The Luxury Real Estate Market Is Still Hot For 2017 With More Million Dollar Listings!

        2017 isn't over yet and luxury homes sales are still on the rise.  Million Dollar Listings aren't just for celebrity Realtors on Bravo TV.  They are being listed here in Dallas.  With rising prices comes higher price tags.  This means listing luxury homes are up for grabs and being on top of the market is important.  You have to strike while the iron is hot whether you are a buyer or a seller or a Realtor.  Miss the boat and you risk missing out on equity.  Doesn't everyone want more money?

        Whether you like our current President, Donald Trump, or not one thing is for sure.  Markets are hot and hitting all time highs.  People are hopeful, but in the flash of an eye it can all change.  Nothing lasts for ever tho.  All good things come to an end.  That includes market values.  Your home is one of your most valuable assets.  If you live in Dallas then you know that what was once the home that no one wanted is now the home that people are literally fighting to get their hands on.  This puts homeowners at an advantage.  They can price their home higher then they could have ever imagined and watch their bank accounts get a few extra zeros.  Neighborhoods in Dallas are being dotted with more and more million dollar and luxury listings. 

        Dallas is changing.  The DFW Metroplex is growing as areas are becoming over saturated.  This is making your commute to work longer, but you can get a mini mansion at a reasonable price in surrounding cities.  Eventually, we will be considered one of the most expensive places to live in the U.S.  It is a domino effect starting at the center of Dallas and slowly moving out.  Places like Frisco are still boasting luxury homes, but the price per sqaure foot is still a ways away from Dallas.  We still sit at around $300 a square foot for a luxury home in Dallas, but on average around $140 a square foot for a luxury home in Frisco or Plano.  The only thing is that Plano and Frisco is full of new homes so they are built much larger then here in Dallas.  So if you live in anyone of those cities then you literally are sitting on a gold mine.  This is why more then ever you have to pay attention to the housing market and talk to a Realtor to see how to make your next move.  Call me for all your buying and selling needs.

Lets Sell A Luxury Lake House Together and Make 2017 The Best Year In Real Estate!

        Lets sell a luxury lake house together!  2017 has been my best year in Real Estate so far.  I have put in the hard work on so many levels to get where I am at in my career today.  At 31 I can say that I am turning into a young adult who truly loves what he does.  Not that I didn't love my previous career in the medical aesthetic industry.  I did study with world renowned dermatologists and travel around the U.S. which wasn't too shabby.  Being a Real Estate Agent is truly my calling tho.  Everyday I wake up loving what I do and try to figure out new ways of how to grow my business.  Being a Dallas Real Estate Agent allows me to be creative, strive to stay ahead of the pack, and to always think bigger.  No two days are ever the same.  Also, no two listings are ever the same.

        Say hello to 1849 Panther Creek Pass in Mt. Vernon TX.  It is my newest luxury listing.  Growing up on a lake was one of the best parts of my childhood.  I would look out onto the horizon and dream.  Now I get to list one of the most exclusive pieces of water front real estate in Texas.  It is a dream come true, literally.  Much wiser people then I would say that everything in life comes full circle.  So maybe this is one of those circles.  With a luxury price tag of $1,475,000.00, 1849 Panther Creek Pass doesn't hold out on any of the stops.  It truly is the gift that keeps giving.  The owner of this home said that he was looking for a lake near Dallas that reminded him of some of the lakes in Northern Michigan.  Afterall, Dallas is known for having some pretty weedy and muddy lakes...didn't they just find a shark in Lake Lewisville over 4th of July?  I digress.  This 4,500 sqaure foot home has been dubbed the "Thistle Dew".  It is nestled in the rolling hills and piney forest around Lake Cypress Springs.  Which is only a little over an hour from Dallas.  It was custom built from the ground up in 2009 out of stone and cedar.  When you walk up the grand entrance you know you are about to enter something amazing.  The inside boasts 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, hand scraped hardwood floors, floor to ceiling windows, a bonus 1,200 unfinished basement, chef kitchen, master retreat with spa oasis and so much more.  This is truly a dream home.  Everything about this home feels luxurious from the granite countertops to the wooden vaulted ceilings.  Not to mention the amazing outside of the home.  There is plenty of space to entertain on the massive second story deck, screened backporch, fire pit area, or dock.  This house is a must see. 

        Million Dollar Mansions might seem like they are only reserved for the Dallas Elite or Highland Park zip code, but there is a whole other world out there.  It called "Lake Life".  Any lover of the great outdoors that needs to escape the city will love 1849 Panther Creek Pass on Lake Cypress Springs.  There are lots of lakes dotted around Texas, but very few take your breath away.  So pack your bags, leave behind the grind of the city, call your local Realtor, and get ready to call this your home.  It's waiting for you!

How To Become A Top Dallas Realtor?...Start Writing A Real Estate Resume To Stand Out To Homeowners!

