Homes for Sale in the North Shore by Price

Life is Good on Lake Pontchartrain

There are a few reasons the North Shore is the fastest-growing area in Metro New Orleans: It's home to a top-rated school district, a beautiful pine forest, excellent restaurants and shopping centers, and homes that are larger and more affordable than the properties on the south shore. While the commute to communities on the southern shore of Lake Pontchartrain can be 30 to 80 minutes depending on weather and traffic, many clients enjoy the drive, taking time to relax and plan their day. Besides, the view of the lake from the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway is a view you'll love getting used to.

A Laid-Back Lifestyle

While the North Shore — which includes the towns of Covington, Mandeville, and Slidell — has all the amenities of a bustling suburb, the residents enjoy a quiet way of life away from the hustle and bustle of New Orleans. There are even waterfront homes on Lake Pontchartrain, perfect for a lakefront retreat.
