Are you coming to visit me? You should! I live in Spring, Texas

Spring, Texas - originally home to the Orcoquiza Native Americans until 1836, would eventually evolve into a trading post on the Spring Creek and then grow into a bustling town filled with German immigrants who transformed Spring into a farming town  - largely in due to the riches and resources of Carl Wunshce and Gus Bayer. Bonnie & Clyde even robbed a bank in Old Town Spring, once. So you know it was a happening place to be! LOL!

Spring, Texas - today - is a bustling north suburb of Houston, Texas.  Spring is 35 - 55 mins from downtown Houston.  Our little slice of residential nirvana is accessible via the 45-North, Hardy Toll Road and Grand Parkway - 99. There are a plethora of ways to get here and Spring is a vast township of Harris County. 

What's amazing and fabulous in Spring, you ask?

Spring is predominantly a family town.  The township is large enough that Spring residents are privy to schools in the Spring ISD, Klien ISD or Conroe Independent School District (click on each link to find homes for sale in each school district) depending on where your address falls in the zone. In addition to 3 public ISD(s), there are 17 private schools available in the area. We are even lucky enough to have two of the best North Harris County libraries on either end of the township / suburb: Baldwin Boettcher and the Barbara Bush Library. 

And let me not forget that we are the hometown of:  Simone Biles, American artistic gymnast - Olympic All Around Champion, 5x Olympic medalist, 4x Olympic gold medalist, 3x World All-Around Champion and 10x gold medal winner; resides in Spring, TX and Jim Parsons, actor - The Big Bang Theory; who graduated from Klein Oak High School.

So, if you are in the mood for a bit of the Old West, come to Spring, Texas.  We'd be happy to have you!
