Mother/daughter duo Arlene Balady and Michele Balady Beach have joined the Dave Perry-Miller Park Cities office. They had previously worked under the Keller Williams umbrella.
“I think we just both felt that the level of agents at Dave Perry-Miller and the leadership team proved to be what our business needed,” Beach said. “We have been one of the top producers for several years and needed a bigger house.”
Balady has been in the real estate business for 38 years. Her career began working at the front desk, but soon realized that her skills would be better utilized as a residential agent.
Ten years ago, she and her daughter decided to team up. Beach had earned her real estate license right out of college. However, in the ensuing years she devoted the majority of her time to raising a family. Now that her kids were older, she was ready to get back in the business, and could not have chosen a better partner.
“Her breadth of knowledge was a godsend for me,” Beach said. “I think our skills complement each other really well.”
Balady and Beach sell primarily in North Dallas. More than 500 of the homes they have sold are located in the neighborhoods surrounding St. Rita’s, Jesuit, W.T. White, and The Hockaday School.
Balady is a member of Premier Producers and the Realtor Alliance, two networking groups made up of top producers across the area. D Magazine has recognized her as one of the area’s top agents every year since 2000. Beach has also been recognized every year since 2012. Both of them are regular volunteers at the Austin Street Shelter and St. Rita’s Bread ministry.
