As we gear up for another exciting year with the Becky Frey team, we look back on the success we had in 2014. With over $86 million in sales last year, Becky credits her success to hard work, a fantastic team, great marketing, the power of the Sotheby’s brand network, and an incredible support staff. After the Awards Ceremony held at the lovely Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth on February 12, 2015, President & CEO of Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty, Robbie Briggs, sat down with our Fearless Leader to briefly discuss her best year yet.

DFW’s Economic Forecast was presented at Highland Park Village Theatre
Dallas is a hot city for young professionals and big company relos … We have been learning more and thought we should share a few resources for the real facts and opinions about why our city is so attractive:
TIME Magazine published an issue with the cover title The United States of Texas with this article about the “10 Reasons”. To confirm these reasons and many more, Mike Rosa, Senior VP of Economic Development at Dallas Regional Chamber, presented amazing economic, geographic, and logistic facts at Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s Intl’ Realty’s weekly meeting. Did you know that DFW has almost as many tech jobs as Houston and Austin COMBINED? And the DFW area produces over 30% of the state’s economy, yet we are ~25% of the population?
If you are looking for verification or more reasons, the Chamber’s website is a great resource for DFW facts: Cost of Living, Taxes, Economic Indicators, Schools, Salaries, Transportation, and more. Check it out … www.dallaschamber.org

Coinciding with Mayor Mike Rawlings annual Homeless Week, Keep Dallas warm is a community-based initiative aimed at providing gently worn coats and clothing to every homeless and underprivileged person in the city of Dallas.
The idea began two years ago when Dallasite Jim Silcock came up with a plan to donate $10,000 worth of coats to Dallas’ homeless men, women and children. By reaching out to shelter and homeless advocates at Community Crossroads, The Stewpot and The Bridge, silcock calculated that a mere 1,800 coats would help every homeless person in Dallas to have a warmer winter. An estimated 3,600 coats and clothing items would meet the needs of the underprivileged and impoverished. Silcock has worked closely with Wes Goyer, owner of St. Bernard Sports, who generously donated outerwear items for the effort.
