Report Reveals DFW Lands On Top As Brightest Job-Growth Star In U.S.

dfw

A recent report from Cushman & Wakefield, a commercial real estate services company, found that when it comes to job growth in major U.S. metropolitan areas, Dallas-Fort Worth tops the list for the time period 2009-2018.

During this time period DFW experienced a growth rate of 25.7% after more than 754,000 jobs were added in the region. The Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas also reported that in April of this year, the unemployment rate dropped to 3%, the lowest in 20 years.

Other metro cities that made the top 10 in Cushman & Wakefield’s report on job growth include San Francisco and New York City, Austin, Orlando and Riverside-San Bernardino in California. Houston and San Antonio were other Texas cities that ranked in what was classified as the “overachievers” category.

In coming to these results the firm analyzed both the number of jobs added in each region and the percentage change in job growth for the 2009-2018 period. The overall scores were computed by averaging these two figures, with Dallas having the best overall score, a 5.

A few of the things that have happened in the DFW recently include the relocation of McKesson’s headquarters to Las Colinas from San Francisco, the development of a Westlake corporate campus for approximately 6,000 employees of Charles Schwab, and the relocation of Aeromax Industries’ headquarters to Fort Worth from Los Angeles. Cushman & Wakefield said that DFW was among six metro areas they referred to as “all-star” due to jobs being added at a “breakneck pace.”

Over 130 new headquarters have made their way to the DFW area since 2010 including nonprofit organizations, Fortune 100 and Fortune 500 businesses.

Dallas-Fort Worth is the place to be for young professionals and entrepreneurs for many reasons, including the fast-growing availability of job opportunities, housing affordability and diverse culture.

What People Are Saying

  • My name is Phillip Neece and me and my family had the pleasure of working with Bill Nelson and his team at Your Home Free in purchasing our new home. As first time home buyers our agent was able to walk us through every step and made sure we were taken care through our the process. I had heard stories about buying your first home, however this agency made it so simple and fast! I can’t reccomend Bill and his team enough, they are quality professionals all around.

  • First house sold in 7 hours! Already sold 2 homes with them, built 1 and bought another so a total of 4 houses. Will definitely use them in the future. They are extremely knowledgeable, able to pick up on potential issues when viewing homes, have excellent contacts for inspections, repairs, loans, and more. They work hard. Reallllly hard. All the time. And they are straight with you. No games. I highly recommend this team.

    Tara sold my house before it even officially hit the market and for well over asking! She is very knowledgeable and happily answers all questions (even the hundreds of first time home buyer questions I had for her)! I would recommend Tara to anyone looking for a first class buying/selling...

    I loved working with Kevin and his group at Your Home Free. I sold my house and bought a new one through him. We could only meet after work and he was always available to show us houses. He put his opinion into homes and provided insight that we wouldn't have though about. He was very easy...
