Prosper was a small rural town on Preston Road (SH 289) in North Texas about 6 mi (9.7 km) north of Frisco, but in recent years – true to its name – it has prospered. Prosper has maintained a spacious country feel while developing into an upscale suburb, with rolling terrain, many trees and large single-family-home lots. Prosper is growing rapidly in terms of new home building (single family houses in the $250,000 to $3,000,000 + range). In addition to a long-time retail filling station, in 2004 Prosper saw its second and third retail establishments arrive: a Sonic restaurant, and an Exxon On the Run station. Since 2004, Prosper has added a Palios, CVS, Ernestos, Subway and many other establishments. The Gates of Prosper is a luxury $500 million dollar Retail Development set to start construction in 2014.
Prosper High School cost $113.5 million to construct and is 590,000-square-feet, complete with a medical tech lab, a restaurant-worthy kitchen, a greenhouse, a broadcast studio and an indoor football practice facility.
Prosper is home to numerous full-service equestrian farms.
Each May, Prosper Founders Fest celebrates the history, people and arts. The event combines the Prosper Fire Department's IBCA-sanctioned Barbecue Cookoff, a 5K race through the Prosper area, an art show and music festival and a Sunday Family Fellowship. The Sunday event is unique in that 80% of Prosper families attend local churches. The Family Fellowship is a once-a-year opportunity for the Prosper community celebrate with music, kite-flying and picnics.

"Trenton was a godsend when we desperately needed help. We were first time home buyers we absolutely no clue what we were doing, but Trenton stuck with us and walked us through every step. We had a house that we wanted even though it wasn't in his area of operations he still help secured it for us and all the things we wanted he got it done for us. He fought the fights that needed to be fought and won. He was always available to us at anytime and everyday. I cannot thank him enough for helping me and my family get the home of our dreams."
