I went to school in Dallas. I think you will love Weston. Definitely warmer in the Winter, and a tiny bit cooler in the summer. Anyway, with a large dog, you would definitely need a single family home. Is it an inside dog, or outside dog. ie - is he/she used to a big yard? What breed is he/she?Depending on the breed, I am sure we could find something for you to rent.
Do you have children? How many bedrooms are you looking for? Have you visited Weston before, or how did you decide on it? The school system is GREAT if you have school-age kids. The City is completely and totally all about families. It really is a wonderful place to live and raise your family.
If you give me a time-frame, number of bedrooms and approximate rental rate, I am happy to send you some current information. Keep in mind however, that whatever information you receive today, or find online, is most likely not going to be available when you are ready to move.
The market is moving very quickly here. In fact, usually, by the time our clients contact us because the have found a property they wish to see, we (as agents) can't get an appointment to see it quick enough before it goes into contract. Having said that, I am happy to help you with whatever housing needs you may have.
Incidentally, in addition to being a real estate agent, I am also an attorney. The combination has worked out great for my clients, as they haven't had a need to find and hire an attorney to review their contracts and prepare or review closing statements (in the event of a sale). I have become a 1 stop shop for them.
Hopefully, I have answered some questions for you. With a little more information, I would be able to narrow the topics more to your needs.Good luck selling your home in Dallas (Incidentally, I lived on campus at SMU), and good luck with whomever you decide to contact. Thank you for your time and good luck with your move.
