Breaking Dallas Real Estate News: We Have A New Hot Property – Joanna!

Share News:

Joanna with her son, Cooper.

Meet Joanna England: blogger, writer and brand-spanking-new mom. Get used to seeing her name and byline here on CandysDirt.com, because this gal knows a thingee or two about real estate, is a seasoned blogger and writer (Bubble Life, People Newspapers, Dallas Morning News), and will be contributing to this blog daily. As you know, there are a million real estate stories in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, and I cannot cover all of them.

But WE can.

BTW, got a great story real estate story for us to cover? House P? Send it to Joanna at joanna@candysdirt.com. (Just give us a few days to get it running.)

And just so you can feel like you know her a little better…

CD: So Jo, are you a native Dallas gal?

JE: I wish! I’m from the north Houston suburbs, namely a little town called Conroe. It’s sandwiched between Lake Conroe and the San Jacinto river, so you can imagine how humid it is. I do not miss the climate!

CD: What part of town do you live in?

JE: My husband and I fell in love with the White Rock Lake area, and have been calling East Dallas home for about five years now.

CD: What do you love about it?

JE: The lake, of course. We are very outdoorsy people, and we love to walk, jog, and cycle around White Rock Lake. It’s a great place to check out some amazing homes, too!

CD: What’s your dream neighborhood in Dallas? Why?

JE: Definitely the Cloisters. It’s practically on the lake, and has a great mix of architectural styles.

CD: Ideal home and design style (you don’t look like a Mediterranean gal to me…)

JE: You’ve got that right! We lived in Junius Heights for a short time, and I learned so much about Arts and Crafts architecture. Big front porches and clean lines make my heart skip a beat!

CD: If you could buy a second home, where might that be???

JE: Key West, Fla., which is perhaps my favorite place on the planet. Runner up is Estes Park, Colo.

    She's saving me a facelift from all these long nights at the computer — ha! — and now someone will maybe catch all my five million typos! (You will note she's NOT a blonde!) So excited to have Joanna on board!

    Welcome Joanna. Know the Conroe area myself. Lived in Cypress in the 80's (went to Cy-Fair High) and I agree, that's one thing I don't miss about that area of the state, the humidity. So brutal on the hair.
