Comment of the Day: The Virginians Are Coming!

COMMENT OF THE DAY: THE VIRGINIANS ARE COMING! ” . . . the article doesn’t say they are not moving people from other areas of the country. It says they have not decided. I have personally seen internal memos that tell their employees they are consolidating Houston campuses before they consider moving other offices around the country to this campus and that it would be 2015 before that would happen. I don’t think it is a stretch to read into this that they will be moving other areas of the country to this campus. As a Realtor I can tell you that people from their Fairfax campus have already begun buying homes in The Woodlands … somebody is pretty confident of being moved if they are doing that. I’m guessing they’re trying to avoid employees in those areas leaving (rather than move) before XOM is ready for them to.” [David Hageman, commenting on Welcome to the Land of ExxonMobil: A Tour of the Company’s New North Houston Campus]

  • We can’t wait for them to come! My interior design studio doors are open right here in The Woodlands.

    It looks like it will be a beautiful facility and such a boon to our local economy.

  • Something tells me the number of Realtors in The Woodlands is about to significantly increase.

  • They should adjust well since Fairfax County is the Montgomery County of metro DC (not to be confused with the Montgomery County in suburban Maryland).

  • Matt, add interior decorators to your list.

  • The smart ones won’t live in The Woodlands.

    Just like the smart ones never lived in the Compaq slums (Champions).
