The perfect Texas real estate agent for you

The agents we select for our list represent the top 0.1% to 0.5% of their area. Put another way, for every 1,000 agents in a city, just 1 to 5 meet our strict criteria.

We don’t just compare them to the average agent either, that would be like comparing the Dallas Cowboys to a high school team. Instead, we compare them to each other, ensuring that only the very best make our list.

"My Clever Real Estate agent referral sold my house quickly after it had sat on the market for 6 months with no offers under a different highly recommended listing agent. Very pleased with the agent’s performance. Results were better, and for a considerably lower commission than the non-Clever realtor I initially listed with."

In Texas, an average of 43,287 homes are available for sale each month. Of those, 52,334 are sold.

So buyers have plenty of options, but if you’re selling, you'll need to find a way to make your home stand out from all that competition.

In either case, a top agent in Texas can help you put your best foot forward and help you negotiate the best possible deal.
