There is still no “official” announcement from Exxon Mobil that they are going to be moving their North American headquarters to Spring (also known as south of the Woodlands). But that hasn’t stopped everyone else from talking and speculating about Exxon Mobil’s new campus in Spring. Just ask around and you will run across someone who says she or he heard from a high ranking Exxon Mobil employee that Exxon Mobil is moving to Spring.
According to Billy Burge, the Grand Parkway President, the official announcement from Exxon Mobil confirming their campus location at 45 and the Hardy Toll Road will be delivered in April. This is what Mr. Burge told the Texas Transportation Commission at their meeting on January 27th, 2011.
At the same meeting, Commissioner Ned Holmes said
“Exxon representatives have stated very clearly to me that TxDOT moving forward on the Grand Parkway is essential and that if that did not happen they would not select this site.”
Some sources say the new headquarters will consolidate 15,000 employees from Houston and Virginia while other sources have the number of employees at 17,000. Whichever the number truly is it means a lot of employees may soon be looking for homes in Spring Texas and the Woodlands. The speculation of Exxon Mobil’s move and the positive impact it would have on housing prices has caused some would be sellers to postpone their plans. Instead they are opting to be landlords for the immediate future.
To find out if Exxon Mobil will be moving to Spring, we will all need to stay tuned and await the “official” announcement.

From the beginning she was extremely up front and honest about exactly what we would need to do to get our house sold. We had an incredibly tight timeline, that she explained would be difficult to make - but she helped us make it happen and our house sold in 2 days! She had recommendations for all our home repair needs and they were all professional and fairly priced. She worked hard to really sell our offer for our new home - she was able to pull off the tight timeline, securing a rent back from our old house so we had time to move out, and a contingency for our new home. Definitely exceeded our expectations. She was so helpful along the way - as first time home sellers we really relied on her and we feel lucky to have worked with her! You will not regret working with Jill! read less
