Stephen White says he truly enjoyed his time at Allie Beth Allman & Associates. However, the opportunity to work with and learn from a long-time friend convinced him it was time to change. On August 6, he announced that he was moving to eXp Realty.
“I’ve got nothing but good things to say about Allie Beth and the firm. They couldn’t have been better or nicer, and I enjoyed my experience there,” White said. “Trey Williams is the reason I moved. We’ve worked really well together and he offered to kind of mentor me and show me the ropes.”
Williams and White met at Bonton Farms, the South Dallas nonprofit bringing hope to an area lacking food options and work opportunities. About five years ago, White was looking for a new way to give back. He approached Café Momentum founder Chad Houser, who suggested he meet with Bonton Farms executive director Daron Babcock.
“Daron and I hit it off and I started helping out down there,” White said. “It’s kind of become a calling for me”
White’s son was the first Highland Park High School student to choose a nonprofit for his senior internship when he picked Bonton Farms. The experience helped White better get to know the team there. Among them was Williams, an eXp agent, and veteran of the real estate industry for nearly three decades. They are both passionate about Bonton’s mission of hope and have collaborated on multiple efforts. Chief among them were the farm’s expansion and opening of a new market. Today much of their focus has turned to affordable and transitional housing.
For the past three years, White’s firm Sentry Real Estate Advisors has made a name for itself helping clients protest their property bills. This tax season he’s helped them save more than $10 million. He doesn’t charge for his property tax services because he believes real estate is a service-oriented business. For him, it’s just another way to show how hard he will work to deliver for them.
Before going into real estate full time, White spent more than 20 years in financial services. He’s also bought and sold oil and gas companies, run a handful of restaurants, and was even involved in the yogurt business. In real estate, he’s been heavily invested on the commercial side. Now he’s ready to expand his presence in residential side.
“I’m really excited about this,” White said. “I think it’s the best fit for me and I’m looking forward to working with a friend who can teach me a lot.”
