Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty today announced plans to open an office in Fort Worth, Texas, by early 2015. Having lived in China for several years, President and CEO Robbie Briggs says he understands just how small and interconnected the world has become, furthering the need to expand west and serve the entire Metroplex.
In the past several years, Fort Worth has experienced tremendous economic growth, from major corporate relocations to increased infrastructure and residential development. Fort Worth also ranks as the fastest-growing big city in the nation, according to data release by the U.S. Census Bureau this month.
Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty hopes to better serve Fort Worth by opening offices within the city, while offering the local, regional and national exposure of an established global brand.
“We are so excited. I’ve always wanted to open an office in Fort Worth because I know its importance and love the city,” says Briggs. “The world views the DFW Metroplex as one market, but we understand each city has its own unique character and personality. Together, with the leadership and guidance of local businesses and influencers, we can deliver our world-class brand and services to the world-class city of Fort Worth.”
“This transition recognizes that the Dallas-Fort Worth area has become a unified real estate market, and we are pleased that Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty will now provide our services throughout the entire DFW Metroplex,” said Philip White, president and chief executive officer, Sotheby’s International Realty Affiliates LLC.
