How Much Do Apartments In Dallas Cost?
By Alex
October 1, 2015

Dallas is quickly becoming a concrete jungle.  The city is booming and vibrant with lush greenery, city lights, and new construction going up on monthly basis.  One thing that is constant is new apartment complexes being constructed and people needing to live in those apartments.  With that comes decked out buildings with all the bells and whistles.  Boutique style apartments are the new craze.  From lobby to your unit everything is planned out and imaculate.  Truth of the matter is that as nice as it is there is a price tag.  Most places in Dallas rent for about $1.25-$1.50 per square foot and next year the buzz around town is that it will be $2.00 a foot.  You could honestly buy a home with your monthly rent amount, but city living is amazing.  As a real estate agent in Dallas, I love being in the mists of all of it.  From suburbs to downtown lofts.  I love it all and so do my clients.  Also, with an apartment you get anything from building activities, parties, valet trash, beautiful pools, dog walkers, room service, and the list goes on.  Given you could own a house for $2,500, $3,00, even $4,500 a month, but does it come with valet trash?  I don't think so.  I'm in!

Dallas is quickly becoming a mini New York and it's exciting.  One thing for sure is that we have plenty of homes and apartments to put you right in the middle of all of it.  Call me for any of your apartment needs!  

Dallas Lofts For Rent-Gotham Style

My most recent client loves loft style apartments in Downtown Dallas, and that is what I gave him.  We went looking this weekend at all the different lofts downtown and I slowly noticed a trend.  Most of the downtown lofts have this distinct feel to them.  There was this ominous feeling with all the exposed brick, dark halls, and old creaky buildings.  Now don't get me wrong, there are the updated urban lofts.  Still some of them had this loomin feeling and for a moment we forgot that we were in Dallas and instead it felt like New York.  The old Dallas Power and Lights building had the biggest amount of character and felt like something dropped out of a Batman movie.  Scratch New York and give me Gotham City!  It was dark inside and had lots of rot iron.  Not just that, but the prcies were very competitive.  As soon as you walk it you feel like your not anywhere in Dallas or even Texas for that fact.  

After 2 days of showings, my client ended up not going with the whole Gotham Style of the lofts and instead did updated urban lofts.  He loved the exposed brick and raw feeling to everything, but was drawn to some of the modern features of the lofts at the Mosaic.  Regardless we had fun and my client and I got to see a whole other park of Dallas and now has a new place to call home.

Dallas Real Estate Agent-Million Dollar Listings

Being a real estate agent in Dallas comes along with a lot listings.  There are close to 3 million people in the Dallas Metroplex and it is growing everyday.  With all the competition you have have a game plan.  I was fortunate enough to have closed a 1.6 million dollar deal at my office, buy now it has created a frenzy.  Now I want to do more volume.  I have had a great start in real estate and I have a game plan to reach that goal of becoming one of the top agents in Dallas.  Working for Rogers Healy helps with keeping my mind on the prize as he is a top producer.  You only learn from the best.  My goal is the close a million dollars in luxury real estate every other month.  Thats 6 million in production a year.  Not too bad of a goal.  For now I'm putting all my efforts into branding myself and talking to as many people as possible.  I know I can reach my goal in time and for now I want to land another million dollar lisitng and start knocking items off my list.

Bella Vita Custom Built Homes Dallas

As a Dallas Real Estate Agent I see a lot of custom homes.  From model homes, spec homes, custom homes, and really any kind of home out there.  It can be overwhelming sometimes with all the options for my clients wanting to build, but Rogers Healy and I love Bella Vita Custom Built Homes.  We tend to use them 90% of the time.  They take the upmost care in crafting the perfect home from the bottom up.  They literally start with a pencil and a paper and draw out every detail of your home.  Not only that, but they use some of the highest quality finishes.  There is nothing left to think about once your sit down with Bella Vita and start to plan out your new home.  Sometimes building isn't an option, but perhaps rehabbing a home instead and giving it a fresh new look.  Bella Vita can do it all.  I love all the work that they do and am happy to have the chance to work with them.  

It doesnt matter if your project is big or small.  Bella Vita Custom Built Homes is the finest in Dallas and the DFW Metroplex and they can do it all.

Being A Top Dallas Real Estate Agent and Star Wars 7??!!..

So the Star Wars 7 trailer for the Force Awakens came out this week, and real estate agents and fans alike were super excited.  Wait.  Real Estate Agents? 

For those of you that dont know; Star Wars The Force Awakens is the newest installment of the Star Wars franchise and is planning on being the biggest movie this year.  It's going to smash records all across the board.  So how exactly does this pertain to being a real estate agent?  Well Star Wars is all about being chosen in life to do good.  As a real estate agent I feel like there are a lot of blood thirsty, cut throat Realtors in Dallas.  They litterally will leave you high and dry to get a listing.  I have been subject to it before and its frustrating.  I personally feel like Luke Skywalker from Star Wars and feel that I am on a path in life and through that path it has lead me to real estate.  I feel like this is my career that I am suppose to be in and I will do this for the rest of my life.  With that said, I hope to stay humble and never get to the point where I am mowing people down to get on top.  I know that I will be top real estate agent in Dallas and I will get that way by being personal and kind to everyone.  There are over 2 million people in the Metroplex in Dallas and there are plenty of buyers, sellers, and deals to go around.  No need to be cut throat like Darth Vader and what not.  So in other words...go watch the Star Wars Trailer and get pumped up to see the Force Awakens.
