About Deveau Realty Team
Husband and wife team Jihye and John Deveau — The Deveau Realty Team at Compass — deliver an exceptional real estate experience rooted in their abundant hands-on expertise and their unwavering client-first mentality. With a deep understanding of both the business and personal aspects of the buying and selling process, Jihye and John deliver savvy negotiation skills and industry know-how along with responsive, empathetic client service.

As a team, Jihye and John wield their perfectly complementary skill sets and interests in service of their clients' goals. Jihye grew up in South Korea and immigrated to the U.S. when she was 13, and John is a native Houstonian. Although they had similar interests throughout their younger years — in academics, sports and their respective family businesses — the two didn't meet until joining Big Four accounting firm KPMG after college. Jihye and John later joined forces in the investment sector remodeling and renting properties and as the owners of Sara's Inn, Houston's longest-running and #1 rated boutique Inn.

As licensed agents and collaborative partners in both life and business, the couple relies on their ability to address client needs seamlessly. Jihye keeps her finger on the pulse of the market, which makes her highly adept at pricing strategies, and she's also a skilled people person who easily connects with clients and stakeholders. Thanks to his finance and construction background, John is proficient at reviewing inspection reports, surveys and title documents to make sure deals come together effectively. Both Jihye and John are trusted advisors and advocates, and they never shy away from delivering hard truths when necessary.

Whether they're helping first-time homebuyers or empty-nesters, The Deveau Realty Team demonstrates a stellar work ethic, attentive service and thorough communication that makes every client feel like their only client. That approach has been part of their DNA from the start. As Jihye explained in a recent VoyageHouston feature, "What helped us gain momentum is how well we served those first clients we had. They didn't just become past clients we never heard from again. They became our advocates, letting others know that we were a team that went above and beyond what you typically expect from a realtor. And we've kept to that standard with every client we've worked with."

Jihye is a Luxury Home Real Estate Specialist, Certified Negotiation Expert and Accredited Buyer's Representative who was the top-producing agent at a prior brokerage in 2018. John has an MBA and CPA license with more than a decade of property management experience to his credit. Together, the powerhouse team has earned a significant repeat and referral clientele and a long list of five-star reviews.
