Donna Whalen Little

Tenant Representation



Donna joined Corporate Realty in 2013 as its only broker specializing in exclusive Tenant Representation. Placing clients in offices in New Orleans (and sub-market Metairie), Baton Rouge, and Lafayette has resulted in millions of square feet of successful transactions over a more-than-thirty-year period in commercial real estate. Through Donna’s association with Corporate Realty, and her reputation and repeated clients over the years, she participates in many co-broker transactions involving national brokerage firms without branches in the New Orleans area.

Because of beginning her career as a landlord’s representative during the aggressive development of New Orleans in the late 1980s, she has exceptional insight into lease negotiations, especially benefiting tenants. She has successfully represented numerous local and national law firms, such as Irwin, Fritchie, Urquhart & Moore; Patrick Miller; Kelly Kronenberg; Forman, Watkins & Krutz; Mouledoux Bland, Legrand & Brackett; Looper Goodwin; and Baker Donelson; and Akerman. She has also represented prestigious corporate entities such as UBS Financial Services, Modjeski & Masters, Liberty Mutual, Aetna, State Farm, and iHeart Media.

Donna is a New Orleans native and attended Loyola University. She is a member of the New Orleans Metropolitan Association of Realtors (NOMAR) and the Audubon Area Neighborhood Association.  She was formerly a member of the Kingsley House, a United Way agency, and was named a YWCA Woman in Business Role Model. She is currently the Chair of the Advisory Board of City Year New Orleans.
