John Jones is enjoying his new home at Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate. He joined the firm in February, forming a new team.

“I’m really happy to be part of the Dave Perry-Miller team and I’m really excited about some of the changes going on over here under the new CEO,” he said. 

Jones has teamed up with Sam Bullard to form the Bullard/Jones group. The two are longtime friends and have both been active in the East Dallas neighborhood where they reside.

This will mark the 20th year that Jones has been involved with real estate. He began on the mortgage side where founded Homewood Mortgage.  For the past decade, he’s been selling homes, which he says he enjoys because he gets to help people. The job requires him to rely upon his analytical skills and utilize his finance and accounting background, two things that he thoroughly enjoys.

“This is a good job for people who like to be involved in the community,” he said. “I just like being on the go and helping make what for many of them is their largest purchase.”

Special philanthropic event at this stunning property Friday evening!

When buyers walk into a home, they are focused, naturally, on everything the eye can see. That’s why design and photography is so important when marketing a home. 

But increasingly, as this bout with Atmos Energy in some Dallas neighborhoods has taught us, the focus needs to be on the things we cannot see with the naked eye: upgraded components such as electrical wiring, new switches, roof shingles, insulation, HVAC, sub flooring and of course, pipes inside, pipes outside.

9606 Losa in Casa Linda Estates Lake and Garden District fits the bill of perfection more than most “pretty picture” homes you see. The builder has years of experience remodeling homes, knows what works, knows that in the end, quality work is not just where you see it, but where you don’t, that makes a house rock solid.

The home was born in 1947… (more…)

Kristin Smith, Conner Cromeens, Candace Evans, John Jones,Rick Davis, and Chyenne Overturf celebrated the launch of the Source Group at Yucatan Taco Stand, an East Dallas hangout.

As we visited (and drank!) with them at their recent launch party, it was hard to not be impressed with what John Jones and Conner Cromeens want to accomplish. And what they HAVE accomplished! The two East Dallas Realtors launched the Source Group at Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s with the objective of using their skills,  talents and vast network of connections to fulfill a niche in East Dallas neighborhoods. Truly, their mission statement offers a lot of insight to their business:

“We believe our product is a lifestyle. In everything we do, we believe that honor, integrity and kindness are not benefits, but the standard. We believe that community turns houses into homes. We believe that luxury is an experience. We do these things by offering tireless service, unmatched experience, knowledge, and a kind warm approach. We just happen to sell real estate.”

What it doesn’t say is that Jones and Cromeens have the backgrounds to really cater and guide the homebuying or selling experience into something that isn’t fraught or stressful.
