Top real estate team to focus on enhancing real estate services in the local area.

NOVEMBER 5, 2014 – SANTA ANA, CA – Carrington Real Estate Services, LLC (Carrington), a corporately owned and operated national brokerage, today announced that it has expanded its suite of services in Texas by adding an additional office in Houston to serve the real estate market in the greater Houston metro area. Under the direction of Local Office Leader Amber Carrillo and Team Leader Jay Raman, Carrington’s new Houston office has access through the Carrington business system to specialized training and the resources essential to succeed in today’s competitive market.

“Houston’s residential real estate market is growing at a tremendous pace, and we welcome such a strong partner to lead our new Houston team,” said Carrington Real Estate Services Executive Vice President and Head of Global Operations Wendy Forsythe. “With a proven track record of providing superior service to Houston’s real estate customers, Jay Raman and his team’s experience and knowledge of the regional landscape will ensure our clients receive an unparalleled home buying and selling experience, as we continue to attract top performing talent to our Houston operation.”

Drawing from their extensive industry knowledge, Carrington’s newest team in Houston will direct their efforts toward driving economic growth throughout the metro area. The full-service brokerage has effectively accommodated the real estate needs of its community since 2010, when it was established to broaden its scope of work within the local real estate local market.

“There’s an excellent synergy that exists between our community-driven brokerage and the Carrington brand,” said Raman. “We share a common philosophy in culture, brand development and expansion goals, as well as a background in asset management. Carrington’s expertise in working with investors and residential real estate customers, combined with its strategies for growth, offer our agents an opportunity to cultivate success and establish credibility with local consumers.”

Carrington’s local leadership team in Houston is uniquely positioned to support traditional as well as institutional real estate sales, as a result of their diversified background and deep roots in the investment and property management communities.
