Brooke Smith is on the eastern edge of Greater Heights, generally between Northwood and I-45. This area has some of the coolest Craftsman bungalows (the predominant style) of the Heights, as well as older Victorians. See my Interactive Heights Map for location.
As I have mentioned many times before, this area is now booming in home remodels and new construction homes. You can get beautifully remodeled 3/2’s for mid $500’s. See the table below.
The new homes here, like the rest of the Heights are getting bigger. There are occasionally new bungalows, but most are now 2-story. See my recent post on Brooke Smith New Home Prices.
The table below gives prices and price ranges for current remodeled homes in Brooke Smith and shows sales prices for homes sold since last July.
Land prices are cheaper here than nearby Houston Heights, Woodland Heights, etc., so prices are more reasonable.

Don’t try to use this table as any kind of pricing guide. There are too many variables that go into pricing a home, so use it to compare neighborhoods or to where a particular home fits into the range.
- Location within neighborhood. I.e condition of surrounding homes; how close to commercial streets.
- Condition and extent of remodeling. Some homes are nicely remodeled, others are stunningly remodeled.
- Style of home. Buyers love old Craftsman style homes and Victorians. There are occasionally some boxy little remodeled homes that just don’t have the curb appeal.
Below are a couple of recently remodeled homes in this part of the Heights. Details of them can be found on the attached list further down.
The map below shows current homes active on the market (green), pending homes (orange) and homes sold since last July (red).
Note the little pocket of homes SW of N Main St. These are in Brooke Smith subdivision, but are generally zoned to Travis Elementary. You normally have to live in pricier Woodland Heights to go to popular Travis Elementary.
The numbers on the map correspond to the pdf list of homes attached.
