“Yolanda and the whole Houston Properties Team are incredible and we whole heartedly recommend them. Yolanda was our buyers agent when we purchased our house in Pearland back in 2019. We were moving to Pearland from out of state and Yolanda expertly guided us the whole way, even as we were thousands of miles away. She was so professional, efficient, and personable, which immediately put our minds at ease and made us feel confident that we were in good hands. When we decided to move to a different city, it wasn’t even a question that we would ask Yolanda to be our sellers agent. We contacted Yolanda on a Sunday and she had our house staged, beautifully photographed, and listed by the following Friday, which was a crazy fast turnaround. We had our first all cash offer in hand two days later. Three days after that, however, our buyers backed out, which put us in jeopardy of losing the house we were trying to buy in our new city. But then, within a few hours, Yolanda had somehow rustled us up a new offer. Simultaneously buying and selling a house was a crazy roller coaster. It seemed like every possible thing that could derail either or both deals surfaced and yet Yolanda shepherded us through with grace, tenacity, and determination. She always presented us with our options and let us make the choice, and then fiercely advocated on our behalf. She was always available and made us feel like we were top priority, even though I’m sure she had many other clients at the time. We really felt like she cared about us and had a vested interest in everything working out on our behalf, and that made the craziness of the whole experience much more tolerable. If you’re looking for a realtor who is equal parts competence and warmth, organized, and a true expert in the market, then look no further. We truly could not recommend Yolanda more strongly. If you’re buying or selling in the Houston area, it’s a no brainer to choose Yolanda.” - Jgskupien (Google Review)
