Welcome Home - Houston’s Neighborhoods

Houston, the nation’s fourth largest city, has hundreds of neighborhoods and subdivisions. No two are the same. But then, no two Houston home buyers are the same either.

Let Roger Martin Properties help you explore Houston’s close-in, close-knit communities of West University, Southside Place and Bellaire as you search for your next home. Our website provides easy access to custom MLS search tools. Our knowledgeable agents are eager to provide you the kind of insights that come from living in the prime neighborhoods, not just selling them.

For Sale - Work and Play Not Far Away

With names like West University Place, Braeswood Place, Southside Place and Bellaire, these popular areas are in their fourth or fifth generation of offering residents:

  • Fine schools
  • Friendly neighbors
  • Mature trees
  • Ever-more parks and recreational amenities
  • Shopping districts
  • Eclectic home styles at various price points

Even a sprawling metropolis like Houston has its charming, well-established communities. What’s unusual for a major city, however, is that many of these long-valued neighborhoods are near downtown. They’re also close to other work-and-play destinations, such as:

  • Texas Medical Center
  • Rice University
  • Museum District
  • Hermann Park
  • Memorial Park
  • The Galleria/Uptown

Drive around and you’ll note the architectural medley of original, updated and completely new homes, often right next to each other. Housing styles -- and proportions – incorporate design traditions from a century of accommodating the ever-evolving modern lifestyle.

Street Wise - Finding the Right Property

It’s not always obvious from Houston’s handy street grid where one prime subdivision gives way to another -- or enters one of the small, independent cities now surrounded by Houston proper, such as West University, Southside Place, or Braeswood Place.

For street-by-street, neighborhood-by-neighborhood nuances of the Houston real estate market, ask the experts at Roger Martin Properties. Their personal attention can help you:

  • Hone your home search, based on your preferences, such as type of home, budget, zip code, school district or other parameters.
  • Save you time in the current fast-paced housing market that demands buyers be informed and prepared for quick decisions.

Saving time is one of the reasons these neighborhoods continue to attract newcomers -- from around the world as well as from Houston’s own suburbs.
