Property taxes and appraisalsAs a group, Texas REALTORS® work in the public-policy arena to help reduce the state's heavy reliance on property taxes.

Moving to Texas
Congratulations and welcome to the Lone Star State. Texans are friendly people. In fact, our name comes from the Caddo Indian word tejas, which means friend. We are very proud of our state - and you will be, too. There's an old saying among naturalized Texans, "I wasn't born in Texas, but at least I got here as fast as I could."
Texas' size is matched only by its diversity - people of different cultures coexist and several different industries flourish. You'll also find a variety of food, music, languages, entertainment, employment opportunities, professional sports, and outdoor activities.

Together with private-equity giant Carlyle Group, credit card issuer Capital One, student loan company Sallie Mae, the investment house Friedman, Billings and Ramsey, and many others, Fannie and … (0 comments)
