Venetian Estates News - January 2019

Real Estate and More
VE Market Update
Last year there were 12 MLS recorded sales in Venetian Estates.  There were also 4 unrecorded sales – homes and/or lots that sold prior to being advertised on the Houston area Multiple Listing Service. Sales prices ranged from $380,000 to $1.3 million.

Presently there are eight available properties ranging in price from $575k to $1.5+ million. Three of these properties are not yet posted on the MLS; however, we are able to show them now! Contact us if you or a friend is interested in purchasing a recent-construction home, a great home to remodel or a gorgeous lot on which to build.

Venetian Estates Wins!
We are delighted that our neighbors on the ballot in the Mid-Term Elections were successful! Congressman Pete Olson was re-elected for another term and Robert (Bob) Rolnick was elected as the new Judge of the 458th District Court in FBC.  Congratulations to you both and thank you for serving!

Future New Neighbors
We mentioned in our last newsletter that Staci and Jason Pierce were leasing the Olsons’ home on Saint Marks while they build their personal home on the lot they purchased at 903 Gondola. Construction is underway!

Staci and Jason both grew up in Sugar Land and recently sold their beautiful home in “The Hill.” Staci and Jason have two boys: Ashton is 7 and Parker is 5. Both boys love to fish and play outside, making VE the perfect neighborhood for this family. Jason and Staci own Pierce Built Homes.  Originally Jason took a potential client to see 903 Gondola. While in the back yard, Jason fell in love with the gorgeous and serene view of Lake Eldridge.  The Pierces are delighted to be building their own home on this spectacular lot, where they say they will be making new memories. They are so happy to be near old friends in their previous neighborhood and are looking forward to making new friends in VE.

Samar Yusuf and Anum Siddiqui purchased Tanya and Jan Archer’s home at 815 Piedmont. (Tanya and Jan have moved to the Bryan-College Station area.) Samar and Anum are very excited to be a part of Venetian Estates. They will build a new home on the lot and are currently finalizing construction plans with their architect.

Samar is an Emergency Medicine Physician and primarily works at Signature Care Emergency Room (Highway 90-A and Murphy Rd). Anum is a CPA and works as an Internal Auditor at a Chemical company. Their dog, Bella, is excited to move out of a townhouse and have a backyard! Samar and Anum currently have no children but hope to start a family in Venetian Estates. They really wanted to live in a neighborhood with a sense of community, in which case VE can’t be beat! Samar told us at closing that they made the final decision to move to VE after reading FBRE’s Blog, VenetianEstatesNews.com. While we don’t always keep it current up-to-the-minute, it is an effective tool to keep abreast of neighborhood happenings and maximize exposure for FBRE clients.

More Future New Neighbors…Lee Ann and Jon Anderson purchased the previous home of Cheryl White at 607 Salerno. Cheryl and her husband, Craig, now live in Del Webb. Jon and Lee Ann are twenty-year residents of Sugar Land. They have one daughter, Jennifer (21 years old), who is attending Wharton Jr. College and working toward a nursing degree. They also have a 14-year-old Welsh Terrier named Molly. The Andersons plan to start construction of their new home in March and are hoping to be in by 2020. Jon and Lee Ann presently live in Riverston­e but are looking forward to living in our neighborhood!
