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 …

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 …

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 ...

Zillow’s in the Hot Seat Again

I may be wrong, but I think Zillow is slowly entering into a fight for its very life.  I’m certainly not a Zillow fan and believe they have hurt our industry with bogus Zestimates and selling advertising to agents who know nothing about the homes they appear next to.  

2017 Mid-Year Lovejoy ISD Agent Production

This Past Week Was Very Busy For Us – New Listin...

This was a very busy week for us.  Here are our new listings and sales, and I’ll follow with another post on our listings going into title. People sometimes ask if we sell homes outside of Allen, Fairview, Lucas, and Parker.  We absolutely do and have sold homes as far away as Lake Whitney.  We listed, professionally marketed, and sold the following two homes. …

1040 Hart Road in Fairview is now in Title

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. With Fairview lot prices in the $450’s in the newer, ultra high end developments …

Easter Weekend and Real Estate

Did you know there are two real estate related timelines associated with Easter weekend? First, many Realtors will tell you this weekend marks the “official” start of the selling season although I’m not sure I agree with that.  In my opinion, the selling season starts when things start warming up after a cold winter and quite often, that’s early March.  We already have $22 million closed and …
