On average, flipping a home takes between eight to 12 weeks in most markets. This, of course, includes extremely modest projects as well as those that are higher end. It doesn’t sound like a lot of time to really get the feel for a property, to really transform it, to realize its full potential. 
 
That’s what’s so refreshing about Spruce Designs, helmed by David Griffin & Co. agents Micky Carr and Brent Conner. Their latest project at 11705 Parwen in Forest Place is a 1983 ranch that has been carefully reimagined into a beautiful luxury home with so many engaging finishes. The tile alone in this artful single-story home is worth a small fortune, though the attention to detail with the finish-out and floor plan easily make this a worthy High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans

Headshot 2014 Hi Rez Micky

There’s so much more to the real estate business in North Texas than sales numbers, notable listings, and a brokerage pedigree, but we don’t often get to focus on who our neighborhood Realtors really are, what they’re passionate about, and what inspires them.

That’s the goal of our High-Caliber Agent series, which takes a more introspective look at some of the best real estate agents the our region has to offer. These agents don’t just focus on closings and contracts, but instead treasure and appreciate the people who make the business.

Our second High-Caliber Agent sponsored by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans has succeeded at pretty much every aspect of the real estate business, but returned to his roots as a builder. Micky Carr, who founded Spruce Designs with two of his childhood friends, not only has a thriving real estate business with David Griffin & Company Realtors, but has taken his brand to a whole new level with his design-build firm. See what inspires this real estate Renaissance man, our High-Caliber Agent sponsored by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans after the jump!

GetMedia-1When we came across this 1955 ranch reborn as a Hill Country modern, we were intrigued. It takes a savvy, experienced contractor to remodel a home to this level of sophistication. Guess who whipped 7242 Midbury Drive, into shape?
