Ratings & Reviews

The true mark of good service is how things are handled when something goes wrong. Based on a recommendation, I asked Blake to list my house. We had a great talk and a few days later I had to change plans and not sell the house based on reasons beyond my control. I called him to tell him and he was not very nice and quite upset. We had never met nor signed any kind of agreement other than our initial discussion over the phone. An associate called the next day with the same news and he just flipped out and started screaming. I heard later that he had possibly listed the house and spent some marketing money prior to getting a listing agreement. Beware. I'm sure he's a sweet boy as long as things go his way.

Bought a home in 2011 in Greater Heights, Houston, TX 77007.

Blake made the house hunting experience a pleasure. He did a great job of selecting potential houses and scheduling showings at convenient times. His comments were insightful and demonstrated his expertise and awareness of my needs and wants in a new home. He also did an awesome job selling my old house, gaining me a better price than I had expected. He also provided information and support to make the transition and moving experience a less stressful time. I would definitely recommend Blake to my friends!

Sold a Single Family home in 2010 in Oak Forest - Garden Oaks, Houston, TX.

Blake Hillegeist has worked with both of us for over 10 years. We have bought and sold numerous properties (around 7) with the help of Blake. Blake has also assisted us in leasing properties we have in Houston. In addition, he has helped several friends sell there homes in a matter of weeks when they have had their homes listed with other agents for months with no signs of a interested buyers. Blake is a master at marketing a property. He is always very professional and is able to negotiate the best price and terms.

Bought a home in 2011 in Neartown - Montrose, Houston, TX 77006.

Blake was professional in every way. In our case, we had found the house we wanted on our own (in the Montrose area). Blake was the listing agent, but his knowledge of the house and the process was impressive, and we ended up using him as our agent as well. Initially, we had some concerns about this dual agency arrangement, but throughout the entire process we never felt under-represented and always felt we were treated fairly and our interests were protected. He was honest and forthright. We could see the things we liked about the house, but he also pointed out deficiencies that weren't so obvious. He is virtually a one-man operation--no working through secretaries or associates to get to him. We had no problems with communication. Contact was easy and response time was quick. His guidance was authoritative, educated, and capable of being explained. Never once, in response to our many questions, did he say "Because I said so" or "Just trust me." He explained everything in as much detail as we needed to feel comfortable. He was on top of the financing, the inspection, and the many deadlines, ensuring that the closing stayed right on schedule. He was always proactive, anticipating our needs, addressing them, making recommendations. We got a great house, at a good price, with minimal frustration and hassle. Blake Hillegeist has integrity, a strong work ethic, and a real passion for property.
