Does the city have everything you need? Or is there another community that will help you connect with family and live the active lifestyle you love?
“When we talk to our new residents who move from Dallas, that’s really what it comes down to for many of them,” says Colleen Aldstadt, residential marketing director for Craig Ranch in McKinney. She has worked in the McKinney area since 1999.
She says grandparents want to live near their grandchildren, but in a home that fits their needs, not the needs of a growing family. And they want to live in a community that provides social opportunities and ready access to shopping, dining and travel.
That’s why master-planned communities like Craig Ranch – with elegant, maintenance-free homes for grandparents and neighborhoods full of kids and excellent schools close by for families – have lured so many people.
There are luxury homes overlooking TPC Craig Ranch golf course and just down the walking trail to the Cooper Fitness Center and Spa. Downtown Dallas and DFW are a short drive away.
Christy Berry, senior vice president with Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty, says it’s all part of a trend toward homeowners wanting more choices when it comes to finding a home for the next stage of their lives.
“There’s an openness about choosing a home based on your lifestyle needs and your specific situation,” she says. “It’s about finding a home that lets you live a simple, joyful life.”
