Sip & Learn Event (2/19/14) : FREE Wine Tasting & Buying a Home in Houston

There are a lot of things that wine doesn’t go well with (driving, toothpaste, and text messaging to name a few), but one thing wine does pair nicely with is tackling a task that seems daunting, like buying a home in Houston can seem. The team at ULR got together (over a few glasses of wine) and thought “how can we take the stress out of buying a home for our clients?”. The answer was simple–open up our extensive knowledge base of home buying to them to learn about the process. To add to the fun and mix things up, we will also learning (and tasting) different types of wine throughout the event.


The event will be held at the brand new Brick & Spoon at 1312 Alabama in Montrose (we have the entire space for the evening). Guests will enjoy a 5 part wine tasting, as well as paired appetizers. We will focus on topics such as:

-Renting vs Buying?

-Hot Houston neighborhoods to buy in

-How much mortgage should I budget?

-How do I know if the house is bad shape before I buy?

Guests can freely pick not only our real estate-focused brains, but the brains of top mortgage lenders, title companies, home inspectors and insurance agents. We will also have a sommelier with us throughout the evening to sample wines and educate us different tastes and notes, as well as how to properly pair each wine with food.

Because space is limited, we kindly ask that you please RSVP with your name and the number in your party to [email protected]. This event is free to all guests, but you must be 21 years of age to participate in the wine tasting. Your reservation includes your table for the wine tasting with cheese pairing, and an exclusive gift bag.

We promise, buying a home in Houston has never been more fun!
