Richard Elkowitz

Richard & Peggy:

Thank you so much for all of your hard work in helping us buy our new house.  The two of you are always on top of everything and are a real pleasure to work with.  We really appriciate it.  Thanks.

Ron and Mary Ann


Richard and Peggy:

We can't begin to express to you the gratitude we have for all the hard work you both did to get us into our new home. Almost every day since we've moved in I sit on my sofa, look around, and say, "I love our new home."  And it would not have been such a perfect fit for us had we not been blessed enough to work with such a talented, competent, caring pair.

Your care and honesty were evident in every step of this process, making what could have been a stressful situation very pleasant and exciting.  A thousand thanks to both of you and all the blessings you deserve.

Alaina & Jordan


I have been dealing with Richard Elkowitz since we bought our first home back in 1993, and our second in 1998, third in 2001 and last home just 6 months ago. His knowledge in the real estate business is unlimited, and his experience in the Houston / Katy markets is most valuable. Richard is a pleasure to deal with and depend on. His Office staff including Peggy and Carolyn, is very professional and helpful, they make everything seems so easy. I will always consider Richard Elkowitz and his staff to be the best in the business and for sure they will be the ones to call on when we are ready for our next home.

Thank you Richard and staff for making my "1st time homebuying" experience an easy and enjoyable one. Everything was wonderful and I appreciate all of your help and hard work.

I also want to thank you for helping my parents with their new home.  We couldn't have done it without you.

Erika and I have moved many times in our thirty years together. We have lived in Chile, Venezuela, Columbia, Rochester, NY, Corning, NY, Atlanta, Chicago and now Houston. We have obviously met many wonderful people during these past 30 years, and we both count ourselves blessed to have had Richard Elkowitz cross our paths.

Richard is simply a delightful human being. Only a few of his qualities: intelligent, kind, charming, witty, friendly, helpful and caring. We actually enjoyed going out to look at homes with him and his lovely family, and that relationship has carried over into one that goes beyond real estate.

On that side of the fence, we both feel that Richard is one of the most professional and insightful people with whom we have dealt with in our long career of home buying. We can't recommend Richard highly enough!

Richard Elkowitz is very friendly, easy to work with, went above and beyond what the average agent does. Prompt response to every question I had. Sold our home very fast. He paid really good attention to our needs. Him and his staff kept in touch with us throughout the sale and even after the sale to help us workout issues with the sellers. We felt that the entire staff was looking out for us, helping us find a house that fit our criteria. I would highly recommend Richard. We are very pleased with the service and outcome.

Richard Elkowitz was recommended to me by friends who had used him to sell their house. Before they engaged Richard, their house had been on the market for over six months; Richard took over and sold it within a few weeks. I had the same experience; when Richard took the listing on my townhouse in February 2007, I had an offer I was happy with within a few weeks!

I then asked Richard to help me find a new home on the other side of town. He took the time to listen to my concerns, both in the selling and the buying process. He is attentive, extremely knowledgeable, very easygoing to work with, there is never any pressure. You feel like you have his undivided attention, and he and his staff are always very prompt in addressing any questions - and very patient in hand-holding during a process that can be daunting. You won't go wrong with Richard as your realtor, either in buying or selling.

I've known Richard Elkowitz for quite a long time as his family and mine used to live in the same subdivision. He, his wife Peggy, and their two children were indeed our best neighbors until they decided to move to a larger house in another part of the city. However, we continued to think of them every time we drove along Hwy 6 and saw his friendly smile on the billboard advertising his real estate office on Memorial Drive.

When we were ready to move, Richard and his team proved to be so efficient and so helpful in selling the old house, as well as, buying our new house in the Sugar Land area.

Again, when I decided to relocate my photo studio to a different location in November 2007, Richard again proved himself to be the best a realtor can be. All transactions took place so quickly and so smoothly that I was able to move into my new studio in just a very short period of time.

Besides being the best real estate agents in the Houston area, Richard and Peggy are indeed two of the best friends we've ever met in our life. And yes, a friend in need is a friend indeed. Isn't that what we all look for?

Thank you so much for all your help and the very best wishes for everything that you do!

We have the highest regard for Richard. He took our home that had been on the market for six months and sold it in one month. Naturally, when we were ready to sell another property, he was the man we called. He knows how to market properties.

 We were kept informed, on all issues, every step of the way. He was always ready to assist. Calls were promptly returned. Questions were encouraged and thoroughly explained, as many times as needed, to our satisfaction. He gives good advice. He is honest. He and his staff are professional. He never let us down. We were treated with the utmost respect.

Actually, he is just a darn nice guy. We recommended him to friends and they were pleased to experience the same results.

"The Sales"


Having made the difficult decision to sell my home, I now had to find a realtor whom I thought could do the job for me in the least amount of time and without much inconvenience. I decided to call the person whose sign I kept seeing year after year on homes throughout my community, Richard Elkowitz, the mand with the bow-tie.

Having never sold a house by myself before, I was at a loss as what to do and how to do it. Richard and I met and he explained everything to me in a way I understood. During the entire process, from the moment I signed the contract to sell my house through the closing, Richard and his team were kind, understanding and always professional.

I would recommend Richard Elkowitz and his team to anyone wishing to sell their home the professional way. I was thoroughly impressed!



Mike and I would like to convey to you our deepest thanks for handling the transaction of the sale of our home and the purchase of our new home.

As you know, it is very stressful to buy and sell homes and you made it so much easier on us by handling the details especially when it came to the inspections and repairs.

In today's business world it is a rarity to find someone who is the consummate professional but you treated us a though we were your only client when we know that our transaction came at a very busy time for you.

We thank you for the splendid representation you gave us. Please express to your staff our thanks as well. They did a fine job keeping up with all the details too.

When you pass though our neighborhood, please don't be a stranger and stop in and see us.

When we met Richard we were at a point where we needed help. We had a different realtor and lots of stress.

We had seen Richard's fliers in our neighborhood so we called him for some advice and it turned out to be the best choice we ever made.

He made the selling of our house so easy and smooth. When we started looking for a new home Richard was thoughtful and would stop for coffee and "his special cinnamon toast crunch bagels" in between seeing homes to help us have energy to keep looking.

He really treated us like a friend and we are really thankful to have worked with him.
