Bowl while it blows in the basement of Champ d'Or!

I’m not talking about showing homes, I mean, where did you run for safety when the tornado sirens started blaring?

I was out driving, looking at homes — OMG I’ve got the scoop on 4511 Watauga coming up, Jeeze Louise 13,000 square feet and another double-level closet! What is it with these two story master closets? My daughter texts me that there are tornadoes, my husband tells me everyone at Presbyterian has gone to the basement!

So I drive home to our tornado closet, stopping to warn every yard man I could! There were two men in a tree, chopping wood, and I thought, my God, they will be blown away! Our yard men were on the mowers with ear protectors on, I had to flag them down and drag them into our garage while I made room in the storm closet! The way it is now, our junk will survive a tornado while we are blown away!

I hope others of you were in more elegant locations. Like Doris Jacobs: she was lunching at the Mansion, and everyone ran down to the Mansion basement for cover. (The wine cellar is down there, too, hmmm.) Remind me to schedule lunch with Doris at the Mansion or Fearings next time a storm rolls into town.

Doris Jacobs was named Allie Beth Allman & Associates #1 Top Individual Producer for 2011 out of 300 agents (!!!) at last week’s Awards Banquet at the Dallas Country Club! And may I add: here are two of the most beautiful women in Dallas real estate!

It is not in MLS, but I’ve heard that Troy is floating the idea of selling the family homestead on Highland Drive now that Rhonda has moved out and up to Preston Hollow. And lest you think he’s smoking something other than brisket on the patio in this market, let me tell you there have already been showings, several showings. Yes indeed. What a home and sale that would be. I wonder who the hip-pocket agent is… I’d guess Doris Jacobs, who was named ABA’s #1 Top Individual Producer. (She does it without a team!) And I wonder how much he would be asking? Let’s see, there are two lots,¬† a total of 1.20 acres approximately, that’s 63,034 square feet plus in Highland Park overlooking Turtle Creek? The home is over 11,000 square feet and the newly constructed cabana is over 1300. And you know the finish-out must be phenomenal.¬† I have the flu, it hurts my head to guess…

Update on 3/23/11: One in the know has advised me that Troy Aikman’s house on Highland Drive doesn’t overlook Turtle Creek but a branch of Turtle Creek called Hackberry Creek by the locals and Google Maps. I apologize for the error.
