University Park is the home of Southern Methodist University which includes on its campus the renowned Meadows Museum of Art and George W. Bush Presidential Center. It has long been a home community to upscale residents, the first of whom settled here to support the university. It became its own city in 1924 and later came to be associated with the Park Cities which refers to the area encompassing the town of Highland Park and the city of University Park. These independent cities are surrounded by the City of Dallas, and often are first in mind when people think of Dallas’ affluent lifestyle.
Resident families enjoy the benefit of the Exemplary Highland Park ISD; its well-known high school (actually located within University Park’s boundaries) is a public four-year college preparatory school recognized by the U.S. Department of Education as a School of Excellence and winner of blue ribbon designation. The HP Highlanders have a long tradition of both academic and athletic accomplishment.
Residents find life within University Park to be like living in a small village with close connections to neighbors and quiet residential streets, and yet literally everything is right around the corner. Shopping and restaurants in Dallas are world class. Love Field Airport is just a few miles away, and DFW International Airport is approximately 30 minutes away.
I'm Von Gipson, (Residential MatchMaker). I pair people with the perfect home "Right Size" their life. As a 10 year experienced Licensed Texas Realtor and Naval Veteran I serve families of Collin County in North Texas. I will locate, negotiate, and navigate the Process and Pitfalls of Buying and Selling a home. My decade of unique connections, business savvy and high tech tools put my clients in a position of power whether Buying or Selling.
Prior to becoming a Realtor, I had a very successful career in the Healthcare Industry as a Physician Recruiter. Tasked with locating the best Surgeons across the country, partnering with Hospitals and Operating Centers across the country gave me the opportunity to understand the factors that are apart of making Life Changing decisions and finding the appropriate solutions for all parties. I've negotiated salaries, home purchases, partner packages, and coordinated relocation for my clients. Throughout my time as a Physician Recruiter the "One Thing" I took away is people are fundamentally the same, we are all trying to either Avoid a Loss or Create a Gain and finding the Harmony between the two is where success lies. Your next Home Buying or Selling experience deserves to be Smooth as Silk. Trust Von, I'm smooth as silk.
