Joe Rothchild


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!

Daniel Salce
— Realtor®

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!
