While unprecedented flooding associated with Harvey has put a damper on the lives and livelihoods of many in the region, Montgomery County real estate is still a strong investment and opportunities exist for those who know where to look with the guidance of their real estate agent.
That’s the message from Ruth and Chad Stultz, founders of Ruth Stultz & Company Real Estate, a respected leader in real estate, whose services includes residential homes, waterfront & golf course properties, condos, town homes, commercial property, ranches and acreage sites − serving the area from Spring to Huntsville, Magnolia to Kingwood with an emphasis on the Lake Conroe area.
“The inventory of available homes has been diminished and the demand for properties has gone up significantly with sales and rentals, ” said Ruth. “Some are selling because of damage or seeking a change in location. For others, the current peak demand is a good opportunity to put their home on the market and move up or down to a newer or larger or smaller home that better suits their needs.
The Montgomery County area exudes success because of its lifestyle and diversity. Lake Conroe has been dubbed “Houston’s Backyard Playground” with prices ranging from as little as $35K for a smaller condominium to over $7 million in the luxury home category. From small lots to countryside acreage, waterfronts, golf course and everything in between, we have it all right here in Montgomery County.
“With Montgomery/ Lake Conroe area having some of the best real estate opportunities, buyers from other states and countries are astounded at what they can purchase for their money in this area,” said Ruth. “It’s no wonder we’re one of the fastest growing counties in the country.”
Ruth and Chad have established their company to ensure business is done the way real estate business should be done. Ruth believes in the personal touches that can often be lost in a corporate real estate structured environment. She believes in personal interaction, hand written thank you notes, going over contracts in person to be sure nothing is lost or misunderstood and gives that personal individualized attention to every client.
“Dealing with real estate can be very challenging and impact one of the most important decisions of their lives. I don’t take it lightly. We’re not here just to make a sale, we’re here to build lasting relationships,” said Ruth. “Referral business is a huge key to our success,” she added.
The Ruth Stultz firm has proven its capabilities to be equally efficient in providing anything that a large corporation can provide. This diverse group of experienced agents is a strong family of professionals who have a lot of fun while doing serious work. When customers call Ruth Stultz and Company they’ll speak to an agent personally without getting lost in the electronic shuffle. Ruth Stultz and Company Real Estate is staffed with seasoned, professional agents and staff who live and sell in Montgomery County. These agents know the inventory available and use personal knowledge of each listing to their advantage to best represent a client, whether buying or selling.
Although Ruth embraces the Internet and social technology, she will tell you that while it is a strong, necessary tool today, it should not replace personal, one-on-one customer service.
“Email is great for passing information quickly, as a courtesy and for quick communication. But I believe it should be followed by a personal phone call to assure that the transmission was completed and to clarify the content if a customer has any questions,” Ruth insists. “Our agents always practice customer and client confidentiality protocol and a personal level of communications with every client.”
“The Lake Conroe area was only known as a resort town many years ago. Over the last 24 years in the real estate business here I’ve watched it evolve into full time residential communities for families of all age brackets,” said Ruth. “The Lake is a major draw still but the small hometown feeling that exists, the exemplary school districts that have emerged and the convenient access to medical facilities, shopping, dining and easy commute to work has put us on the map. At one time, Montgomery County and Lake Conroe was a ‘best kept secret,’ now we’re the best known place to live. Working in real estate is an amazing career and I love my job!”
Another key to their success is ……LOCATION!
Ruth Stultz & Co. Real Estate is centrally located in their market area with easy access on Texas 105 West, between Montgomery and Conroe. The company has a new look to better fit their image and has expanded due to their growth and for other agents wishing to join their team.
