Come Home to Comfort
IPS Amarillo is a locally owned company, not a management service. You are dealing directly with the owner of the property and truly,our home is, and becomes, your home. Many of our homes were newly constructed, in some of the best neighborhoods, so we could offer them to you. And this is an important point, we are most likely your neighbor. We believe in neighborhoods and being good neighbors.
We offer a wide range of options, large and newer homes which tend toward the higher end of the cost spectrum and affordable housing as well.
One aspect stays the same; we own the home, we are not a property manager. This means we care about maintenance and upkeep. And we hope and encourage of residents to feel the same way.
So don't be surprised to see us planting a tree or be offended if we politely hint about the tall grass.
The Beauty of Amarillo
First settled in 1887, Amarillo is in the middle of the West Texas Panhandle, bordered by New Mexico and Oklahoma. The name comes from the Spanish word for yellow and was taken from the yellow-colored subsoil in the channel of the main creek. In the early days, most area homes were painted yellow to commemorate the town' s name. Rail growth through the 1890s allowed the city to become one of the world's greatest cattleshipping markets.
The city's economic reputation was built on agriculture and energy production. Amarillo has the world's largest natural gas development and provides pipelines to many large cities and thousands of towns connecting through to the Atlantic seaboard. The world's second largest gas field is being developed in the area. The area serves as a regional retail and health center for parts of Oklahoma, New Mexico and Kansas, as well as the Texas Panhandle.
Tourists driving down historic Route 66 into Amarillo often will stop to dine in The Big Texan Steak Ranch Restaurant and Motel, which serves the famous 72-oz. steak. Among the many other tourist destinations for arts and western history enthusiasts is the Kwahadi Museum of the American Indian, home of the Kwahadi Dancers, which features Pueblo and Plains Indian fine arts and crafts exhibits. Canyon, south of Amarillo, has the Panhandle Plains Historical Museum, which is dedicated to collecting and preserving regional Texas art and history. Locals like to say the museum is like The Smithsonian but with a Texas accent.
Twelve miles west of Canyon is the more than 26,000-acre Palo Duro Canyon State Park, where the outdoor musical drama Texas is presented every summer. Source: Amarillo Chamber of Commerce
