About us

Deveau Realty Team

The Deveau Realty Team at Compass is a husband and wife team that works hard to go above and beyond on behalf of our clients every day.  Both members of the team are not your average agents.  Jihye is a Luxury Home Specialist, a Certified Negotiation Expert, an Accredited Buyer’s Representative and was in the top 1% of all Houston agents in 2018 and 2019.  John is a Certified Public Accountant, has an MBA from Rice University, has personally invested in single-family, multiplexes and small commercial properties for the last 10 years and comes from a family that owned a remodeling construction company for 40+ years.  Deveau Realty isn’t just a team that can list your house or take you to showings; we have the skills to help you assess the tax implications of the transaction, advise you on what is critical from an inspection report and give you advice gained from education and experience that are hard to find elsewhere.

When buying or selling in the Heights you don’t want to work with just any Realtor, but a Realtor that knows the area intimately.  Jihye and John live in the Heights, have invested in multiple properties in the Heights and have helped many buyers and sellers with smooth transactions.   

For buyers we can provide you with a wealth of information about real estate trends and area amenities, including schools, parks, restaurants and local shopping.  The Heights has some unique rules with regards to property renovations, and whether a property in the historic district is designated as contributing or non-contributing can make all the difference to a Buyer.  Several other neighborhoods in the Greater Heights area also have deed restrictions which a buyer will want to know.  Don’t make the mistake of going at it alone.  Work with a Realtor that knows the rules and can help you in buying the property that is right for you.

For sellers we are able to best market your property by highlighting to potential clients the great features of the neighborhoods and your home.  And being agents with Compass, the brokerage with the largest market share in the Heights, we have a network that is unparalleled.  Our firms’ marketing material and technology assets give us an advantage in the marketing of your home.  

Having a licensed Realtor is important for any buyer or seller of real estate, from helping to determine market price, to negotiation, to guiding one through the contractual documents and the closing process.  But having one that has bought and sold multiple properties and has been personally active in the area you will be buying or selling in is even better.   There is a reason we have over 100+ 5 star reviews on har.com – we work hard to make sure our client’s goals become reality. 

Give us a call or send an email to set up a time for a free consultation.  We work hard to make our clients 100% satisfied and look forward to being your Realtor Team of choice.
