"She genuinely cares that you are making the best decision for you and your family"

Sold my house in Rice Military and bought a home in the Heights with Ashli, Michael and Happen Houston. This is a first class real estate team. From the beginning, I never felt Ashli was trying to force a transaction. She genuinely cares that you are making the best decision for you and your family, and she’s not shy about being critical of decisions that are not in your best interests—even if this means taking more time to get it right. And all Happen Houston resources were available to us. They know design, construction, remodeling, market trends and provide research as needed. We’re really happy with our transactions and excited about our new home.

"We couldn’t have done it without the team"

Mike and I just wanted to thank you all for your help in selling our first home. I don’t know if our experience is the norm (my gut tells me no), but the whole process was very easy and relatively stress free, which we attribute to your expertise, guidance and professionalism. We couldn’t have done it without the team and appreciate your time and energy into closing this deal quickly and smoothly. While bittersweet, we know our home is going to a great family. Thank you so much for everything again.

"I had a wonderful experience selling my home through Happen Houston"

"They held our hand every step of the way"

We used Happen Houston to sell our home in Rice Military. We got plenty of realtor recommendations from friends and performed research on various firms, paying specific attention to their capability, market knowledge, experience and professionalization. Happen Houston staff came into our initial meeting with deep understanding of the market, experience in our area and presented us with a plan to get our house sold quick. We both were impressed with Michael Silva and gave his firm, Happen Houston, the listing. During the listing, the Happen Houston team was always in communication regarding the market, our listing and insights obtained during the numerous open houses. We got our questions answered quickly. When we obtained an offer, they fully explained the contents and made suitable recommendations based upon their experience and market knowledge. They held our hand every step of the way – at no point did we ever question their expertise and judgment. In the end, they delivered what they expected at our initial meeting. I recommend Happen Houston to anyone in Houston that wants a highly professionalized, quality realtor.

"We never had to worry about a single thing"

We could not have been more pleased with our experience with Happen Houston (Michael and Ashli) on the sale of our home. They made the process incredibly smooth during a very uncertain time. We never had to worry about a single thing. We would 100% recommend them to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home.

"I don’t know how I would have completed my first home purchase without him."

Tyler Cooper is simply amazing! He was a wonderful agent throughout. I don’t know how I would have completed my first home purchase without him. Tyler was with me from the beginning to end. He provided me with different listings and helped me identify my current home. He was readily available anytime I had any questions or concerns. He was diligent in ensuring that I understood the entire loan and closing process. He accompanied me to all my appointments. His warmth and professionalism went a long way. He advocated for me and made sure I was getting the best deal. I am satisfied with my new home. I highly recommend for anyone to work with Tyler. You won’t be disappointed.

"This was my first time going through the buying and selling of a home, and I consider us lucky to have had you"

We wanted to say thank you for everything you have done for us these past few months. Between helping us get Althea to selling Thornton so quickly, I never expected everything to happen so smoothly. We obviously don’t see the nitty gritty side of the business like you do daily, so it was nice to have never felt like we were under the gun or at war. This was my first time going through the buying and selling of a home, and I consider us lucky to have had you on our sides throughout. Thank you again for all that you and your team have done for us. Until the next time!

"I was impressed with the analytics based approach"

When I initially met with Bryan, I was impressed with the analytics based approach your company endorses and utilizes. It had been my experience in past real estate transactions of becoming too emotionally involved with properties, which ultimately lead to me making unsound decisions and overpaying for homes. Bryan told me up front it was his responsibility not only find me a property that I profiled for him, but to discourage me from overpaying what the home was worth. This proved to be exactly how my house hunting unfolded. This approach, considerably more professional than what I had been used to in the past, ultimately lead to me finding and buying a home in the area I had been looking for and Bryan didn’t let go there. He coordinated and followed through with all aspects of inspections, repairs and ultimately closing. The entire experience left me feeling good about the decision to choose Bryan as my agent. I believe this type of performance needs to be recognized and I would highly recommend Bryan Vanas to anyone.

"attentive, kind, relatable and knowledgeable"

"truly a class act"

Nick was so knowledgeable and made the home buying process as easy as possible. He made sure to keep us up to date and aware of the market landscape during these uncertain times. He is truly a class act and I would highly recommend his services! Thank you so much Nick!

"They are much more than just a real estate agency"

We began working with Michael and his team 2 years before we actually listed our house. We knew that we needed something bigger, but we just were not sure how, what or where? Michael and Ashli took the time to sit down at our kitchen table and actually listen. As we described our needs they began to offer ideas and suggestions. We formulated a plan together (based on our needs and their expertise) to systematically investigate: Remolding, Buying a larger existing home or building a new home. They are much more than just a real estate agency, they bring their Expertise of the Houston housing market (all facets) and develop specific solutions to fit their customers needs! By the way - When we did finally list our house, they sold it in 7 days! That’s what we call “Making it Happen” Thank you for all your efforts and good luck with Happen Houston!

- Jack

"Note from another agent in the industry"

Katie, Here is the final walk through form. And a special thank you to both you and Ashli for doing an exceptional job on this transaction. Michael is very lucky to have you both and take care and the best to both of you.

"I was extremely impressed with the discipline of the analytics approach and knew I wasn’t dealing with someone just interested in making a sale."

