Hi Brinda,

Thanks for your question. Stoney Hollow does have some beautiful homes, doesn't it?

Here is a good website to check out the schools in Stoney Hollow: http://www.greatschools.net.
Elementary: Hickey
Middle: Bowman
High School: Williams
Sr. High - PESH - Plano East Sr High

You can look up these schools on that website and it gives you the overall ranking by the parents and students that go to the school, the TAKS test scores, ACT test scores, accountability ranking, cultural diversity, and more information like that. As you probably know, schools are ranked as Exemplary, Recognized, Academically Acceptable or Academically Unacceptable. PESH, for example, is rated Academically Acceptable.

You can extrapolate out the demographics of the area by using the school information. The kids that go to the schools there will comprise a good sampling of the families in the area.

We can send you a free report with all the statistical info. you're requesting, if you'd like. :)

As far as crime in Plano, this is a good spot for research: http://www.city-data.com/city/Plano-Texas.html

In respect to appreciation of the homes, homes that sold in Ph 5 of Stoney Hollow about 4-5 years ago sold at $74 per sq. ft. The homes that sold here last year or this year are selling for an average of $82, so they are going up. :)

Let me know how else we can help.

Thanks,
Terri Hayley

Hi Brinda - here are more homes in Stoney Hollow. http://www.janusregroup.com/site/10977. While East Plano is the older part of town, there are areas that are newer. Stoney Hollow is one example. There is also Timber Brook Farms, Timber Brook Estates, and Timber Brook Village. There is also a brand new subdivision over there called Glenwood by Wall Homes and they are building very nice homes at great rates. I've sold over 15 homes with them and can get you a great deal. Please let me know if I can help you with the purchase of your new home.
