Welcome Chris Fagan to Bamboo Realty Houston


Christopher Fagan joined the Bamboo Realty Houston office in January 2014. He brings over 13 years of real estate experience to the firm including property management and rental search services. His areas of expertise include the Energy Corridor, Cinco Ranch, West Memorial, the booming Westchase District as well as Katy, TX.

Most recently Christopher was with another local firm, Apartment Search, where he was the top producing agent in 2011, 2012 and 2013. During that time he was promoted to office manager and assigned to recruit and train new agents for the firm.

Along with real estate experience, Christopher also spent five years in Iraq where he oversaw troop morale and recreation. For example he coordinated weekly tournaments for pool, video gaming, sports, etc. so the troops could "find a piece of home and enjoyment" even while overseas.

When not hard at work, you will find Christopher at home enjoying time with his wife and two young children. He is a big movie buff and rarely does a day go by where he doesn't sneak movie quotes into casual conversation.

Welcome Christopher!


Merry Everything!

Hardhat Tour of 5250 - New Galleria High Rise

Last week David and I had the awesome pleasure of touring the newest high rise in the Galleria, 5250 Apartments located on Brownway near the intersection of Westheimer and Sage. We met with Natalie Swindal, the general manager of the building for the guided tour. As the first real estate company invited in for the preview tour, we had to don hardhats as we surfed our way through construction dust and piles of sheet rock. Once we reached the top floor and the elevator opened, we knew right away why the hard hats were required!
