Congratulations are in order for René Barrera, the new sales manager at the Lakewood/Lake Highlands Ebby office. Not only is he an East Dallas resident himself, but he’s also a natural leader, according to Mary Frances Burleson.
“René brings extensive industry knowledge, as well as a strong desire to assist our Lakewood/Lake Highlands agents in taking their careers to the next level,” Burleson says. “A recipient of the MetroTex Association of Realtors Lois Hair Bernays Salesperson of the Year Award and Ebby Halliday’s Service to the Industry Award, René offers extensive real estate expertise and a long history of service to our industry and the East Dallas community.”
Barrera is an Aggie, too, which is what won me over, obviously! And he’s a family man, too.
“I would not be myself without mentioning my beautiful wife Julie, and two great kids Bianca and Isaac, who just started at Mata Montessori, one of the best DISD schools of choice around,” Barrera said. “We are blessed to have such great options in schools in our community.”
Barrera also runs marathons and races in triathlons, so you’ve probably passed him on the trails around White Rock Lake, but we wanted to dig a little deeper and ask him some real, hot-button questions, like what his favorite East Dallas restaurant is. You’ll be shocked by the answer!
