CEO Robbie Briggs: If real estate were a movie, these would be its superstars

Each Friday, Robbie Briggs, CEO of Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty, writes about luxury, trends, business and more in the advertising pages of the Mansion section of The Wall Street Journal. Below is his letter of February 18, 2022.


If the real estate industry ever gets its full-length feature film, it will be a thriller — and I know about 400 stars who deserve top billing.

They are the agents of Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty. In one of the hottest, most challenging markets in our brokerage’s 62-year history, they continue to zig, zag, adapt and excel. In fact, for 2021, they surpassed our own projection of total sales volume and came in at a blockbuster $3 billion.

I’d like to shine some light on the ones who had a year they will never forget:

Our top team is once again the Faisal Halum Group, with Faisal Halum, Bill Churchill, Jeanne Milligan and Noora Bass. Our top individual is Tyler Thomas, who is in our Ranch and Land Division. Tyler is also our overall top producer, companywide. It gets no better than these expert agents.

Their colleagues across our offices had a golden year, too:  

In our Fort Worth office: Top team: The Spann Group (Jeremy Spann, Laura Spann, Michelle Stum, James Pederson, Carol Van Hook). Top individual: Adrianne Holland.

For our Lakewood office: Top team: Sayre Hettrick Group (Kevin Sayre, Karen Hettrick, George Hettrick). Top individual: Becky Oliver.

At our North office, in Plano: Top team: Winchester Steitle Group (Patti Winchester, Maureen Steitle, Amy Miller, Cami Rodriguez). Top individual: Linda Baker.

For our Southlake office: Top team: Nancy Dennis Team (Nancy Dennis, Jana Fisher). Top individual: Kim Bedwell.

In our Turtle Creek office, in Dallas: Top team: Faisal Halum Group (Faisal Halum, Bill Churchill, Jeanne Milligan, Noora Bass.) Top individual: Pogir.

In our Ranch and Land division: Top team: Burgher Ray Ranch Group (David Burgher, Harlan Ray, Clay Bebee, Barbara Kurilecz, Connor Hunt, Davis Walker). Top individual: Tyler Thomas.

There are many more awards, and I want you to come see them all at briggsfreeman.com/top. Behind this stellar cast, too, is a crew of superstar assistants, staffers and executives — and the very best clients in the world. For all of us, I thank you. You make this movie a lot of fun.
