As an agent and relocation specialist I have driven clients all over Dallas and its suburbs for many years, describing what I know and love about the city. I decided my tour-guide material needed a little refreshing so I consulted with my online expert 🙂 to come up with 10 (mostly verifiable) tidbits that will raise eyebrows. This stuff is even good enough to entertain the locals!
