“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 a condo in 1714 Ashland can be tricky. A number of the units have been publicly listed on the MLS for over 900 days. As a buyer, it’s important for you to understand the fundamental reasons behind this (there are multiple culprits). I’d recommend finding a Realtor who can candidly and clearly explain this to look out for your best interests and help you avoid pitfalls.
