About uS

Crescent Heritage Properties carefully restores historic homes and constructs new homes that fit within the fabric of their neighborhoods.  Joe Aluise founded Crescent Heritage Properties after a 20 year career practicing law in New Orleans.  Aluise moved to New Orleans in 1997 with his wife, Rhonda, and immediately fell in love with the city – both the people who live there and the spaces they inhabit.  A lifelong admirer of architecture, the elegant homes of New Orleans inspired Aluise to pursue a second career reinvigorating the neighborhoods of the city.  He began purchasing and restoring New Orleans homes in 2011 and has now built or restored dozens of residences. 

Aluise lives in New Orleans with Rhonda, his wife of 23 years, and their three beautiful daughters, Anna Katherine (17), Ella (14) and Amelia (12).
