Great News!  Jobs and More jobs seem to be offered in Collin County and in our base town of Allen!  San Jose, California based Cisco Systems Inc. announced earlier this June they will build a 140,000- to 160,000-square foot data center just north of Stacy Rd in Allen on the west side of Central Expressway (75013 Zip Code).  The new facility, which is set to begin construction the first part of next year, will employ over 100 full-time and contract workers.  This news boads well for Allen Real Estate. Cisco will spend $500 million on the new facility and will receive incentives such as tax abatements, assistance with construction of a new road adjacent to their site and a contribution to infrastructure costs related to the project, said Robert Winningham, economic director and CEO of the...

1.  Stage your precious gem of a home Something as little as an odd colored wall of paint in the dining room can steer homebuyers out of your house as quick as you can say "Wait!"  Now the best way to avoid this is to Stage, Stage, Stage.  Sellers with staged homes end up with an average of 6.3% more than those sellers that do not stage their homes.  Plus, staged homes end up selling in half the time!  What seller doesn't like these statistics?  The easiest and most dramatic change includes a fresh and neutral coat of paint.  This will instantly change the look and feel of your home.  Other options include adding plants and greenery, hanging paintings on the walls, changing out fixtures, and adding furniture which utilizes the space better.  I know you are probably thinking, "I don't ha...

Allen real estate can be a very interesting project for you and your family.  As in some areas Allen is growing and in other areas there seems to be a small decline.  However, in the grand scheme of things I think that Allen homes for sale are a great purchase right now.  If you can get the loan for the property I reccomend that you purchase the property.   I also would reccomend that you take the help of one of your Allen Realtors with you.  They will help you and guide you along the grapevine of a real estate purchase.  They are free for you to use and you would be stupid if you didnt use one.  The city of Allen is a fairly new one considering how long Dallas has been around for.  Allen, Tx Real Estate also boasts some great residents that earn a good income.  The median income per re...

Purchase Price - $259,000 Don't let your clients or first time home buyer's miss out on this opportunity in Waterford Trails, located in West Allen. This Darling home is move-in ready and doesn't need one thing changed. It's perfect for those with small children or teenagers. If you're clients are retired, then they'll enjoy the low maintenance of landscaping. The backyard is not the largest, but it provides plenty of room to relax and enjoy the evening sun. If you like privacy, then you'll enjoy not having a neighbor behind you. The street located behind the house is very quite and not a main artery like Alma or Stacy Rd. The current owners have done a wonderful job of keeping this house immaculate. The address is 1916 Palisade, Allen, TX 75013, located in Waterford Trails Phase 1. Bui...

McKinney, TX Spotlight on Yogolution - the newest place in town to get a sweet, healthy and COLD treat! Oh, how I love being the first to find a new hot spot in town. And I really think I'm really on to something here. Like I'm Indiana Jones and I've just discovered a rare hidden jewel... What is it? YOGOLUTION! Located just South of the McKinney/Allen border on Hwy 121, tucked into the new shopping strip that faces Lifetime Fitness, Yogolution's modern sign subtley calls out, "Try Me". And so I did. My husband and 22 month old son, Gavin, made our way over to the new spot right after a butt-kicking of a Spin class at Lifetime Fitness. And what better way to replenish the 600 calories we just burned? A frozen, sweet treat! And while they didn't have the exact calorie and nutritional con...

I have been showing a lot of homes to buyers the past couple of weeks in the Allen area.  My buyers who were looking for a newer home (newer meaning the home was built in 2000 or newer) and under $175,000.  My buyers were competing against multiple offers 75% of the homes my buyers looked at either went under contract the day we looked at them or there were multiple offers on the homes when we submitted our offer.  Allen has become a really strong market right now under $175,000.  The first time home buyer tax credit along with the strong schools in Allen have really helped the area out.   I listed a home in the Morningside subdivision and we got the home under contract in just 6 days! So, if you are thinking of selling your home in the Allen area OR if you are wanting to purchase a hom...

It's hard to believe that we're almost to the Fourth of July. Where oh where has the year gone? On June 27thAllen will be one the first local city to celebrate our Nation's Birthday with it's all day spectacular Allen USA event. The festivities begin at noon on Saturday the 27th at Celebration Park, Allen's 106 acre community park. Since 1995 when Allen first started their largest event it's only grown larger and larger with an estimated 65,000 people attending the lively, fun event. The best part of Allen USa, besides all the attractions, entertainment and the grand fireworks show, is that admission and parking are FREE! In our current economy, what's better than being able to enjoy an event like this for FREE?  With the expected crowds the City highly recommends using the free shuttle...

Wow, it's spring time in Allen. The weather is getting warmer, last weekend not withstanding. The trees and lawns are turning green, however mine are still mostly weeds (I'm working on it)! And then the realization hit me. Schools out in a little over two months. A quarter of the year is already gone! In two months time I'll have a high school graduate (one who finally got a job, thanks Bill from Saxby's Coffee) and a Junior at Allen High. Good Gravy I'm getting old. I don't have to worry about summertime avtivities to keep my kids busy but many of you do. I'd like to make a suggestion to investigate all the wonderful programs that the City of Allen Parks and Recreation department makes available to our community. Starting with the annual Eggcellent Family Adventure this coming Saturday...

I couldn't be more excited to announce that my home church, Cottonwood Creek Baptist Church, is hosting an Avalon concert on February 22. They will also be with us in worship that morning! This is just one reason I am proud to call CCBC my home church. Cottonwood Creek Baptist Church is located just across McKinney/Allen city lines on 121 in Allen, TX. What first drew me to CCBC was the incredible children's ministry. My son, then 18 months, enjoyed attending church and preschool there. We joined in 2003, and 6 years plus another little boy later, we are still calling CCBC our home. If you have been searching for a Collin County church to call home, then I would encourage you to attend a service and see if Pastor John Mark Caton speaks to you like he does me.
