The most eye-opening revelation in our recent interview with Van and Edmeryl Williams wasn’t that they asked $5 million to sell their East End property to Port Freeport, but it did involve a dollar figure.

Williams said the offer she received for her house, which has been in the family for generations, was not in the five-figure range — this for a home and land collectively valued at $41,150 on the 2020 Brazoria County tax rolls.
