Luis Flores measures his success as a Realtor not by closings but by the affection, loyalty and referrals he receives from his growing network of clients. “Luis is a fantastic Realtor,” writes one seller. “He was responsive, professional and courteous. I have recommended Luis in the past and will do so in the future.” “Mr. Flores was very patient and knowledgeable when we were looking for our home,” writes a buyer. “We never felt like he was pushing us to close a deal. He was really easy and pleasant to work with and the whole process was a breeze thanks to him.”

Perhaps it is Luis’s training from his previous career as a teacher, or just his naturally easy-going temperament, but patience is definitely one of his strengths along with honed negotiation skills and a streak of protectiveness toward his clients. “I am a good communicator and believe that communication is the key,” he says. “It is so important that clients be fully-informed every step of the way. I also look out for them, and their interests always come first with me.

Luis looks forward to seeing the smiles on his clients’ faces when they realize that he’s found them the right house or brought them an offer for the right price. “I love being invited to house-warming parties and seeing my buyers turn their new house into a home or being an important part of helping my sellers move forward with their plans.”

Luis grew up in the East End and attended the Debakey High School for Health Professions. He graduated from the University of Houston with a Bachelor’s degree in psychology and a minor concentration in Spanish. He pursued a Master’s degree in clinical psychology at Texas A & M and studied Latin American Studies as an exchange student at the Universidad De Vina del Mar in Chile. Luis speaks fluent Spanish and, as a young teacher, spent three years teaching in American private schools in Mexico.

Married and the father of three children, Luis and his family live in Katy. Their Christmas tradition includes personally delivering clothing, food and toys to families in remote and underprivileged areas of Mexico. Luis enjoys playing golf in charity tournaments and camping, swimming, fishing, cycling and playing sports with his children.
