Douglas Wingfield was born in Arkansas but has lived mostly in Texas. He believes that when people think of the South, they picture sweet tea, country music, big hair and the word “y’all.” Douglas really likes tea, badly sings country music, does not have big hair and y’all is a word in his everyday vocabulary. He believes that everyone deserves to be listened to and treated with respect.
His varied work experience has taught Douglas how to manage time and anticipate possible obstacles.
After a brief stint in the Air Force in the mid-1980s, Douglas became interested in property management.
He relocated to Dallas from El Paso in 1990 and managed several multi-family properties and a staff of 20.
In the capacity as an AVP / Trust Officer with Bank of America, he assisted his clients with the purchase, sale and management of high-end properties throughout the Dallas area.
After purchasing his second home in 1997, his real estate broker suggested he leave his current position and come work with her. On a leap of faith, Douglas left his corporate job and jumped into real estate sales. Success was immediate. On his first full day as a REALTOR® Douglas sold a home and on his third day he listed one. He had found a new passion in his life: to help people achieve the dream of home ownership.
His first years as a real estate agent displayed his tenacity for successful transactions as he was the top producer in the office and was presented with the President’s Award for sales volume.
As a real estate Broker, Douglas owned and operated a residential real estate company. Being open to exploring a broader range of sales and marketing strategies for his clients, he decided to join the exceptional team at Briggs Freeman Sotheby's International Realty in 2019.
Douglas strives to provide a southern hospitality experience. This entails a fun and exciting transaction from beginning to end while exhibiting both grit and determination. Real estate transactions can be complicated. Buying or selling a home is a high-stakes,situation involving emotions and major decisions. Clients need an agent who will work tirelessly on their behalf. With Douglas' decades of experience, he has encountered challenges during transactions but thoughtful planning, strategic thinking and through genuine good will, he has helped his clients overcome each obstacle.
Outside of real estate, Douglas enjoys spending time with his partner, Philip, and their two dogs at their home in the Wynnewood Hills neighborhood of Oak Cliff. Their mid-century modern home was one of the nine homes featured on the Heritage Oak Cliff Tour of Homes in 2018. They have a second home in the Ouachita Mountains of Arkansas where they go to watch the wildlife and unwind. Douglas loves to read, travel and occasionally to sketch.
He has volunteered his time with the Resource Center of Dallas, Reading Partners (a children's literacy nonprofit) and First United Methodist Church of Dallas. Douglas is a supporter of the Dallas Museum of Art and the North Texas Food Bank.... Less
