Satisfied Client Testimonies
Exceeding Your Expectations in action
Gary and I would like to thank you for all your assistance in finding the right home in the right community for our family. Without a doubt you were the right agent to help us get everything we wanted in our home and community. Your familiarity of the area as well as your valuable knowledge of what to look for in a well built home was very important in our home selection. Your daily email updates provided us with a large selection of homes to choose from based on the criteria that we selected. On our trip to Houston to go through our selected possible homes with you, you were able to spot things that either were no longer up to "code", or that may be a future problems that further guided us. Once we found the "one" you were there to negotiate on our behalf to ensure we got a fair and marketable price. We also appreciated your professionalism and prompt response to all of our emails or phone calls throughout the process. Stress can run high during a relocation and home buying but having you on our side gave us the confidence right through closing.
We will highly recommend others to you with their home buying needs. Thank you again!
Sincerely, Gary and Susan Messmer League City, Texas
Testimonial for James Potenza, An Exclusive Buyer’s Agent at Texas Buyer Realty
Our family was facing a significant life change as a result of a new job and eventual relocation from Michigan to Texas. For the past three months one of us was working and living in Texas commuting home to Michigan on alternate weekends. Soon after starting the new job in Texas we found James Potenza on the internet. Within 5 minutes of submitting our information, James contacted us. We had a great initial conversation with him and it was immediately obvious that he was friendly, helpful, very knowledgeable about the area and receptive to our interests and concerns, taking our priorities into account. After shopping around for other agents for a few days, it was clear that James was head and shoulders above the rest and we chose him to represent us during this important, exciting and at times, stressful period in our lives. What a great decision that was!
James sent us a great deal of info on the area, and on current listings that fit our description of our needs and what we were looking for in our next home and community (including good schools which was very important to us). Based on this internet/e-mail/phone dialog we selected a 3-4 cities and communities to consider in our search. James was very accommodating and bent over backwards to work with our schedule and constraints. He spent a Saturday with me on the weekend following my first week on the job to drive around the areas we were considering, viewing homes and getting a feel of the communities and potential commute times and conditions I could expect to get to work. This was a very productive and effective exercise, as we were able to narrow our search down to one area...Sienna Plantation in Missouri City. We would get daily updates of any new listings and properties that would come up. Even when we could not be around, James was working to check out/visit properties and would send us his appraisal and opinion of what he saw relative to our interests and needs.
We did our multiple-day house hunting trip in late March, 2011. We needed to bring our family on this trip and James was great with the kids. He was patient with our three little boys and even gave them a little treat at the end of a long first day touring houses. That made quite an impression on all of us. James is very knowledgeable, informed and was clearly looking out for our best interests during the whole process. For example, James would spend time looking at things in the house we would not have thought to look at or look for (e.g. air conditioning unit quality, vents, ducts, climbing into the attic, hot water heater, insulation, water barriers etc.) and the general quality of how things were put together and kept. This informed eye was extremely beneficial to our making a good choice on our new home. When time came to make an offer on a home, James negotiation skills helped us get a great deal on a beautiful new home. He also lined up an inspector, and was present during the inspector on our behalf since we could not be there. He also followed up with the inspector and the builder, to ensure that issues were addressed to our satisfaction.
And now, we are about to move into our new home! We loved working with James and would highly recommend him to anyone. He is always accessible and very responsive, and being a buyer’s agent, has the best interest of the buyer in mind as he works. James is helpful and proactive; he did everything he could to reduce work and stress for us during the whole process. And recently he sent us an 8x10 picture of our new house with card and a Texas flag to congratulate and welcome us to our new home.
Thank you James!

It is our pleasure to recommend the services of James Potenza to any home buyer in the Pearland, TX area. He assisted us in the recent purchase of our home and we greatly appreciated his attention to detail, knowledge, and no-pressure approach.
Because we moved from another state, James’s knowledge about the area’s properties, subdivisions, HOAs, taxes, pricing, etc. was simply invaluable to us. He gave us a lot of relevant information and helped us find a beautiful home in a very nice and quiet neighborhood, with convenient access to the highway, shopping and other amenities.
James was very attentive to the parameters we set for our search. Not only was he able to create personalized email notifications sent to us with relevant listings, but also was patient with us to show us multiple houses, while providing valuable technical information about each property.
His professionalism let us place our full confidence in the way he guided us through the entire process, recommended home and pest inspectors (both of whom provided very good service to us), and took care of all the necessary paperwork. He even assisted with negotiations, which saved us a decent amount of money.
Thanks to James, our home-buying experience was quick and smooth. We are extremely satisfied with the purchase and will definitely contact James for any future real estate needs.

