In the fast-moving waters of today’s real estate market, it takes strength, experience and savvy to navigate the most successful sales. That’s why sellers are choosing to list their homes with a brokerage that demonstrates expert neighborhood knowledge, cutting edge marketing and a global network that reaches buyers wherever they live.

“I chose to list with Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty because their commitment to marketing is like no other. I was blown away by how they advertised my home,” said one recent client.

“As a business traveler I see the Sotheby’s International Realty® sign representing great properties all over the world,” said a client making a corporate move. “I knew their reputation and knew that my home’s sale would be handled with the utmost professionalism—and it was.”

“When we decided to move our family from Dallas to Southlake, we went with a company that has agents and offices throughout the Metroplex. Our agent was incredibly well-connected in both cities. She handled the sale of our house in the Park Cities and helped us find a great new home near the schools we wanted in Southlake.”
