Mike Bridges is Flip The Quarter. He has what you might call a “knack” or a unique ability to see past the wear of time, past years of neglect, and past what many simply overlook.
Hailing from the small town of Belzoni, Mississippi, Mike studied journalism at the University of Mississippi before moving to Houston, Texas where he spent 30 years in real estate. A lifelong fondness for New Orleans made an opportunity to venture into its’ real estate market an easy decision for him. The city’s unique architecture and colorful history provide ample inspiration for each of his projects. Using an instinctive creative skill set and eye for dazzling design, he fearlessly blends old and new materials. While truly distinctive, his homes reflect their heritage and Mike’s commitment to using as many locally sourced materials as possible. The marriage of things like barge board and chrome may seem unlikely… but wait until you see it.
The stunning results are now eagerly sought by both locals and visitors seeking their piece of the Crescent City.
Flip The Quarter was established as an antidote to the ordinary. No questionable appliances, cast-off furnishings, or faded Mardi Gras beads here, ‘cher. You never know what to expect because after all, this ain’t suburbia.
