Welcome to Frisco
Frisco was voted the #1 place to live nationwide in 2018 (by Money magazine) and ranked the fastest-growing American city of 2019. Frisco’s real estate is some of the newest in the country, which indicates that an influx of homeowners are choosing to invest in new construction there. The relatively high levels of ethnic diversity and education among its 177,000+ residents make Frisco a mid-sized city with a cosmopolitan feel. The enviable public school system, lack of crime, and numerous attractions clearly outweigh the 30-minute average commute for Frisco’s workers, 92% of whom are white-collar professionals. Interestingly, Frisco has more people employed in the math and technology sectors than 95% of other U.S. cities. Highway 121, Frisco’s southern boundary, and the Dallas North Tollway offer convenient transit options and easy access to Downtown Dallas. Due in part to the vast presence of top-tier sporting facilities and cultural centers, Frisco offers its citizens an exemplary quality of life.
