It’s official. Fort Worth is the fastest growing city in America, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Between 2000 and 2013, the city saw a 42.34 percent increase in population thanks to a business-friendly environment and its legendary welcoming spirit.
“The Fort Worth region is attractive to international corporations, boasts an increasing number of Fortune 500 firms and pulls businesses and people from all over Texas and the nation, said Robbie Briggs, President and CEO of Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty.
John Zimmerman, Executive Vice President, has been a first-hand witness to the Fort Worth’s explosive growth. Since joining the company in 2012, he’s seen his business grow to unprecedented heights, selling more than 100 homes in the past year alone.
“Businesses are coming to Fort Worth, and that means people are coming with them,” said Zimmerman, who has been in the real estate industry for 22 years. “We’re also seeing a lot of people moving within the Metroplex. People no longer think about boundaries. They may live in Fort Worth, but they can work in Southlake, attend sporting events in the Mid-Cities, and head to Dallas on the weekend. The whole region is attracting people who want to have it all.”
The area’s 360-degree lifestyle is a perfect fit for a brokerage that combines comprehensive marketing and international reach.
“Sotheby’s makes everything connect. With offices all over the world and agents who are seasoned and smart and who understand the importance of marketing in print, online and through incredible networks we’re able to do the very best for our clients, and it shows,” Zimmerman said. “Joining Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s international Realty has made a huge difference in my business.”
