You’re Seeing The Inside Pictures First – ...

Visiting our site frequently can pay off if you’re in the market to buy a home in Collin County.  You’ll find our listings are often posted on our site days, and sometimes even weeks, before they hit the MLS.  This beautiful single story home with pool on a one acre cul-de-sac lot has just been listed.  It’s located in Lovejoy ISD, one of 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 …

How Do You Tell Someone There’s Little to No Val...

Imagine you’re a homeowner in Lucas, Tx on a really nice 8-10 acre tract of land. You’ve raised your family there, added square footage to the home, and done some upgrades. The home is about 30 years old and you’re finally ready to sell. So in walks Tom  and tells you he thinks there’s very little value in your home, but there’s some great news too. …

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. I've always thought this was a very classy and attractive home even when it had it's prior composite roof.  I just love the "hill country" look.  The seller's beautiful, new standing seam roof completed the look. ...

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 ...

2017 Mid-Year Lovejoy ISD Agent Production

We still have half a year and many, many Lovejoy sales to go, but at mid-year, Tom’s more than three times ahead of his closest competition in Sold Volume and has about 8% of the entire Lovejoy market listed by volume.  Who knows what the rest of the year will bring, but if this holds up, it will be Tom’s 17th consecutive year to …

Three Sales and One New Home in Title

When I was in college, for some reason I remember a marketing course where we discussed the most popular words used when naming residential streets and apartment complexes.  One of those words was “Oak”. This week we had three sales, a lot on Red Oak (which is in Oak Meadows), a home sale on Oak Brook, and another home sale on Oakwood Trail in Oakwood …

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 …

265 Bee Caves in Lucas Sells

Sometimes we have to fight tooth and nail to get a home closed and other times they are easy.  This one was easy because the home was priced right, well cared for, and both the buyer and seller were reasonable during the transaction.  It was a win/win, the kind we always like.  We represented the seller of the home and Erin Hickman, our top …
