Choosing the right professional realtor is the first step in the right direction. Your final step, the purchase of your home, will affect your future. You may want to find someone that you can trust and rely on. Deciding on the right realtor is as much about expertise as it is chemistry. You want someone who understands how the market works and who knows how to leverage on that in order to get you the best possible deal, but they also have to understand precisely what you want as a client.

These local real estate REALTORS®, brokers, and agents are being recognized for their contribution to their clients and their local community.

Greater Houston Houses - Cypress, TX

Since 2005, owners of Greater Houston Houses LLC, a husband-and-wife team, Vaughn and Anera have helped over five hundred homeowners sell their houses. Vaughn and Anera treat each client with respect and give a fair and reasonable cash offer. When you are dealing with L. Vaughn and Anera Ramcharitar, you aren’t dealing with a bank or a real estate agent. You are dealing with professional real estate investors with over fifteen years of experience and over six hundred transactions in the Greater Houston area. Real Estate Entrepreneur and Chief Operating Officer of Greater Houston Houses, L. Vaughn Ramcharitar is a business technical professional and has experience working in Oil & Energy, business development, hydraulics, wellbore stability, and drilling.

Greater Houston Houses has a non-traditional and hassle-free process of dealing with houses: buying, renewing, renting, and selling numerous properties. That is what makes it different from others. There is no need to fulfill bank criteria and formalities because Greater Houston Houses buys houses for cash. Many of their clients are in foreclosure. They help get the maximum value for a client’s house, and provide those funds to the client at the earliest possible time. Client satisfaction is their ultimate goal.

Community involvement is second nature to Vaughn and Anera. They are supporters of the Boys and Girls Country of Houston, Inc. (BGC) and volunteers at the Houston Food Bank.

Here is just one of many client testimonials about the services provided by Greater Houston Houses:

“I would like to commend Vaughn and the Greater Houston Houses team for a job well done on my real-estate transaction. My situation was a complicated one and Vaughn not only offered me multiple solutions he also executed what I decided on in the time frame that I needed it to be completed. I can’t thank them enough for the courteous, quick and professional service I received. I don’t know what I would have done if Greater Houston Houses had not stepped in. I’m forever grateful.” [Shabay W., Houston, TX]

Triangle Realty - Amarillo, TX

Licensed in Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, and Colorado, Triangle Realty has local agents with backgrounds in all aspects of the agricultural industry and decades of combined residential sales experience. Properties include farm, ranch, hunting, recreational, horse, feedyards, dairies, and residential. Hardworking, trustworthy, and dependable are the values that the team strives for. These are also the three cornerstones that represent the three points of the triangle in Triangle Realty.

Broker and owner, JT Haynes was instilled with strong work ethics and a sense of always trying to exceed people’s expectations. He acquired his undergraduate degree and Masters in Agricultural Science from Texas Tech University in Lubbock, TX. After receiving his Texas Broker’s License, JT started Triangle Realty, LLC in January 2010. He owes his successful sales career to his mantra, “It’s the little things you do, that you don’t have to do, that make a difference when nothing else matters.” In 2011, Jamie Haynes acquired her Texas Real Estate license and joined forces with her husband, JT, at Triangle Realty, LLC. Jamie has a Management Information Systems Degree from Texas Tech University, Lubbock, Texas, and a Master of Business Administration Degree in General Studies from West Texas A&M University. Both JT and Jamie were raised on their family’s ranch in Texas and currently reside between Amarillo and Canyon, Texas. The happy couple have two children.

Community has always been at the heart of Triangle Realty. Inspired by a Bible quote found in Proverbs, “Honor the Lord with your wealth, with the first fruits of all your crops,” the Triangle Realty First Fruits was launched in the summer of 2015. Prior to every real estate transaction, as each agent is required to turn in their transaction data to the brokerage, they are given an opportunity to donate a portion of their commission to the program and to make a difference in their local community. At year-end, the brokerage and agent decide on which local charity or charities will be the recipient of those funds. Triangle Realty matches each agent’s donations dollar-for-dollar, thus making the giving even more fruitful.

Here is a partial list of Triangle Realty’s First Fruits program recipients: CASA of Amarillo, The Humane Society of Deaf Smith County, Working Ranch Cowboy Association, Snak Pak for Kids-Canyon, Panhandle Paws of Hope, South Plains Food Bank, San Jacinto School, MTK Foundation, Mission Amarillo, Circle of Friends Hansford County, VFW Post #1475 Amarillo, Meals on Wheels of Shamrock, Amarillo Evelin Rivers Christmas Project, Canyon Care Net Pregnancy Center, Methodist Children’s Home, Children’s Advocacy Center of the South Plains, Gruver Volunteer Fire Department, Spearman Volunteer Fire Department, Happy Volunteer Fire Department, Launch Global, Colorful Closets, First Baptist Church of Shamrock Bus Fund, Canyon Baptist Church, Living Water Christian Fellowship of Canyon, Canyon First United Methodist Church, McLean First United Methodist Church, Holy Catholic Church, St. Ann’s Catholic Church, Church at Bushland, Mom’s in Prayer, Faith City Missions, Hillside Church, Holy Catholic Church.
