HOUSTON, Feb. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Ces Guerra has joined Houston's MK Luxury Homes & Condos to specialize in sales and leases of properties in the neighborhoods of Tanglewood, Memorial, inside the Loop, and surrounding suburbs. Guerra is a long-time Houston resident and formerly worked in corporate consumer product and pharmaceutical sales for nearly 20 years.
"Houston is a hot real estate market right now thanks to corporate relocations and new jobs being added to our economy," said Guerra. "That makes it a very competitive market and there are several considerations for both sellers and buyers to assure their expectations are met. I am excited to help clients navigate this very intense market."
The Houston Association of REALTORS® (HAR) reports an aggressive pace for home sales in Houston with average and median prices reaching the highest levels for a January last month. The upper-end market is exceptionally hot and sales of houses priced above $500,000 and into the million-plus bracket were up 52 percent over January of 2012, the association reported.
"In addition, townhome and condominium sales increased 20 percent in January over last year. With this type of market activity and a tight inventory, buyers and sellers need to establish a plan of action with a Realtor," advises Guerra. "Taking swift action does not replace the need for a strategic plan whether you're selling or buying a new residential property."
Guerra believes in developing customized action plans for his buying clients that help them define what are the absolute "must-haves" in the home they are seeking and what features they would "like to" have. He advises sellers to showcase their residence with the utmost appeal right away to assure top dollar.
Ces has been a resident of Houston since 1989 and is married to the former Laura Hawkins. He is a licensed Realtor® with HAR, the Texas Association of REALTORS® and the National Association of REALTORS®. He served in the U.S. Army's 82nd Airborne Division's Medical Corps from 1977 to 1981. After receiving undergraduate and graduate degrees from Louisiana State University and Houston Baptist University respectively, Guerra worked in pharmaceutical sales, training and management for several national pharmaceutical companies. In 2007, he co-authored a fictional book titled "Pill Pushers: A Big Pharma Battle for Marketshare."
