BBBB for the Week of Sept 29, 2019: 🏘️ Six New + Field Day 🏫 📚 🏆

in Becky's Best Bungalow Bets, Heights

Hello BBBB Friends:

After last week's rain event, it was back to business as usual for real estate in the Heights. I am featuring 6 new listings today ranging from a 2/2 bungalow priced under $500k to a large 4/3/1 recent construction Prairie style home priced at just under $1.4m. I also have a few price changes, new contracts and final sales to report from properties that are Still on My List. Keep scrolling down to see new contracts, final sales and price changes

Huge Win for Field Elementary
Shout out to the administration, staff, students and families of Field Elementary School, the recipient of a 2019 National Blue Ribbon Award, one of the nation's highest honors for academic success. Contributing to its success is principal John Hendrickson and his leadership team who have run the campus together for an amazing 14 years. (Nationally, 362 campuses received the recognition including two other Houston Schools, River Oaks Baptist and Project Chrysalis Middle School.)

Four of my featured listings plus my featured open house are zoned to Field Elementary. 

Have a great week and,

Let’s go look at houses or talk about selling yours!!!
