A company that pursues connecting personal and professional communities with a focus on hyperlocality has compiled three lists of metro areas where people thrived through acts of kindness this year, and Dallas-Fort Worth was ranked near the top of two of them.

Nextdoor released its “Nextdoor Rewind: 2023” on Thursday in what it calls “an end-of-year review of the collective moments and milestones reached by neighbors in cities across the country.”

The company’s compilation was divided into “Top 10” lists of three categories — “sell for good listings,” “#reunited with a lost pet or item” and “‘fave’ a local business.”

Dallas-Fort Worth ranked third in the “fave” list, meaning Nextdoor users recommended their favorite restaurants, shops, cafes and other businesses and tradespeople the recognition they felt they deserved. It ranked second in “#reunited with a lost pet or item.”

“Whether it’s a beloved French bulldog puppy or a cherished family heirloom, these metro areas topped the charts for finding beloved belongings,” according to “Nextdoor Rewind: 2023.”

In the “sell for good listings,” in which users donate the proceeds of their sales to local charities, Dallas-Fort Worth is ranked eighth.

Nextdoor neighbors use the company’s app and website to communicate with each other about what they’re selling; events; which local businesses they most trust and use; and to get help finding their lost pets, among others.

Other metro areas included in “Nextdoor Rewind: 2023” are Atlanta, Phoenix, San Francisco-Oakland-San Jose, Los Angeles, New York, Denver, Seattle-Tacoma, Washington, D.C., Houston, Tampa-St. Petersburg-Sarasota, Philadelphia, Chicago and Sacramento-Stockton-Modesto.

Nextdoor is used by people in 315,000 neighborhoods in 11 countries, according to the company’s website.
