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."
