As the year comes to a close, more and more agents are poising themselves for the months ahead, forging new partnerships or finding brokerages that are a better fit for their personal brand. In this latest Agent Migration, we see Adam Murphy and Carrie Hill make the move to Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate, and top-performer Catherine Blevens find herself at home with Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s.
Moving brokerages is no small task, and for some, it’s strategic. For others, it’s a reaction to changing tides:
“I learned that the small boutique brokerage I’ve helped helped build from the ground up for 8 years was acquired by Century 21, and after a lot of thought, prayer and discussion with my husband, I made a tough decision to move my business to another Dallas brokerage,” said Carrie Hill in an announcement of her move to Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate to her clients. “When I was searching for a brokerage home, it was important to find a place that felt small but provided all the tools that help me help you provide the very best home buying and selling experience. I truly think Dave Perry-Miller is the best of best worlds!”
As for Catherine Blevens, her move to Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s captured more credibility for her brand.
“There is a Sotheby’s quote that really resonated with me and that is: ‘Luxury is an experience, not a price point.’ This holds very true to how I conduct business. The service I provide to my clients is what is most important to me,” Blevens said. “I strive to make it the best and most rewarding experience for everyone involved.”
It’s something she’s seen by example from Briggs Freeman agents in D-FW, too. “I have done a lot of business with Briggs agents in the past and I really enjoyed working with them and respected them as agents. I was excited to become part of the Lakewood office because I knew a few people there and felt that they were the kind of people I wanted to work with and looked up to as business persons.”
In Adam Murphy‘s case, he moved to Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate with big growth in mind.
“Dave Perry-Miller has a stellar reputation, incredible brand recognition, and is involved in the community,” Murphy said. The brokerage has a large market share and a collaborative culture, increased resources for agents, and personalized support, he noted. With four years in the industry, Murphy is looking to make waves.
“DPM has a large team and network of agents and offices provide a great platform to buy or sell a home,” Murphy said, “Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate helps clients sell their homes with increased resources, exposure, and marketing.”
