“My husband relocated us to Texas for a job and we have never lived here before. Selling our home and buying a home in Texas was rather stressful. Brittney, from Houston Properties was our realator and she was awesome. She searched MANY homes with us and answered our many questions to help us find the right home. She was patient, friendly and genuine. Our move here would have been more stressful I'm sure without Brittney helping us. She is a true asset and her team was wonderful as well. Always on top of things and making sure nothing was missed. We are truly greatful for all she did.” - L L (Google Review)

Kingwood TX History

In the 1900s up until the 1960s, the area now known as Kingwood was largely undeveloped. It was a sprawling, wooded tract, partly owned by the Foster family since the early 1890s. The family operated a lumber company, taking advantage of the area's lush greenery.

In 1967, a joint venture between King Ranch and the Friendswood Development Company sparked development in the area. Kingwood was named for its original developers. The master-planned community was established in 1970, with the first village opening a year later.

In 1994, Houston looked to annex Kingwood – a process that took two years.

Today, Kingwood is a thriving community of more than 60,000 residents. The master-planned community has maintained its "close to nature" vibe and suburban atmosphere.
