“We were new to TX and I wrote an inquiry about 55+ communities, Brad Evans happened to answer my inquiry. I can’t say enough about his knowledge and expertise, he is a top notch realtor. We purchased a house with Brad’s help, but unfortunately had to pull out of the deal because there were structural issues. Brad stuck with us through everything, including finding a rental and then finding our forever house. He was always accessible, responded timely and worked incredibly hard to support us in every way possible. I can’t say enough good words for Brad - he was a true professional for us.” - Betsy Torrence (Google Review)

Manvel TX History

In the early 1850s, the area now known as Manvel was a vast prairie rich in game and fertile soil. The area’s first settlers were a young couple, W. R. Booth and his wife Elizabeth, who moved from Tyler County to the banks of the Chocolate Bayou in 1857.

More families settled in the area after the war. At first, the small settlement was known as Pomona. Later, the Gulf, Colorado, and Santa Fe Railroad reached the area, connecting the settlement to Galveston.

The town site’s name was later changed since another town in west Houston was called Pomona. The new name stemmed from Allen Manvel, the president of the Santa Fe Railroad.
