Over the next 10 years, Dallas is projected to see a 42.3% in job growth. The unemployment rate is 3.9%, well below the national average of 5.2%. It is on the Forbes list as the #6 Best Place for Business and Careers and is known as the transportation hub of North America. Some of Dallas’ largest employers include Bank of America, Dallas ISD, Baylor Health Care System, AT&T, JP Morgan Chase, and UT-Southwestern Medical Center.
If you’re an avid hiker and biker, moving to Dallas is the perfect option for you. It is one of the largest municipal park systems in the nation with a total of 397 parks covering over 20,000 acres. There are more than 158 miles of urban hiking and biking trails to explore, four dog parks to spend time with your furry friends, and many families spend their summer days on White Rock Lake or Bachman Lake.

The neighborhoods in Dallas are as diverse as the population itself. Different areas will bring a different culture and vibe. If you enjoy art and music, Deep Ellum or the Bishop Arts District may be your seen. For those that love Tudor or Cottage style homes, I invite you to start your home search in Lakewood and East Dallas.
