Parker is a small town located to the east of Plano, Texas and is ideally situated about 20 minutes of Dallas and 45 minutes from Fort Worth.

Don't let the size of the town deceive you! This place has earned a national reputation as one of the best places in the country for employers to do business and for families to live and work.

Throughout much of this century Parker relied on surrounding farms and ranches for its livelihood. By the 1960s, the growth of both Dallas to the south and the success of several large high-technology firms began to make their influence felt on the local economy and city planners began making preparations for the growth they believed was inevitable.

When the U.S. population began its historic shift in the 1970s, nearby Plano welcomed newcomers with open arms and this resulted in added development to the surrounding areas, including Parker. This means Parker has the best of both worlds - a developed suburban area that escapes urban sprawl.

Impressed by the meticulous planning and development of the town and the positive attitude of the local business community, many professionals and executives began moving to Plano and then to the outlying areas, including Parker.

Housing tends to be large and sprawling in the northern areas of the greater Dallas area. The average home built in the last three years has been over 3,000 square feet and are valued at over $200,000. However, these are not the only options available to prospective home owners, as there are older, more established homes in the town that come at a lower price tag; on the other end of the spectrum prospective buyers can choose a large piece of property on which to build their dream home, stables and all!

Along with good employment opportunities comes excellent schools, this region north of Dallas is renowned for the outstanding schools, both public and private. You cannot go wrong in choosing to move and live in Parker!

As if all this were not enough, the seasons here are spectacular, although the summers can be a little warm, the rest of the year is mild, and allows for outdoor activities all year round. You will love Parker, so come on in and join the Parker family!
