Engel & Völkers Expands Presence in Texas

Thursday, July 26th, 2018 at 9:00am Engel & Völkers

Global real estate brand announces new location in the Lone Star state servicing Walker and Montgomery Counties

Engel & Völkers today announced the opening of its newest real estate shop in a suburb of Houston, Texas. Mari Realty will now do business as Engel & Völkers Huntsville – Lake Conroe under the leadership of license partner Mari Montgomery, who has been named a top producer in Walker County over the past six years. She has closed nearly 680 transactions and $100 million in volume over the course of her decade-long career in the real estate industry. Mari and her esteemed team will service home buyers and sellers in the markets of Huntsville, Conroe, Montgomery, Trinity, Onalaska, Point Blank, Dodge, Oakhurst, Coldspring, New Waverly, Willis and Livingston.

“Texas is rapidly evolving, and we are thrilled to now have eight locations in key markets throughout the state to bring a high level of real estate service to its communities,” said Anthony Hitt, president & CEO of Engel & Völkers Americas. “Just an hour outside of Houston, this announcement presents an exciting growth opportunity for our brand, especially as Conroe, Texas was named by® as the fastest growing city in the U.S. in 2017. Given her esteemed local expertise and proven dedication to exceptional client service, Mari was the ideal partner in expanding Engel & Völkers’ presence in Texas.”

Surrounded by the Sam Houston National Forest, home to both Lake Conroe and Lake Livingston, and abundant in hiking trails and state parks, this area is attracting people from many U.S. and international markets, in addition to those relocating for Sam Houston State University. Located just 45 minutes from the Houston International Airport, the area also boasts world class championship golf courses, plenty of land and a quaint downtown.

“I knew that if I wanted to achieve my full potential for professional excellence and elevate my business’ standard of service, I needed the right partner,” said Montgomery. “From the first time I received a business card, I knew Engel & Völkers was that partner. The brand’s commitment to excellence and delivering white-glove customer service mirrored my own, but I also knew it provided so much more. From the finest of details in its marketing materials to its robust resources for its network, with the added benefits of a global reach, I knew I needed Engel & Völkers’ best-in-class offerings for the next phase of my business.”

Engel & Völkers Huntsville – Lake Conroe’s first shop will be located in “The Avenues,” a historic neighborhood inhabited by long-time residents, students and newcomers alike.

“Our market is poised for growth,” added Montgomery. “It is the perfect time for an international brand like Engel & Völkers to uplevel the standard of service across the area. With so much available acreage that is full of natural beauty, Walker and Montgomery Counties are a quick escape from the hustle and bustle of Houston, whether buyers are looking to build or buy a horse ranch, purchase a second home on a lake or settle down with their families.”

Engel & Völkers operates a global network of over 10,000 real estate advisors in more than 30 countries. For more information, visit
