I'm excited to announce that I have received the Texas Monthly Magazine 5 STAR award again for 2012! Thanks to all of my clients that again gave me this vote of confidence! Here's how they chose the award winners:
Our research team contacted consumers in the Houston region and asked if they had experience working with a real estate agent. Consumers who agreed to participate in the survey provided the name of the real estate agent and rated that individual according to key criteria such as integrity, negotiation and closing preparation.
Surveys were sent to Houston region residents who recently purchased a home over $150,000 (more than 42,500 households) within a 12-month period (July 2010 to July 2011). An additional 250 surveys were sent to mortgage and title companies.
The survey data was collected and scored, resulting in the list of 2012 Houston Five Star Real Estate Agents. The research methodology allows only 7% or fewer real estate agents in a given market to qualify for the Five Star award.
Five Star Professional follows standard sampling and survey practices used by other professional research organizations. Our research also includes feedback from industry peers and leaders, and a regulatory review to provide necessary checks and balances.
