It's a very mixed area like many urban areas. This particular home is near some of the most expensive real estate in Dallas and not far from some of the toughest.

As for crime rates you really need to check with PD or CRO at the police department. There are online reports, but not sure they always tell the whole story. I'd also speak with the neighbors. They're always a better source of info than anyone, although sometimes it depends on who you talk to. You get someone who just had a break in and they think crime is horrible.....talk to someone who has never been bothered and they'll tell you they never had a problem in 50 years....so try to talk to more than one person if you can.

Drive the neighborhood at different times of day....12noon...5-6-7pm as people are coming home...then at 10pm-12midnight....see who's hanging out, what kinds of cars they drive.....walk the neighborhood...talk to people....talk to business owners at the corner stores and restaurants. To me that's the best way to find out.

Hi, I agree with Dixon, I'm a life long native of the east Dallas area, and it is a good area. For crime you will need to check out the police departments websites. I wouldn't rely on the real estate websites for that, as they really don't know the neighborhoods and are not 100% accurate.
If you need an agent to help you, feel free to call

Hi Ron,

I have been a resident in the Lake Highlands and also Lakewood area for over 5 years. Rupley is an old part of Dallas. You will see mature trees, very family oriented households and kids playing on the yard....

Please let me know if you want me to show you the listing. You can reach me at 214-519-9493.
