     History of Forest Creek Estates, Lucas, TX

                And Jeanie Elliott REALTORS

                "The Past is An Anchor for The Future"



      * FACT:  Jeanie Elliott of Jeanie Elliott REALTORS was the driving force behind

         the development of Forest Creek Estates in Lucas, working in connection with

         United Standard Realty from start to finish.  Ms. Elliott was responsible for locating,

         researching, recommending, and negotiating the entire 151+ acres; and involved in

         every phase including feasibility, layout of lots, planning and design, environmental

         control, naming of streets and subdivision, planning of marketing programs, pricing,

         developing the deed restrictions, visionary for the first park in Lucas,  Forest Creek

         Park as well as a Broker/Partner participant in every lot, approval of lot take-downs,

         and closing of every estate lot as well as the managing and complexities of residential

         subdivision design, marketing, consulting, and sales from beginning to end.  The entire

         subdivision of 60+ residential, ranch estate lots SOLD OUT in just over 18 months.


          City of Lucas & Forest Creek Park Info 


     * FACT:  Jeanie Elliott has closed over 200+ sold property transactions in the

        Forest Creek Estates and surrounding areas, since 1996, including the areas of

        Whiterock Creek Estates, Country Club Road/FM 1378, Blondy Jhune Road,

        Forest Grove Road, Kingswood, Northfork, Rock Ridge Road, Orr Road, 

        Stonegate Estates, Tokalaun to name a few, which are basically bordering 

        the subdivision, nearby or just  across it from a major road; in addition to

        organizing, negotiating and selling the actual parcel of 151+ acres for the

        development, working exclusively with all the family member of the sellers

        and the principals of the buyers development firm, and their attorneys, to

        a successful closing of the large, 151+ acres, farm and ranch.  These sales

       also include  more recently some of Lucas Texas' Finest, Custom Homes

       like the one featured here on Mary Lee Lane in Forest Creek Estates as

       well as other  valued in the $400,000 to $1,000,000 prince range on Mary

       Lee Lane, Crestland Drive, Sawmill Drive, Oak Brook Drive and Pecan

       Grove Circle, that were specifically designed and built on these spacious,

       2 to 3+ acre heavily, wooded ESTATE LOTS and TREED, CREEK LOTS

       for which Forest Creek Estates and other subdivisions like Huntwick and

       Creekwood Estates that Ms. Elliott marketed and sold  are well known and

        highly sought after.  Many of these estate lots, Ms. Elliott sold twice and

       some even 3 or 4 times over the course of just a few months or within a 1

        to 2 year period. 


        The largest majority of these properties were both listed and sold by Jeanie

        Elliott exclusively, and Forest Creek Estates had 60+ estate and creek lots

        alone. Many sales were never in MLS because Ms. Elliott has, over the years,

        had that uncanny ability to just "match" the seller's property to buyers she

        already knows or comes in contact through her referral base of past clients

        and connections from her 27+ years of experiences.  In those sales, she was

        able to just organize the sale through her own resources and abilities and

        did not have to use the normal benefits of MLS to procure a buyer. This is

        what she refers to as "intuition" or  just having that "hunch" that a property

        is going to be the right one for a particular buyer.  It is that one, extra

        ability that just sets apart the average broker from the extraordinary broker

        and one important difference in employing a broker like Jeanie Elliott, with

        a wealth of years of experience to be the broker of choice for you.  With

        almost 30 years total sales and marketing  experience in the Lucas, Texas

        and surrounding areas, Jeanie Elliott has more experience in  the real estate

        business of Lucas, Texas than any other broker/agent  that is active at this

        time and she knows how to get properties sold in difficult markets,

        buyer's markets and seller's markets, as her 30 years of experience has

        been an unbroken length of time and full commitment to the industry

        without leaving during the down markets like the late 80's and early

        90's when many brokers left and returned when the market was up and

        properties were much easier to sell, therefore requiring less acquired

        skills, and determination.


