What’s So Great About Katy?
Katy TX is a very large area on the west side of Houston TX…where the counties of Fort Bend, Harris, and Waller converge. It is hard to explain to people because, technically, the incorporated “City of Katy” is only a small area of about 15,000 people. However, the “Katy Area” or “Greater Katy Area” usually refers to the entire area covered by the Katy Independent School District and various sources quote the population to be somewhere between 200,000 and…

Katy vs Sugar Land
Many people moving to the Houston area are told that two of the best places to live are Katy and Sugar Land, TX. They then have a hard time deciding between the two…because they are both great places to live! Plus, they are very similar in types of homes available, good schools, demographics, etc.
However there are some slight variations that I will try to point out…

How to Buy a Great Home in Katy TX
First things first. Please read the very important Texas Real Estate Commission’s Information About Brokerage Services.
Know What You Are Doing
Get started with top-secret (not really ;-D) information that most home buyers do not know:
- The Agent Showing You Houses May Not Be Your Agent
- How to Price a Home Correctly
- Do I Need A Real Estate Agent? Maybe I Can Do This Myself
- Beware of Internet Real Estate Statistics
Know the Home Prices & Sales Data
To see detailed sales data by ZIP Code and Neighborhood, download the Katy Real Estate Market Report. This information is not available on this website.

Know What You Are Buying
There are two things you are buying when you buy a house:
- The Location/neighborhood
- The House
Location – Neighborhood
My website is here to help you narrow down your location by giving you the most detailed information available (in one place!) on the best neighborhoods in Katy. However, there are some things that only a really good, boots-on-the-ground, real estate agent knows. Like which sections of which neighborhoods flooded during Harvey. And which areas are known to have potential foundation trouble. And which areas may soon have a major roadway built in their back yard, or where the fault lines are located in the area. (Yes, there are fault lines in our area.)
So you can start off with a general idea of the neighborhoods that you like, but when I take you on tour as your real estate agent, I will explain the PROs and CONs of each area to you. That way you (hopefully) won’t find out about detrimental things about the area after it’s too late! (I learned this the hard way. Ask me about my experiences with landfills and mushroom farms!)
Then, when you find a house that you want to purchase, the first thing I do is a detailed Comparable Price Analysis (CMA) to determine the actual market value for the home. This is to help you get the best price for a home…and not pay too much! The list price on a home may or may not reflect the actual market value of the home…what it will appraise for with your lender.
Then, if we go under contract on the home, I do an in-depth analysis on that specific house to collect all the relevant data on that house and put it into one 18+ page House Report so that you have all the details saved for current and future reference. But more importantly, this is when I double-check for possible hidden defects of a home like:
- Sex offenders…is there one living on the same street?
- Flood zones…is this house high and dry?
- Environmental hazards…is the house close to anything significant?
We’ve all heard that “two heads are better than one.” When you and I work together, we can get you a great home in Katy TX!
