"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)

Spring Branch Houston History


Spring Branch is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Houston. The Spring Branch area in Houston began as a religious community of German farmers in the 1830s. The earliest settler, Karl Kolbe, settled on the banks of Spring Branch where it joined Buffalo Bayou.

The heavily wooded area had an abundance of lumber that was used to build early local churches and shops. Many of the surrounding forest lands was cleared in 1848 to make way for farms, and farming became the primary industry in Spring Branch Houston.

As the area moved towards industrialization, the farmlands were sold and developed. They were replaced with subdivisions, schools, and shopping centers. Like most areas in Harris County, Spring Branch transitioned from being rural to urban.

Spring Branch has undergone many changes throughout the years, but many of the street names pay tribute to the first settlers.
