Bess Dickson said she was excited to go to Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s because it gave her the best tools and opportunities to serve her clients. She recently started there after spending the past two years at Texas Urban Living Realty. Before that she was at Dallas City Center Realtors for several years.
“Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s has the same perspective that I do. It’s about relationships and how we can come along side you and help guide you,” she said. “There are so many things about a home that aren’t covered in a pic or online description and can’t be mathematically quantified. That’s what we as real estate professionals can help with.”
The Dallas Native Team of Zackery Thomas, Mary Beth Harrison, Candace Barnes, and Keenan Cowan has joined Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate.
Mary Beth Harrison says she and the Dallas Native Team are happy to now be at Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate.
“It was a very difficult decision,” Harrison said. “I’m a pretty loyal person and had given 17 years to Keller Williams.”
As her team’s name suggests, Harrison was born and raised in Dallas. She began her career at Ebby Halliday three decades ago. Since then, she’s earned Texas Monthly’s Five-Star Real Estate Agent Award, and been named one of D Magazine’s Top Realtors for the past 13 years. She’s also active in the MetroTex Association of Realtors, and regularly teaches continuing education classes for fell agents.
Tucked away in East Dallas, less than four miles from the shores of White Rock Lake, this hidden gem at 5637 Emrose Terrace is a perfect example of renovations done right. From its espresso floors and decorative lighting to the new roof and radiant barrier insulation, literally everything in the home has been redone since 2015.
“It looks and feels like a very modern, nice home on the inside,” Dallas City Center agent Scott Noblett said. “You can see the pool when you walk through the front door, through the living room and out to the back patio.”
After more than 17 years at Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty, Christopher McGuire has moved to Compass Real Estate. He began the new role on his 13th wedding anniversary.
“I felt that Compass, with their philosophy and tools, gave me the best opportunity to provide better value for my clients,” McGuire said. “It will also give my clients better tools so that we can collaborate more efficiently.”
The decision was not an easy one for McGuire. His parents, Jackie and Cory McGuire, work at Briggs Freeman and helped him begin his real estate career there back in 2001. They weren’t initially thrilled with his decision, but ultimately understood his reasoning.
The Standard’s COO Logan Nichols (left) and founder Zach De Bernardi hope partnering with Amazon will help grow their firm’s brand.
The Standard Real Estate announced a new partnership with Amazon to create a custom digital store. Under the setup, clients will have new options for purchasing home necessities and furniture.
“We are focusing on making the best of technology and being forward thinking,” founder and chief executive officer Zach De Bernardi said. “Amazon is everywhere so it makes sense for us to try and work with one of the bigger brands. It’s just one more added benefit that we can use to help our clients.”
De Bernardi said he was inspired after seeing similar programs implemented at two New York boutique real estate firms. He believes that partnering with Amazon will help build his company’s brand and help its agents better serve clients.
Lori Lamb joined Ebby Halliday Realtors this month. She had previously worked for the Coldwell Banker Park Cities Office.
“The thing that drew me to Ebby was the enormous presence and high respect in and from Dallas and the surrounding communities,” she said.
Lamb, originally from New York, has lived in Dallas for 26 years. Prior to landing in Texas she worked in the corporate world, with stops at American Honda and the Toyota Motor Company in Los Angeles.
The State Fair of Texas is just around the corner, which means Jeremy Larsen is about to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. Last year, the home designer and Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Realtor entered three items into the Fair’s cookie contest. He was recognized for them all.
“I didn’t think that was a very big deal until other people started telling me it was,” Larsen said. “It turns out a first-time entrant getting three honorable mentions is pretty good.” (more…)
Local agent Matt Scobee left Clay Stapp + Co. after five years to start his own brokerage, Iconic Real Estate. The new firm, which started with an initial team of five agents, is located at 3111 Canton Street on the outskirts of Deep Ellum.
“My vision is for us to be a brand conscious, tech forward, full-service boutique brokerage,” Scobee said. “We want to provide an impeccable experience that really works to nurture relationships, meet the goals of our clients, and then exceed those goals.” (more…)
