The East Dallas Report: Will That Drop in Stonewall Jackson’s Academic Ratings Rattle Lakewood Real Estate?

Al and Erin Hill May Be Moving Out of Highland Park Home, Dismissing Staff – Dallas Real Estate News
Recall the story of Al and Erin Hill? A source now tells me that major changes have been made in the Hill household over there on Bordeaux. Last week, according to sources, employees were told they would be paid until the end of the month, and then their services would no longer be needed. And the Hills reportedly said they would be moving, but they did not say where or when. All employees have been paid in full, graciously thanked, and given letters of recommendation, though rumor has it the nanny brigade was downsized months ago.
May means great weather, less sneezing, and, in North Texas Real Estate parlance, time to grit our teeth over home appraisals. Property tax appraisals went out Friday, so this coming week we should be getting the hard, cold news about property taxes. Dallas rates have gone up. Property values have gone down. Will the Appraisal District reflect this in our bills or look the other way to sop up much-needed revenue?
This is why it probably pays to subscribe to the Dallas Morning News, who is reporting that Al G. Hill III, descendant of legendary oilman H.L. Hunt, and his wife, Erin Nance Hill, were indicted last week on several felony counts of mortgage fraud.
