Revitalization of Munger Place and Old East Dallas
Award-Winning Realtor Douglas Newby Began His Real Estate Career in Munger Place
The year Douglas Newby graduated from SMU, he purchased a home in Munger Place and became very involved in the revitalization efforts of the neighborhood. This included writing his Master’s Thesis, Economic Incentives to Reverse Migration in an Inner City Neighborhood; serving as the Physical Development Committee/Zoning Chair of the East Dallas Community Design Committee; co-founding and serving on the executive committee of the Munger Place Revolving Fund [Historic Dallas Fund] with Virginia Talkington and Lee McAlester. As Chair of the Munger Place Revolving Fund Investment Committee, he was asked by Virginia and Lee to obtain his real estate license so he could put together and negotiate 21 purchase options for Munger Place houses that could be purchased over six months to two years. This investment structure allowed these dilapidated rent houses to be resold to homebuyers that would renovate them as single-family homes.
Douglas Newby continued to sell homes exclusively in Munger Place and Swiss Avenue for ten years in an effort to introduce homebuyers to Munger Place to revitalize the neighborhood. While Douglas Newby now sells some of the most expensive and architecturally significant homes across Highland Park and Dallas, he still resides in Munger Place and still enjoys occasionally representing special clients buy a home in the Munger Place neighborhoods of the Swiss Avenue Historic District and Munger Place Historic District.
