CROSBY – A bit of Crosby history will retire this month, as Don Cox of Century 21 Life Savers Realty company says, “Hello Crosby – Goodbye Crosby.”
On August 23, 1972, Don Cox sold 5 lots on opening day in Newport. His brother, Audie Cox, was the Sales Manager at that time and told him he put all 5 of Don’s sales on top to be processed first.
Don told the newspaper, “I worked for Diamondhead Corporation part-time while teaching school in Pasadena. I loved the area and sales so much that I moved to Crosby in 1974 and made this my permanent home. Diamondhead Corporation had a change in management and I was terminated in 1975, so I opened my own company with Ed Ping called Lake Houston Real Estate in 1976. Things didn’t work out with Ed, so I bought Ed out and in 1978 I bought a Century 21 Franchise and named it Life Changers, Inc. Now I have sold the two-story white house that I rebuilt in 1996 and have terminated my Franchise. I will still help my previous clients and their friends.
