Congratulations Darlene Slough

GRI

Darlene Slough, who has over 40 years combined experience in business, sales, mortgage lending, residential building and real estate, was awarded the certification of GRI.

Here’s what one of Darlene’s client had to say about her:

“Darlene is an excellent realtor. She goes the extra mile to make sure you are comfortable with every aspect of the sale. If there is anything at all she can do to make it easier for you to understand the finer points of real estate transactions, she is more than willing to explain them. She is extremely personable. She actually went to the courthouse to find all the prior deed restrictions which often times are not included initially with the seller’s information. She assisted me with reinstating an agricultural exemption on the property which saved money. I highly recommend her services.”

The GRI designation is a powerful tool to attract and build new business. This certification increases skill levels across the entire landscape of real estate with in-depth training in legal and regulatory issues, technology, professional standards, and the sales process. A minimum of 60 hours of coursework is required, and subjects covered generally include:

  • Market Knowledge: Neighborhoods and property amenities, considerations for housing types, developing CMAs and impact of MLS, financing option, and home-buying programs, inspections and appraisals/valuations
  • Business Skills: Prospecting, buyer and seller services, creating your niche market, negotiations, creating and implementing your brand
  • Systems and Tools: Record retention, form platforms, and applications, website portals, marketing tools, hardware and software to streamline your business
  • Avoiding Setbacks, Fines, and Lawsuits: Professional standards, contract to close, risk management, agency relationships, and advertising

Welcome Steven Hutson, REALTOR®

Born into a military family in Killeen Texas, Steven Hutson had the privilege of moving and experiencing all different types of cultures and people from all over the world. After his father retired, the family settled in a small East Texas town called Longview. Here he finished out his high school education and later was accepted into the private engineering university of LeTourneau University.

After completing his Bachelors of Science in Mechanical Engineering, he began his career in the Dallas market. Steven worked in the engineering field for over 14 years on projects ranging from golf course pumping stations (TPC Golf Course being one) to designing and building state of the art electric over hydraulic components for a multi-million dollar drilling rig.

Steven then went on to achieve his Masters in Business and stepped out as his own business owner. He bought into the Bush’s Chicken restaurant chain here in the San Antonio market. That business expanded to 8 stores in San Antonio and one location in Dallas. After 7 years in the business, February of 2017, Steven and his family decided to change course and sell the chicken business, which led him to real estate. “This was always an aspect of building stores that I loved to be a part of and wanted to somehow continue it,” says Steven.

Steven goes on to tell us, ” I obtained my license this year and after looking into several brokers I decided to interview with Coldwell Banker and have loved every minute since! The winning factors are the integrity, honesty, and Christian values that others seemed to lack.”

Steven is married to his wife of nearly 20 years, Amanda. They have two kids, Aubrie and Connor that attend San Antonio Christian School and a Jack Russell Terrier named Raskel. Aubrie plans to follow in her mother’s footsteps in being a teacher and majoring in special education. She is a powerhouse on her school’s swim team this year and has a passion for reading. Connor loves basketball and plays on the school team and also plays on summer league teams during offseason.

Welcome, Steven we are truly proud to have you as part of our CBHarper family!
