Ribbon Partners with The Sears Group to Expand Cash Offers in Houston Market



Ribbon, a real estate solution designed for home buyers and real estate agents, today announced a new partnership with The Sears Group, a Texas real estate firm under JP and Associates Realtors of Houston, Texas. Together, Ribbon and The Sears Group will support potential Houston home buyers’ ability to confidently make a cash offer on their dream home. 

“We officially expanded into the Texas market in October, and we’re already making strides in forming meaningful relationships with key members of the Texas real estate market including The Sears Group,” said Shaival Shah, CEO of Ribbon. “Our mission of making home ownership achievable in parallel with The Sears Group’s network of connections and strong portfolio makes this a powerful partnership for everyone in the real estate ecosystem including home buyers, agents, sellers and lenders.”

Ribbon’s recent entrance into Texas provides its Cash Offers feature to agents, giving them the ability to complete pre-approvals and home valuations within 24 hours. Through the new partnership with The Sears Group, Ribbon will reach even more agents looking to find their client’s dream home in a fair, fast and transparent manner.

“The Houston real estate market is booming. We’ve hit records this year in terms of pricing and number of homes sold,” said Chris Sears, owner of The Sears Group. “Partnering with Ribbon opens new doors for potential home buyers and breaks down any barriers they may face in the competitive market. We look forward to the positive impact and opportunities we’ll achieve with Ribbon as our partner.”
