Allie Beth Allman & Associates’ Susan Baldwin partnered with luxury builder Bob Thompson this year to develop two high-profile lots and they’re selling like hotcakes. The dynamite partnership has already sold one of these coveted lots and it’s only a matter of time until the other gets snapped up. Savvy Dallas homebuyers better hurry to get in on this rare opportunity to work with the best before it’s too late.

Two heads are better than one, and these are two professionals you definitely want on your team. Both Baldwin and Thompson have numerous connections in the industry that will make creating the home of your dreams a breeze. 

“What’s nice with a partnership is that you get to work directly with the builder on the job and he will build whatever you want, but you also know that the transaction will go smoothly because you still have a Realtor,” Baldwin said.


If you’ve been seeking an extraordinary home where you can live a life of luxury, look no further than this Preston Hollow stunner. As the former 8,363-square-foot home of a custom builder, every material is of the highest quality, and the impeccable finishes will blow you away. Whether you’re a food-lover chopping away in the masterful chef’s kitchen, a business mogul reading in the peaceful library with a separate exterior entry, or a spa-enthusiast basking in the lagoon-style pool and spa with cascading waterfalls, this home will feel like the ultimate oasis. 


We’re thrilled to get a close-up look at the latest completed home from small-batch custom builder The Avant Group. These stunning contemporary homes from this Approved Builder have so many great touches and luxe upgrades that you’ll quickly see why this builder has made a name for himself.
