You'll have no issues in the Preston Hollow area whatsoever. It's also less than 5 miles from Greenhill, which is a great school by the way. A good friend of mine is an administrator there. I would encourage you to consider using a realtor even with a new build, primarily because the builder is not there to consider your best interests but his own of course! The high end real estate business is about relationships and, more often, who you know. I have worked with most of the luxury builders in the area which can often translate to a far smoother transaction process and the best "bang for your buck," as you said.

Preston Hollow is known as one of the wealthiest neighborhoods of Dallas, and Texas. This is where former President and Mrs. Bush will be moving in 2 weeks. Tom Hicks, the owner of the Texas Rangers baseball team lives here as well. This area of Preston Hollow, at Daria Drive and Meaders Lane, will soon be gated thanks to the new residents. :) The Creeks of Preston Hollow is already gated, but is not in the price range you mentioned. So sorry you had that experience! That's horrible. You can talk to the Dallas PD for reassurance, but this is considered a very safe part of town.
Please let me know if we can help further.

That will depend on the price range. You have asked two different questions, one being Preston Hollow and the other being Frisco. You can publicly access the crime stat's for each city on that city's website.
In Frisco, Starwood is considered exclusive and has homes in the $1-2MM range and under.
Also, In Preston Hollow, there are a few build's which have been on the market for quite some time, and likely have motivated builder's ready to sell to an able buyer for a great price! When entering te courtroom, you always want experienced representation, just like when you buy a home, your making the most important decision in your life as an investment, My service's are valuable and they are paid for by the seller.
Why not hire a REALTOR like myself who sales homes everyday, to help you make sure all your questions are answered and know you made the right decision? I care and am here to help!
In response to another response-:) Shaddock creek would be too far north and my husband wouldn't be able to come home for lunch . I think Starwood is as far north as we can go and still enjoy quality of life !
I'll be meeting face to face with some builders this weekend and just getting some ideas. We still have a six month lease on our townhome , but he who is prepared...
It looks like you're getting alot of different opinions on this forum about neighborhoods that weren't part of your original question, and I know that can be overwhelming. If you're planning to buy in the next 4 months or so, you really just need to sit down with a professional, experienced realtor who can guide you through the process and give you some options based on your home buying objectives and personal needs.
There are many areas throughout Dallas, Plano, and Frisco that are highly regarded so I would recommend a personal consultation with a realtor familiar with this luxury market to get your home search off to the right start. As always, it would be my pleasure to assist you and would look forward to the opportunity to work with you.

Thanks for your questions!
Are you set on Frisco? It seems like schools may be important to you from previous questions? Have you considered private schools? Our son attends a private school and we know that where we live while he's in school for the next umpteen years needs to be centralized around that school as we visit it twice a day minimum. :) Or, perhaps, you've asked about schools because of resale value? Not sure.
Starwood is an excellent community that you would probably enjoy. Frisco was also listed as one of the top 100 places to live by Money Magazine, FWIW.
In addition, Shaddock Creek has a gated section off Legacy that begins in the $800's to upwards of $2M. One of the architectural styles behind these gates includes the Mediterranean look featuring Spanish tile roofs and stucco exteriors. Phase II is not gated, but priced ranging from the mid $400's to the mid $700's. The lot size is also larger, which sounds like an important criteria to you.
There are other places in Dallas that have absolutely stunning Mediterranean homes if you're open. We also work with a custom builder who builds and finishes out top notch and will build on your lot. The project manager lives in a gorgeous Med style home that he built.

I think that Starwood is the creme puff of Frisco, second is Chapel Creek then Stonebriar. Starwood has the prime location, all the amenities very close by, large lots (no rubbing elbows with neighbors), a strict architectural committee so you don't end up with cookie cutter homes, trees, trees.
I know you asked about Frisco but if you really want to be in the best neighborhood in the city then you might want to look at Preston Hollow. (President and Mrs. Bush just bought their home there). This area of town is older with lots of trees and wide streets. In the past few years, developers began buying up older home, destroying them and replacing them with grand mini-mansions. This area of town continues to be "hot" and grow in appreciation versus some of the suburban areas.

We can discuss more about your criteria and check out some homes.
A lot of homes in Willowbend were built in the late 80's so yes they're definitely older than those you would find in Starwood,but many are very nicely updated and current inside. Starwood for the most part is less than 10 years old. Honestly, the lot sizes are going to vary in both areas, but there are homes with decent sized yards so it may just take a little more time to find exactly what you want. I would definitely consider Starwood over Stonebriar for better resale in the next 5 years.
I'd be happy to meet with you this Saturday at my office to further discuss your home buying objectives and the type of property that would best suit your needs. Please feel free to call me and we can schedule a suitable time.

Starwood is an impressive area - homes in this subdivision range in price from upper 500k to over a million. If you are looking in a different price range I can certainly direct you to areas that are very desireable as well. If you are in the market for a new home I'd be happy to discuss your needs further. Please feel free to contact me at 469-450-1326 or visit my website at http://BrooksTeam.com. I look forward to hearing from you!
