Montgomery County Reviews

Moving from California, I was in complete culture shock coming to Texas. Compared to my tiny, dusty town, Montgomery was a fountain of life in which everyone knew their neighbor, said "yes ma'am" and "no sir," and held a rich history as the birthplace of the Texas flag. Living in Montgomery has taught me to always respect your elders, love your neighbors, and never give up on what you want. After spending half my life in Montgomery county, I have been able to establish myself as a proud Texan who cares about my state and its citizens. Montgomery is a wonderful atmosphere full of beautiful places and filled with the Texas spirit.

I have been a resident of Montgomery County my entire life. I have always lived in the houses and apartments, I have attended their public schools, and I have gone to many pubic services as well. It is your average area, nothing about it stands out. It does have some more city-like towns within it but it stays fairly small to average population-wise. It is a normal area with more conservative views. Everyone is connected to each other in some way. That was one of my favorite parts about Montgomery. What I would change about the community would be how the space is utilized. Montgomery is getting more places open to the public, but I feel as though a lot of the actual land is wasted on things we don’t need. I would personally like to see more environmental related plots of land rather than a concrete jungle.
I used to live in Harris County but I moved to Montgomery County 5 years ago. It was the best decision I made because everything is more calm and relaxed. There is no robberies or anything that would affect the residents here. I love living here not only because I own some land but because the cost of living here is very affordable. There are many cops around which kind of nervous but I also feel a sense of safety. I truly recommend people to live here because it is calm, nice, and full of friendly individuals. The county is also helpful towards the community which is very rare.
