Why Relocate To Katy Texas?

 
When Bob and Yolanda Gilbert decided to move to Katy Texas  they set as top priorities for themselves  items such as  schools, safety, medical facilities, and a great place to bring up children! ...They settled on working in the South Katy area (The Katy area south of I-10).
 
From the award winning KatyISD school district, to the tremendous value in luxury homes in great family subdivisions  like Cinco Ranch, Grand Lakes, Seven Meadows, Churchill Farms, Silver Ranch,Green Trails, Kelliwood, Nottingham, Cardiff Ranch, Windsor Park, Cross Creek Ranch, and Falcon Ranch, to world class hospitals and medical facilities  that have the Katy area being dubbed "Med Center West" ...  Bob realized they had found the perfect place for their clients to raise a family...and for their clients parents to enjoy the Grandchildren! Katy  boasts great Active Senior options like Heritage Grand (a 55+ section of Cinco Ranch) and The Solana at Cinco Ranch, wonderful family amenities like parks, playgrounds, golf courses, lakes, fishing, boating, nature walks, and short drives to the beach and Hill Country....the Katy area is a great place to enjoy the weekend.
 
Simply put Katy has it all!

Let Bob do an "Area Tour" with you and show you why they feel Katy is the best place in the Houston area to live, work. and play! You will see schools, great luxury family subdivisions, shopping facilities, highway options, and wonderful restaurants!


 Subdivision and Master Planned Community Info:

 

 

Grand Lakes: Grand Lakes is a large Master Planned Community that is well located near the new Westpark Tollway for easy downtown commute. It has a very beautiful natural feel and is loaded with pools, parks, lakes, a putting green, and many walking trails! See additional information about this wonderful neighborhood by clicking here. 

  

 

 

Cinco Ranch: Cinco Ranch is a Master Planned Community in the Katy area south of I-10. It is the largest subdivision in Katy and has the largest number of amenities for the benefit of its residents. Pools, water parks, aman made beach, boating, fishing, parks, open space and a nature trail all await the residents of Cinco Ranch...it is one of the top rated communities in the United States! Cinco Ranch is always one of the fastest growing Master Planned Communities in the United States. More detailed information is available by going to here. 

 

Cross Creek Ranch: Cross Creek Ranch is the newest Master Planned Community in the Katy area but is quickly catching on with those looking for a little slower pace...While still having lots of amenities and wonderful school options. Developed by the same people who brought us Grand Lakes, Cross Creek Ranch has a wide variety of homes and prices. This community is an easy commute to I-10 and the Westpark Tollway. Cross Creek ranch is grwoing very quickly and folks realize it is not too far out away from everything else in Katy. If you desire more information click this word

 

Kelliwood:  Kelliwood is a beautiful group of subdivisions off S. Fry Rd. A wide range of homes and home prices can be found here. From Custom Gated sections like LakeForest that are comprised of all estate homes...to smaller patio homes that border the Willow Fork Country Club. The short commute times appeal to a wide range of buyers!

 

Green Trails: Green Trails is a large Master Planned Community that borders I-10, S. Fry Rd, and Baker Rd. It is full of amenities for the family, is close to I-10 and the Houston Energy Corridor, and has a variety of styles and price ranges from small one story homes up to Custom Estates...no matter what you are looking for it will be easy for you to carve out your slice of Green Trails!

 

Seven Meadows: Seven Meadows is a Master Planned Community that was developed by the same people who put Cinco Ranch on the map! It is located right off HWY 99 (the Grand Parkway) with short commutes to both I-10 and the Westpark Tollway. Pools, parks, a movie theater, work out facilities, and nature trails are all part of this great community. Seven Maedows similar to Grand Lkaes does not have any new build homes as the neighborhood is completely built out. I like Seven meadows for many reasons and see other aspects by going to this blog post. 

 

Silver Ranch: A fairly new master planned community located in area that some folks believe is the best part of all of Katy. Silver Ranch is only a short drive away from Katy Mills Mall and is located in the highly acclaimed Katy Independent School District. The community is  approximately 3 miles from both I-10 and the Westpark Tollway. Lavish homes ranging from the $140's to $300's make the community very affordable for growing famililies or empty nesters. Silver Ranch is conveniently located for access to major employers in the energy corridor and has easy entree to South West Houston, Sugarland, West Park Tollway along with numerous park and ride bus lots that have express service to downtown Houston.

When this community is completed it will be home to about 1,500 families. Amenities include Six Lane Jr Olympic Pool , Stone Grill Children's Splash Pad, Tennis Court, Playground and Swing Set, Outdoor BBQ Pavilion and numerous Walking Trails.

 

Churchill Farms: New community that opened January 2012. There are excellent homes available from the two builders being Beazer and Taylor Morrison.  Churchill Farms will not be a huge community when completed and it has come a long way in short period of time this year. See my blog post from last year

There are numerous other neighborhoods scattered over the physicially large geaographic area which all has a Katy mailing address. If a neighborhood is not listed and you want some information call me.
