleans, Louisiana, in their recovery efforts post-Hurricane Katrina: his team of architects, architectural historians, archaeologists, and environmental/wetlands specialists successfully reviewed over 50,000 properties within the State of Louisiana for which federal funding was sought.

Upon demobilizing from the Louisiana Recovery Office, Mike was promoted to National Lead for his firm’s historic preservation support to DHS, and he managed federal deployment requests and project oversight for up to 320 professional employees, nationwide, for federal project assignments with the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Defense.

Mike holds a Master’s in Preservation Studies from Tulane University, where he earned the first known 4.0 in the history of the program. As an undergrad, he studied Architecture at The Catholic University of America in Washington, DC, and matriculated with a B.A. in Urban and Regional Planning from the University at Albany.

Verderosa first moved to Algiers Point in 2004 while a grad student at Tulane, and has recently renovated and moved into a City of New Orleans individually listed historic landmark on the border of Algiers Point. An ongoing project, he resides there with his four rescued pitbull mixes, Betty Ford, Woodreaux Wilson, Ladybird Johnson, and Jack Kennedy Verderosa.
