This incredible growth stems from an affordable and vibrant lifestyle, a quality public education system, a location within the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, and the availability of job opportunities and earning potential across a diverse field of sectors that assist employers to attract and retain a skilled and talented workforce.  

This growth has had so much impact that a new home developer recently referred to it as the “Frisco Effect.”
