Collin County Communities
Collin County is full of great family-friendly communities. Whether you’re looking for a home in a bustling neighborhood or a farmhouse with a lot of acreage, Collin County offers it all. With great school districts, cutting-edge health care facilities and fun year-round activities, we invite you to find the community that you’ll call your Collin County home.
Collin County Activities
There is always something to do in Collin County! Whether it’s taking in a Frisco RoughRiders baseball game, visiting the Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary, watching a concert at the Allen Event Center, or simply biking the miles of trails, you’ll never run out of options.
Children are the future of our community and supporting them is a top priority for Collin County REALTORS®. As part of its commitment to the Children’s Advocacy Center of Collin County, the Collin County Association of REALTORS holds an Annual Holiday Breakfast in which winter coats and clothing are donated. Over the past 15 years, Collin County REALTORS® have donated thousands of articles of winter clothing to ensure that the youngest members of our communities stay safe and warm.
The right to home ownership is something that REALTORS® take very seriously. By working with
The Samaritan Inn homeless shelter in McKinney, Texas, Collin County REALTORS® have furnished homes with furniture, food, and other house goods for residents graduating the shelter. In addition, a recent event by the Collin County Association of REALTORS® provided more than $26,000 to the Inn.
Buying a Home
Whether you’re a first-time home buyer or a seasoned pro, the process of buying a home can be both exciting and nerve-wracking. But, if you have an idea of the process before-hand, you’ll not only know what to expect along the way, but you’ll help ensure that the road leading up to your new home will be a little smoother.
Selling a Home
The process of selling a home can sometimes be confusing. That’s why using a REALTOR® is so important! From deciding whether to have a seller’s inspection, to pricing and staging your home to sell, having the expert guidance of a REALTOR® is a tremendous asset.
Community of the Month
Located 35 miles north of downtown Dallas, Melissa, Texas is “…one of the last cities in Collin County to have a touch of the rural,” says Reed Greer, Mayor of Melissa. According to Greer, Melissa is “…a fast growing and family-friendly community that has a sense of community pride that is focused around the school system.”
Just two exits north of McKinney off of Highway 75, Melissa is a bedroom community that also offers any kind of retail or commercial need within a six to seven minute drive. As a smaller city, Melissa also offers “slower Saturdays,” where kids can go out and play without the fear of continuous traffic streaming down every neighborhood street. If you are looking for a quieter lifestyle that is within reach of a big city, Melissa is the place for you.
