Betsy Birdsong
Associate Broker/Team Leader


I founded The Birdsong Group to be a dynamic boutique 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 20 years starting as an investor buying and renovating houses. Ten years ago, I decided to become a Realtor full-time and to build a unique company based on the Team concept and bring a greater degree of professionalism to the Real Estate industry in our area.


I started The Birdsong Group because I believe that we are called to be Expert Advisors in our community and to provide customer satisfaction and service above the rest!

Michael Kaplan
REALTOR, 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 home buyers 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 to make him an excellent advocate for homebuyers; so let him help you find your next home!
