Jersey Girl LOVES Jersey Boys! - 07/24/08 08:38 PM
Last night, the Addison Pacesetters attended the opening performance of the musical Jersey Boys at The Musical Hall at Fair Park in Dallas. Eighteen of us boarded a privately chartered bus at the Addison Athletic Club and headed off to the restaurant in the Music Hall for a sumptuous meal followed by the fantastic performance. The musical follows the life and times of Frankie Valli and his musical career. If you're in the Dallas/Fort Worth area and have not seen this play, by all means - GO! You won't regret it. This Passaic, New Jersey native loved every minute of it. (6 comments)

Lease/Purchase: " A Stupid Idea" - 07/14/08 09:38 PM
Brian Watts, attorney at Hexter Fair Title Company, spoke to the agents in the Dallas North office of Keller Williams this morning. His topic was Lease/Purchase, Leases and Negotiating Contract Extensions. According to Brian, lease purchase is "a stupid idea" and recommended that we steer our buyers and sellers away from this. Brian outlined the 3 methods of lease/purchase: contract for deed - the buyer takes possession and makes payments to the seller and when the final payment is made, the buyer gets the deed. It's kind of like seller financing, but without the approval of the seller's lender (because the seller's (7 comments)

Al-Amir Comes to Addison - 07/13/08 08:01 PM
There's a new restaurant on Restaurant Row (better known as Belt Line Road) in Addison, TX. Al-Amir, a Lebanese restaurant and club opened at 3885 Belt Line Road a couple months ago. The original Al-Amir at 7402 Greenville Avenue in Dallas is still open. Out of the blue, I got a call from Sandy Moses, the marketing director for the new Addison location. She called to thank me for information she found useful that I had posted to Active Rain and to Localism about Addison's top companies, and she invited me and a friend to come by for the lunch buffet.

Ah, Addison! Not a city, but a "town." The Town of Addison. The best place to live and work in North Texas. There's something to be said about a place that doesn't take itself too seriously. Note the exclamation point in the town's name. Here you'll find the ruminations, rants and raves of one of the town's realtors and residents.
