Large family room with a cozy wood burning fireplace for those chilly nights. Relax on your private covered patio after a hard day at work. Nice shaded backyard with plenty of room to play. The windows are updated and the HVAC is roughly five years old. Newish hot water heater. This home has a lot of natural light. Close to schools, shopping. Great home in a great area!
February saw big changes for the O’Reilly Home Team.
We moved over to Keller Williams D-FW Preferred in the Coppell office. After 16 years with REMAX it was time for a change. I loved my time at REMAX, and I have vast respect for Mark Wolfe—the owner and Broker of the franchise and the agents there—, but it was time.
It was time to stretch, time to get out of my comfort zone, time to grow.
I’ve always known that Keller Williams is a leader in our industry for training. This is attractive for new agents because they can quickly get up to speed on basics, have vast support, and get selling quickly. I get to assist with this training and support, and this work interests me!
Throughout my 16 years with REMAX, I worked hard to keep in the know around this ever-changing world of real estate. And I owe that to all of you. Moving to KW will expose me to more training (some that I’ll be teaching) and help me stay on top of my game.
I love what I do. I love working with you, your friends and your family to navigate through the ever-changing world of real estate. I will continue to be your guide!
And I’ll also be helping the real estate agents in the KW office stay legal and ethical, teaching some classes and continuing to learn and grow.

In our October newsletter (we send them quarterly now, sign up here) we published a recipe that hearkens to our El Paso family traditions!
Our Area is Moving, even within the Pandemic.
"Home sales in North Texas exploded in July, rising 25% from a year ago to the largest ever single-month sales total. It was the second month in a row that area home purchases bounced back from the declines in April and May at the start of the COVID-19 panemic. July’s sales spike follows a 16% annual increase in June."
Even amongst job losses and stress in the pandemic, the low mortgage rates are keeping home movement active, it seems.
July was expected to be fine, but the HUGE GAME was beyond expectations. Buyers and Sellers that were delayed from the spring selling season may be deciding to get more and more active right now.
"The continued jump in office prices is caused by an increasing shortage of houses on the market. North Texas median home prices were up 9% - the largest such annual increase in more than a year. Only about 16,000 single-family homes were listed with real estate agents in the more than two dozen North Texas counties included in the July data – 40% less than a year earlier. There is less than a 2-month supply of homes on the market. The drop in home listings has caused bidding wars for houses and a sever shortage of properties under $300,000."

The Texas A & M Real Estate Center does great research work on numbers in our state. And our state real estate numbers are usually a reflection of what's "norm" for our D-FW area. When there's a difference there, we can spot it and point out the ways we are unique from Houston, El Paso, Austin markets. So reach out with questions. Here's how this latest insight begins, and it's healthy numbers even in all our downturn times, really.
