Welcome to CandysDirt.com, for the truly real-estate obsessed in Dallas and North Texas. Founded by the former editor of D Magazine’s DallasDirt, where she broke the news on where former president George W. Bush bought his Dallas home, CandysDirt.com offers readers House Porn, celebrity real estate, neighborhoods, what’s hot, (what’s not), sales insight, Realtor profiles, new developments, the “f” word (um, foreclosures, what were you thinking?), builder talk, real estate news and consumer Q&A’s. Come tax appraisal time, we have The Tax Doctor right here. We even have a real estate attorney on staff for the really tough questions. We do it all from our base in Dallas/Fort Worth, where we love to report the Dallas Dirt. Unlike 99% of the sites out there, CandysDirt.com is edited by a journalist who isn’t trying to sell you a home; a journalist who went to real estate school to sleep with the enemy and holds a Texas real estate license (this month, it’s with Ebby Halliday) but does NOT want to sell; a journalist who visits each property and neighborhood and kicks the tires hard in her Louboutins. Make no mistake: Candy Evans tells it like it is. Updated daily, reported accurately for the real estate consumer, and always spiced with dish from readers and local experts, CandysDirt.com is a daily fix for anyone who wants to know about real estate in Dallas/Fort Worth not just from the ground up, but from the dirt.

Send us homes you have designed, purchased, or just drooled over! We love any trends in real estate. Of course, when you email us photos, they become the property of CandysDirt.com and we reserve the right to print any and/or all at our discretion unless you specifically tell us otherwise, in an email that we receive. If you are sending us a photo for which you do not own the rights, please indicate as such, and tell us who the heck the content owner is, in your submission.

Do we accept advertising? Is the sky blue? At CandysDirt.com, advertising on the site does not influence our editorial coverage ONE BIT. We post our advertisers’ listings ONLY when they meet with our approval. In other words, no fugly here, unless we are making a point. (Or fun of them. My bad.) In fact, we have been known to scream about bathtubs that are not deep enough, doorways not wide enough, and wire coat hangers. Unlike our taste in wine, our rates are very reasonable. When it comes to Real Estate, the internet is where it’s at, baby. If you would like to be invited to advertise on CandysDirt.com, please see our advertising page.
PRESS INQUIRIES AND SUBMISSIONS

Requests for interviews, public appearances and speaking engagements should be directed to Candace@CandysDirt.com. Real estate brokers, agents, builders or their press representatives may wish to submit material for editorial consideration, and we welcome you with open arms and a nice glass of bubbly!
CandysDirt.com is a consumer information site but it cannot help publishing gossip and possible rumors, also conjecture, certainly opinions, all sprinkled in with accurately reported factual information. We are a lot of fun, but we are not perfect. (Damn.) The site may contain errors or inaccuracies. We do not guarantee, and no reliance should be placed upon, the correctness or reliability of CandysDirt.com content. Hey, this is the internet age: links to content and quotation of material from other sites are not the responsibility of CandysDirt.com. And sometimes when we’ve had too much to drink we mis-spell. Oops! But we really do want to get it right and will correct all factual inaccuracies if kindly brought to our attention.
