Realtor Spotlight


Being a fourth generation native Houstonian, Shawn's work is also his passion! His great grandfather settled in the Houston Heights around 1917, operating a small dental office out of his home. His grandfather Dr. Ralph Taylor later followed in his footsteps by opening his own dental office at the corner of 20th and Ashland across from Heights Hospital, where a parking lot now sits. Shawn's mother Diane Manderscheid (a Taylor when growing up in the Heights) was raised in the Heights at 1648 Harvard Street, now home to the famed "Pumpkin House". Being a Real Estate broker for over 25 years, Diane was instrumental in bringing Shawn into the family business that he continues to carry on today along with his partner Paula.

As a licensed Real Estate Professional for 20+ years performing in the Top 1% of Houston Realtors and HBJ's Top 25 Agents in Houston, Shawn is truly a treasure in the real estate field. He believes in building long term relationships based on honesty and trust, and he's passionate about providing his clients with a level of service that exceeds their expectations ('s not all about the money for him).

Most people probably think he can be found lounging around the pool most days with a Crown & Sprite (well now it's actually a Crown & Club Soda...sweetened with Stevia) in his hands just living the good life with Paula and his furry babies but that's definitely not reality. Shawn typically works a 12-15 hour day and wears many hats from confidant, to trusted advisor, to consummate optimist and yes...sometimes even a Counselor of Sorts. Through it all he wears a smile on his face and feels gratitude through all of it.


He enjoys frequenting all types of Houston events, especially ones that involve live music (Shawn is a self proclaimed musician despite not playing any instruments). Shawn is passionate about basketball and has been playing the game since he was twelve years old. It has instilled patience and focus in him which he applies to his work daily. He can still be found playing in a league alongside retired Rockets players. He's also pretty darn good at pool which his dad taught him to play when he was younger. He loves to travel and actually keeps a map on the wall of his home office detailing travels and where he would still like to visit one day. His two furry doggies (no kiddos as of yet) are a huge (and that's not an understatement) part of his life and he's an avid animal lover.

Josalyn J. Cano

My name is Josalyn J. Cano, I've been in the real estate industry since August 2014. During this time I've worked both directly with clients "out in the field" as well as behind the scenes as support for top producing agents and brokers, closing hundreds of transactions either as primary agent or integral team member and have reviewed countless contracts for other agents. With over 350 hours of credited real estate education (plus non-credited)- I'm kind of a nerd. The education and experienced I've gained allows me to see a whole picture instead of just a single piece. In turn I'm able to provide thorough information about the market using the latest technology and data analytics, explain contracts thoroughly, navigate clients through the buying / selling process, market homes throughout the web and social media, negotiate the best deal for clients, and provide great customer service.

I'm fluent in English and Spanish, tech-savvy, informed with laws & policy surrounding the real estate industry. Seller Representative Specialist (SRS) designee, NAHREP Houston Board member- Government Affairs chair, native Houstonian, AA degree in Merchandise Marketing. I'd love the opportunity to help you with all your real estate needs.

Melissa Baker Houston Realtor
Ask others what they think about Melissa Baker, the response will be a long list of superlatives that includes tireless, eager, compassionate, committed, reliable, and lots of fun. They’ll say she is a hard worker, the kind of person who will take initiative when no one else will, and one who strongly believes in the power of positive thinking.

At the end of 2016 she was recognized as one of the top producers in the Cypress Office. Part of her success is due to her participation in The nationally recognized Ninja Skills Workshop where she learned the tools it takes to become a trusted real estate adviser. That experience led her to be honored as one of the top producers company wide for two of the quarters in 2017.

A former flight attendant, Melissa learned much of what’s needed to be successful at selling real estate while flying above it. First, of course, was the importance of good customer service. No flight was ever the same and anything could happen, so flexibility, good organization and patience were a must! Through the international routes she flew, she learned a lot about diplomacy and working with people of different cultures.

As a mother who raised three children in the Cy-Fair area, she certainly knows the needs of growing families – whether it’s housing requirements, schools, shopping, and access to sports, or neighborhood amenities, available activities and businesses that cater to families. She is and always has been extremely involved in her community and schools through volunteer work.

Her philanthropic nature led her to join National Charity League, Cypress Belles Chapter, where she was very involved for 10 years, she served many board positions including president. As mother/daughter charitable organization, it has given her the opportunity to serve her community alongside her daughters.

Add to that, her membership in a book club, two tennis teams and her board membership on the BlackHorse Ranch’s HOA, she’s a veritable whirlwind of positive activity.

Tammy Bateman Houston Realtor
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! Recently, Tammy 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. A consistent top producing Realtor, 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.

Although Tammy’s main sales focus is the Memorial Villages, including Spring Valley Village and neighborhoods inside Loop-610, she 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 and with her two boys enjoying sports and travel.
