Dallas Real Estate News: Braden Power House Under Contract, Set to Close on March 25

Share News:

As headlined this morning, the Turtle Creek home of Braden Power is under contract. Pending inspections and all other contractual goodies, Lee Bailey, freshly ex-wife of restaurateur Ed Bailey, will acquire the beautiful but (according to some) controversial Turtle Creek palace on March 25. I spoke with Braden yesterday: the buyer, should the contract go through, is talking to both Sherry Hayslip, whose husband, Cole, designed the home, and Trisha Wilson about helping her fill it with furniture. Also Braden had recently covered the famous pool in the foyer to help move the house, but Lee apparently wants it back! This is a huge kuddo for listing agent Doris Jacobs, who just got the listing from co-Allie Beth powerhouse Erin Mathews,¬† and listed the home for $7.9 million. Which is interesting because Erin had it at $6.9 back in August, and I’m told the sales price was fairly close to asking or in-between the two. I sure had fun in that master bath back when Eleanor Mowery Sheets had the listing. This home has had as many agents as it has had swans in the back yard. Oh the stories I could tell…

Oh yes — Braden says not true about a lot of things said about his house, including that one black swan killed the other — neighbors found it all washed up down the creek.

Update: I spoke with Doris, who had asked me to keep mum about the sale ’til closing. Was really happy to hear that she had listed the home a couple years ago and had brought the buyer, Ms. Bailey, in way back then. Just goes to show you how persistence pays off!

    So is D's Jeanne Prejean not Erin's publicist anymore?? Great Job Doris ….Jeanne promoting the sale
    but Erin AKA Mathew Nichols @ Allie Beth Allman didn't sale while she had it listed….. So I guess
    it took a real pro to close deal….. I guess Doris Jacobs is the name to know……

    Rumor has it that those that have anything to do with this deal are allegedly [curse word]-off that this leaked. How could one not be when the ink isn't even dry on the contract? The Street hears that this might be seller sabotage. Didn't Erin Mathews have this listing recently? Doesn't the author of this post do PR for Erin Mathews? Isn't Erin Mathews in the same office as the current listing agent on this property? I wonder if someone has diarrhea of the mouth…
