TV News Anchor Jane McGarry Credits Her Move to Dave Perry-Miller Agents

Ryan Streiff and Carmen DiPenti co-anchored Jane McGarry’s purchase in Preston Hollow.

Candy Evans of Candy’s Dirt recently interviewed Good Morning Texas host Jane McGarry about her recent move from a Fort Worth house to a Preston Hollow pied-à-terre, and the longtime television anchor was quick to credit Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate agents Carmen DiPenti and Ryan Streiff:

“Carmen is one of the most courteous, professional, thorough, and hungry young agents I have ever worked with. Ryan knows property in Dallas like the back of his hand. Most important, I trusted both of them; both advised me when NOT to buy a property as well as when we had hit one they liked. Had it not been for their determined hard work, I would not have found a home I am thrilled with.”

Nicely done, gentlemen.

Four-Bedroom Home in Lake Highlands Features an Extensive List of Upgrades


Situated atop a beautifully landscaped lot, the two-story, four-bedroom home at 8817 Arborside Drive is conveniently located near Royal Oaks Country Club, Moss Haven Elementary School, Lake Highlands High School, Harry Moss Park, and the White Rock Lake Trail system. Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate’s Carmen DiPenti, who is offering the property for $499,500, will hold it open to prospective buyers from 2 to 4 on Sunday afternoon.


The three living areas are immersed in natural light, especially the solarium, which features a skylight and a wall of windows providing views of the backyard. Shaded by mature trees, the yard features a wooden deck with a pergola plus plenty of green space. There’s also a MosquitoNix misting system in place to ensure pest-free enjoyment.




The sunken living room is the centerpiece of the first floor. Open to the solarium, formal dining room, and entry, it is bathed in sunlight from the large windows and doors across the front of the house. Its open configuration is accented by recessed lighting, exposed beams, a fireplace, and a wall of built-in shelves.




The kitchen features granite counters, a gas range, and stainless-steel appliances that are practically new. The adjoining breakfast room has more than enough space for a table, and there’s also bar seating at the end of the kitchen counter. Just beyond the breakfast room is the den, which is connected to the utility room and the attached two-car garage.




The master suite, which can be accessed from the solarium, has the same elegant laminate flooring as the rest of the lower level. The master bathroom features a double vanity, a tub beneath windows, and a separate glass-enclosed shower. The suite also includes a room that could be used as an office or nursery. Three more spacious bedrooms can be found upstairs.




Built in 1974, the home features upgrades throughout its 3,344 square feet, including a hail-proof roof (2011), state-of-the art gutters (2012), an electric garage door (2014), new heating and air-conditioning units (2014), a fully updated electrical system (2015), refinished cabinets (2015), and 11 inches of insulation added to the attic (2015).
