Starwood

Realtors get really excited when they get a listing in Starwood, the gated community in Frisco just north of Lebanon Road and west of the Dallas North Tollway. It’s gorgeous, exclusive, and the homes always shine.

So it was no surprise when Jennifer Menon with William Davis Realty reached out to us last week bursting with excitement about her new about-to-be posted listing at 6000 Hackberry Court — it’s a prime example of the livable elegance you can find in Starwood.

Livable elegance? That’s just fancy talk for “this house is super nice but you also won’t find yourself holding your breath every time your kindergartener wanders through with a popsicle.”

After spending the past eight years at Halo Real Estate, Mandi Simpson joined RE/MAX Four Corners in July. She says she is looking forward to the challenge of working with the firm’s heavy hitters, and hope they will help inspire her to double her current production of $10 million.  For her, the hardest part of the decision was informing her former colleagues.

“It’s tough because even though it’s business, the decision is personal because it affects people on a very deep level,” she said. “Once you are with someone a long time in this business it’s like family.”

The South and the West have the fastest-growing cities in the U.S., and Texas has a bumper crop of those cities, new population estimates for cities and towns released this week by the U.S. Census Bureau revealed. 

Just how many Texas towns and cities showed growth? Three made the top 15 most populous cities in the U.S. and even more saw substantial growth.

“On the other hand, of the 19,495 incorporated places in the United States, around 76 percent (14,768) had fewer than 5,000 people,” the Census Bureau said. (more…)
