It’s exciting that we’ve entered into a new year! I hope you all had a great holiday season and are enjoying the first few days of 2013. As a Katy TX Real Estate agent, I love to reflect back on the past year and all that took place. One of the things that I’m truly thankful for as I look back is something that I know will always be a highlight of the year is the chance to live in a place like Katy TX!
For those of you who’ve grown up in Katy or who have lived here for even just a year, you’re well aware of the excellent quality of life that Katy has to offer. If you’re visiting this site to learn more about Katy TX in hopes of making it your new home; I’d like to welcome you and let you know you’re in for a treat!
Buying a home in Katy is something many have looked forward to since the first settlers came to Katy in the mid-1800’s. At the time, there was nothing more to Katy than a large prairie with roaming buffalo, cattle and deer. In fact, when the settlers first arrived, they called the area Cane Island named for the cane-break filled creek that still runs through it today. However, by the time the railroad came through in 1895, people had begun calling the area Katy and by 1898 with the addition of the train depot; Katy TX was a flourishing city that drew many to build their American dream on its’ land.
Katy is rich in historic charm, and if you’d like to learn more about Katy and its history; I’d encourage you to take part in the Historic Homes tour! Of course, as a Katy Real Estate agent, I’m drawn towards the beautiful homes that are throughout Katy and the Historic Homes Tour is a really fantastic way to see some of the gems of Katy. Here are a few more details!
