Keller, Texas... a Great Place To Live...

Keller, Texas... a thriving "smaller city," and a suburb of Fort Worth, Texas, was named one of the Top-Rated Smaller Cities in America.  Keller is just west of Southlake, Texas... and just south and east of the Alliance Corridor area of North Texas.

The fact that Keller is well-known for it's superb school system, it's great shopping, and it's active but reasonably-priced housing neighborhoods, it's great high school sports teams, and the fact that Lake Grapevine is just a few miles away... all contributed to Keller being part of this celebrated group of cities.

Other cities in Texas named to the list are three other North Texas cities besides Keller... Allen, McKinney and Flower Mound.  Two cities in the greater Austin area... Round Rock and Cedar Park made the list, along with Friendswood, League City and Sugar Land... three suburbs of Houston... also made the list.

Many folks outside of Texas may think Texas is either a state fully of cowboys and cactuses... or huge cities like Fort Worth, Dallas, San Antonio, Houston and Austin... but for those seeking a less hectic place to live... Texas has those too.

If you are considering relocating to Fort Worth or Keller Texas... call the New Homes hotline at (817) 929-3400... or sample some of the area's great new homes at the Hotline website at www.NewHomeHuntersDFW.com .

Karen, I have to visit Keller next time I'm in Texas. It sounds like an All American town...

Hi Karen Anne... I'm curious, who put out this ranking?  Keller is a great city with a lot to offer.  It also has some wonderful housing deals!

Tom:  I had just a wonderful holiday.  I was released from the cardiac ward of John Peter Smith hospital in FW on Christmas Eve, and had my very own bed and pillow all for me... on Christmas Day.  So yes, it was nice.  I hope your Christmas and New Years was more "socially fun."  And yes, there is more here that cowboys and cacti.  Take care...

Gary:  Yes... Keller is a great place.  But... so is Flower Mound... and so many other areas in and around DFW.  Take care...

Tina:  It is always nice to finally see something positive about real estate... especially in the national news media.

Paul:  Keller is a great little town.  But... if you come down to visit... please leave all the snow and flooding back there... puhleeze !  Take care...

Steve:  One of the sources was Money Magazine... although there were several other sources with somewhat different write-ups to be found.  And yes... these days there are some decent values in just about any city in North Texas.  Take care... :)  Time to go beddy-bye !

Karen--So Texas isn't all about cowboys and cacti? Hmmm...Right now Minnesota is living up to its reputation for cold and snow but we are not all about that either. Sounds like you are a go-to REALTOR for finding the perfect community to call home in Texas!

Karen Anne:  It's always nice to know the top rated cities, and how they got to that spot.  I have only heard of Flower Mound before, and that's from reading Gary Woltal's blog.

Karen, that's a great write up on one of the suburbs in your market area.  Covering the rankings, the schools and the location.  Way to get Keller some exposure.

Teri:  What a sweet surprise your comment is.  I don't think my mother could have said something nicer to me... so thanks so much.  I grew up in Cleveland, Ohio, and they got twelve inches of snow in the past two days, so I surely know what growing up in cold and snow is like.  Teri... thanks so much for your kind comment.  Take care... stay warm...

Posted by Karen Anne Stone, Fort Worth Real Estate (New Home Hunters of Fort Worth and Tarrant County) almost 10 years ago

Chris Ann:  Yes, Flower Mound is a bit further north than either Keller or Fort Worth.  This ranking was something I saw on Money, and in several other places.  Hope you are keeping warm up there in PW County.  Take care...

Mark:  Thanks for your kind comments on my Keller write-up.  Keller sometimes gets "jumped over" because of some of the more "glitzy" suburbs like Southlake and Colleyville... but Keller... great schools and great location... and the prices mean that even "normal" (whatever that means) people can buy and live there.  Thanks again... take care...

Karen,

I agree. Keller is a great place. I am from Texas and have friends that live there and love it. I am from Plano and Frisco and I am amazed what some people think of Texas. Now, some parts ARE cowboys and cactus (and oil rigs!).

Kristi:  These days there are many more "gas wells" than there are oil rigs... especially around the Fort Worth area.  I recently passed through Colorado Springs on my way to spending a few days in Denver.  The air, or lack of it, is incredible.  I had much trouble catching my breath, and was very glad to leave.  A very pretty drive from Raton Pass to Denver, though.  The mountains are gorgeous.
