VE Market Update
There is currently one property available for sale in Venetian Estates at 914 Piedmont. This half-acre, tree-shaded lot offers an ideal setting to design a dream home, large or small. The serenity provided by the sprawling, private lot rivals that of lakefront properties. This is a special opportunity to enjoy the beautiful lifestyle of Venetian Estates with an extra-large lot and a rare price point!
Last month we promised to introduce additional neighbors, and we are pleased to welcome two new families in this issue:
Jennifer Nguyen and David Mundy are the new owners of 702 Piedmont. Deborah Jodoin, the previous owner, was the first neighbor to demolish the original VE home on the lot and rebuild anew. Deborah was sad to leave her lovely home and backyard paradise but decided to downsize to a condo near her office.
Jennifer and David are thrilled to be engaged to be married and are very happy to be here in VE! Jennifer has two children and has lived in the Houston area for 15 years. Prior to Houston, she lived in California. Jennifer has worked in insurance for many years, and she currently owns a Farmers agency. David has four children and recently retired. He has lived in the Houston area most of his life, spending a few years in Boston. In addition to a houseful of children, they have cats who supervise everyone! We know David and Jennifer and children and cats are loving the home, large yard, and amazing view from their new home!
Debbie and Marvin Marcell purchased the Bergeron home at 603 Salerno. They are making a few changes prior to moving, but they may be in by the time you read this! Debbie is a Realtor, and Marvin is self-employed in Government Relations Consulting. The Marcells’ daughter Molly and son-in-law Mike Cooper have 11-year-old twin boys and a 5-year-old daughter. They are already enjoying fishing on Lake Venice, and we have told the Marcells that the grandkids will have plenty of neighborhood fishing buddies! Debbie and Marvin have another daughter and son-in-law in Dallas and three granddaughters there, ages 10, 6 and 5. The Marcells are moving from Sweetwater, and prior to that lived in Sienna. They have been thinking about VE for quite some time, and we are happy to finally have them as neighbors here!
Houston-area Market Update
In August, sales in the luxury residential market segment (homes priced $750k+) increased year-over-year by over 30%. While we expect to experience a slower pace in sales beginning this fall, steady growth and demand in the Houston area should sustain. Venetian Estates and immediate neighborhoods are especially well-positioned, as we offer both the convenience of access and proximity to the city and serenity of a cultivated suburb.
We currently have buyers queued up for all property types in VE, including remodeled or new homes, fixer-uppers, and lots. Please call us if you are considering selling. We love our work and especially enjoy helping buyers and sellers find their perfect matches and making the purchase/sale process fair and enjoyable.
We currently have a stunning Robert Dame-designed estate listed for sale in our “sister” neighborhood of Alkire Lake. The gorgeous home at 1309 N. Horseshoe Drive exudes quality and timeless beauty, and the 2+ acre lot boasts a gorgeous grove of oak trees and one of the finest, panoramic lake views in Alkire. Celebrate the coming of fall this weekend and stop by, whether considering the home for yourself or a friend or simply to enjoy the beauty of the home and say hello!