Buying a home is one of the biggest financial decisions that most anyone will do in their lifetime. A realtor is everything. They can make or break this financial decision. So with that comes apprehension.
I'd dealt with another realtor and it was high pressure tactics and wanting me to sign a contract to exclusively deal with them...what?? Really turned me off but I needed a home. Then I stumbled across James on the internet….great testimonials from previous clients and no contracts, so I gave him a call.
James explained his philosophy...how many houses it takes however long it takes. He would not be satisfied till I found the just right home.
I liked the internet search site that he set up for me. I could look at homes on my time frame and schedule walk-throughs accordingly. After our first batch of house hunting, I was impressed. James was what his web site said he was. What a relief. He wasn't just about the aesthetics of the house, he would look at construction as well as going into the attic and looking at the condition of the HVAC systems. Never heard of a realtor do that before. James would point out positives as well as negatives but never try to influence my decision. I really felt like he had my back!
On the second round of house hunting I found the just right one! James negotiated the deal, followed through on all details, and kept me informed every step of the way. The closing went without even as much as a hiccup.
What a pleasurable experience. Confidence in your realtor is everything and James earned it every step of the way!
One thing that I especially appreciated about working with you was that I never felt pressured about taking so long to finally find the house we wanted. We felt badly that you had to drive such a long way to show us homes but you never seemed annoyed about it and I appreciated that. You were always easy to get a hold of and generally quick to respond. During the offer process (both times) you kept us informed every step of the way. That was very nice. Thanks for working with us!

James Potenza is an excellent agent. He made the process smooth and non-stressful. James let the property sell itself and always pointed out the positive and negative aspects so we could make an informed decision. There was never any pressure to buy and he encouraged us to take our time and shop around. James definitely had our best interest in mind throughout the entire buying process. We will certainly refer him to our friends and relatives.

I was very glad to have James recommended as my realtor. He went above and beyond to help me accomplish my dream of being a homeowner. He was there every step of the way and was always following up with the other parties involved with my closing.
I believe because of James' hard work, my closing was possible.
Yvette Teniente, Pearland TX.
James was an excellent agent for us. His patience and thoroughness always shone through and he had to be patient indeed with us. He was always ready to answer questions and give his thoughts on matters pertaining to the houses we looked at. And when we encountered difficulties in closing, he consistently handled the issues in the best way possible. We're happy in our home now and very glad we went through a buyer's agent.
M. Hoff Seabrook, TX
During my recent and successful search for a house in the Pearland area, James Potenza provided outstanding customer service.
His knowledge of the advantages and disadvantages of the specific neighborhoods that I was interested in was particularly beneficial in steering me to the best choice. As a local homeowner he is particularly sympathetic to the issues that typically arise during the purchase process.
Being both a first-time home buyer and new to the Houston area, I feel very lucky to have found James. James was knowledgeable about the area in which I was looking to buy and very helpful in educating me about the buying process. He made sure he was available on the one weekend that I was able to fly to the area to look at homes. Once I found the house that was literally everything I could have hoped for in a first home, James ensured that the race toward our closing date proceeded smoothly. Now that I’m settled in my new home, I have to say that to call myself a satisfied client is an understatement, and that I am grateful to have found such an outstanding Realtor.

After accepting a new job opportunity, we found ourselves relocating from Delaware to Texas. We were concerned about the move as we didn't know anything or anyone in our new area. James came to us highly recommended by a co-worker who also experienced a similar relocation recently. Moving is stressful enough without starting a new job or moving halfway across the country but James' knowledge of the area and the builders made the whole process much easier. We were able to describe the type of house and neighborhood we wanted and James was quickly able to identify the areas that would best suit these wants and needs. During the house hunt portion, James made himself available to our limited availability and tight time schedule to find the perfect house for us. During the negotiation phase, he obtained a fantastic price for us as well as additional amenities. During the inspection phase, he helped work through all of the issues which were identified. Lastly, when we had to be out of town to close out our old home, James kept on top of everything to ensure the process continued smoothly in our absence.
Anything we needed, James took care of it. We are pleased to be able to recommend his services to any other clients but especially to those relocating to the area.

