Get to know Conroe

Conroe is a bit of an unexpected boomtown, topping the list of the fastest growing cities in the nation for the past few years. The region grew from a semi-rural town to a rapidly expanding city in a decade—almost doubling its 56,000 population in 2010 to 98,000 in 2021. There’s a sense here that Conroe is an under-the-radar gem and its residents are proud to have snagged a front-row seat to a city on the rise. Almost all homes in Conroe are new construction (or at the least, very recently built), and newcomers will find that you can generally get more for your budget here than in other nearby towns. Unlike other Texas suburbs, Conroe has grown organically (rather than being master planned), and residents love visiting Lake Conroe and the two forests along the region’s borders. There’s also a delightful historic downtown, with a thriving arts community.

Living in Greater Houston

Like all of Texas, Greater Houston’s history is the story of oil, with suburban towns developed by and for gas and oil executives, with Houston’s Energy Corridor remaining a major employer today. The suburbs of north Houston stretch from Kingwood, technically inside the city limits, all the way up to and beyond The Woodlands, whose growth and prominence has earned it its own identity, separate from H-Town. These suburbs are young metropolises—towns that grew out of farmland and forest in the past 50 years, with houses, office parks, newly created lakes, and golf courses emerging from rural lands where only cows and feral pigs once roamed. As Houston’s economy has diversified and as the region has created more new jobs, Houston residents have looked farther and farther out for more space to settle. Greater Houston is booming and there’s no better place to call home.
