Inside the Ladies Lounge Room at the DCC: Why Our Dallas Real Estate Market is Looking As Great As These Virginia Cook Agents!
Note to self: never wear white or Pucci when you are standing next to four gorgeous women, three of whom are Virginia Cook agents! I believe the prerequisite for being a Virginia Cook agent is to be shapely, blonde and beautiful. Or a curvy, gorgeous brunette like Jolene Crawford, who kept us blonde babes at bay! One of my favorite peeps in the whole wide world is Diane Duvall-Rogers who gathered us at the Dallas Country Club, newly nipped and tucked with a $60 million facelift, this week for lunch in the newly-finished Ladies Lounge! And take a look at those chairs!
Robbie hosted Briggs Freeman’s annual awards luncheon at the Dallas Country Club on February 29. Look at these tip top producers: Lindy Mahoney, Becky Frey, Claire Dewar, CEO Robbie Briggs, and the Eleazer Team. Behind her, Becky’ has a shiny award that reads “Over $35 million”. Sold, that is!
Doris Jacobs was named Allie Beth Allman & Associates #1 Top Individual Producer for 2011 out of 300 agents (!!!) at last week’s Awards Banquet at the Dallas Country Club! And may I add: here are two of the most beautiful women in Dallas real estate!

I may have told you that the Dallas Country Club sued the Dallas County Appraisal District earlier this year, claiming that the District has over-valued its lush 118 acres, which, as we all know, are located in a neighborhood of blue chip homes. The case is pending. DCAD put the value of the Dallas Country Club’s property over there on posh Beverly Drive at nearly $13.8 million, up about ten million dollars from a $3.5 appraisal last year. Sure got their attention. DCAD figured that with DCC’s new $27 million renovation, the land might be a bit more valuable, right? DCC did what every non-profit, non-tax paying blue-blooded American club aimed at keeping its dues low would do: it sued the Appraisal District.
The rumor was rampant in Dallas Real Estate circles last winter that Angelina Jolie, Brad and all the kiddos had leased this house — 3911 Beverly Drive — for the weekend while in town for the Super Bowl. If so, someone ought to ring up Mr. and Mrs. Pitt and tell them the place is now even more of a bargain. The Dave Perry-Miller listing is reduced from $7,995,000 to $7,500,000. Hot dang! The home is also open on Sunday, July 10 from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. No wonder it’s a hotbed of rumors, 3911 Beverly is beyond wonderful! There are 8 bedrooms, 7.3 baths, 9 living areas, a huge four car garage plus everything you could ever need in 12,250 square feet. Added plus: the home is on a giant 78 foot wide, 225 foot deep lot. Even more, it overlooks the Dallas Country Club, so the backyard seems to go on forever.
The rumor was rampant in Dallas real estate circles last week that Angelina Jolie, Brad and all the kiddos had leased a house on Beverly Drive for the weekend while in town for the Super Bowl. This house. The home is a Dave Perry-Miller listing at 3911 Beverly, listed for $7,995,000. I checked it out and it appears that Brangelina et al did NOT stay at this home, though a source did tell me he had seen a lot of Secret Service types around the place. The house is owned by Catherine T. and Robert C. Karlseng, he being a very big real estate attorney in town. I think the house is gorgeous and think it would be a GREAT deal for Angelina and Brad — there are 8 bedrooms, 7.3 baths, 9 living areas, a four car garage for when those kiddos start driving, and 12,250 square feet overlooking the Dallas Country Club. And for God’s sake, how much would a house like this cost in LA?
