After spending the past eight years at Halo Real Estate, Mandi Simpson joined RE/MAX Four Corners in July. She says she is looking forward to the challenge of working with the firm’s heavy hitters, and hope they will help inspire her to double her current production of $10 million.  For her, the hardest part of the decision was informing her former colleagues.

“It’s tough because even though it’s business, the decision is personal because it affects people on a very deep level,” she said. “Once you are with someone a long time in this business it’s like family.”

This popular biennial event, hosted by the Celina Garden Club, drew hundreds of attendees from throughout North Texas in 2017. The self-guided tour will be presented rain or shine.

“Our tour homes are full of gardening glory,” Celina Garden Club President Lynn Balint said. “This year, we have a couple of repeat venues because they were so much fun and their gardens were spectacular.  We have also recruited some outstanding new venues.”

Grenadier

Whether you’re looking at retirement and downsizing, or you’re a first-time buyer looking to get into a popular development in Prosper, a new partnership between Grenadier Homes and California-based The Resmark Companies has right-sized, right-priced options.

The two have partnered to develop 198 single-family attached townhomes in two neighborhoods at Windsong Ranch in Prosper. It will be the only remaining development planned in the master planned community.

Resmark and Grenadier will partner on the second phase of the successful Villas at Windsong Ranch community for the development of 88 single-family attached one-story villa townhomes. A new townhome line of 110 single-family attached two-story townhomes within Windsong Ranch will also be part of the investment.  Sales are expected to begin in summer 2019 with first occupancies in late 2019 and completion in summer 2023, a joint statement from the companies said.

Resmark is based in Los Angeles, but has offices in San Diego and Irvine, California, Austin, Texas, and McLean, Virginia. Grenadier is Dallas-based.

“This is our first investment in Dallas,” Michael Zarola, Senior Vice President of Investments for Resmark’s Land and Housing division, said in a phone interview. “And without it sounding like a sales pitch, what we really do kind of focus on partner first and real estate second.” (more…)

This Mediterranean Transitional in Prosper’s Whitley Place is more than 6,000 square feet of family-friendly space that is also grown up enough for great entertaining.

The Wanda Charles Group now includes agents Logan Hawkins, Brantley Charles, Wanda Charles, Bethany Hart, Amanda Williamson

Wanda Charles admits that she was nervous about taking the next step. After three years with Ebby Halliday, and an additional 12 years in real estate before that, she had decided to switch from individual agent to group status.

When the Wanda Charles Group debuted in October, it placed sixth in transaction volume for groups under the Ebby Halliday umbrella. The next month, it moved up to fifth, and then nearly forth by year’s end. In January, Charles relocated from Frisco to a recently opened Ebby office in booming Prosper.

“It was definitely hard for me to leave where I was in the Frisco office, but at the same rate, this is a huge opportunity for me to be a voice and grow a team here,” Charles said.
