Cambridge Homes at Heritage Creekside in Plano provide some very Modern Looks!


Cambridge Homes at Heritage Creekside in Plano is giving a modern option to the buyer in an absolute incredible location!

Cambridge has 11 sold with only 1 inventory home available.

The homes are smaller only able to go up to 3,300 square feet, but with every lot backing to an enormous green belt it’s a very good find for a new home buyer.

Heritage Creekside is located close to the President George Bush Tollroad, and Highway 75. Like literally a couple minutes drive.

These homes won’t be for everyone, but are absolutely perfect for some.

The modern look is an acquired taste and every client I have that comes from the East and West coast are looking for this look.

And add in lots that look like below as your backyard and it’s going to be tough to beat.

Another big plus to this location is these bones are within walking distance of Rodeo Goat Ice House and Flying Fish which are coming in at the corner of Alma and Custer!

Sabine Park Estates by Gehan Homes in Plano has their Final Opportunities.


Gehan Homes at Sabine Park Estates in Plano is down to their final opportunities.

Sabine Park is a smaller development with only 38 Lots. Gehan has done a good job with the buildout and larger lot size.

The location is an inner enfield location very well located between highway 75 and 121.

Currently, Gehan Homes has 7 available inventory homes which 3 are complete and ready for move in today!

The community was developed on a church property called Pitman Creek Church of Christ. The developer used the church’s existing Park, basketball court and large open soccer field and baseball backstop which was very smart!

Gehan Homes also has 4 lots available if a new buyer would like to pick their plan and build. Their current incentive is $12,000 to use towards the design center.

Final opportunities at the Villas at Preston Hollow by Shaddock Homes in Plano.


The Villas at Preston Hollow by Shaddock Homes fits the description of a “hidden gem.” It’s located in the heart of North West Plano and is only on one single street!

The community is backing to an approximate 50+ acre Plano Park called Heritage Park. Lots of baseball fields and open space. The proximity to Preston Road, Highway 121 and the Dallas North Tollroad just can’t be beat!

The Frisco ISD schools that are currently where the Villas of Preston Hollow feeds into are highly sought after! Riddle Elementary and Fowler Middle School are two of the best elementary and middle schools in the district. Lebanon Trail is the new high school that it is currently zoned.

12 of the 18 lots are Sold, which leave 6 that are available. 1 of those 6 is the stunning Model Home.

Surprising to me, this again is a North facing 4440-C Shaddock plan just like I posted at the other day at the Estates of Shaddock Park.

The flow and sight lines work through the entire house. Shaddock did an excellent job in the room transitions and dimensions. No wonder it’s a model in two of their communities!

In this model that is for sale, they have included the double master (one downstairs and one upstairs) which is a very nice touch!

Another home that caught my eye and is ready to move in today is the popular 1.5 story 4435-A Shaddock plan.

Very nicely done for any one looking to down-size. Very open with larger breakfast area and no dining! Two bedrooms down and one bedroom and gameroom up. Around 2,700 square feet.

Text or call Brad Holden today at (469)733-2723 with any questions regarding the Villas at Preston Hollow or Shaddock Homes in Plano.

Toll Brothers at West Park in Plano selling Phase 2!


I always have buyers ask me about Plano and my answer is always the same for new homes. Either Avignon, which is basically sold out and at a very high price point, or this jewel of a community in an incredible location! 

West Park is the first development on Haggard Farm. The Haggards have been in Plano forever and they are slowly selling their land for development like Brinkmann Ranch recently did in Frisco. 

Phase 2 at West Park consists of 61 lots with Toll Brothers having 29 and John R Landon homes having the other 32. 

Back to the location. It is literally 5 minutes from George Bush so it is ideal for anyone needing to have easy access to both the North Dallas Tollroad or US 75!

They have added a beautiful playground for the kids and have extra open space there which you never see at other playgrounds for kids. 

The Toll Brothers model home for the Villas is outstanding! Look at that WOW factor when you step into the house. Toll does a great job of showing true luxury throughout the home with their attention to every detail. See below.

Extreme Cheapskates on TLC comes to Plano, Texas


I was recently featured as the realtor on the show Extreme Cheapskates on TLC. The O’Briens live in Plano and were interested in selling their house.

20131121-215333.jpg

First off they had a fence in need of staining or more likely replacing. It was pretty bad.

20131121-215457.jpg

They used a water bottle with some holes in it for their shower head. Their living room had a bean bag, futon and some folding chairs. Carpet was really bad with stains and also needed to be stretched.

20131121-215708.jpg

Their baseboards needed a lot of cleaning and the kitchen appliances were very outdated.

20131121-215842.jpg

The O’Briens were super nice but if they try to put their home on the market in that condition, get ready for low ball offers because that is all that is going to happen!

It was a fun experience though!

Toll Brothers at West Park in Plano selling strong


20131002-092804.jpg

Plano is a special place for me. I graduated from Plano Senior High in 1997. And the Haggard Farm at Park and Custer was always a special place to Plano residents for as long as I can remember. The silver windmill, hay bales and the crazy looking lamas grazing by the road is what I remember the most about Haggard Farm.

20131002-092219.jpg

Fast forward 16 years from when I graduated and the Haggard holdout to sell has ended. In August sales for new homes started by Toll Brothers the developer of the new community called West Park.

20131002-093326.jpg

West Park by Toll Brothers is a 119 acre tract that plans to have 208 homes at buildout. The entrance will have two man made ponds with fountains off of Custer Road. Toll Brothers is also in the final decisions for what the amenity center plans to be. Below are a couple of the top runners for design of the pool and the building.

20131002-094249.jpg

But I will tell you this, West Park is the last opportunity to build a new home in Plano. And considering the incredible location with access to all 4 major highways, West Park will sell out way ahead of schedule.

For example, when Toll Brothers opened the Estate section this summer on the first weekend the salesperson took 22 deposits!

20131002-094700.jpg

Currently in Phase 1, there is a total of 75 lots. Toll Brothers has 50 and John Landon Signature Series has the other 25.

Toll Brothers has already sold 7 and has 7 more deposits in the Villas section. The standard lot size in the Villas is 55 wide by 115 deep.

20131002-095205.jpg

The Toll Brothers Villas start out with the Palladio plan at 2,000 square feet for $391,995. Toll Brothers is also offering other popular plans like the Windsor, Mondovi, Glenwyck and the Normandy. The Balmoral below is one of my favorites and starts at 3,096 square feet for $446,995.

20131002-100309.jpg

Schools for West Park are Harrington Elementary, Carpenter Middle School, Clark High School and Plano Senior High School. Harrington Elementary has a very special Chinese Emersion Program which is only 1 of 2 in the entire state.

And also there is a STEM school for grades 9-12.

The Villas by Toll Brothers plan for two models that should be completed in February 2014. HOA is $1,200 a year and tax rate is incredible at 2.19%!!!

20131002-101116.jpg

Toll Brothers is currently offering a $5,000 incentive for their grand opening

20131002-101255.jpg
