Realtors across Dallas are taking note as poorly conceived remodels and flips proliferate in the market. It’s not hard to find fault with some of them, as obviously uneven tile, shoddily installed appliances, and hastily painted walls are more common than we’d like to admit.

“Whatever happened to craftsmanship?” you might find yourself asking. The truth? Craftsmanship comes with patience and experience, and you’ll find in homes where a contractor works directly with an architect.

And that’s what you’ll find at this High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans. It’s a listing from David Griffin and Company Realtor Bart Thrasher, who is really a triple threat. Not only does his market homes, but he’s an experienced contractor and works side-by-side with his incredible wife, Karen, in their boutique design brand Thrasher Works.

“There was a great collaboration between builder and architect, and it shows,” Thrasher said of this beautifully remodeled ranch in the Lake Park Estates neighborhood of East Dallas. “Matthew Simons of Urban Dwellings LLC and Thrasher Works worked hard to create a home that stands out from the neighborhood.”

Bart says that he and Karen had a strong desire to create architectural significance in a home and to create something that will stand the test of time.

Mission accomplished.
