Third-generation Houstonian and Martha Turner Properties Circle of Excellence award-winner Mary Elizabeth Hahnfeld provides her clients with excellent first-hand working knowledge of Houston neighborhoods. Her consistent top production, disciplined work ethic, and undeniably engaging personality have made her the recipient of company and industry awards including the Martha Turner Properties Hall of Fame and Houston Business Journal’s Top 25 Individual Realtors.
Although Mary Elizabeth is exceedingly unassuming, she holds the distinction of selling the most expensive home in River Oaks in both 2009 and 2010, non-MLS sales that remain two of the highest River Oaks sales to-date. Mary Elizabeth lists and sells luxury homes primarily in River Oaks, Tanglewood, the Memorial Villages and close-in Memorial, and West University Place. Her low-key demeanor and respect for everyone’s privacy make her especially suited for clients who call for the utmost discretion, and she is particularly adept at handling the requirements of international clients with sophisticated real estate portfolios.
Sellers benefit from Mary Elizabeth’s extensive market knowledge, enviable network of contacts both within and outside of her profession, and her ability to help them correctly stage their homes for their target buyers. She stresses the importance of informing buyer-clients about all facets of life in a particular neighborhood, from real estate statistics to shopping and leisure patterns. Mary Elizabeth strongly believes that this approach empowers buyers and allows them to make an informed purchase decision.
In addition to a busy real estate career, Mary Elizabeth continues a family tradition of civic involvement and philanthropy.
