The Woodlands Team Agents have relocated many families in recent years. Clients from a wide variety of businesses have relocated to the Woodlands. We are well versed in the requirements of Relocation Counselors and Private Companies. We work with companies and people from around the country and the world. Our agents are up to date on the latest technology, especially the Internet and the use of computers to aid in the search for the right home.  They themselves have made interstate and international moves, so they know how to fully utilize the limited time available on their clients’ buying trip to The Woodlands.

Many times our clients have asked us what the procedure is for “getting us added to their relocation company’s list”. That’s easy! Please give our contact information to your counselor and call us to share your counselor’s information. We make contact and are usually approved immediately. There are so many counselors that it is impossible to be on each and every one’s “list”. Their job is to ensure that you will be represented by an experienced Realtor who is trained in working with relocation families. Give us a call for more details!

The Woodlands Experience

It's All About The Community

 

Community and convenience play important roles in The Woodlands experience. Each village setting includes easy access to wonderful parks, playgrounds, schools, religious congregations and shopping. Trails and pathways connect many of the amenities found in the villages nestled among beautiful homes and towering trees. To experience village life in The Woodlands, take a drive through the residential neighborhoods on a sunny afternoon. You’ll see families cycling along the bike trails or walking their dogs, shopping at the local village center, picnicking and kite flying at the neighborhood park. There’s a pleasant flurry of activity that evokes a friendly, welcoming place. No matter what the day brings, chances are you’ll only have to travel 10-15 minutes in any given direction to buy a birthday gift, go to a worship service, pick up your dry cleaning, or visit a friend and her new baby at the hospital. It’s about convenience, and so much more. It’s about community.

The Woodlands Mall

 

The Woodlands Mall combines urban sophistication with small-town charm, offering an impressive array of shopping, dining and entertainment at the heart of a scenic, forested community less than 30 minutes from Houston.

 

The Mall features 180 stores including Barnes & Noble, Williams-Sonoma, Anthropologie, Sephora, Coach, Chico’s, Apple Store, Disney, Sony Style & more. From a quick bite in the food court to fine dining at Fleming’s or the extensive menu at Cheesecake Factory, there are dining options for every taste at The Woodlands Mall.

Market Street

 

I and many of the residents of The Woodlands love to go to Market Street, it is just so nice to have this close at hand. A great place to meet friends for a lunch or dinner with several really nice restaurants there. I like to go to watch a movie with some friends and then go over to Tommy Bahamas for dinner on the Veranda. A great night out for a special treat is spending the evening at Jaspers and then walking around the specialty shops and boutiques. The best thing about living in The Woodlands is you never run out of things to do. Located across the street from The Woodlands Mall, Market Street is bounded by Lake Woodlands Drive, Lake Robbins Drive, Grogan’s Mill Road and Six Pines Drive. Five minutes from the freeway, Market Street attracts visitors from all over the area to stroll along. It often has a vacation feel to the area as you are sitting in the restaurants.

 

Town Center & Waterway

 

Town Center brings the urban life style to The Woodlands. Town homes, businesses, water front condos and apartments are within walking distance of shops, theaters, movies and restaurants. This is living where you do not have to bring the car out after you have come home from work and parked it in your garage. You can just walk down the road to the restaurant or the grocery store for the best of city life in a master planned community called The Woodlands.

 

Fountains at Waterway Square is a one-acre public plaza with unique water features and green spaces that serve as the “centerpiece” of The Woodlands. Fountains, lights and music in synchronized choreography will amaze all ages that enjoy the sights of this electronic wonder.

Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion

 

A great place to have here in The Woodlands great entertainment and you do not have to go into Houston, just fifteen minutes to come back home. Young and old are entertained here. From rock concerts, children’s festivals and classical music, there is truly something for everyone here. Diverse, high-quality performing arts events as well as educational events can be experienced here. One year when my son was in Junior High his class went to listen to a concert by the Houston Symphony. We have enjoyed big performers like Cher perform a great show here. Watched the Houston Ballet, listened to the Houston Symphony and Carol King, so quite a mixture of lovely music and dance to make your soul sing!

 

 

Hughes Landing

 

Situated along Lake Woodlands, Hughes Landing is a 66-acre mixed-use development with a premier "lifestyle intersection” featuring a mixture of upscale eateries, popular retailers like Whole Foods Market®, entertainment venues, multiple Class A office buildings, One Lakes Edge upscale multifamily residences and an Embassy Suites by Hilton hotel for business and leisure travelers.
