May 2017 Happenings!




Hello Houston, we’re here to share with you the latest in ULR events, hot properties on the market and other hot Houston happenings here:


Beautiful, gorgeous, stunning, the list can go on and on! Located in Afton Oaks, this 4 bedroom, 4 bath is the epitome of luxury. This house comes with 2 master bedrooms, (yes you read that right) a pool, patio and a guest suite. Elegantly architected and designed, stone, tile and hardwood floors run throughout. Walk into the kitchen to find granite countertops, a breakfast bar and a gas range stove! You won’t have to worry about keeping up with maintenance, included is a gardener and pool service. House warranty is also incorporated with your lease. Amazing right?

You’ll have easy access to 610, 69 and the Galleria. You’re also a quick drive to Downtown, so you’ll be able to take in all that makes Houston so great. Museums, Astros and Rockets games, conventions at the George R. Brown Center are only a few of the many things that you can do around town! There are just so many qualities that make this home wonderful, it’s difficult to find a reason not to live here.

This month, we not only have one, but two agents who we would like to feature! The dynamic duo, AJ and Aurora Pisana!

University of Houston graduates and college sweethearts, these two joined forces 8 months ago, when AJ became part of the ULR team and soon became the definition of #relationshipgoals. Aurora, personable & loving and AJ, loyal with an impeccable memory, work hard together to give nothing but their absolute best. And while there are a million reasons to love ULR, the couple admires how much of a family the company is. They like how here at ULR we help each other grow and pick each other up, and the couple finds it “cool to be a part of a local business who’s vision aligns with ours.”

Their favorite part of Houston to show off is the beautiful and friendly community, the Heights. In their experience, clients tend to fall in love with this part of the city; it also helps that there is plenty of dining and bars to uncover.

Family oriented, AJ and Aurora enjoy spending their days off with their loved ones. They also have fun spending time at the local breweries and exploring new things to do in Houston, such as restaurants and coffee shops.
