About Ron Tarvin, Broker/Owner

Ron Tarvin is a Broker/Owner of Texas Choice Realty and has been a licensed real estate agent for over 10 years. Ron's experience goes beyond that of a real estate agent as an active investor out of state for several years before moving to the Houston area and becoming a licensed real estate agent and ultimately Broker. Ron lives in the Katy TX area with his wife of 129 years and two daughters (19 and off at college, and 8). While not having a ton of time for hobbys with two kids going every which direction, Ron does love the ocean, scuba, computers, games and tea parties with his 8 year old daughter! Texas Choice Realty was formed on the basis that real estate is LOCAL and most of the large companies that are selling real estate are doing so on a national and international set of rules. Texas Choice Realty was conceived to be light, quick and effective at selling in the LOCAL real estate market while still embracing technology and reaching out to the many people relocating to our area every year. Texas Choice was also formed with the agent in mind. Ron saw how much money the traditional brokers were charging agents that work hard for their money and thought that because of the localized focus and lower overhead, Texas Choice would attract HIGH QUALITY, HIGH PERFORMING agents who wanted complete control of their business to best serve their customers. Larger chains often do not consider the client, who is the home buyer or home seller, and what THEIR needs are. The agent, with Texas Choice Realty, is free to best meet the needs of their clients because, as a broker, I don't pretend to know what EACH client wants! It's a great situation as agents are happier and do more business and home buyers and home sellers get the BEST service possible!
