  1. Well if you can settle for a town home, there are tons south of i-10 zoned to MHS in a great community called Ethans Glen. The address is anything off of Litchfield. You can even go for bigger in a gated community called Woodstone. The address for Woodstone is 201 Vanderpool
  2. Ive had a few friends live here over the years. It is a GREAT place for the price! Let me repeat, for the price. Maybe a little light on the Yuppie clientele but you can't beat the location (if you work in the Energy Corridor), the schools (you can apply to SBISD from here), and the park (Terry Hershey is at your front door!!!). I've noticed over the years though, that the units are changing hands and much updating is being done by the previous or new landlords, so prices may be rising. But due to its location and proximity to local amenities (walking distance to the new Kendall branch library now) I can't see why more people don't live here.
  3. Wow. That is by far the ugliest thing I have ever seen. It nearly compares to our Federal Reserve building
  4. Thanks guys. It looks like I have to go to the appraisal district for in the info
  5. I also posted this in the North Houston forum: I researched and my cousin owns 22 acres in Shannon Owen in North Houston. Since he is no longer with us, I am tasked with finding this place. Yet the Montgomery County Appraisal District only gives me the Lot and Section numbers - no map or address. Is there another way I can find this property? Legal Description: A0036 SHANNON OWEN, TRACT 24 PT, 39, ACRES 21.970 Acreage: 21.970 Cross Reference:0036-00-02400

  7. I was in the same league as you. I was searching for a position from Spring 2007 to early this year. I graduated with a degree in Finance - so we're basically in the same boat of difficulty. I found the most apt way to get an interview is to call a firm asking for an 'informational interview.' This is just going to a firm and selling yourself without an underlying job available. The reasoning behind this is so that when the market picks back up again you're a face rather than just a piece of paper. To get an interview or these informational interviews, you cannot just call up the firm but have to get an email or contact phone of the person you want to talk to. Say you dont know anyone at the firm (I didnt - Im 24, my main business contacts are still in college. haha), google them. In my case, I was searching for an energy trading position, so I would google 'head of power trading BP houston.' No matter what the search will result in an email of a person to where you can send your resume. Also dont be fearful of sending your resume to personal emails because the guys love it. They love initiative. Also from this person may belong to a group, board, or went a conference one time where he/she had to give out their contact info, so in addition google the person and a whole bunch of other names will come up. In my case, the emails and numbers for everyone at an NERG conference came up. I just took the list and emailed them all. I have a job because of this. I have a job because I wasn't sitting on my ass trolling Careerbuilder all day. So start hustlin' Also, in addition, contact a recruiter. Robert Half, Donnovan Watkins, Manhattan Resources, and Mackey & Tanner are few in town. There is one other recruiter who is incredible but PM me if you want that one. If RE isn't fitting start using the analytics of your Finance and Economic backgrounds - search in the Med Center, Energy, Financials, etc for Analytic positions (titles such as Research, Market, Financial, Investment, and Equity Analyst). If all else fails State Farm is always looking for insurance salesmen.
  8. Actually the Hwy 6 one already as 2-3 anchor stores. Both ends are filled by an Ensalata and North China restaurant. I believe a Subway is there as well. The one near Chimney Rock (by the Fox Hall apartments) is completely vacant.
  9. Please tell me this is an April Fools joke! hahaha James Bond in Black Gold or Hubbert's Peak...I can just see Bond's villianese or girlfriend with a name like Jamie Drills or Ivanna Pump.
  10. hey bring on massive debt. Another 18 bil on top of the 820 bil is not that much. I assume government spending seeing how no private company can run a commuter train in the US. UST accepts public funds. But I was only using UST as an example for how higher education is a form of infrastructure. The universal 'we' is perhaps best used to describe someone (me) who does not know the semantics or politicking it takes to build rail. So we should focus on Houston/Galveston before we should undertake a project as costly as an intermediate form of travel..high speed rail. Also you cant have high speed service in the US because in early 70s a law was enacted to cap train speeds at 69 mph. Reverse the law then we may begin talk about high speed. Finally do not make asinine remarks about posts. Its unbecoming of the forum.
  11. There is already a train that does 70 every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday that goes to San Antonio. Doesnt the other train that does 70 start in Lufkin or something and goes to Dallas? Flight is cheaper and easier. Use $18 billion to fix city infrastructure problems. Rail in Houston. Rail to Galveston. Maybe blanket high speed wireless internet? Maybe more funding for UH and UST schools. Tuition credits? Tax breaks? If we were given $18 billion is it best spent on high speed rail? What is so wrong with a bus?
  12. wow. no wonder they didnt want to sell any of this land to St Thomas. that is awful for the University
  13. http://www.hcad.org/iMaps/Tiles/Color/4658D7.pdf If the development is to the east of Enterprise then the land is owned by Fleetwood Church of Christ (15935 Katy Freeway)
  14. if you want great gumbo (seafood n reg) the best place I have EVER had it is in the Chronicle building downtown. they only serve the gumbo on Wednesday afternoons and always a line out the door. I guess most dont know about it but its amazing! try that and their cornbread and youll be in heaven.
