During their trip to Dubai, a team from Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International had a chance to meet business influencers from all over the world.

In this video, Ben Briggs, international business consultant for Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty, talks about a meeting with a hotel owner from Abu Dhabi. The man is interested in diversifying his portfolio beyond the region’s oil-focused economy. So he asked about hotel properties in Texas – and whether Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty could introduce him to hotel properties in Dallas.

Robbie Briggs, President and CEO of Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty, traveled to Dubai earlier in March to attend the grand opening of the Sotheby’s International Realty office there. He was accompanied by son Ben; Bernie Uechtritz, head of the Ranch and Land Division; and Angie Nelson, also with the Ranch and Land Division.
