Agents on Hand To Celebrate MetroTex’s 100th Anniversary


Established in 1917, MetroTex Association of REALTORS represents the entire North Texas region as the area’s largest REALTOR association. It is the second largest Association of REALTORS in Texas, and fourth in the country! They offer programs to advance agent development, lobby for both consumers and REALTORS in Austin, promote diversity within the field and more.

For their centennial anniversary this year, MetroTex is celebrating with tree planting events across DFW to show their “deep roots.” The kickoff was held January 21, 2017, at Moore Park in Dallas. Fifteen Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate agents were on hand for the event. Many of these agents from across the firm’s five Dallas offices (Highland Park, InTown, Lakewood, Park Cities and Preston Center) are serving/have served fellow real estate professionals — and ultimately the buyers and sellers who rely on them — in various leadership capacities with MetroTex.

To drive home the organization’s ongoing commitment to the community after 100 years of helping people find homes across North Texas, MetroTex will be planting 20 new trees in four locations and then handing out more than 100 trees at each event to the public. Not only do these events demonstrate the organization’s history in and gratitude for Dallas, they help bring greenery and cleaner air to the parks and greenspaces we all love and enjoy.

We appreciate their involvement and dedication to serving other REALTORS and ultimately all of North Texas in this way!

Enjoy More Than 4 Acres of Ranchland That’s Minutes From White Rock Lake


6831Fisher_house


Do you remember that radio jingle sung by a man who claimed to have “a ranch in downtown Dallas”? Such a property would be impossible in reality, but the 4.2-acre parcel at 6831 Fisher Road is pretty darn close.

Despite being just 10 minutes from the central business district, this unique piece of urban acreage features everything you’d want for a rural lifestyle: cross-fenced pastures, stables for six horses, a tack building, a chicken house, and a fish pond. Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate’s Judy Garrett and Rob Elmore are marketing the ranch for $3,400,000.

Located in the Lakewood area, the property backs up to the recently rebuilt trail leading to White Rock Lake. The average person driving down Fisher Road wouldn’t even know it’s there because that side of the property is lined with tall trees, assuring complete privacy.

The stone and stucco home with a standing seam metal roof was recently remodeled with energy efficiency in mind. Its 5,942 square feet include five bedrooms, four full bathrooms, two half-baths, four living areas (including a fabulous exercise or media room), two dining areas, a state-of-the-art wine room, and a yoga or massage room.

The outstanding gourmet kitchen features granite counters, a custom breakfast bar fashioned from mesquite wood, a Wolf six-burner cooktop, double ovens, two dishwashers, an ice maker, stainless-steel appliances, and an incredible walk-in pantry. The kitchen is open to two living areas and the breakfast room — all overlooking an expansive patio that leads to either the stables or to the pool area.

The heated and cooled pool is supplemented by a separate spa and a cabana. The spacious cabana offers a kitchen, covered and uncovered dining areas, a half-bath, and an outside shower.

Multiple patios overlook the beautiful acreage, 3.16 acres of which qualify for the agricultural exemption on the tax rolls. Several vehicles can fit in the driveway behind the electric gate, but there are also attached (three-car) and detached (two-car) garages. Ranch vehicles can access the stables and pastures via a separate entrance off the alley.
