Although Coppell is thought of as a relatively young city (incorporated in 1955), its roots can be traced back to the early 1880’s as many towns in north Texas began: a bustling railroad stop for commerce and agriculture. The Dallas County (and a little bit of DenCo) city has an estimated population of  41,000, fed steadily by its proximity to jobs at D/FW International Airport and Coppell ISD’s top-notch schools, ranked number 5 in the state of Texas. This week’s Suburb Sunday features three beautiful homes among an already-great selection of decade-rich houses. Which is your favorite?

In the 30-mile span between Dallas and Fort Worth, the Mid-Cities and surrounding cities are some of the fastest-growing communities in North Texas. There’s huge diversity in the available houses and community amenities, so finding a knowledgeable Realtor with local expertise and presence in the Mid-Cities can make or break a house-hunting strategy.
