Broker Associate | Team Lead
As a Real Estate Agent or Broker since 2007, Elliott Holmes understands that it's not about him; it's about how he can help his clients reach their goals. Elliott offers sellers a professional market analysis to present a clear picture of what is happening within their community right now. Elliott also does not believe in the "one size fits all" marketing strategy that most agents subscribe to. You need to have a specific marketing plan for the various price ranges of homes and the various communities you are selling in. The marketing plan has to be substantially different for a house that's listed for 1.2 million compared to a house listed for 200k. Elliott also implements his "Certified Pre-Owned Home" marketing plan for selling existing homes in communities where the seller has to compete with a nearby new home builder. Prior to his career in residential real estate, Elliott honed his marketing skills for 22 successful years in sales. During 15 years as a senior pharmaceutical sales executive, he won district, regional, and national sales awards for production. As a pharmaceutical sales rep, Elliott was relocated four times – an experience which allows him to relate to relocation buyers and sellers on a personal as well as professional level. “Let’s face it,” says Elliott, “outside of the usual positive things that are associated with relocation such as a job promotion, new assignment or retirement, etc., relocating across the country can be a bear. I’ve learned from personal experience and I turn my clients’ relocation experiences into very pleasant ones.” Both as a Realtor and a new-home consumer, Elliott knows the value of buyer representation, especially in new construction purchases, and never allows his clients to be pressured. "As a buyer representative, I discuss with my clients their short and long-term plans for their next home," says Elliott. "This is critical because beyond size, number of bedrooms and baths, and a great kitchen, other factors change. A house might be an empty-nest soon or could be a transition house in a short-term corporate move involving school-age children. These questions and more should be considered prior to writing a contract." Additionally, I have a saying that I tell every buyer that I represent. "You want to buy a house that someone will want to buy from you!"
Like many current Houston area residents, Elliott relocated to the Bayou City. Born and reared in Michigan during the Motown era, he grew up listening to The Temptations, Smokey Robinson, Diana Ross and The Supremes. When not working, Elliott enjoys time with his family, motorcycling, spectator sports, and good movies on DVD or Roku.
