Showing up on another list is becoming old hat for Houston as Houston made it onto numerous lists in 2011 including the #1 spot for Job Growth in Texas Cities. The latest list Houston has found its way onto is “Top 9 places where Texas State Troopers issued the most tickets”.
According to data analyzed by Texas Watchdog’s Jennifer Peebles, the Top 9 places where Texas State Troopers issued the most tickets are:
2. Houston area. Hottest spot – Northwest Harris County. In 2011, Texas State Troopers issued 7,950 tickets within a 10 mile radius of Klein / Spring which includes parts of HWY 249 and I-45. The Good News is if you thought a Texas State Trooper was picking on you when he issued you a ticket last year, he was not.
3. Dallas area.
4. Austin area.
5. Longview area.
6. Beaumont area.
7. Corpus Christi area.
8. San Antonio area.
9. Midland area.
If you relocated to Spring Texas last year, hopefully the first person who welcomed you wasn’t a State Trooper. But if it was, don’t feel bad it sometimes happen. It happened to me when I moved to Texas back in 1992. I wasn’t more than 20 miles into Texas when a State Trooper personally welcomed me and issued me a speeding ticket to commemorate the occasion. And to make matters worse … my Mom was with me when it happened.

I've worked with agents in the past with whom I've been less than impressed, but Jill is top-notch. She is punctual, thorough, and patient. She has an almost encyclopedic knowledge of the market, the builders, the school districts, the MUDs, and the neighborhoods. For the sale of our home, Jill took us step by step through the preparations necessary to get our house ready to show: everything from rearrangement of furnishings to referrals for handymen. When we started viewing potential houses to buy, I was amazed that Jill not only knew everything about the house she was showing me, but seemed to know details regarding all the neighboring houses as well. For the closings, Jill was an extra set of eyes, ensuring that the paperwork was in order. She also made sure that the the closing was at a convenient location and took as little time as possible (less than an hour in both instances). All throughout the process, Jill remained a driving force, constantly ensuring that inspection reports were being rendered promptly or that the mortgage provider was keenly aware of the closing date; and I received a steady stream of email updates from her. I couldn't be more pleased with her, and in the event we're once again in the market for another home, she would be my first call. read less
