Relocating to Houston

I'm looking for a home in Houston and three areas have been sugessted: The Woodlands, Conroe, and neighborhoods within the Loop. I plan to visit next weekend and want to know your thoughts of these areas. I have no small children, so schools are not a factor. But safety, comfort, nicely manicured/established neighborhoods, and access to major parts of city are. Secondly, what is the Loop? Lastly, can anyone recommend a realtor? Thanks.

Hey - I would definitely suggest living inside the loop (unless of course you will be working in another area of Houston). It defintely gives you easy access to a variety of attractions/amenities, and very nice homes/property. Another area I would suggest would be the "Memorial" area. Memorial is a street that runs through Houston, from inside the loop to Highway 6. It has numerous nice neighborhoods along it, and a good part of Memorial runs next to Memorial Park - a houston favorite for the athletic, and those that just like to get out and about and enjoy a warm day!

Anyways, just my suggestions, if you need an absolutely fabulous realtor I would suggest the following:

Jan Beebe

Broker Associate

Heritage Texas Properties

14340 Memorial Drive

Houston, TX 77079

OFFICE: 281-493-3880

EMAIL: JBeebe@heritagetexas.com


Good Luck on the move!!

There are alot of upscale apartment complexes in the galleria area but it's not a pleasant place to live due to construction, serious traffic and smog.

One example of somewhere with a very nice pool and communal facilites is at 1600 Post Oak Blvd

Have a look on www.har.com for more specific properties or www.apartmentguide.com
