Gisele Waters

Gisele Waters is a citizen of the world who is proud to say she now lives in Houston. Gisele’s father worked in the oil and gas industry and moved the family around the world. Born in Ecuador, Gisele is fluent in English, Spanish and French. “Everyone in my family is at least bilingual and many are multi-lingual. Different languages and cultures have always been an important part of my life,” she says.

As with many of the best real estate professionals, Gisele was a teacher for many years prior to beginning her real estate career. Her years in academia taught her to pay attention to details, to demand the best from herself and others, and to be persistent and tenacious. Gisele’s data-driven, analytical research background helps her to process information comprehensively, a decided advantage in the ever-changing real estate market. She has earned the Certified Negotiation Expert (CNE), Accredited Luxury Home Specialist (ALHS) and Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR) designations. Gisele pushes herself to exceed her clients’ expectations through every step of a real estate transaction from contact through negotiations, contract management and, ultimately, closing and follow-up. “Every stage demands uncompromising focus,” she states.

Within Houston’s Oak Forest subdivision, Gisele works with Oak Forest homeowners and general contractors to formulate a strategic development program for future new construction in the area. In addition, Gilsele has gained a broad base of contemporary and modern home expertise in terms of eco-building practices, particularly geo-thermal homes, the economic cost structures of eco-construction, and current market values.

Gisele holds a bachelor of arts in economics from the University of Texas at Austin; a master of education, special education, from the University of Houston; and a doctorate in educational psychology, second language acquisition, from Auburn University. Gisele serves as a board member for the Clay Arts Museum Education Organization (CAMEO) and is an active member and volunteer for the Italian and German-American chambers of commerce. Gisele also enjoys playing with her King Charles spaniels, painting, exercising, traveling, movies, and reading.
