Milligan

The Halum team includes Faisal Halum, Bill Churchill, Jeanne Milligan, and Michael Mahon.

Jeanne Milligan long aspired to join the Faisal Halum team at Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s. In May, the move came to fruition when she officially joined the top-producing trio of Halum, Bill Churchill, and Michael Mahon. She says that she hasn’t stopped working since, which is exactly what she’d hoped for.

“I wanted to work for Faisal because of his success and professionalism. The properties he has listed are the cream of the crop and he has a great eye for design,” Milligan said. “He also has great hip pocket listings and is very well thought of in the community. And he’s great to work for.” (more…)

magnificent Mediterranean estate

I always enjoy researching the luxury homes of Dallas. When I started digging last week, I found some extraordinary information on our Monday Morning Millionaire. Long before this magnificent Mediterranean estate was built, the original structure at 3601 Lexington Avenue was the first house constructed in Highland Park, “a model suburban city.”

Mr. and Mrs. S.W. Marshall built the original home in 1908, and it was considered a showplace. There were no other homes in sight, except for a couple of distant farmhouses.

Let me take you back in time for a minute with this snippet from The Dallas Morning News archives:

“When Mrs. Marshall and I moved into our home, we had no neighbors north of the Katy Railroad, although at least one other house, that of Hugh Prather, was under construction,” related Mr. Marshall. “Knox street was then an unpaved, unkempt country lane on the outskirts of Dallas.”

The Marshalls were also parents of the first child born in Highland Park, a daughter, named Eleanor.

Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty, a major independent brokerage in North Texas catering to luxury real estate buyers and sellers, will celebrate a very special anniversary coming next year.

For this brand, 2020 will mark 60 years since the doors first opened at the corner of Lovers Lane and Preston Road as Ben R. Briggs Realtors with a small group of agents to start what would become one of the most significant independently owned boutique brokerages in Texas. Robbie Briggs joined his father’s firm in 1979, took the reins in 1983, and merged with Charles Freeman in 1989 to form Briggs Freeman Real Estate Brokerage. In 2010, Robbie bought Charles out and aligned with Sotheby’s International Realty to create Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty. 

What better way to celebrate a diamond anniversary than with a big real estate move!

Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s is upgrading its current Lovers Lane headquarters with a move to prestigious Turtle Creek Boulevard.

The move this fall makes room for the firm’s growing agent population and pinnacles the company’s 60 years of success, which will be celebrated throughout 2020.
