"We were moving from Virginia, and Houston Properties kept in touch with us for almost a year until we were ready to relocate. They guided us through the entire process and were very kind, friendly, and knowledgeable. The sellers' market made the home buying process very stressful for us, but they were able to manage that and keep us focused on finding a home we would love. The team was always quick to respond to my numerous emails and texts and sent us daily updates regarding new homes coming on the market. When things could have fallen apart after appraisal, they helped us to negotiate with the seller. Words or the 5-star rating cannot really express the wonderful experience we received from them. We would 100% recommend Houston Properties for your home buying or selling needs!" - Yolanda Hicks (Google Review)

Friendswood TX History


Friendswood Home

Friendswood was once a land of Fig orchards, Satsuma orange orchards, and rice fields until Quakers Frank Jacob Brown and Thomas Hadley Lewis caught sight of the 1,538 acres of prairie area.
Believing it was the "Promised Land" for their colony, they purchased the deed of trust from the owner, Galveston banker J.C. League. On July 15, 1895, the colony's name, Friendswood, was recorded at a courthouse in Galveston.

The colony's name spread among the Quakers, and soon, many families joined them. By 1920, the population rose, thanks to Houston developers luring farmers into the land.

The war reduced the growth in the 1940s, but properties along the creeks started the trend. Steady growth continued through the 1970s and 1980s.

Today, Friendswood is home to a diverse mix of architectural-styled properties, many of which are vintage ranch-style homes.

The city also features fine businesses such as restaurants, bars, and retail centers. Friendswood is also home to parks, some of the highly rated schools in the area, outdoor activity centers, and 266 acres of green space and nature trails.
