In response to tremendous market growth in Fort Worth, luxury firm Briggs Freeman Sotheby's International Realty announced plans, in a Dec. 15, 2014 press release, to open an office in the city by early 2015.
Fort Worth is the fastest-growing big city in the United States, according to U.S. Census Bureau data released this month. Its growth from 2000 to 2013 outranked any other Texas city by at least 15 percent. Fort Worth grew more than 42 percent in that period.
Having lived in China for several years, president and CEO Robbie Briggs said he understands just how small and interconnected the world has become, furthering the need to expand west and serve the entire Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.
In the past several years, Fort Worth has experienced tremendous economic growth, from major corporate relocations to increased infrastructure and residential development. The firm hopes to better serve Fort Worth by offering the local, regional and national exposure of an established global brand.
"We are so excited. I've always wanted to open an office in Fort Worth because I know its importance and love the city," says Briggs. "The world views the DFW Metroplex as one market, but we understand each city has its own unique character and personality. Together, with the leadership and guidance of local businesses and influencers, we can deliver our world-class brand and services to the world-class city of Fort Worth.
"We want to get into the hearts of our clients by providing a luxury experience regardless of price point, and earning trust through continual commitment to innovation, growth and development. We are grateful for the welcoming spirit of Fort Worth and look forward to honoring this great city by building those relationships and delivering on that promise."
Briggs Freeman Sotheby's International Realty is the oldest privately held real estate boutique in Dallas, with more than 250 associates in six offices including Dallas, Lakewood, Uptown, The Ballpark and Southlake.
