Keller Texas - Big City Comforts with Small Town Charm

Let's check out this hidden gem, a relaxed city, the perfect locale to raise a family in Tarrant county - Keller Texas!

California cost of living vs Texas

We got a lot of interest from Californians wanting to move to Texas so I thought I would come out to California to see what all the fuss is about. The exodus from California is real, yall! 

I was in San Diego earlier this year for a conference and took in the sights. California does have some beautiful views but that is not enough for some residents. Uhaul literally ran out of inventory for outbound rentals. No state had more Uhaul inbounds than Texas, just ahead of Florida. 

Our clients tell us they are leaving California for a variety of reasons. The top two - being the political climate, especially how COVID is being handled, and the cost of living. 

First, California’s crippling COVID rules.

Best Neighborhoods in Haslet Texas

If you’re looking for a little bit of country close to the suburbs of Fort Worth or looking for a new home in a master-planned community at a little lower cost, I’d like to introduce Haslet Texas. Located 15 miles north of Downtown Fort Worth is the city of Haslet, a once-sleepy town that is growing at a frantic pace. Let’s take a closer look.

Haslet is home to just over 2,200 people but that number is growing weekly as new construction hums along. The town consists of one-plus acres of rural farm properties and several master-planned neighborhoods. It is spread out and has a rural feel in most areas. Students that live in Haslet go to Northwest schools.  

The downtown area of Haslet is rather quiet but on…

Best Neighborhoods in Northlake Texas

What was once Texas Prairieland is now home to many awesome neighborhoods. Northlake is exploding with growth. The community is North of Fort Worth, Keller, and Haslet, and is mostly served by Northwest ISD and Argyle ISD. Several great private schools are also nearby. Good thing is that there is some availability in Northlake as these are all new communities with the latest technology and family-friendly design.  

Some of these neighborhoods are further from city centers but developers had that in mind when building amenity and meeting spaces. They have created their own town squares of sorts, along with a lot of open space for trails,  parks, and fishing ponds.  Some really unique concepts to bring…
