Door prizes aren’t unusual at DFW shmoozapaloozas. But the $25 gas card that some homebuilders handed out last night at the Hot On Homes DFW Rocks event at the Galleria Westin Hotel seemed especially appropriate (or inappropriate). That’s because most of these builders are pouring foundations 30 to 40 miles away — and Dallasites can burn $25 just whispering “McKinney.”
Regardless, HOH co-owner Leslie Ann Crozier did her perky best to exorcise DFW real-estate downturn demons: Young Elvis (Dave Tapley, in photo) thrust his hips at unsuspecting Realtors; Ozzie Osborne (another lookalike) wandered aimlessly; Ebby Halliday (not her impersonator) played a ukulele and sang.
The press release said about 700 Realtors would be there — I counted about 400, tops.
Anyway, another such event is slated for this fall. I’m hoping Crozier goes for Burl Ives and the homebuilders move the decimal point further to the right on those gas cards.
