Louise Guido is an experienced real estate professional with BLU Realty Group.  A native New Yorker, she spent eight years as the broker owner of luxury firm Westcoast Realty of Florida. Known as the "social purpose" realtor, she has dedicated to her life to helping those less fortunate - particularly women and girls - become more empowered. During Hurricane Katrina in 2005, she mobilized her colleagues to deliver food and relief to victims, and also became a supporter of Girls, Inc. Louise's approach to life has always been to ‘lead with giving’. Her deep sense of empathy has served her well in real estate by always placing the needs of her clients first and foremost. She has lived on the Upper West Side for most of her life, and on Riverside Boulevard for the past nine years. Her broad knowledge of the entire city is unique in that she has watched the growth and evolution of New York that few others experience. When returning to New York in 2008, she established the Foundation for Social Change, a 501(c)(3) non-profit providing life and business skills training to girls and young women in poverty – both in the U.S. and abroad. (www.FoundationChange.org) A percentage of each commission she earns through sales and rentals goes to supporting the Foundation for Social Change education programs, or her clients may donate directly to the organization or social cause of their choice.
