If you live in Texas, you know that we have plenty of lakes across this great state.  Living near one of our beautiful lakes allows people the chance to go boating or fishing or enjoy personal water craft and many times includes camping and equestrian facilities.  Well North Texas is no exception.  In the Dallas Fort Worth area, we have several large lakes to consider - and one affordable option is to look at living in Wylie, Texas - the City Between the Lakes! In Wylie, residents enjoy reasonable home prices, great schools, great community events, and access to Lake Lavon AND Lake Ray Hubbard just minutes away. There is plenty of shopping, dining, and entertainment in town; or head out to either of the adjacent lakes for equestrian trails, boating, fishing, and other water sports.  Wit...

When tragedy affects your selling area....Wylie Texas Hailstorm 2016Wylie, Texas has been my home since 1994. That is just before a tornado hit in 1993 and the last major storm affecting our town was a hail storm in 2003. That was before my real estate days and all I remember is my daughter getting a new car ( her car was totaled due to hail) and getting a new roof. There were roofers and roofing signs everywhere. The damage  was bad but not as bad as the last 2 hail storms in Wylie, 13 years later. On March 23, 2016 a hail storm came through and damaged a large percentage of the homes and cars in Wylie, Texas. I only got hail damage on two vehicles as I had recently sold my home. The affected homeowners were calling their insurance adjustor's, receiving checks, getting new roofs and re...
