September News

Extreme Makeovers!

There are 10 available homes in Venetian Estates priced from $349,000 to $864,000. The new price of 819 Piedmont is $349,000. WOW! What a reduction and what a house! This should sell quickly at the new price. My listing at 907 Gondola is pending sale and scheduled to close in early November. It was only on the market for about two weeks before it sold!

Makeover #1

I am very excited to introduce our new neighbors at 306 Lombardy. Virginia and George (Buck) Prince purchased the home and will be doing extensive work prior to moving in. If you have driven by the home you have certainly noticed a change in the exterior appearance. Fewer trees surround the home and there is much more to come--or perhaps I should say “to go!” Virginia and Buck presently live in Sugar Lakes. Buck’s company, Prince Food Systems, has certainly been around for a while! His father started Princes Hamburgers in Dallas in 1929 and Princes Hamburgers came to Houston in 1934.

Makeover #2

If you haven’t driven down Savoy lately, check out 411. We, here in Venetian, are in somewhat of a transition period. Some of our older homes are in fantastic condition and many have been beautifully updated and remodeled. Others need more work, and sometimes it is more cost effective for owners to simply start over – obviously the case at 411 Savoy.

Other new neighbors who have not been introduced are Wen-Li Chang and her husband, Bernard Yu. Wen-Li and Bernard purchased the home at 910 Genova in April of this year. Wen-Li is an internal medicine physician who offices in the Methodist Hospital Medical building. Bernard is an ophthalmologist and offices in Sugar Land as well. Their son Stanley is attending HCC and planning to transfer to U of H or another university this year. Wen-Li’s niece, Mary Lang also lives with the family. Wen-Li and Bernard have lived in Sugar Land for 15 years – in five different houses! They are delighted to be in VE and don’t plan to move again! (They have an incredible cul-de-sac lot overlooking the bird reserve on Alkire.)
