Jerry’s World Satellite Site to be in Frisco


Welcome to the Real Jerry’s World

Dallas Cowboys in Frisco

Evidently Jerry Jones has outgrown Valley View Ranch as the Cowboys recently announced that  Frisco would be the new home of the Cowboys World Headquarters and Training Facility.

The $115 million development will be located at the northwest corner of Gaylord Pkwy and the Dallas North Tollway just north of Hall Office Park and northwest of Stonebriar Mall on the east side of Gaylord Parkway from the COWBOYS facility when completed.

Dallas Cowboys long known as America’s Team will share their facilities with the Frisco Independent School District which will include a 12,000-seat indoor stadium and two outdoor fields.

Cowboy headquarters and practice facility will sit on 25 acres and will anchor a larger mixed-use development, which will include retail, restaurants, corporate offices and a luxury hotel.

The city-owned facility will cost a minimum $115 million with the Cowboys picking up anything above the $115 million for a “special” facility designed to stand the test of time.

Overall the development is a 91-acre tract development with the remaining 66 acres to encompass 1.2 million square feet of corporate office space, 400,000 square feet of retail and 51,000 square feet of restaurant space.  A luxury hotel with about 480 rooms is also planned for the site.

The project  is expected to have a $23.4 billion economic impact on the city of Frisco over the next 30 years, while bringing 4,500 new jobs and 1.26 billion in tax revenues to the city of Frisco.

Needless to say Frisco is excited to have the No. 1 sports franchise in the world located in their city limits.

But for those not familiar with Frisco the new Cowboys headquarters and training facilities are not the first development Jones has done in Frisco.  Jones’ real estate development firm Blue Star Land started in Frisco-Collin County in 1993 with the 550 acre upscale gated luxury home Starwood subdivision. 

As the story line goes in the link of the previous sentence the net worth of Jones’ Blue Star Land probably exceeds the value of his $1.2 billion AT&T stadium in Arlington.  And that’s Jerry’s World!

3 Day House Sale?


3 Day House Sale?

If you’ve sold or selling your home you probably know what CSS is.

If you don’t – it’s the Centralized Showing System that schedules all your appointments for other agents to show your home.

They track all your appointments and send auto emails to agents that show your property for instant feedback. (if your agent has that feature set up)

You can also send listing announcements about price changes or circumstances to all the agents that have previously shown your property.

Yesterday, I received an announcement for a 3 Day Sale on a Property in Frisco at one of the Stonebriar communities that, Still hasn’t sold…

It’s like a Macy’s 3 Day Sale! No kidding…

We aren’t selling clothes or appliances here, the sale goes like this: $20,000 will be taken off the list price on Friday, Saturday and Sunday – ONLY!

After that the price goes back up, Does that make you want to buy it?

Don’t you think they will take the $20,000 off after Sunday?

YEP! They will.

Better to go ahead and take another cut and leave it, the more inline the price is the better chances of your home selling quicker. Once you give it up you can’t take it back – be curious to see what kind of signage they have for the event. Sellers and agents are getting very creative now, aren’t they?

America’s Fastest Growing Suburbs – Frisco in Top Ten


Congratulations North Texas!

Dr. Pepper Minor League Ballpark – Frisco

On the Forbes top 100 fastest growing suburbs, there were 11 N. Texas cities that made the list.

Frisco came in at Number 7 and Wylie Number 8. These two cities are considered close in to Dallas.

Frisco is just north of Plano and is a very vibrant and well planned city, excellent schools – Minor League Ballpark, Stars hockey center, Stonebriar Mall, Stonebriar Golf Course, Country Club and New Homes …yes plenty of new homes.

The only thing that Frisco needs to complete are its roads and highways to support it’s growth – until then you will have to cope with traffic. Here are growth figures for Frisco for the last 6 years:

2000 – 35299
2006 – 80,499

=128% growth in population

As you see the growth has been explosive – and there is still plenty of room to grow – Frisco around highway 121 is only about 30 miles North of Dallas.
