What is a Five Star Real Estate Agent?

Five Star Professional partnered with Texas Monthly to identify real estate agents in the Houston region who deliver outstanding service and client satisfaction.  The Five Star Professional research team contacts thousands of recent homebuyers and clients may also submit evaluations online.  These consumers rate their real estate agent on criteria such as overall saatisfaction and whether they would recommend the agent to a friend.

  • Each agent is screened against state governing bodies to verify that licenses are current, and no disciplinary actions are pending.
