By: Ryan Renner, Realtor

I have helped many families moving to Omaha. Contact me if you have any questions about the Omaha area or need help buying a home.

Considered Omaha’s first suburb, Dundee was developed in the late 1800s. The homes here are equally unique and iconic. Some of Omaha’s most desirable real estate is along Dundee’s Happy Hallow Boulevard.

I called Dundee home for over ten years.

This neighborhood is oozing with charm and character. The downtown area of Dundee makes you feel like you live in a small town.

The homes also have a lot of character. Most of the homes in this area were built between 1900 and 1940. You’ll find a wide variety of architecture from that period.

If you are interested in buying, be prepared. Home prices in Dundee have increased significantly in the past several years. Finding a decent home under $300k in the area is tough.
