One of our favorite places to view Christmas Lights in Northwest Houston is in the Prestonwood Forest subdivision. Known as the “Christmas Lights Neighborhood”, its continuation of a 30+ year tradition has become legendary.
Local newspapers and television stations, Southern Living, FOX News, and the Travel Channel have all written stories about or done programs on the Christmas lights adorning the Prestonwood Forest homes.
Just about every home in the Prestonwood Forest subdivision of 750 homes gets involved in the Nite of Lights event. With almost every block in the subdivision choosing a different holiday theme. One of the themes is based on “The Night Before Christmas” in which each home on the block displays a page of the story.
The subdivision hands out awards for “Best House”, “Best Block”, “Runner-up Block”, “Best Mailbox”, “Best Door”, and “Best Lamp Post”
Estimations are around 15,000 people drive through Prestonwood Forest and view the Christmas decorations and lights display during the Nite of Lites event. The 2008 Nite of Lites begins on December 13th and continues through January 3rd. The homes lights are on Monday – Friday 6 pm to 10 pm and Saturday – Sunday 6 pm to 11 pm. The Prestonwood Forest subdivision is located South of Cypresswood about 2 miles East of HWY 249.
The residents of Prestonwood Forest take their NIte of Lites event serious. So serious ….. that included in the sale of the homes are the homes Christmas decorations.

She took us through the process which we thought was daunting and at times frustrating. With her excellent local knowledge (including the area, the builder, the market, local school and tax system to name a few) and experience with building a new home (each steps that need to happen and what to look out for), we were able to find a place quickly and go through the building process smoothly. With the ability to grasp our needs and interests fairly quickly, Jill demonstrated strong representation of our interests, including negotiations on our behalf and recommending additional steps which builders would not typically do. Jill had a strong focus on customer service, not only being responsive and answering every questions in detail, but also proactively go extra miles to help us at every step along the way, including alerting us the things we need to do and watch for, helping us out in the design selection process (which very few agents would do) , walking us through the paper works and highlighting issues. It was our pleasure to know Jill and work with her in our new chapter of life. We are very happy with her excellent work and would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone. read less
