Horrible oppressive heat - 4/18/2013
Moved here from the Midwest to the DFW metroplex in 1996 and Keller in 2002 and still cannot handle the oppressive summers that start in May and last until November. If you can make it through 8 months of the hottest hot the remainder of the year is beautiful. Forget about going outside for 8 months because you will have heat stroke. Get ready for outrageous air conditioning and water bills and lots of sweating. You will need to water your landscaping daily to keep everything from dying as well as watering the foundation of your house to keep it from shifting in the dry soils. Lots of foundation damage here. Property taxes are sky high as well as insurance rates on both home and auto. I don't find the Texas natives very friendly at all but excessively patriotic. Animal welfare is pathetic. Traffic? Oh boy, it's 30 minutes to get anywhere. By now you can tell I hate it here. To hot, hard to make real friends. Yes home prices may be low but at what cost? Not worth it. Read More

Life in Texas - 2/29/2012
I moved here from California in February '2007 with a very open mind. Five years later I want to go home to California. I have had nothing but struggles here in Texas. Lots of good people here but the rude people are really rude and the drivers drive very dangerously. I can guarantee you will get cut off and practically run off the road every single day you choose to pull out of your driveway. Californians are even better drivers. I really miss CA and definitely appreciate now the diversity there. I think I can easily overlook the phoniness of CA in return for leaving a state like TX that has tornadoes, hail and very loud thunderstorms that keep me awake all night. Not to mention the hail. In Summer the heat is excruciating, the sun beats down so hard you feel like you're going to die if you don't get out of it. You really cannot go out much and enjoy the outdoors because the extreme weather conditions just don't permit it. And most of the jobs are low paying. It really doesn't matter Read More

Why Keller, TX is a great place to live - 10/17/2010
Being in the DFW Metroplex, Keller doesn't have the best weather around, especially in the spring when the weather can and does get violent. Keller is well laid out, and has a sense of community. The crime rate is very low, and the people are un-pretentious, despite having a median income well above average. Housing is affordable and of good quality. The property taxes are astronomical, though. (Approx 4500 for a 175,000 house). The school system is considered excellent, but I don't think it warrants the high taxes. Overall, I rate Keller a big thumbs up> I have been living here for 11 years, and have not regretted the Read More

Keller, has great people and schools. It's a wonderful family Read More

Climate - 4/3/2010
The weather in the entire DFW area is not great in my opinion. Summer heat and humidity is unbearable. You rarely see kids out playing unless they are at outdoor pools with tepid water. The home electric bills can easily exceed $400 per month for an average size home due to high demand for air conditioning. Spring and Fall are both nice but of extremely short duration. Winter is completely unpredictable. 70 degrees one day and 28 degrees the next. Scenery is flat and brown for the most part. People are very nice and you will be able to purchase a large home for a very reasonable price. Affording to run it, pay the property tax and maintain it, is another Read More

Great place, has lots of growth. - 10/10/2007
This area is growing and is becoming the center of the DFW metroplex. Estimated 16000 new residents in the next few years. Planning for development is already underway for housing, malls, big stores and more. The only thing that is not in this area is big Read More

New from O.C. California - 9/8/2007
I just moved to Keller in February with my husband and our 13 and 15 year olds. I grew up in Orange County California and have always been partial to the cities in South Orange County. However, I can definitely vouch for the quality of life here in Keller, TX. The people are friendly and there are lots of entertainment options for families, such as the Fort Worth Zoo, the Kimball Art Museum, The Wax Museum and Ripley's Believe or not Museum in Grand Praire as well as Six Flags over Texas only 30 minutes away in Arlington. If you like the beach, it's about an 8 hour drive to Corpus Christi, if you like to ski, it's about 8 hours to a good Colorado ski resort. There are lakes and fishing etc., The weather is not as bad as I thought it would be. I have been here since February so we got to see the last bit of a cold snap in the 30's at night and 50's during the day. No big deal we had days like that in Lake Forest, CA. Also everyone griped about how terrible the Summer was after I said Read More

Moving to DFW area - 12/3/2006
We currently live in FL, but probably have to move to DFW area soon. We are Germans, but already live in the US since more than 3 years. We have two sons 15 and 19 and we are interested in opionions and recommendations we to live. Office is in Arlington and we thought about Keller or any other nothern suburbs. How are schools there. Are the public schools OK or do one have to look for private schools? Any comments are Read More
