North Richland Hills, Texas
North Richland Hills is a city inside Tarrant County, Texas, United States, and a mid-to-high end suburb of Dallas and Fort Worth. The population was 63,343 at the 2010 census, making it the third largest city in Tarrant County. In 2006, North Richland Hills was selected as one of the “Top 100 Best Places to live in America” according to Money magazine. Major streets and highways include FM 1938 (Davis Boulevard), Mid Cities Boulevard, Bedford-Euless Road, Interstate Highway 820, North Tarrant Parkway, FM 3029 (Precinct Line Road) and TX SH 26. It is home to the Birdville Independent School District and the northern portion is served by Keller ISD.
NRH notably houses the headquarters of Health Markets. North Richland Hills features popular businesses and locations including the NRH20 Water Park, North Hills Hospital, its own state of the art public library and is surrounded by communities including Haltom City, Keller, Hurst, and Southlake. It also infamously housed the now-demolished North Hills Mall (now the new location of the NRH City Hall as of 2015) which ceased operations in 2004, due to its higher-end competitor North East Mall in Hurst (approximately 5 mi) expanding with a cost of $200 million in 1999, with openings of upscale stores Nordstrom and Saks Fifth Avenue in 2001. Respectively in 2012, North Richland Hills was ranked at #44 (ahead of Hurst) as one of the Best Dallas Suburbs according to D Magazine.
The community began when W.S. Peters agreed to bring 600 families into the area within a three-year period as part of a land grant. Families began arriving in the summer of 1848. In 1849, Tarrant County was established and named for General Edward H. Tarrant. The community of Birdville (adjacent to what is now North Richland Hills’ southwest boundary) was named the first county seat. The area remained a rural farming and ranching community for more than 100 years.
In 1952, Clarence Jones began to subdivide his 268-acre (1.08 km2) dairy farm into a suburban addition in the area that is now Cummings Drive. In 1953, the North Richland Hills Civic League sought to have the area annexed to Richland Hills, then voted to form their own city when annexation was denied. An election was held, and the 268 acres (1.08 km2) of the Jones Farm, with a population of 500, became officially incorporated as the City of North Richland Hills.
The first section of streets in North Richland Hills was named for the local families. The second section, which was added in 1954, was named for automobiles. There were 188 homes in the first part of the subdivision, which was restricted to brick and masonry construction.
By 1957, the North Richland Hills’ boundary was within 2 miles (3 km) of Smithfield, and by 1960 Smithfield had been annexed to North Richland Hills. In 1960, the population of North Richland Hills was beginning to rise at 8,662 residents, with that number doubling to 16,514 by 1970. The city’s population continued to grow at a rapid pace with the 1980 census at 30,592 and the 1990 census reflecting 45,895. In 2000 the population was 55,635, rising to 63,343 at the 2010 census.

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.
