It’s a homecoming of sorts says Britt Lopez, who has been with Keller Williams since 2004 — back when Dallas City Center was a franchise of the brand. When Dallas City Center split from the brokerage and became independent, Lopez decided to go to Keller Williams Urban, where she has been since 2012. Now, she’s back with Kevin Caskey and his team of top-performing agents.

“For me, it’s a fresh start. It’s a new year, and it’s important for me to do that, to start over,” Lopez said. “I need to be around people who are like me, who work as hard as me, to keep me up there. I believe that an agent is only as good as the agents around them, and Dallas City Center is just a good working environment.”

6426 Westlake Front

What a fantastic home that really typifies “move in-ready” for me! For a home to be move in-ready, it has to:

  • Have immaculate neutral paint and fresh baseboards and trim,
  • Have gorgeous floors that are in tip-top shape,
  • And have a kitchen that is ready to plug-in and go!

This home, a 1937 traditional cottage, has all of these things, as well as some fantastic light fixtures and beautiful living areas. There are three bedrooms, two full baths, an updated kitchen, and more than 1,800 square feet, making this home at 6426 Westlake a perfect, cozy family property. This home, located inside Lakewood’s Country Club Estates, is listed with Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s Realtor Karla Trusler for $515,000.

Dogleg Ranch Bandera

Beauty seems so fleeting at times. Wouldn’t it be great to capture a moment, your home’s moment, in a book that you could share and hold on to for generations? Read more about the company that can do it — for a price, of course. That’s what Jane Stieren and Bill Lacy did for their Bandera ranch pictured above.

Those with family estates and deep pockets will love these gorgeous books created by a husband-and-wife company called Kubaba. Read about it on SecondShelters.com.

Dallas Modern Cover

Still looking for the perfect gift for your favorite Realtor, stager, photographer, architect, or house porn enthusiast? Dallas Architecture Forum has come out with just the thing: a monograph (a fancy word for coffee table book) about Dallas modern architecture. “Dallas Modern” features 20 of the most outstanding (you guessed it) modern homes in Dallas, with each property getting its very own chapter.

The book includes detailed photographs of the interiors and exteriors of the homes, as well as essays and floorplans. The 11-by-11, 215-page, glossy hardback book comes with a colorful dust jacket and will set you back $74.14 with tax and shipping.

That’s a paltry sum, we think, to have the opportunity to gaze at these beauties whenever you want. Interested? Order here.

 

10741 Eden Roc Back

We know that there are a ton of midcentury modern homes in Sylvania Dells, an area of Lake Highlands where architecture is eye candy. We featured a unique listing from Ed Murchison just a short jog from today’s High-Caliber Home of the Week, and it was a midcentury modern with colored paneling and a unique floor plan, too.

However, 10741 Eden Roc surpasses all expectations with more that 4,000 square feet of wide open space on an acre lot. This home has been painstakingly preserved, with gorgeous expansive floors and the coolest open concept. You know, Realtors often put the words “MUST SEE!” in a listing description, and I usually just glaze over it. For this home, though, with its incredible windows, amazing back deck, and cool master suite, I really, REALLY want to see it!

All of these things — top-of-the-line design, amazing architecture, and perfectly preserved interiors — make this a high-caliber home. A home like this deserves a lender that’s going to look out for you and make sure that your dream becomes a reality. That’s what Lisa Peters at Caliber Home Loans does with her clients. She’s a mortgage professional that takes the time to make sure that there are no financing hiccups at closing. Find out what Lisa Peters can do for you today.

Trust us: Not all Christmas shopping is fun. A lot of it is an anxiety-fueled race to the finish line and that is the opposite of fun. So if you’re looking for an excuse to enjoy yourself while doing some legitimate Christmas shopping, look no further than the Bernadette Shaeffler Collection showroom in the Dallas Design District.

2211 N. Fitzhugh Front

We’ve talked a lot about East Village and the neighborhood’s battles with commercial development, but we don’t really talk too much about the homeowners who would be affected by a huge big-box store moving in nearby. This beautiful townhome at 2211 N. Fitzhugh is a great example of an East Village property, though. This sleek, open home has everything you could want in an urban address, with three bedrooms, three full baths, and a gorgeous deck for entertaining.

This is a Clay Stapp + Co. listing from Realtor Matt Scobee, and it is just phenomenal inside! Jump for more!
