Katy at a Glance

Sotheby's International Realty

Once a sleepy farming community, the city of Katy is thriving as Houston’s growth continues to push westward. Just 30 minutes west of downtown Houston on Interstate-10, Katy’s residents preserve their small town atmosphere and sense of community while enjoying proximity to Houston’s world-class performing arts, museums, major league sports facilities, and Galleria shopping. Closer to home, Katy Mills, one of the region’s largest and newest malls, offers an incredible variety of stores.

Katy is home to some of the Houston area’s finest upscale subdivisions, including Green Trails, Kelliwood, Nottingham, Windsor Park Lakes, Windsor Park, and Grand Lakes. Cinco Ranch, a popular master-planned development, is one of the fastest growing communities in the region, boasting a private beach and swimming lagoon, an 18-hole golf course, multiple pools, parks, and recreational facilities.

High-quality housing and a serene lifestyle attract oil and gas professionals from companies in the Energy Corridor just a few miles east of Katy. Perhaps the most outstanding attraction in Katy is the award-winning Katy Independent School District. Katy ISD is blessed with a high level of community support and involvement, with more than 7,000 parents, business professionals, and community members volunteering in the schools. Former President and Texas Governor George W. Bush cited Katy schools as an example of America at its best.

Offering a wide variety of home styles and prices, Katy blends big city amenities with a small-town atmosphere for a winning combination.
