Don Bingaman is a native Texan who lived in Amarillo and Sherman before his family moved to Northwest Arkansas in his high school years. After receiving his finance degree from the University of Arkansas he moved back to Texas. His life-long interest in real estate began in college while working for a homebuilder and transitioned into commercial real estate in Texas. While living in University Park and working in downtown office buildings, Don realized that it was personal relationships and great architecture that led him to the business.
Don worked for the real estate division of a large commercial bank before moving to marketing, leasing, and sales of large office buildings for such firms as Cushman & Wakefield, Lincoln Property Company, and CBRE.
Don understands sales and customer service and completed over 575 office leasing and sale transactions valued at more than $740 million (7 million square feet). In 2004 and 2005 he was recognized by the CoStar Group (national information firm) as one of the Top 20 Commercial Brokers in the Dallas/Fort Worth area based upon his transaction volume during those years.
Don and his family lived in the University Park area of Dallas for 20 years before moving to Southlake in 2002. Extremely grateful for his commercial background, Don grew less excited about marketing office space as his interest in helping families find quality of life and great communities felt more meaningful. He quickly helped clients buy and sell fourteen homes valued at approximately $14.3 million while working on his own as a single broker. Having worked for much larger commercial brokerage firms he knew the advantage of teamwork and greater resources. After meeting with the top competitive firms in the area, Don is very excited to have joined the best at Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty.
The real estate market has become more complex. In a dynamic metropolitan area like DFW, the market is a fast-moving blend of economic variables, development trends, supply and demand factors, as well as community and educational factors. Don still believes it’s all about lifestyle, quality of life, and finding the best fit for each individual client. He thrives on sharing his own real-life experiences with his clients.
With so much information available, one might think the need for an actual realtor would decrease. Some think they can just do the research and not need representation; however, research shows the dependency on realtors has increased, not decreased. There’s now too much information and much of it is inaccurate, cumbersome, or outdated. While today’s buyers often come to real estate agents after significant “shopping” on line, it’s the process after selecting a home (negotiating contracts, inspections, repairs, lenders, and careful attention to the closing details) where realtors add value and peace of mind.
Don cares greatly about his clients and he routinely exceeds their expectations. Whether it’s listening carefully to his buyer clients’ hopes and dreams to find the right property or providing unmatched marketing and buyer activity for his seller clients, he proves his value. Don excels at representing both buyers or sellers. Whether it’s finding the right community or knowing the ideal property not yet on the market, Don will deliver results.
