Now, I know that the curb appeal here comes off as somewhat meh, but I really like the look of this house. The window details, which are obscured by the bright sun, play so beautifully in the interior photography. They’re one of my favorite (albeit minor) features of this updated 1948 traditional at 5703 Anita Street.

Taken down to the studs in a 2016 renovation, the two-story, family-friendly abode provides a bright, fresh interior and a surprisingly romantic backyard. With four bedrooms and three bathrooms in 2,584 square feet, it’s listed by Karen Cuskey of Coldwell Banker for $639,000. Check out the spot-on interior and backyard oasis after the jump!

Let’s see. Should we start with the spot-on design, the great technology, the stellar amenities, or the unbelievable views? Today’s Saturday Six Hundred is an absolute real estate unicorn. This four-level, energy efficient, luxury townhome at 1910 Wickmere Mews offers all of those high-end finishes you’ve come to expect as well as a host of fantastic surprises. Spoiler: it shares amenities with the Belmont Hotel. Lounge by the pool or catch one of the outstanding live music shows all for a criminally low HOA fee of $81 per month. I know, right?

Sundrenched with views to die for, the 2,250-square-foot unit comprises two bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms. Listed by Alex Prins of Coldwell Banker, this gem is going for $649,000. Now, usually I find myself rather unmoved by 3D tours, but this one rates as an exception. Join us after the jump for it and lots, lots more.

This M Streets renovation may as well be a new build for all the updates it boasts. And I’m not just talking the cosmetic stuff. With a new roof, HVAC, updated plumbing, electrical, windows, and a tankless water heater, not a bit of 6158 Marquita Avenue was left untouched. It’s pretty and practical. I don’t know that it gets better than that.

Listed by Richard Garza with VIP realty, this gorgeous rehab is going for $799,000. The drive-up is pretty cute, but even still, it’s not remotely the most attractive feature of this home. It’s truly lovely inside. The finish-out choices are spot on. And with four bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and two half bathrooms in 3,177 square feet, it’s spacious in all the right ways. Join us after the jump to see for yourself.

At 19 years old, Lance Hames knew two things: college was not for him, and he was going to do something with a camera. In a Steve Jobs-ian tale of self-taught success, Hames is now the owner of Home Snappers and a rising star in Dallas real estate photography.

Driven and admittedly, just plain lucky, Hames has come a long way in a short time. But the journey wasn’t without a few bumps in the road. Like anyone who’s made their own path, Hames has learned some tough lessons along the way – lessons, he hopes, that have made him a better businessman and a better service provider to his Dallas real estate clients.

Urban living at its finest. That’s what the listing for this property promises, and honestly, it’s hard to argue. With three bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms in 3,046 square feet, 2140 Helsminster Drive is certainly urban living at its largest. High ceilings, plantation shutters, and well-planned spaces with high-end finishes make this townhome feel every bit the luxurious city abode. But ultimately, you’ll find that what’s outside truly sets this home apart.

Built in 2013, this spacious townhome is listed by Tony Nuncio of Dallas City Center Realtors for $849,900. Join us after the jump for a roof deck to beat all roof decks.

Like two ships passing, on October 1, Modtown Realty Group and Keller Williams quietly parted ways. The separation will come as neither sudden nor surprising to anyone keeping close tabs on Modtown. The group, who had been part of Keller Williams Park Cities since 2012, recently moved its offices back to Deep Ellum. And it’s there that Drew Colon and Jacob Moss say the group feel most at home and most connected to their brand, which largely appeals to Millennials and urbanites.

“We’re coming out to this market of Deep Ellum.” Colon said. “We’ve done a good job at creating an inviting environment here. The moment you walk in the door you get that sense. We’re back and we’re excited!”
