As the fourth-most populous metro area in the country and one of nation’s top job-producing regions, the Dallas-Fort Worth area attracts thousands of new people every year. Among these are some of the nation’s wealthiest residents looking for top-of-the-line properties. When these individuals and families relocate to Dallas or within the city, they look to a small group of elite real estate agents to help them. Not only do the agents on this list have access to exclusive houses for sale that are unlisted or private and new listings that are held for premier buyers, but they have access to elite, qualified, and motivated buyers.
Top Realtors are deep wells of information, holding relevant information in their heads like computers. It is not uncommon for the Realtors on this list to be able to instantly recall square footage, unique features, and even the name of the original builder or architect, but they can advise clients on what it will cost to do certain updates, on who to hire to do the work, who the previous owners, and how many times it’s been under contract. Combined with their superior understanding of the market, school districts, and resale value, this inside information helps make these Realtors the best of the best.
To come up with this exclusive list of the top ten real estate agents in Dallas, we considered a number of factors, including customer service, reputation among peers, elite listings, the exclusivity of the neighborhoods they work in and clients who trust them, and the value of their transactions and listings.
Many of the Realtors on this list with careers spanning decades have not only survived the ups and downs the Dallas real estate market, but have thrived even in these difficult times. Others are newcomers to the real estate game who have quickly proven themselves to be able to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the established crowd.
