Realty Team

Coton House uniquely combines real estate & leasing, investment opportunities, award winning interior design, full-service remodeling and new construction within a single hybrid organization. Native Houstonian Laurie E. Coton developed this innovative concept to present clients with a full array of services under one roof. Better informed decision making in a one-stop shop environment achieves successful results while working within her clients’ budgetary goals.

Laurie’s focus is to maintain a talented and diversified team of realtors that is small enough to deliver personalized services. Agents are selected for their experience and motivation to develop lasting relationships through excellent service via a collaborative team approach.

Having immediate access to the design and remodeling teams, agents are able to better advise their sellers on how to best position and make their property ready to market. Conversely, the teams are able to advise a buyer on whether a property has inherent issues or other deficiencies and share information on how to best move forward within a cost-efficient budget.

Investors interested in updating or flipping properties for resale rely on Coton House for accurate information to determine cost estimates for proposed renovations. Also, the investment team helps find properties and determine the best usage of the land for new construction.

The relationship continues once the transaction is finalized. The design team is available to consult on decisions such as paint selections, finishes, lighting, furniture placement or acquisition of furniture and art. If the homeowner is interested in updates, the Coton House remodeling team can assist. Having experience with pricing of area real estate, cost comparative analyses are developed for updating within a specific budget.

Regardless of the real estate continuum, Coton House has knowledgeable, friendly agents who are ready to achieve their clients’ goals within any financial horizon.
