If you spent the late ’90s or early 2000s in Charleston, South Carolina, you may recall a man in a Panama Jack hat strolling the beaches. To the untrained eye, he appeared to be relaxed enjoying the sand and surf. In reality, that hat was a walking billboard, and the man underneath was meticulously building a real estate career one conversation at a time.
Today Wayne Owens is a highly successful agent who spends most of his days working deals in Dallas’ posh neighborhoods. In November he joined Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate after four years with Ebby Halliday. (Dave Perry-Miller is owned by the Ebby Halliday Companies.)
“The whole thing that I’ve found about real estate is that it’s about being unique, branding yourself, and working,” Owens said. “If you’ve got those three things, you’re going to be very successful.”
