That’s why we don’t sell houses, we build this beautiful community!

In our 41st year as a real estate brokerage in Houston, Texas and in my 26th year of selling or managing the sale of real estate in Houston, Texas, the one thing I have learned is that I will never live long enough to have “Seen It All.” Every transaction and every client is different and the needs or requirements of each have unique situations that we encounter and deal with based on those circumstances. The benefit of the experiences we have had is that we can recognize potential issues and recall solutions from similar situations to resolve these issues before they occur.

The purchase and sale of real property is the largest investment most people make in their lives. Aside from the protection of this major aspect, it is also the place where families are raised, pets come and go, neighbors become friends and a sense of home is created for all who reside there. This is why we take our responsibilities so seriously. In a world where papers are signed with the click of a button and decisions are being made in nanoseconds, we have to step back and make sure that the things our clients are not thinking about or asking come to the forefront.

It is not the answers to the questions you ask that are most important, it is the questions you never knew to ask that matter most. 

I hope this blog will provide insight and answers and sometimes entertaining anecdotes about the world of real estate in Houston and sometimes beyond. I look forward to sharing more with you and am eager to hear what you think.

Thank you for your interest and engagement.
