Cities all over North Texas are attracting new residents for a number of reasons, including good employment opportunities, exceptional school, culture, diversity, family-oriented communities and more. Plano is one of these cities, billing itself as the “City of Excellence” for its plentiful jobs, livability, affordability, parks and more according to recent reports. Our DFW real estate professionals are proud to represent buyers and sellers who are looking to find their dream home in one of our most popular cities, or who want to find the right buyer for their home.
With a population of just 3,000 in the 1960s, Plano’s current population is about 286,000 today as the ninth largest city in the state. Some of the companies with corporate offices in the city include Pizza Hut, Toyota and Frito-Lay, among others.
Ethnic diversity is another factor that lends to Plano’s success, along with great restaurants offering up all kinds of chef-inspired cuisine from burgers, pizza and comfort food to international fare. In fact, city officials are very proud that when it comes to restaurants, Plano has more per capita than San Francisco!
Neighborhood parks abound in Plano, a city that focuses on making life enjoyable and safe for residents of all ages. From millennials to middle-aged and retirees, there’s something for everyone – and this amazing city wants to keep it that way, from large companies that draw in millennials to incentives that help retirees remain in the community such as capped property taxes and water/sewer bill discounts.
At Team Nelson our Dallas real estate agents know it’s the quality of life that’s most important. Plano is the “City of Excellence” for so many reasons, including the relatively low cost of living, skilled labor force, and green initiatives. This amazing city just outside of DFW truly is the place to call home!
