A native Houstonian and Inner Loop resident living in Braeswood Place, Broker Drake Terrell focuses on older, Inner Loop neighborhoods. He combines more than 26 years of real estate experience with an extensive knowledge of home remodeling to help buyers discover the potential in these older properties. He applies this same expertise in advising buyers considering new construction, helping them compare and evaluate amenities, floor plans, finishes and other important factors.

“I understand what is sometimes needed to maximize a home’s potential. I appreciate the value a seller sees in their updated home,” says Drake. This insight, along with a strong contractual knowledge and high ethical standards, enables him to complete comprehensive transactions and eliminate buyers’ and sellers’ concerns. He helps buyers narrow their focus by listening to their wants and needs, then educates them to possibilities the market holds for their future.

A former Eagle Scout, Drake is always prepared. He says, “I will always be honest with the client and am willing to devote whatever amount of time is required for their buying or selling experience to be satisfying both emotionally and financially.”

Also US Army veteran, Drake’s four years of service in Europe where he was a member of the Military Police exposed him to a myriad of cultures and experiences that equipped him to deal with new and challenging situations in real estate.

Drake’s commitment to improving the inner city was demonstrated by his founding of the Dearborn Place Civic Association. He was instrumental in obtaining streetlights and repaving for the neighborhood. Now he is a member and currently on the Board of the Braeswood Place Civic Association and Constable Patrol.

He and his wife Joan, an Interior Designer, have two sons. A devoted father, he is a Pershing Boy's Lacrosse coach, and an Assistant Scoutmaster.

Drake not only understood our needs in our relocation but he went above and beyond to assist us in our very limited time frame. He was able to give us solid information while not coloring our choices with his own preferences. We plan on using Drake for any of our future realty needs and we have recommended him to several people for realty purposes.

Drake Terrell was a joy to work with. We had a unique situation and a very tight time line and Drake was in it with us the whole way. He was professional and friendly. He advocated for us as if it were his house too. I'd recommend him to anyone and will call on him in the future.

Drake was a bright spot in a very stressful move across the country for me. As a single woman with very specific "must-haves" in a rental home, Drake was patient, polite, accommodating, and always made me feel empowered to make the best decision possible for me. He was always on-time, courteous and professional. I appreciate his knowledge of the area and his willingness to show me around, as I had never been in the area before. Drake also went above and beyond the call of duty to help me find solutions to maintenance issues with my new rental home when the property manager proved to be of little help. I'd definitely recommend Drake and am grateful to have him as my Realtor.

Drake assisted us with locating a new rental property following the Memorial Day flood in Houston. He understood the urgency and need for us to quickly locate a clean, suitable rental and appropriately assessed our needs, finding several properties in the market for us to view. He also provided valuable information that enabled us to terminate the lease at our flooded rental property. Drake's knowledge and personal attention, even during his vacation, was much appreciated and was so helpful to us during this very stressful time. He is a man of great personal integrity which he demonstrated throughout this process. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking a realtor.

I would definitely recommend Drake. I live in Colorado, so much of our correspondence was over the internet in regards to the initial contract, negotiated offer, and final agreement. Great job.

Drake is very concise and direct in his communications with his clients. He educated us on the market, the area, and what risks are associated with buying an older home. He used DocuSign which made our lives easier during our relocation, and we didn't have to meet him in person to sign paperwork which was a bonus. His best feature as a REALTOR is that he is no-nonsense, direct, and fair, and he is the first REALTOR we've ever met that we would use again in our future real estate transactions.

We were More than happy with Drakes attitude, knowledge and experience. Having spent 3 months looking at properties with another agent without any success, we explained to him where we wanted to be and when we wanted to be there. A selection of properties was found within 24 hours, We selected the one we wanted and closed within 1 week. Quality service, perfect result, hence the 5 ***** and very pleased we found him. Thank you

Drake was VERY professional and went out of his way to help me close while I was out of town the entire time. He was able to coordinate a seamless remote closing in a months time during Christmas - even with financing & relocation companies involved. He has continued to help me by supporting my move (as I travel much) by assisting with utility set up and even homestead tax exemption. He is a genuine person and not a salesman – far better that the 4 other realtors I’ve worked with previously.

I have purchased three homes in my life and this is the first time I used a realtor. I could not done it without Drake's help. He took the time to teach me the area and understand exactly what was in the area. Because there are many older homes in the area. Drake taught me what to look for in the older homes. It was a great experience. I would recommend using Drake.

Drake was very responsive. He was available by phone most of the time. When I left voice mails he returned my call promptly. He was very good about accommodating my schedule. He kept me informed about the process so there were no unpleasant surprises. I would definitely rcommend him to others.

The best realtor I have ever used! He sold a home in a declining neighberhood in under 8 weeks. If we had selected any other realtor, I believe the home would still be sitting on the market. Wholeheartedly recommend Drake as a realtor who can sell any house in any market.

Seller

Drake was terrific. He was consistently candid about his opinions about various properties, knew a great deal about Houston neighborhoods, and ALWAYS patient as we looked at house after house. I'd recommend him to anyone.
