   Note:  A lot of people are asking me about the Wylie ISD schools because all of phase IV

    is in the Wylie Independent School District, and phase IV is attracting a lot of new home

   buyers to the area with the lots available for custom build-to-suit.  I have a lot of clients that   

   love the Wylie ISD school district and actually request it as their #1 choice.  My suggestion

   is do your own independent research and decide where you believe your own children would 

   be happier and receive the most support...don't just take another person's  opinion.  Do your

   own research and visit the schools if you can.  I have a Master's Degree in Business with

    a double major in Education from Texas A. & M. Univerisity-Commerce, and have taught

    school there as well as later at the high school level at two cities in the Metroplex, and

    have been even invited back in recent years to teach for Texas A. & M. as both an

    educator and consultant of the real estate industry because of my almost 30 years of

    experience in the industry and my reputation with the Texas A. & M. faculty from my

    early years prior to beginning my real estate career.

 

   As a trained educator, I know that not every school or any one district is best for

   every child.  Some districts are best suited for the high academic students; and some have

   excellent programs for those with learning disabilities as well as physical handicapped

   disabilities; but often some districts that are inspiring for the high achiever are not always

   the best for every student that may be more in the middle; your above average learner 

   or even more in the largest group which is classified as the average learner on the bell

   curve or "learning curve" used by educators to group children by learning abilities

    from educational test scores.  It is well-documented by educational studies that some

   of those children classified "above average and even more so for the average group"

    frequently become challenged and discouraged when placed in districts or public

   school environments where there is too much emphasis and attention on the high

   achievers or those children classified as "gifted and talented" by academic testing

   standards,  and those students may not learn to their full potential or adapt as

   well because they get somewhat overlooked or lost in the high academic school

    environment which tends to be more competitive especially in the higher grades.

 

    I used to teach in the Plano Independent School District in the late 70's and

    have good experience in public school education and this situation.  Plano ISD 

    was always a great district for the "gifted and talented," and had one of the best

    educational systems in the United States for those with learning disabilities

    and physically handicapped disabilities.   Many of my close friends over the

    years have been and still are educators and administrators, and they still tell

    me it has not really changed that much, and that it is not uncommon for some

    of the average students in the middle group, with basically, average learning

    ability to have difficulty adjusting well in districts that have a higher percentage

    of high achievers and this will normally start to show up even more in the

    higher grades as behavior problems.

 

    There is no denying that some districts like the Lovejoy ISD that are 

    "Exemplary" as was recented reported by the Texas Education Agency

    again in 2007, are indeed excellent school districts offering good advantages

     for many children, and most of my past clients that live in the Lovejoy District 

    tell me they are pleased with the Lovejoy Schools and they are very committed

    to wanting Lovejoy ISD for their children.   It has been my experience that the

    Lovejoy ISD system does offer many excellent opportunities for their students,

    especially in the elementary school grade levels, which was what they had always

    been until 2006.    Prior to the new Lovejoy Middle School and Lovejoy High

    School opening in 2006; Lovejoy ISD was a district of only elementary school(s)

     for many years with all the other grades going into Allen ISD which was also

    rated as an "Exemplary District" for most of that time,  In addition, prior to

    the last 10 years with the development expansion beginning with the first new,

    large residential development in Lucas in 10 years, the original "Huntwick"

    subdivision in 1996 and followed by Forest Creek Estates and others in 1997, 

    both listed and sold exclusivley by Jeanie Elliott REALTORS at those times,

    the Lovejoy ISD had always been only one elementary school.  Thus, there was

    only one elementary to evaluate or test by the TEA standards  for many years,

    and even today the districts performance is still in the early stages of their

    growth and transition cycle while they are making the change over to have

    all their own schools and be fully separated from Allen, Texas, and Allen ISD

    as some students are still attending the Allen High School.

    My congratulations to Lovejoy ISD this year for making the "Exemplary"

    rating by TEA for all their schools and wishes for continued success as the

    transistion and growth continues while growing the district with more schools

    in the future.

