Blake Wilcox Properties
For Emily Wilcox, Realtor and co-founder of Blake Wilcox Properties, her agents are like family. “Every year we have been able to grow our brokerage more than double the previous year. I am so amazed with the commitment and dedication of our agents not only to their own business but the brokerage as a whole,” she says. It tripled her business, ranking as the highest grossing agent in the company — achieving a new level of success in a down market. Her fellow agents recognized her hard work, talent and leadership, naming her Mentor of the Year.
Wilcox works with a variety of clients in North Houston, Montgomery County and The Woodlands. Clients describe Wilcox as a knowledgeable go-getter who will guide them through each step of the homebuying and selling process. Wilcox’s ability to read situations and respond to them in appropriate ways has been instrumental to her success in real estate. “I feel like every house and every situation is different. If you can’t read that and react appropriately, you cannot be effective for your clients,” she says.
Wilcox gained her knowledge of business as a retail buyer for over five years and worked in pharmaceutical sales representative for seven years. Her corporate merchandising and sales background taught her how to take ownership, take the lead, mentor others and manage a business. She started Blake Wilcox Properties with her husband, broker Blake Wilcox, in 2014. “I feel like starting this business with my husband gave me the best of both worlds. I truly feel like every career I had before this led to real estate and owning this company company,” she says. Wilcox refers to her husband as the “ying to my yang in life and in real estate. I am so proud of our accomplishments and can’t wait to see what the next years will bring!”
As well as being active in real estate in her community, Wilcox serves as fund development chair for Junior League of Woodlands, is a member of The Woodlands Chamber of Commerce and volunteers her time with The Church at Woodforest. The Wilcoxes also organize an annual charity event called Give Thanks that benefits families in need through the StoneBridge Food Pantry in The Woodlands. At this past year’s “Give Thanks” event, they raised over $50,000 and collected three tons of food. “Our little idea is in its third year and the whole of the community is now getting involved,” Wilcox says. “It is so amazing to see the outpour of love and support for others through this event.”
In her free time, Wilcox enjoys spending time with her family. “I have two amazing children and I love to be with them at their sporting events and dance. I love to go to our farmhouse and be with family,” she says.
