Directions: The Northwest Houston Office is located at 13201 Northwest Freeway at Hollister, just inside Beltway 8 - Sam Houston Tollway a little ways past the I-610 Loop. Take 610 to U.S. 290 the Northwest Freeway and take the Tidwell - Hollister exit. Take a left going underneath the freeway before the traffic light. The "13201" building is on your right, at the corner with a big Wells Fargo sign on it. There is plenty of free parking in the front. Take the elevator to the eighth floor and we are in Suite 800 on your right in fact when you exit the elevator you are already there. If you are coming from the Northline Mall, Houston Heights, North Sheperd, Garden Oaks, Timbergrove Manor, Independence Heights, Acres Homes, Downtown Houston, Humble, Aldine, IAH Bush Intercontinental Airport, or Fall Creek, get on 610 Westbound.
Driving from the Galleria, Sharpstown, Alief, Missouri City, Sugar Land, Meadows Place, Stafford, Richmond, Fort Bend County, or Rosenberg, take US 59 Northbound to 610 Northbound. Watch for rush hour traffic around the Galleria. This is usually a pretty quick route.
If coming from Memorial City, Spring Branch, Spring Valley, Memorial Villages, Katy, West Houston, or West Harris County, take I-10 Eastbound to I-610 Northbound. This is usually a pretty smooth route but if it gets bad you can take Long Point to Hempstead Highway as an alternate.
Going from River Oaks, Montrose, the Museum District, Midtwon, the Medical Center, West Univeristy, Bellaire, Astrodome, Beechnut, or Braeswood, take I-610 Northbound. Getting to I-610 can be accomplished by taking San Felipe or Westpark if appropriate even if it is busy around town.
If you are coming all the way from Pasadena, LaPorte, Deer Park, HOU Hobby Airport, Clear Lake, Pearland, Friendswood, or Sagemont, I would recommend taking 610 around the east and north side because it is quicker and tends to have less traffic. Because of the freeway location it is easy to get here from all these areas. If you feel like you live too far away try a telephone appointment.
