Breunig Ranch | CandysDirt.com

Just in time for the NFL Draft,  a brand new ranch property is going on the market — the 101-acre Mineola ranch owned by Bob Breunig, the legendary Dallas Cowboy linebacker from the Roger Staubach and Danny White eras. Breunig is known not only as a  Super Bowl Champion and one of the Cowboys’ all-time greats, but as a civic and business leader in Big D. Improvements to his horse ranch include a 2,400-square-foot, three-bedroom, one-bath main house; two guest cottages; a 15-stall Morgan horse barn; a riding arena; and more.

We have a first look today of this pretty rural East Texas property with karma galore on SecondShelters.com now!

Candy and Lynda Piepgras with the Associates Realty took a quick pic with “Property Brothers” stars Drew and Jonathan Scott.

Don’t be surprised if you see a few D/FW properties popping up on a future episode(s) of Property Brothers.

Metrotex Association of Realtors brought the dapper Drew and Jonathan Scott to Texas Tuesday morning to share insights with North Texas Realtors, associates, and friends for a breakfast at the Renaissance Hotel. They spoke, took photos, and then signed their newest book, It Takes Two, which was at every plate.  Interesting: they signed the front of the book — much faster — and were exceedingly gracious. The brothers told me they thought Dallas real estate ROCKED. On the way back to D/FW, Drew Scott spoke to EW Entertainment, which is tracking his progress on Dancing With the Stars. Drew mentioned the Dallas trip and how they feel about their fans:

If she brings a buyer, Lynda Piepgras will donate 5 percent of her commission from the sale of this gorgeous Robert Elliott custom home to the Highland Park Education Foundation as part of a new charitable campaign.

Realtors are famous for their generosity, and they are constantly looking for new ways to lift up the communities they serve. And though commission donation programs are nothing new, we’re absolutely impressed with Lynda Piepgras’ idea to help meet the needs of school districts by contributing a percentage of sales. In fact, Piepgras is launching a program that will commit 5 percent of her commission to the school district in which the home resides. 

“I really wanted to give back to the great neighborhoods I work in, and this is just a no brainer,” Piepgras said. “It’s easy and supports education, our kids, and our teachers.”

Mondara

Open 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 8

Highland Park is just about the most coveted neighborhood in Dallas. Sure there are sports stars, celebrity sightings, and film shoots, but the great schools, terrific police and fire department, and gorgeous luxury properties are what really draw buyers. There has only been one thing lacking … until now — Highland Park luxury condos.  Robert Elliott Custom Homes has solved that issue with their latest development, The Mondara, on Abbott Avenue.

A few days ago the certificate of occupancy was issued and it’s now move-in ready. A good thing, too, as 29 of the 39 units, ranging in price from $800,000 to $2.2 million, are already sold. We first heralded this incredible project in February of 2015, and then we gave you a sneak peek at this stunning development in April. When we were there on Thursday getting a grand tour from listing agent Lynda Piepgras of The Associates (Elliot’s brokerage firm), the one and only Nate Berkus and crew were hard at work on a recently purchased abode. That may give you a small clue as to just how special these homes are, because you know Nate doesn’t work on just any luxury condo!
