Jay Monroe Bio

“It’s not about selling one house; it’s about building relationships.” Jay Monroe’s business philosophy keeps his clients coming back year after year. For Jay, it’s not over after the closing. He’s his clients’ Realtor for life, having had as many as five transactions with some clients.

With sales exceeding $467 million since his career began in 1992, Jay is a consistent top producer and member of the highly coveted Martha Turner Sotheby's International Realty Circle of Excellence and the Circle of Excellence Hall of Fame. The Houston Business Journal named him one of Houston's Top 25 Agents in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2013, 2014, and 2015. In 2010 and 2011, The Wall Street Journal and REAL Trends included Jay among "The Thousand Top Real Estate Professionals" as one of the top 250 residential agents in the United States.

A long-time Houstonian, Jay graduated from the University of Texas with a bachelor’s degree in English and holds a master’s degree in architecture from the University of Houston. This architectural background allows him to provide his clients with a wider perspective as they consider their home purchases.

While Jay has an excellent understanding of new construction and appreciates Modern architecture, he has a passion for historic preservation. Having restored his personal River Oaks home and several other houses in the area, Jay has keen insight into what can be done to update older structures without damaging their period integrity and vintage charm.

In his free time, Jay enjoys fishing and boating in both Matagorda Bay and Lake Livingston; swimming with Master’s groups at the Houstonian and Rice University; and serving as head coach for the Cullen Dolphins, a Special Olympics swim team.
