The Heather Guild Group has moved to Compass Real Estate. Guild said the decision was made after a careful evaluation of what kind of company they felt had the best tools and resources to help them serve their clients.

“We really felt Compass was a good blend of the time-tested agent/client relationship model of real estate, combined with the innovative technology that our clients have come to expect in every other aspect of their lives,” Guild said. “We are excited to have joined a real estate brokerage that is not only on pace with current technology but really has a vision for where real estate services are going.”

Wynnewood 509 Hoel Drive

The secret is out — Wynnewood North is hot.  Located just south of the Bishop Arts District, and only three miles to downtown, it’s one of the larger neighborhoods of Oak Cliff. In 2012, the Dallas Observer named Wynnewood North the Best Neighborhood in Dallas, and it just keeps getting better.

Wynnewood, you may have guessed, is named after the Wynne family. Yes, that Wynne family — the same genius behind  Six Flags Over Texas. Construction on the self-contained, planned community began in 1946 and was almost complete by the mid 1950s.

Angus G. Wynne Jr. was tasked with creating quality homes, economically, but with individuality. Not a very tall order was it? He succeeded, of course, and those homes are just as solid today, as the day they were built. Families are flocking into these ultra-cool, split-level, mid-century modern homes and our Friday Four Hundred is a perfect example of why they are so appealing  to a new generation of buyers.
