First Colony real estate can be challenging to navigate given the area’s number of subdivisions (amenities may be different), diversity of builders (some more superior than others), and flood-prone streets (certain areas are more prone to flooding).

To get personal advice on buying or selling in the First Colony area, contact Paige Martin, one of Houston’s best realtors and one of the top-ranked Realtors in the United States.

“It’s so hard to find a realtor you can trust these days. However, Brad Evans with the Houston Properties Team is someone you can trust and depend on. He was especially helpful for us being first time buyers. Brad was accommodating and was a great teacher along the way helping us learn everything, from the terminology to the process. We will use Brad again for our future real estate sales and purchases.” - Ryan King (Google Review)

First Colony TX History


First Colony was built in 1976 by Sugarland Properties Inc., a partnership between Gerald D. Hines Interests and Stichting Shell Pension Fund.

In 1977, not much was being built in the area. Bill Schadewald, a newbie real estate reporter, claimed to have heard rumors from local sources that "a project so large and at such a distance could succeed."

The neighborhood had a population of 18,327 people living in 5,976 housing units in the 1990 census. It has a reported area of 9.3 square miles (24 km2). As a result, First Colony's Census-Designated Place (CDP) was the 108th most populous municipality in Texas at the time. In the early to mid-1990s, Land incorporated most of Texas Colony within its municipal limits. On December 17, 1991, First Colony Municipal Utility District (MUD) 12 was formed. It comprised 1,064 acres of commercial real estate along Texas Highway.

In the 2000s, one of the few remaining pieces of Land from the First Colony was developed into Sugar Land Town Square. "I think it's safe to say First Colony was a success," Schadewald said in 2011.

Here are some of the First Colony's must-visit places:
