Engel & VĂ¶lkers has opened a shop in Katy, Texas. Formerly Imagine Realty International, Engel & VĂ¶lkers Katy is led by License Partner and Managing Broker Vickey Wachtel, as well as Norman Wachtel, also license partner, and serves the Katy, Fulshear, West Houston and Memorial areas.
“As housing inventory in the Houston market moves quickly, we are seeing excess demand in areas such as Katy and surrounding suburbs,” says Anthony Hitt, president and CEO of Engel & VĂ¶lkers Americas. “Katy is known for having one of the highest-rated school systems in Texas, making the area especially attractive to families, along with rising oil prices that will continue draw employees from around the world to the Houston oil corridor. The housing market in Katy is poised for growth, and Vickey’s extensive market knowledge and international experience will be a key asset to our brand expansion in Texas.”
“Over the past 25 years Katy has transformed from a rural, sparsely populated suburb of Houston into a thriving and diverse family-first community, renowned the world over for its top-rated educational institutions,” says Vickey Wachtel. “We see buyers come from all over the world, especially South America, China and the Middle East, and having lived abroad myself for 12 years, I fully understand the value of partnering with Engel & VĂ¶lkers, a truly collaborative, global real estate company. Beyond its international reach, Engel & VĂ¶lkers will bring a new standard of luxury service to Katy real estate, and we couldn’t be more excited to be at the helm of this evolution.”
