Agent Elly Holder of Briggs Freeman Sotheby's International Realty recently tasked me with a challenge - breathe new life into the property romance for a rare-to-market offering in the legendary 3525 Turtle Creek Dallas high-rise. The result was not only a blast for me, but ended up as a story on CandysDirt.com. Elly’s reaction? Priceless. Here is an excerpt from the voicemail she left me after first reading my copy:
“Amy, this is Elly Holder. My jaw is just on the floor, I had to immediately call you! I can't even believe this. This romance is so fabulous, you are so incredibly talented, I am going to use you every single time! I know we had a lot to work with, but you took it so many steps further. You're amazing, and I just want to say thank you! This is fabulous and you are a Rock Star. I couldn't even get finished, I kept wanting to call you. Just amazing! I so appreciate it. Have a great day, and I am looking forward to using you on the next one."
Needless to say this made my day! And I couldn’t wait to share this amazing property with you! You can read the full CandysDirt.com article here or scroll below for a closer look at the breathtaking property photos, along with the marketing copy I wrote to accompany the unbelievably chic listing.
