Historically, real estate agents often find themselves in a bit of a lull at the end of the year, particularly in the luxury end of the market. Not so for Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate listing agents Bo Parker (Highland Park Office) and Cindy Bruner (Preston Center Office). The two just closed the second-largest sale in Dallas thus far this year.

The home they represented at 4412 Lakeside Drive is an iconic 1918 Hal Thompson beauty overlooking Exall Lake in Highland Park, marketed for $9.495 million. CandysDirt.com columnist Karen Eubank featured it as our Monday Morning Millionaire in September.

“This house was truly a joy to show,” says Parker. “It’s a masterpiece that beautifully blends the character of days gone past and today’s updated clean palette. It has an elegance and integrity that cannot be replicated.”

Though it has been off and on the market over the last few years, it was most recently back on for just 66 days before going under contract. The previous owner invested in significant upgrades to the 9,035-square-foot, four-bedroom home, and the skills of premier home stager George Bass were enlisted to help attract the new buyer. The efforts paid off last Wednesday.

Luxury real estate in Dallas is like musical chairs. No one stays put for long, and if you don’t move fast, someone pulls that chair out from under you.

The fact that a property like this doesn’t come along often means if you are in the market, don’t assume it will stay around. (more…)

Last week’s Supper Club really threw you for a loop, didn’t it? It was your first time hosting a dinner for five couples in your home, and it made the space feel over-full and claustrophobic. This house that was a wonderful place when your children were small is starting to feel as if it’s bursting at the seams now that your kids constantly have their friends over. Weekends seem like a never-ending stream of sleepovers and fundraisers. You’ve finally faced facts: it’s time to upgrade your living space.

Yes, some brave souls would take the time to hire an architect, find a builder, and perhaps remodel or expand their current home. But for you? Ain’t nobody got time for that! Why not find a fantastic home that will entertain crowds of all ages, with tons of open space an upgrades, that will fit your family for years?
