What do you love most about the industry? Competition. There are 30,000 agents in Houston and I love negotiating for my clients and competing with all of these Realtors.

How do you distinguish yourself from the crowd of agents? We have a proven, repeatable listing and buying process that we use for our clients. It is designed to get you the best price in the shortest amount of time. It helps our buyers not lose out in multiple-offer situations and guarantees them we will get the home at the price they are comfortable with. The process is a proven process that has ranked us the No. 9 team in Houston.
