Amena Elbarraj is from Beirut, Lebanon and has called Houston home for more than five years. Embracing Houston has been a pleasure as she has a degree in International Business from Lebanese American University. Loving meeting people from different cultures, Houston has been a perfect match for this very bright realtor that speaks English, French and Arabic.
Having worked for a top producer that was number three in a real estate company, she has firsthand knowledge of the process associated with every step of a real estate transaction. Amena feels a home is the largest single purchase most people will make in their lifetime. It is a very personal decision and she is more than gratified when her clients include her in this very important aspect of their lives. Her love of beautiful architecture helps in guiding her clients to the home of their dreams. She is quick to relate a quote that she believes to be true, “Buying real estate is not only the best way, the quickest way, the safest way, but the only way to become wealthy.”
Armed with tremendous energy, integrity and a very positive attitude she has lead her clients to embrace a quote from Franklin D. Roosevelt, “Real estate cannot be lost or stolen, nor can it be carried away. Purchased with common sense, paid for in full, and managed with reasonable care, it is about the safest investment in the world.”
Amena is married and has a daughter and a son. She cherishes her time with them and volunteers at The Awty International School assisting with the Gala Fund and the International Festival. She is in the Lau Alumni Community. Traveling to Orange County, California where her family owns a home, is an activity that Amena looks forward to every summer as she enjoys the beautiful weather and spending time in this gorgeous state. Cooking is a passion and she especially likes to prepare Mediterranean dishes that include tabbouleh and hummus.
