BRAND-NEW BELMONT WEST CUTIE

Open house: Dec. 8, 2-4 p.m.

When we asked Coldwell Banker Residential Realtor Alex Prins where he was hanging out this weekend, he pointed us to this new construction west of the Belmont Hotel at 1213 Walmsley Ave.

“This new build is like a dream!” he told us. “Floor the ceiling windows, tons of sunlight, hand-scraped hardwoods, 12-foot ceilings, and so much more!” (more…)

422 N. Marlborough Avenue, Dallas, Texas is listed by Alex Prins of Alex Prins Real Estate for $439,000.

Meet “The Bishop,” a hot new listing that real estate agent Alex Prins calls a “nightmare project turned into a dream from heaven!” Prins, of Alex Prins Real Estate, tells us the duplex near the heart of Bishop Arts District, has been abandoned for years, wrapped up in courts, fought over with architecture plans, had contractors quitting, and so much more. But now it has finally hit the market with new juju and a spectacular price. Where else can you get a meticulously updated, three-bedroom, two-bathroom duplex close to all things Bishop Arts for $439,000? Read on as we dish the dirt on this week’s Friday Four Hundred – a fantastic Dallas offering and real estate story you can’t afford to miss!

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.

As a real estate agent, Alex Prins makes a living helping people find homes. And as a foster child adopted by loving parents in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, Prins grew to have a profound and nuanced appreciation for what ‘home’ really means. To pay tribute to his parents and heighten awareness of the importance of adoption, Prins created a short film which debuted on Mother’s Day. Deeply touching and wonderfully personal, “Make a Heart a Home” (after the jump) explores, predominantly through imagery, Prins’ experience with home, family, identity, and love. In six short, powerful minutes, Prins allows his audience to share a deeper understanding of how he defines home, and how home has defined him.

The CandysDirt.com Executive Team with Rogers Healy Realtor Alex Prins.

The Eberhard hosted an unlikely combination of causes and brands that turned out just right. It was where Rogers Healy Realtors Alex Prins and Ryan Schwartz hosted a fashion show for designer Stephen Goudeau, all benefiting no-kill shelter Operation Kindness. And it was a raging success.

Rogers Healy is known to attract clients with some celebrity status. Part of that is due to his rugged good looks and ubiquitous T shirts. He also hustles like crazy when it comes to his brokerage. The brand has made Healy a frequent visitor on network TV, though he still posts on the local Facebook yard sale pages, eliciting quite a few LOLs.

But what if the brokerage harnessed that power of celebrity and personality for good? That’s what Realtors Alex Prins and Ryan Schwartz aim to do with Adopt Fashion.
