This summer, Leigh Ann Barrick joined Engel & Voelkers’ Southlake office after spending the past 11 years as one of Keller Williams’ top sellers.

“As much admiration as I have for Keller Williams and where I’ve been, I think it was time for me to grow and learn some new things, and this was a great opportunity,” she said.

One of the biggest advantages for her was the fact that Engel & Voelkers has a presence in Georgia’s Golden Isles. Barrick grew up in St. Simons Island, Georgia, before her former job at American Airlines brought her to North Texas. These days she spends about 70 percent of her time in Dallas-Fort Worth, and the rest in Georgia.

“I found now that after 20 years in real estate, a lot of my clients are looking for a second home, a vacation home or an investment, so Engel & Voelkers made sense to me,” she said. “They are also involved in things like aviation and yachting, which makes sense with my airline background.”

”.. a spa? Hotel catering? Daaaang! Walter, Are You Listening?”

.. A spa? hotel catering? “Daaaang! Walter, are you getting this?”

Listening to a representative from the Four Seasons Hotel and Club, Candy realized her  house was missing out on all the amenities the hotel has to offer. Aside from golf, there’s the spa, catering, swimming pools, kids camp, clubhouse for parties, and more.

Many attendees had that same, “Dang my house doesn’t have that” look as they heard about the “surround” provided by Four Seasons. It was the icing on top of the three special homes CandysDirt.com visited last night at the Enclave in Las Colinas.

In case you missed, we’re talking about 4774, 4782 and 4786 Byron Cir. These are three homes facing the 17th hole at the Four Seasons TPC course that’s been home to the Byron Nelson tournament for many years.

It’s not often you can say, “I can see the Four Seasons from my house.” At 5:30 p.m. Thursday, March 9, you’ll be able to say it from each of three neighboring properties at The Enclave in Las Colinas.  These homes not only see the Four Seasons, they’re privy to all the amenities of the hotel.

For golf enthusiasts, each home also fronts the Four Seasons TPC golf course, specifically, the Par 3 17th hole.  Because of owners entertainment prowess, it’s locally known as the “party hole” to tournament players and attendees.

Each home is being marketed by Leigh Ann Barrick, top producing broker/associate with Keller Williams.  Let’s review what you’ll be able to experience on Thursday night.

Please join us for our multi-home Staff Meeting open house event up in Las Colinas on March 9 at The Enclave.  For those just tuning in, this is the first time we’ve had a simultaneous, triple open house tour of over $7 million in real estate. In case you missed homes one and two you can click here and here. In addition to viewing these properties, we’ll also meet and listen to the general manager of the Four Seasons golf club who will discuss what it’s like living on a golf course in Four Seasons-land (wonderful, I’d expect … it’s the Four Seasons).

Our final property is 4782 Byron Circle and it’s the perfect bookend being the next-door neighbor of our first home (Map). All three properties are listed with Leigh Ann Barrick, top producing broker/associate with Keller Williams.  This home, on a third of an acre, is 5,123 square feet and contains four bedrooms with five full and one half bathroom. Built in 2001, it’s listed for $2.395 million.  Like its neighbor at 4786 Byron Circle, this home has 17th (party) hole views of the Four Seasons TPC gold course where the Byron Nelson tournament is held each May.

We’re thrilled to host you and your closest real estate-obsessed friends, but we’d be remiss if we didn’t thank the evening’s co-sponsor, John Kelly, branch manager with Guaranteed RateHe’s a genius with mortgages and we couldn’t be happier to have him aboard!

Sitting on roughly a half-acre, this home has plenty of space for kids or grandkids to roam. It’s definitely a luxury in this property within the gated Enclave community in Las Colinas.  If you’re just checking in, this is the second of three we’re featuring as part of our March 9 Staff Meeting event at the Enclave in Las Colinas that circles the Four Seasons resort and golf club.  Click here to see what you’ve missed.

This home at 4774 Byron Circle is more English mixed with a bit of gothic (Map).  Listed with Keller Williams Luxury Member Leigh Ann Barrick for $2.85 million, this 2003 home contains 6,690 square feet encompassing five bedrooms with five full and one half bathroom … 14 rooms in total.

I know it’s winter and the thought of venturing north makes you zip up your metaphorical coat, but Las Colinas isn’t too far, is it? Good.  Because CandysDirt.com and Keller Williams star Leigh Ann Barrick are hosting a Staff Meeting event on March 9th at three homes in the exclusive, gated Enclave community that borders the Four Seasons TPC golf course.  In addition to touring these expansive homes, we’ll be treated to a presentation by Four Seasons Club Manager Jim Kern on the benefits of living in Four Seasons turf. (And I do like me some Four Seasons!)
