This is my favorite quote.  I have it by my front door and look at it everytime I leave the house! "Remember Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did but backwards & in heels!"

As a long-time Keller resident (over 25 years) and a real estate agent, I feel compelled to advise the home-buying public of a situation specific to Keller and the Keller Independent School District. Although the Keller ISD encompasses the whole City of Keller, parts of Colleyville, parts of Southlake, parts of North Richland Hills, parts of Watauga, parts of Roanoke and parts of Fort Worth, only properties physically located within the city limits of Keller are eligible for Keller services and amenities.

The drive to and from DFW Airport was traffic-light free. The only traffic light on FM 1709 at t...

      My Mother-in-Law lives in a large three story multifamily Senior Living facility in Keller, Texas.  Recently there have been two fire alarms that required the residents to evacuate the building.  This experience was very hard on her because several of her friends are wheel chair bound and live on the upper levels and were unable to leave their apartments because the elevator does not function during a fire...This apartment facility is quite large.  It's only three stories high but there are several wings.  The apartment numbers are not easy to understand.  There is a sprinkler system, cement floors and heavy doors that will automatically close during a fire alarm.My first response to my mother-in-law was to help her understand that the building is new and is very well built and th...
