Exploring Dallas - Barringer Custom Homes Neighborhood Guide 

Nestled in the heart of Texas, the vibrant city of Dallas unfolds its distinctive charm through a myriad of neighborhoods. Raegan Barringer, a true Dallas native, has deep roots in the city. His formative years were shaped in the historic homes of Highland Park and Lakewood, contributing to the development of his profound interest and passion for architecture. At Barringer Homes, we take immense pride in our specialized expertise across some of the most coveted neighborhoods in Dallas: Highland Park, University Park, Greenway Parks, Preston Hollow, Devonshire, Bluffview, and Lakewood.
