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.

Thanks to Downtown Dallas Inc. and You+Dallas for the vision for this glimpse into today’s Dallas. It’s beautiful!
“Downtown is multi-dimensional; it is an urban environment in which to live, work and play. Anchored by Neiman Marcus, having held a vibrant presence in Downtown for 105 years, there are 250 bars, restaurants and lounges, and 300 events hosted a year in Downtown alone. Last year, Dallas-Fort Worth was ranked as the number one sports area in the country, thanks to our 2011 NBA World Champion Dallas Mavericks, and two-time ALCS Champions the Texas Rangers.
Public transportation is easy to navigate with the Dallas Area Rapid Transit. Beginning and ending in Downtown, it is the largest light rail system in North America. Downtown has the largest urban arts district in the entire country, including the Dallas Symphony Orchestra directed by Jaap van Zweden, the Dallas Museum of Art, the Dallas Opera and more.
It is important to experience Downtown; don’t be a spectator, be a participant. Downtown Dallas, Inc. is passionate about where the city is now and where it is going in the future. Come experience the ongoing excitement in urban, legendary, smart and modern Downtown Dallas.”
Five acres of shared, public green space will deck over the existing Woodall Rodgers Freeway in downtown Dallas to create a pleasing link between the Arts District and Uptown. Construction has started and opening is expected in early 2012. I’m happy to share this new animation that details the design and features of The Park from kristin gray.

This is going to be one of the greatest things that happens to Dallas of our time: The Performing Arts Center has raised an unspeakable amount of money in private donations to fulfill a 30 year dream in completing new arts venues for music, performances, lectures, education and entertainment in Dallas’ Arts District. It is now a reality and the AT&T Performing Arts Center celebrates it’s Grand Opening starting October 12th.
You can click here for more information, but, I want to remind you to save the date of October 18th to spend it in the Arts District with friends and family. All the venues are open to the public and free entertainment all day long throughout the district – this is the day to see all of this incredible new architecture. Fireworks are in the plans and then Hunter Sullivan and his 14-piece band have a free concert in the Plaza at One Arts until 10pm.
See you there!
The developer is so confident about the value of these condos that she is offering a buyback program.
Lucy Billingsley is showing her confidence in One Arts Plaza and the lifestyle in the Dallas Arts District. She has created a buyback program that proves the value of high rise homes at One Arts. I’ve had these homes co-listed with Claire Dewar for about a year now. There are 15 condos remaining priced from $700’s to $3.5-million. One Arts is owner-occupied, so Lucy wants to protect the investment of the original owners and their confidence in this arts-centric neighborhood. This buyback program also protects the investment of new buyers and we want them to feel this confidence too. Click here to read the Dallas Business Journal article.
