Jimmy Simien’s generosity, extensive real estate knowledge and corporate finance background make him a true leader in the industry. As Broker/Owner of Simien Properties, Simien, along with his exceptional team of agents, works within the commercial and residential markets, serving luxury homebuyers, investors, empty nesters and more. “The real estate process goes beyond opening a door and filling out a contract,” says Simien, adding that his ability to problem-solve has been fundamental to his 16-year career.
In 2017, the Simien Properties team proved their loyalty to their brokerage and to Simien himself after destruction from Hurricane Harvey tested their mettle. “Our office took on 18 inches of water. We were forced to relocate to a temporary location for two months before finding our new location. We had to work outside of our comfort zone while still trying to maintain our business,” Simien says. “All the staff and agents were amazing and so very helpful. Many could have sought out a new brokerage. Ultimately we didn’t lose a single person. We pulled together as a family and made it through.”
Ranked among the 100 Most Influential Real Estate Agents in Texas by Real Estate Executive magazine in 2016, Simien is known for his responsiveness and eagerness to serve his clients, as well as his passion for mentoring his agents. In 2017, Simien Properties was named one of REAL Trend’s Best Real Estate Teams in America; and this year, they were listed among the top teams in the Houston area by Houston Business Journal.
Simien is a member of the National Association of Realtors, the Texas Association of Realtors and the Houston Association of Realtors. He enjoys partnering with S.A.V.E. Rescue to help place fostered dogs into forever homes. In his free time, Simien enjoys watching sports.
