Lewisville is a city in Denton County, Texas, United States. It is a northwestern suburb of Dallas. The 2000 United States Census placed the city’s population at 77,737 and the 2010 Census placed it at 95,290, making it one of the fastest-growing city populations in the United States and the 33rd most populous in Texas. It occupies 36.4 square miles (94 km2) of land and includes 6.07 square miles (15.7 km2) of Lewisville Lake.
Originally called Holford’s Prairie, the origins of Lewisville date back to the early 1840s. The arrival of the town’s first railroad in 1881 engendered its initial growth, and the expansion of the area’s transportation infrastructure spurred further development in the early part of the 20th century. Lewisville incorporated in 1925, and when construction of Lewisville Lake was completed in the 1950s, the city began to expand rapidly.
Lewisville’s consistently warm climate and proximity to Lewisville Lake has made it a recreational hub of the Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex. The city’s municipal government, led by a nonpartisan city council, focuses its recreational and cultural investments on facilities such as Toyota of Lewisville Park and the MCL Grand Theater. The area’s transportation infrastructure has evolved around the I-35 Corridor along Interstate 35E. The diversity of its population and industry has created a stable economic climate. Lewisville Independent School District provides most of the area’s public education programs.
Lewisville’s rapid growth began when construction of the Garza–Little Elm Dam finished in 1954, expanding the Garza–Little Elm Reservoir into the what is now Lewisville Lake. The city adopted a home rule charter for a council–manager style of municipal government in 1963, becoming one of only a few home rule cities in Texas with a population of less than 5,000. In September 1969, 13 days after Woodstock, the city hosted the Texas International Pop Festival, which drew over 150,000 spectators and featured performances by Janis Joplin, B.B. King and Led Zeppelin. In 2011, the Texas Historical Commission dedicated a historical event marker at the Hebron A-train station in Lewisville to commemorate the event.
When Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport opened to the south of the city in 1974 and Vista Ridge Mall opened at the intersection of Interstate 35E and Round Grove Road in 1989, Lewisville began to undergo rapid suburban growth. Its population increased from 24,273 in 1980 to 46,521 in 1990, making it the 40th most populous city in Texas. In the early 1990s, the Lewisville Chamber of Commerce marketed the city with the slogan “City of Expanding Horizons”. The population reached 77,737 in 2000 and 95,290 in 2010.

What Sets Us Apart
There are many property management firms out in the marketplace today, but they do not all oversee an investment properly. At Herman Boswell Property Management, we do not believe in the remote management of our client’s rental properties. With our firm being hands on, we are able to spot any potential problem sources such as continual damage being made to the rental property, and so forth.
We personally inspect each property we manage twice a year, as to prevent costly repairs, due to the tenant not reporting issues as they arise. When choosing a property management company, it is very important that they manage your property directly and not off in some remote location, where their eyes will never see your property personally.
Unlike most of our competition out here in the marketplace, we are not a fly by night organization. We have proudly served Dallas/Fort Worth since 1968! When selecting a property management firm, be sure to investigate their ethical model that their organization has in place.
Find a firm that will provide rest assurance, that your property manager won’t just one day, not be there. We aren’t going anywhere, and we are truly looking forward to earning your business.
To ensure that your property remains in the utmost best condition, we conduct regular inspections. During these inspections, we pin point any needed repairs that may not have been reported by the tenant. This process helps to eliminate prolonged damage to your rental, due to tenant failing to inform management of repair needs that arise.
The type of inspections, that we do are move-in, periodic, & move-out inspections. We also conduct periodic drive by inspections. These inspections also help to ensure tenants are complying with their lease, as such as having unreported pets.
Our screening process is pretty robust, using the best 3rd party verification system available. We utilize credit history, criminal history, employment verification and rental history to gain a complete picture of the lease applicant.
