Nan and Company Properties is proud to announce their 2017 Top Producers Club! 

We love to support our #nanfam in any way we can, and one of the many ways we do so is through our Top Producers Club. It serves as a great way for us to celebrate and recognize our agents’ success. Our Top Producers Club was created to not only reward our family of hardworking agents but to encourage them to always strive to do their best when helping clients find their dream home. 

To be qualified for the Top Producers Club, agents must have reached a certain minimum of gross commission over the course of the year. Often times, agents even go above and beyond!

On that note, we would like to wish a huge congratulations to this year's inductees: Albert Cantu,

It has finally happened. For the first time in the franchise history, our Houston Astros have won the World Series! We can still hardly believe it's true!

In one of the most evenly matched and exciting World Series of all time, it seemed fitting that fans were treated to a winner-takes-all Game 7. In the end, it was Houston who clinched the title, defeating the Dodgers 5-1 in Game 7 at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles. 

The motto "Earn History" has never felt more appropriate.

To mark this momentous occasion, Governor Greg Abbott has proclaimed November 3rd as Houston Astros Day, which happened to be the day of the team's World Series victory parade. Held in Downtown Houston, the city shut down with hopes of celebrating with family, friends,
