Hal Thomson Designed Home Listed and Sold by Douglas Newby
I always strive for a gracious transaction like this one between a fabulous buyer and seller who both love historic homes. The seller, a Swiss Avenue home owner for nearly 4 decades, asked me to sell her home. I was delighted and honored to represent her. Also, I was excited to offer a home for sale designed by Hal Tompson, the first prominent society architect of Dallas and his junior architect partner James Cheek who went on to design Highland Park Village and many architecturally significant homes with his architecture partner Marion Fooshee.

It is my belief the re-zoning of Old East Dallas, conducted under your direction when you were chair of the Physical Development Committee of the East Dallas Design Committee (EDDC) was one of the most significant things in the preservation of our part of town.
It is hard for me to imagine anyone but you having had the time, energy and drive that monumental effort required.
