The Collection Real Estate by JLA Realty
Amber Kuhl believes that, with the right amount of hard work, everyone stands an equal chance of achieving success in real estate.
“I was extremely lucky to have some of the most amazing and talented people in the Houston real estate market assist me when I was getting started, and I have tried to pay it forward as best as I can,” says Kuhl, managing director of The Collection Real Estate by JLA Realty.
A former art teacher, Kuhl became a real estate professional six years ago and found that the industry gave her the ability to express her creative side when marketing properties, while also satisfying her passion for helping others. She quickly learned to roll with the punches. “Learning to bounce back quickly after a setback and developing a thick skin is key, because real estate is always full of surprises,” she says.
Clients often tell Kuhl that she makes them feel like they are her top priority. They describe her as detail-oriented and an effective communicator. Kuhl holds both the Certified Strategic Marketing Specialist and Social Media Pro designations from the Houston Association of Realtors. Working with buyers and sellers, mostly in Harris and Montgomery counties, she has spent the past two years growing her team of agents within the brokerage.
“Their successes absolutely fuel my fire,” she says. “I’m immensely proud of what we’ve created with The Collection, and it has been incredible to watch this brand grow.”
Through its own nonprofit, the brokerage supports organizations in the community, such as the Houston Food Bank, Rebuild Houston and the Houston Area Women’s Center. “We have the opportunity to donate to this organization at every closing, so it really makes it simple for us to give back to our communities,” Kuhl says.
