"We were moving from Virginia, and Houston Properties kept in touch with us for almost a year until we were ready to relocate. They guided us through the entire process and were very kind, friendly, and knowledgeable. The sellers' market made the home buying process very stressful for us, but they were able to manage that and keep us focused on finding a home we would love. The team was always quick to respond to my numerous emails and texts and sent us daily updates regarding new homes coming on the market. When things could have fallen apart after appraisal, they helped us to negotiate with the seller. Words or the 5-star rating cannot really express the wonderful experience we received from them. We would 100% recommend Houston Properties for your home buying or selling needs!" - Yolanda Hicks (Google Review)

Hunters Creek Village TX History


Like most of the Memorial area, some of Hunters Creek Village's early settlers were farmers. Sawmills and a handful of homes were in the area during the 1930s.

Growth in Hunters Creek started in earnest a couple of decades later, during the 1950s and 60s. The completion of the I-10 and Houston's housing boom led to developers building subdivisions and homes for upper-middle-class families along the Buffalo Bayou.

During this period, Houston was looking to expand its borders to include unincorporated neighborhoods. Looking to prevent annexation and preserve residential zoning, Hunters Creek, along with 5 other villages, petitioned for incorporation.

In 1954, Hunters Creek was incorporated with a mayor-alderman type of government. By the mid-1960s, Hunters Creek Village had a school and a church.

From 1960 to 1980, the village's population almost doubled, from 2,478 to 4,580.

Today, Hunters Creek Village operates as an independent city. It also co-operates the Memorial Villages Police Department with Bunker Hill and Piney Point. The Village Fire Department and the Memorial Villages Water Authority serve all 6 villages.

Forbes lists Hunters Creek as one of the "Top Suburbs to Live Well". A BusinessWeek study named Hunters Creek Village the most expensive suburb in Texas.

Among the most expensive neighborhoods in west Houston, Hunters Creek features gated subdivisions, upscale homes, and grand estates.
