Dallas City Center Realtors Buys Virginia Cook’s Sherman Office

Share News:

We were the first to tell you of the sad demise of Virginia Cook Realtors. And though “others” reporting this story have said that Virginia Cook Realtors shut down all offices, that is not the truth.

The Sherman office of Virginia Cook Realtors has been acquired by Dallas City Center Realtors.

Paragon Realtors debuted in Sherman, Texas, this week with the acquisition of the Virginia Cook Sherman office, the No.1 brokerage in the area, by Dallas-based Dallas City Center Realtors. Sherman is about one hour north of Dallas.

“These agents were so committed to staying together and active,” says Yvette Grove, director of Dallas City Center Coaching and Training. “They had already selected another building. They had their news signs designed and ready in a week.”

Agents chose the name “Paragon” for the newly branded office. “Paragon” is a model or pattern of excellence, exemplifying the hallmark reputation of both companies, says Pat Rowland, manager of the former Virginia Cook Sherman office.

The rebrand and new look will begin rolling out across several North Texas counties this month, including Grayson.

Mike Miller, broker/owner of Dallas City Center Realtors and its affiliates, says both offices possess the same unique culture, making an ideal and synergistic fit of the acquisition.

All 26 agents and the staff 0f the former VC office are on board and enthusiastic about the acquisition and their future. 

“Mike Miller is an innovator, and has created a high energy, agent-centric firm that allows fast response to our clients,” said Pat Rowland, manager since 2014. “We excited about the future of Paragon Realtors!”

In an ever-changing industry, both Dallas City Center & Paragon Realtors continue to maintain their focus on a high-level client experience.

“By training and hiring deeply caring real estate advisors who offer unprecedented personal service, we continue to retain relevance in this brokerage competitive market. Though technology is an increasing part of the real estate process, transactions have also become more complex, making well-trained experts more essential than ever,” says Yvette Grove. “Dallas City Center affiliates all strive to be the Paragon of excellence in North Texas.”

The moment we walked into the Sherman office, she adds, our entire staff felt like we were family.

“Not only was it a great fit, I really feel our systems and technology will be a great asset to the agents and help them better serve their clients everywhere,” said Mike Miller.

Dallas City Center Realtors now has five offices across North Texas and believes in branding each office and agent uniquely for their location and reputation in the community. The firm is excited about the brand the Sherman team has created.

The founding DCC office is located in the heart of Dallas, on Monticello in Uptown, serving clients for nearly 20 years.
