Spanish Eclectic Hutsell

There are those days when I scroll through listings, swoon, and think … if only. If only I’d seen this iconic Lakewood Spanish Eclectic Hutsell on day one. If only I had the means to make it my own. If only it had not blown off the market due to the incredible skills of Compass Real Estate’s talented listing agent, Nancy Johnson.

I knew the moment I spotted our Inwood Home of the Week, this gem would sell immediately. These iconic Lakewood Spanish Eclectic Hutsell properties don’t come along often. When they do, you hope and pray whoever made the purchase is worthy of the home. And I mean that. You do not, and I repeat DO NOT tear these homes down.

Clifford Hutsell built homes for people that appreciated art, character, style, and quality. To own a Hutsell is to own a piece of Dallas history. It’s the antithesis of the white box. It’s eclectic. It’s cool, and these homes are meant to be owned by people that are equally eclectic and cool. At the unbelievable price of $1.399 million, is it any wonder that at seven days on market, this Spanish Eclectic Hutsell at 7218 Lakewood Boulevard is already pending?

“You cannot get that quality of construction anymore,” Carol Gantt said. (more…)

Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate Leads Areas 12 and 18 in North Texas | CandysDirt.com

In Northeast and East Dallas, one brand leads the way in sold volume, market share, and units sold this year. That brand is Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate.

Areas 12 and 18 are some of the most coveted dirt in all of Dallas, and Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate has boots-on-the-ground expertise to make sales happen. 

“In these unique areas with old houses next to new ones, you really have to be a student of the market — my colleagues and I at Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate try very hard to do that,” said Nancy Johnson, a Realtor with the brand who has sold one in three Lakewood homes built before 1945 over the last five years. “We can advise people beyond the standard real estate transaction.” 

In Area 12 looking at houses over $450,000, Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate represented a 17.8 percent market share during Q1 of 2018. Looking at houses over $1 million, they commanded a 22.96 percent market share. In Area 18 during the same time period, they represented a healthy 18.5 percent market share.

“Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate’s results speak for themselves, and we have worked these areas for decades, so we understand the market nuances,” said Dave Perry-Miller Realtor Scott Jackson. “Our team is on record pace and production and, more importantly, giving our clients the best insight and guidance to making decisions in this competitive marketplace.” 

I’ve found four amazing properties represented by the brand that show the range of their properties in Areas 12 and 18. Let’s take a look!

Clifford Hutsell, beloved regional architect, is known for his Lakewood and Highland Park houses. After a visit to Beverly Hills in 1929, he so fell in love with Spanish Colonial revival architecture, he brought it back with him, designing a series of homes with his own exuberant and eccentric take on the style.
