Hometown: Houston, Texas, USA
Ces Guerra, Local Real Estate Agent & Expert in Houston, Texas, recently wrote an international best selling book, Referral Secrets, to teach agents how to grow their business through relationships and referrals in their community.
Best quote from his story: “My effort is designed to avoid distractions and not get trapped by negativity. Persistence and consistency can almost always erase these challenges. These are key factors to my business accomplishments. Ultimately, the goal is to have my clients realize their dreams too!”
Ces’ business philosophy: “Helping people find homes and helping local business owners build their clientele is what gets me up and running early every morning. My family values have shaped the way I do business in that I support locals when I can, and develop relationships with local businesses and influencers on a daily basis. Service to my community is my higher calling.”
“Ces is awesome! Very professional and walked me through every detail! I would highly recommend him to anyone! He always gave me options and information that I found very helpful. I will definitely use him again when I decide to look for a new place.” ~Bobby Ware
“Ces and his team are professional and walk you through everything from start to finish. Ces will be selling my old home and I trust his judgment. I have enjoyed working with Ces and his team. ~Nickie Landry.
“Ces the agent was the main reason that I chose the brokerage (and I am glad I did). I did not know the Gary Greene Inner Loop before that. Ces was amazingly professional, knowledgeable, approachable, polite, and friendly. And it was a great experience to work with him. He surely made the journey of purchasing the house smooth and pleasant. Great experience and I would recommend anyone to Ces Guerra and Gary Greene Inner Loop office.” ~Gilbert Mishly
More About Ces
Ces was born and raised in New Orleans, LA. He is the eldest son of Latin American immigrants. During his high school years, he was active in the YMCA of New Orleans, at that time the Y was the home of some of the finest athletes in various Olympic sports, … he was NOT one of them.
After High School, he had a failed attempt at university life in the Fall of 1976 … chemistry was the hurdle. During the Christmas break, he enlisted in the U.S. Army and began his service in March of 1977. During Boot Camp, he was recruited to and joined the 82nd Airborne Division and served his four years of active duty in the 307th medical battalion at Ft Bragg, NC.
Honorably discharged in 1981, he gave university life another shot and enrolled at LSU in Baton Rouge. Why chemistry was part of the Computer Science curriculum, he still doesn’t know, but once again it was the challenge that altered his course. He graduated in December of 1984 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Geography and began wandering the Earth!
His career took him from nonprofit work to corporate insurance claims, back to non-profit work, and then to consumer and pharmaceutical sales for about 20 years. During his corporate sales career, he enrolled in the Houston Baptist Executive MBA program, graduating in 1994. He published his first book, Pill Pushers in 2007 and the hope is that one day someone will see the content as a potential big-screen movie! His 2nd book, Gumbo for the Tiger Soul was published in 2014, and will NOT become a movie!
After departing the pharmaceutical industry, Ces continued his pursuit of success discovering a knack for residential real estate. Thankfully, chemistry is not involved in the real estate business!! Licensed in 2013 he has been a Top Producer for the last 7 consecutive years and recognized as the Top Team in the River Oaks office of Better Homes & Gardens – Gary Greene for the past 2 consecutive years!
He is married to Laura Hawkins of New Orleans. Their adventures together have taken them from the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro to the Base Camp of Mt Everest and from the Andes to the Alps! While they do enjoy sailing on the water, they also enjoy diving below the surface with over 150 SCUBA dives!
