Foyer Stairway before Home Staging Consultation Foyer Stairway after Home Staging Consultation This house was in a upper end neighborhood in Houston that has some homes with classic characteristics, mixed with brand new homes with updated touches.  The home had seen about 14 years of raising a family of 5 with pets.  The home sellers knew they had to do something to be competitive in thier marketplace, so they chose to stage the whole house.  After the home staging consultation, they worked extremely hard to get everything in show ready condition before the actual staging took place.  While the carpet runner added some warmth,  it was not in the best condition.  I advised taking it off, and having the hardwood floors re-varnished, with fresh paint on the walls and stairway balisters.  ...

A new cell pone ban in the West U area of Houston passed earlier this spring. It is in effect as of August 1st 2008. The ban is against all cell phone use by drivers within 3 blocks of a West U school zone during school hours. This ban is unique in that it specifically INCLUDES hands free devices and text messaging. The ban was put into place in an effort to protect school children from distracted drivers. Enforcement of the fine begins as of August 25th, 2008. First offenses may receive a warning or a $200 fine. Second offenses will be subject to a $500 fine. "The real problem is attentiveness," Mayor Bob Kelly said. "Hands take longer to get to the wheel when you're on the phone."

 In addition to the city of Bellaire I also recommend the city of West University Place or " West U" as many of us Texans like call it.  This area really gives the the small town feel as you enter the center of the city.  I mostly recommend the area for families and older adults because the towns not flooded with cars and the community likes to keep it that way.  If you are fond of restored homes you can also find some of the most beautiful and expensive ones located in the Pemberton area.  Real estate is hot here and the prices are high.

  West University Place- often called West University or West U for short, is a city located in the heart of the Houston metropolitan area, you’ll find tree lined streets, fabulous homes, and safe neighborhoods. It offers the perfect combination of quiet, small town America, with the convenience of big city attractions. The city was developed in 1917 by Ben Hooper, a former Tennessee governor. The name "West University Place" originated from its proximity to Rice Institute (now Rice University). The city incorporated in 1924 because Houston was reluctant to extend power lines that far from the city center. The "West U Downtown" is a small strip of businesses in the heart of West University Place. Subdivisions inside West University Place include Rice Court, Pemberton, Colonial Terrace, ...
