McKinney Real Estate
McKinney, Texas Was Voted #1 Place To Live In America By Money Magazine (2014)
Underlying McKinney’s homey Southern charm is a thoroughly modern city. The area is a hotbed for growth-industry jobs. Raytheon recently brought a 3,600-employee division to town, and companies in green energy, aviation, and medical services have also moved to the region. Other Fortune 500 companies are a 15- to 45-minute commute away.
Career and college prep are big in McKinney’s schools. AP courses start in middle school, and high schoolers can get internships in a range of industries. Technology is central, with all levels of education enjoy the city’s investment in high-tech classroom upgrades.
The historic downtown houses a mix of art galleries, boutiques, and farm-to-table restaurants, as well as basics like a butcher, shoe repair, and farm-supplies stores. You get culture and more country charm for less money than what you’d find in Dallas.
