Prolific agent and broker Alan Sahliyeh said he recently joined Briggs-Freeman Sotheby’s because he felt the firm’s reputation and branding would benefit both him and his clients.
“With so many bigger players in the game, there is going to be more competition, and that’s going to make it much more difficult for smaller guys to make it on their own,” he said. “That why I wanted to align myself with the firepower of Briggs-Freeman Sotheby’s.”
Sahliyeh is a Dallas native who comes from a family of real estate veterans. He began his career working with his father before joining Dallas Luxury Realty seven years ago. Four years ago he earned his brokers license, a feat he is extremely proud of.
Developments have become one of his specialties. While working on a listing with fellow agent David Wyrick, he connected with Dooley Development. Before long he was overseeing their sales and marketing efforts and helping them overhaul their digital platforms.
He is currently involved with multiple Dooley projects. Chief among them is the Skyline Terraces, an Uptown development in that includes 25 townhomes with spectacular views of downtown Dallas. Other priority projects include the Luana in Trinity Groves, the 10-unit Pradera Townhomes at Prairie Avenue and San Jacinto Street, and the Nove in Bishop Arts. Earlier this month, Dooley closed a land deal near HG Sply on Greenville Avenue for a new development that will be known as The Oram.
Sahliyeh also continues to market select single-family homes as well, including the $2.5 million estate at 5947 Park Lane.
“It’s an awesome home that I am really excited about,” he said.
After getting settled in at Briggs, Sahliyeh looks forward to expanding his brokerage, the Sahliyeh Group. And as if that weren’t enough to keep him busy, Sahliyeh and his wife Kelley, a sales director for Tequila Casa Dragones, are expecting their first child in October. He may need some of that tequila between now and then.
