While we spend a lot of time together training, toasting, and tackling the world’s problems one home sale at a time, the beginning of each year always brings us a special opportunity to reflect on our successes of the year past and plan for another great year doing what we love in the only way we know how...with an uncommonly community-minded, client-centered approach and the highest level of ethics, experience, and expertise. We are humbled to say that we continued year-over-year growth now well into our second decade as a boutique, independent, Houston-owned and -operated residential real estate firm, completing our best year ever with over $239 million dollars in sales and firmly remaining in the Top 10 of firms selling inside the loop and the Top 25

Catherine Zaras, Realtor, is on the Eureka Heights Brewery bike team for this year's Texas MS150. The Texas MS150 is the first  weekend of May and raises money for Multiple Sclerosis research.

Our Agent Martha Beaudry is known for so many things: a great Realtor, a Leasing Expert, a treasured resource by her clients, and her love of animals! She recently shared with us her journey to her new pets....a surprising pet.....just in time for Halloween!

Martha: My early formative years were spent pretty much playing and exploring in desert climates, first in Roswell, NM then in Midland, TX.  I loved life in the west.  I loved the weather, the dry air and the critters; specifically, the horned lizards and the tarantulas.  My little brother and I would hunt and collect horned lizards regularly but tarantulas we simply admired and respected…from afar.  Neither of us were ever brave enough to approach them; I’m not sure my parents were either.

Wendy and Rick both joined us shortly after Hurricane Harvey so they really were a bright spot for us after the storm. We hope these two would have eventually made their way to Boulevard regardless, but it was Harvey and factors surrounding the storm that truly pointed them in our direction.

Wendy decided to come on board with us after visiting what became the Houston Relief Hub—a citizen-led hub for donations, volunteering, and relief formed in the aftermath of Harvey—and hearing our broker/owner Bill Baldwin’s presentation on real estate and recovery less than 10 days after Harvey.
