One of the fastest-growing cities in the nation, Frisco is an upscale DFW suburb with about 161,000 people, growing by over 127,000 people since 2000. Why are people flocking here? In a word: opportunity.
Frisco is known for highly rated and very desired schools, great family parks, and destination dining, retail, sports, and entertainment options. As the Frisco Economic Development Corporation says, the city is also a magnet for a skilled workforce who are contributing to Frisco’s rapid annual residential growth-rate of more than five percent.
Ebby Halliday Realtor Jane Yeatman of the Yeatman Team says location and schools are a huge draw for families.
“Strategically, the Dallas North Tollway intersects Frisco and the southern border is 121, so if you’re commuting, you’re on a highway fast,” Yeatman said. “There’s also a different school concept in Frisco ISD — we’ve got nine high schools compared to a similarly sized city with three — and in a recent report, quite a few schools in the district were on a ‘best in Texas’ list.”
She also mentions the strong business culture of the city and increasing (and impressive!) changes. The $5-billion mile, for example, includes four mixed-use developments and more than $5 billion in capital investment. One famous development in it is the Cowboys world headquarters at the The Star.
Ebby Halliday has Realtors like Yeatman on the ground every day in the city and they’ve got the temperature on the market. These experts know neighborhoods and can help homebuyers find their perfect Frisco home. Let’s take a look at three houses that show off the best of the city.
