411 Windsor Court in Fairview For Sale

We’ve just listed a very nice single story home in Fairview at 411 Windsor Court.   It’s a nice size for Fairview and so much more affordable than the new homes coming out of the ground with an average price of $1 Million.  Great Lovejoy schools and kids can walk across the street to the original Lovejoy Elementary.  Nice pool setting and big gameroom upstairs …

1361 Red Oak Trail in Oak Meadows of Fairview

We are almost sold out in Fairview's gorgeous Oak Meadows.  There are four homes currently under construction and two more to start soon.  We have two lots left, and that's it.  This will be one of Fairview's premier custom home communities, there's no question about that.  And kids will attend Lovejoy ISD, one of the top rated school districts in the entire state of ...

1080 Hart Rd in Fairview is Now in Title

This 8 acre tract of land is located right down the street from prestigious Tranquility Farms and abuts Willow Point Estates.  There’s an old home on it, but the value is all to the land.   Larger tracts like this don’t come onto the market very often, especially those located in Lovejoy ISD, one of the finest school districts in the state of Texas.  You feel …

Lunch with Fairview Mayor Darion Culbertson

I always enjoy meeting with Fairview’s Mayor Darion Culbertson.  He’s certainly passionate about Fairview and always happy to share what’s going on. Mayor Culbertson has led the way as Fairview’s grown from a sleepy little town not a lot of people knew about to what it is today.  I call it “a small town with a large presence”.  He’s in the last two years …

Lovejoy ISD Traditions

First Week of School I often talk about the wonderful ratings Lovejoy ISD earns every year from the Texas Education Agency (top three school district this year for all complete grade 1-12 districts).  There are a lot of forces working behind the scenes to make that possible, not the least of which is the awesome parent participation and interaction with the administration.  Some of ...

Fairview, Lucas, and Lovejoy ISD Agent and Office Mark...

Many years ago when I made the jump from commercial real estate to residential, I was surprised at how agents said either they or their company was number one this, or number one that.  It seemed like everyone was number one and I didn't know who to believe. I was so green, I didn't even know the MLS keeps track of every agent and ...

Two Nice Lots For Sale in Fairview’s Fabulous Tr...

The development sold out some time ago so the only lots left are re-sales.  Take a look at some of the homes in Tranquility Farms and you’ll see why it’s such a premier development. Tranquility …

Lovejoy ISD Agent And Office Market Share Mid-Year Rep...

 With exactly half a year remaining, Tom’s sales volume to date is more than three times his closest competition.  He also has an impressive 8% of the entire Lovejoy market listed by volume.

2017 Mid-Year Lovejoy ISD Agent Production

Lovejoy Announces Student Fees for Extracurricular Act...

A Message from the Superintendent Dear Lovejoy Community: Budget Approved – Fees are Lowered Around midnight last night, our Board of Trustees approved the 2017-2018 budget.  It was an incredibly difficult task because the Board was focused on protecting the Lovejoy experience each of your children has in classrooms district-wide.  The challenge came from the Texas Legislature’s unwillingness or inability to pass a new …

Lovejoy ISD is in the Crosshairs For Losing State Fund...

Here’s the Story and it’s not good news for Lovejoy ISD or Frisco ISD.  Ted Moore, our Lovejoy superintendent met with several of the Lovejoy ISD Realtor ambassadors a couple of months ago and told us it was a possibility.  This is one of the reasons Lovejoy is recruiting non-district paying students and has also set up a tuition based Pre-K program.

Two Fairview/Lovejoy Home Sales This Week

We’ve just closed on two more Fairview and Lovejoy ISD homes.  The first property shown below is a good example of what’s happening in Fairview and Lucas.  Land has become so expensive, more and more older homes being taken down for new construction.  That’s what happened on this property. Erin Hickman and I were flying the lot for our site when we met the …

This is our third listing in a row to go into title within a day or two of hitting the MLS, but this one’s a little different from the others.  The first two were traditional newer generation homes in Fairview with Lovejoy ISD, but this home is basically being purchased on land value.

471 Oakwood Trail, Fairview Closed Today

This is quite possibly the most iconic home in Fairview.  It’s on a phenomenal corner lot with huge trees and the home sits high on top of a hill.  You look up there and it’s just so impressive.  And from up there looking down to the trees, circular driveway and street is just as dramatic.  It’s the home many publications use to promote Fairview. It …

Say Goodbye to Another Fairview/Lovejoy ISD Tract Land

Fairview is a small town only about 9 square miles in size and with all the recent development, there just aren't many tracts of raw land left.  This tract of land has always intrigued me.  I've looked at it on Google maps countless times and wondered with such a premier location, wedged between two high end custom home developments, when someone would finally figure out a ...

Texas Monthly Magazine Gives High Marks to Both Allen ...

I've always referred to Lovejoy, Highland Park, and Southlake Carroll as "The Big Three".  Not because of their size, but they're always the public school districts leading the rest of the pack when it comes to quality education.  These aren't private schools, but they're as close to private as you'll ever get in a public district. We move families out of Highland Park every ...

Proceeds from this successful …

Something You Don’t See Every Day

This is something you don’t see every day. I was driving to one of our listings in Fairview eastbound on Stacy Rd when I saw this large cable dangling in the middle of the street. This is the intersection of Greenville Ave and Stacy Rd. You might recognize the 7-11 on the left. No police cars, no warning, no nothing.  Very odd. By the way, …
