“I had the pleasure of working with one of Houston's best relators, Kim Vargas of the Houston Properties Team. From start to finish she was very responsive, kind, and a constant professional. Kim and her team expertly guided us on how to handle and deal with FSBO. They listened to our needs and interests, and gave tips and guidance that helped us immensely. I look forward to working with her and the team again.” - Brett Bingham (Google Review)
