This single mom recently started her homebuying journey with Ebby Halliday Realtor Peter Loudis, one of the top producers in Ebby’s Lakewood-Lake Highlands office.

She’s documenting her adventure on social media as @Amyvanderoef, including her blog at  AmyVanderoef.com.

“Amy has decided to take the plunge into homeownership and she searched for a local real estate expert and came across my name,” Loudis said. “She is looking for a new home in East Dallas and wanted to track her journey and give a real account of the homebuying process.”

Choosing a brokerage was an essential part of Vanderoef’s homebuying process.

“Having my Ebby Halliday team by my side has made all of the difference – their knowledge and confidence in this housing market allows me to enjoy the process while they lead the way,” she said. “Peter Loudis came highly recommended as an award-winning industry leader, and he’s a family man, which is important, too. He has been amazing to work with!”

Look, just look at this adorable home: 1034 Windomere in Kessler Park, minutes to the hopping Bishop Arts District and within skyline sight of downtown Dallas. Built in 1926, the home has not just three bedrooms but three baths, a two car garage, Park Cities sized 50 by 150 lot, 1995 square feet, character out the wahzoo with arched doorways, moldings, gleaming hardwoods, windows and natural sunlight. And I am just gaga over that bright red front door. This home says happy family, love, sweet nights, fun dinners, memories. Bubble baths. Wine and romance.

I asked Amy, why in the world are you leaving this angel? I threatened even to take down the for sale sign. It is too cute, I said, too perfect.

“We relocated to Las Colinas for Grants run for US Congress in District 24,” she said.  “Although we are very happy in Irving, we really loved our time in Oak Cliff. Bishop Arts is one of Dallas’s biggest gems and is growing fast. The new owner will love the house, the charm and the great neighbors. They will also love being minutes away from the amazing shops and restaurants in Bishop Arts!”

Well, that makes sense. And do you know how much this little angel is priced at? $329,999. Not even kidding. Not a misprint. Basically a car over $300,000. What is the deal? Do we not have the very best real estate in the world? Besides, buy this house that already has one darlingly famous occupant — that’s Amy — and what, just what if her hubby Grant Stinchfield not only wins that Congressional seat he’s running for but makes it to the White House someday? He’s adorable and has POTUS written all over him. I am seeing some serious, I mean serious, appreciation here folks: President Stinchfield slept here. In fact, where’s my checkbook…
