Sky Real Estate Professionals
When Tiffany Markovsky was first starting out at a big brand brokerage in 1999, she felt like she was getting lost in the crowd. “I didn’t have the brokerage support I needed and had to learn things the hard way,” she says. “It is my goal to always be here for my agents and make sure I am available to them when they need me.”
Today, Markovsky is the owner of Sky Real Estate Professionals, a brokerage in Cypress, Texas, that has more than 60 agents. In 2017, her team made over $37 million in sales, and she personally coached and mentored more than a dozen new agents. She was named the Women’s Council of Realtors Greater West Houston Entrepreneur of the Year and was among the Houston Association of Realtors’ Top 20 under 40 in 2016. “I love helping and teaching,” she said. “It has become another passion of mine with the real estate industry.”
Markovsky works in the markets of Cypress, Tomball, Spring/Woodlands, Katy, Richmond, Waller and Conroe. She works with luxury homebuyers and sellers, investors, first-time homebuyers, commercial and leasing clients, and those purchasing new construction. In client testimonials, clients often note her professionalism, courteousness and knowledge of the industry. “I make the process simple, and communication is key,” Markovsky says. “I am always there for them in explaining every detail, listening to their needs and catering to them individually.”
Markovsky says being patient has been instrumental in her success. “Buying and selling real estate can be stressful. Listening to your clients’ needs is very important as every transaction is different. Putting my clients’ needs first and making their homebuying experience a pleasant one is very important.”
Before entering the real estate industry, Markovsky worked in accounting for five years at a petroleum products company. She then worked for a commercial real estate agent as an assistant: “That’s when my love for real estate began,” she says. Markovsky worked for RE/MAX and Keller Williams, and then became a broker in 2005. She decided to go out on her own in 2011. “It was a huge decision to go out on my own and I was very hesitant,” she says. “With the encouragement of my husband, I moved forward with opening my brokerage and haven’t looked back since.”
Markovsky is a member of several real estate organizations. She was the treasurer for Women’s Council of Realtors Greater West Houston for 2016-2017 and a member of HAR’s Professional Advisory and Young Professionals Network Advisory Group.
In her free time, Markovsky enjoys spending time with her family. “I love spending time with my family – my husband and two children and two dogs,” she said. “My daughter is 15 years old and is involved with her school’s theatre program and also learning to drive. My son’s 11 years old and eats, breathes and lives to play sports. They keep me very busy with all of their sporting and theater activities.”
Markovsky is also involved in nonprofit organizations such as Cypress Assisted Ministries, Linked with Liam (an organization dedicated to improving the lives of children with cancer) and Krause Learning Center. In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, Tiffany organized the donations of food, clothing and essentials for multiple organizations that were instrumental in helping thousands in her flood-ravaged community. “We were some of the few lucky ones to still have a home when it was all over with. Sitting idly by watching people on television who lost everything was simply not an option,” she says. Markovsky and her team were so successful in their drive that several donation hubs actually turned away food and clothing donations because they physically ran out of space.
In addition to helping her human counterparts, Markovsky and her husband purchased several hundred dollars of pet food from Pet Supermarket to donate to local rescue shelters for the four-legged victims of this terrible tragedy. “Watching our community come together during this disaster was amazing. I feel blessed to have been a small part of it.”
