Officials discuss Grand Parkway’s influence on Cy-Fair

Segment E of the Grand Parkway is poised to open in December, connecting Cypress and Katy by a 15-mile toll road and bringing with it potential residential, commercial and job growth. During the Nov. 7 Cy-Fair Houston Chamber mobility forum, officials discussed the affect the toll road could have in the Cypress area, comparing it with the rapid growth that occurred after Segment D opened in the mid-1990s in Katy and Fort Bend County. “We’re looking at a game changer here with the Grand Parkway coming in,” said Peter Houghton, chairman of the West Houston Association.

Why today’s homebuyer needs a real estate agent more than ever

Sometimes the savings get […]

Comment From A Valued Client!

Angela S. said, “Amy was the BEST. We had several glitches that were outside her and our control, but she went to bat for us and continuously kept us apprised with what was going on–both with the buyers of our old home and sellers of our new home. Our first buyer didn’t qualify last minute, and Amy said that she would find a new buyer as soon as possible–and less than a few weeks later she did! Then, when our bank messed up, she worked tirelessly to get people to respond, and she was calm when I was not. Amy responded, every time, quickly and with answers, and she never seemed put out with my questions or concerns. Her level […]
