Christian Real Estate Professionals : Texas: McKinney

Cinco, Cinq, FIVE - McKinney, TX Makes Top 100 List of CNN MONEY's Top 100 Places to Live!

For all those that have asked me:

 "Why do YOU like living in McKinney, TX"?, or

 "What DFW city should I live in"?, or

"What's so special about McKinney, anyway"?

I give you this:

CNNMoney.com's Top 100 Places to Live as Exhibit A through Z!

WE'RE NUMBER 5!

Beating us out were: Eden Prairie, MN; Columbia/Ellicott City, MD; Newton, MA; and Bellevue, WA.

The reporters from CNNMoney.com reviewed cities with populations of 50,000 to 300,000 and poured over information regarding job opportunties, fiscal strength, schools, crime rate, health care quality and things to do (entertainment factor).

What impressed me was that the reporters didn't just look at the cold hard facts and rank cities sight unseen. No - they visited their Top 30 contenders in order to get a "feel" for the town. To get a picture of the unspoken charm or character that a towns posesses. Those things that residents know and feel in their hearts, yet can't be put into words.

Here's why McKinney, TX makes such a great place to LIVE and RELOCATE to!

  • exceptional school system
  • low real estate prices
  • our "gem of a downtown"! I just LOVE that, since our brokerage resides in one of the restored 19th century buildings they mention!
  • abundant employment opportunities within our own city - eliminating the need for a big commute

Read about it for yourself! It makes me that much more proud to not only get to work in such an awesome city, but live in it as well.

Why do YOU love living in McKinney, TX??
