Experienced, Licensed Real Estate Agents

David Houston

In 2006, David acquired a real estate license to purchase his first home in the Montrose area of Houston. Following this transaction, a friend asked him to help with a home purchase. This friend then referred five others and the roots of New Leaf were planted. However, it is David’s childhood connection to Houston’s many neighborhoods, as well as his passionate determination to thoughtfully populate these communities, that have consistently motivated him and his team at New Leaf Real Estate.

David began his career in the energy sector in 1993 with Texas Ohio Gas, remaining with the company for 14 years. He transitioned from the energy sector to real estate when his brother, Eric, and he launched Houston Brothers Mortgage in 2002. David’s background in energy trading and mortgage informs his in-depth, market-based analysis approach to New Leaf Real Estate’s model.

At New Leaf, his market expertise allows him to identify a client’s specific needs, and combine that with his strategic negotiation and deal-making capability, consistently delivering the best deal possible for his clients. From the initial contact to inspections to final contract, David is committed to providing his clients with unparalleled service. Because of his relationship-driven vision of the industry, he has fostered productive realtor relationships and formed lifelong friendships with many of his clients in Houston.

Since the launch of New Leaf, David has managed approximately $425 million dollars of real estate sales and has personally handled over 625 transactions. In 2017, he closed approximately $60 million, which garnered praise and recognition as one of the Houston Business Journal’s Top Agents by Sales Volume for the sixth consecutive year.

David lives in Montrose with his wife, Heather, and their two young children, Hart and Holden. Committed to giving back to the community, he and Heather support Poe Elementary, Roberts Elementary, Neartown Little League, Dress for Success and Eastside Farmers Market.
