Why Choose Signature Properties?


Signature Properties has been in the real estate business since 1984.  We are a long standing member in good standing with the National Association of Realtors® which allows us to call ourselves REALTORS®, wear the REALTOR® pin of distinction, and participate in a vast network of services and associates to aid our customers and clients.  We have gone beyond the rigorous educational requirements of the State of Texas’ nationally recognized standards and attained numerous additional professional certifications.  But our people are constantly striving to be better, as they continue to improve by continuously taking advanced training and education in pursuit of more industry certifications.  When we list a property for sale, we immediately set in motion a complex and tech-savvy marketing plan to broadcast the availability of your home.  We notify our personal sphere of influence and host various kinds of other forums.  Signature Properties will quickly post your property with details and photos on our nationally exposed website, the local MLS (Multiple Listing Service) along with other collaborating services.  As technologically sophisticated agents, we use digital photography, virtual tours, Internet slide shows, electronic brochures, various Internet search engines, specialty listing services, and optimize technology to maximize your listing's exposure to as many agents and buyers as possible.  Buyers are provided many utilities and services that encourage them to visit Signature Properties and keep returning.  Signature Properties also markets your property quickly and effectively through other proven methods, which may include signs, fliers, satellite controlled lockboxes, as well as direct advertising like postcards, property specific mailers, and newspapers.


You need to know that not all real estate agents or salespersons are REALTORS® as is Signature Properties.  Only members in good standing with the National Association of Realtors can be called REALTORS®.  Because of their vast networking capabilities, a REALTOR® should know the market better and should give one greater confidence because they are members of a large network of associates with access to more data that can help you prepare your home for sale far better.  As a REALTOR®, Signature Properties knows many suggestions to help you make your home look its best.  We can help you budget for clean-up and any repairs that may help the home sell more easily.  We can help you decide which inspections should be completed prior to listing your home for sale.  We have access to a network of REALTORS® to assist us in knowing how to price your property appropriately so that it will not be overpriced and sit on the market without receiving offers.  We also know that you may need us to go the extra mile to keep both your purchase and your sale transactions going smoothly.  Home selling and buying is not easy, but Signature Properties is known for our great track record of making a difficult process more pleasant than others can do for you.


Special Certifications:  Signature Properties has RLI ALC and GRI Associates as members on its team providing designations earned by completing rigid required course work beyond the State required real estate licensing courses.  And the Licensing requirements in Texas are already recognized as the toughest of any in the United States.  Some of these designations require millions of dollars of verifiable transactions before the designation can be earned and awarded.  This has not only upgraded Signature Properties knowledge via advanced course curriculum that provides our clients with many advantages, but these designations also provide us with memberships affiliations that provide an on-going source of new ideas, customers, and clients looking to buy or sell to one another.
