Dallas Is Booming With Luxury Real Estate On Every Corner!
By Alex
June 2, 2017

        Hop in your car, drive around, and what do you see?  Luxury homes for sale everywhere!  By now we all know that Dallas is where all the job are moving.  California was the place for jobs and growth back in the day, but now Texas is the new boom.  Dallas imparticular.  With that comes a lot of new or renovated homes.  Values are rising and that means luxury homes are starting to multiply like wild fire. 

       A luxury home has to be over $725,000 to be considered a luxury home.  Now that can vary slightly.  There are many homes right around that amount and boast so many bells and whistles.  With kitchens, bathrooms, and pools to die for.  Yes, it is hot in Texas during the summer, but that doesn't slow down our real estate market one bit this time of the year.  So I have been kicking it into high gear.  I have had more phone calls latley from buyers wanting a luxury piece of real estate to call home.  So I have been on the hunt in Dallas, Frisco, and Plano trying to find the big winner for numerous clients.  

       With a luxury price tag comes luxury wants and needs.  That means my job just got a little harder.  Luckily homes in that price list tend to check all the boxes on the list.  In the Dallas Metroplex when you start to get close to that $725,000 price point, the homes tend to get more and more picture perfect.  So that makes my job a little easier.  I love looking for luxury homes in the Dallas Metroplex since there are so many to choose from.  Nothing is better then finding my clients the home of their dreams.  Call me for all your buying and selling needs.

How To Become A Top Realtor In Dallas
By Alex
May 24, 2017

Being a Top Realtor in Dallas is no easy task.  I still have a long ways to go to compete with some of the top dogs in Dallas.  Last year I was "Rookie Of The Year" and voted "Best Business Dallas for Real Estate 2015".  I'm on my way to becoming the Top Realtor at Coldwell Banker Dallas.  I couldn't be happier.  

I have 6 closings scheduled over the next 3 weeks and 2 potential listings.  Real Estate is a little crazy right now.  I wish I was an octopus sometimes so I could handle all my clients.  Yet, I still manage to give all of them special attention.  Even if it means referring them to someone that will have their back covered.  I would rather refer them to another real estate agent if I know I can not give the 100% of my time.  The ball is rolling non stop and I hope it keeps going.  For the past 2 years I have been grinding my little tail off.  Working from sun up to sun down.  It has been non stop.  I finallly have found what works and what doesnt.  I had to make some cuts and take some risks.  Taking the risks is the most exciting.  I like the unexpected.

Everyday is something new.   Today I went to the gym at the crack of dawn, returned home, as soon as I walked in the door I got a call from a client, wrote an offer in 20 minutes, and got an executed contract within the matter of an hour...insaine!  That it the type of market that we are in right now.  I want to keep on pecking away so I can be one of the Top Realtors in Dallas.  Nothing would make me happier than being a power house.  All I can do is give it my best, remember to stay humble, and never give up.  May is the best month in my 2 years as a real estate agent.  Lets keep it going!  Call me for all your buying and selling needs!

New Homes Directory Dallas Hires Alex Prins To Run Their Real Estate Blog
By Alex
May 20, 2017

        Everyone loves new homes!  And not just a new listing or one that you have recently moved into.  What I am talking about is new construction homes.  Ones that have been built from the ground up with every square inch of the home built to your specific wants and needs, and if your thinking about buying one then you have come to the right place!    

        Dallas and the surrounding cities like Frisco and Plano are growing out of control with new builder communities.  The homes are beatuiful and priced pretty competitive.  There are currently over 30 different new home communities in the Dallas/DFW Metroplex.  Some of the builders include Peter Shaddock, David Weekly, Lennar, Toll Brothers, and many more.  Recently, I was hired by New Homes Directory to write blog posts for them.  So let's just say I am a little more brushed up on new construction homes.  

        The past few weekends I have been in Frisco showing new homes.  Sometimes I think I am more excited about seeing the homes rather then my clients.  As a trusted real estate expert, New Home Directory has chosen me to blog about new construction, the real estate market, local developments in Dallas, what's going on in my daily real estate life, and much more.  I am so excited!  Call me for all your buying and selling needs.

May 18, 2017

        K104, Katy Trail Weekly, White Rock Weekly, The Dallas Voice, The Hattiesburg American, Coldwell Banker, and other media platforms were moved this weekend for Mother's Day.  And not because they bought a new house or anything like that.  I released my short-film, Make A Heart A Home, on Youtube this weekend and it has touched so many people.  It truly has been an emotional, but amazing journey so far.  

       I have been working non stop to try and get my story into the hands of as many people as possible.  That means emailing, writing, tweeting, and talking to everyone that I can.  I have been working non stop to promote my short film.  It hasn't been easy, but Dallas is an amazing city made of loving people.  Everyone that has a heart and an ear has been willing to hear me tell my story about being adopted.  In the process people have gotten to know me more, and I have gotten to know them.  

        There have been numerous people that have shared their adoption story with.  Whether they were adopted or they adopted children themselves.  Also, a few people have said that they want to adopt as well.  This is like music to my ears.  It makes me so happy to see other children adopted like me.  More Coming Soon...

Adding Curb Appeal Will Sell Your Home In This Busy Real Estate Market! Trust Me!
By Alex
May 9, 2017

        How do I sell my home?  It will sell itself won't it?!  The anwer is no!  In todays market you have to make your home stand out.  With popular shows like HGTV the average home buyer has become a little more savy when trying to get the most equity out of their home when selling.  Throughout the years they are adding small updates like wood floors, new paint and hardware to cabinets, adding back splashes, and other small things like new ceiling fans.  These are relatively not very expensive updates and will make buyers want to see your home when selling in online through search sites like Realtor.com or Zillow.com.  In todays world everyone is starting the process online of home buying and pictures are worth a thousand words.  One thing tho that is almost always neglected is curb appeal.  

       I have been a Top Dallas Realtor for over 3 years now.  Listing a home for sale is one of my favorite things to do.  It is an exciting time for everyone.  Yet, whether I am listing a home for sale or I am strolling up to a home with some buyers, I notice that the walk up to the front door is sometimes the most uninviting thing about the home.  You would think it's a no-brainer, but you would be surprised how many times it appears as if the home has been vacated because of emergency evacuation or something.  Often times the grass is dead, there are no flowers in the front yard, their are weeds in the gardens, the front door is jammed, or the backyard fence looks like it's a hundred years old.  Now 9 out of ten times the inside look picture perfect and it's obvious all the time and money was spent inside.  

        Adding curb appeal is not very expensive.  Flowers, pots, mulch, watering the grass, fertilizing, painting the front door, and other quick fixes are couple hundred bucks.  You are gonna make far more money when selling the home so what gives?  A home buyer wants to have the inside of the home look great, but if the inside looks a mess then sometimes they wont even want to go inside.  I know because it happens to me and my clients.  We walk up to the door and get a bad feeling.  It puts a bad impression in the potential buyers minds.  Also, when looking at homes all day it is easy to want to cut the day short and over look a home.  So you have to make your home stand out.  Pretty  homes come a dime a dozen.  So add a little curb appeal will get your home sold fast!  Call me for all your buying and selling needs.
