Growing Economy, Friendly People – Focus on Fort Worth

Fort Worth is the place to be – the fastest-growing big city in the country, the best downtown in the country, one of the best cities for job seekers.

And home to three new Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty offices.

We had an exciting kickoff for those offices this week – a party at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. Clients, community leaders and our Fort Worth team gathered to celebrate and to share their insights about the city. Here’s a peek at the party chatter:

Neal Shields (Wells Fargo – Financial Advisor) on the Fort Worth economy …

“On our side of business, lending is exploding because so many people are wanting to build and so many people are wanting to move here. I’ve been here for most of my life – of course I’ve fallen into the category of last guy in wants to close the gate – but if you’re in the real estate business, Fort Worth is the place to be. Economists tell us that Fort Worth, Texas, is the place to be in the United States for business and residential.”


Bethany Oram Caroline Arnette and Sharon Crockett

Sharon Crockett (agent, Cultural District office) on why she chose Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty …

“I chose Briggs before the merger, so I’ve been with them initially. I chose them because of Robbie’s reputation in the community. I had several friends that had either worked with him in the past or just knew about him as far as integrity and business skills, and that really steered me here because I could have gone a lot of other places.”


Sara Richardson and Debbie Reynolds

Debbie Reynolds (President, Jewel Charity) & Sara Richardson (Donor Relations Manager, Jewel Charity) on what to expect to see at the 2015 Jewel Charity Ball …

“It’s a secret, but we have had a phenomenal response from our donors this year. We are going to have the latest in technology. Attendees will not be disappointed at this year’s ball.” – Debbie

“This year’s ball will be more of an experience rather than just a fancy-dress ball. In Fort Worth, we are the event of the season. We have earned that reputation and we live up to that every year. – Sara


Kathryn and Lowell Bryan Linda Carothers and Laura Spann

Laura Spann (Director of Sales, Mira Vista Office) on how the move to Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty has made a difference …

“The opportunity that we are giving our agents. We have already had one of our Briggs Freeman agents, Paige Stevenson, that showed her Tumbling Trail listing to someone from Dubai. This was a perfect reiteration of why we chose Briggs Freeman.”


Allison Hayden & Candy Evans 2 - Fort Worth event - 10-19-15

Allison Hayden (agent, Cultural District office) on what makes Fort Worth’s Downtown so special …

“Because it’s so nice! The people here are lovely. It’s the livability – easy to walk, easy to get into places, easy to get out. It’s just growing and I can’t say enough nice things about it.”


Robbie Briggs greeting guest with Carol Van Hook - Fort Worth Even - 10-19-15

Robbie Briggs (President and CEO, Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty) on the opportunity in Fort Worth …

“We are so excited to be here at The Modern Art Museum across from our office. It is so nice of Fort Worth to give us all of this beautiful space to look at. Honestly, we have a great office, a great group of people here, and I couldn’t be more thankful to be here tonight.”


Caroline Arnette (PR & Community Relations Correspondent, Fort Worth) on the Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty focus on community involvement …

“We are so excited about the growth of the city and getting involved in many of the great organizations that are in Fort Worth such as our sponsorships with Fort Worth Library, Jewel Charity Ball and The Art Station.”
