Hi

We are due to relocate to FW for a few years, with work. We're currently looking at areas to live and are keen to know your opinions on the best (or worst!) places. We have two children, aged 6 and 8 and we need to find an excellent school for them to attend. Our priorities are find a safe neighbourhood and an excellent school, in an area which caters for families.

Any thoughts and general advice/opinions about how to make this transition to FW as smooth as possible would be gratefully received.

Thanks!

Hi - we'll definitely be renting and the budget will be around $2,000/$2,500 per month. We've been pointed to Keller for the schools and to Heritage for a home - any information, opinions or advice would be great. Thanks!

But where will your work be located? Keller is a nice community, but it can be a very long drive to some parts of the area.

Keller to Lockheed is an OK commute since you can take back roads to avoid the congested freeways. Heritage should work well for you.

Other people on the forum have indicated to look at Aledo as well for individuals working at Lockheed or the Naval Air Station.

it's tough to find rentals in Aledo.

Heritage would be a fine choice to rent for a few years.

Thanks for your comments - We really like the look of Heritage from a neighbourhood/family/local facilities point of view, it looks stunning!

I've lived in Heritage for 4 years and can give you more info if you're interested. The amenities are great and while the area is not necessarily well connected from the access to freeways point of view, we have everything we need within 15 minutes with the Alliance area and maybe 20 minutes if you head to Southlake. I have seen rentals in your range and think you'll definitely find something you like.

Make sure you wear sunscreen! (coming from England I think you'll need it in Texas )

Good luck!
