“Paige Martin and her team are THE condo experts in Houston. Paige has literally written the book (The Definitive Houston Condo Buying Guide) about buying a condo in Houston. They know what buildings to avoid, what floor plans to be wary about, and they have relationships to help with off market inventory and sales. If you’re considering buying or selling a condo (new construction or one of the current buildings) I would highly recommend you talk to them. You won’t find any other Realtor or team who is as knowledgeable as they are about the pro’s and con’s of Houston’s highrise buildings. They are fabulous to work with, are very candid with their advice and will look out for your best interests. I highly recommend the Houston Properties Team.”

Buying in The Willowick can be tricky for several reasons. The building has over 100 units, each with different pro’s and con’s. For instance, certain views are superior to others – this affects the value of different units (both positively and negatively).

The Willowick is also an older building and while it has shown good condo appreciation rates the last 10 years, there are many comparable newer residential highrises within The Loop.
