Sure, Conor Riley was raised in California, but we won’t hold it against this fast-rising star at Dave Perry-Miller and Associates. We absolutely adore Riley, who is wise beyond his years, sharp as a tack, and fast with a smile, and he’s a great surfer, to boot!
In fact, he reminds us a lot of Jeff Lindigrin of Great Western Home Loans, as both of these great businessmen focus on customer experience in a very fast-paced market. Jeff takes great care as a lender, as he should. Of course, every sale should have a lender that works just as hard to get a great deal as their Realtor. What has your lender done for you lately? Find out what you’re missing by contacting Jeff Lindigrin with Great Western Home Loans today.
Just in time for Vacation Home Week, we found this very favorite listing of our’s in Watercolor, Florida, one of our very favorite second home spots, on the bargain table. This is like when you find a Firenzie handbag on sale at Neimans — you know it doesn’t belong there, but it’s there and reduced and you snap it up faster than you can locate your credit card. That’s exactly what you need to do with this house. If you know anything about Watercolor and the panhandle Gulf coast of Florida, you will know what a steal this home is.
Located in the heart of Watercolor, 401 Western Lake Drive, less than a five minute walk to the beach, this home is now less than $3 million! (more…)
When I saw this house last weekend, Dallas was freshly moistened from that Saturday-afternoon rainfall that kept our temperatures more Maine-like than Texas-in-August. So maybe that’s why I thought I was in another place, like a secret garden. 8240 Stony Creek was not yet in MLS, and had the most incredible back yard I have seen in ages. Listed with the cuteness that is Shannon Saunders at Clay Stapp & Company. The home is located East of Central in that hot hot Claremont ‘hood. I had never heard of Stony Creek. So over I went and what I saw blew my mind: (more…)
Alleged Thief Stan “Dan” Tucker also goes by Tim Allen.
We sounded the alarm
about Stan “Dan” Tucker, a middle-aged man who is targeting open houses and owner-marketed properties. He comes in and heads straight for the medicine cabinet, stealing prescription medication while touring homes. Realtor Lydia Player
tipped us off that this guy has been all over North Texas and Oklahoma, touring homes and snatching things from people’s bathrooms and bedrooms.
“His mode of operation is to pose as a potential home buyer. He claims to be looking for a property for his son, or himself or something like that. Currently it looks like he is targeting homes that are for sale by owner. Security is a major issue when selling a home without an agent and he is proof. Letting a stranger in your home is risky business for a homeowner.
Based on the calls and emails I’ve gotten, he has robbed homes from Waco to Stillwater, Oklahoma. This slippery snake is good at what he does and seems to always avoid getting caught in the act. Yesterday, I got a call from a homeowner in Lake Highlands where he did his usual routine.”
But who is this guy? And why is he stealing?
This cottage at Long Cove would be a fabulous getaway for a family!
Cedar Creek Lake is a popular go-to location for North Texans who need a little time by the water. It’s a perfect spot to while away a three-day weekend, take the boat out, maybe paddleboard a little. For us, you can’t do much better than Long Cove, a fantastic community of gorgeous luxury properties that make lakefront living a breeze.
“Long Cove was made with family in mind. Beyond the homes and amenities, the heart of our community is focused on reconnecting with those closest to you. Forge meaningful conversations and create lasting memories without any distractions,” said sales director Josh Ellis. “We wanted a place where you can escape close to home and build relationships with new families like yours. We’ve created a haven where you can be a kid with your kids and let the family feel safe to run free, as you once did.”
Doesn’t that sound dreamy?
The thing about buying a home from a super sports star like, say, Jose Calderon, is that when a guy has a #28 million contract, you just know he’s not going to skimp out on anything in his home. Like, those light fixtures are definitely not from the Home Depot, so sir.
I present to you the magnifique Santa Barbara styled palace of Jose Calderon, former Dallas Maverick who is now playing for the New York Knicks. Too bad he has to unload this vavavavoom at 3417 Villanova in University Park. Listed for a mere $2,495,000, this California delight is marketed by Jamie Adams, agent to the sports star world, at Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International real estate. (more…)