        Being a Dallas Real Estate Agent or a Real Estate Agent anywhere in the world is one of the most important jobs anyone could have.  You are responsible for helping someone sell one of the biggest assets they will ever own.  So sitting around, working from home in your pajamas, while eating ice cream is not going to cut it anymore.  Most people get into real estate because it allows them to work from home.  They get to be their own boss and make up their own set of rules.  In todays housing market you can not sit around and be idle if you want to be a Top Dallas Realtor.  Dallas real estate is on fire right now.  You have to work as if you are interviewing for a Fortune 500 company when meeting and talking to a homeowner.  Now it doesn't mean you can't be yourself.  You don't have to wear the finest threads or go buy a flashy car.  No one really cares about that.  Instead you have to start promoting why you are the best man for the job...I'm talking about going old school and writing a resume. 

        Dallas is very competitive.  It is like a drug once you start gaining new business.  It shows that you are doing something right.  You are a business owner just like any other business minus the brick and mortar.   Now, some Real Estate Agents are born with a silver spoon in their mouth.  A good majority of Dallas has Realtors who are the son or daughter of a developer.  With Dallas booming so much right now it is very common to see a million dollar luxury home being built and a family member will list it.  That would be a dream come true, but most of us are grinding everyday.  It can be a struggle.  We all are trying to get new listings.  Sure buyers are great to work with, but lisitngs is where it's at.  A lot of us tend to overthink it tho when marketing to a homeowner.  They just want to know who the best man or woman for the job.  So selling yourself before even stepping through the door is key.  Writing a Real Estate Resume is one of the best things I have ever done for growing my business.

        There are many ways of marketing your Real Estate business.  I have found that writing a reusme is one of the best ways to get a listing.  Everytime you go to a listing appointment it is really like going to a job interview.  What do we do when we go to an interview?  We type up a resume.  We try to sell ourselves so we can get the appointment scheduled.  A lot of Realtor are not doing this.  They are sending out typical postcards with the intend of having a catchy slogan on it.  Sellers want to know your assets.  Start sending them a resume with all your marketing materials.  Believe it or not, but it will make you stand out.  Psychologically it will put the home owner in the position that they are the boss..which they are.  It will also put you in the position that you are not only a professional, but that you are eager to get hired.  Look, there are over 30,000 differnt Real Estate Agents in Dallas.  I get to visit with a lot of them.  I have probably met a couple thousand of them at different events.  Alot of them are my friends.  However, I have only heard of one other Top Dallas Realtor that is doing this.  He said writing a resume was one of the best things he has done for his career...  Start treating every homeowner like they are the CEO of a Fortune 500 company, and start sending out your resume!  It will be the best thing you have ever done.  Resumes will never go out of style!  Call me for all your buying and selling needs.

Merry Christmas! Tax Reform Passed and Dallas Real Estate Agents Are Rejoicing!

        Merry Christmas!  2017 is almost over and we have so much to be grateful for!  Stocks are at record highs, job growth is through the roof, and tax reform was passed right before Christmas!  Many Americans are going to benefit from this.  This tax reform is the biggest in U.S. history since the Reagan era!  Trump called it a "Middle Class Miracle" recently.  We all are hopefully though some are sceptical.  With the proven track record of economy booming this year...I'm going to be hopeful without getting too political.  This is good news for everyone if all is true.  Dallas Real Estate Agents will be happy too.  There is a lot in this tax reform package that will effect millions of Americans including the hard working Dallas Realtors.  It came right in time for the Holidays as well.  Everyone rejoice!

        Christmas is that one time of the year when you get to spend time with friends and family.  Everyone is jolly.  There is a lot of running around, spending money of gifts, cooking, and celebrating.  Then on December 26th it is back to business as usual.  Everyone gets to go back to their normal lives right before the New Year.  Having tax reform will impact so many lives.  This is the best gift that anyone could ask for.  Everyone likes a little extra money in their pocket.  There are so many hard working Americans that feel they can never catch a break.  Tax reform will give consumers confidence.  It will give people hope.  That means homes sales which are already high for Dallas will most likely be even bigger for next year.  Dallas Real Estate Agents have been hitting record numbers in home sales for 2017.  Myself included.  Now people that have been putting off that home that they have always wanted will most likely take that next big step. 

        Owning a home is the biggest investment you will every make.  With a booming economy people will make a dream of owning a home a reality.  Isn't that the American dream after all?  To own a home?  So 2018 could be the biggest year for home sales that Dallas has ever seen!  I am truly thankful for the past year in home sales that I have hit.  I work non-stop.  My tax advisor even told me that I could see more money in my pocket when it comes time to do my taxes.  I am a business owner as a Realtor so saving money on expenses is always welcome.  2018 is going to be a big year in Real Estate.  We all will have to see exaclty what happens with our pocket books, but lets all keep our fingers crossed.  Everyone has so much to be thanful for.  God bless and Happy New Year!  Call me for all your buying and selling needs.
