Help the community by answering this question:


I'm not a Realtor, I'm a resident of The Colony who has lived here since 2009 and we have never had any issues or heard of any. (Not to say there hasn't been any) It's really quiet and safe and the people are friendly. :)

I've never heard anyone complaining about The Colony. If you are concern about safety I would suggest contacting the local police department. You can also check https://www.crimereports.com/.

If you are not currently working with a realtor then I'd be happy to assist you. I have friends living in the Colony and they love it there.

Take care,

Very safe. We have been here since 1996 and is a great town to raise children and dogs.

Safe is all relative. A cheap neighborhood will not be as "safe" as an expensive neighborhood. Do your due diligence and investigate any neighborhoods your are interested in. There are many online sites to do that.

Crime is everywhere, but I've never really heard people be concerned about the Colony.

If it is a real issue, you might contact the police department non-emergency number and ask for the CRO or community resource officer and discuss your concerns.

If you look around most violent crime in these areas is between people who know each other. Husband kidnapping the children, murder-suicide between husband and wife, etc.... not random between people who don't know each other.

Click on "local info" link at the top of the Trulia site. You can research the area in detail street by street. It is a great source for information. I would be happy to provide an MLS listing report & answer questions if you are not already working with a Realtor.

Agents don't like to comment on crime because it opens themselves up to liability (it's not a Fair Housing issue like some have suggested). As a current resident of The Colony since 2001 I can tell you my family loves it and we all feel safe enough to walk the dog at night and run around the block when we need exercise. Not to say The Colony is crime-free but there's worse places to live. YMMV.

I'd be happy to sit with you and share my expertise on the area.

Mike, Steering falls under the heading of Fair Housing laws which describes not only channeling but discouraging potential buyers from a certain neighborhood based just not on the racial make-up of a neighborhood but other factors as well which includes crime activity.
Flag Thu Feb 21, 2013
By Fair Housing laws, real estate agents cannot comment on whether a neighborhood is considered safe. I suggest that you contact the local police department and inquire about the crime activity in The Colony to hear first-hand the frequency and types of crimes in that area.

Best wishes!
