SHANNON HARRISON – LIVING ON THE LINKS
ENGEL & VÖLKERS – KATY
Golf Life Navigators Certified Real Estate Agent
“I am defined by my passions, as they drive my success, and form the foundation upon which I dedicate myself to my clients. That’s the whole idea behind ‘Living on the Links,’ which gives me the opportunity to combine my two greatest passions: real estate and golf. It allows me to do what I do best, which is to help people, connect them, share my expertise about Houston’s many golf course communities, and find the one that best fits each client’s lifestyle. Many consider me a matchmaker for golfers and the communities they love.”
My passion for real estate began at an early age. I was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana, surrounded by family members who were and still are involved in real estate. Having grown up around real estate, I developed a love and appreciation for design, and a natural fascination for the business. It is no surprise that real estate has been a source of continuity throughout my life.
It was while living in New York; however, that I decided to follow my passion for real estate. After college, I had moved to New York to pursue a career in fashion, where I spent the next six years working at Saks Fifth Avenue as Director of Visual Merchandizing. Once again, I found myself surrounded by Realtors, as my husband’s family worked in the industry. This reignited my love for real estate, and my inherent desire to help people. It is that aspect of the real estate business that I find the most rewarding.
In 2002 and 2003 respectively, I became a licensed Realtor in New York and then in Connecticut. While in Connecticut, I spent several years as an agent at the prestigious firm of William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty, where I was recognized as the Top Sales Agent for sales volume.
Then, in 2008 my husband’s career in the oil and gas industry brought us to Houston. And although I had been an avid golfer for most of my life, it was after moving to Houston that my love for the game really took on a life of its own.
I have spent the last 10 years heavily involved in the Houston golf community, working within the tournament, event, and marketing sector of the sport. In 2014, I founded the Houston Players Club, which has become the largest social golf group in Houston, with over 700 members. Its purpose is to provide a way for golfers who are new to the Houston area to discover and play on the many courses available, while meeting other people who share the same love for the game of golf.
It is my love for the game that makes me so passionate about helping my clients find the golf community and home that best suits their golf lifestyle. So, whether I am playing golf or selling homes in golf course communities, golf and real estate go hand-in-hand and are forever intertwined as my life’s passions.
When it comes to working with my clients, I am committed to always providing first-class real estate services, and an unparalleled high-touch experience. This is true whether I am assisting buyers or sellers, as well as golfers and non-golfers.
“Passion and dedication are more than just words to me; they are part of my credo. That’s what motivates and empowers me to be the best at what I do, and to work hard to help my clients achieve their goals. It’s true, I like to talk, but I know when to listen.”
