For Claire Dewar, an Executive Vice President at Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty, the real estate business all comes down to tenacity, hard work and amazing market knowledge.

Claire Dewar

As she celebrates her 30th year in real estate, Dewar leads a group just named the Top Team Producer for 2013, the sixth year in a row she has ranked as a Top Producer for Briggs Freeman.

Dewar says the incredible pace of the real estate market will last several more years, with continued corporate relocation to business-friendly Dallas. That will only increase demand for homes in close-in neighborhoods.
