Realtors can't answer specific questions about how good an area is. But I know Dearborn well and it has become a diverse area with a lot of good restaurants, a wonderful library, major highway access, and is the World Headquarters of FORD motor company. The University of Michigan has a Dearborn campus also, so to answer your question, yes there is a University in the city.
Dearborn is also home to The Greenfield Village, one of the best "museums" in the country.
The best thing to do is come in to town for a few days and drive around the city to explore what it has to offer, I think you will really enjoy it.
I hope this helps a little.
