April 2017 Happenings! Spring has Sprung!



Houston welcomes back spring with the latest in ULR events, hot properties on the market and other hot Houston happenings here:

River Oaks Royalty

Live in in one of Houston’s most prosperous areas, River Oaks! This 2 story penthouse, is 3,468 square feet of complete luxury with 20 foot ceilings, marble floors and stunning chandeliers. With your own private terrace you can unwind and enjoy a nice glass of wine while overlooking the River Oaks neighborhood. Or you can entertain family and friends with this spacious and open layout. The only problem is, they may never want to leave!

If you feel like getting out of the house, no worries, just take a short drive to Montrose or Midtown where there are plenty of places to meet new people or hang out with old ones. Don’t feel like going too far? Take a walk to the the River Oaks Shopping Center where you’ll find plenty of restaurants, shops and night life. Maybe you just want to hang out with nature and escape reality. That’s fine, there is a ton of green space that’s near you. Buffalo Bayou is right down the road with Eleanor Tinsley Park. Or drive on down to Memorial Park where you have a golf course, trails or the Houston Arboretum & Nature Center to explore. You will never feel an ounce of boredom while living here!

This month we are excited to feature Jeremiah Gowen as the ULR Agent of the Month, which works out perfectly because his birthday is on the 7th! Happy birthday love!

Fun and outgoing, Jeremiah has been apart of the ULR family since July of 2013 and couldn’t imagine being anywhere else. This is home to him and loves everything that ULR is about and stands for.

Born in Kentucky, Jeremiah moved to Houston when he was 12, so he knows the ends and outs of Houston pretty well. His favorite part of Houston to sell to is inside the loop and near the Heights. And why wouldn’t it be? All great things are inside the loop! However, he loves to explore and learn new up and coming areas around Houston, so he’s not limited. To him, Houston is wonderful because there’s so many activities to do year round! You can spend your days at the park, brewery’s, or spend your day cheering on your favorite Houston sports team.

While he’s not conquering the real estate world, Jeremiah loves to spend his time outdoors by the pool or traveling.

Get your cleaning supplies out, because it’s that time of year! Wondering where to start? No worries, we got generated a little checklist for you. Happy Cleaning!

  • Music-because jamming your favorite tunes always makes things 10x better and more fun
  • Dishwasher-just because it cleans your dishes doesn’t mean it doesn’t need cleaning too
  • Fridge/Freezer-take this time to pull out old food that has been there for who knows how long
  • Closet-now that you don’t have to worry about the winter, you can fold up those jackets and put them away
  • Washing Machine-yes, this needs cleaning too!
  • Patio Furniture-before you start inviting company, wipe down those chairs and wash the cushions
  • Dusting-baseboards, ceiling fans, blinds, behind furniture, dust bunnies live everywhere!
  • Windows-cleaning the inside and the outside can make a huge difference
  • Fire Safety-this is a great chance to switch out old batteries with new ones
