Raintree Place Real Estate Guide

One of Houston’s Best Gated Communities, Raintree Place is tucked away in a secluded area between River Oaks and the Galleria area. Known for its proximity to Houston’s key locations, the community is often called one of Houston’s “best-kept secrets.”

Raintree Place is famous because of its:

Raintree Place real estate can be challenging to navigate due to the neighborhood's deed restrictions and limited inventory. Apart from the tight home inventory and deed restrictions, some homes are located near train tracks.

“Yolanda and the whole Houston Properties Team are incredible and we whole heartedly recommend them. Yolanda was our buyers agent when we purchased our house in Pearland back in 2019. We were moving to Pearland from out of state and Yolanda expertly guided us the whole way, even as we were thousands of miles away. She was so professional, efficient, and personable, which immediately put our minds at ease and made us feel confident that we were in good hands. When we decided to move to a different city, it wasn’t even a question that we would ask Yolanda to be our sellers agent. We contacted Yolanda on a Sunday and she had our house staged, beautifully photographed, and listed by the following Friday, which was a crazy fast turnaround. We had our first all cash offer in hand two days later. Three days after that, however, our buyers backed out, which put us in jeopardy of losing the house we were trying to buy in our new city. But then, within a few hours, Yolanda had somehow rustled us up a new offer. Simultaneously buying and selling a house was a crazy roller coaster. It seemed like every possible thing that could derail either or both deals surfaced and yet Yolanda shepherded us through with grace, tenacity, and determination. She always presented us with our options and let us make the choice, and then fiercely advocated on our behalf. She was always available and made us feel like we were top priority, even though I’m sure she had many other clients at the time. We really felt like she cared about us and had a vested interest in everything working out on our behalf, and that made the craziness of the whole experience much more tolerable. If you’re looking for a realtor who is equal parts competence and warmth, organized, and a true expert in the market, then look no further. We truly could not recommend Yolanda more strongly. If you’re buying or selling in the Houston area, it’s a no brainer to choose Yolanda.” - Jgskupien (Google Review)

Raintree Place Houston History

Don and Allen Culwell laid out Raintree Place’s townhomes in 1972. It was after he registered the Raintree Place Property Owners Association the year before.

The community was built in the 1990s.

The Culwells and the community’s pioneer homeowners formed Raintree Place’s first architectural committee, which met regularly to approve new townhomes. Thanks to the HOA’s efforts, deed restrictions and regulations were put in place.

The property association is still active today, led by 5 elected officers of the Board of Trustees. The board is responsible for maintaining common areas (including roads, lighting, and landscaping), enforcing deed restrictions, and hiring security.
