One of the most appealing things about McKinney is its beautiful blend of old and new — this community has deep roots and history, married with an embrace of modernity. The residential real estate market there reflects this, too. Some houses are older near the historic district in downtown McKinney; others are hitting the luxury market today.
With so many variables at play, it’s important to have local experts on board as you search for a house in this city. Ebby Halliday Realtors brings just that, with a McKinney office and years of experience helping buyers find their perfect home there.
I’ve found three Ebby-repped houses that impress with their range of designs, amenities, and beautiful style.
