“Yolanda was amaaazing! My husband and I are second time home buyers and with Yolanda’s help, this experience was so much better. From our initial meeting, Yolanda was very approachable, kind, and very knowledgeable. The best thing about her is that she really listened to what we were looking for and she really was our #1 advocate. Before we got her on our team, we were about to buy a house that was “too good to be true” and we thought we were getting a good deal for it. But thankfully, we had Yolanda join our team and educated us on things that we really did not realize. But what I appreciated most was that she was always very loving and kind in her approach to letting us know how the house we chose was a bad idea. She always checked in to really listen to what we wanted in a new house and reassured us that we should not settle. Soon after that, she was able to find the perfect house for us! Her professionalism and communication were also top notch! I highly recommend her!” - Iris Chen (Google Review)

Hilshire Village TX History

In the 1940s, Frank Bruess and his mother purchased about 30 acres of land in what is now known as Hilshire Village. Bruess saw Houston as a burgeoning city and moved his family there from his native Missouri.

As the story goes, the name Hilshire came from an article about Hillshire, a country estate in England that Bruess chanced upon while on a business trip. Hilshire Village eventually won over two other names considered for the budding development.

Hilshire's first home was that of Bruess' mother, on the neighborhood's first street, Pine Chase.

Some years later, Houston was looking to expand toward the area beyond Wirt Road. As a response, notably because of fears over high taxes and the lack of zoning laws, concerned residents filed a petition for incorporation.

Hilshire was incorporated in 1955 with a mayor-city council type of government.

Apart from improved city services and roads, nothing much has changed in Hilshire Village. The neighborhood encapsulates traits for which the Memorial Villages are best known: tree-lined streets and wooded lots, elegant homes, and a distinct country-living atmosphere.
