Listen! Listen! Listen! — are the three most important words in real estate, according to Rita Donnelly.

For over two decades, Rita has been offering clients fresh and innovative approaches to home buying and selling from introducing them to new neighborhoods to helping them prepare their homes to sell. Her commitment to excellence in all transactions is evidenced by her accomplishments, consistently being named a Top Producer since 2002. Texas Monthly has awarded her a Five Star Client Satisfaction Award for the past five years based on independent surveys of buyers and sellers, ranking her service among the top three percent of approximately 40,000 agents in the Greater Houston area.

With an extensive background in quality management and corporate relocation, Rita knows that to make a sound decision, a client needs to make an informed decision, particularly in an environment of constant change. Using her resourcefulness and creativity, she offers the benefit of her knowledge, combined with the most current market data to partner with her clients. Keeping the process as uncomplicated as possible with straight forward communication while providing personal one on-one-service, is Rita's approach to first time as well as seasoned buyers and sellers. Because of her commitment to high standards of quality, Rita is an Accredited Buyer's Representative (ABR), a Certified Luxury Home Specialist (CLHS,) a Certified Negotiating Expert (CNE) and an Accredited Staging Professional

Although Rita has been licensed for over thirty years, she views each transaction as a learning opportunity, one she can use to help evaluate and refine the systems she has set up to deliver superior customer service. By doing so, she has built her business through a wide network of referrals from her client base and strong working relationships within the broker community.

A consummate professional, Rita's successful career has taken her throughout the Greater Houston, Katy and Fulshear areas, specializing in corporate relocation, resale marketing and new home sales. A Houston resident since 1964 and a Katy resident since 1984, she has witnessed the city's dynamic growth first hand, watching new communities develop and older communities rejuvenate. International travel and living experiences in other countries have enhanced her understanding of the challenges presented to families moving to or from the U.S. As one client sums up his experience: Rita is an exceptional professional. Her knowledge and customer service is second to none!

Rita is the best!

Rita has been outstanding for us. We would recommend her to family and friends. If we need to move again, we would be getting Rita to handle the sale of our house. We have worked with many realtors in the pass and nobody has been able to surpass our expections. The big reason Rita did was very simple. It was not just a transaction it was truly about finding the right home for our family. She took the time and energy to include our little 7 years old boy. When someone pays attention to the little details of your child you know that person truly cares about you. Rita is this type of person and just a wonderful person!! We can not say enough about her!!! THANK YOU RITA!!!
