Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty announced its Top Producers for 2012 on Feb. 7 and guess who is the top producer of them all? Ms. Becky Frey. Yep, Becky (who recently sold a home down the street in about a week) is Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s Top Individual Producer for 2012, having closed more than $62 million real estate deals last year. To which we say, wowzers and Super Duper congratulations! Guess she will not be a school crossing guard for many moons… say what?
Ben Jones Builds Relationships That Last With A-Listers And Family Alike, and Charmed the Doyenne of Turkey Hill Road
CandysDirt.com talked recently with Ben Jones, Senior Vice President for Allie Beth Allman & Associates, which markets luxury properties primarily in the Park Cities, Preston Hollow and Lakewood areas.
The 20-plus year real estate veteran has his own team, Ben Jones Real Estate Group. He is one of the most sought-after agents in the Dallas area and thought we’d find out more about him.
I sat down recently to talk with Becky Frey one of Briggs Freeman’s top sellers and a 30-year veteran of the real estate scene. An athletic, outdoors person, Becky is quick to tell you all the reasons she loves living in Dallas — an enthusiasm she shares with her customers when she matches them to their dream homes.
Last month, as I sat in her Luther Lane office as Ellen Terry and Dave Perry-Miller hugged and talked about their future together, I do recall Ellen saying that several Dallas brokers had dialed her that very morning, inviting her to come on over. Well. Great Q & A with Ellen Terry and Robbie Briggs in Friday’s Dallas Business Journal with some new details about the merger. Candace Carlisle sure does a great job of covering commercial & residential real estate as well as sports biz. You have to subscribe to read the interview, but here are a few salient points:
Dave recently put Ebby behind the wheel of his Bentley…
I’ve just heard that, about 30 minutes ago, Ellen Terry was driving in her Jaguar with Ebby Halliday when Ellen had a fender bender right in front of Ebby’s Little White House. Ellen had apparently picked up Ebby from her home, and was taking her to, I’m told, the Little White House office down the street to drop off “something”. No telling what Ebby said to Ellen in that car to make her hit a post, but I sure would have liked to be a fly on the wall in that Jag.
The Scoop On Ellen Terry: “Today is My First Day at Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International, Thanks to You, Candy!”
As I told you Saturday/Sunday, Ellen Terry has made the move from Ebby Halliday – her high end boutique firm was purchased by Ebby in 1995 — to Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International. This comes just a month after Ebby folded her firm into the Dave Perry-Miller brand — told you about that one first, too! Well, today was Ellen’s first day at Briggs Freeman, she said, since I broke the news of her departure over the weekend!
Developing. I’m told this is effective today. Ellen Terry, whose high end boutique real estate company was just merged into the rapidly expanding Dave Perry Miller luxury real estate brand at Ebby Halliday, on October 24, actually, has left Ebby to join Briggs Freeman Sothebys. Still sorting details and trying to obtain quotes. Stay very tuned.
I love happy endings. I toured this home over a year ago, right after Ellen Terry sold it in April of 2009 for $1,275,000 — significantly marked down from $1,835,000. (Still a good deal: the seller, John Janik, paid $749,000 for the property in 2004.) The new owner then began a massive restoration and renovation with builder extraordinaire Marc Kleinmann, who took me through the home before one piece of terazzo, one interior brick wall, was tapped. Now, the home, which is right down the street from me, is ready for her coming out party in one of my dearest pubs, D Home. Shooting begins next week and I can hardly wait!
Word on the Street: Wrapping Up A Very Busy Week in Dallas Real Estate, Merger Damage Control Already Underway
We are all just walking zombies today waiting for tonight’s game. In the world of Dallas real estate, however, the streets are still abuzz with the aftermath of Monday’s announced merger/fold of Ellen Terry Realtors into Dave Perry-Miller & Associates.
Monday Morning Millionaire: California Cool in Greenway Parks is Kind of AC/DC, and Totally Makes Me Want to Cash in The 401K…
This post is a little late today because of all the broker news going on which delayed the House Porn! In honor of the merger of Ellen Terry Realtors and Dave Perry-Miller & Associates, I fell in love with a fabulous listing by Caroline Summers. Caroline was Ellen’s client when Ellen sold a gorgeous, sleek home Caroline built and designed in my ‘hood at 6400 Northaven. Now she works for her! And good taste runs in Caroline’s genes: her mother is designer extraordinaire Emily Summers, who is a member of the AD (as in Architectural Digest) 100.
