Cindy Hamman is regarded by her peers as a “REALTORS®’ REALTOR®.” That’s because everything about her background and style underscores an unwavering commitment to help the real estate industry and those who work in it be the very best that they can be.
For evidence of this, one need only look so far as Cindy’s numerous professional recognitions, a few of which include her selection as the Women’s Council of REALTORS® (WCR) – Montgomery County Chapter Entrepreneur of the Year, receiving the Houston Association of REALTORS®’ (HAR) John E. Wolfe Community Service Award, and her election as the 2017 HAR Chair. Cindy is also on the National Association of REALTORS®’ Board of Directors, and is a Regional Vice President with the Texas Association of REALTORS®.
A native Houstonian and a Vice President of Sales Performance and Recruiting for Heritage Texas Properties, Cindy is a licensed Texas broker with more than 20 years in residential sales management and third-party relocation. For Heritage, in addition to her focus on recruitment and growth, Cindy divides her time between Heritage offices in The Woodlands and Vintage Park, overseeing residential sales activity within those market areas.
Cindy entered the world of real estate sales after years in the energy industry, and quickly discovered that her talents, wit and focus were ideally suited for the challenges of the realty business. But it was later, when presented with the opportunity to be a branch manager of a real estate office, that Cindy truly realized that she had found her calling.
“I want to know my agents when they walk in my door and I want to know their families,” says Cindy. “I particularly love helping to mold the trajectory of their careers and steer them in directions that help them and the clients that they serve.”
Cindy’s benevolent gift for enriching the lives of others extends well beyond her impressive real estate career and industry concerns, however. Her significant contributions to the greater Houston community include her board membership and service as president of Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation. She volunteers with the Montgomery County Women’s Shelter and as a camp counselor every year for Candlelighters’ Camp for All, and also lends support to the Montgomery County Food Bank and the American Cancer Society for Breast Cancer. In addition, Cindy wages a personal crusade every Christmas on the streets of downtown Houston by distributing blankets, food and Christmas cheer to the homeless.
Besides all the REALTORS® she has mentored, Cindy is proudest of her three children – Daniel, Dustin and Dayna – and having put them through college while maintaining her career. “Making sure that each of my kids has a solid foundation and the tools for success has probably been my greatest but most rewarding challenge. I’m proud to say I have three teachers in the family – two with finance degrees and three with their Masters.”
When she isn’t working, Cindy and her life partner, Lisa Greer, get away to their farm in Waller County. “The farm is a real stress-buster for us. We are learning to be farmers and having the time of our lives.”
