Tour Dallas’ Best Suburbs with Robbie Briggs & Top Dallas Realtors
August 1st, 2013 | by The Update
We all know the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex is a great place to live, and there are plenty of reasons why DFW’s many suburbs are particularly great for families and those working in corporate industries.
Robbie Briggs, CEO of Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty, notes one of the key factors for why so many people flock to Dallas’ suburbs: “Dallas has 22 Fortune 500 Companies, and many of them have made their headquarters in this north/far north Dallas quadrant, so a lot of corporate moves are to this part of the city.”
Here’s a close look at top DFW suburbs in the north Dallas area and Tarrant County:
North Dallas Suburbs
Realtor Shell Stegall shares about the Plano/Frisco/Allen are from one of North Dallas’ cultural hubs, the Shops at Legacy: “These northern suburbs are really a terrific area. They’re centrally located to Dallas, close proximity to the Tollway— you can get to downtown Dallas really quickly if you need to. All three of these cities are really good at building cultural experiences for the people who live there.
Shell continues, “I think one of the nicest things about it is it gives you a little more of a small-town feel, and I think that parents can sometimes relax a little bit with their children and give them a few more freedoms in life that maybe you don’t get in the urban areas. I think when people are trying to decide what area fits their lifestyle and their family needs the very most and they start looking at whether they want to locate close in Dallas versus a suburban area, a lot of people come to these northern suburbs because they offer academically fantastic schools.”

Tarrant County Suburbs
Realtor Terry Cook guides you through one of Southlake’s main attractions, Southlake Town Square: “[Southlake] has been very popular with families in the last five to ten years moving to the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Southlake Town Square really gives a sense of community and it brings the old-time feeling… It has all types of shopping, restaurants, retail, the post office. Families come and spend their Saturdays listening to music, buy their fruits for the weekend, do all types of things.
Terry continues, “[Southlake is] an area known for its excellent schools and educational opportunities— it’s very close to colleges. It’s very close to sports venues such as the Dallas Cowboys and the Texas Rangers. It’s very close to downtown Fort Worth within 30 minutes and downtown Dallas within 35 minutes. So the arts— such as the symphony, ballet, and other art venues— are really close at hand, but yet you have a country atmosphere and a country feel of living.”
