A good man . . . um, realtor . . . is hard to find
Is it just me, or is finding a good realtor almost as difficult as finding a good man? After 12 years of marriage, 5 houses, 1 apartment and 1 duplex, we've been through a few.
Keep reading because if you live in the Houston or Dallas area, I have 2 realtor recommendations for you. :)
The realtor who sold us our house just ordered these cookies for another client. I first made the cottage/house cookie years ago and I think it's still my husband's favorite.
Here are my realtor recommendations...(they are unsolicited and unpaid; these are just darn good people...and agents!):
In Houston: Jessica Rushing with Zip Realty. Jessica is a doll; level-headed, genuine and thoughtful. While I was walking through, picturing houses with painted cabinets and wood floors instead of carpet, she would say something like, did you notice this house backs to a busy street? Yeah...I needed her. :) She helped us find just the right place and it was smooth sailing. She's just a pleasure to work with.
In Dallas: Paul Bush with Keller Williams. We've worked with Paul twice, once to buy, once to sell. He is one of the first people I would call if we were moving back to Dallas....my dad, my sister, 2 Dallas girlfriends, then Paul Bush. (Honestly, I might call him first.) He LISTENS! He could look at a house for me and tell me if I would like it (or not). He's a great guy, amazingly good at what he does. I can't recommend him highly enough.
