“This team was great to work with! Being out of state Buyers, we took comfort in knowing there was a group of professionals here working for us at times that we couldn’t physically be present. For the most part, we worked with Brad Evans and Laura Banda, and they went above and beyond. From conducting virtual showings, attending inspections, and even meeting with contractors for us, we were very pleased with the outcome of our home buying experience!” - Cathie Wechsler (Google Review)

Hudson Forest TX History
Hudson Forest was once the site of Camp Hudson. It is a Boy Scout camp property.
In 1925, E. A. Hudson, a local business owner, and Boy Scout Council President donated the 125-acre wooded property skirting the banks of the Buffalo Bayou. By the 1960s, the camp played host to several Boy Scout events, including district training, weekend camping, day camps, and picnics.
In the 1970s, the Scouts decided to let go of the property, since Houston’s westward expansion had made Camp Hudson less remote. Due to their fondness of the property, the Scouts were very selective of the companies intending to purchase it.
The property ultimately went to the Christiana Company, helmed by California developer Martin Fenton. Fenton’s plan ensured that mature trees around the property are preserved, plotting the community’s roads to follow the roaming trails in the area.
Christiana Company decided to sell some of the acreages to Levering & Reed (developed their parcel into Woods at Hudson), opting to keep around 50 acres.
Hudson Forest was developed in phases, starting with six model homes with open floor plans and a certain California flavor.
In 1978, Christiana Company sold another portion of the property to Frank Liu, who developed the parcel into Hudson Circle.
Today, Hudson Forest is one of Houston’s best-gated communities, prized for its lush environment, great homes, and excellent location.
