Lake HighlandsWe pride ourselves on finding the cutest remodels, the hottest new construction, the sexiest staging in North Texas. But we apparently missed this transformed Modern Farmhouse in Lake Highlands recently.

Compass Realtor Svetlana Grujic threw down the gauntlet in our Realtor-friendly Facebook group, Getting the Dirt.

“Cannot believe that CandysDirt.com did not “get the dirt” on this remodel:),” she said. So we asked her to tell us all about it.

Turns out, we’ve seen Grujic’s work before. Remember last May, when we talked about another Lake Highlands home on McCree Road that got a sleek update? That was, she said, the start of her showcasing her abilities to help investors make the most of the properties they intend to flip.

“It all started with a flipper that tried to remodel 11029 McCree Road and 2617 Beechmont Dr.,” she said, adding that the homes needed a little help after sitting on the market for a while. “So I was called to the rescue.”

“I took over, did a small remodel, and some staging,” she continued. “McCree was sold for 25 percent more than asking, and Beechmont for 30 percent — the buyers for Beechmont were so in love with it, they purchased all the staging.”

That success got her a seller for life, it seems, since the investor reciprocated by putting even more faith in Grujic. (more…)
