“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.”

Buying a Briarglen condo is tricky. Due to several ongoing projects in the area, some of its units are going to trend differently due to unit updates, views, etc. The Inner Loop is also home to numerous residential condominiums, each with its own pro’s and con’s. A Briarglen condo buyer would benefit from a good realtor’s advise specially on how the building and unit compares to other condos in the area.

To get personal advice on buying or selling a Briarglen unit, contact Paige Martin, one of Houston’s best condo realtors and one of the top ranked Realtors in the United States.
