Houston was the world’s biggest small town when John Marr moved here in 1990. Nearly three decades later, as it emerges onto the world stage with a diverse and international profile, the nation’s fourth largest city is still a place where everybody can know everyone else. The opportunity for residents to find a tightly-knit community in the middle of the big city is one of the many reasons why John can’t imagine living anywhere else. When he’s helping his clients find the home that fits their lifestyle, he encourages them to consider their community and meet the neighbors who will become their newest friends.
Since starting his career as a REALTOR® in 1998, John has seen the tastes and trends of Houston’s luxury real estate market evolve from expansive single-family homes to trendy four-story townhomes and into today’s world of high-rise condominiums. The revitalization of neighborhoods like the Heights and Downtown have created dynamic new centers of high-end culture that fit any lifestyle, and John is more energized than ever to get his clients in on the ground floor of Houston’s continued evolution.
John uses his intimate understanding of the city’s condominium market to find his clients the most exciting new Inner Loop residences. Whether they’re looking for a simplified luxury living experience with lock-and-leave versatility or a pied-a-terre in a prime location, he encourages his clients to be “pioneers” when a hot new condominium project is announced. Aside from having their pick of views and floorplans, many of John’s clients have seen their new homes sharply increase in appreciation from purchase to move-in simply because they were one of the first to buy. His current project, The Marlowe, fulfills all of the best qualities of the Houston condo lifestyle and promises to be just the beginning of Downtown’s condominium renaissance. Through all of this, John puts the interests of his clients above everything else and never hesitates to let them know where the opportunity for their perfect home lies.
When he isn’t immersed in Houston’s new condominium developments, John enjoys playing the role of uncle to his nieces, nephews, and cousins. He also donates extensively to his favorite charity, Dec My Room, which employs volunteers to decorate the hospital rooms of children to create a healing space and ease their extended stay.
