“I would recommend Brad to anyone buying or selling a house. Brad helped me to sell my home in a very difficult circumstance. He was extremely knowledgeable and communicated frequently throughout the selling process. His extensive communication was demonstrated by anticipating my questions before they were asked. I knew what was happening every step of the way. Although, we had some challenging and complex issues with the closing, Brad was able to intervene to ensure that sale went through. Without Brad's expertise I do not know if my house would have sold. Brad is the only realtor I would call if selling or buying a home in Houston! I highly recommend Brad!” - julie young (Google Review)

Missouri City TX History

Steeped in history, Missouri City traces its roots back to the Buffalo Bayou, Brazos, and Colorado Railway (BBB&C). It was the first railroad in Texas, and it started operating in 1853, running from Harrisburg to Stafford'sStafford's Point (now Houston and Stafford, respectively).

In 1890, two enterprising investors, R.M. Cash and L.E. Luckle, acquired a 4-square-mile parcel along the rail line. The real estate investors promoted the property in St. Louis, Missouri. They called it "a land of genial sunshine and eternal summer," an image still features heavily in the city's logo today.

Three years later, W.R. McElroy also purchased an 80-acre parcel in the area and ran an advertising effort similar to that of Cash and Luckey'sLuckey's. He dubbed the area "Missouri City" to tie his parcel to the earlier campaign.

The town was registered in the mid-1890s with the Harris County and Fort Bend County clerks. By 1956, residents made a move toward incorporation due mainly to fears of annexation.

Today, Missouri City is still growing. Master-planned communities, industrial parks, and established neighborhoods make up the city, a mix of new and old.
