Buying in Montebello can be tricky for several reasons. First, prices have fluctuated a bit with the recent launch of many new construction luxury condos. In addition, certain units overlook disadvantaged locations and have more freeway noise than others. Also, since the building was constructed in 2003, some units are starting to go through recent upgrades and renovations. All of these factors must be considered when evaluating a unit’s fair value price.

“We started working with Brittney Coyle in January 2022 on a visit to Houston with vague plans to move to Texas within the year. She listened carefully as we described our dream home and put together a synopsis of the various neighborhoods in Houston that would meet our needs. Over the months, she kept us informed of trends and availability so when we arrived in September to start our search we already had a game plan. Over the next 4 months we narrowed our search down to one neighborhood, visiting dozens of homes in the process. Brittney's insights and analyses were invaluable as we sorted through our options and her patience and poise were considerable!. Once we found our home, Brittney expertly guided us through inspections, negotiations and closing, giving us confidence in the soundness of our decision. Throughout the process of searching for and buying our home we were very grateful for Brittney's professionalism, graciousness and sense of humor. She has our full endorsement and we can't recommend her enough! Nancy and John Ferguson” - Nancy Ferguson (Google Review)
