March 2010

John Daugherty Jr. says there are plenty of positive signs that the luxury housing market is turning around.

Inventory is low, new construction is on the rise, and the agents that work for his high-end realty firm have exceeded their sales goals almost every month for the last five.

He’s now concerned that Houston will have a major shortage in new construction by the end of the year.

As his company enters its 44th year, Daugherty spoke with real estate reporter Nancy Sarnoff about what he thinks the future holds for Houston’s high-end housing market.

Here are excerpts from that conversation.  http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/business/6911330.html

Jane Brennan-Martin and Sharon Davis returned to our company after a brief departure to another brokerage firm.

John A. Daugherty, Jr. said “We are pleased to have Jane and Sharon rejoin our company, it is my policy to keep an open door.”

When asked what the reasons for the decision Jane Brennan Martin stated “There are numerous reasons why I have come back to John Daugherty, Realtors, the main reason is the friendly supportive atmosphere, and that John Daugherty, Realtors is truly a family. 

The firm has been Houston’s leading luxury broker for 43 years. John Daugherty, Realtors is about quality and professionalism and I prefer their website and team site above all the others in this market area. Also the newly reorganized advertising department has a great new campaign and so many opportunities to market our firm and homes.”

 Sharon Davis stated one of her main reasons for returning is “The incredible support of other realtors in our office and the support of the management team.”

Sharon also said the advertising and marketing department’s changes have been significant and very agent friendly.

Last but not least Jane’s daughters, Addie and Lexie prefer the John Daugherty, “For Sale” sign because it is shaped like a house!
