Benefits Of Working With The Houston Properties Team

The Houston Properties Team has a well-defined structure based on the individual strengths of each member.

We find a team approach as the most effective way to sell homes. We have dedicated people doing staging, marketing, social media, open houses and showings. Each Houston Properties Team member is a specialist in their role – which is why our homes sell faster and for more money than average.

The benefits of working with a team include:

  • Ability to be in 2 or 3 places at one time: a member can handle showings, while another answer calls.
  • Collective time and experience of members.
  • Targeted advise and marketing of agent expert in your area.
  • Competitive advantage by simply having more resources, ideas, and more perspectives.
  • A “Checks and Balances” system. Selling and buying a home in Houston is an intensely complex process.
  • More people addressing field calls and questions from buyers and agents to facilitate a faster successful sale.
  • Efficient multi-tasking: One agent takes care of inspections and/or repair work, while another agent is focused on administrative details.
  • Multiple marketing channels using members’ networks.
  • Constant attention: guaranteed focus on your home and your transaction.
  • Lower risk for mistakes. Multiple moving parts increase oversights. A team approach handles these “parts” separately.
  • Flexibility in negotiation and marketing.
  • Better management of document flow.
  • Increased foot traffic through more timely and effective showing schedule coordination.
  • Increased Sphere of Influence and exposure to more potential buyers.
