Life inside the #1 luxury brokerage in Texas: Amazing properties, influential people, a lot of fun


Back To Blog

A new year calls for a new perspective. This one happens to come with a wine room. And a concierge.

Each Friday, Russ Anderson, the president and 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 January 12, 2024.




It’s not just the new year that’s new.

There is a new opportunity waiting for you at 1747 Leonard Street in Dallas. That address is in the heart of the Dallas Arts District — and it happens to be the address of HALL Arts Residences.

There, in that 28-story beauty of a building, are a handful of new homes that have recently been made available. They are called the Masterpiece Collection, and they are something quite special. There are just 12 in all, on floors 20 through 25. Each has city and horizon views that will take your breath away. They are luxuriously large, ranging in size from nearly 3,000 to almost 4,600 square feet.

Like the other 30-plus homes at HALL Arts Residences, the Masterpiece Collection comes with all the luxuries of the building, including Bulthaup kitchens, Gaggenau appliances, Dornbracht fixtures, a pet spa, a wine cellar, a sky-high pool, even an alfresco putting green. My favorite perk? All the offerings from HALL Arts Hotel, which is next door: in-home room service, a sommelier on call and dinner parties at your place, catered by the hotel chef.

This is a new level of living.

Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty has been the exclusive brokerage for HALL Arts Residences since its beginning. Our agents Cindi Caudle and Kyle Richards have put many happy homeowners in the lap of luxury — and they can for you. In fact, they’ve already sold one Masterpiece Collection home and another is under contract.

A new year. A new view. Opportunity is knocking — but not for long.
