Addison Pacesetters Learn About Upcoming Community Garage Sale.

Seeing Spots in Addison? If you are seeing spots in Addison, it's intentional! Addison has rebranded it's look. Instead of the old brand (below),   the new brand has lots of different looks, all with a blue dot as the centerpiece.      The clean, sophisticated blue dot was developed over a year-long process and was selected due to it's nod to the past and forward-looking influence for the present and future.  From the Town's PR marketing of the new branding: The circle represents Addison as a small dot on the map but also as a connecting point within the Metroplex. Addison is all about "connections,” and its central location connects to the greater DFW area.The font is tall and thin and a bit squeezed to represent all the excitement in Addison, a place practically bursting with activity...

Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Addison & Weren't Afraid to Ask! Addison residents are invited to participate in the 2014 Addison Citizens Academy. This is a sort of bi-annual event and many of the past and future leaders of the Town are graduates of this program. When I participated in the program, we got to see things in Addison that many of us take for granted and/or didn't know existed. We went into the base of the original water tower, went behind the scenes and under the stage at the Watertower Theatre, got to see the inside of the jail, toured the pump station on Celestial Road, visited with the firemen at Fire Station #2, went up into the control tower at Addison Airport, and had other adventures. To quote our new City Manager, Lea Dunn: "Cities and towns have a saying:...

"Will Your Seller Accept a Contingent Offer?" Any offer is better than no offer, right? Not necessarily. A buyer's agent recently asked if my seller would consider an offer contigent on the sale of her client's current home. Before I could present the question to my seller, I had to find out some information: Is the buyer's home currently listed for sale in MLS? Is there an offer on that house? Has the option period expired? What kind of financing does the buyer of that home have? When is the house scheduled to close? I got the answers and talked to my seller. Since the house of the buyer was not yet listed (it would be on the market in 1-2 weeks), we replied that we would accept a contingent offer only after that house was under contract and out of the option period. Yes, it is a tight...

Turn! Turn! Turn! To Everything There is a Season In Addison, the leaves are turning colors and falling to earth. This autumn has been quite spectacular. The reds seem redder, the yellows more yellow, and oranges, orangier this year. I took the photo above on Beltway Drive, in front of the Hampton Inn.   These trees are on Ledgemont Lane, near the Valley of Bent Tree Condos. Both photos were taken on November 20, 2013 when the temperature was in the 60s. Now, just a few days later, the trees are not quite as leafy nor as colorful due to the cold, the wet, and the wind.
