Finding the right location is juat as important as finding the right home, and no one knows the local area better than a local agent. Allow me to help you find the perfect neighborhood for you, your family, and your lifestyle.

A native of Mexico, where he majored in Bilingual Education and Marketing, Armando DeLeon IV moved to Houston from Monterrey in 1987. He quickly got to know his adopted hometown, particularly the close-in neighborhoods on either side of the West Loop 610 - the Galleria/Memorial area (where he lives) as well as the Tanglewood, Heights, Garden Oaks and Bellaire neighborhoods.

Before becoming a licensed Realtor, Armando worked in the automotive business for DeMontrond Motors, where, within a year, he'd become one of their Finance and Daily Managers, and also worked to increase sales.

"Learning to sell in the car business opens your eyes to the importance of presentation and marketing. The way things are presented to the customer greatly influence how they see them. Different marketing techniques bring different results, and often help open the customer up to possibilities they might not normally consider," he says. "I have found that these same principles apply to the selling or purchase of a home."

Following the best career advice he ever received: "Be yourself, and the rest will fall into place," Armando's transition into residential real estate was influenced by his own life experiences. "Real estate has always been an interesting area for me," he says. "The experience of relocating not only from another city, but also another country, had a big impact upon me and made me appreciate the value of finding the perfect home. That's a feeling I enjoy sharing with my clients."

Clients praise Armando for his calm nature, levelheadedness and problem-solving skills. He excels at developing creative new ways to sell and genuinely enjoys meeting new people. A man of integrity and a good negotiator, he keeps his clients' needs and interests at the forefront of his work. He believes that loyalty to his clients is essential.

Outside of work, Armando enjoys hunting, fishing and golfing. He is a member of the Houston Safari Club, Dallas Safari Club, Safari Club International, and National Rifle Association, organizations with which he became involved due to his passion for the outdoors. "Being able to attend their events, particularly the international ones, helps me meet people and learn about cultures from all over the world." Armando also enjoys flying and has held his private pilot's license for several years.

"Armando exceeded our goals in the sale of our home. He was able to get us the right offer and work with us throughout making sure my wife and were comfortable with everything going on at all times. He was able to come in and market out property and sell faster and at a better price than any of the other homes that were on the market in our neighborhood. He also helped us find the right home closer to our daughter so that we can spend more time with our grandchildren. It was just a wonderful experience. We are blessed to call him a friend and would love to work with him in the future."

"With a growing family we decided it was time for an upgrade, I got what I call "hot feet" for a new home. Armando was able to market our home and exceed our expectations of the market. Bringing us multiple offers at or above our asking price. Making our wedding anniversary truly special, that year. He fought for us every step of the way and made sure we were protected at all times. I can truly call him a friend after it was all said and done."

"I had a very specific idea in mind of what I wanted in my new home. Armando was able to show my wife and I several properties until we found the right one for us. I am used to having things done my way and on my time and Armando made 100% sure we were satisfied at every set and turn. We want to thank him for his hard work and confidentiality when it was needed."

"As a first time homebuyer, moving into and new city, my wife and I were very nervous about the whole process. However Armando made us feel right at home, easing every worry and doubt we had along the way. He was very knowledgeable about the area and helped make a seemingly difficult process seem easy and painless. I don’t think we could have found a better person to help us find our dream home. We will recommend him to all of our friends and family, as well as call him for all of our future real estate needs."
