As the DFW metroplex continues to grow and becomes more densely populated, Keller's proximity to DFW International Airport, the Las Colinas business center, and both downtown Dallas and downtown Fort Worth is likely to make Keller residential real estate even more desirable than it is now for people who need to commute frequently to and from these areas.
