Michael Raak (pronounced Rock) with Douglas Elliman is a top-producing real estate agent who is an expert in every facet of the business. He began his real estate career as a new construction sales consultant with InTown Homes/Lovett Homes. “This experience gave me a solid information base on how homes are built, understanding the needs of the customers as well as developers,”
Raak grew up in Houston and has lived in West University Place, River Oaks, and Memorial, which has given him an in-depth knowledge of Houston and the surrounding areas. He also specializes in selling farm and ranch properties across Texas, including in the Galveston Bay area and Texas Hill Country. “My parents taught me to earn my keep by working hard. I do not expect anyone to hand me business — I want to earn it by showing my value,” Raak said.
Earning the trust of potential clients was of the utmost importance to Raak when breaking into Houston’s luxury market. “I measure my success by the satisfaction of my clients in their experience with me,” he says. “I feel very fortunate to assist those I have helped make their next move.”
Raak was awarded the Platinum Award at Elliman’s 2023 Ellie Awards, commemorating his place in the top 8% of Elliman agents nationwide. He also ranked among the top 20 Elliman agents by volume and GCI in Texas. Previous accolades include ranking as the number one agent in the 77019 zip code in 2022 and selling the third most-expensive home in Houston in that year.
