REALTOR OF THE WEEK Patricia Hooper specializes in condo sales, new construction
Most Realtors agree that in today’s real estate market, there is nothing more valuable than having a good real estate agent to help a buyer or seller navigate the landscape.
“It is so important to have a Realtor who knows area values, who advise smartly on selling and buying comp’s and pricing, and who just might become a valued friend. It’s hard to achieve that in a ‘virtual’ real estate environment,” said Patricia Hooper, a Realtor with Sudhoff Companies, Houston.
Hooper’s main focus areas are the Heights, Sawyer Heights and inside the Loop.
“This is a great time to buy or sell. The new H-E-B concept store will open in the spring, very close to most of Sawyer Heights. The entire Washington Corridor is under redevelopment, not by the city, but by developers, and it is happening at warp speed. The vibrant Sawyer & Edwards art studios are moments away. Some of the best restaurants in the city are in the greater Heights area,” Hooper said.
Hooper began her career in real estate as a leasing agent in Houston, and by chance one of the people she leased to offered her a job in real estate to help with sales of the Riva at the Park condominium.
“I obtained by license and I loved the work, and it’s become my career. I specialize in condo sales and new construction,” Hooper said.
Prior to real estate, Hopper was a sustainability consultant to architectural product manufacturers, technical specification writer, and product analyst. Prior to that, she established and owned a national distribution business, marketing sustainable architectural product to large architectural firms in major cities throughout the U.S.
“I have been in consultative sales my entire professional life, and those skills are what you use if you are a good real estate agent. Listen carefully, analyze what you hear to help solve a problem and/or fulfill a dream,” Hooper said.
Hooper, an award-winning Realtor, is known for her friendliness, positive sense of humor, self-confidence, empathy, listening skills, her sincere caring about people, working hard to ensure her clients receive the best possible customer service, and finding the homes that meet her clients’ needs and goals.
Hooper is also active in the community and supports the Houston SPCA.
