Despite only being in her mid-20s, Macey Snyder has already made a name for herself in sales and design. Now the Texas Tech alum is ready to take on real estate as an agent for JP and Associates.

Those who travel to West Texas may recognize the family name. The Snyder’s stores in Seymour and Childress are community staples, selling hardware, building materials and other home essentials.

“We’re just kind of a little one-stop shop for a small town,” Snyder said. She grew up in Seymour, a town of less than 3,000 people nearly an hour away most big-name retailers. When the local western wear store in Childress closed a few years ago, her family decided to start selling clothing as well.

Trisha Hoelscher recently joined the Ebby Halliday Southlake office.  She previously worked at Engel and Volkers. However, after interviewing with multiple brokerages, she ultimately felt that Ebby was the best fit for her.

“I can’t say enough about the level of integrity, ethics, and unparalleled customer service that they offer,” Hoelscher said. “They have an amazing support system- it truly is a sense of community. It feels like coming home.”

Hoelscher will focus primarily on properties in Westlake, Vaquero, Southlake and Colleyville, areas she describes as “on fire” due to the immense amount of construction going on there.

During her career, she’s been active in pocket listings, private sales, and global relocations. She credits her success in part to a philosophy of building long-term relationships based on commitment and trust.

“My goal, as always, is to provide you exceptional, comprehensive service,” she said.

Before reinstating her license in 2015 to focus full time on real estate, Hoelscher spent 15 year in sales and consulting where she honed her negotiating skills. She also ran her own design firm, an experience that she draws upon when working with clients.While her hectic schedule does now allow for much time designing these days. she believes that having a passion for architecture and design melds well with her real estate business.

One fun fact about Hoelscher (pronounced HELL-chur) is that her family has been recognized as the largest in Texas, and likely one of the top three largest in the nation. Her ancestors, Anton and Maria Catherine Hoelscher were Germans who immigrated to Texas in the 1840’s. Their descendants now number in the thousands, with the vast majority of those living today residing in Texas.

“Any person with the same last name is probably related to me,” she said. “There are a ton of us.”

 

Nicole Espinosa, the top agent for the past three years at JP and Associates, has joined Keller Williams. She and her team of five agents will be based out of the Preston Road location in Dallas.

“In order for us to get to where we want to be I felt like this was a much better fit for our goals,” she said.

One of those goals is doubling the size of her team by year’s end. In 2017, Espinosa expanded into Houston where she now has around 20 listings. She hopes to soon add local agents there, and believes being a part of Keller Williams will play a big role in making that happen.

We caught up with Evan Stewart and Nilza Rueckert, the principals at Rueckert+Stewart Real Estate Group, who, along with sales associate Mandy Mahoey, gave us this statement about their move from Ebby Halliday Realtors to Compass Real Estate Dallas:
 
“We are extremely excited to align our business at The RUECKERT + STEWART Group with Compass Real Estate. This new partnership provides opportunities to deepen the professional value our customers have come to expect, and focus on crafting unparalleled, lasting consumer relationships.
 
Through the robust technology solutions at Compass, our Group has the ability to remain nimble in a tech-driven society, and provide expansive modern solutions for a new era of real estate professionalism.”

Yet another high-profile agent has decided to leave a local brokerage for Compass Real Estate. In early June, Phillip Murrell made what he said was the extremely difficult decision to leave Dave Perry-Miller after more than three years. He cited Compass’s technology and innovative marketing as deciding actors.

“I wasn’t looking for a change at all,” Murrell said. “It was one of the hardest decisions professionally that I have made. Lee Thomas and the people over at Dave Perry-Miller are some of the best people in the world.”

Pereira

 

Daylon Pereira said he would never leave Allie Beth Allman and Associates unless he was going to start his own brokerage.  Then representatives from Compass Real Estate came calling, and everything changed.

“It was a pretty sudden sort of a deal,” Pereira said. “Though it was difficult to leave Allie Beth after seven years, in the end it’s about the services I’m able to provide my clients.  For that reason, I am thrilled to say I made the right move.”

One of the deciding factors for Pereira was what he felt was Compass’s superior commitment to technology. Several years ago, he and a friend developed their own real estate marking technology. At the time, it was hard to convince others of its value. Today, cutting-edge technology and marketing are at the forefront of the changing real estate landscape.

“I feel like real estate in general is the only industry that needed to catch up with the rest of the world on technology,” he said. “Technology drives the entire consumer market these days. To stay relevant, I feel we as agents have to recognize that real estate is no different, and most brokerages have fallen behind on that curve.” (more…)

Kevin Tally, a Dallas-based agent with more than a decade of North Texas real estate experience, recently joined Allie Beth Allman and Associates after spending the past three years at Rogers Healy and Associates.

Tally is one of the youngest “veterans” in the Dallas market. He earned his real estate license 10 years ago while still a high schooler in Fort Worth. Despite being accepted into both the University of Texas and TCU, he chose to forgo college and go to work in his hometown.

“I started thinking about it and said, ‘you know what? If I go to college, I’m going to get back into this field anyway because I really love real estate, construction, architecture and all of that,’” he said. “I took the summer off and then I started hustling.”
