We know it can be daunting for people who are relocating, especially when you read headlines about our history of flooding.

To get you started on the journey, here are a few topics we recommend for those new to the Houston real estate scene:
- Commute (keep reading!)
- Top Ranked Schools
- Proximity to restaurants, sports, art & entertainment
- Hiking & biking
- Quality investment themes
- What to avoid when buying in Houston

We believe your home is an investment - both in the life you want to lead and also to help you generate long term wealth.

We also believe in quality analysis. We look at short & long-term investment trends to help our clients make the right decision in finding their new home.

"As a couple where both of us have worked with ExxonMobil for over 30 years when we moved to Houston we had a long list of wants and needs. Paige Martin and The Houston Properties Team helped us every step of the way. We loved that, much like us, they are data hounds and based every decision and advice on sound analysis of targeted numbers and historical trends. We definitely recommend Paige and her team to anyone looking to relocate to Houston."
