Our Business Philosophy

The Mission of Martha Turner Sotheby’s International Realty is to Provide Real Estate Excellence to Our Clients, Customers, Agents and all Other Real Estate Professionals

The Martha Turner Sotheby’s International Realty Advantage Our mission of MTSIR is to provide real estate excellence to our clients, customers, agents and all other real estate professionals. MTSIR stands for a quality of service, not a price point. Sellers in all price categories turn to us for our local expertise, precise evaluations and far reaching marketing opportunities. We provide million dollar marketing and service at all price points. MTSIR is a Houston based residential real estate company whose local, national and global marketing strength, an all-important factor in attracting qualified Buyers, cannot be matched. The two legendary brands of Martha Turner and Sotheby’s are synonymous with quality and expertise. MTSIR is a company of top producing agents and outstanding staff who embody the highest level of professionalism. The objective is to ensure our clients and properties receive the attention and support they deserve throughout the real estate transaction. We are committed to and known for excellence, innovation, creative leadership and unparalleled standards of honesty and integrity in conducting business. The expertise and skill, combined with the one-of-a-kind resources, are powerful advantages that set our company apart.

While real estate by nature is local, today the market for property is national and global. This is where we offer tremendous advantages. Our connections to the most respected and successful real estate experts all over the world provide a level of global reach that is unparalleled in the industry. Premier partnerships with the world’s top media, in print and online, allows us to align our listings with relevant media partners on prominent, highly visible platforms. In an increasingly online and international marketplace, a recognized name is a powerful advantage.

MTSIR has a proven track record as the market leader in the Greater City of Houston. Being successful at our company requires knowledge, skill and a commitment to providing the best possible service to all with and for whom we work. Our team offers complete accountability throughout the real estate transaction. We are proud to be known as The Company of Top Producers. And finally, Martha Turner has always insisted on the importance of a positive attitude and enthusiasm in the agents that join the company. Knowing this to be a vital part of success and great client service, we remember this simple truth: If we are not fired with enthusiasm, we can be fired…with enthusiasm!
