“Brittney Coyle was with me every step of the way through not one, but two condo deals. When unusual complications arose, Brittney engaged the right people at the right time to make things happen and guide me safely through some perilous waters. I cannot count the times that I called or texted Brittney with a concern or question, only to find she had anticipated it and had already taken action. I could not have asked for more from Brittney and her team. Thanks also to Paige for being there with experienced guidance when the unexpected happened. The Houston Properties Team could have delivered less, and I still would have been completely satisfied. But they performed beyond expectations. Engage them with complete confidence.” - Reid McTaggart (Google Review)