         *FACT:  As a new broker associate and Top Rookie Salesperson of the Year for

        the entire Dallas/Ft. Worth Metroplex, for Merrill Lynch REALTORS in 1980,

        many of Ms. Elliott's first listings and sales were in the early subdivisions of

        Lucas, Fairview, and Parker Texas including Lemontree Estates, Hidden

        Meadows, Graham Lane, Green Meadows Estates, Lucas Country Estates,

        Rock Ridge Road, Woodmoor, Brookhaven Ranch Estates, Choice Acres,

        Highview Estates, and Cook Country Estates in Lucas; and Blue Grass Farms,

        Ranger Estates, Old Stacy Road, Country Club Road, Collinswood Acres,

        Foxglen, Montecito and  Fairview Farms in Fairview; and Sycamore Estates,

        Lewis Lane,  Poco Estados, Cottonwood Acres, FM 2514/Parker Road,

        Dublin Road,  McCreary Road, and Moss Creek Estates in Parker, Texas.

        At that time undeveloped land was amazingly available for $1,000 an acre, and

        a 1 to 3 acre residential developed, acreage lot could be purchased for $7,000

        per lot or less in Lucas which had almost zero appreciation for many years.

        At that time, very few people had heard of Lucas, Texas, and the people that

         lived there liked it that way, so for many years there was also zero growth.


       Since then, Jeanie Elliott has successfully closed well in excess of 1,300

       estate lots and residential home site transactions, as well as approximately

       1,500 sold transactions of fine home resales, custom homes, build-to-suit

       homes, new homes,  farms and ranch estates, large luxury homes, and

       other commercial or residential land tract transactions in the cities of 

       Lucas, Fairview, Allen, Celina, Melissa, Murphy, Lovejoy ISD, Parker,

       Prosper, Wylie, and surrounding cities in Collin County, Texas including

      Plano, McKinney, Frisco, Richardson, North Dallas and Garland. In addition,

      some sales have occurred in neighboring areas of Dallas and Denton Counties,

      and recently even in Grayson County.  Also some sales were as far south

      as Preston Hollow and Glen Lakes In North Dallas for luxury homes, and

      some sales as far north as Sherman/Denison for land transactions; but

      the largest majority of the property sales have represented a "niche" or

      specialization in:  1.) country estate properties on acreage lots and land: 

       2.) residential estate lots, acreage lots, and residential  home sites for

       custom homes and custom build and:  3.) new custom homes, fine custom

        home resales and custom build homes...and the largest majority have

        been in Lovjoy ISD or Plano ISD.   As far as the number of acres of

        land that Ms. Elliott has sold, she says "I could not even begin to add up the

        amount of acreage, but could safely say there have been 1.000's of acres of

        land represented in my real estate transactions, as land has always been my

        "first love."


        *FACT:  Jeanie Elliott was also the initiator and driving force for other land

         developments in Lucas, Texas as well,  including the first project she envisioned, 

         completed and sold in connection with United Standard Realty in 1996, known 

         as the original "Huntwick" subdivision of Lucas, Texas.  According to the City

         of Lucas, United Standard Realty in 1996, and also documented by the North

         Texas Multiple Listing Service at that time, the "Huntwick" subdivision, which

         was in excess of 130+ acres was the first residential subdivision and first large land

         tract of that size to be sold and developed in Lucas Texas in almost 10 years, of

         which Ms. Elliott was an integral part; a visionary from the beginning to

         the end.  By far, the largest majority of these estates lots in "Huntwick" were

         both listed and sold by Jeanie Elliott exclusively, as well as Ms. Elliott initiated,

         negotiated, and closed the sale of the 130+ acres for the development in 1995,

         working closely with & representing the buyers to a successful close Prior to

         these larger 130 to 150+ acre land sales for Huntwick and Forest Creek,

         Ms. Elliott also had also been succesful selling land for residential developers

         in Plano ISD as early as 1985 when she sold an entire development of

         50+ developed lots in West Plano in a large, bulk sale transaction.  She has

          learned from and worked with both local and international developers on

          residential, custom home site projects including "The Estates of Oakwood

          Glen"  and Creekside Estates in Plano, Texas, representing international

          developer and real estate investment company, Forester-Kurts of Australia,

          from 1992 to 1997, and exclusively marketing projects totaling over 250+

         oversized estate lots and creek lot transactions, ranging in size up to one-acre.

