It's an exciting time to be on the move and heading to the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. The 11-county region that also includes the major suburban hubs of Arlington, Denton, Irving, and Plano, is one of the most vibrant—and fastest growing—metropolitan areas in the U.S. And, if you've put Argyle on your list of potential destinations within DFW, you've made an excellent choice.
Argyle is a small, tight-knit community of just over 4,600 residents and one of DFW's most coveted communities. It provides a semi-rural, luxurious lifestyle, conveniently located near the best of the Metroplex's big city vibes.

Moving Checklist

As you prepare to make Argyle your new, long-term home, you don't want to overlook a few of the finer details of your relocation.
Update your mailing address: Avoid the common mistake of waiting too long to update an address and running the risk of missing critical pieces of mail. Upon closing the purchase of your new Argyle home, update your address with the U.S. Postal Service, and verify mail forwarding details from the address you're leaving.

Change your permanent address: Of course, it's not enough to update your address with just the post office. Though it can prove arduous, the sooner you update your permanent address with any major accounts, subscriptions, or government documentation, the sooner the town of Argyle truly becomes your home. Address updates should include, but not necessarily be limited to:
  • Driver's license
  • Auto and life insurance
  • Social security documents
  • Voter registration
  • Bank and credit card information
  • All subscription services, including magazines, streaming services, or retailers
Identify local health care providers: If you're relocating from within DFW, especially Denton or Tarrant counties, this may be a non-issue. However, if you are moving from someplace beyond DFW, identifying new primary care providers should be a priority within the first two weeks of settling into Argyle. Many of the region's best health care providers have waiting lists, including pediatric doctors and specialists.
Residential utilities: Even if someone else sets up your utilities as part of your relocation, it's good to know who you're dealing with should issue arise with your internet and cable, water and sewage, or electricity. The following are the primary providers for the town of Argyle:
