Well, it’s going to be an interesting evening at MetroTex Association of Realtor’s Awards and Installation bash Wednesday night. For maybe the first time ever, two brokers from the same firm are vying for Metrotex Broker of the Year…
That would be Russell Berry and Kevin Caskey, two of three finalists, and both with Nathan Grace.
That’s right, Nathan Grace. On Monday, Kevin left Dallas City Center Realtors, where he had worked for 15 years, running the place for seven, longer than any other manager.
He has moved over to Nathan Grace as the firm’s Area Director. Kevin will manage Park Cities, Lake Highlands and Richardson, basically everything Dallas County. His business partner, Bill Clarkson moved with him.
“Nathan Grace has grown so fast in this market,” says Kevin,”already six offices plus corporate, that kind of growth is pretty impressive.”
While he loved City Center, Kevin says he sees so much more opportunity for growth with Nathan Grace.
“It was time to see what is out there,” says Kevin. “because the business is changing so quickly. We were very busy, but not really growing. Nathan Grace is also very technology forward, which is going to be an even bigger component of our business going forward. The changes are coming, and we need to be prepared.”
Brokers are always reaching out to top agents, says Kevin, and he has been getting offers to move for year, but never considered a one until now.
“Every week, Nathan Grace has a “Live from Sherry Lane” Facebook feed show for all the agents, it’s a fun, upbeat atmosphere, welcoming and comfortable, not stuffy.”
Aside from Bill, Kevin comes to NG alone as he has a non-compete with Dallas City Center.
But that, he says, is not keeping his phone very silent.
