I like the area and that may be my new home once I leave Chicago.



How far is it from the Dallas city limits or is it closer to FW?

Hi Ron,

I live in the Keller area, right next to North Richland Hills.

Personally, I would recommend Keller over NRH. Don't get me wrong, NRH is a great city, but it has a mixture of some lower income areas. Not that it is a bad thing if it's all you can afford, but you really can't go wrong with Keller. Great schools, parks, etc. It's been rated #7:

NRH has some nice areas too...It all depends where in NRH you are thinking about. It's really not a bad area.

NRH is closer to Ft. Worth. About 20-30 minutes away. Dallas is about an hour away in traffic. (Which is a good thing, Fort Worth is more friendly, IMO).

Keller has plenty of lower income areas as well--it is not Southlake or Colleyville--
and yes it does have some nice parks and lots of families and decent schools but you can say the same thing about NRHills to some degree and it is closer to drive to FTW from NRHills than Keller

Keller does have more aggressive city council and more open area to work with--so it is likely that Keller has more growth potential--and Keller definitely has more higher priced neighborhoods over 600K than NRHills does...

NRH is a great place to live, just have to be mindfull of some of the areas, but all towns are like that. There are some really nice areas, and some not so nice areas. the areas closer to the Keller, Colleyville and Southlake area tend to be newer and nice. But yes very family oriented area!

The more expensive areas of NRH are up aroun d N. Tarrant Pkwy and use the Keller School district, but that is a bit of a haul from Dallas. Heck all of NRH tends to be a haul even from Arlington, which is just to the south of it. NRH is definitely more on the beaten path to Fort Worth than Dallas.

I like NRH. There seems to be lots of growth potential there and some interesting neighborhoods. There are also older neighborhoods, but I've never seen anything that strikes me as "not so nice," although I have looked at some quite unacceptable homes there. As a matter of fact, I took a drive through just yesterday to check on the status of a home or two that I passed on (one in the Keller ISD and another a foreclosure that I lost out on). In each situation all of the houses around the ones that we were interested in were for sale. I remarked to the wife that if we had moved in we'd have though that they were moving out because we moved in! I'm glad that we chose a more established area to live in the end.
