A native of Louisiana, Beau Tanner is originally from Baton Rouge and attended college in there. He decided to make a change and moved to New Orleans, finding that he loved the city after visiting his sister who lived there.
His background is in construction and construction management, and he worked a variety of construction jobs throughout high school and college. He earned his real estate license during his junior year of college and worked in commercial real estate after graduation. As he explored career paths and business opportunities, Beau centered on home inspections. He spoke with a number of real estate agents to identify top home inspectors in New Orleans, and Tom Axelrad’s name was the one everyone mentioned. After meeting Tom and learning about the business, Beau earned his license and subsequently joined Axelrad & Associates Home Inspections.
Beau appreciates the flexibility the job allows and the opportunity to see so many historical homes from the foundation up. His love of history and architecture come together in many of the homes, some of which date from the early 1800s. It’s rewarding for Beau to help people who may not know much about construction and help them understand the details of the property they are considering buying from the foundation up. For most people, this is the most significant purchase they will ever make, and he takes pride in helping them make an informed decision.
When he’s not inspecting homes, Beau loves spending time outside, grilling crawfish, and getting out on the water near his home on the coast. He especially loves fishing and has a 20-foot center-console bay boat. His favorite fish is a redfish, popular in Louisiana. It’s fun to catch, putting up a good fight and requiring skill to bring in.