My wife & I recently
purchased a home in the Clear Lake area with James Potenza as our
homebuyer's agent. We couldn't have asked for a better agent: James was
courteous, professional, and patient throughout the entire process (and
especially patient when we had our 4-year-old along to look at houses
with "Mr. James"!). Since we were moving from out-of-state, we greatly
appreciated how he made himself completely available to us during the
limited time we had for house-hunting. It was evident that he was
sincerely interested in finding a home that met our needs, and not just
trying to have us buy a house. He was particularly patient and
courteous when we needed to step back and reassess what exactly we were
looking for in our next home. Once we had made a decision, he was
prompt in submitting the offer and professional in guiding us through
the closing process. James Potenza was hands-down the best agent we
have ever worked with, and I highly recommend him for anyone looking to
buy a home in Houston.
We recently closed on a home in Pearland utilizing the assistance of
James Potenza as our Buyer's Agent. We couldn't have been happier with
anyone else. James proved to be instrumental in guiding us through the
entire process from showcasing to closing. James is extremely
knowledgeable in market research, is very courteous, and diligent. He
genuinely took an interest in us and quickly determined what we were
looking for. When we needed breaks he stepped back but more importantly
when things got rolling fast, James shown through for us by staying
focused on our needs. He helped us find another lender a week before
closing after ours had been dragging their feet. James is a
professional and we highly recommend him to anyone shopping for a home.
We just wanted to write and thank you for the excellent service you provided during our recent relocation.
We were faced with the overwhelming task of moving to a State we were unfamiliar with; to a city we had never even visited. Because of your expertise and knowledge of the home buying industry and your wonderful user friendly web site this process was relatively stress free. We checked your website often and found it current and extensive making it easy to compare prices and availability in all the districts surrounding our target area. Once we had established a profile of the type of property we were looking for your daily emails of homes fitting our criteria made it fun and easy to weed out the chaff.
The best part was when we actually traveled the 1200 miles for the purpose of making a purchase you realized that time was of the essence and made your self available to us for the entire holiday weekend. Nothing was too much trouble and our every request was met. You had appointments scheduled in advance so as not to waste any of our precious time and had alternative plans when things went awry.
Lastly we would like to thank you for helping us negotiate an excellent deal with the builder of our choice. You facilitated us a contract far in excess of our expectations while keeping everything calm and businesslike. We felt you were truly out to look after our best interests and it was a pleasure to have you as our representative.
In the unlikely event that we will be making another move in this area we would not hesitate to call on your services again and you can be sure that we will be recommending you to anyone we come across needing a homebuyer’s agent.
Thank you so much for making our relocation as painless and fun as it could possibly be. We count you as our first new friend that we made in Texas.
Janet and David Hambleton - League City, TX
James Potenza was on time and on target in helping us find a great house in the limited timeline that we presented him with. He was with us every step of the way, from negotiation to closing, and always ensured that our best interest was a top priority. We ended up with a great house in a great neighborhood and couldn't be happier! A buyers agent is truly the way to go, thanks again James!

Thank you very much for helping Sonya and I find our first home. You are professional, knowledgeable, and we appreciated your honesty. Your attentiveness prompted me to cancel appointments with other realtors I had contacted. You kept us updated and answered all of our questions through out the whole process which kept us at ease. Your research of the area helped us locate the perfect house for us. I will recommend you to anyone in search of a home in your area.
My wife and I went through James for our first house together in League City. James came highly recommended and he was great!! This was my wife's first house but I had owned two other houses before. James is by far one of the best realtors I have worked with. James always pointed out the possible problems with the houses we looked at and was always ready with answers to any questions we had.
We really liked the fact that James was always courteous, punctual and extremely knowledgeable. James always had his research done for the houses we wanted to look at and more than once steered us clear of houses that looked great on paper but were in bad neighborhoods, built by problematic builders, etc.
I learned more about houses by climbing into attics with James than I had in my previous five years of homeownership!
We highly recommend James to anyone looking for a
house in this area.
