Venetian Estates News February 2022

Real Estate and More…

VE Market Update
There is currently one property listed for sale in Venetian Estates. We have two pending sales, and we now need other properties to market and sell!

We have buyers to fit almost every home/lot in the neighborhood. Several prospects who are waiting for the right property are extremely flexible with timing. For example, some would like to purchase a property now and lease the home back to the seller while they plan for their move and any renovations or new construction. This structure provides the seller with the funds and luxury of time to purchase the right “replacement” property—whether it be immediately or months in the future. We have successfully closed many transactions under this arrangement, and it has worked beautifully for buyers and sellers alike!

We would love to represent you in marketing and selling your home, and we strive to provide Venetian Estates residents with a seamless, stress-free transaction. For references, we would be happy to have you speak with any of our past clients!

Neighbor News
We would like to introduce you to our newest neighbors, Meaghan and Tam Vuong. The Vuongs purchased 314 Lombardy, the previous home of longtime neighbors, Ann and Joel Tucker. Meaghan and Tam have two sons, Trent (20) and Winston (18) and a beautiful baby Shih Tzu (2) named Duke. The Vuongs moved from Barrington in Sugar Land, where they had lived for the past 20 years. They had always hoped to find a one-story in Venetian just the right size for an “almost” empty-nest couple! Dr. Vuong has been a chiropractor in Houston for the past 20 years, and Meaghan helps run his busy office. Meaghan says they cannot wait to get cozy in the neighborhood and venture out to meet everyone.

We will introduce you to our future new neighbors at 402 Piedmont and 914 Piedmont in our next newsletter.

Houston Real Estate News
According to Houston Agent Magazine a Houston housing and hotel project reached a construction milestone this month, topping off the 35-story condo-hotel tower with a ceremonial beam.

A laser light show at the Residences at The Allen and the Thompson Houston hotel marked the occasion. The $500 million project sits across six acres at Allen Parkway and Gillette Street in Houston, overlooking Buffalo Bayou Park. The hotel will feature 170 rooms and occupy the first 15 floors of the building.

The residences, on floors 16-35, will include 99 one-, two- and three-bedroom condominiums and penthouses, ranging from 919 up to 10,000 square feet. Amenities include 24-hour concierge, valet and resident lobby separate from the hotel, plus room service, spa, pool deck, cabanas and restaurants. There also will be a helistop to accommodate drone deliveries! Units are 55% sold. The hotel-condo is expected to be complete in 2023.

Kelly has expertise in the Houston luxury market and would be happy to represent you in the purchase of a penthouse residence should you be interested in a major lifestyle change! 😊
