East Plano Named Among Best DFW Neighborhoods

Although the results are subjective and everybody has individual preferences and opinions regarding what some of DFW’s coolest neighborhoods are, it’s still always fun to take a close look at the Dallas Morning News’ annual ‘Best Neighbohorhood’ rankings, which were just recently announced.

Just a few short days ago we highlighted West Plano for once again taking home the top spot in 2016, and if that wasn’t enough, East Plano has claimed the title of being Dallas-Fort Worth’s 3rd best neighborhood, trailing only the Colin County city of Allen, and of course it’s counterpart across town, West Plano.

Downtown Dallas Real Estate For Sale`

For those of us who work in the DFW real estate industry and are around it on a day-in, day-out basis, the trend that more Dallas-area residents are wanting to move to the city’s urban core is of little-to-no surprise.
