Meet Our Team
Jamie and Allison Yancy
Eighteen years ago Jamie and Allison Yancy took their first steps towards their journey to create a real estate agency that changed the way properties were marketed on Lake Conroe. Both with strong backgrounds in sales, finance, and marketing, they created a powerful real estate duo that is now recognized as one of the top ten agencies in the Houston market. Allison has been featured in H Texas Magazine and the Houston Business Journal on numerous occasions and is highly respected by the top selling agents in the Houston area. They are two of the most recognizable names and faces in the Lake Conroe area and Allison has listed more residential property for sale and sold it faster, simply because of their innovative marketing ideas, cutting edge technology, and good old fashioned hard work. Jamie has represented more buyers than any other agency, and strives to maintain a strong web presence, helping families from across the globe have access to the real estate information they need, right at their fingertips.
In 2001 the Yancy’s knew their true dream was to build their own agency where they could personally create an online market that the area had never seen. They focused on developing a website that was not only user friendly to today’s consumer, but also packed with relative and helpful information about Lake Conroe. Today lakeconroerealty.com averages over 15,000 hits per day and is one of the most trusted sites for Lake Conroe surrounding real estate. Never afraid to try something different when it comes to marketing a client's property for sale, they are relentless in their pursuit for a buyer for each listing.
Ask any local resident and they will tell you Jamie's knowledge of the water and the Lake Conroe area is second to none. With their primary home and office on the lake, they introduce a whole new home buying experience to the waterfront buyer, with a full access of personal watercraft and pontoon boats at their fingertips. Looking at homes from the water gives you an entirely different view than the normal curb appeal on the street that most homeowners are used to seeing. Jamie and Allison have always loved the water and been around it since childhood. They currently live in Grand Harbor on the lake with their three children.
“This isn’t your run of the mill firm that buys and sells houses. We are a family of experienced professionals. We do this because we love it and we enjoy helping families.”
Lake Conroe Realty closed on over $109 million dollars in real estate transactions in 2014 and were once again recognized by the Houston Business Journal with two awards; one for ranking #8 in Teams by Sales Volume, and another award for ranking #7 for Teams by Transactions. Jamie and Allison have lived in Grand Harbor for nine years and enjoy being active in the Montgomery community.

Lee HarughtySince obtaining my real estate license, I have shared in the rewarding experience of helping my friends and clients attain home ownership all over the North Houston area. After recently making the transition to Lake Conroe Realty, I feel I am better equipped than ever to assist my clients in with either selling or buying their home. My business is based on treating people the way I would want to be treated and I take every deal I do personally. I strive to not just work with my clients but to become involved and grow long lasting relationships. Selling or buying a home is a stressful and nerve racking process, all the more need to work with someone who you feel comfortable with and understands your needs. I use my hard work ethic and superior knowledge of the market to make sure my clients have all the necessary information to make strong, confident decisions. Now, more than ever, is a knowledgeable and capable Realtor(r) needed to represent and protect both home buyers and sellers.
I earned my real estate license in January 2008 and immediately became a top producing agent, being named "Rookie of the Year" my first year by my previous firm. By my second year I was a multimillion dollar producer. I employ my strong work ethic and love of people and the business to help grow my network in the Lake Conroe area and all over Montgomery County.
I became a Lake Conroe resident after graduating from Texas A&M in the summer of 2007. I was born and raised just down Interstate 45 in Spring. I live with my wife Jennifer and new son Hayes.
Ray FaragherBackground: I'm a full time Realtor who serves the Lake Conroe, Conroe, Montgomery, and Woodlands areas of Montgomery County Texas... Helping people learn about our area so they can make informed and intelligent decisions when buying and selling property is my specialty. Before entering the field of real estate 7 years ago I worked in marketing and advertising for over 20 years; this has helped my business in more ways that I could have ever imagined through innovative marketing strategies that ultimately help my clients in obtaining their goals. I enjoy living here in Lake Conroe with my wife and two sons where we have numerous activities that keep us busy, as well as being involved with many community events around the area. I like the fact that I am able to work where I live as it keeps me up to date on what's going on around Montgomery and Lake Conroe, this also allows me to pass along important info to the people I work with. My oldest son recently graduated from the exemplary Montgomery School District with honors; he is currently employed at the April Sound Country Club where he hopes to be a chef someday. My wife stays busy volunteering, helping me run my real estate business, and watching over our youngest son and home.
Goals: My goals are simple; creating value for my clients. Most people depend on their Realtor to be an expert in their local market areas as well as an advocate to them in their real estate transactions; this is the reason for hiring or working with an agent to begin with! I specialize in selling property in and around the Lake Conroe, Conroe, Montgomery, Magnolia, and Woodlands areas of Montgomery County. By joining a prominent real estate boutique at Lake Conroe Realty I have been able to surround myself with some of the best professionals in the business, which combined with the above mentioned components enables me to do the real job at hand; creating value for my clients. The clients that I work with can take comfort in knowing that I have taken the time and effort over the years through all these aspects; they also know that I take great pride about offering first rate service to them as I know that they have many choices on whom to give their business. I am also grateful for the many referrals that I have received from past clients and would consider it an embarrassment if their transactions did not go smoothly; please see some of my testimonials on my website by clicking here.
Giving back to the community in which I live is also very important to me, therefore I donate a percentage of my commissions to local charities such as the Montgomery County Food Bank, Conroe Women's Center, St Vincent De Paul, and other worthwhile organizations.
