My 100th Closing in Richwoods and this is what I have seen are “Must Haves” of my clients.


20130924-134336.jpg

I have worked hard the past two years and have just eclipsed 100 sales in Richwoods as of yesterday. That is a combined total of K Hovnanian Homes, Toll Brothers, Landon Homes, Newcastle Homes and John Landon Signature Series homes. This has allowed me to be a part of 100 families needs vs. wants when building a new home.

I thought it would be very beneficial to list out what my clients thought and decided on. Again, everyone is different in style and taste but here are 10 of the “Must Haves” when you build a new home in today’s market.

20130924-171031.jpg

1. Wood Floors

It is almost 95% that in this price point ($380’s-$1mm) that there is somewhere in the house you will find hard wood flooring. Either glued down or hand scraped hardwood will do.

2. Media Room

Personally, I don’t understand the Fad, but a media room is a MUST HAVE for about 90% of my clients. Even if it is upstairs for some reason people just have to have one. This can also be your “Man Cave!”

3. Electrical Outlets for Flat Screens

The Flat Screen TV is taking over. But many builders do not change the outlet unless the buyers request it. Just think twice about it. Even if you don’t use it, you will have it for resell and it would be easy to hair behind a picture.

4. Laundry Room Location

Finally, people are realizing how much time they spend in the laundry room. Make sure in your plan that the location of the laundry room is around the majority of bedrooms.

5. First Floor Extra Bedroom

I can’t tell you how many clients walk into a house, look for the extra bedroom downstairs and can’t find one, then they walk out. It is very important to have an extra bedroom for parents, guests, hobbies etc.

6. Three Car Garages

At this price point, the majority of my clients purchase this as their next home. So many want a larger garage, no question about it.

7. Wider Hallways

Most hallways are 3 feet wide according to minimum standards for Frisco code. But if you can make them wider (4 Feet) it looks better and feels more roomy.

20130924-171315.jpg

8. Large Drawers in the Kitchen instead of Cabinets

Old school is cabinets. New school, larger drawers. Large drawers make more sense and allow you to easily access the items towards the back.

20130924-170918.jpg

9. Free Shower Caddies

This is something I learned first hand and if you address it with your builder at the time you are walking electricals, they are very likely to accommodate your request. It’s easy to build the box and they will either tile it or marble it and is ESSENTIAL when you are in the shower.

20130924-145848.jpg

10. Oversized Kitchens with Large Island

On average, over 10 hours a day is spent in every kitchen in America! It’s the most used room of any room in the house. Make it large, make it nice and it will make you smile!

Richwoods Landing and Country picking up Steam


20130127-151433.jpg

CONGRATULATIONS to the Johnson’s who are the 2nd closing in Richwoods Landing in Frisco!

Richwoods in Frisco is exploding in both sales and closings since March of 2012 when the builders started selling homes.

The two larger lot sections, The Landing and The Country, were the last lots to get the green light through the city of Frisco and were delayed 3 to 4 months behind Richwoods Place and Richwoods Glen.

It might sound weird that there has only been 2 closings so far, but wait until the end of March. It looks like there might be close to 10. And I know for sure there will be 5 because they are my clients.

The country is actually pretty close to the same numbers as the Landing. The Country now has a total of 3 closings but will have close to 8 or 10 by March.

The builders in The Country are John Landon Signature Series, Toll Brothers and Newcastle Homes. What surprises me the most is that out of those 11 to 14 homes, 6 will close at more than $800,000!!!! I was not expecting that at all, but an very happy to see it!!!

For more info about Richwoods in Frisco or any of the builders Toll Brothers, KHOV (K Hovnanian) Landon Homes, John Landon Signature Series or Newcastle Homes call Brad Holden at (469) 733-2723.

“And do not forget to ask Brad about his 4% Total Rebate that he provides his clients when purchasing a new home in Richwoods.”

Brad also is offering the rebate program for Lawler Park in Frisco, Phillips Creek Ranch in Frisco and The Arbors at Willow Bay in Frisco.

And don’t forget about Richwoods Hollow that will start in the low $300’s and will be opening in the next couple months. Call me today to be placed on my client waiting list to be called the day the new section opens!

A look inside Richwoods amenity center in Frisco


Richwoods in Frisco will not slow down!!! And a major reason is this one of a kind amenity center that the developer has brilliantly architected up and is delivering at the beginning of the community and not the end.

20130126-180017.jpg

Every community that boasts a workout facility cannot compare to this over 4,000 square foot area below. The two rooms at the back (I am guessing) will be rooms for classes or a specific type of machines.

20130126-181714.jpg

The one thing that will make the Richwoods amenity center stand out for residents is the banquet rooms. Each room will be available to residents to book or events or parties at a very reasonable price. The room in the back will also be able to open to the beautiful pool that will be an excellent backdrop for the gathering.

20130126-182025.jpg

The pool will speak for itself. From the road, it does not look that big. But the picture below is only half of it. The company that installed the pool made a comment that it is the largest they have ever built in North Texas.

20130126-182231.jpg

This with a beautiful stone exterior with the many parking spots available and the shower and bathrooms for the pool will most likely make Richwoods the dominant new home community in Frisco.

For more info about Richwoods in Frisco or any of the builders Toll Brothers, KHOV (K Hovnanian) Landon Homes, John Landon Signature Series or Newcastle Homes call Brad Holden at (469) 733-2723.

Richwoods in Frisco final touches on amenity center foundation


20121215-125516.jpg

The entire foundation of the Richwoods Amenity Center in Frisco has been poured this morning. It’s definitely an exciting thing to see.

The parking spots have also been poured living room for landscaping and etc.

Landon Homes, Toll Brothers, Newcastle and K Hovnanian Homes have all opened new sections of lots. The prices are all higher, but some are in a way better location.

For instance: Landon has opened up Richwoods Corners. It is a small section directly across from the amenity center in the front of the neighborhood. It is amazing and they already have 8 lots SOLD.

Things are definitely hopping on my own personal home as well. Below is the progress and it is looking fantastic!!

Why Richwoods in Frisco Matters!


20121104-093026.jpg

When my clients are considering different neighborhoods, the normal questions of location, quality of builder, schools etc., are always the main factors, which they should be. But there are a couple very noticeable items that get overlooked that make a community extra special. And these are why Richwoods really matters.

#1. Trees!!!!

I always have clients that ask where they can find a new home community with large mature trees that touch over the streets like in Highland Park in Dallas. This is almost never going to be found in new communities since there are mostly flat land areas and a couple large trees the developers have saved throughout the green areas.

In Richwoods, every home is REQUIRED to have 4 trees in their front yard!!! Normally in new home communities you will only see 2! This really helps the streets with a more natural look and will really help 10 to 20 years when they all provide shade on every lot.

20121104-094009.jpg

#2. Different Front Elevations

The developer has made sure that you cannot duplicate a house beside or across that is identical. This really helps the community and streets to have variation and uniqueness.

#3. 10 Million Dollar Amenity Center

Currently under construction, this enormous pool, fitness center and banquet room will make Richwoods the most sought after community in Frisco.

20121104-094840.jpg

#4. Quality New Home Builders

Toll Brothers, K Hovnanian, Newcastle and Landon Homes all have a high level of experience and build every home with the highest level of integrity. I have sold homes with each builder and each have great customer service and know how to make the process go as smoothly as possible with their years of experience.

For more information on Richwoods or available lots in Richwoods Place, Richwoods Glen, Richwoods Landing or Richwoods Country call Brad Holden at (469) 733-2723.

And don’t forget to ask about my 4% Total Rebate for my clients!
