“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.”
  • PLENTY OF OUTDOORS ACTIVITIES NEARBY: Villa d’Este’s location along Uptown Park Boulevard provides residents relaxing and lush views of the wooded Tanglewood and the Buffalo Bayou. Villa d’Este condos are also few minutes from outdoor activity areas and green spaces in Memorial Park. Memorial Park features a golf course, running trail, and facilities for sports like tennis, swimming and volleyball. The park also hosts the annual Spring Bayou City Art Festival.

Buying in Villa d’Este can be tricky for several reasons. Certain units overlook disadvantaged locations and have more freeway noise than others – impacting values. Also, since the building was constructed in 1999, some units are starting to go through recent upgrades and renovations. In addition, sales trends after September 2017 have differed materially from the prior five and ten year trends.
