Born and raised in Natchitoches, Mario Fox is a former Sergeant of the United States Army and Paratrooper of the 82ND Airborne Division. Mario believes in the core values of Integrity, Discipline, and Competence. Following his distinguished career in the military, Mario decided to pursue his lifelong interest in real estate.
As an associate broker Mario will focus on expanding the Rhodes Realty’s brand. With offices in Alexandria, Lafayette, Monroe, and a secondary Natchitoches office on South Drive, Mario will focus on increasing their presence in the other markets they serve, and adding more structure to the company.
“This will help us better serve our clients,” he said. “With multiple offices and agents we can divide and conquer as we help our team learn and grow.”
Mario also recruits and trains new agents. Anyone interested in joining the Rhodes team as a realtor can contact Mario directly.

Mario earned his broker’s license after 4 years as a realtor, which is also a requirement toward earning a broker’s license. He took a 150 hour course, followed by a state and national broker exam.
“It’s always something I wanted to do,” said Mario. “I never commit to anything unless I’m prepared to give it my all. My goal when becoming a real estate agent four years ago was to get my broker’s license. To do it in four years has been surreal to me.”
Rhodes Realty Owner Justin Rhodes said, “We can’t be more excited to announce the promotion of Mario from agent to broker. He has been an extremely valuable asset to our team since he came aboard and we can’t wait to see where he is headed!”
Mario is appreciated by his clients for always taking time to learn and understand their real estate needs and he makes the achievement of their goals his top priority. He feels that communication is essential to a successful relationship and prides himself on always being available and accessible to his clients.
“I’m excited to now be on the operating side of a multi-million dollar company,” said Mario. “I saw this opportunity with Rhodes Realty, which was one of the big factors for me to leave Washington DC.”
As a passionate member of the Rhodes Realty brand, Mario takes full advantage of the company’s tremendous resources to best serve his clients. The firm’s world-class marketing platform gives the homes he markets unrivalled exposure and the company’s research based approach to buyer representation ensures his home buyer clients find the ideal home and obtain it for the best price possible.
When the work day comes to an end Mario most values family time with his wife and four beautiful children and he enjoys a mix of excitement and relaxation from snowboarding, skydiving, traveling, golf, and an occasional great cigar.
