Frisco continues its rapid growth, adding around 37 new residents every day, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. It’s one of the fastest-growing cities in the nation, they reported in May.

That makes real estate in this affluent northern suburb a hot ticket and luxury housing does quite well in Frisco — high-end, gated communities with great amenities are where a lot of those sales are happening. 

When buyers are looking in Frisco, they need an expert with local presence and years of experience, like Ebby Halliday Realtors. They have an office in Frisco at Legacy Drive and State Highway 121 and many of their agents live nearby. They can navigate the market with assurance.    

I’ve found three luxury properties represented by Ebby Halliday in those gated communities — one even has an open house this weekend.

Drive the streets of Preston Hollow regularly and you might see some famous faces, from George W. Bush and Mark Cuban to former Dallas mayors Tom Leppert and Laura Miller. This is one of the most sought-after and affluent neighborhoods in the city, with gorgeous estates on larger lots and an excellent location just five miles north of downtown.

Ebby’s Little White House and the gorgeous Preston Center office serve the Preston Hollow luxury market.

Developed from farmland in the 1930s, Preston Hollow still has a pastoral feel in many areas. While there is some debate about boundaries, they are generally considered to be Royal Lane, Hillcrest Lane, Northwest Highway, and Midway Road. 

Ebby’s Little White House at Preston and Northwest Highway stands as testimony of the one real estate brokerage that has been local to Preston Hollow since the 1960s, Ebby Halliday Realtors. Here, an outstanding group of top-producing agents serve the community, including some of Dallas’ most elite locales. Ebby also provides exceptional service to Preston Hollow from its beautiful Preston Center Office at 8333 Douglas Ave. The contemporary, recently remodeled space offers experienced, high-quality agents and the latest in technology in a much-sought after Preston Center location. It’s this local expertise and long-standing history in the area that differentiates Ebby Halliday for both buyers and sellers.  

I’ve found three fabulous properties on the market now that will impress with their aesthetic, amenities, and location. Let’s take a look.

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.

Far from Southfork, plenty of Ewing family drama was shot at 2504 Beacon Crest in Plano's Willow Bend Country.

Tonight’s premiere of the TNT relaunch of Dallas will afford you a unique opportunity to preview the Plano home where the Ewing family double-cross one another.

According to Cody Baker of Ebby, Mary Jo Pope of the Paulette Greene Group has the listing where tons of scenes were shot. Why was the Willow Bend Country home chosen?

Rumor has it that this particular home was chosen over all other options for the filming of interior scenes because of its wide open spaces, beautiful decor and many amenities.

Pope, who was present for filming, said a family dinner scene was shot in the formal dining room, a scene featuring actors Patrick Duffy and Jesse Metcalf (Bobby and Christopher Ewing, respectively) was shot in the study, and the pre-wedding bridesmaid  scene was filmed in the downstairs guest suite.

Want to see what the actors look like in between shots? Check out these photos of Pope rubbing elbows with the stars!
