We’re Now #1 in Allen Too!

As of today, Kelly Pearson is now the #1 agent by sold volume in the entire Allen market.  I’m not just talking about just our Keller Williams office of 240 agents either.  I’m talking ALL of Collin County with its 7,774 agents! I knew we’d eventually penetrate the Allen market when we first committed to it several years ago, but I have to admit, …

5140 Pond Bluff, Fairview, Tx is Now In Title

This is a very impressive Fairview acreage home and we had a feeling it would go under contract pretty quickly.  Of course, we really never know for sure until we get these homes out there for people to see.  This market is still rocking.

12 More Homes in Title This Week – The Craziness...

Another VERY busy week.  We had 12 more properties go into title and two sales. Some might think all we do is list homes because our listing inventory is so extensive, but representing buyers is a huge part of our yearly sales volume.  With six of the properties you see below, we’re representing the buyers. We have more signed listings coming, but the sellers …

1410 Caman Park Now Under Contract

This beautiful single story home was on the market for only 17 days.  Homes in this price point typically don’t go under contract this quickly, at least at this early in the year, so this is just another sign of a very promising selling season ahead of us. 1410 Caman Park, Lucas, Tx

1661 Goose (Lucas) and 1714 Legendary Reef Way (Wylie)...

1661 Goose Lane was a very, very difficult transaction.   It’s deals like these that make us really appreciate when a sale goes smoothly. We represented the Seller and had to overcome one hurdle after another.  Some of the issues had nothing to do with either the buyer or the seller.  We were never really sure it was going to close until the very end.  …

A Kind Testimonial From a Valued Client

When we moved from Dallas to Fairview almost 15 years ago we quickly learned that Tom Grisak was the dominant residential realtor in the Lucas/Fairview and Lovejoy ISD markets.  After several years living in Fairview I found the perfect property for sale in Lucas which coincidentally was the personal home of Tom, his wife Rhonda and their son. I made an offer and we quickly …

Check Your Roof Today For Snow

If you live in the south (where we don’t get a lot of snow), today’s a good day to check your attic insulation.  Walk outside and see how much snow has melted off your roof.  Compare it to your neighbor’s roofs.  If your roof is bare and your neighbor’s are still capped in snow, it means you are losing too much heat from your home into the …

1155 Christian Lane and 146 Estelle Lane in Lucas Both...

We closed on two very nice Lucas homes with Lovejoy ISD on Friday.  This is the second time we’ve sold both of these homes. Those who know me have heard me say so many times how special the home shown just below is to Rhonda and me.  We started out in Lucas in this home 18 or so years ago.  We raised our son there …

As Predicted (and Hoped For) 146 Estelle in Lucas is N...

We’ve all been hearing rumblings of a “market shift” for some time.  That is, a shift in leverage from the seller’s to the buyer’s side.  We’re a little nervous about it but then again agents are always nervous about the market.  Is there really a shift going on?  If so, has it started and if so, how long until we really start to see …

146 Estelle Ln in Lucas, Tx Now For Sale

Every so often, we get a listing on a home we think will sell quickly.  We’re always cautious about saying that because if it doesn’t, we have mud on our face.  But we’re going to roll the dice on this home and speculate it will be our next property to go into title.  This home will appeal to active buyers for quite a few …

Lucas, Texas, a Little Bit Country and a Little Bit Ci...

Here’s why I love living in Lucas.  What a treat to enjoy this open land, farms, and ranches along with the animals that come with them like emu’s, dogs, guineas, roosters, cattle and of course horses.  We saw these guys yesterday near our home.  Then I had a business luncheon at Glorias Restaurant in Fairview.  It took me 8 minutes to get there from …

146 Estelle Ln in Lucas Now For Sale

We're really excited to share several new listings, two of which are not on the MLS yet.  The first of the three, pictured below, is one of them.

Are We Heading Into A Market Shift?

After 6 straight years of a solid real estate market here in the Dallas area, we agents are a little spoiled.  Many believe the market is just going to continue booming and there’s nothing to worry about.  But there also many real estate analysts who’ve been predicting a market shift from the seller side to the buyer side for some time now.  Every cycle …

Know When To Back Away From A Listing Opportunity

Last week I was asked to interview for a listing.  I knew it was a beautiful, heavily wooded lot which is just impossible to find anymore in this area.  But because the home was set behind a stand of trees, I never saw it going up.  I just assumed on a lot like that in that neighborhood, it would be at least an $800k-$900K home. When …
