Meet The Broker

Tirey "Ty" Counts

Native Houstonian and literally born for Real Estate!

Tirey “Ty” Counts was born into a real estate family. His mother entered the world of real estate in the mid-70’s. Barely old enough to push a lawn mower, he was helping his mother keep her listings attractive by
mowing lawns.

After about 15 years in the world of accounting, he decided to enter the “family business”. That was 21 years ago. And he never looked back.

Most brokers would be happy with one real estate company, but Ty started two of them. His first company was named “Apartment World” and has helped over 18,000 renters with their relocation needs since 1998. “Half the people in Houston rents a house or apartment, and we need to be able to help them as well.” In 2005 he opened Monarch Real Estate Group. “We create relationships with our clients that have spanned two decades.” So many clients that started as renters eventually have become first-time home owners.

Meet The Agent

Steven Tesney

As the saying goes, "I wasn't born in Houston, but I got here as soon as I could."

Steven has lived in Houston for more than 30 years. He purchased his first home in the Garden Oaks area over 20 years ago and has been enamored with that part of town ever since. Watching the Northside — Garden Oaks, Oak Forest, The Heights, and Independence Heights — develop over the years has been a thrill.

Steven is honored to serve on the Board of Directors for ChildBuilders, a 40+ year Houston charity. ChildBuilders provides programs and training to teachers, parents, and students to help keep kids safe. ChildBuilders’ programs teach kids to recognize abuse and victimization and to report unsafe behavior.

Steven’s favorite topics of conversation are classic films, international travel, and French wine. He loves to learn about and explore all three topics — ideally at the same time!
