“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.”
  • LOW HOA FEES: To keep association costs low, the developers designed The Chesterfield as a “non-amenitized” boutique midrise. The monthly maintenance fee is expected to be one of the lowest in Houston. (See Houston Condos: HOA Fees & Amenities)

Buying a condo in The Chesterfield can be tricky. It’s a new building so there are limited historical sales trends (like you can find from some of Houston’s top performing luxury condos).

The Museum District Area is also home to numerous condo and loft buildings, each with its own pro’s and con’s. A Chesterfield condo buyer would benefit from a good Realtor’s advise specially on how the building and unit compares to other residential condos in the district.