Michael, I wanted to take the opportunity to share my house hunting experience-beginning through end, with one of your associates,Bryan Vanas. When I initially met withBryan, I was impressed with the analytics based approach your team endorses and utilizes. It had been my experience in past real estate transactions of becoming too emotionally involved with properties, which ultimately lead to me making unsound decisions and overpaying for homes. Bryan told me up front it was his responsibility not only find me a property that I profiled for him, but to discourage me from overpaying what the home was worth. This proved to be exactly how my house hunting unfolded.It took a while but we found two homes that I liked and was prepared to buy. In both cases, Bryan told me the properties only held value to a certain point before we got a "red light" on the transactions. Although disappointed in not getting the homes I was interested in, I was extremely impressed with the discipline of the analytics approach and knew I wasn't dealing with someone just interested in making a sale. This approach, considerably more professional than what I had been used to in the past, ultimately lead to me finding and buying a home in the area I had been looking for and considerably under the market. Bryan didn't let go there. He coordinated and followed through with all aspects of inspections, repairs and ultimately closing. The entire experience left me feeling good about the decision to chooseBryan as my agent. I believe this type of performance needs to be recognized and consequently my email to you. Congratulations to you and your company, I would highly recommend you and Bryan to anyone. Best regards,

"Easiest home buying experience I’ve ever had."

My wife and I met Michael, Ashli and Katie for the first time for a casual discussion at Cedar Creek. I went into the meeting extremely apprehensive. My wife had known Michael through a friend, but I was already set on a different realtor who had done quality work for me in the past. We were undecided about a new home, undecided about a location, and unsure about the price point. The meeting wasn’t a showy display of their knowledge of Houston but rather an information gathering and understanding meeting. We were in no rush, but knew we needed to find a new home over the course of a year and a half. After that meeting our interactions were just simple and casual with no level of pressure from Michael and his team. Still undecided on our realtor, we would shoot Michael and his team questions about neighborhoods, builders, price points and schools. All our questions were answered promptly within an hour or so. I have had realtors who would take half a day or longer to respond which sometimes could be a lost opportunity in an active market, so this was refreshing. Quickly our comfort level grew, so it was only natural that when a house came on the market, we called them about a visit. Ashli and Katie met us at the house and immediately provided input on workmanship of the home. It was impressive how they were able to spot details that would be telling of poor quality and a rush job behind the wall. Both my wife andI work full time jobs so seeing a house is never easy, it was that trust that Ashli and Katie built that allowed us to weed through poor quality over priced homes without having to visit each one. Finally, we stumbled upon a house that hit on all our requirements and in our price range. Michael got us the first viewing, Ashli was familiar with the builder and provided valuable input on the construction quality. After the walk through, Ashli was very straight about the opportunity we had for this house. We had a first movers’ advantage on a solid home in the area we want. We put in the first offer that evening which we used to our advantage continually through the negotiation process. I strongly feel this home could have gone into a bidding war and sold out of our price range, it was Michael who spoke with the opposing realtor and created a level playing field for us that convinced the seller to accept our offer. Next came the inspection negotiation, there was a problem with the AC unit that came up in the inspection. After a brief conversation with Michael, he understood where my wife and I stood and what we thought was a fair price for money back in closing. I have been through this process before and seen how out of hand a negotiation can get when money and emotions are involved. I was very glad to explain our view and Michael reassurance that he would deliver. I have no idea how heated the conversation got between Michael and the other realtor, but it was enough for the opposing side to give us an ultimatum. In the end we all came to a price we were happy about. It wasn’t over just yet, we now had two mortgages. We needed to move quick to get our house on the market before the buying/selling season began to slow. Before we could even celebrate our new home purchase, Michael was already making moves to get our old home on the market. Ashli came over to consult on staging the home. Once again, Ashli came stepping into our home like veteran interior designer and the prowess of Dame Anna Wintour. She was quick, methodical, and precise. In just a few minutes we had a page of notes on staging and not a dime spent. In just a few days we got the house in shape, professional photos taken and listed on HAR. The very first day on the market we got an offer, and from there Michael, Ashli and Katie managed the rest. It was a smooth process through inspection, negotiations and closing and before we knew it, we were back to one mortgage. Even when I was willing to cave, Michael told us to hold firm. He fought for every penny to stay in our hands. I can safely say that, in all previous transactions I have never walked away from a home purchase not feeling a bit cheated by the realtor. Working with Michael, Ashli and Katie, they worked hard for every penny and brought value far beyond being a realtor. Michael and his team were completely professional and understand that being a realtor is much more than just showing a house and facilitating a transaction. In the dawn of HAR anyone can find the house, but it takes a team of experts like Michael’s to run a smooth transaction and make sure the money stays in the hands of the client’s hands. Beyond the money Michael’s team minimized the mental exhaustion of purchasing a house. Thank you, for the easiest home buying experience I’ve ever had.

"I never expected everything to happen so smoothly"

We wanted to say thank you for everything you have done for us these past few months. Between helping us get Althea to selling Thornton so quickly, I never expected everything tohappen so smoothly.

This was my first Ume going through the buying and selling of a home, and I consider us lucky to have had you and your team on our sides throughout. Thank you again for all that you and your team have done for us. Until the next Time!
