i have a young kid and i love the area around russell creek and also the deerfield areas.

which communities do you recommend. I would like to have one which is closer to a park or play area where i can take my lil one.. right now we are focusing only on 75025 zip near mcdermott and coit.

are we missing something.. which communities should we shortlist.. we dont have a timeframe to move. so we can wait if we find the right community..

Those are the no-brainer top choices. OR, should i say MOST-brainer choices, plus, you dont want to be with the commoners, lol.

Hey, if you and your kids are upto the challenge, then go for it. They are the top school areas for sure. And that is exactly why so many new comers are targeting those areas. They also have many nice park and rec centers very popular in the area.

Just little south of deerfield is also robinson/jasper zone and very nice. Right around archgate park. Same w/ area right below that near spring creek and nice park around Daffron school. But of course the Rice zone is tops for brainiacs.

Just make sure you look at plenty of homes and dont fall for the temptations of overbidding beyond your budget or overvaluing homes on offers.

My daughters Robinson Honors Band made it to the State Finals level. They placed first in their area level which encompasses northeast dallas metro and much of east texas. Top 2 bands from each of the 7 areas are competing for the state title for best MS band in Texas.

any idea on how you narrow down a neighborhood. do you just drive by or do you walk in that area in some preferred times? does it equate to tresspassing?

any idea on how ridgeview ranch, Plano homes are? is it very family friendly? does it have an indian population like russell creek . we want to be or border of plano frisco without getting too deep into frisco i.e. beyond el dorado..

I remember when Ridgeview was built and advertised in the Dallas Morning News, etc. It's not a bad neighborhood, but several sections were built by Centex, which didn't have the best reputation for build quality. They are also on the N. side of McDermott, so the FISD schools aren't as highly regarded as PISD schools South of McDermott.

A lot of the phases in Ridgeview look very cheap IMO & are not aging well, considering the community is less than 15 years old.

Forest Creek North has a more custom feel, higher end homes overall & better resale value being in PISD w/better quality builders.

That being said, I do think Ridgeview is a safe, family-friendly area.
