Ebby’s McKinney Office manager Gerry Russell had this to say about the recent news:

“There is a reason McKinney is one of the fastest growing communities in the nation it a great place to live. Our community slogan is Unique by Nature and it is. We are a community of golfing opportunities with five major golf courses and/or country clubs; one of the largest historic districts in the State; outstanding private and public schools; and, our community sits on rolling hills with an abundance of greenbelts sprinkled with hike and bike trails.
