Highland Park Estate

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. Iconic Highland Park estates like 4412 Lakeside Drive are few and far between. You might think they linger on the market for years, but you’d be wrong. 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…)

Builder Brian Gream and architect Scott Marek are the talented duo behind our Inwood Home of the Week at 60 Vanguard Way, a magnificent modern masterpiece in Urban Reserve. Urban Reserve is one of those neighborhoods that make you look at your significant other and say “Honey, I don’t think we’re in Texas anymore.” But, boy howdy are you. (more…)

Preston Hollow TransitionalIt’s often challenging to bring you homes in lower price points, because they fly off the market before we can write about them. There’s a different challenge with properties in the luxury category. There are so many beautiful houses priced at over $1 million in Dallas that we often have a hard time choosing. However, when we spotted this beautiful Preston Hollow transitional at 6516 Mimosa Lane designed by Neal Stewart, it was evident we had to share it with you. (more…)

Hip-pocket 5841 Morningside Avenue 1
According to the The Real Estate Center at Texas A&M University, last month there were 2.1 months of housing inventory in Dallas County. This figure might make a buyer panic and pressure their Realtor to find them hip-pocket listings. Is this smart? Are buyers overlooking great deals for those hip pockets? Let’s take a look at a perfect example of an off-market sale.

IHOTW 5903-Lakehurst-Ave-1
Los Angeles, Miami, and New York have nothing on Dallas designers. We have the best. The Cantoni House at 5903 Lakehurst Avenue is a perfect example of what can happen when you give creative license to a design dream team. (more…)

phyllis_glover_2016_web_4xIt is with great sorrow we report the passing of Dave Perry-Miller agent Phyllis Glover. Phyllis died last Sunday morning after complications from a heart condition.

Born on May 20, 1943, in Marshall, Texas, Phyllis was a graduate of Marshall High School. She received her undergraduate degree from Centenary College, graduating Summa Cum Laude.

Phyllis received her master’s degree from Southern Methodist University and taught English in various schools in the Dallas area. More than 20 years after that calling, she entered the real estate field, working first for Ellen Terry.

One of the most seasoned veterans in town, Phyllis hung her shingle with Dave Perry-Miller, an Ebby Halliday company. Friends tell me Phyllis’s work was always about the friendship, not the business. But the business came because she was one of most hard-charging agents in the city.

Phyllis was preceded in death by her father. Her mother, Fern Payne, still resides in Dallas at Monticello West. She is also survived by her husband, Curtis Glover, her daughter, Whitney Glover, Whitney’s husband, Brandon Kell, and their two daughters, Stella and Zoe. Our hearts go out to them at this time of loss, and their mother will certainly be missed as much as she was cherished.

The Celebration of Phyllis’ life is on November 19, 2016, from 2:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. at the Scottish Rite Hospital for Children, 2222 Welborn St., Dallas, TX 75219, in the T. Boone Pickens Training and Conference Center.

The family requests (and appreciates) that any donations be made in lieu of flowers to the Scottish Rite Hospital for Children at www.TSRH.org
