Tamarah Courtright Curtis
Creighton Realty Partners
Tamarah Courtright Curtis is a broker with a mantra: “Make it happen.” In her decade of real estate service, she’s been doing just that. In 2015 alone, for example, she completed almost 130 different transactions, totaling nearly $29 million in sales. She’s been named to the Houston Business Journal’s “Top Agent” list for the past two years, is a top-rated Realtor with Creighton Realty Partners, and specializes in properties in North Montgomery County, where she ranks in the top 1 percent of all agents in the area.
Curtis got her start in real estate right after college, where she earned a degree in marketing. Prior to getting her license, she worked for six years in the service industry, an experience that she says has been tremendously valuable to her as a Realtor and a constant reminder that, at the end of the day, real estate is always about putting the client first. “Customer service was always key in the service industry and I still make that a top priority in every transaction,” she says. Curtis makes a point of letting each client know that she’s available to them around the clock, late nights and weekends included.
This philosophy is especially important considering Curtis doesn’t have what you might call a “typical” client, instead serving a wide variety of people from various backgrounds. Developers, investors, first-time buyers — Curtis serves them all, and brings a large measure of empathy and expertise to each and every sale. When we asked what inspired her most about working in real estate, she told us, “The excitement of knowing that every day can provide a different opportunity, challenge or outcome. It’s a rare feeling to know you have no glass ceiling and you can choose your own rate of growth.”
When she is not working, Curtis loves to spend time with her family, and give back to the community by volunteering with a local branch of Lions International, the Conroe Noon Lions Club. Lions International is a community service organization that seeks to organize members at a grassroots level to help better their communities. “The Lions Club organization helps so many people big and small,” she says. “The Lions Camp in Kerville would inspire anyone.”
