"Selling your home is an emotional process. For that, it is important to work with the best real estate agency out there. From the moment we decided to sell, Houston Properties Team was there for us. They took their time to get to know us, what our needs were and when it would be the right time to sell, and for what price. We received a detailed timeline so we knew exactly where we were in the process at all times. They were very knowledgeable and went above and beyond for us. They were very patient, answered every question we had big or small promptly, and always provided us with the information we needed. I highly recommend working with the Houston Properties Team. Thanks to them, we had a very smooth sale and found the perfect new owners for our house." - Olivia Simoen-Deman (Google Review)

Lazybrook Houston History


Taking its name from the White Oak Bayou, Lazybrook is one of Houston’s late bloomers. Lazybrook remained undeveloped and covered in trees between the early 1940s and the 1950s.

During the early 1940s and 1950s, Lazybrook remained largely wooded and undeveloped. The development of the top Houston freeways spurred the neighborhood’s suburban growth.

In the 1800s, German farmers firstly owned the Lazybrook and Timbergrove area. It was also the site of a top oil discovery during the 1930s. Eureka Yard (a nearby railroad yard) and St. John’s German Lutheran Church (one of the first churches built in Houston) serve as a reminder of these years. Both landmarks remain standing today.

Lazybrook underwent top residential and urban development in the 1960s and 1970s. About 20-30 years ago, many young professionals started to buy ranch-style homes in the area. Some built newer, more modern properties, while others opted to renovate them.

Real estate developers also started numerous townhome projects around Lazybrook. Heritage Creek, Timbergrove Heights, and Timbergrove Terrace are among the townhome developments.

Residents founded the Lazybrook Civic Club in 1960. One of the organization’s main objectives is to uphold all building regulations. Second, an advocate for changes. And lastly, bring about changes. These objective aims to advance the community and the welfare of its residents. The Civic Club is an active and volunteer-based group.

Today, Lazybrook is a quiet but sprawling neighborhood with nine sections. The nine sections map out the neighborhood’s deed restrictions, paving the way for a well-developed community.
