Real Estate Agency. Mr. J. C. Nickerson has opened a real estate agency as may be seen on this page of The Gazette. Mr. Nickerson will give much attention to the business of selling real estate and will do all in his power to bring the great advantage of this parish within the knowledge of home-seekers. Those who have property for sale will do well to communicate with Mr. Nickerson. He will defray all expenses of advertising and will charge only a reasonable commission. The more property Mr. Nickerson will have on his list the easier it will be for him to suit prospective buyers.
 
A progressive town can not get along without a live real estate agency, and for that reason The Gazette is pleased to note that Mr. Nickerson has decided to engage in that line of business.  Lafayette Gazette 2/16/1901. 





Dr. G. A. Martin recently purchased from Mrs. J. A. Veazey, a lot of ground on Lincoln ave., measuring 45 x 125 feet, on which he intends building a residence and (unreadable word) at an early date. Laf. Adv. 2/17/1894.


The corner lot near the courthouse, owned by Mr. Chas. A. Mouton, has been bought by Sheriff Broussard, who has had some repairs made to the buildings which will be offered for rent. Laf. Gaz. 2/19/1898.




A BIG DEAL.
 

Sheriff Broussard and Harry Durke Sell 846 Acres of Land for $21.50.
 

 Sheriff Broussard returned from Abbeville Wednesday where he had gone to sell a portion of the rice land owned by him and Mr. H. M. Durke. The day before Sheriff Broussard and Mr. Durke closed a deal, selling 846 acres to Wesley Shriefer and J. T. Alvez, of Illinois, for $21,150. The rice lands in Vermilion are the biggest kind of a boom and this is one of the money deals which show the great demand for real estate in that parish. Messrs. Broussard and Durke still own several hundred acres in that section which they cultivate in rice.





 Sheriff Broussard informs us that Marsh Island, which he and Mr. Fabacher purchased some time ago, is attracting the attention of investors everywhere. Every mail brings inquires as to the adaptability of the island to stock-raising. A recent cash offer shows how rapidly it is increasing in value since its advantages have been given publicity.
Lafayette Gazette 2/22/1902.

 




 Northern Prospectors. - A. E. Hobbs, of Chicago, were in Lafayette this week looking at the country with a view of investing in real estate. Through the efforts of J. C.

Before leaving they expressed themselves greatly pleased with Lafayette, and stated that they would return probably to remain permanently.
