  Driving in an area that has been evolving steadily over the past thirty years gives us a chance to really enjoy the changes.   In the early ages the 28 mile trip to the Tomball area was a pleasant journey out from Houston. The pretty forested areas were interspersed with pastures and horse properties. The daily trips were via two lane mostly blacktopped roads. As people began to discover the well kept secrets of the country, the area grew and expanded into the Pinehurst and Magnolia townships.   Today Magnolia has grown from one elementary, Jr, and High school to several of each. There are shops lining the now four lane roads and there are subdivisions expanding the population dramatically. All the charm of small towns still exist but the bonuses of having conveniences and ease of tra...

  Although I did not know it at the time,my introduction into Real Estate in the late 1970s opened doors that I never would have found on my own. One blessing in particular came in the form of eye surgery for my middle son. He had an eye that traveled as he attempted to focus on any one thing. This created a vision problem that was not getting any better as he aged. With the vision problems also came anger. He did not know that he was angry, or why, but his behavior showed that he WAS angry. Not being able to see must be annoying. In seeking some relief from the obvious problems, we sought therapy in the form of horseback riding. For a small five year old child to be able to control a huge beast was therapeutic. We had also gotten a medical professional in to the mix. The Dr. had put th...

 SOLD **30711 Roadie Pass, Magnolia, TX**.  This great little house was in supurb condition and is now sold.  It was diamond in the rough, just waiting for the right buyer.  Luckily, I was able to negotiate successfully so it was a win-win situation for all parties. Here is a shot of the interior.  There weren't even any holes in the walls from pictures.  The house was so new that the previous owner had not had time to decorate like she wanted.  When you are ready to sell your Tomball, Magnolia or Houston home, give me a call.

Just a short drive from TOMBALL TX, is a piece of highway known as FM1488 where you can enjoy the NATURAL BEAUTY OF THE FOREST. As autumn approaches you may want to schedule some time in and or around a forested area where you can enjoy uncorrupted natural beauty. Lucky for us all there are many places in and around Tomball, Rosehill, Magnolia and Spring where there are such forested areas. There is very little like the beauty of the changing colors which can be seen in the forest. Even with the condensed seasons we find here in the Northwest Houston area, there are areas where colors can be enjoyed. Somewhere in almost everyone is a love for trees. Whether your favorite is a tall pine, a spectacular Water Oak, Live Oak, Red Oak, or a Pecan, Hickory or a Tallow, there is a good chance y...

Historic Magnolia Depot.  On the way home from a showing in Waller I happened to notice this sign, stating that the depot was open on Saturday and Sunday from 1 - 5pm and thought I'd take a look. The first thing you see before you go in is the caboose and this cute little gate. On the inside they have some nice train artifacts, including the RR Crossing sign below. The woodwork is just lovely.  The scallop trim makes me think of Switzerland for some reason. Here is the official Historical Medallion from the State of Texas Historical Commission.   Another view of the exterior of the RR Depot.   Here is the station agent ready to sell you your ticket.  Below are some War Ration Books.  I have never seen ration books, so they were interesting to me.  Sorry for the glare from the lights.  I...

Westwood, Magnolia TXis located at the intersection of FM 1488 and FM 2978.  If you are looking for a country subdivision that is decently priced but close to amenities then look no farther.  Westwood is a beautiful suddivision with plenty of towering pines and hardwoods. Most of the homes are located on lots that are just less than 1/2 acre at 20,000 square feet.  There are a few lots at 40,000 square feet or beyond but they would be in the minority. Westwoodis located on both sides of FM 1488.  The two sides of Westwood are caddy corner to each other.  Westwood is south of FM 1488, west of FM 2978 and to the east of Tamina. Westwood is also to the north of FM 1488 and to the east of FM 2978 going east to Westwood North. Westwood is actually closer to The Woodlands than it is to the ac...
