Kerri Truelove, Houston Realtor
Kerri loves 90‘s hip hop and has the dance skills to match. She is a fun-loving woman who has a smile that lights up a room. But don’t mistake her fun for a lack of focus, she gets it done.
Phrases other agents use to describe her: “I thought I knew everything there was to know about being gangsta until I met you.” – Alex.
Kerri is a native Houstonian who has been in real estate for over seven years. Her areas of expertise include the Galleria and Houston west neighborhoods. Kerri’s greatest accomplishment to date is being a loving wife and Mom to four amazing, brilliant, incredible kids. She also love Wii-Dance Offs and Lip-sync battles. Duh.
What my new neighbors are saying about me...

I can breathe a huge sigh of relief as I leave for vacation tomorrow before moving to Houston in less than two months. Why? Because I already have an apartment in my name with the exact move-in date and specifications I want... without having to make a trip from Colorado (where I live) to Texas.
I saw an ad for Bamboo Realty on Craigslist and followed up with an email. I heard back from one of their agents, Kerri Truelove, right away. She indicated there were no fees associated with her service -- all I had to do was list her as my referral source when I rented. I had some pretty specific requests and some unusual circumstances surrounding my move and my needs, but Kerri was able to handle that all in stride (and with a sense of humor!). She had options for me by the next day, and within a week I was approved for an apartment, paid my deposit, and have my new address! I think I will really like the property and the area, and most importantly, it is close to my new job!
I have never before used an apartment finding service and have instead relied on Craigslist, drive-bye, etc. So far this has been the smoothest transition EVER (and I have lived in 5 different states in my 20s/early 30s)... now, just for the packing and the cleaning of my old apartment!

I had the pleasure of working with Kerri Truelove who was a gracious, knowledgeable guide to the Houston apartment hunt. She listened to my requests and was attentive to seeing that my concerns were addressed. I appreciated her willingness to drive this out of towner around the city all the while dispensing fantastic restaurant recommendations. Kerri was such a pleasure to work with, almost intuiting what I wanted and then advocating for me with the various leasing agents. I would not hesitate to work with her again.

Usually not a reviewer for most things, but when it comes to something like buying a house, let me give you peace of mind. Use the only name synonymous with the best......Kerri Truelove!
I had been in and out of the apartment lifestyle and was tired of the "roommate" experience. I knew it was time for a place of my own. But no one ever tells you about the ugly truth that goes into buying a home. The constant searching, the paperwork, the filing, the waiting, more waiting, etc. I thought it was something I could do myself. But I was wrong! So I had to bring in someone who could help. When I first called Kerri and asked her if she would help me with this, I had no idea what I was getting into. She was like Siri on steroids! Before I could even ask the question, she was already answering and reassuring me that she had taken care of it. It was amazing. And if she hadn't already done it, she was knocking on my door with the paperwork that needed to be sent in, regardless of the time or her situation. It was gonna get done!
She had mapped out a few houses in the area in which I was searching. Some on the lower end and some on the higher end. But with each house, she was honest with me. She wasn't trying to hurry me along to get her cut and move to the next customer. I was her priority and she made sure of it. I finally settled on a house i wanted and Kerri worked diligently to get in touch with their realtor and handled the negotiations. She took the proper route and not cut any corners to make sure I got the house. Had I not personally experienced the hard times trying to do this my myself, I would have thought it was all unicorns and rainbows. Kerri was that good!! Very painless because she took care of everything for me. She even came to the closing as support. She still calls a year later to find out how things are going. I was a person and not a number with her. If you are looking for a house or apartment, you need to find Kerri Truelove first.
