“My husband and I had Courtney as our realtor and we just bought our first home with her. She was awesome, made it really clear what the process would be like, made time for phone calls and house viewings almost every weekend if we needed. Once in the option and closing periods she made it very easy to keep on top of everything and was always available when we needed to ask questions. I would highly recommend working with Courntey and the Houston Properties Team.” - Lucy Andrew (Google Review)

The Texas Medical Center was established in 1945 with the help of the M.D. The Anderson Foundation. Due to estate taxes, Anderson started the foundation to prevent the dissolution of his partnership.

Many developments followed suit. This includes the Texas Children’s Hospital and Houston Methodist Hospital.
