In 2010, he led the Briggs-Freeman brokerage to its affiliation with the renowned Sotheby’s International Realty. After just four years the brokerage was ranked #5 out of more than 800 Sotheby’s International Realty offices worldwide. In 2016 the company brokered the historic sale of the W.T.

The company’s website has won several awards by REAL Trends, Inc., and 1000Watt Consulting after the two firms studied the websites of the top 500 brokerage firms in the country. Its high ranking is uncontested today.
