Yes change in roles. New manager said they want me in Dallas when we start to go back in. I was also looking to move. Been in the same city my whole life.

There is a DFW bowl that would give you more insights. Most folks are right. No kids, stay in Uptown. Kids, find a good school district not far from your office. Frisco/Plano if you want to go north. Flower Mound/Keller if you want to live north west of the city. Traffic sucks but it’s not NY/LA.

Highland Park or University Park if you have kids. Great neighborhoods, close to downtown and great schools, but expensive. I would also add Southlake which is a bit farther out. Frisco/Plano/Allen are great but you are looking at a very long commute.

I’m assuming you are asking about the commute from Plano/Frisco/Allen. I would say 60-90 minutes during peak times.

At what pt in the transaction is the furniture for a home sold/moved? Had a buyer walk the day before closing so a bit paranoid about this time around. With the last buyer, they were going inherit the furniture so this wasn’t an issue, but the new buyer does not want it so trying to have them allow me to sell it (for 2-3 days) after closing day so I’m not shit out of luck. The property is an airbnb, so if i sell everything and this new buyer walks, I’m screwed as i’ll have to pay $3400 a month.
