We’re incredibly fortunate – the Metroplex is on the minds of corporations and job seekers, retirees and investors. But, when potential North Texas residents visit our neighborhoods, what’s selling them on the move?
So we asked our expert agents at Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty: Q: When you’re showing Dallas-Fort Worth to out-of-towners, which lifestyle amenities are they excited about?
A: One of the appealing things about the Dallas-Fort Worth region is the availability of a multitude of ranch properties within easy driving distance to the city. Whether a client is looking for a gentleman’s ranch or a family getaway, an equestrian facility or a livestock operation, Texas and Oklahoma offer incredible options. The region’s ranch legacy attracts buyers from all over the globe, and I enjoy helping them find the property that suits their needs.

A: It really varies, depending on the client. We have been working with some executives relocating to North Texas, and they wanted to look at properties toward Far North Dallas because they wanted to have more land with their homes. They weren’t interested in Downtown or neighborhoods closer to the core. Relocation buyers are just like any other buyer – they focus on location and lifestyle when they’re looking for a home.

A: When it comes to relocating to Dallas, most buyers I have worked with prefer the convenience of city living. They want homes with proximity to good schools, plentiful green space, and multiple choices for shopping and dining. It’s great that so many Dallas neighborhoods offer these amenities and more – so there are lots of options. Ultimately, though, the most important thing to relocation buyers is finding the right home, and it’s a pleasure to help them do that.
A: With the number of corporate relocations we’re assisting with, matching buyers with lifestyle amenities is a constant. For more and more clients, walkability is very important, whether it’s arts and culture in the Arts Districts, our various sports venues or a range of restaurants. Outdoor amenities such as White Rock Lake, the Trinity River, the Katy Trail and Klyde Warren Park also are a big draw. Our region is gaining a national reputation for its lifestyle amenities.
