Dennis Scifres, a partner in Poynter Scifres in Arlington, a developer of office and shopping centers, decided he wanted to get involved in the transition of his west-side neighborhood and recently completed a two-story, 4,020-square-foot Colonial at 3709 W. Fifth St. His house, built by University Homes, is listed for $595,000. He
also plans to build next door on a lot he
owns at 3706 W. Fifth St. Scifres said he
has received unsolicited offers from people who are willing to pay nearly 50 percent more than what he
paid, even though the neighborhood is still in transition.

Jim Poynter and Dennis Scifres of Poynter Scifres Cos., based in Arlington, represented the landlord, 1600 Lamar Ltd.
Consider the 1,000 acres Ryffel (pronounced REE-full) and partner Dennis Scifres bought in 1985 with $4 million borrowed from Colonial Savings.In 1990, Colonial took the property back in foreclosure. "There were times we were both out of money," says Scifres, now a partner in Poynter-Scifres, a Fort Worth real estate company.
Filing for personal bankruptcy - a not-uncommon option - was "anathema to Jim," Scifres
"It's part of what makes an entrepreneur an entrepreneur," Scifres
says."It's the ability to understand that making three double- bogies in a row doesn't mean you quit playing golf.It means you go to the driving range and get better."
The making of an entrepreneur

energy and enthusiasm and passion.That's a trademark of a successful entrepreneur.He
