A native Houstonian who grew up in central Houston, Sheila Bourbeau fully understands how the city has changed and grown – just as she has in 37 years of selling residential real estate. Throughout almost 4 decades of serving buyers and sellers, she has gained valuable knowledge and experience that has expanded the range of services she can provide her clients.
Sheila focuses much of her time on corporate relocation, serving individuals and families new to Houston. Over the years, she has been privileged to work with first time buyers, professionals who have moved numerous times and the executive who needs a rapid introduction and orientation to the region. Sheila has worked with international clients, assisted companies with staff recruitment, and has been selected by corporations to serve as their lead agent for all incoming staff.
She also served selected hospitals with their physician recruitment though Heritage Texas Properties’ membership the MD Preferred Real Estate Network, a program she finds has greatly enhanced the healthcare part of her business. But she also enjoys a thriving business meeting the needs of local citizens simply wanting to move to new neighborhoods.
Sheila works hard to keep lines of communication open between her and her clients and, thanks to modern technology, offers immediate access via cell phone, e-mail, text messages, and the like. Such availability, and her practice of putting the client’s schedule and needs first, continues to bring praise and has resulted in consistent repeat and referral business.
Sheila feels that the trust and confidence that she builds with buyers, sellers, builders and developers are essential in maintaining excellence.
“People trust me to be honest with them throughout the buying or selling process,” she says. “The key to it is very simple - it’s really the good old fashioned work ethic.”
That philosophy has paid off for Sheila and, as a result, she has ranked among her company’s top producers year after year. In addition, she holds the prestigious Certified Residential Specialist (CRS®) and Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR®) professional designations.
In 2009, she was recognized as the #1 Agent in The Woodlands, having sold and closed more new homes than any other agent, but Sheila is well versed in all areas of metropolitan Houston.
Not limiting herself to a specific area of town permits her clients the benefit of being able to compare the advantages, locations, and amenities of various area communities before making a decision on a major investment.
“I ask a lot of questions of buyers and sellers and really listen to what they say. Often that leads to a different area of town in a quest to fulfill their desires and meet their objectives,” she adds.
Sheila Bourbeau is positive proof that the first important step to finding the home one wants, is finding the right Realtor®.
