“We worked with the Houston Properties team for a work-relocation in 2nd quarter of 2022. We had a pretty short timeline to find a suitable home, make an offer, and close on the property. Holly and team were fabulous in helping us narrow our search so we could be very efficient with our house-hunting trip. We got an offer accepted on our #1 property with quick close date. Holly and the team were very helpful in managing details associated with the move including intercepting packages that were delivered to the address before we closed on the house. Also provided useful support for months after we moved including helpful references to services that might be needed for general property upkeep and any potential emergency weather-related needs due to the recent freeze. Highly recommend HPT!” - Kelli Wright (Google Review)

Tanglewood Area TX History

The Humble Pipeline Company (now Exxon) first owned Tanglewood. The William G. Farrington Company started developing in the 1930s when it acquired the land.

The neighborhood first offered seven air-conditioned ranch-style homes in its first section.

Tanglewood came from “Tanglewood Tales” by Nathaniel Hawthorne.

Each lot had two oaks planted, in addition to three oaks on every corner. Tanglewood remains one of the most beautiful wooded areas in Houston.

Sales were slow for the first few months. Interest in Tanglewood homes increased after the flooding in Harris County. The area had high water drainage. It was one of the few areas in the county that weren’t affected by the floods.

The Tanglewood Homes Association (THA) started in 1967. Today, it still maintains the neighborhood’s common areas. It enforces deed restrictions and hires additional security as well.

The Tanglewood Area improved over the years and belonged to one of Houston’s most expensive neighborhoods.
