Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty knows real estate. The company has been part of the community for over 50 years, and we connect people and make deals happen. Since the company began, there always has been an emphasis on finding and developing the best sales team possible, which shares the firm’s philosophy and beliefs.

That philosophy is to deliver a luxury experience to each of the firm’s clients, no matter the price point of their homes. It means that agents need to be trusted advisors to their clients and always put their clients’ best interests first. It is a belief that clients do not represent transactions but relationships. It requires being connected with the community and supporting its growth. And it results in handling all business and all situations with integrity and professionalism.

That philosophy also includes being known for innovation and continual commitment to growth and development. That could translate into being the first to try a new marketing strategy, recruiting and retaining the top agents from across the community and opening new offices in areas where sales are growing. It also means traveling domestically and internationally to promote the properties we represent while attracting buyers to Dallas and finding ways to highlight in what we publish what is unique and special about each of the neighborhoods we serve.

Briggs Freeman Sotheby´s International Realty takes pride in taking care of everything for our clients – from lawn service to arranging financing. As our President and CEO Robbie Briggs has stated, “What does Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty want to do? We want to get into the hearts of our clients. Getting into the mind? That’s a transaction. Getting into the heart? That’s a relationship. You’ve made a friend – a friend you really can serve.”

From his experience with living in China for three years, Robbie understands just how small and interconnected the world has become. His strategic decision to partner with the Sotheby’s brand precisely aims to bring the world to Dallas and Dallas to the world. Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty lives to give the “Extraordinary” as it serves its clients, community and world.

Joining With Sotheby’s International Realty

President and CEO Robbie Briggs proudly announces that his firm has joined the Sotheby’s International Realty® network. The firm’s new name is Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty. The announcement comes on the heels of the company’s 50th anniversary.

“Looking ahead, we realized that we were ready for a bold, strategic move of growth. The Sotheby’s International Realty brand is as important as any element to Briggs Freeman. The melding of the two company’s technologies will provide increased power and strength to attract buyers and investors from all over the world,” said Briggs. The firm has enjoyed a rich legacy as the area’s oldest boutique firm for premier properties.

The company’s roots date back to the beginning of Ben R. Briggs Real Estate, established in 1960. Briggs Freeman’s website in 2008 was ranked #3 in the nation and #1 in Texas by REAL Trends, Inc., and 1000WATT Consulting after the two firms studied the Websites of the top 500 brokerage firms in the country. That ranking is uncontested today. Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty has developed social media outlets as well as iPad and mobile platforms to help buyers.

“The success we have enjoyed can be attributed to a remarkable record of relationship-building and client service among our outstanding team of professionals,” said Briggs. “We are honored to have them representing us in the marketplace.”

Our firm specializes in the sale of fine homes in Highland ParkUniversity ParkUptown/DowntownTurtle CreekBluffviewPreston Hollow, LakewoodNorth DallasSouthlakeColleyvilleWestlake, and other notable neighborhoods, as well as selected farm and ranch properties around the region. Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty has had significant sales recently in Plano, Southlake, and Frisco.

The firm’s team of professionals is client-focused and steeped in a tradition of outstanding service. Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty associates live and work in the communities that they serve, giving them valuable insight into this highly specialized market niche.

When Briggs Realtors and Charles Freeman Realtors merged with a common vision in 1993, they brought together over 73 years of experience. Melding traditions of integrity, expertise and a commitment to the client, the firm has grown into a legend in the community and the entire real estate industry.

The new partnership with Sotheby’s International Realty network will provide an even broader reach to the firm’s clients. In one respect, however, Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty will continue as it always has: Live to give the “Extraordinary” as they serve their clients, community and world.
