MEET OUR GROUP
Rothchild Properties, LTD strives to be the choice for your Real Estate needs. Providing superior customer service and showing why we are The Hardest Working Group In Houston.
I have been in the real estate industry for 40 years. My change from RE/MAX to Keller Williams Signature Realty occurred in April 2010 and it wasn’t a decision that I made lightly. Since the change, the number of agents in our Market Center has nearly quadrupled! I am honored to be the Majority investor! With regard to Rothchild Properties, LTD, I couldn’t be happier with what we have accomplished together. My team has been number 1 in the world 3 years in a row, number 1 for at least 10 years through the Houston Business Journal and recognized as the number 1 Keller Williams team. Of course, we couldn’t accomplish this every year without Houston’s great sellers and buyers and builders! The market is finally showing signs of growth, even as we roll through this pandemic! The changes in the industry have been both necessary and exciting and they have been for the better for all of us. I still believe that Houston is one of the best places to live and work… especially when it comes to buying and selling homes. You can still get a great sized home for a very competitive price. But my life isn’t just work, work, work… everyone needs to relax and I have found my release through participating in charitable events around the Houston area. For many years, I have taken part in the MS 150 from Houston to Austin bicycle ride benefiting Multiple Sclerosis (17 years) and I also participate in the Run for the Cure Houston marathon benefitting Autism (10 years). I have found both of these events to be very challenging but rewarding. I have made great friends during these events…friends that I hope to have for a lifetime. Also, 2012 brought another joy – I became a Grandfather for the first time and now have three grandchildren! Also, three beautiful and handsome children, now adults! So proud! And, last but foremost, for the last 6 years a beautiful woman who is my perfect ying for my yang!

Dr. Michele Bright
I’m a native Texan through and through, born and raised in Houston. I began my real estate career in 1974 with Rothchild Realty as a means to put myself through dental college and remained a licensed Realtor until 1994. But even as I practiced dentistry, my love of ranching, pastureland, and beautiful outdoor settings never waned. After retiring from dentistry and segueing back to my first love — real estate — I’ve come full circle with the Rothchild Team at Keller Williams. As a pilot and equestrian, I’ve bought and sold personal properties throughout the years, always keeping my finger on the pulse of this unique market. My experiences in farm and ranch living and my long career in real estate have given me a unique perspective in helping clients locate their dream properties. I’m well-positioned to guide you through a wonderland of possibilities.

Hello... My name is Daniel Salce, most people pronounce it "Salsa". I am a KATY, TEXAS Native! I have spent my entire life here and remember when Katy was rice fields and dirt bike trails to keep me busy as far as the eyes could see. That being said there really isn't one area of Katy and surrounding Houston area that I am unfamiliar with. I love helping people find the home that best suits their needs and answering questions only a "native"can answer when it comes to getting to know the area. All that being said, the Houston Metroplex has been my life with stints in California for fun. I have sold and listed homes as far as Galveston to Madisonville and the East side to Cat Spring, TX. I take great pride in helping families find what they want and need without being rushed. I will NEVER try to sell you. I believe every homebuyer KNOWS their home when they walk in. I want you to love your home and not regret it. Lastly, I work on and with one of the most amazing groups in our area at Keller Williams Signature. Our group, "Rothchild Properties, LTD", has been named #1 for 11 times. We treat every buyer and seller the same whether you are a $10,000 lot or a multi million dollar house. On average we sell and list around 400+ homes a year! That being said... my volume can be seen onRothchild Properties, LTD as a whole as it is not listed separately. Individually, I account for 42+ buyers and 20+ listings a year. Let me help you get to know the Houston Metroplex and find the home of your families dream!
Nací y crecí en el centro de Houston. Orgullosa hija de padres inmigrantes de Matamoros, Tam. Mi primer idioma era el español y aprendí inglés cuando empecé la escuela, por lo que hablo con fluidez ambos. Me gradué de la Universidad de Houston. Pasé 31 años en mi empleo anterior y trabajé a llegar ser vicepresidente hasta que se vendió la empresa. Manejé a todos los clientes latinos en todos los aspectos de la empresa. Ahora estoy muy emocionada y me siento muy bendecida de haber recibido esta nueva oportunidad con el grupo de Rothchild Properties. Espero poder ayudarle a alcanzar sus objetivos inmobiliarios, ya sea venta/compra/alquiler. En mi tiempo libre, disfruto del tiempo con mi familia, mis perros y me encanta salir a bailar.
I was born and raised in downtown Houston. Proud daughter of immigrant parents from Matamoros, Tam. My 1st language was Spanish, and I learned English when I started school; thus, I'm fluent in both. I graduated from the University of Houston-Downtown. I spent 31 years at my previous employment and worked my way to VP until the owner sold the company. I handled all Latin customers in all aspects of the company. I look forward to helping you accomplish your real estate goals, whether sale/purchase/lease. I enjoy time with my family and dogs in my spare time and love to go out dancing.
