Negotiate with confidence

Making big decisions and playing your cards right is difficult when you’re unsure. You need education, market information, and insight about the Seller’s situation if you want to have a negotiating advantage. That’s where our decades of experience helping thousands of clients puts you in the driver’s seat.

Save time and search smart

The home search process can be a huge time sink! Stop wasting your Saturdays hoping to fall in love with the 5th open house you see, only to find it’s not the neighborhood environment that you family needs. Our process starts with a sit-down conversation to identify your true needs and wants–because just browsing homes that catch your eye is inefficient and it can lead to mistakes and missed opportunities. Your home buying research should start with a conversation, and you will be surprised how much you learn about what you really want when you answer our questions. We help you draw a road map to the ideal home…and then we lead you to it with minimal time wasted.

Expert professional guidance

Why would you make your biggest investment without expert guidance and advice? If you hired an attorney, the best and most experience option would also be the most expensive. In the home buying game, the seller pays for your representation. Obviously you want the best if it doesn’t cost you anything extra. We’ve helped thousands of families make smart, successful home purchases over the last decade. We can help you, too.

We listen…be heard

One of the most common complaints about buyer’s agents is that they don’t listen. Look, the most important part of your Realtor’s job is helping you to get what you want. How can we do that if we’re not listening when you tell us? We ask many, many questions so that we can get to know you, your family, and what you really want and need from your next home. That knowledge is crucial to our success as your agent, and we take it very seriously. In return, you’ll have constant communication from us along the way.

No surprises means less stress

Surprises are far too common in home buying, but most of them can be completely avoided. How? Experience. 95% of the licensed Realtors in the Houston area have very limited experience–the average Houston Realtor closes 2.5 transactions per year. Making your biggest investment with an inexperienced Realtor should frighten you, and it most certainly leads to surprises and unnecessary stress. Avoid the surprises and avoid the stress.

Build or buy new

Your representation makes a huge impact when you build or buy new. Some home buyers think that working directly with the home builder is acceptable…and yes, it’s possible to complete a new home purchase without a Realtor. But keep in mind: the new home salesperson represents the builder, not you. Our team has intimate knowledge of the home builder community, having worked with or for most of the major builders in our area. From inventory home negotiation to structural options and selections decisions, having Icon on your side is absolutely priceless in a new home purchase.

Johnny is quite an amazing resource when it comes to home buying. I would never have been able to get through this endeavor without his expert, timely, and wonderful advice and knowledge. He is a star representative of the real estate profession in a day where you have to be concerned about your representation. I would recommend Johnny to any and all that need a Realtor!

Keri & Casey

Johnny is my expert in the field. If you were having brain surgery, you find the best surgeon. That is what I’ve done here when needing a Realtor.

Casey

Johnny made our home buying experience superb! We were first time home buyers, and he easily answered our questions and addressed questions that arose throughout the process. I highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy a home in the Houston area.

Kristi & Posi

I didn’t have a realtor, I had a broker. His name is Johnny Schiro. He did an outstanding job and went above and beyond the call of duty. I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy a house.

Tahne

Johnny is top notch. He always made us feel like he was on our side and allowed us to be a part of the process. I will always recommend Johnny to any I know are looking to sale or purchase. Very patient with our constant questions and always made himself available on our schedule. Kudos !!!!

Lloyd & Roxann

Johnny and his team sold our home in 2 days so we were pressed to find the right home in a short time frame. We found the house of our dreams and our team went to bat for us. They did not care about the commission percentage but cared about our bottom dollar. My wife and I are extremely grateful for all the work Icon did in the sale and purchase of our new home. Best in the business.

Elias & Lyda

Icon was tremendous in assisting us with our purchase. They answered all of our questions promptly and were very professional the entire time. We would recommend very highly.

Pablo

Thanks so much! We had a great experience and absolutely love the new home we found. We appreciate it!

The best in the business. If you need anything done with Real Estate, you don’t need to look any further.

Casey & Carrie

Johnny Schiro was the best Realtor we have ever used. We would definently recommend him to others. He was not only professional, but knowledgeable. We truly enjoyed our time with Johnny.

Phillip & Keri

Johnny Schiro is an outstanding broker/realtor. He exceeded all expectations, always attending to details above and beyond his call of duty. He always kept in touch, showed many homes, and was very easy to work with. He is very knowledgeable in all areas related to real estate, and made the transaction of my buying a home extremely smooth and pleasant. I would totally trust Johnny with all my real estate needs, and recommend him overwhelmingly to anyone needing an excellent realtor.

Judy

Johnny is an outstanding realtor. I have been involved in many real estate transactions in the last 14 years, and by far he is the most knowledgeable realtor I have worked with. He has a broad knowledge base regarding market trends, values, schools, etc. It is very clear that he does his homework and works to make sure his client is making the best choice possible. I will continue to refer friends, family, and co workers to Johnny with confidence.
