“We are so happy and consider ourselves very fortunate to have Danielle Wojcik of the Houston Properties Team as our realtor. We had a rental property which was on the market for over six months without success. Once Danielle took over. She helped us to sell that property in less than two weeks. We also engaged Danielle as our agent for our new home purchase. She worked tirelessly and diligently to provide market evaluation, review contract and construction schedule, attend meetings for various construction activities, arrange inspections, and detailed work through. She is such a nice lady to work with and we always know she is ready to help with any house related activities, including: moving, inspections...etc.” - PT Zaogoog (Google Review)

Clear Lake History

Clear Lake Houston can trace its roots back to a sprawling 30,000-acre ranch previously owned by James Marion West, a prominent businessman. West sold his property to Humble Oil – now known as ExxonMobil – after discovering oil on the property.

During the early 1960s, the Spacecraft Center of NASA set up shop next door, spurring the growth of Clear Lake. In 1963, Humble Oil and the Del E. Webb Corporation formed Friendswood Development to develop 15,000 acres of the property.

Clear Lake City annexed the city of Houston in 1977.

The community consists of several neighborhoods: Bay Forest, Bay Glen, Bay Knoll, Bay Oaks, Bay Pointe, Brook Forest, Brookwood, Clear Lake Forest, Camino South, Meadowgreen, Middlebrook, and Northfork, Oakbrook, Oakbrook West, and Pinebrook.
