Welcome to Katy

Family life thrives in this expansive suburban paradise.
One of Houston’s most picturesque neighborhoods, Katy is a coveted place to call home. Southern hospitality is on point in this warm, inclusive community, and diversity is celebrated here. There was a time when the land for which Katy is known as home to only the roaming buffalo, wolves, and whooping cranes. The townsite was eventually plotted out in 1895, and legend has it that Katy was named for the M-K-T Railroad running through its center. The town was incorporated in 1945 and it has retained its original small-town feel. History is important to those living in Katy, and historical markers were applied to more than a dozen Katy residences and structures. 
Katy’s lush, sprawling land was made, quite literally, for spacious homes. This master-planned community boasts stunning, expansive estates, with styles ranging from craftsman and farmhouse to mid-century modern and new construction. There is plenty of room here to relax, breathe, and even get a game of catch going with the kids. If an urban setting is more your style, Katy’s luxury apartment living may be just what you’re looking for.
