Referrals are the key to a successful real estate career, and building relationships is the key to sustaining it. No one knows that better than Keller Williams agent Don Neilson. In fact, it’s his goal to become your irreplaceable, trusted real estate adviser. 

His vast experience (he has an MBA in finance and is a retired CPA) serves his clients so well that he’s built an enviable network, deftly guiding his clients into sound real estate investments and earning repeat business time and again. Before moving to Dallas in 2010, Don established his own firm in Memphis — The Neilson Group — and built it to 60 agents in two locations. He and his team sold hundreds of historic homes.  For this reason and so much more, Neilson has earned the title of High Caliber Agent of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans

Despite all of the new technology available to agents today, success is still determined by an agent’s ability to get a deal done, says David Collier, this week’s High Caliber Agent presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans. It takes passion, commitment, and consistency to keep clients coming back, and to build a business that thrives no matter what cycle of the Dallas real estate market we are in.

“I’ve been witness to the ebbs and flows of the Dallas real estate market, in which you see tons of new agents piling into the industry believing that it is an easy business that translates to an easy way to make money,” Collier told CandysDirt.com. “But take it from me: You must still be on the ground and dedicated to make buying and selling happen in this marketplace, today or any day.”

Nora Ling Lane, a Executive Vice President of Allie Beth Allman & Associates, knows this. It was ingrained upon her by her mother, who was also a consummate professional. So it’s obvious why we’ve chosen Lane as our High Caliber Agent, sponsored by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans.

Sure, we know a lot of real estate agents in North Texas by how much they sell, what addresses they’ve listed, and what brokerages they have worked with, but we don’t often get to focus on who they are, what they’re passionate about, and what inspires them.

Today we launch our High Caliber Agent series, which takes a more introspective look at some of the best real estate agents the our region has to offer. These agents don’t just focus on closings and contracts, but instead treasure and appreciate the people who make the business.

Our first High Caliber Agent sponsored by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans is none other than David Griffin. This broker has done wonders highlighting the culture and people that make the neighborhoods both he and his agents serve so special. If you’re looking for an agent who will serve you far beyond the transaction, look no further than David Griffin, today’s High Caliber Agent sponsored by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans.
