Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate Leads Areas 12 and 18 in North Texas | CandysDirt.com

In Northeast and East Dallas, one brand leads the way in sold volume, market share, and units sold this year. That brand is Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate.

Areas 12 and 18 are some of the most coveted dirt in all of Dallas, and Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate has boots-on-the-ground expertise to make sales happen. 

“In these unique areas with old houses next to new ones, you really have to be a student of the market — my colleagues and I at Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate try very hard to do that,” said Nancy Johnson, a Realtor with the brand who has sold one in three Lakewood homes built before 1945 over the last five years. “We can advise people beyond the standard real estate transaction.” 

In Area 12 looking at houses over $450,000, Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate represented a 17.8 percent market share during Q1 of 2018. Looking at houses over $1 million, they commanded a 22.96 percent market share. In Area 18 during the same time period, they represented a healthy 18.5 percent market share.

“Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate’s results speak for themselves, and we have worked these areas for decades, so we understand the market nuances,” said Dave Perry-Miller Realtor Scott Jackson. “Our team is on record pace and production and, more importantly, giving our clients the best insight and guidance to making decisions in this competitive marketplace.” 

I’ve found four amazing properties represented by the brand that show the range of their properties in Areas 12 and 18. Let’s take a look!

Whitley Place

This Mediterranean Transitional in Prosper’s Whitley Place is more than 6,000 square feet of family-friendly space that is also grown up enough for great entertaining.

If you’re looking for a custom luxury home, on a one-of-a-kind lot, but also want a neighborhood that is family friendly, you can’t get much more perfect than homes in Whitley Place in Prosper, trust us.

Whitley Place offers some of the best amenities — a community pool, creek, lake pavilion, walking trails, and even a special playground for the tiniest kids (complete with splash pool). And the greenbelt — we can’t rave enough about. A hybrid of park area that was donated by the developers to the Town of Prosper and a private open space owned by the Whitley Place HOA, plenty of green space and trees means family outings are an easy walk from your home.

None of that is a surprise, by the way, when you factor in that the developers of Whitley Place — CC Joint Ventures — are also responsible for some of the nicest communities in Southlake and Westlake, too.

And Haley Wagstaff, member of the Heather Guild Group with Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate, has just the home for you, too — 4221 Glacier Point Court. (more…)

For the Most Discerning Buyer, this Lakewood Home Hits All the High Notes | CandysDirt.com

I’ve found a marvelous Lakewood home that’s perfect for the discerning buyer, with luxury amenities, a flexible floorplan, and fabulous location. Here’s a big bonus: It’s just been reduced $101K!

Located at 6910 Coronado Ave., it’s in the heart of Lakewood Hills on the southwest shores of White Rock Lake. I love this part of Lakewood.  

“This home offers attention to detail at every turn and a high-end finish-out,” said listing agent Heather Guild with the Heather Guild Group of Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate. “I think it’s truly an exceptional property in one of the most desirable neighborhoods of Dallas.” 

She’s right. With 12-foot ceilings, Austin stone exterior, and thoughtful spaces, this Lakewood home will please even the most discriminating person. It has five bedrooms, four bathrooms, two living areas, and 4,334 square feet on two stories, built in 2013. It’s also zoned for Lakewood Elementary, which earns a “10” out of 10 from greatschools.org, making it perfect for a family. 

Can I take you on a tour?

When you have an idea in your head, sometimes it sounds way more awesome rattling around in your brain than when it actually happens.

I’m happy to report that this was not the case last night. A steady stream of parents with children in Dallas ISD schools, Lakewood residents, Realtors and more came by the darling Tudor in Hollywood Heights to talk Dallas ISD schools with each other, yours truly, and newly-elected District 2 trustee Dustin Marshall.

815 Vivian Avenue will be the site of the first School + House event.

Just a reminder – tonight is our first installment of SCHOOL + HOUSE, a chance for Realtors and prospective parents to mingle with involved parents in Lakewood-area Dallas ISD schools, as well as District 2 trustee Dustin Marshall, plus see an adorable 3/2 Tudor in Lakewood. This first installment is a partnership with the Heather Guild Group and CandysDirt.com. Look for more in coming months in other neighborhoods – and Realtors, if you’re interested in finding out how this works, email me.

Details are below. The event is come and go – so swing by after work! (more…)

Way back when I first started writing for CandysDirt.com, the idea was that I give everyone enough information (or the ability to find that information) to make an educated decision about both public schools and neighborhoods they’d like to live in.

And for about the last six months, I’ve been noodling around with a concept that I’m thrilled to say is finally launching next week — SCHOOL + HOUSE. Part traditional open house for prospective buyers, part meet-and-greet with local school officials and parents, SCHOOL + HOUSE is designed to bring everyone you’d ever want to talk to about the Dallas Independent School District in one place, with the added bonus of getting a Realtor who is a fountain of knowledge about the neighborhoods that feed those schools.

Because some of the best knowledge about schools comes from the parents who are there every day. They’re informed, involved and ready to give anyone the ins and outs of sending your child to the schools in the neighborhood.   (more…)
