Michael Reynolds Joins Briggs Freeman to Focus on Clients, Luxury Market | CandysDirt.com

After three years building his own brokerage, Realtor Michael Reynolds joined Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty last week. Keeping the focus on clients and honing in on the DFW luxury market are his biggest reasons.

“I founded UResidential in 2014 and my vision was to establish a new North Texas real estate brokerage and grow it into other markets,” Reynolds said. “But I ended up doing more management than I had anticipated and my true passion is providing focus and service to my loyal clients.”

After a lot of reflection and talking to other people, Reynolds made the decision to join Briggs Freeman in their Uptown office. The Sotheby’s brand is a big draw for Reynolds, who also noted the excellent team in place there. 

“To me, the Sotheby’s brand is like no other — they’re the best luxury, the best branding, and the best marketing,” he said. “They’re the only brokerage I would want to be working with if I’m not working for myself.”

Gaynelle Henger

The luxury real estate brokerage business in Dallas just got even more competitive.

Last week, super-producing agent Gaynelle Henger, who had been powering the newly branded Coldwell Banker Global Luxury Preston Center office of 12 high-performing agents, turned in her resignation. Shocked, we all wondered where she would go next.

Yesterday, we found out: Gaynelle has joined The Collective Residential.

Gaynelle approached Collective founding partner Christy Berry, inked a deal, and she is now a Collective agent.

“The Collective Residential is a locally owned and operated boutique firm with a strong marketing program and a fresh, new brand. I really like what they are doing, where they are going, ” says Gaynelle.

“They understand what it takes to compete in this market,” she added. “Real estate is two things, marketing and customer service, anything else is distracting from that. And a local firm just really knows the market.”  (more…)

Kristi Davis

Take one look at her and you can tell why everyone loves Kristi Davis: she’s gorgeous, full of fun and energy, and one of the hardest-working Realtors in North Texas.

Which is why Ebby Halliday has just appointed Kristi Davis sales manager of its bustling Frisco Office. 

“Kristi brings extensive sales and management experience, as well as a strong desire to assist our Frisco agents in taking their careers to the next level,” says Mary Frances Burleson, president and Chief Executive Officer.  “A recipient of the Easterwood Cup Broker/Manager of the Year Award presented by the MetroTex Association of REALTORS®, Kristi offers a long history of distinguished service to our industry and community.”

A Dallas-Fort Worth native, Davis has been in real estate since 2002. Having been a top-producing agent she understands the life of a REALTOR®, the ebbs and flows of the industry, and the importance of lead generation.

“I am confident Kristi’s background will serve her well in our Frisco Office,” says Betty Misko, executive vice president and director of sales offices for the Ebby Halliday Companies. “She has an innate understanding of how agents learn, grow and prosper.”

Speaking of growth, Ebby Halliday is opening up FIVE (5!) new offices this year in Prosper, a second Rockwall office, and Cedar Creek Lake. A new office is coming to the existing Allen Ebby office, and Williams Trew, an Ebby Halliday Company, is opening an Aledo office.
