When architect and city councilman Vernon Smith built this Oak Cliff home in 1949, much of the features were revolutionary for the time. A double carport worked well for the growing number of two-car households. The windows and lines were clean and angular. The floorplan allowed for movement throughout the space with relative ease.

And that design, while revolutionary 67 years ago, is perfect for today’s family. Thanks to sellers David and Becca Holt, both of whom are interior designers, the functional and aesthetically pleasing design of this home is updated with carefully chosen materials that stay true to its history while looking to the future.

We’re thrilled to feature this listing from David Griffin Realtor Crystal Gonzalez as our High Caliber Home of the Week sponsored by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans. If you find yourself smitten with this midcentury modern home in North Oak Cliff, call Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans today to sail through your transaction from bid to closing.

Once upon a time, a clever architect and a talented interior designer bought a 1927 Prairie cottage in Winnetka Heights and, of course, they completely transformed it. Now a lucky buyer can reap the benefits of their hard work and nab this move-in ready cutie at 110 N. Edgefield in this hotter than hot neighborhood if they move very fast. (more…)

GetMedia-1When we came across this 1955 ranch reborn as a Hill Country modern, we were intrigued. It takes a savvy, experienced contractor to remodel a home to this level of sophistication. Guess who whipped 7242 Midbury Drive, into shape?

David Griffin B+W

Sure, we know a lot of real estate agents in North Texas by how much they sell, what addresses they’ve listed, and what brokerages they have worked with, but we don’t often get to focus on who they are, what they’re passionate about, and what inspires them.

Today we launch our High Caliber Agent series, which takes a more introspective look at some of the best real estate agents the our region has to offer. These agents don’t just focus on closings and contracts, but instead treasure and appreciate the people who make the business.

Our first High Caliber Agent sponsored by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans is none other than David Griffin. This broker has done wonders highlighting the culture and people that make the neighborhoods both he and his agents serve so special. If you’re looking for an agent who will serve you far beyond the transaction, look no further than David Griffin, today’s High Caliber Agent sponsored by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans.

penthouse turtle creek condoThe prestige of a Turtle Creek address is well earned at 3225 Turtle Creek Blvd. Apt 1621. This penthouse-level two-story condo has views of Lee Park and Turtle Creek from the balcony, and it looks like a model: totally chic and perfectly staged.

This is a 1-1 with an additional half bathroom, 917 square feet, built in 1998. It has numerous recent updates and luxe amenities, from artist-designed tile on the balcony to a custom backsplash in the kitchen and a glass art deco panel in the entry the owner believes was in a 1930’s hotel owned by Trammell Crow.

This beauty, our Tuesday Two Hundred, was listed April 7 by Jack Carter with David Griffin & Company for $247,500. Monthly HOA fee are $495.
