SOUTHLAKE 1900 Shady Oaks Front

Oh how they live in Southlake! The estates are bigger, the homes heftier, and everyone, it seems, has a zip line and a swimming pool environment in their back yard.

We scoped out 1900 Shady Oaks Drive listed by Ebby Halliday’s Quinn & Marcontell Group to give us a look at how large folks are living in Southlake just west of DFW International. Price tag on this puppy: $5,500,000.

Let me just put it this way — out here, 8,000 square feet is considered an average-sized home.

There are 8,882 square feet of glorious living space, from mega formals (including four living areas, to a hearth room and loft in the library, a card room and housekeeper’s living quarters over the garage), outdoor patio, kitchen and bar, pool (natch), a ten acre lot with koi pond and stocked tank, pasture, enough room for horses and even a barn, and automatic gates around the whole thing.

What I love best, though, is the pizza oven in the kitchen.

Take that back: I love the humongous master bedroom with its own private garden and a sitting room. (more…)

The brand new Ebby Halliday Southlake office has opened!

Opened in 2014 across from Southlake Town Square, the new Ebby Halliday Southlake office is attracting more top producers.

With their slick new digs in Southlake, Ebby Halliday Realtors is attracting more and more top talent. Led by Carolyn Rosson, the Southlake office has brought in some of the area’s top agents.

“Our new location and beautiful office are a statement of our commitment to serving Southlake and the surrounding areas for many years to come but it’s our people who really make the difference,” Rosson said. “We are all so excited to be a part of this thriving community and truly value the opportunity to serve both current and future residents in the manner they deserve.”

Top producers, including the Quinn & Marcontell Group and Susan Mayer, have moved to Ebby and couldn’t be more pleased with the 13,000-square foot office that offers any and everything an agent could need — tastefully appointed collaboration centers, a bistro that would be the envy of many restaurants, and even a playroom for clients’ children.

Millennium Title

It’s kind of your worst nightmare: you buy a house, and park your funds with a Title Company, who executes the transaction and writes you a title policy to guarantee ownership and title of your most expensive asset, your home. Piece of cake, right?

But in a rare case, Texas insurance regulators have taken over a North Texas title company amid allegations the owner disappeared with millions of dollars of consumer’s money.

Millennium Title, with offices in Southlake, Fort Worth, Friso, Plano, Allen and Dallas Uptown, was ordered shut by The Texas Department of Insurance. TDI said the company had less than $10,000 on hand to pay more than $100,000 in bills. The firm was a year old and based in Southlake.

According to KXAS-TV reports, employees were dismissed, and state caretakers are now trying to close property transactions.

But where is the money? Apparently, there are questions concerning the company founder, Nancy Carroll, who has vanished. KXAS found packing boxes at Carroll’s Keller home.

Carroll is accused in a lawsuit, filed Friday in Tarrant County District Court by John Herlihy, of disappearing with funds he had put in escrow to sell some property. The suit claims Carroll has “left the country, absconding with over $1 million of his proceeds.”

According to the Southlake Chamber of Commerce website, Millennium Title was founded in January 2015 by Nancy Carroll,

Hey You, we’re not in L.A. Baby. This will be the First Time you’ve thought to yourself “This is What I Go to School For — a mansion in Westlake’s exclusive Vaquero neighborhood owned by those sibling heartthrobs, the Jonas Brothers.”

That’s what I thought, and it’s Got Me Going Crazy.

We couldn’t Take a Breath, so we had to Make it Right and tell you all that this amazing home will have you screaming “Hello Beautiful!” So we included this incredible estate in our countdown to the grand opening of the Ebby Halliday office in Southlake, which is tomorrow, not in the Year 3000.

The home that housed these heartthrobs in Vaquero is now on the market.

609 Stonebury Dr ext This house is a great example of why Ebby was just bustin’ out of her old office in Southlake and needed some space to expand! Let’s say a homeowner comes in asking for a 4,000 ish square foot home with a master and master bath on the main floor, a game room, a media room, and oh yes 4 bedrooms, three baths and a powder room. Then just to put the frosting on the cake, they say they must have a pool because this is, after all, Texas and it’s hot AND oh yes their budget is about $650,000. In most other places, the agents would say, “see ya” Here in Dallas, you’d serve up 609 Stonebury Drive in Southlake. 4496 square feet of family living so good you won’t know what took you so long to get here. This is an executive-level home in Southlake Woods, built in 2003. The popular floor plan is open and makes family gatherings, entertaining and just plain relaxing a joy! Get this: the master even has a study off of it. The island kitchen features a beautiful granite, the family room opens to the great outdoor living area and pool. There’s even room for a playhouse. This home was listed at $670,000 but has been reduced to $649,900. Great schools in the famous Carroll ISD and even an AHS Home Warranty… how can it get better than this?
