As more people move across the nation for jobs and opportunities, so do more people become what’s termed “holiday orphans.” These folks are often left to their own devices for Thanksgiving, with family either too far away to travel to on short notice, their children at their ex-spouse’s home, or their jobs far too demanding to take a full Thanksgiving vacation. While not ideal, these situations have snowballed into the trend of “Friendsgiving,” which is when a group of holiday orphans gather to celebrate Thanksgiving in lieu of a family gathering. 

If you’re like me and you love to host gatherings but you’re not exactly eager to rehash the same discussions with your crusty, distant relatives, then you’ll find the idea of Friendsgiving rather appealing. And this new listing from Compass Dallas agent Phillip Murrell is the perfect modern townhome to host an elegant gathering of fellow holiday orphans (without the chainsaw-like snoring in the background of your least-favorite uncle). Plus, it’s so close to the Katy Trail, which will come in handy when it’s time to walk off all of that pie.

This stellar modern townhome at 4206 Buena Vista is yet another High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans. And if you can’t get this beauty under contract by Thursday, there’s always Christmas feasting in the future, so call Lisa Peters now to make sure you can move in and host the next big holiday gathering in that gorgeous, light-filled dining room.

Caroline Summers strikes again! This dynamic Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realtor has another great listing, and this time it’s in the super-hot SoHIP neighborhood (South of Highland Park, for the uninitiated).

This gorgeous semi-detached home has a beautiful modern facade and an even better location. It’s right in the honey pot of Uptown, north of Lemmon and west of Oak Lawn, and it has creative, open interiors with tons of texture. It has a rooftop deck, too. This luxurious urban property is definitely worthy of our High Caliber Home of the Week award.

And Caroline Summers is a Realtor who will work tirelessly to market her clients properties, too. This award-winning agent just received the Charles P. Freeman Spirit in the Sky award, as well as entrance into the Briggs Freeman Millennium club with more than $20 million in sales for 2014. Yes, Summers is driven and creative, which reminds us an awful lot of Lisa Peters at Caliber Home Loans. If you want a mortgage professional that will help you sail through closing, don’t take any chances and call Lisa Peters today.
