The trend in newer Fort Worth developments is the attempt to recreate the Golden Age of neighborhoods and home construction from the 1920s and 30s.  Riverhills, Walsh, and Parks of Aledo are recent developments that desire the look-and-feel of neighborhoods that were built when many classic communities were created throughout the United States.

Back then there were no production builders.  There were no homes with turrets, discombobulated roof lines, and especially no stone-and-brick-and stucco combinations that are unfortunately seen throughout the Metroplex in many newer developments.

Mansfield is growing, growing, growing

In the 1850s R.S. Man and Julian Feild built a grist mill in an area southeast of the Trinity River near a community known as the Gibson Community.  The area where the grist mill was built soon became known as Mansfield.

Today, Mansfield is a thriving and growing community of more than 65,000 people … and growing by the second. (more…)

With a name like Hidden Road it better be selective!

Hidden Road in the Rivercrest neighborhood of Fort Worth is a street that needs explaining.

In the Fort Worth high-end luxury market there is a difference between exclusive and… (ahem)… EXCLUSIVE.

It’s one thing for a large home to be in a gated community and have plenty of nice amenities and features and cost a king’s ransom.

It’s another thing for a home to be located on a street whose name alone comes with an understanding of luxury, exclusivity, and being one of a kind.  In Fort Worth, one of those streets is Hidden Road.

Mansion? It's a castle

I’d say 10,000 feet of living on 2 acres would constitute a lovely mansion! (photos: Concierge Auctions)

What constitutes a house being called a “mansion?”

There isn’t an exact definition, but according to our friends in the web, a mansion is a large home over 8,000 square feet that has features that you wouldn’t find in your typical home.  Features such as a large foyer entrance, marble floors, a wide staircase with designer railings.  But what about the number of TVs?

The equestrian estate at 6150 Bennett Lawson Road is nice, but wait until you see the horse barn and arena! (photos: Trey Freeze Media)

The Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo is just finished.  Now is the perfect time to highlight a property that might be of interest to those who were involved in the three week fête.

Consider the property at 6150 Bennett Lawson Road in Mansfield. At first glance, this 35-acre equestrian estate in Mansfield with a 2,900-square-foot, three-bedroom, three-bath home looks like a typical place to raise horses.

Sundance Plaza is a magical setting for sure

Sundance Plaza in Downtown Fort Worth is just one area that comprises Sundance Square (photos with permission from Sundance Square)

What do you know about Sundance Square?

Beyond the obvious answers of, “It’s located in Downtown Fort Worth,” and “I see it a lot on TV when ESPN comes to the Metroplex'” what else do you know?

Did you know that Sundance Square comprises 35 city blocks in the downtown area?  That there are over 4,000,000 square feet of retail, residential, and office space combined.  That in November 2017, over 760,000 people visited the area?  Did you know that the Dallas Morning News called it “the No. 1 place in Dallas to get engaged!” (Do you think they know it’s not in Dallas?)

If you haven’t visited this magical locale lately, you are missing out.

As the demand for housing in West Tarrant County and Parker County continues to increase, Williams Trew Real Estate, Fort Worth’s premiere real estate brokerage, opened a new office to better serve the growing demand.

Located at 405 F.M. 1187 South (try saying that five times quickly) in Aledo, Texas, the new office was officially opened by the East Parker County Chamber of Commerce last week.

Sure it was under 20 degrees but nothing was going to stop Williams Trew from a good old ribbon cutting

Houston Street is the place to be downtown

Does it drive you CRAZY when people pronounce the name “Houston” like “U-ston”?  Or how about the way those snooty Yanks pronounce it, “Howe-ston”?  What is that all about?  Do you think those people know they are completely butchering a fairly simple word? Houston.

Sidenote: There are a handful of people who have called me “Zeth” for years and years.  It’s like nails on a chalkboard.  Now you know how to get on my bad side!
