There’s No Place Like Home…

Isn’t it true?  There really is no place like home! For me, my home is in The Woodlands, Texas.  In my opinion, there’s nothing like it! A few of my favorite things about it…the schools, running trails, the parks, the family atmosphere, the small town feel with big city amenities, the variety of shopping and entertainment, my neighborhood, the ability to live, work and play here, and of course, the beautiful golf courses! I personally can’t see why anyone wouldn’t want to call The Woodlands their home!

I was explaining this to a friend of mine the other day.  He lives in an apartment inside the loop in Houston.  I gave him my little sales pitch for living here, and his reply was, “Why would I care about the schools, the family atmosphere, or the neighborhoods? I’m not married, don’t have children, and really prefer not to own a home.”

Hmmmm – he did have a point.

So, perhaps the most incredible thing about The Woodlands isn’t  in the details or the individual amenities it has to offer families.  Perhaps the greatest reason to live in The Woodlands goes back almost 40 years to conceptualization. The Woodlands wasn’t just planned for families like mine.  From the beginning, the “master plan” was for it to become one of the most diverse places to live, work and play  catering to all ages and stages of life.  As The Woodlands continues to grow, we see more corporate development and quality businesses moving in.  Many companies like Chicago Bridge and Iron, Exxon, and Baker Hughes are naming The Woodlands, Texas as their corporate headquarters for those exact reasons.  Brownstones, Waterway apartment buildings, and “city” type living quarters also continue to be developed near corporate landing spaces making a commute minimal or even non-existent. Businesses like Whole Foods, Local Pour, and Trader Joe’s are just a few places that call The Woodlands home.

Relocating to The Woodlands has never been more exciting! There’s so much going on with growth and development.  Incredible amenities and businesses are being added almost on a weekly basis. Will your favorite be next? Or, is it already here? If you are moving to The Woodlands or considering it, I want to encourage you to do your research.  You might be surprised at just how much there is to know and learn about The Woodlands.  There really is no place like home! (especially when your home is in The Woodlands)
