Just last year, Frisco was rated the number one place to live by Money Magazine. The city that was once a small, quiet community is now the most sought out place to call home. So why all the fuss? The city of Frisco provides a higher quality of life for its residents. From its outstanding schools to its spectacular shopping and dining, Frisco is making a name for itself that is recognized nationwide.

People are Flocking to Frisco

Known as a city of progress, Frisco has consistently been one of the fastest growing cities in the country since 2000. Today, Frisco is home to over 180,000 residents!

Business and Jobs

Jobs in Frisco are projected to grow by nearly 15 percent over the next four years, thanks to the reasonable cost of living the city affords its residents. Blue-chip companies like AT&T, Toyota and Oracle have built offices in Frisco so they can provide jobs where houses are affordable for their employees. The growing city has made room for multiple major corporate headquarters in its mixed-use developments. Employees relocating to Frisco will experience a diverse community of skilled workers that are delighted in the city’s lower cost of living and shorter commute times.

Homes

With the high quality of life and the rapid population growth, there is plenty of room for home builders to flourish in Frisco. Darling Homes is among the top builders in Frisco with nine authentic communities to choose from.

The communities these homes are located in are not your average neighborhoods. Newman Village, a master-planned community built around a deep appreciation for European and Mediterranean architecture, has created an eclectic streetscape like no other. The Estates at Shaddock Park is another master-planned community that offers residents a central location with resort-style amenities and a 6-acre park.

Edgestone at Legacy provides residents with miles of winding trails throughout the community as well as neighborhood parks and upscale amenities like a fitness center and a clubhouse with a swimming pool. Canals at Grand Park is home to low-maintenance luxury properties that offers homebuyers modern style with upscale suburban comfort.

Education

The Frisco Independent School District is a top-rated school district with an extremely high graduation rate of 98.2%. Frisco’s exceptional public-school system has more than 70 campuses in the area with 92% of their students meeting state standard in all grades and all subjects. The district also offers high school students the opportunity to gain real-world experience in specialized programs from health science to hospitality through their state of the art Career and Technical Education Center.

Frisco ISD also benefits from private partnership arrangements that provide high-level sports, art and technology for the city. Its partnership with the Dallas Cowboys allows high school teams to use the NFL team’s indoor athletic practice facility, the Ford Center at The Star, for practice and games.

Entertainment

Speaking of the Dallas Cowboys, the team chose to move their world headquarters to Frisco, noting that the city aligns with the Cowboy’s core values, which include youth sports, health, safety and community. Not only are the Cowboys calling Frisco home, but so are seven other Dallas-area professional sports teams who have moved their headquarters to the city, making Frisco a sports enthusiast’s dream.

However, if sports won’t draw you to the city, the shopping might. You can occupy your time with over nine million square feet of retail and dining, award winning hotels, parks, concerts and events in Frisco. Stonebriar Centre in Frisco offers locals a variety of entertainment from shopping through a wide range of incredible stores to relaxing at the movie theater or dining in a full-service restaurant. The Shops at Legacy offer even more dining and shopping opportunities. Want more? Downtown Dallas is just 25 minutes away, offering access to exciting Metroplex destinations.

Last but not least, you can’t forget about the excellent weather the city sees almost every day. With an average of 232 clear days per year, you can’t help but enjoy a better quality of life in Frisco.
