That being said, there are cities and "areas" that us Realtors refer to.
West includes Katy, the Memorial Villages including Bunker Hill, Spring Valley, Hunters Creek, Hedwig Village and Piney Point.
Northwest areas include Cypress, "Cy-Fair", Tomball, Magnolia, "Champions", Jersey Village and "Klein".
North Houston includes The Woodlands, Spring.
Northeast areas feature "Kingwood", Humble, "Lake Houston", "Atascocicta".
Southwest region includes Sugar Land, Missouri City, Stafford, "First Colony", Richmond
South and Southeast area include Pearland, Friendswood, "Clear Lake", Seabrook, League City
Inner Cities within Houston, but not in the city limits of Houston include Bellaire and West University
Many buyers will also look by zip codes or Key Map pages. Our local MLS has started using a new type of map that is subdivided into areas that references these "names" that are not part of a city.
Always best to use a local Realtor that knows that lay of the land, the terms locals use and best guide buyers to area they are asking for by description, but not by name!
