A Note on 2023 Regional Performance:

The Conroe Region is proud to have gained market share in 2023. We generated more than $200 million in new loan production over the year, and new account growth has remained strong.

Montgomery and Walker Counties are among the fastest-growing areas in Texas and the nation. Our local school districts are growing at a rapid pace, with Conroe Independent School District planning eight additional schools for 2024. The City of Conroe, in a joint venture with Hyatt, opened a new 250-key Hyatt Regency, with 38,000 square feet of meeting room space. Further, at least five master planned communities are being developed in the area.

We are extremely proud of the growth in our ITIN (Individual Tax Identification Number) and Affordable Home Mortgage Programs to help finance homes in our low-income neighborhoods. We have partnered with the Montgomery County Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and the National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals to facilitate our success. Further, we have hosted numerous events educating realtors and potential home buyers to assist in their dreams of home ownership.

With the dedicated and professional bankers here serving our community, we are excited about 2024. Our Conroe team lives out our 21 service Non- Negotiables every day.
