Svetlana Grujic with Compass has an eye for design. In fact, her head-turning listings are garnering attention and selling quick! Case in point — our Friday Five Hundred from last week is already pending. But do not fret! She has a new property in up for grabs that is equally impressive. So much so, we couldn’t help but share it with you right away.

From Drab To Fab

Enter the four-bedroom, three-full-bathroom beauty on Faircrest Drive. The Lake Highlands looker is a modern ranch that was taken to the studs and completely rebuilt with timeless touches throughout.

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…)

The right renovations have the power to transform a house from dated to darling. We’ve found just such an example in Lake Highlands, where an open floorplan and sleek updates have transformed a 1974 home into real eye candy. 

Our Thursday Three Hundred at 11029 McCree Rd. hits all the high notes with clean lines, lots of natural light, and long lines of sight that make it seem even bigger than its 1,950 square feet. 

Sitting near near Walnut Hill Lane and Plano Road, this property is zoned for Richardson ISD and has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and two living areas.

When you are looking for a Realtor, you should seek out someone who is more than a face on a bus bench. And truthfully, referrals don’t always tell the whole story. What you really want is someone who will negotiate for you, outsmart the competition, and seek out the best opportunities.

That’s Svetlana Grujic‘s M.O., and she’s got the attitude to go with it. She’s not really cocky — she’s just that good! It’s a stellar combination that we just had to share with our readers.

Naturally, all that attitude reminds us of Jeff Lindigrin at Great Western Home Loans. What has your lender done for you lately? Find out what you’re missing by calling Jeff Lindigrin at Great Western Home Loans today.
