Houston, Texas - A Thriving Business Hub

Houston, Texas is a thriving business hub for multi-national companies, with a diverse population base and a correspondingly wide selection of lifestyle options and locations.  The Houston metropolitan area stretches from the inner-Loop 610 area, including downtown, north to The Woodlands, east to Kingwood and Atascocita, south to Galveston, southwest to Sugar Land, and west to Katy.  Each of these areas offers neighborhoods with homes in a variety of prices and styles, and a qualified Realtor® should guide relocating buyers to the community that best suits their needs.


The inner-Loop 610 area is a mix of luxury neighborhoods, historic homes, cutting-edge lofts, and gated patio home enclaves.  Downtown offers first class theater, opera, symphony, ballet, traveling Broadway shows, and restaurants.  The Woodlands is one of Houston’s first and most successful master planned communities, built around championship golf courses and luxury country clubs.  Kingwood is another master planned community with excellent golf and country club availability, and both Kingwood and the Atascocita enjoy proximity to beautiful Lake Houston.


Galveston, only 60 miles from downtown Houston, offers a wonderful opportunity for a primary or vacation home on the beach, along the canals or in one of the nationally recognized historic districts.  Sugar Land, 15 minutes from the famed Galleria, is a stand-alone city with numerous master planned communities and abundant lakes, golf courses and country clubs.


Much of Houston’s growth is channeled west of the city, from the Galleria area and its world-class shopping and restaurants, through the secluded incorporated Memorial Villages, out to the suburban city of Katy, about 50 miles.
