Welcome to the first monthly e-edition of Spirit of Las Colinas!

The Results Are In

As you may be aware, the Association held a Special Meeting on November 2, 2015 to vote on 6 Supplementary Declaration amendments. We are pleased to announce that all 6 of the amendments passed; but very marginally. To those of you that voted, thank you!  We certainly appreciate you taking the time to vote and return your proxy. We feel it is important to point out to our Members how difficult it is to obtain enough proxies for quorum during the annual meeting time or for a special meeting; and equally as difficult to obtain the proper votes to pass amendments or even elect Board members. Please remember when we hold annual or special meetings, every vote counts whether you are a Residential member or a Commercial Member. On that note, while we have not yet set a date, our Annual Meeting will be held in March and we will again need your vote, for quorum purposes and for the re-election of Board Members.  Please watch your mail in January for the Annual Meeting notice and proxy – and remember to cast your vote!

Village View Point by Nell Anne Hunt

The residential real estate market is heating up in Las Colinas. We turned to leading agent Nell Anne Hunt for some insights! How does Las Colinas stand up against other Luxury markets across the Metroplex? Las Colinas is a great fit for a diverse range of people: families, singles, couples, athletes, CEO’s, and foreign investors. Las Colinas is one of the few Luxury Markets that appeal to everyone in the market, whether you are an empty nester looking for a single story home close to the golf course, or maybe a new family needing a spacious home with a yard. There are even condos/ Townhomes/apartments available for those looking for a reasonable commute, nearby jogging and biking places and shopping areas. Las Colinas is fortunate to be able to make all their dreams come true. What new Developments do you think will capture a lot of attention here?  The beautiful executive homes in The Bridges and Park-side are really popular. The Lakes of Las Colinas are so in demand that they have almost sold out. Three things to keep in mind when putting your luxury home up for sale?  Pristine condition, realistic pricing, and professional marketing are the perfect ingredients to net the seller’s top dollar on the sale of their home. Nell Anne Hunt is a residential real estate agent with Ebby Halliday. Please contact her 972-743-5044.

Who's Ready to Paint with a Twist?

Las Colinas, Painting with a Twist has created custom artwork for their studio including iconic images of the Las Colinas Flower Clock, Mustangs at Las Colinas and the Mandalay Canal and Clock Tower. “We are an absolutely fabulous fun night out, and we’re thrilled to be coming to Las Colinas,” said co-owner Joey Schlapkohl. “We combine having a good time with friends and painting, and at the end of the night you come home with a finished product you can be proud to say that you painted yourself!” Joey’s business partner, Jennifer Shafer, added “You can sip your favorite wine or beverage and paint a picture along with a local artist. We’ll show you step-by-step how to paint a beautiful work of art that you will take home at the end of the evening.” The mission of Painting with a Twist is to offer a great time with friends and to debunk the idea that you can’t paint once and for all. They are located at 825 W. Royal Lane # 220 (corner of Royal and MacArthur) (817) 600-8898. Get social with them on Facebook.