 

   However, the TEA ratings are not the only factor to consider, and a good

   number of my other past and present clients tell me they have moved their

   children from schools in the Lovejoy ISD, Plano ISD, McKinney ISD,

   Allen ISD, and other districts, for various reasons to other schools including

   those in the Wylie District and their children are happy and actually doing

   better in their particular Wylie School now than before.   So, all I am saying

   is that it is an individual decision and there are cases in favor of both districts

   that serve the Seis Lagos Community as being both excellent school districts

   and choices depending on each family, their children and their specific goals

   or what is most important to them.  The Wylie School District also has many

   children with high academic abilities, and they also have more schools overall 

   to prepare and evaluate with 15 schools and more opening soon.  I am told by

   educators that it is more difficult for a large district  with many schools to

   receive a "recognized" or  "exemplary" rating than it is for a smaller district

   similiar to Lovejoy ISD which has  fewer schools and students to prepare and 

   evaluate.  So, although the Wylie School District is still not large by any means

    when compared to a district like Plano, Frisco, Allen, and Mckinney, it is

    indeed much larger than Lovejoy ISD at this time and more difficult to

    compare the two districts based on test scores alone.

 

    For 2007, the Wylie ISD rated overall equal to and as high as Allen, Frisco,

    Plano, and McKinney schools , and these districts are all excellent school

    systems even though they all were also rated as "acceptable" by the TEA

    for 2007, the same rating as the Wylie ISD, and have been known as

    award-winnning schools and districts for many years.

    So as far as the Seis Lagos area, do yourself a favor before eliminating a great

   house at an excellent value because someone tells you one school district is the

   best or the "The Right Choice"  for your children over another; and do the

   research and visit the schools where your children would go before deciding.

  History of Seis Lagos communities & Jeanie Elliott REALTORS

 

      Until now, I just had not taken the time to do the research,  but was confident the total

      sales for my firm in Seis Lagos was well over 100+ because I listed and sold all the

      estate lots in Seis Lagos, phase II, which was 57 properties as well as the last 5 lots

      in phase I, which I SOLD twice and some three times,  bringing the custom home

      site sales total to at least 70+ and  most of those I sold from 1996 to 2002 were SOLD

      exclusively where I procured the buyer for my own listings.   Adding that to the many

      homes I have SOLD in phases 1, 2, and 3  since 1996, which includes most recently

      23 home sale transactions in phase III and some in phase I,  from the beginning

      of 2004 through 2007, and some of those again I both listed and sold.

 

     The purpose of which should support the fact that I have an established, tract record

      in the Seis Lagos Community, and truly believe it is a great place to live or would

      not be able to recommend, show, and sell it to my clients or even want to.

 

      Also, some people have asked why I don't live in Seis Lagos since I sell there.

     I have owned property there before, but have personal, family reasons why I

     basically can't at this time in my life.   Although, I do like the community very

     much it has been my experience that it is the type of community that is best for

     families with children at home as it is serviced by excellent schools; retirees that

     stay home much of the time and enjoy being away from the busy city lifestyle,

     and empty-nesters or self-employed small businesses that work from home and

     that don't really have the type of schedule or employment responsibilities that

     require them to commute several times a day or week, the way I normally have

     to for my work. 

     Because of  my irregular and long hours, I find myself running errands and 

     doing shopping, etc. late at night, and there is still very limited shopping near

     the country communities in these smaller rural communities like Seis Lagos.

     I have often said, when there is a four-lane, direct route to Seis Lagos from

     Plano, with some late night, stop-overs for emergencies, etc., I would love to

     move there some day.  But for now, I generally can't go home at a specific

     time every day and stay home which is more typical of the country lifestyle.

     It is just does not work well for a busy realtor's unpredictable lifestyle, where 

     I am frequently on the road taking care of business in the late hours and

     needing to meet deadlines.  However, I do have a long tract record in Seis

     Lagos, and understand the area better than most newcomers or next-door

     neighbors that might live there, but lack the experience and skills of the real

     estate business, and learning the business at their neighbors expense.  And

     although it is possible to get a "fast start" in this business when the ecomony

     is expanding and some new agents that are determined to learn it well and

     willing to work hard do succeed in the fast moving type of markets like those

     we have experiened in past years even as recently as 2005, when everything

     was selling relatively quickly; it is just not  the best reason for agent selection

      and especially not for the type of market we have today. 

 

     Today's market is totally different for those we had just a couple years back,

     but not one that is not similiar to several others in the past that I have already

     worked in and experienced.  In the past 27+ years, I have sold real estate in

     both sellers and buyers markets, both fast-moving and slow; and began my

     real estate career in an economic downturn as well as my own business in

     one of the worst real estate markets in U.S. history.  All of my experience has

     been in the Collin County and surrounding areas with heavy emphasis on

     Lovejoy ISD, Allen, Plano, Lucas, Fairview, Wylie, and the Seis Lagos

     community which is like a small town in its own way.  I did not transfer

     in from another part of the courtry where I got most of my experience,

     nor did I start out in the commercial real estate business, and switch to

     residential later on.  All of my experience has been in these area and in

     the residential real estate business, full-time, without gaps to do something

     else because times were tough or sales were more difficult to make.

