Dallas ISD

Listed by Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate, this home at 5538 Junius St. is in the attendance zone for Lipscomb Elementary School, and is one of many houses you can find in the attendance boundaries for Dallas ISD.

For the past two years, Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate has tasked me with finding great neighborhoods around some schools that might be more unfamiliar to buyers who traditionally look around the Lakewood, Rosemont, Stonewall Jackson (now Mockingbird Elementary), and Withers elementary schools when they want a home in Dallas ISD.

The great news is that this year, with the district garnering the second-highest rating you can get from the state’s new A-F accountability system (and one of the highest among Texas urban school districts), the odds are extremely good that you’ll be able to find a home in the attendance zone of a great Dallas ISD school.

Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate Leads Areas 12 and 18 in North Texas | CandysDirt.com

In Northeast and East Dallas, one brand leads the way in sold volume, market share, and units sold this year. That brand is Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate.

Areas 12 and 18 are some of the most coveted dirt in all of Dallas, and Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate has boots-on-the-ground expertise to make sales happen. 

“In these unique areas with old houses next to new ones, you really have to be a student of the market — my colleagues and I at Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate try very hard to do that,” said Nancy Johnson, a Realtor with the brand who has sold one in three Lakewood homes built before 1945 over the last five years. “We can advise people beyond the standard real estate transaction.” 

In Area 12 looking at houses over $450,000, Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate represented a 17.8 percent market share during Q1 of 2018. Looking at houses over $1 million, they commanded a 22.96 percent market share. In Area 18 during the same time period, they represented a healthy 18.5 percent market share.

“Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate’s results speak for themselves, and we have worked these areas for decades, so we understand the market nuances,” said Dave Perry-Miller Realtor Scott Jackson. “Our team is on record pace and production and, more importantly, giving our clients the best insight and guidance to making decisions in this competitive marketplace.” 

I’ve found four amazing properties represented by the brand that show the range of their properties in Areas 12 and 18. Let’s take a look!

Revitalized and booming, Dallas’ Uptown area is a long-time hot spot, reborn. It is the city’s hottest office and residential area, directly north of downtown with the finest array of dining in the city, high-end boutiques, vibrant nightlife, and salons. This creates an electric atmosphere, day and night, with lovely historic residential neighborhoods alongside newer developments.

Luxe high rises, sleek condominiums, and gated communities are just a few reasons Uptown is urban living at its best. Residents have many naturally beautiful areas to enjoy that are unique to this area, like Katy Trail, Reverchon Park, and Turtle Creek.

At the end of 2018’s first quarter, the undisputed real estate leader in Uptown is Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate in both total sales volume and total units for the area. The brand finished 2017 with almost twice the market share of its nearest competitor in MLS Area 17, which includes, Uptown, Downtown and Oak Lawn. Their listings are incredible!

“As an Uptown resident and Uptown property specialist, it’s been exciting for me to watch the area evolve and grow vertically — I’m proud to be a part of the company that continues to lead the way,” said Emily Ray-Porter, a Realtor with Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate. “I think it’s DPM’s unique focus and dedication to neighborhood-specific real estate that makes us so successful.”

I’ve found three that exemplify the kind of quality and luxury the brokerage is trusted to represent.

Find Exclusive Lakeside Living Just 1.5 Hours from DFW at the Links of Lake Athens | CandysDirt.com

An hour and 15 minutes east of Dallas, I’ve found a private waterfront golf resort on one of the most pristine lakes in Texas. Three parcels at the Links of Lake Athens have hit the market, offering exclusive, one-of-a-kind living for the right buyer or buyers. 

The Links of Lake Athens is a 52-acre, gated development subdivided into five separate parcels. Ownership of three of the parcels is being offered exclusively by Ashley and Malcolm Ross of The Ross Group at Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate. The price for all three is $7.5 million, and includes a 7,200-square-foot, seven-bedroom home, plus two guest houses. The three parcels can also be purchased individually (details below). 

What’s so wonderful about the Links of Lake Athens? Privacy tops the list. This is the place you can get away from it all and enjoy total relaxation and peace. Amenities are another thing owners enjoy: think 2,500 feet of lake frontage, an eight-stable equestrian center, two grass tennis courts, and a lush four-hole golf course that plays like an 18-hole, par-72 course and practice area.

“The Links at Lake Athens is for the person or family who seek privacy, exclusivity, and is passionate about the outdoors,” said Malcolm Ross. “The gated property offers unparalleled lakefront views, an incredible golf course with practice area, stables, water sports, and so much more.” 

I’ve got a video and photos after the jump — so beautiful!

Arts and culture organizations and events rely on strong, consistent sponsorship to remain vibrant. Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate delivers, sponsoring multiple groups as part of its commitment to North Texas. 

This month alone, the brand will be sponsoring the Dallas Art Fair, USA Film Festival, Spring at the Park at NorthPark Center, and the Lyman Whitaker exhibit at the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens.

Corporate sponsorship is vital for nonprofit organizations, particularly arts organizations, because it can inspire other companies to get involved.

“It is good business to be involved in the community on so many levels, and Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate’s consistent support has been especially important to USA Film Festival over the past 10 years in terms of being able to expand our programming and the number of audiences we serve with our outreach programs,” said Ann Alexander, Managing Director of the USA Film Festival. “It takes long-term partners to make expansion possible, and we are so grateful for that partnership, as well as Dave’s active leadership on the board of directors.”
