We sure are throwing “billion ” around a lot in these here parts — the Dave Perry Miller offices hit one BILLION in sales mid July, Briggs Freeman Sothebys hit one BILLION on July 24. And on August 16, Allie Beth Allman hit the BILLION dollar mark in residential real estate sales made since January. I spoke to ABA’s Duke Jimerson about this last week while touring the Inman Mortgage House of the Week, 8211 Inwood Road, an almost four million dollar jewel listed by Doris Jacobs.
Inwood Mortgage House of the Week: Unbelieveable Italian Farmhouse in Bluffview Built by TV Producer Tommy Habeeb
I think I’m out of words. This house is so freaking amazing, you’d better slice out some time here. And get tissue, you are going to drool. Dorothy, we are not in Dallas. This home is what you would find in LA, or Hollywood Hills: grounds large enough for a hunt, ocean-like pool, glass elevator with TV, a courtyard for Shakespearean drama, massage room, meditation room and an outdoor shower that puts the Joule’s car wash shower to shame. Are you in Tuscany? Looks like it, feels like it, even sounds like it, but you are within walking distance of Shinsei and yes, Inwood Bank!
And there is drama in every room.
Monday Morning Millionaire: Unkefer House on Beverly, Formerly Owned by Angie Barrett, Has Coffee Bar With Sink and Fridge IN THE MASTER CLOSET!
I call this a Dallas Blueblood house! I loved this home when Angie owned it, and I love it even more now that it’s back on the market. Ronald Unkefer, he of First Broadcasting fame, and his beautiful wife Terry Lee, bought 3301 Beverly from Angie Barrett in November, 2008 after selling a larger, and quite breathtaking home at 4412 Lakeside Drive. (That pup was listed at $12,995,000 with Ellen Terry!) I just don’t have words to describe what happens when you take an awesome house and spend a year and a half with Lisa Luby Ryan as contractor/designer, add a few square feet — in this case, a screened porch off the master suite, and then, voila! It’s uber awesome!
I’m just back from the beach, so I was catching up on my news reading when I saw that there was some pretty hairy crime in the Park Cities.
But I’m not going to let the news of a robbery at knifepoint make you think that Highland Park isn’t a safe place to make your nest. After writing the police blotter for a couple of years at Park Cities People, I can tell you that while crazy stuff does happen in Highland Park, the Highland Park DPS is full of top-notch, caring officers who bust their butts to keep their citizens safe.
Wow, big day for Lakewood real estate news. First broker peak at the Stanley Marcus house, and word that Allie Beth Allman has dramatically lowered the asking price of Mt. Vernon. It is now a cool $19 million. That’s a whopping ten million less than the estate’s original asking price of $29 million. No, wait. In April 2010, Mt. Vernon had an asking of $32, 500,000. So that is a $13,500,000 drop! What with Troy’s home on Highland sold, which was NOT in MLS, Mt. Vernon is now one of the highest priced listings in MLS. Only higher: 4939 Manson Court off Strait Lane at $29,995,000 and Dans Bois Crete over on Inwood at $19,500,000. The Crespi Estate, owned by Tom and Cinda Hicks, is still the highest priced home by a longshot in Dallas at $135 million, but it is NOT in MLS. Doug Newby has been marketing the Crespi estate bigtime to folks with private jets.
We are just absolutely in love with Alex Perry, y’all. I mean, how could we not be?! From his never-give-up attitude he inherited from his father and his grandfather, tennis great Fred Perry, to his winning smile and meteoric rise at Allie Beth Allman & Associates, Perry has earned his stripes as a senior VP in one of the regions leading brokerages. He may be young, but we wouldn’t dare confuse his age with inexperience.
Perry took a few moments to answer a few fun questions for us, and we were just laid out by his thoughtful answers! Read on to find out more about this amazing Dallas agent and why he gives every client the Michelin star treatment! Continue reading
I have known Laurie Mah forever, and now I will get to see way more of her! Laurie has left the Greenville Ave. office of ReMax and joined the Ben Jones Group at Allie Beth Allman & Associates. I can hardly wait to give her a glass of wine and get her going on homes in Ennis and Corsicana… just getting my fingertips warmed up!

Several Dallas Realtors attended yesterday’s remarkable dedication for the George W. Bush Presidential Center, including independent agent Mickey Stuart and Dave Perry-Miller’s Steve Collins. I have not heard from her yet, but am certain Allie Beth Allman and Pierce were included, and Kari Schlegel may have accompanied her parents. Mickey, a Dartmouth buddy, gave me a full report, and shared some fabulous photos:
