The U.S. Census Bureau released new population estimates to show growth in U.S. cities. According to the estimates, Texas is home to 4 of the top fastest-growing cities, including Georgetown at #1.

Georgetown has been included on the list of fastest-growing cities since 2015, taking the top spot in 2015, 2021, and now 2022. Surpassing it’s rate from 2020 to 2021, Georgetown’s population increased 14.4% from 2021-2022, to a total population of 86,507. A large percentage of the population increase comes from job growth in the area and across the Austin metro. Many people are moving to the area due to their safe neighborhoods, fantastic parks, and welcoming environment.

Other Texas cities that made the top 10 include Kyle (#3), Leander (#4), and Little Elm (#5).

“My experience working with Jennifer was nothing short of first rate. She frequently went above and beyond to make sure my home presented itself as well as possible, displayed her expertise by setting an ideal asking price, and helped me navigate the entire process from listing to closing. Everything went smoothly, and my expectations were exceeded every step of the way. I would not hesitate to use her again or to recommend her to family or friends.”
