Perhaps it’s time to get back to the basics. At the heart of the real estate industry, it’s the people that matter. Yes, the homes are vital, too, but buying real estate is complicated and sometimes frustrating, and having a solid relationship with the people behind the transaction is everything.

Nora Ling Lane, a Executive Vice President of Allie Beth Allman & Associates, knows this. It was ingrained upon her by her mother, who was also a consummate professional. So it’s obvious why we’ve chosen Lane as our High Caliber Agent, sponsored by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans.

10731 Bridge Hollow Court facadeWe love a livable home, especially a livable luxury home.

For those of you unfamiliar with that subdivision, it’s between Strait Lane and Inwood Road, just south of Royal Lane. Yep, the honeypot of CEOs, sports stars, and those with extremely discerning taste. (more…)

Georgian Bryan Place IHOTW

We’ve found the perfect home for anyone that longs for the era of gracious lawn parties, jazz drifting through the air, and the ever-present champagne glass in hand. Wait, that’s what the CandysDirt.com staff longs for. Wonder if we pool our resources …

His words reflected the excitement of the “Roaring Twenties” just as this gorgeous home reflects the gracious lifestyle of a bygone era. Lucky for us, the era may be gone, but homes like this still allow us to capture the essence of that lifestyle.5422 Gaston Avenue
