My family will be relocating to Tyler in a few months. Need to be in an area that's a feasible commute to the abc affiliate station in Tyler by less than 30 min. What are the good areas? I'm from Shreveport and have two boys 10 & 12. We aren't hunters but do play sports. Have been to the Caldwell zoo many times, but that's pretty much it. We lived in Frisco for 3 years back in 2008 and loved it, but wound up back in Shreveport. Just trying to do a comparison. Shreveport is very "clickish" and although I don't participate, I'm used to it. More than anything need to be in a nice safe area with good schools. I hear Nacodoches is nice but that would be too far. Also hear Tyler has grown. Living in MS for 9 months, and not adjusting well. Strange how culture changes when you go just a little east. I'm greateful for any info.

Did you look fully thru the Tyler Sub-Forum, many many comments have been made recently that would answer your questions. Good luck, you should adjust to Tyler, fine. Just don't have any preconceived ideas that may make you seem defensive to start with. Schools have been talked about etc. Best to you.

So you need to be close to KLTV, which is located in downtown Tyler. There are numerous neighborhoods and areas within 30 minutes of downtown. What is your price range? Would you consider sending your boys to a private school or is public school your only option? Do you prefer a neighborhood/suburbia type setting or something with some acreage? Tell us more about the type of area and housing you like and I can help you narrow down some neighborhoods.

I can also recommend a very good local realtor to you - we worked with her when we bought our house in Chandler (which is 30 minutes from KLTV - I'm just sayin'!) last year and I've known her professionally and personally for at least 15 years. She is an excellent buyers' agent. Let me know if you want her name and contact info.
