“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 HoustonProperties.com team.”
  • ACCESS TO JOB CENTERS: Situated near major thoroughfares, The Houstonian’s location provides residents direct access to Houston’s key business districts. Downtown and Energy Corridor are 8 miles and 13 miles away via I-10, respectively. Downtown is home to the headquarters of several prominent companies with over 150,000 employees. Housing over 26 million sq. ft. of office space, the Energy Corridor has an employment capacity of over 105,000.

Buying in The Houstonian 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 Houstonian is also more than 30 years old and while it has shown good condo appreciation rates the last 10 years, there are many comparable newer residential highrises within The Loop.
