Winkler Teams-Up With Standard
Summer Winkler joined the Standard Real Estate after seven years with Keller Williams. The move reunites her with Standard partner Joshua Vernon, with whom she previously worked.
“I’m so excited about the collaboration of people that are at the Standard,” she said. “I’ve had the opportunity to watch them grow and I think they are going to have a big part of this market.”
Founded by Zach De Bernardi last October, The Standard now boasts 21 agents, as well as a second office in Tyler. Winkler, who also previously worked for Clay Stapp + Co. said the opportunity to return to a boutique-type setting really appealed to her because it will allow her to provide better customer service for her clients.
“The big business concept is not attractive to me anymore. To me they have really lost sight of what it’s all about,” she said.
Winker has spent the bulk of her 18-year career focusing on new residential construction. Over the past her years, she has narrowed her focus to condos, townhomes and single family homes in downtown, East Dallas and North Dallas.
“I have a true passion for real estate,” Winkler said. “I’ve just been waiting for this opportunity. These guys are great- there’s a lot of brain power and talent behind it.”
Caskey Joins Century 21 Judge Fite
Long-time agent Adam Caskey recently joined Century 21 Judge Fite. He will be based out of the Colleyville office.
Caskey has been in real estate for 17 years, beginning with a stint at Keller Williams. More recently, Caskey has worked as an independent agent. After several years of doing that, he felt it was time to once again join forces with a major broker.
“It just felt like the right move and the right time,” he said. “I feel very confident that going in with Century 21 will help my viability.”
Caskey sees plenty of opportunities in Colleyville, as well as nearby Keller, Southlake, Grapevine, and the Hurst-Euless-Bedford areas.
“I’m hoping to attract people family with the Century 21 brand looking for their local guy.”
