Why Plano?

In 1994, Plano was named an All-American City. By 2000, the population grew to just over 222,000, making it one of Dallas's largest suburbs. It's great schools and quiet neighborhoods continued to gain momentum, and by the 2020 census, the population had increased to slightly over 285,000. It is now the ninth-largest city in Texas and the 72nd largest city in the United States.

With the population increase, there has been a flurry of new development. Homes have increased in price, but the job market is hot and most residents in the Plano suburb make well above the national average.
