In 1956 Glenbrook Valley was just hitting its stride. The Parade of Homes had singled out the residential area, exclusively featuring Glenbrook Valley for all 30 homes on their annual tour. The development had previously been included in a citywide Parade of Homes in 1954, but not for the entire event.
Nestled along Sims Bayou between I45 and Telephone Rd., Glenbrook Valley originally opened in 1953 with a lot of fanfare. It was designed by the renowned Kansas City landscape architecture firm Hare and Hare, which was known for many Houston layouts, including River Oaks. The subdivision also received a lot of interest when Better Homes and Gardens featured 7923 Glenview on the September 1954 cover for an article titled “The Home for All America” and was the…

With the state of the current housing market, it may prove to be a good investment to keep your current house rather than selling it when you buy the next one. A second home can be a source of revenue if you are smart about how you manage it.

Do doctors watch Trauma: Life in the ER after doctoring all day?
That's what Realtor Chris Hiller wanted to know when I asked him about the reality of real-estate reality shows.
