When making moves in a real-estate market as competitive as Dallas, both the agent and the client are constantly seeking a competitive edge.
The agent wants to find, show, and sell properties that are hard to find and impossible to pass up. And while buyers often want the same, sometimes the sellers are not so black-and-white, on occasion opting for a more private experience.
You got it — this means attempting to sell a home before it officially hits the market. This daunting dilemma pops up more and more in this healthy housing market and can prove exhausting for all parties involved.

PLANO — In a rematch of a Class 6A Division II area round playoff game from last year, Rockwall again came out on top on Friday, defeating Jesuit 38-27 at Kimbrough Stadium.
It was the third consecutive season the two teams have met in the Region II second round, with the Rangers advancing in 2013 and Rockwall winning last year.
“We played our hearts out, not just tonight but all season,” said Jesuit head coach Brandon Hickman. “I know we’re out of the playoffs, but this loss does not ruin what was a great year for this football program.”
Earlier today, a threat was made on social media against Hillcrest High School. The school has requested support from Dallas ISD in their investigations.

It is not clear who is responsible for the threat, but we are hopeful they become known to be held responsible for their actions.
