“My husband relocated us to Texas for a job and we have never lived here before. Selling our home and buying a home in Texas was rather stressful. Brittney, from Houston Properties was our realator and she was awesome. She searched MANY homes with us and answered our many questions to help us find the right home. She was patient, friendly and genuine. Our move here would have been more stressful I'm sure without Brittney helping us. She is a true asset and her team was wonderful as well. Always on top of things and making sure nothing was missed. We are truly greatful for all she did.” - L L (Google Review)
