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

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!

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.
