This summer, Leigh Ann Barrick joined Engel & Voelkers’ Southlake office after spending the past 11 years as one of Keller Williams’ top sellers.
“As much admiration as I have for Keller Williams and where I’ve been, I think it was time for me to grow and learn some new things, and this was a great opportunity,” she said.
One of the biggest advantages for her was the fact that Engel & Voelkers has a presence in Georgia’s Golden Isles. Barrick grew up in St. Simons Island, Georgia, before her former job at American Airlines brought her to North Texas. These days she spends about 70 percent of her time in Dallas-Fort Worth, and the rest in Georgia.
“I found now that after 20 years in real estate, a lot of my clients are looking for a second home, a vacation home or an investment, so Engel & Voelkers made sense to me,” she said. “They are also involved in things like aviation and yachting, which makes sense with my airline background.”
