Gaynelle Henger, one of our favorite agents/managers/real estate pros, just keeps on giving us a reason to keep up with her!

The former Ebby agent was Dave Perry-Miller’s Preston center office manager for three years. Last April, she left Dave Perry-Miller to join the newly branded Coldwell Banker Global Luxury Preston Center, where she brought agents in by the truckload. Just last October, though, she jumped ship over to The Collective, which of course just merged with New York City-based Compass Real Estate. Word came last night that Robbie Briggs brought Gaynelle in to manage two offices after losing manager Bryan Pacholski. Bryan is now working in agent development at The Collective/Compass. 

And there you have it, four brokerages in 14 months. The great thing about agents is that they jump one ship for another all the time, and all remain professional, even friends, about it. As an agent once told me, you never know when you will work a deal with an agent you once sat next to: don’t burn bridges!  (more…)

Cathy Browne and Beth Douglas joined forces, creating a power-packed team at Ebby Hallidays Allen offices.

Our readers will recognize Cathy Browne as the record-setting Allen Realtor that has dominated this Collin County ‘burb for years. But now she’s setting her sights on new territory. Part of her winning strategy to stay on top now includes another top-producing agent, as Browne and Beth Douglas have joined forces to create the Browne-Douglas Group at Ebby Halliday Realtors’ gorgeous new Allen offices.  

“I am pleased to welcome Beth Douglas and Cathy Browne, who are widely known for integrity and dedication to providing clients with exceptional customer service,” said Diane Hausler, sales manager of Ebby’s Allen office. “Beth and Cathy work tirelessly to serve their clients’ best interests and offer extensive knowledge of the North Texas market.” 

With a combined 25 years of experience, we’re sure great things are ahead for Browne and Douglas.

Scott Noblett admits that his real estate perspective is different from many of his peers. He believes that serves him well at Dallas City Center Realtors, where he was recently named to the board of directors.

“DCC is known as one of the brokers that tries to do things a little differently,” he said. “They focus not only on educating the agent, but also on fostering an environment where everyone feels totally welcome, and transfers that on to the client.”

6820 Garlinghouse Front

To some buyers, 6820 Garlinghouse looks like too much work. It’s a 1985-built ranch in Far North Dallas that is in original condition, according to Ashli Clements of Minnette Murray Properties, a boutique real estate group under Coldwell banker residential brokerage.

“It has really good bones and the floor plan works well for today’s families,” she said. “It’s totally livable right now. The seller lived in home for four years and didn’t change a thing. The breakfast nook is actually beautiful, with that gorgeous ceiling.”

But today’s buyers seem to be lacking in vision and inspiration, because at 2,565 square feet, this home is priced just right for the renovation-minded. This four-bedroom, three-bath home inside the Dallas city limits but with Plano ISD schools is being marketed for just $350,000 — a steal! Plus, buyers will receive a $10,000 allowance toward upgrades, making those Pinterest boards you’ve been carefully curating for your dream house even closer to tangible reality.

Robbie Briggs

Robbie Briggs announced his brokerage’s expansion into Fort Worth today.

Set to open early next year, Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty is solidifying its relationship with Cowtown with a new office in Fort Worth proper.

“We are so excited. I’ve always wanted to open an office in Fort Worth because I know its importance and love the city,” said Robbie Briggs. “The world views the DFW Metroplex as one market, but we understand each city has its own unique character and personality. Together, with the leadership and guidance of local businesses and influencers, we can deliver our world-class brand and services to the world-class city of Fort Worth.”
