Agent Spotlight: Darrell Wood RE/MAX Suburban
- Written by
How long have you been a Realtor? I have been a licensed realtor in the state of Texas since 1990, and practicing full-time since 1999. What made you become a Realtor? I grew up in a real estate family, and my passion has always been to do something where i can truly help people. My mother (Ann Wood) was an owner of a RE/MAX office for many years, and from there is where my interest developed. I graduated from SFA in 1988 and went to work in the oil business, but i was never content and wanted something more. I like being my own boss, and i am a self starter. Working hard to achieve the American dream is what drives me. I love my job! What is the most expensive home you’ve ever sold? The most expensive home I have ever sold was $475,000. The most expensive commercial property I have ever sold was for $3,200,000. We did represent the seller and the buyer in the commercial transaction. I do residential, commercial, ranch, beach, and farm sales. This peaks my interest, and ensures me that there will never be a dull day in the business. What do you think about the market at this time? The Atascocita/Kingwood/and Humble real estate market is outstanding compared to other areas of Texas, and the country as a whole. We are growing, and the market is getting stronger each day. With Beltway 8 and new Highway 90 both near completion, we are getting ready to explode with growth. This side of Houston is the last great frontier for development. We have homes in every price range, and it’s a great place to raise a family. What brought you to the Humble/Kingwood/Atascocita area? My wife (Kim Wood) and I have lived in Walden for several years, and I really wanted to work closer to home. I owned a RE/MAX office in Northshore for close to 7 years, and we decided to close it up in April 2009. This was my opportunity to be closer to the kids, and jump into a new market all at the same time. This community has so much to offer for families. The school system is excellent, the choice of restaurants is endless (with more coming). The potential for growth and development is what inspires me. Within the next five years many of us will not recognize Lake Houston Parkway and 1960. It’s exciting when you watch the area develop into it’s true potential. My children are my life, and they are the number one reason we live in this area. Leslie (Princess) is a senior this year at Atascocita and will soon be off to college. Lindsay is soon to be a sophomore, and from there I am sure she will become a model. Dakota is also going to be a sophomore, and looking to hit the rodeo circuit. Stryker is finishing up 7th grade, and is the only boy. He loves baseball and has focused his life around it.
