Lots of real estate brokerages try to claim a top spot in DFW, but numbers don’t lie. The sales volume of the Ebby Halliday Companies puts them in the No. 1 spot in North Texas, with $7.8 billion in 2016 sales, according to MLS data. 

Comprised of Dallas-based Ebby Halliday Realtors and Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate, as well as Fort Worth-based Williams Trew Real Estate, the Ebby Halliday Companies also is No. 1 based on average sales price among the five brokerages with the most DFW transactions and No. 1 among independent brokerages. That’s quite an accomplishment. 

“Congratulations to all of the dedicated, hard-working Associates and staff members who made these phenomenal sales numbers possible,” said Mary Frances Burleson, president and CEO of the Ebby Halliday Companies. “While 2016 was truly an exceptional year, we already know that 2017 is destined to be another extraordinary year for North Texas real estate and the Ebby Halliday Companies.”

Splurge vs. Steal: Two Gorgeous Forest Hills Homes Close to White Rock Lake | CandysDirt.com

East Dallas neighborhood Forest Hills is one of the most beloved by its residents, and for good reason. This quiet, tree-shaded area gives the feeling of being away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The architecture impresses, the neighbors say hello, and home values have skyrocketed. 

For today’s Splurge vs. Steal, feast your eyes on two fabulous Forest Hills homes with style, substance, and, of course, location. They’re under a mile apart from each other, and both are in the attendance zone for Alex Sanger Elementary School, which earns a 9 out of 10 from greatschools.org. Let’s take a look.

Cochran Heights is known for its incredible collection of Charles Dilbeck-designed homes. In fact, thanks to neighborhood leaders, the neighborhood was recognized last year with a Texas State Historical marker. The plaque, which was placed on Henderson Avenue between Consignment Heaven and Nick Brock Antiques, sheds light on Cochran Heights and its priceless character. 

Though Charles Dilbeck is well known for his traditional eclectic designs, there are very few remaining homes built buy this renowned architect in the international style. So we’re thrilled to feature one such example — 5103 Pershing — as our High Caliber Home of the Week sponsored by Lisa Peters at Caliber Home Loans. It’s an incredible coming-soon listing from Dave Perry-Miller Realtor Jarrad Barnes

“This is a unique property and has been published in multiple books on Dallas architecture and Charles Dilbeck, identifying this home as Mr. Dilbeck’s finest example of the international style,” Barnes said.

Strait Lane

The estate at 10620 Strait Ln. is one of three currently represented by Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate on this stories, exclusive street.

Strait Lane is one of the most fabulous and famous streets in Dallas. It’s home to a veritable Who’s Who of residents, from Margot and Ross Perot to Jessica and Dirk Nowitzki. They live in some of the city’s most impressive and esteemed estates. Buy a home on Strait Lane and not only have you arrived, you’ve probably arrived in a Learjet.

I’ve found three extraordinary Strait Lane residences represented by Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate. They’re within a half mile of each other on the most exclusive stretch of the street in Old Preston Hollow.  

Conveniently located only 15 minutes from downtown Dallas, this close-in arrangement is why some of the city’s most distinguished residents make Strait Lane their chosen address.

“Some of Dallas’ top-rated private schools, shopping, and dining are within minutes of Strait Lane and it has estates ranging from 1 to 25 acres — you have a country-like setting in this location,” said Realtor Ryan Streiff with Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate. “The homes are deeply set back and those on the east side have beautiful creek views. There’s also an off-duty Dallas police officer patrolling these gated properties, offering a very secure setting.”

With mature trees, rolling topography, proximity to White Rock Lake, and tons of charming homes, Lochwood is getting plenty of attention from buyers. Of course, when there’s a lot of interest in a neighborhood, prices tend to go up, so we’re not surprised to see this ranch on Rogue Way priced in the $400,000 range. Truly, we have been wondering when the rest of Dallas was going to catch on to this great little enclave of 1960s architecture. 

But this little home, while it’s unassuming from the curb, packs quite the punch inside. With a designer kitchen, open spaces, and tons of light, you’re sure to fall in love with this hip-pocket listing from Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate’s Scott Kaserman at 11718 Rogue Way.
