Find Your New Home While Enjoying FREE Family-Friendly Events all April Long!

We are proud to partner with Johnson Development for Houston's largest area home tour this April.

Buying {and looking} for a new home is such a process, am I right? When we found our home, we started the search looking for something completely different from what we ended up with and it took FOREVER to find the right home for us. Also, it was super boring for our kiddos. They have zero interest in seeing a layout of this house or that house and could. not. care. less about the size of a patio or a kitchen island {things that are major “wants” on my list}. They just want to have FUN and a pink bedroom. 

Thankfully Johnson Development knows this and has planned Houston’s Largest Home Tour mixed with fun, family events around town, highlighting their model homes in 13 amazing Houston-area communities, primed and ready for your family to live and flourish. This April join Johnson Development and tour the hundreds of homes they have built in different neighborhoods around Houston, including more than 150 professionally decorated models. You can also plan to join in on the 20+ events happening at these quality communities where you can indulge in free crawfish, shop farmers markets, hunt for Easter eggs and try Pilates with puppies. Your Instagram followers will be excited to see the pictures you take at the pop-up art installations. These communities are life-style focused homes that will be perfect for your family. 

Join in the fun every day in April!! The model homes will be open Mondays – Saturdays 10:00 am – 6:00 pm and on Sundays from 12:00 pm – 6:00 pm with free admission.

Jennifer is a native outside-the-loop’er growing up and living in the Richmond/Rosenberg area. She has a Bachelors in theology and political science from Texas Lutheran University and a Masters in Liberal Arts from Texas Christian University. She and her husband Greg met in 2010 through and fell in love on their first date. They married exactly one year later and have fought lovingly and constantly since. They have two amazingly brilliant girls, Kaitlyn {June 2013} and Elizabeth {June 2015} who Jen stays home with during the day. When Jen is not curled in a little ball rocking back and forth with Peppa Pig on in the background, she can be found crafting with her Silhouette and/or binge watching The Office for the millionth time. Jen has an uncanny ability to be comfortable in almost any situation put in front of her, thanks to growing up in politics and on the debate team. Before having kids of her own, she had the opportunity to help other kids through teaching, youth ministry, and generally being a helpful, kind soul.
