"We were moving from Virginia, and Houston Properties kept in touch with us for almost a year until we were ready to relocate. They guided us through the entire process and were very kind, friendly, and knowledgeable. The sellers' market made the home buying process very stressful for us, but they were able to manage that and keep us focused on finding a home we would love. The team was always quick to respond to my numerous emails and texts and sent us daily updates regarding new homes coming on the market. When things could have fallen apart after appraisal, they helped us to negotiate with the seller. Words or the 5-star rating cannot really express the wonderful experience we received from them. We would 100% recommend Houston Properties for your home buying or selling needs!" - Yolanda Hicks (Google Review)

Katy Southwest's history is tied to the Greater Katy Area History.

In the mid-1800s, Katy was called Cane Island. A land grant for James J. Crawford included Cane Island during this period.

The area only had four residents three decades after the land grant.

The Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad brought rapid and unprecedented growth to the area. In 1895, the area caught James Oliver Thomas's sight where he laid out development plans.

Katy got its name from the KT moniker of the MKT (now part of Union Pacific) railroad. As the train opened access to the area, families move in during the 1900s. These pioneering families established farms and ranches.

Katy became a municipality in 1945. It had a city council and a mayor.
