Michael Raak, Agent

Douglas Elliman Real Estate


Michael Raak, a top-producing agent with Douglas Elliman Real Estate, specializes in luxury properties and new construction within the Inner Loop and Memorial areas.  His specialty market, however, doesn’t preclude him from working with buyers, sellers and investors in other geographic areas or sector preferences.

One of Raak’s proudest moments this year was quickly selling yet another Heights Historic District home above asking price, in a community with five similar homes for sale. Another was finding a new, but still off-market, custom spec home for a buyer client, and then working as the intermediary for the builder.

Currently, Raak is selling a $7-million custom-designed spec home in River Oaks, at 2110 Del Monte Dr., designed by the award-winning Nina Magon Studios. The home transcends the ordinary, and its architectural brilliance and unparalleled comforts capture the pinnacle of luxury living.

Raak grew up in West U and River Oaks, giving him insight into the surrounding neighborhoods. He says, “When I started in real estate, I spent an immense amount of time studying each micro-market in and around Houston, including the schools, which adds value to the client experience.”

Raak carefully studies the current market, researching the listing and closing prices of each sale. This allows him to give clients an up-to-date analysis when they are trying to acquire or sell a property. Always willing to go the extra mile for clients, he listens to their needs and then exceeds their expectations.
