“We definitely recommend the Houston Properties Team. We were relocating to Houston from Dallas. We figure it would be difficult to look for homes being out of town; however our realtor, Brittney Coyle, made it an easy process. She was flexible and learned our style quickly. Through video chats, she would walk us through the homes like we were there, pointing out details of the homes. Brittney was very knowledgeable on the neighborhoods we were looking at. With the current market, we did go through many offers. Brittney was patient and responsive when we had questions. Brittney’s service did not end when the sale was completed. After closing on our home, she has provided recommendations for move in service, helped us get quotes for cleaners, and assist with setting up our water. It has been a delight to work Brittney.” - Gee Dee (Google Review)

Grand Lakes TX History


Grand Lakes is one of the master-planned communities within the Greater Katy area. Located in Fort Bend County, the land used to be mostly rural from the early 1900s until the 1940s.

At the time, farms and cattle ranches made up most of Greater Katy. Cinco Ranch, the master-planned community just north of Grand Lakes, used to be a working cattle farm.

Development in the areas around Grand Lakes started during the mid-1980s and continues up until today.

Grand Lakes itself was developed in phases, with the newest – Phase 4 – sitting west of Grand Parkway.

Like most of Greater Katy’s master-planned communities, Grand Lakes offers a great variety of community amenities. Residents can enjoy catch-and-release fishing or simply relax in the community’s parks.

Each phase features homes built around a central park with a network of hike-and-bike trails around the community’s lakes. The community showcases 27 lakes. Some of these lakes are stocked.

Each of Grand Lakes’ phases also features community swimming pools, splash pads, tennis courts, putting greens, pavilions, and several playgrounds. The community also has a dog park and a community garden.

Though the community is mostly residential, some areas are reserved for commercial use. These commercial areas are near S Fry Road and Grand Parkway. Other notable retail centers are mere minutes away from Grand Lakes, including the LaCenterra at Cinco Ranch.
