"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)

Shady Acres TX History

Like Lazybrook and Timbergrove Manor, Shady Acres started as a heavily wooded area. The neighborhood was named for the soaring shade trees that canopy the land.

Development started sometime in the 1920s. Back when the Shadyacres Investment Company purchased 100 acres from the Henry Reinermann Original Grant. The land was subdivided into one-acre lots and smaller parcels. At the time, Shady Acres was advertised as a close-in area with oversized lots.

In the 1930s, oil was discovered in a neighboring area. Workers from the Eureka Oil Field moved into the surrounding neighborhoods, and a rail station was also built.

In 1935, the Shady Acres Civic Club was founded. The SACC was instrumental in petitioning for bus service and city postal services. They also deal with the nearby oil drillers on behalf of the community.

Today, Shady Acres is an excellent neighborhood featuring a mix of old and new homes.
