Luxury Homes and Real Estate - Sotheby’s International Realty

Houston, Texas

Native Houstonian and real estate broker C.W. Ross, known as “The HomeCoach,” has a real estate pedigree rivaled by few. In addition to C.W.’s personal 30-plus years of Houston real estate experience, which includes many years as a broker/owner, his father was a homebuilder and broker in Houston, his mother was also a broker, and his grandfather and great-grandfather dealt in real estate.

Houston is probably the most diverse and complex real estate market in the country. C.W. has lived in downtown, Midtown, near The Texas Medical Center, Meyerland and, of course, Fort Bend County. His vast historical knowledge of the city and his commitment to educating clients about Houston’s idiosyncrasies and trends helps clients gain focus, define their goals and feel confident when it is time to take action. C.W.’s philosophy extends to all clients regardless of price-point, whether they are high-level corporate transferees, first-time home buyers, or investors looking for income-producing properties to diversify their portfolio. His enviable repeat and multi-generational business is a testimony to the client confidence he inspires.

C.W. works extensively with major third-party relocation companies that move employees in and out of the Houston Metropolitan Area. He understands the stress of a transfer, especially an unanticipated one, and the anxieties involved for a trailing spouse and family.

The extensive research done by C.W. for banks and asset managers to determine property values gives him the knowledge, experience and confidence to guide sellers in determining realistic values/prices for their homes. Realistic list prices achieve higher sales prices in a shorter time span and homes do not go stale on the market. C.W. is also very experienced in working with foreclosures and short sales.

C.W. holds a Bachelor of Science from the Hilton School of Hotel and Restaurant Management of the University of Houston. He has been married to his wife Ann for more than 25 years. Ann has been a teacher for nearly 30 years and she and C.W. have a grown daughter and son who attended Ft. Bend County public schools and then Texas A & M University. Daughter Shannon married a fellow TAMU graduate who is a pilot in the U. S. Marine Corp. She trains birds at the Texas State Aquarium and hopes to train animals at Sea World Texas in the future. Son Charles is a junior at TAMU and a communications major.

C.W. stays abreast of changes in real estate law and procedures and optimizes the latest industry technologies and tools, but he always believes that the old-fashioned Texas handshake is the best kind of business model.
