In this week’s Agent Migration column, we check in with Gia Marshllo, who joined Allie Beth Allman late last year, and Jeremy Moore who joined the Hewitt & Habgood Group in February. Did you make a big move? Contact Joshua Baethge.

Gia Marshello Staying Busy at Allie Beth Allman

Gia Marshello is enjoying life at Allie Beth Allman & Associates. The 15-year Dallas real estate mainstay moved to the firm in December.

“I just saw more opportunity here,” Marshello said. “Allie Beth was expanding their market share, they were growing and I wanted to be a part of that.”

Throughout her career Marshello has sold a mix of historic homes and newer properties. She’s also sold duplexes and high rises. So far 2019 has been one of her busiest years. She works out of the Allie Beth Lakewood office and has seen people coming in at a faster rate than ever before.

“It’s great to be here and I’m looking forward to expanding and growing my business personally and professionally,” she said.

Organic Modernist

When I spotted this Organic Modernist home at 2215 Kessler Woods Court, I did a little happy dance. It immediately brought to mind Frank Lloyd Wright’s iconic Fallingwater, and Mountainside House created by architect James Fox. The influences of these midcentury masters are evident in the inspired design of this home.

IHOTW Oaklawn Townhome

Just look at that custom cathedral entry door! It gives you a small hint at what’s to come in this gorgeous Oak Lawn luxury townhouse. Once inside, prepare to go on a veritable global vacation. The seller has created thematic living spaces that take you from a Nantucket seaside cottage to a Moroccan rooftop resort.

Sitting on a front porch swing, sipping ice-cold lemonade, and waving at the neighbors seems like a nostalgic scene from a great movie. You may think that lifestyle is only found on screen, but there are still neighborhoods and homes in Dallas that capture every bit of that vintage cinematic charm — and then some. Our Friday Four Hundred is a cute Craftsman airplane bungalow at 243 N. Waverly in Oak Cliff, and it’s certainly camera-ready. (more…)

1424 Junior Front

Candy forwarded me this home last week, and the subject line of the email was, “Cutie pie with built-ins galore!” She sure does know how to sell me on a home, because I love a good bungalow with a high cute factor.

You guys, she wasn’t lying. This East Kessler bungalow is totes adorbs. I mean, just look at all that curb appeal! The shabby chic paint on the exterior with the olive green shutters and the adorable porthole vent above the front door just kills me. I die. The trees in the front yard make this home feel like it’s in a lovely little grove, too. And it’s in the very hot North Oak Cliff zip code of 75208. Close to shopping and downtown, and a great family area. This adorable house at 1424 Junior is marketed by the Oak Cliff experts at Hewitt & Habgood for $350,000.

1424 Junior Living

I know what you’re thinking now. “Sure, lots of homes have great drive-up and location. But what about the inside?” Well, hold on to your socks, folks, because you might just get them knocked offwhen you check out some of the fantastic architectural details inside this 1947 traditional.

1424 Junior Dining

First thing you’ll notice is the archways between rooms. The most dramatic are the scalloped archways flanking the dining room between the kitchen and living room. I just love them. It is a fantastic detail that is simple and yet very dramatic. Of course, there are tons of great built-ins, just like Candy said. In fact, they’re pretty much in every room, with corner cabinets for your china collection in the dining room, a floor-to-ceiling bookcase in the living room, and then another set of shelves in the breakfast area off the kitchen.

1424 Junior Kitchen

If you love older homes but hate their kitchens, well, you’ll love this house for it’s updated scullery, that’s for sure. Stainless steel and rich custom cabinets with granite counters and backsplash are a dream come true. Now, there’s a breakfast nook, too, which will have you start to think that this home seems kind of big for its age. It’s true, that it’s on the larger end of what you’ll find in this area, with three bedrooms, two baths, and 2,000 square feet.

The backyard is a little underwhelming, but hey, you can fix that easily with a little garden. What do you think of the whole shebang?
