Allen, Castle Hill, Frisco, Irving, Valley Ranch, North Plano, Coppell, Flowermound ,and Frisco are VERY popular in Indians.

Surprisingly, South lake, Preston hollow, Park Cities and West Plano aren't as popular in their community so these can work for Indians who want some Indian presence but not an overwhelming majority.

Rakin, I've noticed your negatively slanted or outright slam posts to Indians.

I wonder how you treat your indian buyers, I hope it is not the way your posts read!

Calm down people. Nothing that Rakin said was racist or showed poor character.

I've heard about couples getting out of the VR area and moving into the central and north side of Coppell for the same reason.

Regardless of race, one shouldn't do business with Rakin. His poor character shows in his posts.
I'm not going to speak for or of Rakin, but I know a couple of realtors and they have mentioned that their Indian clients...buying and selling...are often particularly difficult to work with. They have attributed that difficulty to cultural differences.

They are obsessed with new construction. You wouldn't find many in established and desirable neighborhoods like Highland Park even though schools are awesome. Only well traveled, really wealthy or second generation Indians consider older homes or areas where they don't have a size able population.
Hm, unsure if racist or racist...

Seriously, which young family (even white) can even afford anything in HP? Took a quick look on redfin, the only home I found less than $1 million is still well over $300/sqft. New construction suburbs, such as Frisco, are just as desirable and are becoming well established too, in a much more affordable $/sqft. Many young couples are struggling to find anything remotely within reason in Dallas that doesn't involve sending kids to private school or requiring a two full time working parent household to afford mortgage payments.

I was talking about my Indian American colleagues who bought million dollar homes in Castle Hills and Frisco instead of having better options and now complain about commute and schools. It wasn't a racist comment, I actually like them. They make good neighbors. Most are educated, peaceful and family oriented people with studious and mild mannered children. Most have way more equity in homes than their non Indian counterparts. I don't really care about cultural differences. I would like them more if they take more interest in their yards but that's about it.

We all know the answer, just talk to anybody in retail. I heard car salesmen would clear the floor whenever they see them walk in. Its not stereotype when it is true
