Dallas has always been associated with wealth, and nothing personifies that image like Highland Park and University Park; commonly known as The Park Cities. In years past, the neighborhood was home to much of Dallas’s ‘Old Money’ families. However, as Dallas changed from a center of Oil, Cotton, and Banking to a much more diverse economy; so did The Park Cities. The demographic became younger and very, very different.1920’s, 30’s & 40’s vintage Cottages were suddenly being bulldozed and replaced by Large New Homes with Modern Conveniences. Recently, an older house in a prime location sold for over $5,000,000 and was torn down within days.
Although located entirely within the Dallas City Limits, both Highland Park and University Park have their own governments and public safety departments. One of the big draws for families with children is the highly acclaimed Highland Park Independent School District which is shared by both cities, and always ranks at the top of any rating system. Highland Park is also home to Southern Methodist University, and the George W. Bush Presidential Library. Tree lined streets, quality lifestyles, great schools, churches of most denominations, and proximity to Shopping Venues, Fine Restaurants, and Work Centers make The Park Cities a picture perfect location.
Speaking of shopping, Highland Park Village (the oldest shopping center in America) is quickly becoming Dallas’ version of Rodeo Drive with designer clothes straight from the fashion capitals. Inwood Village along Lovers Lane and Preston Center offer their unique brand, and of course no shopping experience would be complete without a trip to Northpark with its flagship Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, and Macy’s stores along with countless other national and local merchants.

Jim got transferred to Dallas on short notice. With packing, and moving, we didn't have time to visit to find a new apartment. Kristin found a great place that we leased sight unseen. When we got there, it was better than the pictures.

Every other company we contacted just kept sending us lists. Howard actually met with us in person and then took us on a tour of properties that were exactly what we wanted. We make sure all our friends know what a refreshing experience it was.

We've been married for two years, but whenever we talked about buying a home and starting a family; we never thought it was possible. You showed us mortgage programs that opened our eyes and last year we celebrated the holidays in our new home.
