About Us

We are a young married couple with three spoiled Yorkies. We both met while working at a Big 4 accounting firm out of college and have had careers in the energy industry.  John was the best man in a wedding at Sara’s Inn in 2007 and really liked the property. When it came on the market he decided he wanted to buy it and Jihye decided she wanted to run it. So Jihye left her job and became the new face for Sara’s Inn.

Both of us are big travelers and have been all over the world, having traveled to over 30 countries on five continents. In fact, when we were dating we realized we actually had both been backpacking in Europe during the same summer while in college. One of the best things about running a business like this is meeting people from all over the world. If you are from outside the USA we would be delighted to have you stay at our Inn. Since we have been in cities many times wanting to explore but not knowing what to see or how to get there we understand your needs and can offer advice on what to see or do while you are visiting Houston. John is a native Houstonian and Jihye has been in Houston for the last decade, so we can provide insight on what are the top things to do, and places to eat, in the city.

We are both licensed real estate agents and have experience in investing in single-family homes and townhomes to foreclosures and small commercial properties.  We know the Heights and greater Houston market very well.  If you are coming to Houston to scope out properties for a future relocation and need a 5-start agent team to work with that can help you make a wise investment, Deveau Realty is the team to work with.  You can check out more info at houstonheightsproperties.com.
