John Jones is enjoying his new home at Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate. He joined the firm in February, forming a new team.
“I’m really happy to be part of the Dave Perry-Miller team and I’m really excited about some of the changes going on over here under the new CEO,” he said.
Jones has teamed up with Sam Bullard to form the Bullard/Jones group. The two are longtime friends and have both been active in the East Dallas neighborhood where they reside.
This will mark the 20th year that Jones has been involved with real estate. He began on the mortgage side where founded Homewood Mortgage. For the past decade, he’s been selling homes, which he says he enjoys because he gets to help people. The job requires him to rely upon his analytical skills and utilize his finance and accounting background, two things that he thoroughly enjoys.
“This is a good job for people who like to be involved in the community,” he said. “I just like being on the go and helping make what for many of them is their largest purchase.”
While open to working just about anywhere, Jones’ primary focus remains East Dallas, an area he knows well and enjoys showcasing for others. Right now he’s excited about the Craftsman-style home at 5844 Belmont Avenue in the heart of the Belmont Addition. The classic home within walking distance of Lower Greenville was built in 1926, but has been updated recently and features a floor plan ideal for entertaining
“It needs some renovations but it’s a great spot,” Jones said. “That street is very regal.”
Equally impressive is the three-bedroom, 3,295-square-foot home at 11306 Goddard Court. Listed for just under $500,000, the 2006-built home is in the gated Enclave at Wyrick Estates, mere minutes from Lake Highland, Casa Linda, and White Rock Lake.
