We do love a good modern home. Clean lines, open spaces, right angles, and striking textures stimulate our senses and inspire us. That’s exactly what our High Caliber Home of the Week sponsored by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans does. This home in sought-after Idlewild Acres is gorgeous from the curb, and it only gets better inside.

S. Edgefield HCHOTW

If you’ve been ogling over those cute tiny homes that are popping up everywhere, but you’re not sure if a life on wheels or in the boonies for you, this listing from David Griffin & Company Realtor Bart Thrasher shows that you can live itty bitty in the city.

Bart, who lives in Winnetka Heights with his wife, Karen, and son, Henry, knows a thing or two about good construction. Bart is a contractor and Karen is an incredibly talented architect, and with all that know-how between them they founded Thrasherworks, a boutique architecture and design firm based right in North Oak Cliff. And in Bart’s opinion, this property is perfect for those who believe in the gospel of minimalism and the zen of tidying up.

No wonder this unique Craftsman in Winnetka Heights is our High Caliber Home of the Week sponsored by Lisa Peters at Caliber Home Loans. While this listing is in contingency (the buyers are waiting to sell their current home), it doesn’t hurt to be prepared should it go back on the market. Call Lisa Peters at Caliber Home Loans today to get your pre-approval in line so you can put your highest and best offer in on this tiny home should you get a second chance!

647 Bizerte Avenue Back Fountain

If you need more proof about why Oak Cliff is poised to be the next scorching hot area in Dallas real estate, I present this midcentury split-level in Wynnewood. This is such a great opportunity for someone who wants to customize a home to their taste with minimal effort involved. It doesn’t hurt that this listing from David Griffin & Company agent Paul Kirkpatrick sits right on a pond with a beautiful fountain. For a lot and view like this in the Park Cities or Preston Hollow, you’d end up paying closer to $800,000 and upwards, and that’s just for the lot. 

But here in Wynnewood, you can score 647 Bizerte Avenue for the bargain price of $485,000. Even more incredible is that this home is priced at almost $10,000 below the DCAD appraisal of $494,230.

647 Bizerte Avenue Front

I expect that Kirkpatrick will get quite a few offers on this week’s High Caliber Home of the Week, sponsored by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans. If one of those offers is yours or your clients, contact Lisa Peters today to make sure that you can sail through pre-approval to put in your highest and best offer. From start to close, Lisa Peters at Caliber Home Loans provides an unequaled level of service and support!

Headshot 2014 Hi Rez Micky

There’s so much more to the real estate business in North Texas than sales numbers, notable listings, and a brokerage pedigree, but we don’t often get to focus on who our neighborhood Realtors really are, what they’re passionate about, and what inspires them.

That’s the goal of 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 second High-Caliber Agent sponsored by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans has succeeded at pretty much every aspect of the real estate business, but returned to his roots as a builder. Micky Carr, who founded Spruce Designs with two of his childhood friends, not only has a thriving real estate business with David Griffin & Company Realtors, but has taken his brand to a whole new level with his design-build firm. See what inspires this real estate Renaissance man, our High-Caliber Agent sponsored by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans after the jump!

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.

Colvin Court Rendering

I know this is a little unorthodox for our weekly High Caliber Home of the Week feature, but we would be remiss if we didn’t draw a little attention to a cool new development right off of Gilbert Street in Oak lawn. Designed by renowned, award-winning architect Russell Buchanan, this beautiful limestone and metal grouping of eight townhomes (four duplexes) was built by Centre Living Homes and is being marketed by David Griffin & Company Realtors.

This is exactly the type of property that Dallas needs — beautiful architecture, private courtyards, greater density, and environmentally conscious construction — and is certainly fitting of being named this week’s High Caliber Home of the Week sponsored by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans. If you’re ready to make your dream home a reality, call Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans to breeze through your purchase from bid to closing.

Jump to find out more about the delectable architecture and amenities of Colvin Court, as well as how you can get a first-look tour on Thursday, April 28.
