The fun little house at 961 Peavy Road has an amazing backyard that’s so big it feels like it has it’s own ZIP code. Remember when you were a kid and you got to just run around and play ninjas and all sorts of other made-up games? This backyard reminds us of that. Maybe it’s all the room or the fact that it’s covered in dead leaves because fall was the only time it was bearable to be outside, but either way, it’s awesome.

Hey, let’s get this right out of the way before people go to town, THIS HOUSE ISN’T FOR EVERYONE. It’s painted yellow. It’s bright and sunny and different. It’s perfect for a creative that again, wants to run around and play ninja in the backyard.

Jeremy Whiteker rejoined the Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate Park Cities office after spending the past year and a half at Compass.

“I feel like I have come back home,” Whiteker said. “I learned many lessons about what motivates me as a business owner and what components I need in place to keep that machine running. The Dave Perry-Miller staff is an extension of my business as they care just as much about my clients as I do. I was immediately reminded of that upon my return — at Dave Perry-Miller, the focus is on our clients.”

He added that he missed leadership and marketing support he’d had during his previous nearly seven-year tenure at Dave Perry-Miller. Some of his building partners actually encouraged him to return because, in their opinion, Dave Perry-Miller has a more organic focus on Dallas-Fort Worth.
