Nestled in the western most corner of Texas, where it meets New Mexico and Mexico, El Paso is the sixth largest city in the state and its biggest border city. It is almost as close Los Angeles as it is to Houston. On the banks of the Rio Grande in the Mountain Time Zone, the city wraps around the scenic Franklin Mountains like a horseshoe. A population of 700,000 resides in an area covering more than 248 square miles. The local culture, spanning over four centuries, is a rich blend of Native American, Spanish Conquistador, Central and South American, and European influences. El Paso enjoys a low cost of living paying only 94% of the national average for all items compared to other U.S. cities. There is no State, County, or City income tax. The El Paso real estate company now known as Coldwell Banker Legacy was first founded in 1933. It became affiliated with Coldwell Banker in 1986, as Coldwell Banker de Wetter& Hovious, and a part of the Legacy family in 2014. Coldwell Banker de Wetter Hovious has been honored with the Chairman’s Circle Award every year for more than 25 years. A multiple-award winner with Cartus Relocation Corporation, our Relocation Department’s recognitions include the Cartus Cup and four Eagle Awards for Service & Excellence to USAA Members.
