Every story has a home. Let's find yours. Welcome home.

There is a reason why moving is often listed as one of life's most stressful events. When you are buying or selling what will often be the biggest investment of your life it can feel completely overwhelming. Have pets? Transitioning from a major life event such as retirement, marriage or divorce?

My story.

As your Realtor I get it! My husband and I moved across the country nine years ago from Northern Virginia to Houston, Texas. Not only was my husband working in Texas while I tried to sell our home but I had two young boys and three pets. Plus we picked the worst time to sell during one of the biggest real estate downturns. By the time our house hit the market, we had eight other houses on our street for sale! But we pulled through with determination, patience and the help of a wonderful agent located here in Houston. Not only that…but we ended up in an amazing neighborhood in Spring, Texas.

Let me help.

My goal is to give you the very best service and make your transaction go as smoothly as possible. Whether you are buying or selling your home I will work hard to negotiate the best price. If you are new to the area, my goal is to find out where you will feel most comfortable. Whatever your real estate objectives are I want to help you achieve them.

Melissa Browning

Realtor®, The Renee Buckhoff Team

I am committed to service, professionalism, and I understand that the client relationship is more important than the transaction. I was raised in West Texas where I was taught faith, family and hard work are key in having a full and successful life. After college while working in Dallas I met my husband whose career relocated us to Cypress 12 years ago. Moving to Cypress gave me an insider’s perspective on relocating. Being a Mom, I know how important it is to find the right home and community to fit your family’s needs.  I look forward to helping you whether you’re buying or selling a home.

Joyce Godwin, CRS


Over 20 Years of Helping Buyers Buy and Sellers Sell in Cypress, Spring, Tomball and in NORTH, WEST and NORTHWEST HOUSTON. Specialties include: 1st Time Homebuyers * 1st-Time Sellers * Move-up Buyers & Sellers * Seniors * Relocation * The majority of my business is from repeat clients and/or referrals from those clients. I prefer to work one-on-one with each buyer and seller from beginning to end.  Whether you’re buying or selling, just give me a call at (281) 381-0846 or visit and let’s get started with a personal consultation so I can learn as much as possible about your real estate goals and how I can best help you reach those goals.  You’ll receive personalized, yet professional service.

I love to work with relocating buyers, showing them what our area has to offer and helping them find the area that is just right for them. Answering as many questions as first-time buyers and first-time sellers can ask is quite rewarding; and since things are constantly changing in the real estate world, move-up buyers and sellers and seniors often have lots of questions, too – I feel that each question is important and needs an answer and that it’s important that every buyer and seller feel that they are making informed decisions along the way.

I’ve lived in the Houston area since I was three years old, went to Reagan High School in the Heights, and attended the University of Houston. I have worked at a law firm, in the legal department of an oil company, at an advertising agency, a commercial real estate firm and for over 20 years now, I’ve been a Realtor working in Cypress, Spring, Tomball and in North, West and Northwest Houston (the majority of that time has been with RE/MAX). In 2010, I received the RE/MAX of Texas Hall of Fame award. I am a CRS, Certified Residential Specialist, “the highest credential awarded to residential sales agents.” Only about 3% of Realtors in the US have been awarded the CRS designation.

If your looking for an agent who will be honest, out for your best interest, understandable and hard worker...give me a call. I'm here to work for you!
