Hudgins-Groover Real Estate is a real estate appraisal and real estate brokerage firm. The principals are Richard T. (Dick) Hudgins, MAI, and Mike Groover, IFAS. Hudgins-Groover began as a real estate agency in 1979, which brokered commercial properties, farms, ranches, and residential properties.  Shortly thereafter, Hudgins-Groover began investing in development projects which included residential subdivisions, townhouses, apartments, and commercial sites. An investment group, Hudgro, Inc., was also organized by the principals to buy properties at Trustee's Sales in Wharton, Harris, Fort Bend, and Matagorda Counties. The partnership, known as Hudgins-Groover Appraisal, began performing real estate appraisals in the early 1980's as a result of client confidence in their experience as real estate professionals. They have since advanced their real estate appraisal expertise with professional training and education with Richard Hudgins obtaining the MAI appraisal designation and Mike Groover obtaining the IFAS appraisal designation. During the Spring of 1998, Hudgins-Groover Real Estate was established to expand their real estate services to again include the brokerage of residential, farm & ranch, and commercial properties.  Linda Baca, an experienced licensed real estate agent who has a reputation as a top producer, joined Hudgins-Groover in May 1998.  The Houston Association of Realtors recognized Linda as the "Number Five" realtor in the entire Houston Area during the 3rd Quarter of 2007.  During 2007 alone, Hudgins-Groover Real Estate has closed over $9,000,000 worth of property. In December 2002, Hudgins-Groover welcomed Greg Lapham as a staff appraiser.  Greg has since become a State Certified General Real Estate Appraiser and a licensed Real Estate Broker in Texas.  In November 2007, Tracy Braden joined Hudgins-Groover as a staff appraiser.  Tracy is a State Certified Residential Real Estate Appraiser. Our office building is located at 120 N. Richmond Road in Wharton, Texas.   We hope that you will stop by and meet our staff!
