Realtor Associate, Houston Market
Team Role: Listing and buyer specialist, Houston Area
A Realtor since 2011 and a 5star Realtor in 2015 and 2016, former airline pilot Darren Morris learned well in his 16 years at 30,000 feet to work hard, show up on time, and do what he will do. Level-headed, goal-oriented, and optimistic, Darren listens to clients’ and wants in order to help them accurately determine the value of a residential and investment property and make sound, informed decisions on just the right long-term investment.
A desire to work closer with people led to Darren to ground his aerial career. “I am a people person and thrive in being part of other lives” he says. Since then, he’s learned some key lessons in his second career, equally if not as literally high-flying: “Most Realtors don’t make it because they don’t follow specific plan” he says. “I have been fortunate enough to have been led in the right direction”.
Darren spends his spare time snowboarding, flying, attending real estate seminars and trainings, and working with the Star of Hope and the American Diabetes Association.
