By now, everyone in the real estate industry is familiar with the term “flip.” And if you’re looking for an example of a “flip,” look no further than pretty much every single block in Midway Hollow. The area is lousy with them — both the good ones and the less than great ones. So, if you’re a real estate investor looking to make a buck, how do you make your flip stand out from the rest?
First, you’re asking the wrong question. You should be wondering how you can do better than just a “flip.” The answer is in our High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans. It’s a listing from David Griffin & Company Realtor Janelle Alcantara in Glen Cove that is not just any “flip” — it’s a rebuild.
Say you’ve always dreamed about living in one of those iconic loft buildings that Deep Ellum and the Farmers Market area are just littered with (our favorite is 2220 Canton St.), but after a marriage and a kid, and maybe a dog or two, you’ve outgrown your urban life. It’s time to move to the suburbs.
“The architecture is sleek and contemporary with an open floor plan, yet the rooms still have definition,” says Robert Kucharski, the David Griffin & Company Realtor listing the Lakewood modern at 6420 Kenwood Dr. “The quality of the materials used to build the home are superior to most others.”
That’s a high compliment for builder Marlon McMakin with Modern Custom Homes. The house was completed in 2015, and still looks just as fabulous as the day it was built.
It’s hard to be a host in summer, especially with the Texas heat bearing down on you. That’s why, more often than not, summer parties are centered around the pool. That is, if you have one.
But it takes more than that — you need a good floor plan with plenty of space between bedrooms and common areas, a capable kitchen, and a good transition between indoor and outdoor spaces. Luckily for you, David Griffin & Company’s Sam Claussen has just one such listing located inside the coveted M Streets. It’s an adorable brick-and-stone storybook M Streets Tudor, and it’s the perfect High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans — especially if you like to entertain during the hotter months.
You’ve heard us lament the increasingly rare affordable home in Dallas, and how difficult it is to find move-in ready real estate inside the city.

We’ve already profiled several units inside this converted Farmers Market loft building, which might be the best example of such a building that Dallas has to offer. But this second-floor unit at 2220 Canton, No. 209, might just be my favorite. I love the layout — almost completely open save for a privacy wall blocking the view of the bedroom area from the living area. Everything else is just picture perfect, and the light, with windows that just skim the treetops, is sublime.
It has all the makings of a High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans. If this looks to be the lofty urban paradise you’ve always dreamed of, call Lisa today to get the right loan so you can move in and start the new year off right.
