Let’s face it. We must learn to live with
While we couldn’t be prouder of Houston’s resilience nor more grateful for 2018’s positive real estate headlines, Harvey was a disruption we intend to heed. Seriously. We have a real opportunity to do differently for our beloved bayou city.
Many of us saw first-hand the devastation of Harvey. These tragic stories have inspired me to do everything in my ability to mitigate the impact of future flooding on you, your friends, and your neighborhood. Whether you’re a Realtor, builder, developer, elected official, or property owner, business as usual is simply not an option. It would take our resilience, innovative spirit, and best minds around this subject for granted. Beyond that, it would be an insult to all those affected.
Flooding will happen again. My associates and I at Boulevard Realty have a fiduciary responsibility to you to take that very seriously. I believe it’s possible to have urban flooding without urban devastation.
My job as your Realtor is to study and make sense of it all, to be an active part of the discussion on your behalf, and to educate you. I’ve become flood-literate so that I can translate it all for you before the next, possibly worse, flood. Being in the 100-year floodplain doesn’t mean a home will flood every 100 years. That really means that in the life of its 30-year mortgage there is a 26% chance of it flooding. If you don’t get that, that’s okay—because I do.
How can I help you make sense of it all?
