East Dallas MLS Broker Bake Off chair Christina Dewbre shows off a confection as emcee Kevin Caskey holds the live auction.

This is one of those new builds in Little Forest Hills that really does uphold the neighborhood motto: “Keep Little Forest Hills Funky.” This enclave of 1930s and ’40s cottages east of Garland Road and west of Ferguson has been a target for teardowns, with many homes being scraped and replaced as fast as builders can manage it. So it’s refreshing to see a new build that looks just as fun and friendly as the neighbors.
