Sharing a passion for people, architecture, and real estate, the Crawfords are enamored with the most sought-after neighborhoods in Dallas; a quaint bungalow in Briarwood and Devonshire, an extraordinary mansion in Highland Park or University Park, a prestigious Estate in Preston Hollow, or a luxury high-rise in The Dallas Arts District. Bryan and Amanda have represented a wide range of clients from first-time home buyers to CEOs looking for their next multi-million dollar residence.
Recently we chatted with the Crawfords to get their insight into Dallas’ luxury real estate market. Read the interview below!
DM: What are a few of your current modern / contemporary listings?
Crawford: We currently have 3 upcoming live/work Penthouses on the 32nd floor available for purchase.
DM: What do you think should be the #1 consideration when searching for a modern home?
Crawford: The quality of materials used throughout the home.

DM: What is your favorite aspect of modern design?
Crawford: The way architects incorporate natural light in to their design and functionality.
DM: Who is your favorite local modern interior designer or architect?
Crawford: Clifford Hutsell. We love his Spanish style architecture. Also, Ron Womack designed a copper clad Townhome on Katy Trail with a unique basement level including wine storage. The design elements were extraordinary and took full advantage of the Katy Trail lot.
This estate at 5424 Edlen Drive is one of their many recently sold properties.
DM: What street or neighborhood do you think could be considered a modern enclave in Dallas?
Crawford: Northern Hills offers large lots. They’re very secluded yet close to Uptown, Downtown and the Park Cities. Plus the eclectic mix of homes makes the neighborhood very interesting.
DM: What are you seeing in the modern real estate market for 2013?
Crawford: We have observed a rise of interest in modern architecture lately and it can be a challenge locating the perfect match sometimes. We have worked with several Californian buyers who purchased here in Dallas lately— one went modern and the other went traditional. Local buyer interest is great right now as well, which makes Dallas a great place to sell real estate.
