California-based real estate startup Radius has expanded into Houston, with brokers Sharon Seline Wright and Kelly McQuerry Henderson joining the brokerage as founding members, according to a press release.
The launch marks the company’s entry into Texas on the heels of a $13 million Series A fundraise. Currently, Radius operates in California, Colorado, Georgia, Oregon and Texas, with plans to expand into other states.
Wright and Henderson represent nearly four decades of combined experience in the Houston real estate market. In addition to working with buyers and sellers, the brokers serve as mentors and coaches to other real estate professionals.
“The past two and a half years have caused the world and our lives to change dramatically. It not only changed the real estate market but the way we all do business,” said Wright. “Now, more than ever, I need to continue investing in and developing my business to best meet my clients’ needs. That means finding solutions that will not only solve today’s current climate but sustain us for the future. Radius is that solution.”
“I am thrilled to be partnering with such a forward-thinking, innovative brokerage,” added Henderson. “I am
very excited to bring Radius to Houston and the state of Texas. Change is good in business, and with Radius, I will be able to invest in the growth of my business and take it to the next level.”
Radius is a full-service modern brokerage that enables real estate professionals to keep 100% of their commissions while providing the coaching, community and technology that agents and their teams need to grow their business. The company helped agents close more than $400 million in sales the first quarter of 2022, representing 213% quarterly growth, the release noted.
“We’re thrilled to have Kelly and Sharon on board with us here in Houston to launch our Texas operations,” said Barb Hindle, chief brokerage officer at Radius. “Kelly and Sharon’s deep experience in real estate, paired with their entrepreneurial drive, make them each perfect partners for us as we look to expand here in Houston and the state. I look forward to watching their continued growth and success with Radius.”
