Prestonwood Forest (A.K.A. “Christmas Lights Neighborhood”) is once again holding their “Nite of Lites” festival. A long standing tradition of over 36 years, the Nite of Lites has the residents of Prestonwood Forest going all out for the holidays as they decorate their homes to the max.
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 homes in Prestonwood Forest. This year HGTV may be added to the long list of media outlets that have produced segments on the Nite of Lites festival.
Just about every home in the Prestonwood Forest subdivision of 750 homes gets involved in the Nite of Lites 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.
Judges hand out awards for the “Best House”, “Best Block”, “Runner-up Block”, “Best Mailbox”, “Best Door”, “Best Lamp Post”, and a new category making its debut this year of “Best Culdesac”. The 2011 winners have been announced and each pin on the map represents an award winner. Start your tour of the Nite of Lites at where the gingerbread house is located on the map.

If you want a Realtor who will truly look out for your best interests, give you her honest professional input and who understands the Houston area market, she is the one. She is so knowledgeable in every aspect of purchasing/selling a home and she shares all of that information with her clients. We knew she was super busy, but she never made us feel that way. We almost felt like her only clients! She is just that good! She spends the time to get to know you and what you like and she is quick at picking it up. She will give you her honest thoughts, whether you like what she is saying or not, but you know it is honest and each time she was right! She is professional, compassionate, friendly, and definitely goes above and beyond for those she works for. I really don't think you can get better ;) We were referred to her by a friend and I will be forever thankful. She not only got us into an unbelievably beautiful home at an unbelievably good deal, she helped support us through a rough sell of a home in another state. I have so much respect for her and I think any prospective home buyer/seller would be lucky to have such a great Realtor guiding them through the process. Thank you Jill for everything you did! Especially taking care of my husband as you showed him homes :) read less
