Broker / Owner
When Native Texan Tammy Bateman started as a Realtor she found, as predicted by a friend, that she was a "natural." She remembers that he went down the list of her qualifications: ability to analyze and negotiate; professionalism; strong ethics; sense of style; and ability to work with people in all walks of life. It was a defining moment for Tammy who took the plunge and received her Texas real estate license in 2000 and her brokers license in 2010!
In May, 2009, Tammy opened her exciting new company located INSIDE the HEB to be right in the community, ready and available to everyone! Tammy then saw the need to adjust to the changing market in Houston and find ways to meet her clients' needs better, so the office physically moved into first-floor walk-up space in Hedwig Village.
Tammy's career has been a resounding success. She understands that a solid reputation builds good repeat and referral business, which she enjoys in abundance. Tammy realizes that in a fast-changing, competitive market like Houston's, it is imperative to stay abreast of market conditions and changes. She continues to do her research and attends real estate seminars in addition to any advanced real estate related education. Tammy holds the coveted Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist (CLHMS) designation.
Tammy believes one of her primary strengths is her ability to relate with all people, no matter their background or where they live. "I sell homes anywhere in the city, regardless of price or location," she says. "My forte is finding exactly what clients want and negotiating to get it. I love a challenge and I love helping my clients."
Tammy grew up in the Beaumont-Port Arthur area and holds a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a minor in Psychology from the University of Houston, both fields helping her immensely in the successful practice of real estate. She is a major underwriter for her local schools; passionate about giving back. Tammy participates in the annual MS150 to support multiple sclerosis. Tammy also enjoys animals and any opportunity to foster or rescue them. Tammy's free time is spent entertaining, at her beach house, with her two boys enjoying sports and travel.
Tammy is a consistent top-producing broker and is repeatedly featured by Texas Monthly as a Five Star Profile winner!
