The Picture That Sold a Home

Many years ago, I had a beautiful home listed in one of the premier Fairview subdivisions.  I showed it to a couple who really seemed to like it.   Let me rephrase that.  Mrs. Buyer seemed to really like the home and Mr. Buyer was noncommittal.  I never could figure out if he didn’t like the home or liked it and just wasn’t showing his …

“Let There Be Less Light” From My Fairview...

Here’s a Dallas Morning News article about Fairview written in 2004.  I thought about it after we attended the last Fairview Planning and Zoning meeting.  They were discussing the ordinance limiting lighting to 20,000 lumens per acre to preserve the dark nights. Several things stood out about this old article.  First, the article said there were 3,500 people in Fairview.  Now there are about …

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 ...

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 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.

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, …