     

     For today's market you need an agent with a lot of real estate experience, not

     in just in the number of years but also in number of transactions, as well as

     one that knows the areas where you are buying or selling and has a proven

     tract record in those areas.

 

      As far as being a Top Agent in the area recently, for both 2006 & 2007...

      look at these facts:

 

  •  Jeanie Elliott sold the top 2 highest sales per square foot in 2007 & 2006 in Seis Lagos, and the most recent
  •  sale in phase III that is not a "foreclosur" home which basically will sell themselves even with the most
  •  passive and inexperienced agents sign in the yard.  (This is a fact, foreclosurs are "easy to sell." and take little or almost
  •  no skills or experience as most sales are "buyer beware" and only offered and sold in "as is" condition.)  Bascially, the buyer
  •  takes ALL the risk and only gets a "special warranty deed" from the lender not a "general warranty deed which is the
  •  only way to LIMIT YOUR RISK for future problems is to buy and demand you get a "general warranty deed" or you are
  •  getting real estate that can later have problems with liens on the title and you have no guarantee to cover the losses; meaning
  •  you most likely will have to pay an attorney the going rate of $250 to $350+ an hour to get you out of a mess when you resale
  •  which can result in lots of delays and extra costs, because there is just no way of knowing how long it is going to take to
  •  solve title problems and issues that generally you don't know about until later on when your property goes into title again.
  •  Most of the time you will not be aware of this until you get ready to resale and close, and they call you to let you know there are
  •   situations or unresolved issues left over that you were not aware of when you closed on the property originally.
  •   I have seen in many times, especially when the owners did no work through a knowledgable and experienced broker
  •   to represent them when they originally purchased the property.  One of the "red flags" is that you must use a specific
  •   escrow agent that the lender has "connections" through.  So, if you are determined you want a "REO" or foreclosure,
  •   just be prepared that you need a nice "nest egg" put back for unexpected things that are bound to happen.
  •  Jeanie Elliott had 8 home property transactions according to the North Texas Multiple
  •  Listing Service (NTREIS) in Seis Lagos in 2007 & 2006 with an average sales price
  •  of at least $500,000 for the 2 years combined.
  •  Two of the homes, Jeanie Elliott was able to sell her own listings and work with both the buyers and sellers to successful closings.   
  •  Two of the homes in 2007, went under contract in approximately 60 days from from the time they went into MLS until
  •  they went into title to for closing.                                                                                                                                               

  

   * Please call Jeanie Elliott to discuss the benefits and disadvantages of working with an 

     agent that is able to sell their own listings if you are in the market to buy or sell

     in Seis Lagos or other areas, and not already in an exclusive relationship with another

     broker or agency.  Some brokers may tell you the disadvantages, without explaining

      the benefits.  I know this to be a fact because I have read it on their website(s).

      There are different  types of real estate services and some, may or may not be right

       for everyone; but you owe it to yourself to hear the facts from someone knowledgable

       enough to explain it to you that has a long-term tract record; not a newcomer or

       someone that has only been out of real estate school a short time, or even in the

       business for a few years, with limited sales and experience to relate and

       thoroughly understand the differences themselves.  I am amazed at how my

       people go into the business, get licensed, maybe sell their own house or even

       a couple of properties, and all of a sudden they think they are an "expert." 

      Don't be so naive, the business is a lot more complex than that, and it has a

      very high dropout rate to show for it, per the National Association of

      REALTORS, "over half the newly licensed agents leave the industry within

      their first two years."  Just think about it...how many people do you know

      or have met that "used" to be in the real estate business. 

 

      With almost 28 continuous years experience in the real estate business, if you are

      in the market to sell or buy in Seis Lagos, or any ot the other areas where I 

      have specialized and actively work, give me to call before you decide on your

      choice of brokers/agents and hear what the options are by an experienced broker,

      not a newcomer or part-timer to the industry that is learning the business at your

      expense!  If you are considering listing with a neighbor or because they live

      closeby then you owe it to yourself to get  the facts from a broker/agent with a

      long-term record of closed sales in your area which will save you much time

      and money in today's market conditions.
