The neighborhood also covers a large-scale area, and some parts remain underdeveloped. These factors can greatly affect the resale values of the properties. Thus, having a reliable realtor is a must.

“We definitely recommend the Houston Properties Team. We were relocating to Houston from Dallas. We figure it would be difficult to look for homes being out of town; however our realtor, Brittney Coyle, made it an easy process. She was flexible and learned our style quickly. Through video chats, she would walk us through the homes like we were there, pointing out details of the homes. Brittney was very knowledgeable on the neighborhoods we were looking at. With the current market, we did go through many offers. Brittney was patient and responsive when we had questions. Brittney’s service did not end when the sale was completed. After closing on our home, she has provided recommendations for move in service, helped us get quotes for cleaners, and assist with setting up our water. It has been a delight to work Brittney.” - Gee Dee (Google Review)

Porter TX History

Porter is an unincorporated community in Montgomery County in southeastern Texas. It is within the Houston–The Woodlands-Sugar Land metropolitan area.

The earliest settlement in east Montgomery County developed in what is now New Caney, just north of Porter. The Houston, East, and West Texas Railroad was built through the area in the late 1870s and 1880s. An influx of settlers moved to various points along the new railway. When the post office opened in 1892, the town was referred to as Porters. In 1953, the post office dropped the "s," resulting in the town's current name of Porter.
