At Country Club Lifestyle Realty and Holub Realty and Property Managment, Inc. each year we sell or lease over 30 single family homes and flip over 15 foreclosures for investors. We currently manage over 100 homes within Southwest Houston. We are specialists in Investing, Renovating, Foreclosure Flips, and Property Management. Every home purchase is more than just a home, it's an investment utilizing hundreds of thousands of dollars. We are financial experts in real estate that provide financial opinions on your purchase or listing. We want every home owner to make money, not just buy or sell a home.
Our contractors are available to every client. That "perfect" home may require a kitchen remodel, wood floors, an updated master bathroom. With Country Club Lifestyle Realty our contractors and their availability to wholesale pricing is available to you!
Houston is full of homes listed on MLS that need updates to maximize their sale value and price. However most owners and buyers are concerned about spending money without receiving a good return on that investment. If a home owner could spend $2500 and obtain a $6000 increase in the sales price then why not perform that small update? Our expertise with renovations and flips gives us the insite the average Realtor lacks.
In addition, at Country Club Lifestyle Realty, we're more than real estate professionals. We have spent our entire lives playing both golf and tennis at clubs throughout Texas and are fully integrated into the golf and tennis communities in Houston. As former tennis pros, we know the pros and leagues in the Sugar Land and Southwest Houston areas. Whether you play competitively or just want a comfortable social atmosphere, we can help.
