- First, as someone who has lived in the Dallas area for more than 40 years, I know our area.
As a licensed real estate Broker and Realtor®, I’m NOT just an agent. Brokers have a minimum of two years in the field experience and over 1,000 hours of classroom training. I have been licensed with TREC (the Texas Real Estate Commission) since 2002.
I am a Certified Short Sale and Foreclosure Resource (certified by NAR — the National Association of Realtors).
FEWER than 1% of Realtors® have achieved this critical training and SFR Certification for their clients. To take advantage of these special buying opportunities, you need someone who is trained to understand the process of dealing with short sales and foreclosures.
My real estate sales production puts me in the top 20% of real estate agents in the entire DFW area (according to MLS). Knowing how to get transactions done (and how to avoid the pitfalls that can kill a deal), while keeping my clients informed throughout the process, makes for happy clients. 🙂
And as someone with a background in the mortgage business, you benefit since I know how to communicate well with your lender, should you be getting a loan. You’ll also understand any property issues that can make obtaining financing difficult.

Facts about Frisco Texas
When the Dallas area was being settled by American pioneers, many of the settlers traveled by wagon trains along the old Shawnee Trail. This trail was also used for cattle drives north from Austin. This trail later became the Preston Trail, and later, Preston Road. Preston Road is one of the oldest North – South Roads in all of Texas.
Originally named Emerson, Frisco was re-named by its residents in 1904, to honor the St. Louis – San Francisco Railway, on which the town was founded. The railway had built a line through the area on 1902.
Frisco was re-named, as the post office rejected the name of Emerson, with it being too similar to another town’s name in Texas.
Today, Frisco is one of the newer, trendier Collin County suburbs. In 2000, Frisco had grown to a population of 33,714. As of 2008, Frisco is home to many retail and service businesses, several sport teams and is home to over 100,000 residents.
Frisco is one of the fastest growing cities in the Unites States. A 2007 Forbes study named Frisco as the seventh-fastest growing suburb in the United States
Since 2003, Frisco has been regularly designated as “Tree City USA” by the National Arbor Day Foundation. This award recognizes environmental improvement and encourages a higher level of tree care and tree preservation within the community.
The Economy of Frisco
Like many Dallas suburbs, Frisco is accumulating a tremendous number of retail properties, including Stonebriar Centre (opened in 2000), a 165-store regional mall, and IKEA (opened in 2005), a furniture store with an area of 310,000 sq ft. Retail establishments and restaurant chains line Preston Road, which is one of the major north-south-running traffic arteries in the city.
Frisco also built Frisco Square, a mixed-use development that will become the new downtown. Frisco Square has about 250 rental residential units, seven restaurants, about 40,000 square feet of commercial office space and a few personal service locations. The major development in the project is the new City Hall and main library and a public commons.
