Houston, Texas (4/14/2015)— Keller Williams Memorial Realty has hired Houston luxury real estate specialist Kelly Howard Jones.
Jones began with John Daugherty Realtors in 1998 and most recently worked with Greenwood King Properties. Her focus during those years has been in the Memorial, West University, Bellaire, Tanglewood and River Oaks areas.
“I grew up in Memorial and raised my children in West U, which is where I started,” Jones said. “I’m now back in Memorial, which is one of the reasons I looked into Keller Williams here. I’m so glad I did. I’ve been very impressed with what I have learned about the company.”
Keller Williams at the Memorial Market Center, located at 950 Corbindale Rd #100, Houston, TX 77024, was established in 1989 and has 424 associates. The company has grown considerably in the past several years, adding 86 new agents in 2013 and 92 agents in 2014.
Last year, the company had a sales volume of more than $725 million, an increase of 35 percent over the previous year. “We are able to offer large-producing agents a showing agent program that allows them to not only grow their business, but also enjoy personal time worry-free,” said Michael Bossart, broker-owner of Keller Williams Memorial.
“We have a group of thoroughly trained agents who are matched with top producers to help them show properties to prospective buyers. It’s a win-win for all involved.” Jones, who has been consistently active in real estate for the past 17 years, said she predicts the housing market to remain strong this year.
“In 2007, we all took a big hit, but the market came back stronger than ever,” she said. “Last fall, we saw a slight adjustment because of declining oil prices, but the market appears to be holding steady. Houston is still a tremendously strong housing market.”
