Amy Bernstein was recently interviewed by The Houston Chronicle regarding the company’s services and experience assisting clients with many real estate needs.
Since 1985, Bernstein Realty has assisted buyers, sellers, tenants, and landlords with their real estate needs that span all areas of Houston, and in all price ranges.
Amy Bernstein opened her real estate company with two agents and a vision. She worked diligently to build her business and provide excellent service to her clients. Soon, the company saw phenomenal growth. Today, Bernstein Realty has over 50 agents, many from all over the world.
Today, the firm’s services include residential sales, new construction and resale, leasing, corporate relocation, property management, and apartment locating.
“Our relocation director manages our relocation department, and she relocated from England. She understands the challenges those relocating to Houston may have, if they are coming from other parts of the state, country or overseas,” said Amy Bernstein, president, Bernstein Realty.
The relocation department works with corporations, relocation companies from around the world and transferees and their families. Clients are provided community information and assistance with their real estate needs.
“We assist those relocating to Houston, and we are there for them in all ways. Not just in finding a home, but we serve as an ambassador for the city. We also help them find a corporate apartment if needed, until they move into their home. We also continue to be a source of information as long as they are in Houston,” Bernstein said.
“With those leaving Houston, we provide home sales services, leasing services and property management,” Bernstein said.
Bernstein’s Property Management department manages properties for owners living in or out of the city.
“We take care of leasing the property, along with make-ready, accepting rental payments, handling any repairs, and ensuring the landlord/ tenant relationship operates smoothly,” Bernstein said.
Bernstein Realty also works with builders by assisting in lot sections, and designs that meet the needs of today’s buyers.
“We also assist the client in reviewing floor plans, possible upgrades, finishes, all the way through closing,” Bernstein said.
Resale homes also keep Bernstein agents busy, with local and relocating buyers and sellers. Agents work with these clients to understand the market, finding the right home, price determination, contract negotiations, inspections, and everything leading up to and all the way through to closing.
“We are very involved with our clients, and we are with them every step of the way. One of the pleasures of real estate is the friendships that are made. Long after the closing, the friendships continue,” Bernstein said.
We also have a marketing department that handles our advertising, marketing, social media, mailings, and so much more,” Bernstein said.
The accounting and compliance department ensures contracts and paperwork are in order and in compliance.
Bernstein is involved in the daily operations of the company, and continues to sell and list properties, with the support of her two assistants, who she calls “amazing.”
Today, Bernstein Realty is recognized as one of Houston’s leading boutique real estate firms.
“I am so proud of all of our agents and our staff. They amaze me every day with the high-level of customer service they provide and all they do for our clients. I love what I do and I am honored to be in this industry, to work with the amazing agents and staff at Bernstein Realty, and our clients,” Bernstein said.
