Agent Snapshot: Chad Ray, Broker/Owner, C.R. Realty, Katy


Chad Ray is the broker/owner of C. R. Realty working in Katy.

What was your first job in the realty industry? After graduating the University of Houston in 2002 with a BBA in finance and management, I got a real estate license and joined Remax Town & Country on Memorial Dr. in Houston.

What do you do to relax when you’re stressed? I am an avid motocross rider. Me and the crew ride the local motorcross tracks any chance we get. Motocross is a great way to let loose and destress.

Where did you grow up? I grew up in the Katy and Sugar Land area. Being born and raised in the local area is always a plus. I know Katy and Sugar land areas like the back of my hand.

Growing up, what did you want to be? I wanted to be an optomitrist when I was younger.

If you could have lunch with a well-known figure (living or not), who would it be and why? If I could have lunch with any well-known figure it would probably be Donald Trump. I would love to pick his brain on real estate issues.

Where is your favorite place to hang out? My favorite place to hang out is one of the local motocross tracks. The best one to hang out at currently is Rio Bravo MX. It has been around for decades and is located on the Northeast side of Houston.

What do you love most about the industry? What I love most about the industry is being given the opportunity to help people find and purchase their dream home. I love putting smiles on peoples faces!

How do you distinguish yourself from the crowd of agents? I distingiush myself from other agents by making it a point to give each and every one of my clients the best service possible. There are alot of agents out there that do not know how to respond to clients’ questions, texts or messages in a timely manner.

I respond to emails, messages and texts as fast as I can. I know that when clients are looking for advice or an answer to their question they would like a quick response. All my clients tell me that they love getting a quick response to their texts, emails or missed phone calls. Anything I can do to make the transaction easier for my client I will do.

What is the most difficult aspect of your job? The most difficult aspect of real estate right now is having to fight against multiple offers when shopping with my buyers. It’s great for sellers right now but it can be trying for buyers up against multiple offers.

Where do you go to network and meet new clients? Anywhere I go I consider it a place to network. The best networking for me has been the motocross tracks, the gym and church.

What has been you greatest accomplishment? My greatest accomplishment to date has to be my new son. I am a proud new father of a 10-month-old boy named Chase! He is such a great blessing.

What was the last good movie you saw or book you read? Unfortunately, I have not seen a good movie lately. Most the movies I see these days turn out to be garbage.

What is your favorite restaurant? Pappadeaux is my favorite restaurant!
I could eat there four days a week and not get tired of it.

Architecturally speaking, what is your favorite building in Houston? My favorite building in Houston is the JP Morgan Chase Tower. It is currently the tallest building in Houston and in Texas at 1002 ft tall.

What kind of car do you drive? I drive a Platinum Ford F-150.

Smartphone or paper? Smartphones are great for our business.

What is your favorite city after Houston? Breckenridge, Colo. is my favorite city after Houston. I love the mountains, snow and fresh air.

In 10 words or less, what is your advice for someone new to the industry? Work hard and good things will come.

What’s your favorite real estate iPhone/Android app? The HAR app is the one I use the most.

Who are your favorite people to follow on Twitter?
I do not follow anyone on Twitter.
