From time to time, the publishers of Building Savvy partner with their extensive network of contacts to build Idea Homes, showcasing the latest in products and services. Steve and Beverly Smirnis are pleased to announce the ground-breaking of their newest project in the popular Midway Hollow neighborhood in Dallas and the team carefully selected to design and build it.
George Davis & Associates has four decades of extensive homebuilding experience and has received numerous distinctions from the real estate community as one of Dallas’ premier homebuilders. George became a Life Director for Dallas Home Builders Association in 2012.
With his years of experience, much that has taken place in the adjacent Preston Hollow neighborhood, George brings keen insight in building homes that withstand the test of time, and he is ahead of the curve in predicting market changes and buyer preferences, the Smirnis team notes.
George recalls first taking a look at Midway Hollow some 15 years ago and thinking it was only a matter of time before all the activity it is experiencing today was bound to happen. “In Preston Hollow 25 years ago, lots were $300K and now they are $1M. It is a natural progression for new home activity to now move just west of it to Midway Hollow and I’m very excited about this opportunity to be part of the Building Savvy project there now, and to be part of the redevelopment of this great neighborhood,” George said.
Steve Smirnis adds, “We are honored that George will take the lead on this project and that our son Nick can work alongside the best of the best on this project as George’s assistant. Nick brings to the table his keen eye for detail and specific insight about what buyers in his 30ish age range need and want. Not all possess George’s willingness to listen, learn and adapt which is balanced by his firm stance against anything that stands to compromise quality or long-term value.”

“With so many people from California moving to Texas, having Pamela available to work in Dallas is a plus,” said Beverly Smirnis. “Through the process of reporting for our ongoing case study from start to finish, I anticipate there will be much for our audience to glean from Pamela’s unique understanding and experience working with home buyers from outside of our local area.”
