FROM MY PERSPECTIVE
Awards season continues in the real estate world.
In the past two issues of The Wall Street Journal, on our advertising page, we’ve shared with you the names of our agents who made two of the most prestigious rankings in the country, both published by RealTrends: The Thousand, which is what it sounds like — the top 1,000 agents in the entire U.S. based on sales volume or transaction sides — and America’s Best Real Estate Professionals, a further ranking of the top agents in the country, also based on volume or sides.
Now, we bring it a little closer to home: the D Magazine awards for the best agents in Dallas. D has been covering the city since 1974, and today is an empire that includes the print magazine, the dmagazine.com website, a custom-publishing division and even an events company. D is a staple for Dallasites, covering everything from City Hall to scandals to society. (Sometimes all three in one story.) D is also an icon here, which is why its real estate awards come with an extra dash of pride. As dmagazine.com explains: “To find the Best Real Estate Agents in Dallas, we survey the people who know them best: local homebuyers, D subscribers and their peers in the industry (mortgage, insurance and real estate agents). The winning REALTORS® are those who have shown exceptional customer service and dedication to helping North Texas residents buy and sell the houses they call home.”
This is not a pay-to-play ranking. This is the real deal. And, I’m happy to report that more than 100 agents from Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty earned the honors this year. Most of them have before — and most of them will again. Beginning July 1, come see who they are at dmagazine.com and in the July print issue of D Magazine. Working with any of them means you are in the best hands possible.
Take it from me. I get to work alongside them every day. Here’s to the best — and to the best clients, colleagues and staff in the business, too.
I have a lot to be proud of.
