“Yolanda Ames with the Houston Properties Team has been nothing but an absolute pleasure working with. Having had less than stellar experiences with realtors before, Yolanda couldn’t be more of the opposite. She provided information that was helpful not only on the buying front but also the selling front down the line. Whenever something came up that she wasn’t positive about she used her resources to find the answer for me. I am thankful to have found an agent that shares the same commitment to excellence and beyond. This was my first home purchase and look forward to working with her continually down the line.” - Shah Islam (Google Review)

Whispering Oaks TX History


Like nearby subdivisions Frostwood and Memorial Forest, Whispering Oaks was developed in the mid-1950s. Developers designed and built the neighborhood within a primarily rural area before WWII.

Sawmills, farms, and a few homes used to occupy some parts of the lush areas around the Buffalo Bayou. Developers took notice and started buying up properties in the Memorial area after the completion of Interstate 10. The post-war housing boom also encouraged massive development in the area, building more homes in the community.

The Houston Whispering Oaks Civic Club was established some years later, in 1978.

Many years after its founding, Whispering Oaks continues to be a popular neighborhood within the Memorial area.
