Find Your Perfect Frisco Home with Ebby | CandysDirt.com

The Starwood custom home at 5608 Monterey Dr. is an example of the kind of incredible properties Ebby Halliday can help buyers find in Frisco.

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.

Find Your Perfect Rockwall Home with Community Experts Ebby Halliday Realtors | CandysDirt.com

The Rockwall home at 2050 Silver Hawk Ct.

About 25 miles northeast of Dallas on the eastern shores of Lake Ray Hubbard, Rockwall is a popular city for people looking for lake living and a strong sense of community. This is a rapidly growing area, with a population around 40,000 in its 31 square miles. 

It’s a popular place for good reason: family-oriented, small-town feel with cute nostalgic downtown area and lots of locally owned restaurants and shops. Rockwall ISD gets high marks from parents and there are many family activities, like movies in the parks and concerts on the water. The lake creates a sense of separation from the bigger cities, but you’re really only a 20-minute drive from the Dallas Museum of Art, Deep Ellum, and other big city stuff, thanks to Interstate 30, which runs south of the city. Rockwall is well appointed for fun, with 23 parks, spraygrounds, a dog park, aquatics, and rec centers, too. 

“Rockwall offers affordability — people can get a beautiful home in a great neighborhood with excellent schools: the lifestyle they want and have an easy commute,” said Dell Osborn, a Realtor with Ebby Halliday’s Rockwall/Heath/Lake Ray Hubbard office and listing agent for the property pictured above.

I’d love to show you three exceptional properties I found, represented by Ebby!

Ebby Halliday Helps Buyers Find Fabulous Homes, Schools, and Lifestyle in Southlake | CandysDirt.com

The one-of-a-kind home at 1900 Shady Oaks Dr. in Southlake.

Southlake is a well-to-do western suburb situated in Tarrant and Denton counties. It offers the charms of a smaller town with high caliber schools and a highly desirable lifestyle for the people calling it home. 

Ebby Halliday Realtor Susan Mayer lived in Southlake for many years and her daughter went through Carroll ISD. She says the focus on education is one of the big draws of living there. 

“The parent groups were like minded in their focus on education, on quality school programs, and their drive to get these kids into four-year colleges,” Mayer said. “[Many] families in Southlake have dual college degrees, which is important, too.” 

There’s also the feel of the town, which Mayer describes as bucolic. 

“You still get that pastoral feel, but you’ve got some of the top-rated schools in Texas,” she said. “My relocation clients, they always focus on Southlake first if it fits their budget.” 

Which brings us to pricing: a starter house in Southlake will often run you about half-a-million dollars and it’s highly competitive at that lower dollar amount. Of course, you can certainly spend upwards of a million, too, and families clamor to get into this fantastic city at higher prices, too. It’s pretty much an ideal kind of suburb. 

This is where Ebby Halliday comes in. They’ve got seasoned Realtors — many of them Southlake residents — who know the area intimately and personally. They can help homebuyers navigate the Southlake real estate landscape and find the right house. 

I’ve found three marvelous properties represented by Ebby Halliday Realtors that exemplify the kind of houses you can find in Southlake — you’re going to love their style and amenities! Read on to see more.
