Ryan Shea, his wife Mercy, and one of their sons enjoy last year’s holiday pie party.

For the seventh straight year, Realtor Ryan Shea will celebrate the holidays with pies. His annual holiday pie party is a way to thank clients and give back to those who have helped him.

“Ultimately it’s just a way to get everyone together,” Shea said. “My clients can meet each other. It’s just a great way to lighten up, relax and have a good time.”

The event will be held from 11 a.m.- 1 p.m. Dec. 13 at the Dallas Tree House store, 8021 Walnut Hill Lane. Anyone interested in attending should email Shea at ryan.shea@exprealty.com along with their pie preference (pecan, pumpkin or apple) before Dec. 10. International speaker and author Dr. Hank Seitz, known for his books on business and performance development, will also be in attendance. (more…)

And you can tell this home is special from the moment you drive up to the curb — just look at that adorable turquoise door, and the covered porch that’s just begging for a few hanging flower baskets and a couple of cute chairs. (more…)

El Tivoli Place

North Oak Cliff is full of storied neighborhoods like El Tivoli Place. This well-established area features winding streets, hilly terrain, creeks and greenbelts, and arching shade trees. Its charmed brick homes, serene setting, proximity to downtown, and affordable real estate make it appealing to buyers.

Our Tuesday Two Hundred at 2711 El Tivoli Dr. is a 1945 gem, only minutes from Bishop Arts. It is recently updated with two bedrooms, one bathroom, and 1,227 square feet on one story. This house is gorgeous, from its new exterior hardscaping and fresh paint, to energy efficient updates and a total wow factor throughout.
