Nathan Grace Realtor Carrie Hill traveled to Nicaragua to help build a home for a needy family.

Nathan Grace Realtor Carrie Hill traveled to Nicaragua to help build a home for a needy family.

With every commission check Nathan Grace Realtor Carrie Hill receives, a portion of that helps build homes for the less fortunate. What she gets back, though, is priceless.

Hill has now helped on two projects with Giveback Homes, a purpose-driven network of Realtors that works in conjunction with Habitat for Humanity. With two builds under her tool belt — one in South Dallas and another in Nicaragua — Hill has some words to share with Realtors who want to find a way to give back to the community.

“Since May of 2014, the Olson and Hill team at Nathan Grace Real Estate has been a proud Giveback Homes partner and 100 percent of our donations go directly to the field,” Hill said. “Every client that we’ve helped can say they’ve had a hand in helping build a home for families in need here locally in Dallas and in Nicaragua.”

10811 Clearbrook Front

Lochwood is one of my favorite areas in Dallas because it has so many gorgeous, mature trees, hilly topography, and a stunning mix of architectural styles. I love the soft contemporaries, midcentury moderns, traditionals, and even the random colonial!

And it’s popular with families, too, thanks to the close proximity to White Rock Lake and nearby Lochwood Park. If this has been the neighborhood of your dreams for a while, well, it might be a little while longer before you find your dreamhome. In fact, Carrie Hill of Nathan Grace’s Olson & Hill team told me she was going to have a cute little home come on the market soon that was in my neck of the woods. That was two weeks ago. When 10811 Clearbrook hit the market this week, I was so excited to feature it.

Well, it was only on the market THREE WHOLE DAYS and now it’s officially pending. Crazy, huh?

5702 Hudson Front

I was chatting with Carrie Hill, one half of the dynamic auburn-locked duo of Olson & Hill Real Estate, and she told me she had a fabulous condo in a super hot area that was just on the market. I said “Bring it on!” of course, looking forward to mixing up our Tuesday Two Hundred feature with a condo property.

That was last Thursday, May 29. Yesterday, it was under option contract.

I asked Hill about it, and whether or not she would mind me featuring a property of hers that was already spoken for. ” Sure you can go ahead with it!” she replied. “That’s the way they all are now!”
