My first house, which became my home, is on the market today. It’s a hip pocket the amazing Britt Lopez of Dallas City Center Realtors is handling for me.

I can’t go into detail about how kind Britt Lopez is – I will save that for my book – but know that she is not only a smart, clever Realtor with a sharp mind, but she is a gracious person whose true colors shine ever so brightly.

Originally built in 1938, this Hollywood Heights jewel underwent renovations from 2007 – 2012 which included all new electrical, recessed lighting, hidden speakers in every room, fabulous insulation, a 2012 roof and gutters, a 3-ton Amana furnace and air conditioner (2010), a Rinnai gas tankless water heater (2007), and a Rain Bird programmable sprinkler system (2011). This was no DIY or Home Depot reno.

Many of you know I am obsessed with Hollywood Heights and the street that we live on. I love our neighbors, I love the trees, I love how our street is off the beaten path and many don’t know about it, and I love that it’s little and intimate. In fact, I have previously described it as a little slice of heaven.

But with only 16 houses on it and a housing market that is on speed, the chance to live on our street doesn’t happen often. Until today. Kate Looney Walters with Allie Beth Allman has a LEASE listing for a charming tudor at 6926 Patricia Avenue in the middle of this great street.

With 1,687 sq. feet and 3 beds/2 baths, it’s not a bad size for a 1931 home either. (more…)
