Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: As an architectural history buff, I enjoy visiting locations which maintain their historic cultural buildings. I have been in property management & investment for many years in the Montrose area. All of my rental properties are historic buildings located in historic neighborhoods. An avid traveler, having traveled throughout the world.

Why the Owner Chose Montrose, Houston, TX, USA:
I had no idea that I would own this historic property when I first heard about it. A friend of mine had owned the buildings a number of years ago and sold it while giving a mortgage on it. My friend, the past owner, called me one day in 1998 and said he was having to foreclose on the building because the new owner was not making payments. My friend wanted me to purchase the apartments and I told him I already had enough real estate but that I owned a company that managed and also sold real estate and I would be glad to do that. He agreed. On the first day I could enter the apartments I was surprised to find them so large and they seemed to have most things that tenants want. I called my friend the next day and worked out a deal to purchase them.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The benefits to this property are the location and the historic quality of the property. It is located just southwest of downtown Houston and just north of the Texas Medical Center with the Museum District close as is Herman Park and the zoo. The apartment building was built about 100 years ago and I have lovingly restored it, it has the grace and charm of yesteryear with the technology updates like a very fast WiFi, large flat screen TV's in each bedroom and the living/dining room.
