Highland Park Colonial Revival
When I think of a Highland Park Colonial Revival home, the words that come to mind are traditional, stately, classic, and gracious. The Colonial Revival has been and continues to be the most popular style in America. You’ll see it reimagined and reinvented by some of the best architects and builders in the country because it’s what people want.

It is the very essence of home.

I was thrilled to see this historic home hit the market because it ticks all the boxes for anyone looking for a family home, in a great neighborhood, that appreciates history, and wants to put down deep roots.

Is Dallas becoming LA?

We have been harping on this for quite some time, but now the mainstream media seems to have taken a whiff of real estate smelling salts. First-time homebuyers (who don’t get lump sum down payment help from Mom and Dad) are out of luck finding affordable homes and will continue to be out of luck, maybe forever.