         All of  these real estate experiences laid the groundwork for Ms. Elliott to

         be able to go out to the Lucas, Texas area, and envision, organize, market,

         and sell out the original "Huntwick" and its successor, Forest Creek Estates

         as well as other developments of significance including Creekwood Estates

         and Seis Lagos II which consisted of approximately 80 lots combined.


       In addition, Ms. Elliott had at least 400 sold property transactions in the

       original "Huntwick," area and other surrounding Lucas, Texas areas including 

       Estelle Lane, Estates of Huntwick, Creekwood Estates, Brockdale Park, Choice

       Acres, McCollum Estates, Winningkoff Road, Rollingwood, Brookhaven Ranch

       Estates, Woodmoor, Hillcrest Estates, and Lakeview Estates to name some of

       them, as well as Glenbrook Estates, which was the model that the "Huntwick"

       subdivision was envisioned from and fashioned after.


        Just prior to the "Huntwick Subdivision Project,"  Jeanie Elliott had also sold

        exclusively the Glenbrook Estates subdivision for Brovont Development.  At that

        time, Glenbrook Estates was the  largest, residential, acreage lot subdivision in Lucas,

        and was completely sold out and almost completely built out by 1995  for the most

        part.  Thus, the "idea" for the the original "Huntwick," and the Forest Creek

       Estates subdivisions which followed in its footsteps, was born, and the best model in

       Lucas of what prospective home buyers were wanting was the Glenbrook Estates

       concept with the large 2+ acre lots, and the less restrictions then what owners had

       in the towns like Allen, Plano, McKinney, Frisco, and Richardson where they lived.

        This combined with a focus to make each subdivision more upscale than the last,

        were factors taken in creating the subdivisions as well as a priority was placed

        on privacy from traffic, trees, creeks, parks, and other natural settings, which made

        these subdivisions highly desirable and excellent investments.  Of course the

        school district for these areas, which was at the time serviced by both Lovejoy ISD

         for the elementary schools and Allen ISD for middle and high schools, was also

        a significant reason why the buyers were driving the market for the growth of the

        area.  But, according to Ms. Elliott, the primary reason was simply, "the land."

        American home owners and home buyers just love the land, and love to

        call that spacious one to three-acre parcel "home." 


        There were 63 lots in Glenbrook Estates; and the largest majority were

        both listed and sold by Jeanie Elliott exclusively; and many of them sold several

        times; as well as many resale homes and build-to-suits homes were listed and

        sold by Ms. Elliott in the Glenbrook Estates and surrounding areas of Lucas over

        the years; again, some never getting into MLS before selling.


         The original "Huntwick" subdivision was truly a phenomenon!   The entire

         subdivision was SOLD Out by Jeanie Elliott in less than one year, with the

         majority of the estate lots under contract in the first 6 monthsThe "Huntwick"

         subdivision project, consisting of 51, 2 to 3+ acre residential ranch estate lots,

         was so successful, that Ms. Elliott in connection with United Standard Realty

         went on to do their second and final project together in the Lucas area, the

         more upscale project of the two, Forest Creek Estates  which featured the

         unique, heavily wooded and beautiful  white rock, creek lots and eventually

        some of Lucas's most beautiful and unique custom homes on acreage lots like

        the one on Mary Lee Lane in Lucas, Texas, featured above.


         Both projects, the original "Huntwick" and Forest Creek Estates, which

        are located in Lucas, Texas,  made history as the QUICKEST SELL-OUT 

        of any subdivisions of their size and type for residential, acreage, estate lots in

         Lucas, Texas, and that record has never been surpassed to date in a custom

         community of its type in that area or anywhere nearby.


        By that time Lucas Texas was finally on the map. Developers were coming

        to the area from all over; new developments springing up...change had finally

        come, progress was on the way, and the area would never be the same. Now,

        it seemed that everyone was "in love" with Lucas, Texas, and the Lovejoy

        Independent School District was on its way to planning its separation from

        the Allen Independent School District, which was decided by the voters in 2003,

        and eventually became a reality with the opening of the Lovejoy Middle School

        and Lovejoy High School in 2006.
