Each Friday, Russ Anderson, the CEO and president 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 October 13, 2023.
WHAT THE CEO SAYS
Have you heard about the wine auction in France that’s been a phenomenon since 1859? Or about the edgy architecture firm in Mexico City that is the talk of the town? Or about furniture made of a blend of fiberglass and plaster?
You will, in the brand-new RESIDE magazine, out today inside select North Texas subscriber copies of The Wall Street Journal.
RESIDE is a uniquely curated page-turner, whether you experience it in print or online, at briggsfreeman.com/reside. It is a special project that we create twice a year in tandem with Sotheby’s International Realty. Not only does the new issue reveal almost 30 pages of some of our most exciting available listings and sold properties — and many of our amazing agents — but also it is loaded with stories on everything from furnishings to jewelry to art. In this fall issue, you’ll also find:
• The Sydney suburb getting a lot of buzz.
• What Asian art collectors are buying now.
• How flowers, leaves and butterflies become jewelry.
• Midcentury and Contemporary homes in California.
• The soulful rooms of a decorator who hopes you never notice her work.
My favorite part? The section called Gallery, which begins on page 64 and is all about our brokerage’s world here in North Texas. We’ve got exciting updates on developments we represent, new real estate market numbers for every neighborhood and some of our finest agents and the properties they are offering — or have already sold.
Yes, you’ve got to move fast here in Dallas and Fort Worth. There are reasons people keep moving here, every single day, and our agents know them all.
Enjoy every page of RESIDE magazine. Here’s to more knowledge, always.
