Is Frisco a good area?

The houses look nice, but they don't seem to have pretty small yards.

Also how are the schools in that area?

Lots of posts here about Frisco. Use the search function to find them.
Some people love Frisco, others don't. Depends on what you are looking for - job location/ budget/ school needs, etc.

If you're the poster who will be working in downtown Dallas and Irving, cross Frisco (and Allen, McKinney, most of Plano, etc) off your list RIGHT NOW!! The drives are brutal and the tolls are expensive.

Is Frisco to Dallas a reasonable commute?

My work in Irving would be on weekends, when there is not too much traffic.

Frisco is a good area if you work in N. Dallas and want a newer large home. For DT Dallas commute its too far unless you can avoid rush hour and even then its going to be a long one and probably with tolls. Perhaps you should look near Copell if you want a suburban location. I believe their commute to DT will best Frisco's and its near your Irving location with great schools, better ones than Frisco I am told

You meant to say "they DO" seem to have small yards correct? Frisco is probably the worst suburb choose if you want a yard and a reasonable commute to Downtown.

Frisco to downtown Dallas is 60+ minutes, both ways, and between $6-8/day in tolls.

Frisco would work but its far from Dallas and there are alot of (IMO) better choices closer in. More costly, maybe not has new, but better for resale and not on Toll roads potentially.
