Buying a condo in St Germain Lofts can be tricky. It’s a converted building with only a few units sold each year. Some units have been updated while others are maintained to keep the “loft style” intact (exposed ductwork, high ceilings, brick walls). There are also a lot of new construction projects in the Downtown area. This is dramatically changing the views of other units, while also providing comparable condos in newer buildings.

“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.”
