Venetian Estates News June 2018

Market Update

Presently there are five Venetian Estates homes and one vacant lot listed for sale on the MLS, ranging in price from $429,000 to $1,300,000. Our listing at 214 Lombardy is a very special property. Although not directly on the water, this gorgeous, nearly ½-acre wooded lot has a spectacular long view down Lake Venice beyond its back fence. The approximately 2045-SF home, priced at $429,000 (well below anything else in VE!), could be a charming cottage for someone wishing to remodel and live in our amazing neighborhood! If you know of anyone who might be interested in this fixer-upper, have them contact Kelly for some awesome and inspiring ideas! She may be a full time commercial and residential real estate broker but she certainly has proven her flair for design with many of her real estate clients!

There are two pending sales in the neighborhood: the home at 118 Tuscany and the vacant lot at 115 Capri. We can't wait to tell you about the plans for 115 Capri, scheduled to close early fall!

Since January 1 of this year the Houston Association of Realtors reported six closed sales in Venetian. In all six sales FBRE (Susan or Kelly) represented the buyer or seller, or acted as intermediary in the transaction. We know and love this neighborhood, and our expertise and private-client based approach serve clients better than anyone else in the luxury real estate industry.

The FBRE Advantage
As of June 19, the Houston Association of Realtors ranks Susan Friedman as the #1 agent in Sugar Land North based on total volume of real estate sales in the past 6 months. We don't usually follow the rankings, so Susan only became aware of this when an agent with a different firm pointed it out!

We represent sellers and buyers throughout greater Houston. Kelly recently closed a residential transaction in Kingwood for one of her longtime commercial clients, and Susan just listed a home in Katy. We would be glad to help with any of your real estate needs. As Kelly stated in the April Newsletter, our boutique nature enables us to customize services to meet clients' requirements in any facet of real estate.

New Neighbor News

Linda and Bob Speer of 603 Salerno moved to be closer to grandkids, and our new neighbors are Latonya and Curtis Bergeron. Tonya and Curtis moved from Greatwood, where they had lived since 2005. They are a military (Army) family. Curtis retired from active federal service as a Command Sergeant Major (CSM) a few years ago and Tonya was a CPT (Dentist) in the dental corp. Both are combat veterans. Curtis (Health Care Administration) and Tonya (Staff Dentist) both work at the Department of Veterans Affairs. The Bergerons have three adult children, Joscelynn, Breanna and Kaija. Curtis III is 15 and lives in North Carolina, and their son, Jordon is 10 years old and attends Cornerstone Christian Academy in Sugar Land. Curtis and Tonya were looking to downsize to a one-story home on a large lake lot. They are excited to live in Venetian Estates with warm neighbors and a small-town feel.

New neighbors at 915 Piedmont are Lesley and Chad Guidry. Lesley and Chad moved from Jersey Village and are delighted to be in Sugar Land, especially since Lesley is the Payroll Services Manager for CU People in our office building! After fighting traffic daily, she can now walk to work! Chad is a network architect at C & J Energy. The Guidrys have a precious two-year-old daughter named Mavis. Lesley and Chad moved to Houston almost 7 years ago and Lesley says they have never looked back. They didn't want to go back to small town living but felt Sugar Land offered the best of both worlds. We helped Lesley and Chad search for the perfect home for almost a year and finally found it right here in Venetian! The Guidrys have big plans for their new home and can't wait to make it their own. They look forward to Mavis having the chance to grow up on the water, with the serenity and entertainment it provides. Previous owners, Catherine and Rick Bell and their family moved to Richmond as Rick is now serving as a District Court judge in Fort Bend County. It’s been special to see this home transition from one sweet young family to another!
