Some Call It Retro Fabulous But What Do YOU Think ?

retro-fabulous

Over the summer, I’ve shown some cool retro-fabulous properties everywhere from Hurst in the mid-cities to Lake Highlands near White Rock Lake in Dallas. Some clients love to see original details like pink tile in the bathrooms or a charming original fireplace. Other clients just plan to completely update the property.

A Tour of Bishop Arts District in Dallas in 30 Seconds

Video

Over the weekend, my wife and I decided to grab some (amazing) Tex-Mex at one of our new favorite restaurants in Bishop Arts District. El Corazon de Tejas features the BEST chicken enchiladas and homemade corn tortillas on the planet! Afterward, we toured some of the nearby neighborhood and viewed a few of the currently-available properties.

Bishop Arts is a great historic neighborhood about 10 minutes southwest of downtown Dallas in Oak Cliff. It features great parks, historic homes, art, shops, and dining! My clients rave about the “town within the city” feel and great architecture. Check it out for yourself by starting your own property search by clicking HERE.

Give me a shout at ANY time – I’d be honored to be of help!

Check out my 30-second video tour with highlights from our afternoon. Enjoy!

It Would NOT Be Thanksgiving Without PIE

It Would NOT Be Thanksgiving Without PIE

When I was a kid, my stay-at-home Mom made the most awesome pies from scratch, so I’m officially SPOILED – desserts have to be really GOOD in order to get my attention. So, in the Bishop Arts District (Dallas) last weekend, my wife & I visited Emporium Pies. I had the Cloud Nine (caramel and butterscotch pudding with brown sugar merengue). Wow! By the way, their second location just opened in downtown McKinney, and you can even order online on the website just in time for Thanksgiving feasting.

Wishing you a Thanksgiving filled with amazing PIE & good conversation! Enjoy every minute of it!
