Dear Venetian Estates Neighbor,

We have a new listing at 919 San Marino. This pretty one-story has been meticulously updated and cared for and is situated on an expansive, tree-shaded lot. The light and bright home features custom bookshelves, crown molding and large windows throughout. The home has large living areas, with wood flooring in the living and dining rooms and tile flooring in the family room and kitchen. The updated master bath has the most beautiful travertine ever! The master bedroom is huge and overlooks the pretty, private and shady back yard. The front yard is beautiful as well! From the swing under the large oak tree you look out over Lake Eldridge. The flagstone walkway and porch complete this picturesque and serene setting. It is priced at $469,000. Tell your friends and have them call me for an appointment to see it!

Our new neighbors at 302 Lombardy are Jean and Greg Waleke. Greg and Jean purchased the home late last year and have now actually moved in, so we can truly welcome them to the neighborhood. The Walekes took a beautiful home and made it even more beautiful! Greg is CEO/owner of Redi Carpet with offices in Stafford. Jean gave up her career several years ago while raising a family. She was formerly systems manager for HL & P (Reliant Energy). The Walekes have four adult children. Their son and daughter-in-law live here in Sugar Land and have a 2 ½ year old son. They have a daughter and son-in-law in Austin and an 18 month old granddaughter there as well. Another daughter and her husband live in Denton. They hold their Doctorates in Music and are professors of classical guitar. The Waleke’s youngest daughter is working on her MBA at the University of Texas.

The annual VE Fishing Tournament and Picnic is this Saturday, May 15! Fishing begins at 6:30 AM and the tournament ends at 3 PM. The fishing “weigh station” will be located at the Barrett’s home at 123 St Marks. (Look for the beautiful yard and shady dock with flags flying.) The picnic will be in “Doc” Seibel’s back yard at 714 Salerno from 6 PM until 8:30 PM. See your Mailsail for tournament registration and additional information.

This weekend will not only provide the opportunity for fun with neighbors, but will also be a great weekend for previewing VE homes! 103 Savoy Street (which has a new price!) will be OPEN SATURDAY FROM 11 AM UNTIL 2 PM. Tie up your boat and join me for a Popsicle break in the beautiful shady back yard! Look for the Open House sign and blue and red flags/balloons on the dock. If you have friends fishing in the tournament, be sure to stop by with them. (I hear this is one of the best fishing spots on the lake!) Even if you are not fishing, please drop in or send your friends to the front door. Popsicles for all!

Another great house to see this Saturday is 819 Piedmont. Absolutely striking inside, it has a lovely screened-in porch overlooking the private back yard and Estates Lake. This home has a new price as well! 819 Piedmont will be available to be shown by appointment any time on Saturday. If you or a friend would like to see any Venetian Estates homes this weekend please give me a call. Current prices range from $379,000 to $895,000 on the nine properties presently available.

Susan and Howard Marblestone (702 Salerno) would like to organize a 4th of July parade this year! Boats will meet in front of their dock and the parade will begin at 6:30 PM. If you would like your canal to be included in the parade route please contact Susan or Howard at 281-491-0690 or email Susan at SusanMarblestone@gmail.com.

Hope to see everyone this weekend! I am going to pull out some of my old fishing tournament/picnic pictures to display at the Open House. What better way to sell VE?! My daughter Katie has already asked me not to show the ones of her when she was about four years old and quite immodest in her bathing suit! Our family had some good laughs remembering tournaments, picnics and 4th of July parades from years past.
