Michael & Judy Bruner had been Real Estate Brokers since the 70’s. They owned their own real estate office and specialized in Northwest Houston, focusing much of their business in the City of Jersey Village where they lived. In 2001, their daughter Elisa resigned as English department chair in Alief ISD to help her parents in the family business as her father had taken ill. In 2009, after battling cancer, Michael passed away. In October 2015 Judy retired, although she continues to keep her license active to help Elisa during open houses, etc…
Presently the Bruner Team consists of two members: Elisa McNinch and her licensed assistant Kim Mullen. Elisa is privileged to be continuing her parents’real estate legacy they started over 40 years ago. She is a one-of-a-kind agent who prides herself in southern hospitality and has continually been awarded the prestigious “Five Star Professional Award” in real estate customer service consecutively for the past 6 years (from 2012-2018). Fewer than 3% of all Realtors in the Houston-area are honored with this award. She is consistently a multi-million dollar producer. And although she is savvy with technology, she still prefers to communicate with her clients voice-to-voice, and face-to-face when possible.
When asked what area of the city Elisa works, her response often is “If you were to divide the city in half, I work the left-hand side.” Elisa primarily works NW Houston, however, she is very familiar with most of West Houston including Spring, Tomball, Spring Branch, Cypress, Katy, and Richmond/Rosenberg. Kim on the other-hand, lives and grew up in the Memorial area, and is very familiar with those homes as well as properties inside the 610 Loop. Together they make a GREAT TEAM!
Elisa and Kim have devised a partnership that works well for the two of them. Elisa spends voice-to-voice and face-to-face time with their clients. She meets with sellers to help stage their homes, take the listings, meets the photographer, markets the listings online, shows properties to buyers, attends inspections, hosts open houses, etc… Elisa is the “face” of The Bruner Team. Kim primarily works “behind the scene”, managing emails, preparing listing documents and offers, making sure transactions stay on-track, and all parties are meeting their deadlines. Each of them knows how and are licensed to do one another’s jobs, yet have discovered when they “divide and conquer” they are an efficient machine.
Since their partnership in 2015, their team has proven to work well as Elisa and Kim have closed 50+ transactions each year, increasing their multi-million dollar sales volume annually.
