People are making the move from expansive homes with huge backyards to luxurious condos for many reasons. Part of it could be that apartments are inherently more low maintenance, but another reason is that it’s a liberating change of pace to be in walking distance of raved-about restaurants, amazing shopping, and lush nature parks and trails. The world is wide open and the best city experiences are always at your fingertips. If that sounds like something you’re interested in, you definitely need to take a look at this beautiful unit in the Claridge Condominiums of prestigious Turtle Creek.

Merriman ParkIt happened this week — Lindsay Sikes Nicholson mentioned on Park Cities Resale Shop (a sort of virtual Facebook swap meet but way, way fancier) that her beloved Merriman Park home was going on the market.

“Our precious home will be hitting the market this weekend. Fully renovated in Merriman Park,” she wrote. “This has been a great home and I would love to see it go to someone that will love it as much as we have!”

At last count, there were 73 comments from people asking for more information. So uh, if you’re in love with this house like we were, you better get to hoppin’.

We took a minute to ask Nicholson what prompted the move — after all, the home is immaculate and adorable. Why leave now? (more…)

Last week Joe Kacynski joined Allie Beth Allman & Associates after more than nine years with a boutique brand.

“I really didn’t want to leave where I was but they (Allie Beth Allman) just offer so much that will help me grow my business,” he said. “They also have great name recognition in the area that many of my clients are moving to.”

Kacynski’s specialty has been historic homes in East Dallas, particularly the Hollywood Heights neighborhood he’s called home for the better part of two decades.  A Los Angeles native whose job and family brought him to Texas, he initially didn’t know what to make of Dallas. Then he discovered a Spanish-style house that reminded him of home, in a neighborhood with its own distinct vibe.

“My agent never even mentioned Hollywood Heights or Lakewood. It was a very niche market back then,” he recalls. “I found East Dallas just driving around one day by myself.”
