Calvin's own real estate brokerage in Las Vegas, The Calvin Group, was responsible for the sell-out of Metropolis High-rise in Las Vegas. She is a Certified International Property Specialist, a highly esteemed designation of the National Association of Realtors, an invited member of Who's Who in Luxury Real Estate Worldwide and a member of the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat.

Calvin has also provided developer high-rise consulting, both domestically and abroad. A recent memorable consultation took her to Malaysia and India.

Terranova, inspired by the Italian resort of the same name, is a joint venture between Randall Davis and Hines. Offering one-, two-, and three-bedroom luxury homes in the heart of Preston Center in Dallas, Terranova was already 25 % reserved prior to the Sales Center opening in May.

Davis is currently completing construction of the 32-story Sapphire twin condominium towers on South Padre Island, which are almost completed.
