Blackland Prairie Raptor Center Fundraiser

If you’re making a contribution to today’s North Texas Giving Day, there are many, many worthy causes.  I wish we could donate to all of them, but since we can’t, we’re going to keep our donation closer to home.

691 Glenwood Circle in Fairview Sells

This is the second time we’ve sold this home. The first time was fourteen years ago and back then, it sold in a reasonable amount of time, maybe 3 months.  However this time it took us a year and two months and another agent had it listed for at least 6 months before we took the listing.  So why did it take so long to sell …

Lovejoy ISD Ties for the Top School District in Texas

I’ve always called Lovejoy ISD, Highland Park ISD, and Carroll ISD “The Big Three” of Texas school districts.  Not because of their size, of course.  In fact, they’re all smaller districts.  The reason is these three always finish at or near the top in performance by the Texas Education Agency. However, this is the first time I can recall Lovejoy finishing above both HP …

1301 Red Oak Trail in Fairview is Now in Title

It didn’t take long for this gorgeous Fairview estate home to go under contract.  We had it as a “pocket listing” which means it was not on the MLS.  The sellers preferred a more tightly controlled marketing plan rather than placing the home on the MLS.  They hoped our reputation of selling estate homes like this would pay off with fewer showings and highly …

1450 Snider Ln in Lucas Closes

Residential real estate is a funny business.  Not “ha ha” funny, but strange funny.  Sometimes we have listings we really think will sell quickly and for some reason, they languish on the market. We don’t know why.  We have several like that right now.  We’re scratching our heads wondering why they haven’t sold already. Other times we have listings we think will take months …

Lovejoy ISD Soars with Highland Park and Southlake!

Schooldigger is known as an unbiased and well respected resource for school ratings in Texas.  They’ve just announced this year’s results and not surprisingly, Lovejoy ISD (which is comprised of Fairview, Lucas, and a small portion of Allen) is ranked #3 among public school districts in the entire state of Texas. The reason I say “not surprisingly” is because Lovejoy is always right up …
