Plano TX is Forbe's #1 Safest City to Live

Hip-Hip-Hooray! Another DFW city has made a national list ... Plano, a northern suburb of Dallas, Texas, is awarded as the #1 Safest City to Live!  That may be why over 265,000 people have chosen Plano to call home.      Forbes 2010 Safest Cities in America

Not only is Plano the #1 Safest City to live, but it  ...

  • is Close to Dallas with access to public transportation and the Toll Way 
  • Home of Corporate & Regional Headquarters (such as Frito Lay, JC Penny's, Cinemark Theaters, Capital One) and many Business Complexes
  • a Historic Downtown that holds something for everyone....shopping, dining, nightlife, & culture
  • Newly expanded Legacy Town Center that has a variety of shops and restaurants (Nicola's & Coast are my favorite!)
  • a Public School system that has recently been rated "Recognized" by the Texas Education Agency 
  • Has many Parks including a 200-acre park featuring trails of natural beauty for walking, jogging, hiking and other outdoor activities, and
  • Has annual Cultural Family Events ... Balloon Festival in September, International Festival in October & many more
So how's the Housing Market in Plano, you ask???  Well over the summer months, which are known as the "peak" months, houses were on the market fewer days than last year & the median sales price was $263,652 and was up 1% from 2009. 

If you or anyone you know is interested in moving to Plano, I'd be happy to share more info specific to your/their needs.
