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!

Brooke Fisher

— Builder Relations/Realtor

I am a native Houstonian with a B.S. degree in Computer Networking Systems. While watching my grandparents and parents businesses (new homebuilders) I developed a dream of wanting to be apart of new construction. I was finally able to obtain that when I joined Rothchild Properties, LTD, specializing in builder relations. Since then, I have become a member of the Agent Leadership Committee (ALC) and serve on the Culture Committee in our Keller Williams Signature office. Focusing in new home sales and helping my clients achieve their dream of home ownership is not just my passion, but my life.

Vanessa Taylor

— Builder Relations/Realtor

I am not a native Texan, but I got here as soon as I could!  I moved to Texas in 1992 as a small town girl with big dreams.  I began my journey in Houston, have lived in Austin, and currently call Cypress home.  I am also a certified fitness trainer by trade and believe in a healthy mind, body, spirit.  I like to bring positivity to all things and I enjoy finding the funny in almost everything.  I have a beautiful teenage daughter whom I am raising to work hard and to always “keep it real”.


I got my license in 2017 from Champions School of Real Estate.  Over the last three years I have worked as a mentor for young children where I encourage them to follow their dreams as they play to their strengths and let their heart guide them.  I instill in them the importance of hard work and their abilities to make their dreams, as well as the dreams of others, come true.  I plan to lead by example and do just that as a part of the Builder Relations group and representing Rothchild Properties, LTD.  I am striving to make my dreams, and the dreams of my group come true while serving the real estate community for sellers and buyers.

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 on
Rothchild 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!

Dontua Estes

— Commercial Property Manager

My name is Dontua Estes (pronounced Dante'). I began my career in the commercial property management industry when I accepted my position at Rothchild Properties, LTD. That was almost 10 months ago! Wow! How time flies when you are having fun! Even though I am fairly new to my role, I have spent over a decade in the multifamily industry providing real estate needs to those looking for a "place to call home". My passion to provide assistance to those who need it and my drive to uphold the best customer service has taken me far! I absolutely love what I do! Transitioning over to Commercial Property Management with 10 buildings (9 of those being retail strips) under our belt, has been interesting to say the least! I like to call us "firefighters" as my partner, Denise Hadnott, and I are always putting out little fires (i.e problem solving). I wouldn't have it any other way! I will continue my pursuit of growth as I learn more within my new role while bringing my expertise to the forefront to collaborate in our "road to success!" 

Rothchild Properties, LTD is an amazing company! If its Residential or Commercial property you are in demand of, we are a one-stop shop!

Carolyn Johnston

I was born and raised near downtown Houston and settled in West Houston in 1991. I am very knowledgeable about my city and though my market focus is on Cinco Ranch, Katy, the Energy Corridor and Northwest Houston, I am not afraid to conquer new areas! Prior to establishing myself as a Realtor, I spent 12 ½ years in the banking industry, working with both residential and commercial lending. My experience gave me extensive insight into the financial considerations in real estate transactions. A background in IT software training and customer service has also proved invaluable. A “people person” with an attention to detail, I pride myself on being a customer service driven Realtor. I obtained my Quality Service Certification Designation in 2006. I am caring, honest, ethical and, most important, available. I utilize my strong commitment to communication and excellent service as a foundation for solid relationships with her clients. I put my clients first and makes sure they are comfortable with every part of the transaction. My clients are family to me! I was awarded the "Rising Star" award in my first year of real estate and have since become a consistent Top Producer! I’ve been married for 27 years, and am the proud mother of a daughter, Marissa and a son, Cameron. I am an active Junior Achievement volunteer and KISD volunteer. When I’m not spending time with my family, I enjoy reading, scrap booking and visiting with friends.

I’m originally from New York, but have been living in Houston for numerous years. I want to live in a world filled with innovative businesses, constant cool, breezy, sunny weather and baseball fans with vast knowledge. As a director of marketing and social media with years of experience, along with being a photographer and chef, I am always viewing things in a creative mindset and trying to figure out what’s next.

When I’m not plugging away on social media or my MacBook, you can find me dancing with my 1.5-year old daughter, Meredith, watching the New York Yankees (win!), dining at Chic-Fil-A or answering “Mommy, Mommy!” for the millionth time.
